Gisele Bundchen April 2009 Harper's Bazzar Magazine

Posted on Mar 12, 2009 at 9:56AM

28-year-old Gisele Bundchen is the cover girl for the April 2009 issue of Harper’s Bazaar magazine.

A newlywed and new step-mother, Gisele admits there was a time five or six years ago when she didn't treat her body very kindly. 

“I was drinking a lot of red wine, smoking a pack and a half of cigarettes a day, and eating cheeseburgers all day. I was treating my body, which is my temple and my best friend, as my worst enemy. I was almost punishing myself. I was so tired. I was working so much and I was numb.”

Gisele said she got out of her slump by taking six months off and spending some time in her home country of Brazil.

 “If you are happy, you can give happiness. If you don’t love yourself and if you are unhappy with yourself, you can’t give anything else but that.”
