Gisele Bundchen - Biography

 

Gisele Caroline BŁndchen (born July 20, 1980) is a Brazilian model and occasional film actress. According to Forbes, she is the highest-paid model in the world and also the sixteenth richest woman in the entertainment world, with an estimated $70 million fortune. BŁndchen also acts as a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations Environment Programme.

BŁndchen was born in the Brazilian town of TrÍs de Maio and grew up in Horizontina, Rio Grande do Sul, to V‚nia Nonnenmacher, a bank clerk pensioner, and Valdir BŁndchen, a university teacher and writer. She has five sisters ó Raquel, Graziela, Gabriela, Rafaela and her fraternal twin PatrŪcia, Gisele's junior by five minutes. BŁndchen is Roman Catholic and speaks Portuguese as her native language. She also speaks Spanish and English.
ď I was born in Horizontina, a town in the backcountry of (Brazilian) state Rio Grande do Sul. The town was once mainly colonized by Germans. In the school which I attended, learning German was actually obligatory from third grade on. But being out of touch with the language for such a long time, I unfortunately forgot it. [...] I belong to the sixth generation of my family in Brazil.

Originally, BŁndchen wanted to be a professional volleyball player and considered playing for the Brazilian team, Sogipa. While in school, BŁndchen was so thin that her friends used to call her "OlŪvia Palito" (Portuguese for Olive Oyl, Popeye's skinny girlfriend) and "Saracura" (a type of Brazilian shorebird).
In 1993, a then-13-year-old BŁndchen joined a modeling course with her sisters PatrŪcia and Gabriela at her mother's insistence. The following year, BŁndchen went to S„o Paulo on a school excursion to give them an opportunity to walk in a big city. In a shopping mall, while eating at McDonald's with her friends, BŁndchen was discovered by a modeling agency. She was subsequently selected for a national contest, Elite Look of the Year, in which she placed second ó Claudia Menezes, from Bahia, took first place. BŁndchen placed fourth in the world contest, held in Ibiza, Spain. In 1996, BŁndchen moved to New York City to begin her modeling career, debuting at Fashion Week.
