In a revealing new interview with PORTER magazine, supermodel Gisele Bündchen talked about everything from her marriage to Tom Brady, to her infamous break-up with Leonardo DiCaprio. And Bündchen also discussed her incredible career with Victoria's Secret, and the clauses she had when wearing the brand's often-skimpy clothing.

Bündchen-who was the highest-paid model in the world for 15 consecutive years in a row-signed a contract with Victoria's Secret when she was just 19.

Per The Independent. In her book, Lessons: My Path to a Meaningful Life, Bündchen revealed, "For the first five years, I felt comfortable modeling in lingerie, but as time went on, I felt less and less at ease being photographed walking the runway wearing just a bikini or a thong. Give me a tail, a cape, wings-please, anything to cover me up a little!"

And in the model's new interview with PORTER magazine, Bündchen confirmed her growing unease with wearing revealing clothes. She explained, "I was always a person who asked, 'Can I please cover my butt?' In the studio I don’t mind, it’s very controlled. But if you’re on a runway, god knows. So, you’ll notice, I usually had a little skirt or cape to wear. They were always very kind and accommodating when I said I did not feel comfortable."

Speaking of her impressive credentials, the supermodel credits her success to her hard work: "I don’t know how I would have achieved anything in my life if I didn’t have discipline. Discipline is my best friend!"
