From the outside, Miranda Kerr’s life looks pretty perfect — she is one of the world’s biggest supermodels, runs a successful skin care brand, and is dating a billionaire.
But while Kerr counts her blessings, she also admits she has had to battle with rejection before, particularly in the early stages of her career.
The model visited the set of Australia’s Next Top Model this week, where she gave contestants some sage advice about learning to deal with criticism.
“Inevitably, rejection is going to happen in this career,” Kerr told the girls on set.
“I’ve had so much rejection myself, and it’s because I didn’t take it personally and I just had fun with it; that is why I feel I’ve continued my career as long as I have.”
According to the Daily Telegraph, Kerr also added that she had never imagined she’d still be in front of the camera two decades later.
“I never ever envisioned that it would last this long,” the model admitted. “I can’t believe I am modeling 20 years later; it is kind of wild really.”
