"I remember some people telling me my nose was too big or my eyes were too small," she reveals to People in a new interview, "that I could never be on a magazine cover."

But after getting turned down 40 different times, Bundchen finally found fame and signed a $25 million contracts with Victoria's Secret. But she says fame wasn't easy getting used to. "It brought a lot more attention to me, which is something I didn't feel very comfortable with,” she tells the mag. "To this day I still haven't gotten very used to it."
