(Newser) – “Talking with Gisele Bundchen about eating disorders is like talking with a pro athlete about steroids,” concludes Nate Penn in GQ magazine. An apt analogy for the "reigning symbol of female perfection." “Look, I’ve never met anyone who has it,” says the diplomatic Bundchen. Then: "Your questions are funny."

The industry favorite supermodel isn’t much more talkative when it comes to her love life.  On the aftermath of boyfriend Tom Brady’s Super Bowl loss: “All I have to say is that I’m really proud of him…I can’t talk for him, OK?” Nor when discussing her wealth. “I would like to know who this reporter is finding out these amounts…Because I haven’t seen it,”  she says of a reported $35 million earned in 2007.
