Los Angeles: Supermodel Heidi Klum says she looks into the lens and thinks about her boyfriend while she is on the sets.
“I don't really have a ritual before I shoot. I like looking fit all the time - not just for a shoot - as you never know when your clothes come off! When I first started modelling 20 years ago, I had to make some overall lifestyle changes...
"It's been a big part of my job to make sure that I'm fit on a regular basis. For me, that means drinking a lot of water, eating super healthy and making sure I sleep eight hours a day. That doesn't always work with my schedule, but I try! I also try to hit the treadmill two-three times a week," Klum told peoplestylewatch.com.
The 42-year-old does have a few modelling tricks up her sleeve, and one of them hits really close to home.
“I remember when I first started shooting swimwear and lingerie, and the advice photographers always gave me was to not over-pose,” she revealed.
“No overarching, duck faces or strange poses so it doesn't look like you are trying too hard. Even though (photographer) Francesco Carrozzini is behind the camera, I look into the lens and I think about my boyfriend," added the model, whose been dating Vito Schnabel, 27, for over a year.
