Photos of Gisele Bundchen in Harpers Bazaar

Gisele Bundchen was photographed by Peter Lindbergh for the April issue of Harper's Bazaar magazine. In the photo spread, Gisele recreates famous models' poses from the past including an iconic 50s pose by Verushka (seen above ) and the infamous Brooke Shields Calvin Klein jeans pose. Gisele discusses her marriage, motherhood and her career.

On Tom Brady and the gossip surrounding them: "Gossip is poison. Tom is a good guy. He has a very pure heart. He's very naive, almost like a child. That is my favorite quality about him. One thing that I thought was so amazing when I first met him is that he is innocent. He sees the world with colored glasses."

On family: "I want to have a big family. My parents have been together for 36 years, and that is what I want. I am in that place. It's all good in that part of my life. It's one part of my life that I'm learning about every day. I've been challenged a lot by it, but it's the most rewarding part."

On her old habits: "I was drinking a lot of red wine, smoking a pack and a half of cigarettes a day, and eating cheeseburgers all day. I was treating my body, which is my temple and my best friend, as my worst enemy. I was almost punishing myself. I was so tired. I was working so much, and I was numb."
