Supermodel Heidi Klum has brushed off criticism of her weight by refusing to diet - insisting she already has the perfect figure for the catwalk.
The 35-year-old mum of three was verbally attacked by German designer Wolfgang Joop last month (Feb09) for being "too heavy" to model.
But Klum insists she has never been the type to starve herself - as looking after her children and pop star partner Seal is more than enough to keep her in shape.
She says, "I was never a diet sort of person. But when I started to model, I knew already that I would have to watch what I ate and for example, stop eating wiener schnitzel (Austrian dish of fried veal). My children are my best workout and I am of course also busy with my husband."
