Gisele Bündchen was one of Victoria's secret supermodels, so when she left the company in 2006, people shook comprehensively. The model recently opened in her book why she decided to make that change, even though the company paid her about 80 percent of her total income.

"During the first five years, I felt comfortable model model in lingerie, but when time passed, I felt less and less sad to be photographed and went on the track with just a bikini or a thong," she said. "Give me a tail, a coat, wings, please, anything to cover me a little!"

Bündchen signed with VS when she was only 19, and she was one of the first high-fashun ~ models to cross the catalog's brand. Between all shopping, commercial shots and travel, she was exhausted at the time of renewal of her contract in 2006.

"I was really grateful for the opportunity and financial security that the company had given me, but I was in another place in my life, and I was not sure I would continue to work there," she wrote.

So, of course, she decided to leave in a very normal way. JK! This is the low-key genius method she claimed to make the decision.

"I curled up two small pieces of paper [with the words ‘yes’ and ‘no’ on them] and placed them in an empty teacup, "she explained;" I closed my eyes and had an intention: what paper I chose would be to my highest and best me and be the right decision. "

Gisele stopped picking no, and it was the end of her time with VS. As unconventional as her decision was, she does not regret the election all these years later. Plus, someone in Victoria's Secret was the one who set her up with future husband Tom Brady. Fun fact!
