Irina Shayk felt ''insecure and ugly'' in a past relationship with the wrong man.
The 29-year-old model - who recently split from the soccer star after five years of dating - admitted she previously thought she had found the ''ideal man'' but things didn't turn out the way she hoped.
She told Spain's Hola magazine: ''I thought I had once found the ideal man but it didn't turn out that way. I think a woman feels ugly when she's got the wrong man at her side. I've felt ugly and insecure.''
The Sports Illustrated beauty is now on the lookout for a ''gentleman'' who treats her well.
She added: ''My ideal man is faithful, honest and a gentleman who knows how to treat women. I don't believe in men who make us feel unhappy, because they're boys not men.''
Irina recently revealed her ideal date would include ''a lot of food'' and an ''expensive bottle of champagne, because I'm Russian. I love an expensive bottle of champagne.''
Cristiano and Irina split over the Christmas period and he is rumoured to have already moved on with Spanish TV presenter Lucia Villalon.
The Portuguese star recently released a statement confirming their split, adding: ''I wish Irina the greatest happiness.''
It's time for a riot grrrl revolution.
