Gisele: I'm No Actress - Yet
While supermodel GISELE BUNDCHEN is excited about making her movie debut in the new comedy TAXI, she's refusing to call herself an actress - yet.
The Brazilian beauty, currently dating Hollywood actor LEONARDO DiCAPRIO, admits that while she's eager to branch out, she won't give herself any premature tags.
She says, "I'm a girl who takes pictures. Acting was just a fun thing."
And Bundchen admits the prejudices models face led her to initially turning down her role in Taxi, which also stars QUEEN LATIFAH and JIMMY FALLON.
She explains, "I'm a model, and people have this thing about models becoming actresses, which I think is stupid because CAMERON DIAZ was a model, CHARLIZE THERON was a model, UMA THURMAN was a model.
"And then I thought, 'I don't care what anyone thinks, because I really needed a challenge in my life.'
"I don't want to be one of those girls who's 30 and still doing modelling. You just repeat yourself."07/10/2004 08:54
