Gisele Bundchen was told her "nose was too big" and her "eyes too small" as a teenage model.
The Brazilian beauty weathered the criticism to become one of the world's wealthiest models, since starting her career in the '90s.
Gisele, the most successful supermodel in the world, has now earned more than a reported $386 million since 2001, according to forbes.com. Something that may not have happened if it wasn't for the support of her father who gave her the courage to continue when her unique looks were criticised in her early modelling years.
"I remember some people telling me my nose was too big or my eyes were too small, that I could never be on a magazine cover," she shares in an interview with People magazine.

Supermodel Gisele Bundchen's sportsman husband Tom Brady's four-game suspension from American football League has been upheld over his alleged involvement in the 'Deflategate' scandal in federal court.
The New England Patriots star was handed the punishment in May (15), after it was determined that Brady must have known game balls were underinflated during his team's 45-7 win against the Indianapolis Colts in last season's American Football Conference title game in January (15).
The Patriots, with Brady as quarterback, went on to win the Super Bowl in February (15).
League officials subsequently suspended the footballer for four games without pay, while the Patriots organisation was fined $1 million (£690,000), and team employees John Jastremski and James MCNally were suspended indefinitely for their behind-the-scenes roles in illegally taking the air out of footballs.
