Gisele Bundchen Reveals Her Battle With Anxiety And Suicidal Thoughts!

Perfect On The Outside

Gisele Reveals Her Struggles With Anxiety & Suicidal Thoughts

Gisele Bundchen is proof that nobody’s life is perfect.

The supermodel may certainly seem like she has it all, and has had it all forever, but she’s battled some serious demons in her lifetime, and lived to tell the tale.

In her new memoir, Lessons: My Path To A Meaningful Life, the 38-year-old reveals that she once battled anxiety so severe she even considered suicide. And now she’s willing to be more forthcoming and share her struggles. In an interview with People, she said:

“Things can be looking perfect on the outside, but you have no idea what’s really going on. I felt like maybe it was time to share some of my vulnerabilities, and it made me realize, everything I’ve lived through, I would never change, because I think I am who I am because of those experiences.”

Things certainly looked perfect when she was the highest-paid Victoria’s Secret Angel and dating Leonardo DiCaprio, but after suffering a panic attack during a flight, she developed a fear of enclosed spaces like tunnels and elevators.

She revealed:

“I had a wonderful position in my career, I was very close to my family, and I always considered myself a positive person, so I was really beating myself up. Like, ‘Why should I be feeling this?’ I felt like I wasn’t allowed to feel bad. But I felt powerless. Your world becomes smaller and smaller, and you can’t breathe, which is the worst feeling I’ve ever had.”

As the attacks got worse, Gisele became plagued with suicidal thoughts:

“I actually had the feeling of, ‘If I just jump off my roof, this is going to end, and I never have to worry about this feeling of my world closing in.’ ”

After visiting a doctor, she decided she didn’t want to rely on medication like Xanax to feel better:

“The thought of being dependent on something felt, in my mind, even worse, because I was like, ‘What if I lose that [pill]? Then what? Am I going to die?’ The only thing I knew was, I needed help.”

It was at this point that she completely changed her lifestyle:

“I had been smoking cigarettes, drinking a bottle of wine and three mocha frappacinos every day, and I gave up everything in one day. I thought, if this stuff is in any way the cause of this pain in my life, it’s gotta go.”

The catwalker also broke up with DiCaprio, after realizing she was feeling “alone” in her new journey. But, she looks back at the relationship with a fondness:

“Everyone who crosses our path is a teacher, they come into our lives to show us something about ourselves. And I think that’s what he was. What is good versus bad? I honor him for what he was.”

Very wise. Thank you, Gisele, for sharing your story.

Specifically, when she was asked about her reluctance to post pics of herself on Instagram as most models coming up these days do. She said:

“It’s not my generation — I have to be honest about that. I’m older, wiser. If I had to promote myself in the way girls modeling now have to do, forget it. I wouldn’t do it.”

Some folks got upset with the supermodel, calling her out for throwing shade at the younger models. She’s “older and wiser” than them??

Tom Brady Criticized For Kissing His Son ‘Too Long’ On The Lips!

Tom Brady isn’t afraid to show affection to his kids.

However, it seems the New England Patriots quarterback’s habit of kissing his youngsters on the lips has left a few feeling uncomfortable. Earlier this week, the NFL stud’s Facebook docuseries, Tom vs. Time, dropped its third episode.

Word to the wise — keep Tom Brady‘s daughter’s name out of your mouth.

The New England Patriots quarterback ferociously defended five-year-old Vivian Brady after WEEI‘s Alex Reimer referred to Gisele B├â┬╝ndchen‘s daughter as an “annoying little pissant.” In fact, the 40-year-old NFL stud was so infuriated by what Reimer said, that he ended his interview with the radio host’s station coworkers early on Monday.

Super Bowl LII is calling on all of America to root against the Pats cheer on their favorite teams!

The New England Patriots defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars in the AFC Championship game on Sunday, giving them the chance to tie the Pittsburgh Steelers for the most Super Bowl wins in franchise history.

While Pats fans are excited to see Tom Brady and co. attempt to earn their sixth ring — their third in the past four seasons — most of the country is rooting for the underdog opponents.

The Philadelphia Eagles became the NFC Champions over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, landing their first Super Bowl appearance since they first faced off against the Patriots in February 2005.

If that doesn’t make them enough of an underdog, the Eagles have technically never won a Super Bowl before. The last championship game the franchise won was in 1960, years before the NFL and AFL merged and birthed the big game into existence.

Needless to say, the high stakes rematch is tickling celebrity supporters, on both a hometown fan (we see you, Philly girl Pink!) and I’m-married-to-the-quarterback level. See what stars are rooting for their favorite teams and have already been recipients of trash talk (below)! (more…)
