In a recent confession that shook the world, Claudia Schiffer declared that there was a time early in her career when she could have sold out her self-respect. In return for a whole lot of money, one million dollars to be exact, she was asked to be an Arab prince’s trophy bimbo.
The offer reminded one of a real life “Indecent Proposal” a la Robert Redford and Demi Moore. But the supermodel, who has graced the covers of many fashion magazines throughout the world, says she declined the offer.
The fact is that if money was the whole point of the game of life than one could have chosen to be a high class courtesan. But decency, integrity and morals come first. Claudia, who is currently married with three kids, says that she passed on the offer which was than taken on by another model.
However, Claudia Schiffer has been careful enough not to name that super-rich Arab prince or the model who became her substitute. The Arab potentate had wanted a date with Claudia and it was supposed to be a candlelit dinner.
She said that all she really wanted in life was to be able to take a stroll down the street with her head held high. What kind of life is it to have done a deed for which you later on hang your head down in shame?
The blonde bombshell furthermore said that she felt bad about the term “supermodel”. There was something very odd and strange about it. Somehow, it did not do full justice to the humanity and personality of the individual it applied to.
In fact, the sexy siren that is Claudia Schiffer considers the word to be more of a slur. She furthermore spoke of how she was such a shy person at the beginning of her career.
Moreover, the experience of modeling was quite overwhelming since there were so many crowds awaiting them once the catwalk shows were over. They had to be whisked away to their cars by security.
