Heidi Klum 'Project Runway' Host Doesn't Mind Being Nude At The Beach With Boyfriend; Responds To Critics Calling Her "Cougar"
The 43-year-old Project Runway host is now the cover of the December issue of Ocean Drive magazine. In the magazine, she candidly discussed her 30-year-old partner and her tropical getaways.
She admitted that in their vacations at the tropics, she would always go topless and would not mind being photographed. She explained that she grew up in nude beach with her parents so that made her a confident nudist.
Klum added that she has no problems of being nude at all because she feels when doing it. If the beach is a remote place with little no people around, it is automatic for her to lose the bikini top.
The America's Got Talent judge blamed the paparazzi that made her nudity and public display of affection a negative thing whenever she's in vacation. She said she's not doing PDA on the beach with tons of people having their leisure time.
Unfortunately for the couple, paparazzi follow them everywhere, in a helicopter or behind the bush or a boat or in more desperate times, in scuba gear. Klum complains that these paparazzi frames them as if they are showing their nude bodies to the public in the beach when in fact, they're not.
Klum has always defended herself on the choice of being topless in her vacations. Last August, she told Entertainment Weekly that she was not wearing her bikini top during a trip to Caribbean because she's a European German girl and they love to go topless to prevent the tan lines.
She also defended herself from critics calling her a cougar for having Schnabel as her new partner after she got divorced from soul singer Seal. According to her, their relationship is not affected by the 13-year age difference.
Klum said that she and Schnabel have an amazing connection and they are madly in love with each other. For now, opinions of people on their age difference does not matter for her as long as they are having an amazing time together.
