Celebrities are either going to have to start timing their publicity rounds better—or their breakups.
As it happens, Heidi Klum is the latest A-lister to be haunted by the delayed publication of an ill-timed and awkwardly gushy interview about her now estranged ex. While the supermodel ostensibly sat down with InStyle UK months ago, back when she and Seal were one of Hollywood's poster couples for longevity, her sound bites have only now, unfortunately, gone to print.
Cue the slight cringe.
"I don't know why we work, my husband and I. We just do," she told the British magazine's March issue, per an excerpt obtained by the New York Post. "We are black and white—yin and yang."
No and more.
"To me, his beautiful face, great body, amazing heart, voice, his ability to be a loving, caring person and father…what can I say?
"I have a lot of fun with him," she went on. "He's off the cuff. He's not fixed in his ways. And he knows how to handle me. It's always been really passionate between us."
In retrospect, it was an unfortunate conversational tact, but it had nothing on her next point, in which she spoke about their tradition of renewing their vows—something she said she hoped would continue throughout their years together.
"I'm determined to mark our wedding every year with a really great party," she told the magazine. "We all work very hard and time goes by so fast and you can stumble over years without symbolic peaks in your life to remember—so we create those."
Something tells us this interview is one she'll remember, as well.
