Heidi Klumhas definitely proven to be more than just a pretty face.
Sure, the German-born beauty could have simply gotten by on her looks after launching her modeling career at the age of 18, becoming a Victoria's Secret Angel a few years later and then landing on the cover of 1998'sSports Illustratedswimsuit issue. But Klum clearly wasn't content on simply striking a pose and appearing in such fashion magazines asElle,VogueandMarie Claire.
The hottie dubbed "The Body" also tried her hand at acting, making appearances on TV series likeSpin City,Sex and the City, How I Met Your MotherandParks & Recreation. She also showed up on the big screen with roles in the moviesBlow Dry,Ella EnchantedandThe Life and Death of Peter Sellers, in which she was cast as Ursula Andress.
In 2004, Klum became the host and one of the executive producers for the competitive reality TV seriesProject Runway. The show, where up and coming fashion designers competed to have their lines shown at fashion week, was an immediate success. While continuing to work on the popular program, Klum also decided to host the reality showGermany's Next Top Modelin her native country as well as take on judging duties during the 2013 season of NBC'sAmerica's Got Talent.
Klum has also ventured into the world of designing, having created a line of shoes for Birkenstock, jewelry for Mouawad and a clothing line for Jordache Jeans.
With such a strong work ethic, it's no surprise that in May 2011, Klum placed second onForbes' list of the world's top-earning models after raking in an estimated $20 million that year.
On the personal side of things, Klum announced in 2003 that she and then-boyfriendFlavio Briatorewere expecting their first child together. However, the two soon split up and Klum began datingSealwhile still pregnant. On May 4, 2004, she gave birth to daughterLeni, with the British singer by her side. The couple married on May 10, 2005 and had three additional children together—Henry,JohanandLou—before Klum filed for divorce in April 2012.
