The 36-year-old Brazilian beauty, who recently walked the runway of the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show for the 18th time and has posed for racy and even naked photo shoots for magazines, revealed her new stance about stripping down in a recent Instagram post.
"I had received a call for the possibility of filming a sexy video of me to be posted and shared in social media," she wrote. "Even though I have done many of this type, something had changed in me, when a friend approached me to share that she was unhappy with her body."
"Then it made me think.... that everyday in my life, I wake up thinking, how do I look? Was I going to be accepted in my job?" she wrote. "And in that moment I realized that majority of woman probably wake up every morning trying to fit in a stereotype that society/social media/fashion etc imposed.... I thought that's not a way of living and beyond that.... that's not physically and mentally healthy, so I decided to make that change..... I will not take [off] my clothes anymore for [an] empty cause.....✨ #Embraceyouself #natureisbeautiful #naturalissexy #LOVEYOU."
