When you're a world-famous supermodel who walked the runway as a Victoria's Secret Angel for 13 years, graced the cover of Sports Illustrated magazine, appeared in a number of best-selling movies, hosted a bunch of TV shows and successfully launched several clothing lines, you don't really need recognition to know you're kind of ... awesome!
Yup, it's Heidi Klum. The 42-year-old German supermodel, businesswoman and a proud mother of four whose face might be familiar to you from 'America's Got Talent' and 'Project Runway.'
Sadly, Klum is also a proof that no matter how smart, successful, good-looking and overall great you are, there will always be people feeling (for whatever reason) entitled to judge you.
Like, the Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, for example.
When talking to a New York Times reporter about how he "can survive dissing John McCain and rating Heidi Klum when that would be a death knell for someone like Scott Walker," Trump, 69 boldly stated:
"Sometimes I do go a little bit far ... Heidi Klum. Sadly, she's no longer a 10."
But Heidi Klum wouldn't be Heidi Klum is she wouldn't have handled this situation with grace.
After reading Trump's sexist comment about her 'dropping value,' Klum posted a video on her social accounts that pokes fun at the absurdity of his remarks.
"Personally, I have no idea what I have to do with the election. Why do I come into play with this election? Like, that doesn't make sense to me, to be honest with you," Klum told Access Hollywood.
Klum also said she found the situation to be "kind of funny" and thought she'd raise the bar even higher. However, she admits that the act of assigning numbers to women based on their looks is not funny and even demeaning.
'Women who support their families, who have children, who make their lunches, drive them all over the place, work at the same time ... We do so many things, so in my book, every woman is a 10,' she said in an interview.
Trump's treatment of women recently has been raising some eyebrows, especially after the presidential candidate's offensive remarks towards Fox News' Megyn Kelly when he called her "not very tough and not very sharp."
The incident with Heidi Klum is yet another stone in Trump's shoe. And it's a big one.
