Pictures: Model Candice Swanepoel Gets Revenge on Bullies

Publish date:

Victoria's Secret model Candice Swanepoel, 23, recently revealed that she was bullied at school for her small size. However, these days she poses in a hot shoot for GQ UK for some sweet revenge (pictures below).

Swanepoel revealed to the magazine that she felt like an outsider while growing up in South America: "A year before I got scouted, I would watch a lot of FashionTV. At school, I got teased because I was so thin and awkward-looking. But the girls on TV looked similar to me."

The Daily Mail reports that she was discovered in 2003 at age 15 at a Durban flea market: "I would say to my mom 'The girls at school are teasing me, but I look like those girls on TV'. A year later, someone took me to an agency and that's it."

"I put all my eggs in one basket when I left South Africa. I put my head down and worked my ass off. And look where it got me."

"Revenge is always… I know it sounds terrible, but it does feel good to show those people."

She added: "Whenever you feel down, you can check on Twitter and feel better about yourself, because it's only people who like you," Swanepoel said.
