In an exclusive interview, Claudia speaks about fashion shows, her shyness and her life in the countryside. As she recalls why she lives temporarily in the suburbs of London, she is quick to mention her work on a film with her ​​husband, Matthew Vaughn, producer and director. "I helped him for all his films, says Claudia - including Stardust and Kick-Ass franchise - but over the years I invested more and more, as he is more involved in my projects. We have begun to be much closer.

The country life is not new for the couple, who, harassed by paparazzi, decided to move there 1 year ago in Suffolk, southeast England, with Caspar, eleven years old,  Clementine, nine, and Cosima three years. "We did not want our children to grow this way. It was not healthy. Today they are enrolled in the countryside, away from the media. God bless. "

Living in the countryside might seem boring to a star like Claudia. However, she explains her choice ensuring us that she had always always suffered from terrible shyness. "When I became a model, I did not say a word, she says. I was dumb. If someone spoke to me, I turned red, and I prayed not to be next to the lens. I hated being the center of attention. "

Today, Claudia remains one of the most popular top model, even if she is selective about the projects she supports. "To say no, you have to be comfortable in your skin: it is my case, she says. I found the balance, and while I am still shy, I feel comfortable and safe. I also trust my status in the world of fashion. I worked hard for many years to get there. "

In fact, Claudia gives thanks to her shyness, she says, that prevented her from going wrong in the 90s, unlike her peers. "I do not like the taste of alcohol and cigarettes, yet, believe me, I tried! she says. But the first ten years of my career, I was so shy that I did not propose anything. I did not see what was happening. This is probably what saved me. "

Fashion still matters a lot to Claudia, but after a quarter of a century, it has never been so easy with her body, her life and work. "It's been ages since I did not go to a fashion show, she said. But when I go, and I look at the models, I say "thank you God, it's not me." "
