Weight criticisms and diets come with the job when you’re a model, but Supermodel Heidi Klum has fired back at recent claims that she doesn’t have the “figure” necessary for the catwalk, refusing to give in to their pressures, claiming she has never been the type of person to diet.

The 35-year-old mom of three was verbally attacked by German designer Wolfgang Joop last month for being apparently being “too heavy” to model. Despite this, Klum has come out in an interview with Brunte Magazine refusing to diet, claiming her husband and kids keep her plenty active.

“I was never a diet sort of person,” the 35-year-old German Supermodel told ‘Brunte’, last week.

“My children are my best workout,” Klum added with a twinkle in her eye, “and I am of course also busy with my husband.”

The German stunner, now an Emmy award-nominated host of ‘Project Runway’ and ‘Germany’s Next Top Model’, hit back at Joop’s claims saying:

“Everyone is entitled to their opinion.”

Despite Klum’s “whatever” attitude, many are rallying in her defense.

A spokesperson for Klum told the New York Post, “Wolfgang is obviously trying to revive his sagging career and get press for himself by riding Heidi’s coattails.”

Klum’s Project Runway mentor Tim Gunn has also come forward in support of the model, blasting Joop’s allegations as hurtful and absurd, telling the ‘New York Daily’:

“It’s totally ridiculous! (Heidi) is a sensitive soul, and it’s very troubling to her. If she’s fat, other women should throw themselves off a train. I can wrap my hand around her bicep.”

Earlier this week, Klum was also in the news after she wowed L.A. by handing out ‘Victoria’s Secret’ lingerie to customers on the streets.
