After being so completely focused on your baby for months on end, Gisele says it was tough to flip the switch and go back to work like nothing happened. In fact, the world’s highest paid supermodel was apparently a little worried at first that she wasn’t going to be able to get back to the top of her game.
Of course, she managed to figured it out.
“I got to the studio and I felt like I was E.T. — whoa, what’s going on? Hair and makeup?”
“I’d been in my house, in a cocoon with my kids, my husband, my dogs. Usually, as I walk through the door into that atmosphere, I already feel different. There’s a button that goes On and I’m On.
“This time it wasn’t like that. I’ve been really inside with my husband and my baby, and everything is changed. But the client still deserves respect and professionalism, and I got a little bit concerned because I wasn’t feeling it.”
I love that she made an E.T. reference in there. Maybe she recently and Tom recently introduced 2-and-1/2-year-old John to the Spielberg classic. Then again, 2-and-1/2 is probably a little too young to enjoy blanket-covered aliens in baskets.
