'It made me feel insecure.'

Gisele Bundchen's history of rejection should make you feel better about yourself, right? Well, it probably doesn't, what with her still being Gisele Bundchen and all, but still, dig this: The supermodel tells People that early in her career, it was a real struggle, OK? She was rejected an eerily specific 42 times before landing a Vogue cover in 1999.

"I remember some people telling me my nose was too big or my eyes were too small, that I could never be on a magazine cover," she says. "It wasn't easy to be 14 and hear that kind of criticism. It made me feel insecure." What she doesn't realize is that normal 14-year-olds are perfectly capable of feeling insecure all by themselves without someone saying they're not quite beautiful enough for the cover. But thanks for trying to be relatable!
