Voted among the Top 10 Hottest Supermodels of all time by The Hollywood Sentinel ®, the beautiful Gisele Bundchen appeared at the Duracell Power Lodge in Times Square with members of her family to help in the final push to power the numbers 2-0-0-9, which lit up as the New Year's Ball dropped. By pedaling on specially designed snowmobikes, the Bundchen family helped Duracell close in on its goal of collecting 230 pedaling hours, which generated enough energy to illuminate the '2009' sign once the ball drops on New Year's Eve in Times Square.
"I (was) so excited to have my family in town for Christmas and we (did) things you can only do in New York City, including being part of this great project Duracell has in Times Square," said Bundchen. "We pedal(ed) on the snowmobikes in support of the Agua Limpa Project which was started by my father, and provides clean drinking water to people in regions of Brazil." Bundchen adds, "So when we watch(ed) this year's New Year's Eve celebration in Times Square, the light we helped create (was) dedicated to the light that the Agua Limpa Project has brought to so many."
A beautiful woman, inside and out, Gisele is a dedicated environmentalist, and animal lover. In response to animal rights activists, and the use of fur in fashion issue, Gisele goes on the record stating, "I don't wear fur, and I understand their cause. I am the biggest animal lover in the world. I have four dogs and two horses, and I have rescued animals all my life."
In further model news, Tom Brady reportedly proposed to Gisele on a private jet on Christmas Eve, and her answer (sorry guys) was yes. Her parents were reportedly also on board.
In further stories, Gisele goes on the record about her sleeping habits. Gisele states, "Sometimes when it's too hot, I just sleep in my underwear. If it's colder, I sleep in pajamas. I don't like to feel closed in. I like no pillows. I like very fluffy beds. I sleep on my stomach and sometimes on my side, but never on my back..." Gisele reportedly also steals the blankets when she is sleeping next to a guy. Poor Mr. Brady. We're sure though, that somehow he'll still manage.
