“Project Runway” host Heidi Klum is turning her back on marriage.
In the new issue of Marie Claire, the former runway model says she has no interest in walking down the aisle as a bride again.
Last April, Klum filed for divorce from her husband Seal after six years of marriage. Prior to their tumultuous split, the two renewed their vows every year on their anniversary. Although Klum is in love again with her bodyguard-turned-boyfriend Martin Kirsten, she doesn’t see marriage in their future.
“I don’t think so. No. No,” Klum told reporters. “I wanted to keep the memory of our wedding alive every year, that’s why I thought it would be fun to get married over and over. But now I don’t think it’s that important. I’m not angry about anything, but I don’t think I will. Maybe if I’m with someone for 15 or 20 years, and we do it in our old age as a fun thing to do … But I don’t have the urgency anymore.”
Klum and British-born singer Seal had four children together including Klum’s daughter with Italian businessman Flavio Briatore.
“People say, ‘Oh, God, how devastating to go through a divorce. Did I wish for this to happen to my family? No. But everyone is healthy we’re moving on with our lives,” Klum said. “If someone got [very sick], God forbid, that would be a real problem. It’s not what I wanted – it’s not what anyone wanted – but it’s not a real problem.”
Even though Klum is one of the world’s most popular sex symbols, she hasn’t warmed up to the idea of being a “cougar.”
“I can understand why a woman finds a young man attractive, because the truth is that when men get older, their shape changes,” she said. “Younger men train more, and when the clothes come off, it is nice to look at a sexy, ripped body. But I am realistic. I’m turning 40 next year; I don’t think I could deal with waking up next to a 25-year-old.”
