Orlando Bloom‘s statuesque girlfriend, Miranda Kerr, is hitting out at claims she’s lost weight after gaunt-looking pictures of the model emerged last week.
“The exaggerated poses for the shoot have made me appear thinner than normal from behind, but I am the same weight and measurements I have maintained for more than three years,” she tells Grazia Australia.
In the pictures Miranda, 25, looks unusually bony as she poses on the rooftop of the Museum of Contemporary Art in her hometown of Sydney, Australia, for the fashion magazine.
“I am conscious of not only maintaining but promoting a healthy lifestyle and I wouldn’t be able to sustain the hectic nature of my modeling commitments if I wasn’t 100 per cent committed to feeding my body the food, vitamins and minerals it needs.”
The shoot’s stylist Mark Vassallo confirms, “She’s as healthy as anything. High fashion models are a special breed. They have long legs and they’re very narrow through the body – that allows clothes to hang beautifully.
“Miranda has no problem with her body at all.”
Orlando’s girlfriend of two-years is releasing a book on nutrition later this year and says it’s her mission to help women everywhere accept their bodies.
“And that’s what I’m passionate about,” she tells Grazia, “trying to encourage young women to embrace themselves – especially because I am in the fashion world and I really don’t want girls to think they have to look like me.
“I want them to nurture themselves and really be the best they can be.”
