Last month, Hulu released the long-awaited documentary, Victoria's Secret: Angels and Demons, which outlined the rise and fall of Americas biggest lingerie brand. It didn't exactly show the brand in the best light, and now former Victoria's Secret Angel Heidi Klum has spoken about her experience, claiming that she had "the best time ever" working with them. Here's the tea.
The three-part series focused heavily on revealing the truth behind the brand, mainly about the accusations of harassment by the company executives. The series also shed light on the connection between VS's former CEO Les Wexner and Jeffrey Epstein. But probably the most anticipated part of it was how Victoria's Secret executives allegedly pressured their models to maintain unhealthy body measurements. Many former models for the lingerie brand appeared in the documentary to share their stories, including Frederique van der Wal and Lyndsey Scott. But when Heidi Klum was asked to participate, she respectfully declined. Now, she recently explained to Variety: "They asked me if I wanted to be part of it," she confessed. "And I was like, 'If you're looking for a negative story, you're barking up the wrong tree because I had the most wonderful time there.'"
She continued telling the publication that she attempted to watch it, but after the first episode, she turned it off because "hardly anyone I knew was on that show." When the interview at Variety asked the former model if the accusations were true, she said, "Hearing all these stories pop up, to me, is mind-blowing when they accuse different people of different things, and I'm like, 'My gosh, did this really happen?' I don't know. So I was always waiting to get more insight, but… it never came. So I never continued watching it."
Despite not being in the documentary, Klum's name does get brought up, mainly about how she had requested to have the "biggest wings" out of all the models walking down the iconic show. "The wings were an obvious and dumb idea, and that they worked is what astonished me, and worked for so long," director Matt Tyrnauer revealed to Insider. "But internally, they worked too because you see the models competing to wear the biggest wings, and that attracted them to the job."
