Marisa Miller Interview in Fitness

On December 4th Marisa Miller will be walking the runway for the first time in front of millions of viewers in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Miller is one of the new generation of models, with a charitable side (she’s a supporter of the Peace, Love, Cure campaign which raises money for the Young Survival Coalition and also serves as an ambassador for the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer program) and is more candid (in the not-so-catty way) and so is is featured in Fitness magazine as part of their Mind, Body & Spirit Superstar series.

In the interview she dishes on her workout, diet and confidence secrets. The issue’s on newsstands October 9th — here are some excerpts from the interview:

On being shy—yes really..!: “I used to be shy about [my body] because I was a tomboy, but I was also a size D by the time I was 16. I’d hide my body in big T-shirts and baggy pants. If I was with friends at the beach and I had to get up to throw a piece of garbage away, I would put on all my clothes just to walk to the trash can.”

On why she exercises: “I’m comfortable with the curves I have. I like having a woman’s body…It’s not like I’m exercising to be skinny—I’m the girl who needs curves. I like my butt and boobs!”

Miller’s workout secrets: “I’ve tried everything. I love surfing: it’s spiritual and physical…I also like Spinning. It’s good toning for your rear and legs. I’ll put in one of my favorite Guns N’ Roses music video DVDs and start pedaling. I find it’s so much easier to work out when I can distract myself with something visual.”

On her biggest dietary weakness: “Definitely ice cream.”

On all that attention: “I didn’t like getting attention. Even now, I don’t like it.”

On what she stays away from—most of the time:
“Processed stuff….Recently, I came back from a long trip and [my husband had] gone grocery shopping—which was nice, but it was all TV dinners and Cap’n Crunch. I said, ‘Honey, is there a fruit or vegetable anywhere in the house?’ And he’s like, ‘I got canned peaches!’ God bless him, but he doesn’t make it easy for me.”

Papa knows best…:
“Recently, I was on a cover and my dad was so excited that he bought three copies of the magazine at the grocery store. The woman at the checkout looked at him like he was a total pervert. My dad was like, ‘No! That’s my daughter on the cover!’ And she was like, ‘Uh-huh…’”
