Check out our exclusive interview with the supermodel below:
You’re the official ambassador for the FIFA World Cup Kia campaign. How does that feel?
It’s so exciting to be partnering with Kia – together with Kia – to be ambassador of the World Cup. Kia has been partnering with FIFA since 2007. This is my second time doing the commercials with them. My first time was during 2012 for [the] “Driving the Dream” commercial, which aired during the Super Bowl. This year, we shot three different commercials in Los Angeles in three different places, and featuring the cars Kia Optima and Kia Sorento. The commercials [are] going to be aired during this year’s FIFA World Cup tournament.
Do you have a favorite shooting location?
Well, I like all three. One is in a man cave [garage], one is in the football field, and the other one is in a bar. They are so different! And I think they’re going to be funny commercials. They’re really cool! I have to say maybe, like, the one that happens on the American football field. It’s going be my favorite commercial I think!
Okay and we hear that you’re very passionate about soccer. Did you play growing up?
Yes, I did play in school, and also my family has its local soccer team, which is Victoria. We cannot miss a match! You know? And [in] Brazil, we’re so passionate about soccer! Every Sunday, all afternoon it’s soccer games on TV, so everybody turns their heads to watch TV and soccer games. Now, with the World Cup going to Brazil, I’m very excited. I can’t wait to go watch my first match – soccer match – in my hometown. It’s exciting! I can’t wait. I just can’t wait.
I went here in Miami – for the first time ever – I went to watch a Brazil game here. It was a few months ago, and it wasn’t in my hometown. For the first time I went to the fields – in the fields where the soccer players play on the field. And I heard the fans singing the national anthem of Brazil from there, and it was the most amazing feeling ever. So I cannot imagine having that experience in my home country!
