Irina Shayk: I don't want to look ideal

Shayk is opened up about her very public split for the first time in a new interview with Harper's Bazaar.

Speaking to the digital edition of Harper's Bazaar US, she said: "I've had agents who said, 'Oh, you have to cut your hair, lose the wig.' And I was like, 'Not happening.' You have to know what you want and you have to stick with your decisions". "There's a curtain there, you want to open the curtain. It's curiosity, I guess", she added. Though she and actor and filmmaker Bradley Cooper split in June after more than four years together, the Russian model revealed she has not given up on love. I really believe if you go for dinner with somebody, you don't have to send them a text or keep them updated on Instagram message.

Shayk said she embodies her ideals by wearing what she wants and ignoring other societal expectations of mothers.

She added: "People think I have a team of like 20 people, but it's going to make me more nervous to have somebody else to help me". Sometimes I don't look like a model.

Spurs muscle in on Arsenal's Saliba deal
However, the Gunners will send Saliba back to St Etienne on loan during the first season. Unai Emery's Gunners, though, have always been said to be particularly keen.


"You have to be really truly yourself for your kids, otherwise you're living in a lie", she told the magazine. She explained that she is not a "stiff model" who poses for the camera looking flawless.

In case you aren't up to do date on celebrity relationships right now, Irina Shayk and Bradley Cooper have split ways.

As with her romantic relationship, Shayk is tight-lipped about her 2-year-old daughter, Lea de Seine, whom she shares with Cooper. I don't believe in that. Among the problems she faces day to day are bad skin days and bad hair days. I don't believe in that. "Motherhood is just an addition to your life", the star remarked. Tell me one reason! "I really don't", she says. Talking about people's obsession about her dating life, the model said that it is normal human behavior to be curious about such things. Tell me one reason!' I don't believe in that. A woman can raise the kids, women can do the job, and when she's back, she can cook and clean and do the heavy work too!
