She works hard for her money!
Being #4 on the Forbes List of the World's Top Earning Models is a huge accomplishment, but Victoria's Secret model Adriana Lima wants you to know that she makes a lot of sacrifices for that money.
Earning a whopping $8 million in 2010, Brazilian stunner Adriana is often touted at the world's sexiest model, and RadarOnline.com caught up with her at the posh outdoor shopping area The Grove in Los Angeles where she said she's "proud" of being on the list.
"I'm very proud of it because I work very hard," she said at the Victoria's Secret What is Sexy? 2011 National Bombshell Summer Tour launch party. "There are a lot of sacrifices involved."
The job is not all glitz and glamour for the gorgeous 29-year-old. "We work over 12 hours sometimes. We travel a lot and yes we do go to beautiful places but we don't get time to look around because we're working all day."
"It's not easy!
"Every day you wake up, taking care of your family, working, it's not easy. Do you know what? I'm proud!"
