David Gandy is annoyed that recent comments he made about his looks were “misconstrued” – he was actually saying he is the “opposite” of perfect.

The model dished on the things he didn’t like about himself in the latest issue of Men’s Health magazine, stating: “I hate my hair, my lips, my nose. I’ve never really fitted in anywhere. I can’t say I have many friends from the fashion industry.”

Many places picked up on the fact that he was chasing “perfection” and David isn’t pleased with how his remarks were interpreted.

“A couple of things I said were misconstrued when used by some of the newspapers in the UK which was disappointing. I explained in the interview that I am a perfectionist when it comes to my work, interior design, car restorations etc. and said that ex-girlfriends had sometimes found that difficult. I went on to point out the various other imperfections I think I have!” he explained on his Vogue UK blog.

“I’m not sure why, but that was then reported that I think that I am perfect — I was actually saying the opposite.”

David went on to muse about refraining from airing his innermost thoughts in interviews from now on.

“Still I learned from that, and maybe this is why some people in the public eye hold back which, in the long run, is a shame for the reader. However, as Monty Python states ‘always look on the bright side of life,’” he added.
