Miranda Kerr had Gymnast ambitions

The successful Australian model is known for her supple body and love of stretching exercise yoga, which stems from her first love of gymnastics. As she grew taller as a child her ambitions of becoming a professional sportswoman became less and less likely, while a career as a model became the more obvious option.

“When I was young I wanted to be a gymnast,” Miranda told UK Vogue. “I used to compete at it, but then I grew too tall.”

Miranda didn’t have her heart set on working in fashion when she was young. She ended up being a professional model almost by mistake.

“I never planned it or took it too seriously,” she said. “A friend entered me into a competition when I was 14 but I kept going with school in spite of getting modeling work.”

The multi-talented star, who also has her own range of beauty products, has hinted a singing career may be her next move. She might release an album of her own one day.

“I love singing just for my own benefit,” the star revealed. “I have a friend who writes lyrics and we hang out together and have fun. I grew up sitting beside my grandmother playing the piano and singing. But will there be an album one day? Who knows? It’s not on my schedule right now.”
