Gisele: I'm No Actress - Yet

While supermodel Gisele Bundchen is excited about making her movie debut in the new comedy Taxi, she's refusing to call herself an actress - yet.

The Brazilian beauty, currently dating Hollywood actor LEONARDO DiCAPRIO, admits that while she's eager to branch out, she won't give herself any premature tags.

She says, "I'm a girl who takes pictures. Acting was just a fun thing."

And Bundchen admits the prejudices models face led her to initially turning down her role in Taxi, which also stars Queen Latifah and JIMMY FALLON.

She explains, "I'm a model, and people have this thing about models becoming actresses, which I think is stupid because Cameron Diaz was a model, Charlize Theron was a model, Uma Thurman was a model.

"And then I thought, 'I don't care what anyone thinks, because I really needed a challenge in my life.'

"I don't want to be one of those girls who's 30 and still doing modelling. You just repeat yourself."
