Orlando Bloom's ex wanted different career

Miranda Kerr has admitted that she never planned on becoming a model.

The Aussie stunner only started out in the profession after a friend entered her into a modelling competition for a joke when she was 13.

‘She thought it would be funny,’ says Miranda, 30.

‘But then I won. I didn’t even read fashion magazines – I was a tomboy.’

Miranda – who has three-year-old son Flynn with her ex Orlando Bloom – had actually been hoping for a career in health and wellness but realised that modelling would be beneficial to her.

‘My career got off to a slow start because I wanted to finish school and this nutrition course I was doing,’ the mum-of-one tells the Mirror.

‘But modelling became a good way for me to get to work with good people, express a creative side of myself, and to travel.

‘Now it’s a way to make money for my son’s education and a good way to get my face out there so I can do things like my skincare line.’
