Heidi Klum has given up lingerie modeling.
The 40-year-old supermodel says she would no longer feel "comfortable" at a fashion show wearing only a bra and briefs.
She told TV show Access Hollywood live: "I wouldn't model with my underwear down the runway anymore. I think I would find it a little uncomfortable, maybe.
"I still do photoshoots for [magazine] covers and different things or advertising stuff."
The mother of four - who split from her husband, singer Seal, in 2012 and his now in a relationship with her former bodyguard Martin Kristen - also said she is happy to get older and embrace the lines of age rather than have surgery.
She said: "I wouldn't say that I love [my crow's feet], but that's just the way it happens, right? We get wrinkles from smiling.
"I've never had any [cosmetic procedures]. I've been too scared, to be honest with you. I'm scared that all of a sudden you're changing too much, your face starts changing, I don't know
"I would have a hard time looking in the mirror and seeing something that I'm not used to seeing. I'd be afraid."

James Franco is working on his body.
The 'Spring Breakers' actor posted a picture of himself wrapped in just a towel this morning (06.12.13) and told his fans he's been trying to get buff.
Underneath the photo he posted on Facebook: "#Almostnude - YOu ASKED FOR IT, YOU GOT it. Tryna work that body, tryin', tryin'. (sic)"
The picture quickly amassed 45,000 'Likes' and prompted many comments.
One user made fun of the star's lack of chest hair, posting: "You know when you're a total badass when you got that peachfuzz on that chest lol (sic)"
The picture had many of 35-year-old James' female fans swooning over him, with Courtney Jackson posting: "aww, this is cute. hopefully you start to hit the gym as much as you hit the books this pic would be better if you were smiling!!!! (sic)"
However, James' increasingly muscular body wasn't the big star of his last video, as Seth Rogen stole the show by posing topless as he played the part of Kim Kardashian in a recreation of Kanye West's music video for his track 'Bound 2'.
The clip, re-titled 'Bound 3', was Seth dry humping James as they rode a motorbike together in front of a desert backdrop. The re-creation proved a big hit, even with Kim and Kanye themselves.
Kim tweeted Seth: "Kanye says what's up! He loves u guys! He laughed so hard at this. (sic)"

Jennifer Lawrence hates being treated differently by people just because she's an Oscar winner.
'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' star keeps her prestigious acting trophy - which she won earlier this year for her role in 'The Silver Linings Playbook' - at her mother's house so people don't fuss over her and she surrounds herself with normal people to keep her life as close as possible to how it has always been.
She told USA Today newspaper: "People treating you differently when you don't feel any differently is really alienating. I just get allergic to that kind of thing. You can see, the way they look at you.
"I can see if that was who I surrounded myself with, that's why you change. I find people who don't change. That's where I get my reality."
Jennifer, 23, is dating British actor Nicholas Hoult, who helps keep her grounded, and is hoping to take a break after making her current movie, 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay', to catch up on things she's missed out on.
She added: "I've built my career. I need to build my human life. I need to get a house and connect to the people around me and not work for a little while."

Kristen Bell was cast in Frozen because she made her character come alive.
The 'Veronica Mars' actress voices Disney princess Anna in the big-screen comedy adventure inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's 'The Snow Queen', but producer Peter Del Vecho claims actors weren't chosen based on their popularity.
He told BANG Showbiz: ''It was important that each character came alive, so we were looking for actors with great vocals and the ability to act with their voices.
''A lot of actor's skills lay in their visuals so it's always more important to have a compelling voice rather than a big name.''
Disney have been playing with the idea of a film based on 'The Snow Queen' fairytale since Walt Disney himself was still alive, and although the writers of 'Frozen' decided on two female characters, it wasn't until someone suggested they be sisters that the story really took shape.
Co-director Jennifer Lee explained: ''That was really the moment. We keep saying, 'Was it you? No, it was you...' because we don't remember, but the whole story just felt more special to everyone. Everyone could relate to that.''
Jennifer's fellow director, Chris Buck, added: ''There was a connection. Especially with these two characters, when you split them apart, because they were siblings, suddenly all you're doing for the rest of the movie is rooting for them to get back together.''
'Frozen' is out in 3D in UK cinemas now.

Dustin Hoffman is auctioning off a selection of his prized possessions and antiques.
The 76-year-old actor has decided to sell hundreds of items and collectables from his triplex apartment in The San Remo apartment building on Central Park West in Manhattan, New York City.
The 'Meet The Fockers' star has organized over two hundred lots to go under the hammer with Nye & Co including furniture, art and movie paraphernalia from Hoffman's private screening room.
Highlights of the sale include "a George III leather-upholstered easy chair, a mid-18th century Irish mahogany pier table, a Regency Ã©tagÃ¨re, an oversized gate-leg table and a pair of Chinese pier tables with other examples of Asian furniture."
The double Academy Award-winner will also be auctioning off collections from high end designers including Cartier, Baccarat, Steuben and Lalique glass and Biedermeier, Stickley and Qing Dynasty furniture.
Although the sale won't include props or memorabilia from his own movies he is offering two autographed and dated movie projectors with reels and lenses as well as black-and-white stills from the 1961 movie 'Lola' directed by Jacques Demy.
The lots also feature a collection of porcelain dolls starting at a mere $25 up to an initial asking price of $1,500.
The auction opened online on December 3, following Dustin's decision to unload his 8,000 square foot luxury apartment - previously home to Steven Spielberg, Steve Martin and Diane Keaton - and will continue until December 17.

Heidi Montag would never let her daughter have plastic surgery.
The former 'The Hills' star once underwent ten surgical procedures in one day, but has since said she regrets them all and she hopes to stop any of her future children from ever going under the knife.
She said: "I'd definitely advise against it and hopefully I'll raise her in a way that she doesn't feel the pressure or the need."
Heidi, 27, and her husband Spencer Pratt currently have no plans to start a family yet, but she hopes they will in the future.
She added to Life and Style magazine: "Definitely in my 30s. I want two boys and a girl."
Heidi recently had her boobs reduced from an F cup to a C cup after her larger implants caused her severe back and neck pain, numbness in her arms and prevented her from doing everyday tasks.
she explained previously: "Over the past few years my implants have handicapped me, I have not been able to do a lot of things.
"Over the past nine months I have not been able to do laundry, or look after my dogs or clean my house and I have had to stop working out because my injuries are so severe I cannot even do simple things like rowing or running.
"I have been limited in my everyday life and the last few months especially have been so uncomfortable and in pain that it has really been taking a toll on my life and my mood."

John Travolta's wife used to get upset when Kirstie Alley flirted with him.
The pair starred in 'Look Who's Talking' together and Kirstie says they would have had a relationship if she hadn't been married to Parker Stevenson at the time, and their friendship wasn't welcomed by Kelly Preston when she first married John in 1991.
Speaking to US radio host Howard Stern, Kirstie said; "We both wanted to [act on it], definitely.
"It took me years to not look at John as a romantic interest. Now, I'm best friends with his wife, and that took a while. Because in the beginning she would bust me, like, 'Are you flirting with my husband?' And the answer was yes."
Kirstie added John is "very gamey" and "very handsome" but denied rumors he is secretly gay.
She added: "I've known John for 20 years. I know him so well. I also know when I moved to Hollywood, I was told that a couple of people were gay, one of whom I was dating, and I knew that they weren't gay ... It became a way to dismiss actors.
"I have three friends that I've been told are gay. And they're not gay. I know who's gay. I know who's bi. I know. You can't not know something for that long about someone."
Kirstie also pointed out how several lawsuits relating to allegations of sexual assault against John have been dropped, adding: "When he says, 'Ok, you're not getting any money. Go ahead and sue.' they drop the suit."

Kristin Davis is hoping for 'Sex and the City 3'.
The 48-year-old actress - who played Charlotte Yorke in the hit films and long-running HBO series - has hinted that a third movie could be on the cards as there have been multiple discussions, but nothing has been agreed yet.
She said: "I'm going to have a little talk with [co-star] Cynthia [Nixon] the next time I see her!
"I don't think [a third film] is a pipe dream, there is discussion. People talk about it amongst the people who are the players, but I don't know if it will come together. It would be very exciting if it did."
At present, the brunette beauty is focusing on being a mother to her two-year-old adoptive daughter Gemma and is in no hurry to throw herself back into a movie project.
She explained: "The greatest luxury is being home in the morning when my daughter wakes up and not have to go anywhere. I have a beautiful home, a beautiful yard and a lot of food. If Gemma and I could just be there, I could probably go a long time without leaving."
However, Kristin admits her parental responsibilities are proving disastrous for her love life because she doesn't have time to date.
The actress told Haute Living magazine: "I certainly intellectually feel like I'd like to have another romantic relationship but I don't know how to make the day-to-day of it happen. I don't have time!"

Amanda Bynes has been released from rehab.
The 27-year-old actress was placed under an involuntary psychiatric hold in July, but she has now completed her inpatient treatment and is recovering at her parents' home in Los Angeles.
Amanda's mother's lawyer, Tamar Arminak, released a statement saying: "Amanda has completed her inpatient rehabilitation and she's feeling better every day."
The 'Easy A' star spent two months at UCLA Medical Center in California, where she was allegedly diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, after she struck up a small fire in the driveway of a stranger's home in Thousand Oaks, Los Angeles.
Amanda was then moved to the Canyon treatment facility in Malibu at the end of September, where she continued to make improvements, and she is now looking into joining a college.
Tamar added: "She's now looking at various colleges with the intention of majoring in fashion design. She's mentioned before she's interested in creating a clothing line."
Amanda's mother Lynn was granted a temporary conservatorship over her daughter in August, but she will continue to have control over her well-being and finances indefinitely.
The statement continued: "Despite the fact Amanda is no longer in a facility, her outpatient treatment is continuing. She's very happy to re-establish the loving relationship with her family that she once shared."

Nigella Lawson has claimed Charles Saatchi grabbed her by the throat after she expressed her desire to have grandchildren.
The celebrity chef, who admitted using cocaine and marijuana in the past whilst giving evidence at Isleworth Crown Court in London on Wednesday (12.04.13) in the ongoing fraud trial against her former assistants Elisabetta and Francesca Grillo - who are accused of spending Â£685,000 on a credit card belonging to the former couple, also broke her silence for the first time on the shocking photographs that emerged in June showing her ex-husband with his hand around her neck as they argued outside Scott's restaurant in the city.
In an explosive testimony, the 'How To Be A Domestic Goddess' author claimed comments she made about a person walking by with a baby sparked the incident.
She said: "He [Charles Saatchi] told everyone that he was taking cocaine out of my nose.
"But what actually happened was that somebody walked by with a very cute baby in a stroller and I said, 'I am so looking forward to having grandchildren', and he grabbed me by the throat and said, 'I am the only person you should be concerned with. I am the only person who should be giving you pleasure.' That is what happened."
Nigella, who has a 17-year-old son, Bruno, and daughter, Cosima, 19, from her first marriage to John Diamond, who died of throat cancer in 2001, also claimed her former spouse often became "irritated" by her independence as a successful TV star and accused the wealthy art dealer of having quite a temper, adding: "Yes, he did have a temper and I don't think that anyone can be in any doubt he had a temper."
Charles accepted a police caution in relation to the incident over the summer and previously insisted they were having a "playful tiff" at the time.
He told the court on Friday (29.11.13) that he was only holding his ex-wife by the throat "to make her focus."

Liam Hemsworth has allegedly begged Miley Cyrus to get back together with him.
The 'Hunger Games' star really misses his ex-fiancee, whom he split from in September after three years together, and wants to win her back.
A source told Us Weekly magazine that the former couple secretly met up last month and "talked like they did when they were together."
The insider claimed that the Australian heartthrob, 23, convinced the 'Wrecking Ball' hitmaker, 21, that they needed to talk face to face, adding: "He pushed to get back in touch. He still has feelings. The attraction hasn't gone away."
The duo have reportedly been exchanging "flirty texts" but Miley isn't convinced they should reunite.
The source said: "She's confused about how she feels."
Liam, who enjoyed a brief fling with Mexican actress Eiza Gonzalez the day after he announced his split from Miley, recently admitted he is "extremely happy" for her following the success of her latest album 'Bangerz' and insisted he is still single.
Miley has been linked to several people recently including her music producer Mike WiLL Made It and Rolling Stone photographer Theo Wenner but has been using her new single status to get to know herself better.
She previously said: "I am genuinely happy, finally, with myself. I think it takes you separating yourself from someone else to really be happy with who you are.
"I've never just been able to be alone, and I'm obsessed with being alone and hearing my thoughts. I'm trying to take this alone time - the five minutes I do have a day - to learn as much as I can."
She later added: "This is the best time of my life. I'm not going to look back on it and be like, 'I wish I hadn't been dwelling over a break up,' you know?"

Mark Wahlberg has revealed he has fallen out with his mother.
The 'Lone Survivor' star, who has five brothers, two sisters and three half-siblings, admitted his mom, Alma Wahlberg, who has often accompanied him to red carpet events and premieres in the past, is "not speaking" to him at the moment but did not give a reason for their tiff.
When asked if Alma picked out his dapper grey suit, the 42-year-old actor glumly told 'Live with Kelly & Michael' on Wednesday (12.04.13): "My mom's not speaking to me right now."
Kelly advised the star that his mother was probably just busy focusing on his other siblings since he is successful.
The mother-of-three said: "It's because you're doing well. The mother always likes the one whose doing least well the most."
He appeared to appreciate the insight and replied: "Oh that's it, I gotta do that."
Mark, who has four children, Ella, nine, Michael, seven, Brendan, four and two-year-old Grace with his wife Rhea Durham, previously credited his mother for helping him to stay grounded despite his Hollywood career.
He said: "Obviously, I am still the same at the core. Just because you have money doesn't really change you.
"Listen, I've always thought that at any time it could all go away and I could end up right where I came from. I have a lot of people keeping me grounded: my wife, my mother and my friends."

Keri Russell awoke to find burglars in her home this morning (12.04.13).
The 37-year-old 'The Americans' actress, who has a six-year-old son, River, and a daughter, Willa, who will turn two on December 27, with her husband Shane Deary, discovered the front door and the living room window of her Brownstone townhouse in Brooklyn, New York City, were wide open at 3am after she heard noises upstairs and got up to investigate.
Two thieves got away with a laptop computer, a necklace, a pair of earrings and a Filson handbag, but 50-year-old Ronald Swindell and his nephew Steffon, 19, were later arrested several blocks away, according to the New York Daily News.
The two men were taken into custody after they were spotted breaking into another house less than three hours later.
Both men have been charged with burglary and criminal possession of stolen property.
A source said the elder Swindell has been arrested multiple times for burglary and was just released from prison two weeks ago.
The former 'Felicity' star proudly showed off her property in Elle DÃ©cor magazine in 2011 and gushed about it being her dream home.

Jay Z and Beyonce are going vegan until Christmas Day (12.25.13).
The rapper, who turns 44 today, and his pop star wife have set themselves a 22-day challenge after being inspired by a close friend to give up meat and dairy products.
Jay Z wrote on his Life and Times blog: "Psychologists have said it takes 21 days to make or break a habit. On the 22nd day, you've found the way.
"On December 3, one day before my 44th birthday I will embark on a 22 Days challenge to go completely vegan, or as I prefer to call it, plant-based!
"This all began a few months back when a good friend and vegan challenged me to embrace a 'plant-based breakfast' everyday. It was surprisingly easier on me than I thought."
The 'Holy Grail' hitmaker said there was something "spiritual" about his 44th birthday coupled with the fact that the challenge ends on Christmas Day.
Jay Z added: "It just feels right! So you can call it a spiritual and physical cleanse. I will post my progress. Any professional vegans out there that have any great food spots please help out! Please! I don't know what happens after Christmas. A semi-vegan, a full plant-based diet? Or just a spiritual and physical challenge? We'll see."
As vegans the couple should also avoid animal-derived garments, including fur, wool and leather, although Beyonce, 32, was spotted wearing wool and leather while visiting a vegan eatery Real Food Daily in West Hollywood this week.

Universal Pictures has shut down production on "Fast & Furious 7" indefinitely following the death of its star, Paul Walker.
The studio announced Wednesday that the film will shut down "for a period of time so we can assess all options available to move forward with the franchise."
The seventh installment of the street car racing series had begun shooting in September. While much of "Fast & Furious 7" has been filmed, it's far from complete.
When Walker died in a fiery car crash Saturday north of Los Angeles, the film was on break for the Thanksgiving holiday. Shooting had been planned to resume Monday in Atlanta, but production was put on hold following Walker's death.
Universal had been trying to fast-track "Fast & Furious 7" for a July 11 release, a date that's likely to be postponed. Universal hasn't yet announced any release date change.
"Right now, all of us at Universal are dedicated to providing support to Paul's immediate family and our extended 'Fast & Furious' family of cast, crew and filmmakers," the studio said in a statement.
Walker was killed by both the impact and subsequent fire when the high-powered Porsche driven by his friend crashed, according to autopsy results released Wednesday.
At the wheel was Roger Rodas, Walker's friend, financial adviser and co-owner of a professional racing team. The two died when Rodas' 2005 Porsche Carrera GT smashed into a light pole and tree, then exploded in flames.
Sheriff's investigators were still trying to determine what caused Rodas to careen out of control. They have said speed was a factor in the one-car crash about 30 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles.
Rodas was killed by the impact alone, the doctor who performed the autopsy for the Los Angeles County coroner's office concluded. Results of toxicology testing for drugs or alcohol will take another six to eight weeks.
The limited-edition Porsche was previously owned by IndyCar driver Graham Rahal, who has said it was difficult to drive. It is not just fast — it can hit 100 mph in less than 7 seconds — but also unforgiving in its handling.
Walker starred in all but one installment of the "Fast & Furious" franchise, which has been particularly lucrative for Universal. "Fast & Furious 6," released in May, was the highest grossing film in the series, earning more than $788 million worldwide.
Universal announced Tuesday that it will donate a portion of the proceeds from the upcoming DVD, Blu-ray and digital release of "Fast & Furious 6" to Walker's charity Reach Out Worldwide.
Walker, 40, founded Reach Out Worldwide in 2010 to give first-response aid to victims of natural disasters. Walker was hosting a fundraiser for the non-profit on Saturday afternoon before the crash.
Pritchard reported from Los Angeles. Associated Press Auto Racing Writer Jenna Fryer also contributed to this report.
