Miranda Kerr's unearthed interview at 14: 'I won't be a lingerie model'
Feb 11th, 2014

How times have changed for Miranda Kerr, whose teenage modelling dreams were as far away from the Victoria's Secret catwalks as she could imagine.

Footage from one of the star's first interviews at 14 on the Today show in 1997 reveals that the then-Gunnedah country-girl did not want to become a lingerie model "or anything like that".

Miranda had just won the Dolly Model competition and scored her first magazine cover at 13, sparking concerns about being "sexualised" so young.

ABC1's Family Confidential dug up the footage for their profile on the Kerr family last night, detailing the rise of Miranda and her increasing division from her Sydney-based family.

"When she won the Dolly magazine I made a point of sitting down with Miranda and saying 'You know what we're all made out of the same stuff'," Miranda's mother Therese Kerr told Family Confidential. "The day you think you're better than anyone else will be the day that you don't model out of our guidance."

Yikes! This is a family with issues. Miranda's parents Therese and John revealed that they had not seen Miranda and her son Flynn for a whole year. John added that he regretted Miranda marrying Orlando Bloom: "After what I know now I would rather she married just a nobody because you really can't get that family time by yourself."

The documentary was made without Miranda's involvement. Somehow we think Miranda won't be Skyping her folks today...
