Heidi Klum Bad At Reading, Good At Rocking A Short Skirt

Posted: Updated:

Heidi Klum seems like the kind of woman who can "do it all," as they say: raise kids, conquer the runways, host a hit TV show and snag a hot husband all in one lifetime.

So Glamour just had to ask of its August cover girl: what can't this supermodel/mom do? Turns out, reading is not one of her specialties:

GLAMOUR: Is there anything that you're bad at?

HEIDI KLUM: There are many things! I'm bad at baking. I'm bad at letting go of things. I'm probably bad at reading.

GLAMOUR: Bad at reading?

HEIDI KLUM: Yeah! Sometimes I'm like, "What is this word?" And I start stuttering, and Leni [Klum's oldest daughter] is like, "Mommy, you don't know what that means?" And I'm like, "No, do you know what this means?" And she says, "No, but you should know. You're the mommy."

At least she has a sense of humor about it. Heidi can also take the heat from a dear friend with a sharp tongue, fellow "Project Runway" judge Michael Kors. Says the TV host:

[Tim Gunn]'s so polite--he would never say, "Why are you wearing this?" Michael [Kors] is a little bit more...well, he always jokes with me. He says that my skirts are really short. He calls it fallopian length. He teases me.

But it's all good -- Heidi can dish it out, too. When asked about how "Project Runway" has stayed consistent after all these years, Heidi says, "One thing that's stayed the same is that we eat a lot of Cheetos! We all have orange hands, though you can't really tell on Michael, because it blends in with his tan. [Laughs.]"
