Karolína Kurková : Angelic Action Hero

vsbra2002 160x300Victoria’s Secret Angel Karolína Kurková was setting hearts on fire long before she wore the Hearts on Fire designed fantasy bra, worth almost $10 million, in the 2002 Victoria’s Secret fashion show. She actually began her modeling career at the age of fifteen, when she began doing runway appearances in Prague.

Today, Karolína is taking her career to the next level. She appeared as Cover Girl in G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra in August, and is looking forward to doing more action movies.

She was quoted as saying,

I don’t get to shoot any guns. Cover Girl, she’s a tough girl, [but] she’s the brain, she’s behind her desk all the time – she’s more the quiet girl. I don’t get any action scenes. I was very upset about that. Hopefully next time.

Wikipedia reveals:

While Kurková was young, she was made fun of for her height.

It was only after a friend sent her photo to a modeling agency that Karolína realized many people considered her height to be beautiful. Nobody is making fun of Karolína these days, and here are plenty of photos to show you why.
