The world-famous model - who is married to NFL star Tom Brady - celebrated her 40th birthday in July last year, and Gisele admits she's now feeling better than she did a decade ago.

Appearing on a Dior Digital Talk episode on YouTube, Gisele shared: "I feel better at 40 than I felt at 30, I can tell you that much."

The blonde beauty - who has been married to Tom since 2009 - now feels more confident and sure of herself than ever before.

She explained: "I think the 40s are going to be awesome. The 20s were a little challenging, I’m not going to lie.

"The 30s, I was getting a grip on stuff. Now the 40s, I’m like, ‘Let’s go!'"

Gisele also revealed she's focused her attention on taking particular care of her eyes over recent years.

She said: "As I’m maturing, I will say [it] is where I definitely notice that is where I want to have the most care."

The model subsequently explained that she thinks the eyes are "very powerful".

She reflected: "I go the extra mile, the extra point of actually looking someone in the eyes. Just trying to send a positive vibration, a positive energy to the eyes because the eyes are very powerful."

Meanwhile, Gisele previously admitted to being obsessed with Tom after they went on their first date together.

She recalled: "There is a way that men act around women whose bodies they know intimately from their work. It isn't a normal behavioural pattern: it is clouded with imaginations.

"Tom didn't feel like that at all. Instantly I was like, my god, this is a rarity. From that moment on I couldn't stop thinking about him. We didn't spend a day without talking to each other after that. Before we even kissed we had talked so much."
