Adriana Lima shows how tough modelling can be in new makeup-free selfie


Victoria Secret babe Adriana Lima says modelling life isn't all it's cracked up to be.

When we think of Adriana Lima, we think of this.


And this. 


But it turns out that behind the glitz and glam, she's actually more like this.


The mother-of-two posted the makeup-free selfie snap last week along with a very long and very honest caption written in her non-native tongue, English.  

"This is not a complain, just sharing a little bit of my life. Sometimes, people question, that model life is easy, and that's wrong, we work as hard as any other individual. Today I had 10 hours of work day, shooting with a very bad cold, coughing no stop and a massive headache. That did not stopped me on doing what I love. I finished, went to airport, to comeback home to see my 2 princesses. Arriving there, my flight was over 3 hours delayed. I fly from NYC to Miami. Just waked home 2am. Happy to be here. And wanted to share the face of a hard working model, and share that I am not the only one that works this hard. Thank you. And I hope my message don't get misunderstand. Love u all"

We for one are happy Adriana's been so real about the behind-the-scenes circumstances of her perfect model pics. We are also highly appreciative of her sweaty gym shots, which give us a peek at the hard work that goes into maintaining her killer figure.

Exhibit A.


And exhibit B.


You go, Adriana!
