Legs forever: Heidi Klum, seen at an Ocean Drive magazine event on Thursday, talked about how she got her own back on Donald Trump in 2015 after he declared, 'She’s no longer a 10'
Heidi told the magazine she was as surprised as anyone when word about the comment reached her that day at a photo shoot.
'I mean, I know him,' she said in the new interview. 'I went to his wedding with Melania at Mar-a-Lago,' she said referring to his 2015 nuptials at his resort in Florida.
Heidi and Trump even shared a limo for a scene in the 1998 movie 54.
'He was always actually very nice to me,' Heidi said. 'So then it was very strange. I was like, "Why am I being brought into any of this?" I wouldn’t even think I would be on his mind.'
Trump attack: Heidi, 45, revealed she was surprised by Trump's comment, made before his 2016 election, but she was quick to get her own back
Heidi quickly replied to Donald's remarks.
She had someone run out and buy a Donald Trump mask, then she filmed a quick video in which she’s wearing a white T-shirt with the number 10 taped on it.
A guy in the Trump mask rips the number off...revealing she’s been demoted to a 9.99. Heidi just shrugs and smiles.
She posted the video on Twitter with the hashtag, #HeidiTrumpsTrump.
'I wanted to just, like, fire back,' she said. 'I don’t take myself that seriously, so I wanted to do a goofy response.'
Meanwhile, Heidi is the mother of four - Leni, 14; Henry, 12; Johan, 11; and Lou, eight - whom she shares with her ex-husband, the British singer Seal.
She is presently dating Tokio Hotel guitarist Tom Kaulitz, 28, who was spotted with her and her kids at Disneyland in Anaheim, California, last month.
