Los Angeles, March 14 (IANS) Supermodel Irina Shayk says she felt “insecure and ugly” when she was in a relationship with Real Madrid star footballer Cristiano Ronaldo.
The 29-year-old model recently split from the soccer star after five years of dating and admitted she previously thought she had found the “ideal man” but things didn’t turn out the way she’d hoped, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“I thought I had once found the ideal man but it didn’t turn out that way. I think a woman feels ugly when she’s got the wrong man at her side. I’ve felt ugly and insecure,” Shayk told Spain’s Hola magazine.
The Sports Illustrated beauty is now on the lookout for a “gentleman” who treats her well.
“My ideal man is faithful, honest and a gentleman who knows how to treat women. I don’t believe in men who make us feel unhappy, because they’re boys not men,” she added.
Cristiano and Shayk split over the Christmas period last year and he is rumoured to have already moved on with Spanish TV presenter Lucia Villalon.
The Portuguese star recently released a statement confirming their split, saying: “I wish Irina the greatest happiness.”
