Modeling career is usually quite short. As soon as you turn 30 (or even earlier) no one wants you any more as there are plenty of younger and as ambitious girls ready to take your place at any time. There are a few exceptions though, like Gisele Bundchen, Miranda Kerr, Cindy Crawford and Heidi Klum. However, those are just exceptions. So, it is clear why even at the top of their careers models try to find other projects which could allow them to earn good money after they give up modeling and still live a life of a celebrity. Acting is one of the most popular choices. And for some it is a better choice that modeling was once.
