On the surface, it would be appear Erin Heatherton has it made.
She’s walked the runway for Prada, Marc Jacobs, Oscar de la Renta and more. She’s graced the cover of countless magazines. She dated Leonardo DiCaprio. Of course, it goes without saying: She’s absolutely stunning.
But the gorgeous 25-year-old recently opened up to Ocean Drive magazine about what it’s really like dating someone in the spotlight—and it’s not nearly as fabulous as you’d think.

“It’s not a comfortable feeling,” Erin said. “With modeling it’s fantasy, so it doesn’t touch you, but when it’s your personal life, then it can burn. But that’s part of the job. It helped me find more inner strength.”
Having her love life broadcast for all to see was a stretch for the 5-foot-11 beauty—who swears she really didn’t have boyfriends in high school.
Still, if she’s trying to meet someone new, she knows exactly who to turn to—the Jewish women who are constantly trying to set their sons up with the Victoria’s Secret model, who went to a Jewish day school and even had a Bat Mitzvah!
“The moms, they’re doing what they do. It doesn’t matter what country they live in, what city—grandmothers, too,” she confessed.
“But I’m probably going to do that, too, one day.”
