Candice Swanepoel says studying ballet helped her become a model.
The star told how the demanding dance discipline helped to strengthen her posture and joints so she had perfect poise for the catwalk.
She told Marie Claire magazine: ''I studied ballet when I was growing up. It has helped a lot with modelling because I think about all parts of my body, from my fingers to my toes.''
If she hadn't been spotted to become a model aged 15 she would have continued with her ballet studies, or ''maybe I would have become a veterinarian.''
The South African beauty also said her job with as a Victoria's Secret Angel involves much more than simply modelling underwear.
She added: ''It comes with a different kind of responsibility. It's not just about posing for shoots. People know your name and your personality.''
Candice, 25, also revealed an unusual hidden talent.
She added: ''I am very good at pretending I am not nervous!''
The model - who is dating Hermann Nicoli - has also recently said she loves to have dance music playing when she is on photoshoots as it helps her keep her energy levels up.
Speaking of a recent shoot for the brand Bottletop in Brazil, she said: ''We had a DJ playing electronic dance music all afternoon to keep our energy and spirits high and I think you can tell we had a great time by the quality of the images.''
