Elle Macpherson hates being looked at.
The supermodel-and-actress - nicknamed 'The Body' because of her stunning figure - doesn't feel it is healthy to objectify women because of their looks.
She said: "As strange as it might sound, I feel uncomfortable when people look at me. I really don't like it. That's one of the reasons that I've almost never enjoyed catwalks.
"My view is that putting a woman on a pedestal for everyone's enjoyment is not a positive thing at all."
Despite her shyness, 44-year-old Elle insists she is glad she chose modelling as a career.
The 'Sirens' actress added: "I only regret that I occasionally ended up saying something that I didn't want to say and arguing with someone. Then I'd ask why I failed myself and end up blaming others for it."
