Heidi Klum Says She’ll Never Marry Again

Jason Merritt/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Though Heidi Klum appears to be smitten with her bodyguard-turned-boyfriend Martin Kirsten, the Project Runway host doesn’t plan to walk down the aisle anytime soon — or ever.

In the February issue of Marie Claire, Klum revealed that she doesn’t want to marry again, even though she and her ex-husband Seal publicly renewed their wedding vows every year.

“I don’t think so. No. No,” Klum said. “I wanted to keep the memory of our wedding alive every year, that’s why I thought it would be fun to get married over and over. But now I don’t think it’s that important. I’m not angry about anything, but I don’t think I will. Maybe if I’m with someone for 15 or 20 years, and we do it in our old age as a fun thing to do … But I don’t have the urgency anymore.”

Klum, 39, filed for divorce from singer Seal last April. They have four children together, one from Klum’s previous relationship with Italian businessman Flavio Briatore.

“People say, ‘Oh, God, how devastating to go through a divorce.' Did I wish for this to happen to my family? No. But everyone is healthy; we’re moving on with our lives,” Klum said. “If someone got [very sick], God forbid, that would be a real problem. It’s not what I wanted – it’s not what anyone wanted – but it’s not a real problem.”

The supermodel also opened up about her bedroom philosophy and getting “crazy” between the sheets.

“Some people are more experimental in bed and others are more boring,” Klum said. “If you are wild and crazy, bring it on so the other person is well aware that you have little devil horns that come out every once in a while. It’s good to make an effort to dress up sometimes, to do things outside of the norm.”

And whether things work out with Kirsten or not, Klum has no interest in being a “cougar.”

“I can understand why a woman finds a young man attractive, because the truth is that when men get older, their shape changes,” she said. “Younger men train more, and when the clothes come off, it is nice to look at a sexy, ripped body. But I am realistic. I’m turning 40 next year; I don’t think I could deal with waking up next to a 25-year-old.”

Internet Calls for 'Marie Claire' Boycott After Writer Slams "Fatties"

Photo Courtesy - Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- You can say a lot of things on the Internet. But, as one journalist just learned, unless you want to be slammed as an idiot and prompt a boycott against the magazine for which you're writing, you probably shouldn't tell the world that you find fat people disgusting.

In a piece posted on Marie Claire's website Monday, Maura Kelly took the new CBS sitcom Mike & Molly to task for "implicitly promoting obesity." The show focuses on a couple who meet at an Overeaters Anonymous group.

"Yes, I think I'd be grossed out if I had to watch two characters with rolls and rolls of fat kissing each other...because I'd be grossed out if I had to watch them doing anything," Kelly wrote in a post titled "Should 'Fatties' Get a Room? (Even on TV?)." "To be brutally honest, even in real life, I find it aesthetically displeasing to watch a very, very fat person simply walk across a room -- just like I'd find it distressing if I saw a very drunk person stumbling across a bar or a heroine addict slumping in a chair."

"Now, don't go getting the wrong impression: I have a few friends who could be called plump," she went on. "I'm not some size-ist jerk. And I also know how tough it can be for truly heavy people to psych themselves up for the long process of slimming down. (For instance, the overweight maintenance guy at my gym has talked to me a little bit about how it seems worthless for him to even try working out, because he's been heavy for as long as he can remember.)"

Kelly goes on to dispense a handful of "nutrition and fitness suggestions" before asking, "Do you think I'm being an insensitive jerk?"

"Yes, yes, yes" was the resounding answer from the Internet. More than 900 people have commented on the article on MarieClaire.com, most condemning Kelly and the magazine.

"You are indeed an INSENSITIVE JERK!," wrote LIKUMKEE24 on Tuesday.

"I can't believe this "article" is still live on this site. Color me shocked...and disappointed," wrote AmberLamps this morning.

The blog Hairpin.com headlined its post on Kelly's article, "Woman Crams Remarkable Amount of Idiocy Into Single Blog Post." On Tuesday, Sadie Stein at Jezebel.com wrote, "How could she think this was acceptable? It's that, as much as anything else, that's worrisome: that at a mainstream magazine with a wide reach and an ostensibly progressive outlook could think, in 2010, this was okay to write and implicitly endorse."

Kelly has since issued an apology in the form of an update to her post, saying she "never wanted anyone to feel bullied or ashamed after reading this" and "for whatever it's worth, I feel just as uncomfortable when I see an anorexic person as I do when I see someone who is morbidly obese." She said she herself had a "history as an anorexic."

Her apology has also been ill-received. Multiple people on blogs and Twitter have called for a boycott of Marie Claire.

"Even your apology still smacks of judgment and condescension," wrote MarieClaire.com commenter jordanpattern on Tuesday. "Please take this opportunity to educate yourself on issues of health, sizeism, and privilege."

Glee's Lea Michele Nearly Bares All in Photo Shoot

Photo Courtesy - Kevin Winter/Getty ImagesGlee's Lea Michele is striking quite a few poses in U.K.'s Marie Claire.  In the magazine, the brunette talks about how she used to be insecure about her looks.

"Growing up, I didn't feel I looked like the people around me or acted like the people around me," Michele says. "I always knew in the back of my mind that there was another world outside of that and that I would go there one day and people would accept me for who I was and who I am."

Michele adds, "So many people...would tell me there was no place for me on television.  I wasn't pretty enough...The great thing about Glee is that it gave me a chance and that you don't have to look like how everyone else looks."

In the spread, Michele is pictured wearing a nearly topless boots, undies and tutu combination.
