AceShowbiz - Catwalk veteran Gisele Bundchen has apologised for suggesting she's wiser than the current crop of Instagram-era models in a new magazine chat.
The 37-year-old supermodel was asked for her feelings about social media in a new Vogue cover story, and it appears she wasn't happy with the remarks she made in the interview.
Talking about the way young models like Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid use Instagram to promote projects, Gisele said, "If it was me, it would only be pictures of sunsets."
"It's not my generation, I have to be honest about that. I'm older, wiser. If I had to promote myself in the way girls modelling now have to do, forget it. I wouldn't do it."

Hours after the interview was published, Gisele took to social media to apologise to any young model she may have offended.
"I'm sorry that my words in my most recent Vogue article were misunderstood," she wrote. "My intention was simply to express that I come from an older generation and am not technologically savvy.
"I admire the younger generation and their skill to manage all the added demand of social media. I certainly never feel that I am wiser than anyone, and I believe that we are all learning."
