“Project Runway” star and supermodel Heidi Klum is clueless as to why she got embroiled in the Donald Trump drama, but she’s not going to take it quietly, telling the GOP presidential candidate: “Every woman is a 10.”
“Personally, I have no idea what I have to do with the election,” Klum told “Access Hollywood” guest correspondent Scott Evans backstage at “America’s Got Talent” on Tuesday. “Why do I come into play with this election? Like that doesn’t make sense to me to be honest with you.”
“Heidi Klum. Sadly, she’s no longer a 10,” the eccentric media mogul candidate declared while speaking to New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd.
The “America’s Got Talent” host quickly made light of Trump’s comment in a short video on Twitter, by posing in a T-shirt with a “10” pinned to it, only for a man in a Trump mask to rip it off mid-shoot — revealing “9.99.”

“I was just making light of the situation because it was kind of funny I thought, and I just thought, make it even more funny,” she told “Access Hollywood.”
However, she is taking it more seriously now. “But really, the whole entire situation about women is not really funny, you know to put a number on a woman, especially women,” the mother of four said. “We juggle so many things, and I feel that … women who support their families, who have children, who make their lunches, drive them all over the place, work at the same time.
“We do so many things, so in my book, every woman is a 10.”
