She has said about modeling, "Modeling is a tough job, your co-workers are your rivals, it really puts a damper on your perspective of other girls."

Adriana Lima was criticized for revealing her diet regimen before her Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. As she told E!, "It's not that I do crazy diets throughout the year.

Adriana Lima is a devout Catholic and attends mass every Sunday. In 2006, she revealed in a GQ interview that she was a virgin. "Sex is for after marriage. They have to respect that this is my choice. If there's no respect, that means they don't want me."

Adriana Lima has said, "I wouldn't change anything about my life. I am afraid that if I did, things might have turned out differently and I am currently living my dream. If that means I had to deal with demons, then I will do it. I got through everything and I am very proud of myself."
