Emerson's quote was about the real meaning of success, and it read, "What is success? To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends."

The quote further explained that success is always finding the "best in others" and deliberately "leaving the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or esteemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded!" Brady simply captioned the post with three red heart emojis.

As the interview went on, Bündchen also addressed the multitude of rumors that have recently come up about her love life since the divorce. She officially clarified that she and billionaire Jeffrey Soffer have no romantic relationship, especially because "He's Tom's friend, not my friend."

To emphasize her point about not ever being with Soffer, Bündchen added, "I wouldn't be with this guy. I mean, puh-leeze." The 42-year-old was also upset that people would assume she'd be swayed by Soffer's money, especially with her own $400 million net worth. Soffer is worth about $2.2 billion.

Bündchen shared with Vanity Fair that she thinks the romance stories with Soffer were planted but didn't point any fingers. She said, "Who benefits from this? Why would somebody plant something like this? There's only one reason. They want to make me look like something I'm not."
