Elle MacPherson is happy to call supermodel rival Heidi Klum 'The Body', after originally accusing the German beauty of stealing the name.
Australian Macpherson, who has been called The Body for 20 years, threatened legal action when Klum declared "They call me The Body - and now I have a bra named after me" in recent advertisements for Victoria's Secret's new The Body bra. However, after a conversation with The Dalai Lama, Macpherson decided to withhold legal proceedings.
Macpherson, 43, tells the New York Daily News, "Heidi is so beautiful. I think she's got an amazing body. I'll call her The Body if she wants. "Listen, legally speaking, we've trademarked the name, and we did this years and years ago. "But as far as compliments are concerned, my compliments go to Heidi."
