Posing for another flawless spread, Irina Shayk scored a feature in Vman magazine's 10th Anniversary Issue.

After working the camera for Sebastian Faena, the 27-year-old stunner dished about her relationship with boyfriend Cristiano Ronaldo and shared details about being bullied as a child.

Check out a few highlights from Miss Shayk's interview below. For more, be sure to visit Vman!

On her love for Cristiano:
"If you love someone and you are in a great relationship, you don't feel the pressure. People can try and disturb that, but if you are happy you build a wall around you. What's most important stays behind that wall."

On her struggles with bullies:
"Kids made fun of me because I was so skinny and I always had these free haircuts from my sister. I remember when I was 14, I wanted high heels boots and they cost $25, but I couldn't afford them. So I worked in a hospital for 20 days painting the walls to make the $25. I remember the other kids making fun of me for that. 'Who is this weird, skinny girl in those high heel boots?' But I didn't care."

On her New York City days:
"It's the best city in the world. You can wake up in the morning, walk out of your apartment and feel like everyone is so alive. I just spent three years renovating my apartment, so now I'm happy to spend time at home too. I have five TVs and a theater. I love watching movies. It's a good place to relax."
