Candice Swanepoel says she doesn't 'feel sexy' when she's picking up her dog's 'poopies'

Los Angeles - Candice Swanepoel claims she doesn't "feel that sexy" at home.

The Victoria's Secret model, who recently topped Maxim magazine's Hot 100 list, insists she rarely thinks about her appearance when she's not working.

The 25-year-old beauty told E! News: "I don't see myself as that girl because it's my job to be that sexy woman, it's not my whole life.''

She added: "I'm not that at home, when I'm picking up my dogs' poopies I don't feel that sexy."

The South African model also admits she was shocked to be named the sexiest woman in the world by the magazine ahead of other contenders for the title, including Scarlett Johansson, Katy Perry, Irina Shayk and Jennifer Lawrence.

She said: "It feels amazing. I don't know how that happened, maybe my mom had something to do with that, voting non-stop. I expected an actress..."

Candice previously credited sunscreen and squats for helping her to maintain her good looks.

She added: "When I'm on holiday, I try to take a break from make-up. If we have a night out, or go and see a band or something, I'll do some blush and mascara - but I try to keep it really minimal."
