Brooklyn Decker: ‘I’m No Triple Threat’

Posted by andre with No Comments

She’s made a career for herself in modeling and movies, and now, Brooklyn Decker is ready to tackle a new challenge: the stage.

Just don’t ask her to sing or dance.

“I am no triple threat,” Decker, 25, told PEOPLE at the 7th Annual Andy Roddick Foundation Charity Gala at the W Hotel in Austin on Friday night. “Not even a little bit. Not even a tiny smidge. At all.”

Decker joined newly retired husband Andy Roddick, 30, as well as John Legend, who performed at the event – and smiling newlyweds Matthew McConaughey and Camila, who is expecting the couple’s third child – at the event to raise money for theAndy Roddick Foundation.

“I’ve never done any theater, but I am trying to read for a few plays and hopefully I will get something by the end of this year in New York,” says Decker. “I might as well dive in head first.”

But she and Roddick did oblige Legend when he called them onstage for a little slow dancing before the crowd, who helped raise over a million dollars for the foundation (including a winning $18,000 bid from the McConaugheys on a VIP all-access package for the Austin radio programThe Bobby Bones Show). Roddick plans to build a 10,000 sq-ft, eight court tennis and learning facility for kids in Austin.

“I plan to be more hands on with this foundation,” Roddick told PEOPLE. “[My] decision to retire wasn’t an accident. It was getting to the point that it was harder and harder to leave Austin. When I was on the road, I missed home a lot and when I was home I didn’t miss the road so much, so it was a pretty easy decision for me.”

Decker says Roddick’s dedication to the ARF, which he launched in 2000, is part of the reason she fell for him.

“The fact that Andy does work for kids doesn’t hurt when you are looking at a checklist for a guy,” she says. “He loves kids, he does great things in his community.”

Posted by andre with No Comments

“The Hunger Games” fell to No. 2 and “The Lucky One” debuted at No. 3.

Universal Studios Home Entertainment scored a victory with Battleship the week ending Sept. 2, topping VideoScan’s First Alert sales chart, which tracks overall disc sales, as well as the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart.

The sci-fi actioner, which grossed a modest $65.2 million at the domestic box office, knocked The Hunger Games to the second spot after two weeks at No. 1. On the Blu-ray chart, Battleship outsold Hunger Games by a 2-to-1 margin, with 61% of its sales coming in the high-def format.

Among other newcomers on First Alert, Warner’s The Lucky One debuted at No. 3 and Sony Pictures’ Think Like a Man came in at No. 5.

In all, 10 of the First Alert top 20 were new releases, and five of those were TV shows new on disc, led by the second season of “The Walking Dead” at No. 5. “Walking Dead” fared better on the Blu-ray chart, with the second season at No. 3 and the first season reappearing at No. 20.

On Home Media Magazine’s rental chart, The Hunger Games managed to take the top spot for a third consecutive week. The Dictator held onto the No. 2 spot, while newcomers Think Like a Man and The Pirates! Band of Misfits debuted at No. 3 and No. 4, respectively. Battleship is subject to a 28-day embargo at rental kiosks.

Brooklyn Decker’s Northern Exposure
By Tom Valtin | Green – Thu, Aug 30, 2012 2:18 PM EDT

Brooklyn Decker overlooking the Marsh Fork of the Canning River in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
Supermodel and actress Brooklyn Decker, recently in the news for her co-starring role in the hit romantic comedy What to Expect When You’re Expecting, spent a week this summer on a Sierra Club Outing in Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Roughly as large as the state of South Carolina, the Refuge is America’s largest and wildest wildlife refuge.
“Getting outdoors has always been an important part of my life,” Decker says, “and going on a Sierra Club Outing to the Arctic was a particularly enlightening experience.” She learned from Outings leaders about conservation, climate change, the continual threat of oil exploration and development in the region, and the Sierra Club’s efforts to secure national monument designation for the area so it will be permanently protected for future generations to enjoy.

In the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge
Among the highlights of Decker’s week in the Arctic were floating down the Canning River through a deep glacier-carved valley, whitewater rafting in the Brooks Range (the northernmost mountain range on earth), swimming in near-freezing Arctic rivers, and hiking every day. She explored a remote, unnamed canyon with a 50-foot waterfall, saw the northern lights, and viewed wildlife including dall sheep, caribou, red fox, and golden eagles.
“This outing gave me a chance to really reconnect with nature,” Decker says. “Anyone who spends time enjoying our planet knows exactly why it’s important to protect places like the Arctic.”
