Sports Illustrated Swimsuit’s website SwimDaily.com released this week a list of the 50 Greatest Swimsuit Models and of course Brooklyn was part of the list, in fact she made it all the way to the Top 10 in #7 ranking higher than some iconic SI models such as Daniela Pestova, Paulina Porizkova and Christie Brinkley. Even though Brooklyn is our #1 girl (and will always be) we’re happy to see the SwimDaily staff ranked Brooklyn so well. Here’s what they had to say about Brooklyn and what she had to say about her experience with the magazine
7. Brooklyn DeckerBrooklyn Decker :: Walter Iooss Jr./SI
Decker, an Ohio native, was first featured in the 2006 Swimsuit issue. She then appeared in six consecutive issues, including the 2010 cover, and hosted a behind-the-scenes television special in 2007. She will be starring in the CBS sitcom Friends With Better Lives this fall.
Random Fact: Decker is married American retired tennis pro Andy Roddick. They first met after Roddick saw Decker in the Swimsuit issue, and had his agent contact her for a date.
On her favorite swimsuit memory: “Shooting in the Maldives with Walter Iooss. It was my fifth or sixth year, so at that point the SI crew had become a traveling family to me. Walter and I clicked immediately. We just ran around the beach all day long and told stories at night. That turned out to be the year that I was on the cover. It was the most beautiful ocean I have ever seen in my life. It was a pretty special shoot.”
On her career since first swimsuit appearance: “SI made my career. Truly. They are one of the smartest companies out there because they invest in their girls. They gave me a show with Dr. Z (“She Says, Z Says”) when I was 19, making weekly football picks. From there I got my first TV pilot…then it just snowballed. SI Swimsuit scouts unknown talent, turns them into brands, and shortly after everyone else catches on!”
On her favorite all-time swimsuit model: “It has to be Marisa Miller. That probably has a lot to do with the fact that when I came on as a rookie, she was one of the nicest people I had met and continues to be supportive and wonderful to this day. (Not to mention her perfect abs/booty/body- don’t even get me started on that!)”
If you’re missing Brooklyn’s work for SI as much as we do, go ahead and check all pictures from her six-year run with the magazine in our gallery

The GQ&A: Brooklyn Decker Says “No” to Facial Hair, Meggings, and Sweet-Smelling Air Fresheners
BY STELIOS PHILI
Back in February, I interviewed actress and supermodel Brooklyn Decker for GQ’s April issue about…home scents. Yes: Home scents. When I told her we needed to talk about “smell,” she got kind of nervous—like I was going to say she smelled bad or something. The first mention of home scents, however, disarmed her immediately, and she revealed her disdain for lemon bar-scented man-homes as well as foot odor. And then, perhaps as a preemptive measure, she added, “I mean, I probably smell half the time, which is too much information.” She smelt like model, which is to say, very good.
At the time, Decker was promoting Gillette’s Fusion Pro Glide razor and had just announced the results of the brand’s survey on facial hair: 85 percent of women like kissing clean-shaven guys instead of bearded ones. She agreed. (MEN, FYI: BEARDS GIVE BROOKLYN DECKER PIMPLES.) But there is one exception: “The Brawny man is a prime example of a guy with a cool-looking mustache.” After hearing her candid thoughts on facial fair, I moved on to the topic of meggings, or man leggings. Having never heard of them, she was shocked and extremely curious at the mere suggestion (“What do they do about their junk?”). Below, a delightfully random conversation with Brooklyn Decker.
GQ: You were a part of Gillette’s “Kiss & Tell” campaign, which found that women prefer to kiss a clean-shaven dude over a bearded man. Where do you stand?
Brooklyn Decker: A little scruff looks nice, but it feels so uncomfortable. Think about how a guy wants a girl to have smooth legs: It’s expected. Shouldn’t a guy be expected to do the same on his face? I think that’s only fair. I thought women would be like, “Yeah, it’s uncomfortable, but I like the way it looks,” similar to a pair of shoes. The results go to show you that women are passionate about a smooth face—they don’t care what it looks like, they just want it to be soft against their skin. Also, women can get beard burn, have you seen that?
GQ: Woah, really?
Brooklyn Decker: Yeah, girls can start breaking out on their face…not fun.
GQ: Even you?
Brooklyn Decker: Yes. I hate the scratching and the red mustache I get afterwards. And you can get pimples on your chin because of the oils from the facial hair and the stabbing. It’s not a cute look.
GQ: But aren’t there certain beard legends that get a free pass?
Brooklyn Decker: I mean, the Brawny man is a prime example of a guy with a cool-looking mustache. Does he still have it?
Brooklyn Decker: He shaved it off? That’s unfortunate. A cartoon on paper towel-packaging is the only one I can think of, so I guess that shows you what I think about beards. Lumberjacks in general can get away with a beard. Or if you live in Alaska.
GQ: Next topic: Scent. What’s your criteria for how a guy’s place should smell?
Brooklyn Decker: Guys, your home should never smell like artificial food: candy canes, gum drops, lemon bars. I mean, I will consume lemon bars in mass quantities, but I don’t want my house to smell like one. Something more organic—say, a clean, woodsy scent—is always nice.
GQ: It’s like, “Are you making me lemon bars or not? What’s with this deception?”
Brooklyn Decker: Exactly! He should be making real freakin’ lemon bars. And then his place can smell like a lemon bar. I should have brought some. [Looks around the press conference room table] There’s like a whole platter of room temperature croissants if you would like one.
GQ: Nah, I’m good.
Brooklyn Decker: Do you smell the artichoke by the way? It sort of smells like vomit. Too much information. [To her publicists] Do you guys smell that? No? It’s good now. I’ve gotten used to it. As you do.
GQ: Is there anything else beyond an artificial scent that bothers you?
Brooklyn Decker: A lot of guys do smell like feet. I mean, I probably smell half the time, which is too much information, but you never want to leave sweaty gym clothes in the hamper for a week or two—it just gets worse over time.
GQ: What’s the scent of choice in your own home?
Brooklyn Decker: You know what I love the smell of? Christmas trees and pine. I always have a pine candle even if it’s not Christmas. Or fir. Frasier fir is a nice smell in the house. I live in Texas and my yard has deer and fox and raccoons, so it kind of smells woodsy anyways.
GQ: What’s the most PC way to have a scent intervention with a smelly friend?
Brooklyn Decker: Tell somebody that they stink. Because people have told me that in the past and I have to just swallow the truth. What do you think the PC way is?
GQ: I’d use “reek.”
Brooklyn Decker: Yeah, “reek” is good. Any sort of adjective to describe “stinky.”
Brooklyn is on the cover of the new issue of Women’s Health UK, hitting newsstands today (April 3rd). It’s a reprint from her Women’s Health US photo shoot when she was promoting ‘Just Go With It’ but we were able to find some new outtakes as well as some new pieces of interview
Brooklyn Decker ‘awestruck’ by Jennifer Aniston’s bikini body
Published Wednesday, Apr 3 2013, 00:01 BST | By Mayer Nissim
Brooklyn Decker has claimed that she was “awestruck” on seeing Jennifer Aniston in a bikini.
Decker told Women’s Health that she was impressed by the Friends star’s body when they worked together on 2011 comedy movie Just Go With It.
On whose body she would like, Decker said: “It’s got to be Jennifer. She’s so active and had to be in a bikini for Just Go With It – she just had this glow about her.
“I was a bit awestruck! I was invited to do yoga with her on set but they had so many good yogis I was intimidated and chickened out.”
She added: “I hate watching myself on screen! It’s like when you hear your voice on an answering machine, but worse.
“I watch every mannerism, every facial expression. I find myself going, ‘Do I really make that face? Is that really how my voice sounds?’”
Asked about how marrying tennis star Andy Roddick had affected her self-image, Decker said: “For me it’s taken the emphasis off my looks and appearance – the emphasis modelling ingrained in me – and given me a healthier outlook on the female form.
“Being married to an athlete has changed my perception of women and what my body is capable of.”
The full Brooklyn Decker interview appears in the May/June issue of Women’s Health, on sale today (April 3). Also available as a digital edition.
Brooklyn Decker: I ‘chickened out’ of doing yoga with Jennifer Aniston because I felt ‘intimidated’
The 25-year-old supermodel wife of tennis star Andy Roddick tells Women’s Health UK that “Being married to an athlete has changed my perception of women and what my body is capable of.”

Brooklyn Decker covers the May/June issue of Women’s Health UK revealing she was in awe of 44-year-old Jennifer Aniston’s flawless figure on the set of their 2011 film “Just Go With It.”
When the blond beauty was asked who she would want to play her body double, Decker said, “it’s got to be Jennifer. She’s so active and had to be in a bikini for ‘Just Go With It’ — she just had this glow about her. I was a bit awestruck!”
Decker dished that she passed up the opportunity to work out with the former “Friends” star at the time because she felt a little self-conscious.
Decker tells the magazine that ‘My rule of thumb is that if I’m working, I eat healthily. I have such a sweet tooth that I can’t let myself indulge because work is where I spend most of my time, so when I’m at work, no bad food.’
“I was invited to do yoga with her on set but they had so many good yogis I was intimidated and chickened out,” she admitted.
The 25-year-old stunner, who is married to tennis pro Andy Roddick, went on to talk about her hubby’s perception of beauty.
“The biggest thing for me about being with Andy is that athletes in general tend to appreciate different things about women’s bodies. They’re not so concerned with how someone looks, more about how strong and healthy they are.”
Jennifer Aniston (left), 44, and Brooklyn Decker, 25, flaunt their figures in the 2011 film “Just Go With It.” Decker told Women’s Health UK that she was invited to do yoga with the “Friends” star on set but was “intimidated and chickened out.”
“For me it’s taken the emphasis off my looks and appearance — the emphasis modeling ingrained in me — and given me a healthier outlook on the female form,” she continued.
“Being married to an athlete has changed my perception of women and what my body is capable of.”
The actress-model, who is undeniably in tip-top shape, revealed how she keeps a balanced diet, especially with all the food temptations on set.
Brooklyn Decker graces the cover of the new issue of Women’s Health UK, on newsstands April 3.
“Imagine the best junk food you’ve ever seen, available 24 hours a day — that’s what sets are like. There are sweets and doughnuts in front of me all the time,” she said.
“My rule of thumb is that if I’m working, I eat healthily. I have such a sweet tooth that I can’t let myself indulge because work is where I spend most of my time, so when I’m at work, no bad food.”
Her latest workout secret is using weights to tone up.
“I’ve always been really into sports and fitness but have just recently discovered the joys of lifting weights … I feel like weights are something women are hesitant to do because they think it’s going to bulk them up, but I’ve found the exact opposite. I’m my most lean when I’m lifting.”
Once again Brooklyn was spotted today (August 31st) supporting Andy at the US Open, you can check the pictures in our gallery. Andy announced his retirement from tennis this week after the US Open so we wish him the best as always.
Also Brooklyn and her ‘WTEWYE’ cast-mates were on the cover of Woman Magazine (Germany) this month. Here are the scans
