Brooklyn Decker at ‘The Late Show with David Letterman’ talking about modeling and #FWBL
Brooklyn Decker and Andy Roddick are seen at LAX airport.
YourTango: Your character Jules just got engaged. Did it remind you of your own engagement?
Brooklyn Decker: Not really. It was very unglamorous. It was an unplanned, hasty proposal but it worked! Jules and I have a lot of similarities, though. I feel like we’re both optimists, quite energetic, friendly people in our groups of friends but at the same time we’re quite different. I would like to think I’m more grounded, however I’m not sure that’s necessarily always true. I can relate to what she’s going through, but to be honest, Andi (Majandra Delfino) is the most similar to me. She’s the core of the group; she’s a family person. There’s something really relatable about her. Her priorities are similar to mine.
YourTango: Do you have a close group of friends like on the show?
Brooklyn Decker: I do. I have a lot of friends like Kate (Zoe Lister-Jones). We live in L.A. so of course there’s some snark involved.
YourTango: What’s the key to making your relationship work?
Brooklyn Decker: Laughter. It’s pretty easy — it’s as simple as laughing.
Your Tango: Do you ever argue?
Brooklyn Decker: Absolutely. I’m human! I was on the debate team so I love it. And I’m also an asshole. I am very bullheaded and stubborn and I like to be right all the time. So I’m not the easiest person.
YourTango: Any plans to have kids?
Brooklyn Decker: I want a lot of babies. I have no idea when but hopefully I’ll have a lot. But until then I have Majandra’s baby Louie to keep me occupied. We visited Majandra in the hospital when she had him. We were with her from the time she found out she was pregnant.
YourTango: You stopped modeling a couple of years ago. Why? And do you miss it?
Brooklyn Decker: No. It wasn’t the business for me. It didn’t fulfill me in any way, but I think models don’t get enough credit for the business minds that they have. I made the decision to commit to acting, so I stepped away from it.
YourTango: You have a couple of movies due out this year.
Brooklyn Decker: Yes, one is called Stretch. It’s an action dramedy. The other one is calledCasual Encounters. It’s a little romantic comedy. I’m involved with Taran Killam in that.
ESQUIRE.COM: This is your first big role in a TV comedy. Are you a funny person?
BROOKLYN DECKER: I’m more one of those people you laugh at and not with. I’m not the one with the jokes, I’m the one who falls on her face going up a flight of steps. I’ve made people laugh my whole life, it’s never been willingly. This was a highly different format for me: having jokes, letting them breathe, and making people laugh at you.
ESQ: What’s your type of humor?
BD: I have a very dirty sense of humor.
ESQ: You do?
BD: Yeah, I like pressing the envelope. I think it’s funny when something bold comes out of someone’s mouth that you’re not expecting, things that catch you off guard. That’s what I really like. I like an English sense of humor: dry, dirty, a little bit off. That’s kind of my taste.
ESQ: One of the first lines that comes out of your character Jules’s mouth is “I had sex for 12 straight hours.” Have you ever known anyone who’s been open about their sex habits like that?
BD: I have a group of friends who are very open in that way. I feel like I’m more of the Andy-Bobby [played by Majandra Delfino and Kevin Connolly] couple in my life. Most of my friends have lived at my house, we talk about everything, there are no boundaries. For me, that’s something people would talk about. But I have personally never known a person to have sex for 12 hours straight, no.
