Sports Illustrated’s 50 Greatest Swimsuit Models

Posted by clau with No Comments

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 Decker

Hometown: Kettering, Ohio
Years in Swimsuit Issue: 6 (2006-2011)
Social: Twitter | Facebook | Instagram

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.

QUOTABLE

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!)”

2006 – Colombia

Brooklyn joins the cast of “Stretch”

Posted by clau with No Comments

Exciting news for everyone! Brooklyn has yet another project coming our way, it was announced that she’s now part of the cast of  the action-comedy Stretch.

Brooklyn Decker Set to ‘Stretch’ for Joe Carnahan and Jason Blum (Exclusive)
The low-budget action comedy stars Patrick Wilson, Chris Pine and Ed Helms

“Battleship” bombshell Brooklyn Decker will join Patrick Wilson, Chris Pine and Ed Helms in Joe Carnahan’s low-budget action-comedy “Stretch,” TheWrap has learned.

Wilson stars as a down-on-his-luck limo driver named Stretch who hopes to relieve his debt to a bookie by driving around a mysterious billionaire (Pine) trying to sell his ledger of criminal associates to the highest bidder.

According to an individual familiar with the project, Decker will play Wilson’s ex-girlfriend, a wild material girl who is engaged to be married to another man.

Helms co-stars as another limo driver who serves as Stretch’s conscience and reminds him that his actions will eventually have consequences.

Jason Blum, Tracy Falco and Carnahan are producing the indie movie, which has been pulling together an impressive cast of stars with strong fan bases. Blumhouse International is handling foreign sales for the movie, which starts production this summer with Leon Corcos co-producing.

Decker is a former Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition cover girl who made her big screen debut as Adam Sandler’s love interest in the 2011 Sony comedy “Just Go With It.” After playing Taylor Kitsch’s girlfriend in Universal’s “Battleship,” she played Dennis Quaid’s wife in Lionsgate’s motherhood comedy “What to Expect When You’re Expecting.” Decker has also appeared on several popular TV series and enjoys a recurring role as Gina Gibiatti on FX’s “The League.”

She’s repped by the Gersh Agency, Authentic Talent and Literary Management and attorney James S. Adams.

Brooklyn Decker Set For Stretch
She’s joining Joe Carnahan’s latest

Surprisingly, appearing in Just Go With It, Battleship and What To Expect When You’re Expecting did not put Brooklyn Decker off films for life. Now she’s joining what should be the best film of her career so far, adding a little female energy to the boys’ club that is Joe Carnahan’s Stretch.

The details on this one seem to shift and change with each new news report on casting, but here’s the current state of play: Patrick Wilson plays a down-on-his-luck limo driver deep in debt to a bookie. The driver sees a chance to score some cash by driving a mysterious billionaire (Chris Pine) around.

Trouble is, this isn’t just a fun ride around clubs and swanky restaurants: the client is looking to sell his list of criminal associates to the highest bidder, which naturally means the trip from hell.

Ed Helms is aboard to play a fellow limo driver who cautions our hero not to get into too much trouble. We’re not sure he listens. Decker is set as Wilson’s ex-girlfriend, a label-obsessed party girl.

Carnahan is shooting this one on a low budget with backing from Jason Blum’s company. We’d expect it to roll into cinemas next year.

Brooklyn Decker’s Met Gala Diary

Brooklyn Decker’s Met Gala Diary

On Monday night, actors, singers, models, and designers flocked to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City for the annual Met Gala–and because the theme this year was “Punk: Chaos to Couture,” their looks had a decidedly hard edge. But how did they get red-carpet ready? ABC News asked actress Brooklyn Decker to keep a journal of her day to find out.
The “Just Go With It” actress, 26, says she started her day bright and early at 6 a.m. “to go spinning and get the juices flowing. I hope I don’t fall asleep at dinner!”
But first it was time for breakfast: “I’ve been nibbling throughout the day to make sure I fit into my dress and don’t faint,” she writes. (See snack photo below!)
“After breakfast I got a manicure and pedicure in a shiny graphite to bring out the colors in my dress–a Peter Pilotto with beading that resembles their beautiful prints. It’s probably the most ‘me’ dress I’ve ever worn to the Met!”
She met with her glam squad after.
“I hang out with my makeup artist, Patrick Defontbrune,” she writes, “and decide to start putting on eyelashes three hours early.”

But then things stopped going so smoothly.
“4pm, zipper emergency!” she writes. “It just broke. I’m going to have to be sewn into the dress! Getting undressed when I get back to the hotel [the Ace in Manhattan] is going to be a challenge.”
One way to ease her nerves? Pretty, shiny things.
“My stylist, Annie Ladino, brings thousands of dollars of jewelry to choose from. Can I wear ten rings at once? And my hair stylist, Patrick Melville, and I discuss hair options. We decide on a pretty side part with a punk twist.”

It’s almost show time–and, according to Decker, a cocktail.
“I may have a second vodka soda to settle my nerves,” she frets. “Red carpets terrify me!”

After stopping to chat with “Good Morning America” on the carpet, the actress made her way into the dinner party, where she mingled with models Kate Upton (“my boo!”) and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

“My table included great American designers Calvin Klein and Donna Karan,” she writes, adding that she was especially excited when Kanye West took the stage to perform. “I’m not sure if it’s okay for me to sing along to the entire performance so I do it very quietly.”
“What a thrill,” she concludes. “[It was] an honor to be here!”

CBS introduced its prime-time 2013-2014 schedule on Wednesday, featuring eight new series — five comedies and three dramas. Five of the new series will premiere in the fall and three at mid-season.

Some big names are on the slate, including Robin Williams, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Will Arnett, Brooklyn Decker, Anna Faris, Allison Janney and Tony Shalhoub.

“Our team has 20 shows renewed…Having this sort of stability makes us really excited,” Leslie Moonves, CBS president and CEO, said Wednesday during a morning conference call. “All I can tell you is the network is alive and healthy,” he added before the TV slate was announced.

CBS noted that comedy is a “priority for us,” as well as offering “more originals, fewer repeats.” A total of 20 shows will return to the CBS schedule, including the No. 1-rated “The Big Bang Theory,” “Mike & Molly” and “2 Broke Girls.” “How I Met Your Mother” will return for a final season, with viewers finally getting to meet and know the mother.

Other returning shows include “NCIS: Los Angeles,” “Criminal Minds,” “Person of Interest,” “Survivor”, “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” “Two and a Half Men,” “The Amazing Race,” “Undercover Boss,” “Hawaii Five-O,” “Blue Bloods,” “Person of Interest,” “The Good Wife,” “The Mentalist” and “48 Hours.”

Tuesdays will be dedicated to drama with “NCIS,” “NCIS: Los Angeles” and “Person of Interest.” Thursdays, meanwhile, will feature a two-hour comedy block from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. ET.

New Comedies

“The Crazy Ones” is a single-camera comedy, starring Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar. This workplace series follows “a larger-than-life advertising genius whose unorthodox methods and unpredictable behavior would get him fired…if he weren’t the boss.” Simon Roberts (Williams) leads a powerful agency, alongside his daughter Sydney (Sarah Michelle Gellar).

“The Millers” is a multi-generational show, starring Will Arnett, Margo Martindale, Beau Bridges and JB Smoove. Arnett portrays Nathan Miller, a recently divorced news reporter looking forward to living the singles’ life until his parents’ marital problems unexpectedly derail his plans.

“Mom” is an edgy family comedy from executive producer Chuck Lorre, starring Anna Faris and Allison Janney. Faris plays a newly sober single mother raising two children. It follows her ups and downs as she tries to navigate it all. Christy (Faris) is a waitress at a posh Napa Valley establishment who is four months clean and doing her best to be a good mom and overcome a history of questionable choices. Janney plays her critical, estranged mother.

“We Are Men” is an ensemble single-camera comedy starring Tony Shalhoub, Kal Penn, Chris Smith and Jerry O’Connell. Debuting on Monday nights, this series will follow four newly single men, living in a short-term housing complex, who are trying to figure out life and love.

The romantic comedy, “Friends with Better Lives,” is schedules to launch mid-season. It centers on six friends at different stages in their lives – ranging from divorced to single. Though they seem happy, each of them secretly questions if the grass is greener on the other side. It stars Majandra Delfino, Kevin Connolly, James Van Der Beek, Brooklyn Decker, Rick Donald and Zoe Lister Jones.

New Dramas

CBS will introduce two new dramas scheduled for Mondays at 10:00 p.m ET; one to launch in the fall, the other to debut in early 2014. The first — “Hostages” — will kick off in the fall. The 15-episode, highly-serialized thriller series from Jerry Bruckheimer stars Toni Collette, Dylan McDermott and Tate Donovan. It follows a doctor, played by Collete, who is taken hostage on the night before she’s supposed to operate on president of the United States.

After the season finale of “Hostages” in January, CBS will put “Intelligence” in that same time slot. Another high-action drama, “Intelligence” sees the return of Josh Holloway of “Lost” fame. It also stars Marg Helgenberger and Meghan Ory. Holloway plays Gabriel, a high-tech intelligence operative enhanced with a super-computer microchip in his brain. He’s the first human ever to be connected directly into the worldwide information grid — with access to Internet, WiFi, telephone and satellite data.

Midseason will see the premiere of the new legal drama, “Reckless. It’s set in Charleston, S.C., “where a gorgeous Yankee litigator and a charming Southern attorney must hide their intense mutual attraction as a police sex scandal threatens to tear the city apart.”
