Brooklyn Decker’s Perfect Date

by Andrew Daniels February 14, 2013, 01:15 pm EST

Yes, THIS woman is spending Valentine’s Day alone.
Only one guy is lucky enough to call actress/model Brooklyn Decker his Valentine today—that would be her husband, retired tennis great Andy Roddick—and he’s not even around to take her out tonight.
“Andy’s in California, so we won’t be celebrating Valentine’s,” says the 25-year-old beauty, best known for iconic spreads in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and roles in flicks like Just Go with It and Battleship. But Decker isn’t exactly spending the holiday alone. “Instead, I’ll be watching a bunch of couples make out with each other.”

Relax, guys—she won’t be swapping any spit. Decker partnered with Gillette to see which kind of shave women across the country find sexiest. The results: 85 percent of women surveyed preferred a clean-shaven guy to one with stubble. So today, Decker’s in New York City to help break two world records: “The first one is the world’s largest shaving lesson—and there’s already an existing record for this, which I find to be so bizarre—and then after they get the guys clean-shaven, they’re going to try to break the record for the most kisses between a couple in 1 minute.”

Just another February 14, right? Before the event, we asked Decker to offer up her best Valentine’s Day advice—and you might be surprised to hear her stance on the holiday. Plus, she reveals her weekend plans (“air humping” and Beyoncé), sheds insight on Kate Upton’s new SI cover, and officially comments on being named one of our 100 Hottest Women of All Time.

MH: Why do you think women want a clean-shaven guy?

Decker: Well, it’s funny. I actually kind of like the look of a 5 o’clock shadow. I like a little bit of a stubble, because I think it’s kind of like mountain man-ish. But the thing is, no girl likes to feel like she has sandpaper on her face. Like if Andy has facial hair and he gives me a kiss, I leave with a little red mark on my face. So girls end up getting burn beards on their faces, which is never fun. That’s where the preference to kissing clean-shaven men comes in, which is why I think the study was so skewed in one direction.

MH: So you don’t like Andy with a beard.

Decker: Well I think it looks good that way, but I prefer to give him a kiss if it’s nice and soft, and not going to scratch my face up.

MH: Should I go run home and shave right now, so I’ve got a smooth face tonight?

Decker: Yes! That’s a really cute gift, and honestly a strong hint for a girl to drop for a guy. Because let’s be honest: We’re expected to shave our legs, right? If you’re going to kiss a girl and touch her legs, you don’t want to touch a forest—so why isn’t a guy expected to shave his face?

MH: Fair enough. While we’re on the topic, what’s your ideal Valentine’s date?

Decker: I’ve never been a big celebrator of Valentine’s Day, which sounds like I’m being Scrooge. But coincidentally, it’s the same week the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition always comes out, so I’m always with those girls. For me it was always a time to be with my girlfriends as opposed to actually celebrating the holiday, so I don’t have any plans tonight. I think it’s a really nice day, but if you have to have plans on a calendar to show somebody you like them, you’ve got to work a little bit harder.

MH: Valentine’s aside, what’s date night like in the Decker-Roddick household?

Decker: Well, our group of friends is crazy. Like, this weekend in Austin, all of our friends are getting together to watch the Air Sex World Championship. I’m so excited. It’s like an air guitar contest, but with air humping. I’m not participating, I’m only watching. But the best part about it is people had to win their state to actually make it to nationals! [Laughs]

MH: Wait, there were 50 air humping contests before this one?

Decker: Apparently! Our friend saw it advertised in Austin and said we had to come on down for it. It’s just too good not to watch. But my point with that is we always try to find really funny things for us to do with our friends. We have Sunday Fundays. Like, we’re having a Beyoncé dress-up event for her documentary premiere on Sunday. So it’s never really fancy dinners. We’re just having a really good time with all of our buddies.

MH: Besides a stubble-free face, what else can guys do to impress their women today?

Decker: Even though I don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day, I definitely don’t think it should be ignored. Because it’s Valentine’s and your girl’s probably seeing people around her get things, I think a card’s really sweet. Or a nice, thoughtful note. That would mean so much more to a girl than a big show of flowers and chocolates and dinner and all that. And while I’m sure a lot of girls like that and it’s very nice, a sweet note is fine. You’re acknowledging the holiday, but you don’t necessarily need a holiday to show affection. You don’t have to go all out.

MH: You know, you’re letting a lot of guys off the hook . . .

Decker: I know! Watch me get a ton of guys in trouble for saying that. [Laughs]

MH: Last year, we ranked you the 50th hottest woman of all time. Some of us around here thought that was way too low. I’ll give you a chance to yell at us and demand to be higher.

Decker: No, please! Are you kidding me? I can’t be complaining for being on the hot list. That’s awesome. If guys are fighting for me, I totally appreciate their efforts. Continue to fight the good fight, gentlemen.

MH: As a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue veteran, what do you think of Kate Upton’s new cover?

Decker: I love it. I love that they went to Antarctica. That’s so wild, and that’s never happened, so I think it’s a really beautiful cover.

MH: Apparently Upton said her body shut down after the shoot, since it was so cold there.

Decker: Really? I’ve never been. I went to Alaska for a shoot once, and that was hard enough, but that’s mild compared to Antarctica. I can’t even imagine. Where do you even fly to get to Antarctica? I don’t even know how that works.

MH: Beats me. Sadly, you won’t be appearing in this year’s issue.

Decker: I didn’t do it last year either. It’s funny: I kind of kicked off my career with SI, and the last modeling photoshoot I ever did was with the magazine. But ever since then, it’s been all acting. I miss the girls, and I miss the editors, because they were like family to me. But I did it for 7 years, so it got to a point where it was just time to do different things. For me to really try to be an actor, I think I had to give up the modeling thing.

MH: So it’s officially off the table?

Decker: Yeah. I haven’t done anything in 2 years. I don’t think it’ll happen again any time soon. Sorry!

MH: You just broke the heart of every guy in America.

Decker: Oh my gosh! Have you seen the other girls? Like, Marisa Miller did it for 7 or 8 years, and she left. People missed her, but they’re always bringing in new girls. I loved my time with them, obviously. They gave me my career. But I did my time, and it’s time for other girls to get their chance and kick some butt.

Brooklyn Decker on her next film role and love for TV on CBS News

Posted by clau with No Comments

 

Brooklyn Decker attends The world’s largest shave & kiss event with Gillette at the Time Warner Center on Feb. 14, 2013, in New York.
The 25-year-old actress was in New York away from her sweetheart, Andy Roddick, to work a “Shave and Kiss” event for Gillette. Guys made sure they had a clean shave before puckering up in hopes of breaking the world record for the most kisses in one minute by a couple.

“It’s one of the funnier things that I’ve ever seen because I think the record is 258 kisses in a minute. So if you think about that, it’s four kisses a second so these people are grabbing each other’s faces and basically banging their heads against one another,” Decker told CBSNews.com. “At least they’re doing it clean-shaven and they’re not giving their girlfriends beard-burn, but it’s pretty funny to watch.”

After the shaving lesson and kissing contest, Decker, who graced the 2010 cover of Sports Illustrated, spent some quality time with friends in New York on Thursday night.

“I’ve never really been a big celebrator of it [Valentine’s Day]. I’m usually with my girlfriends,” she said, adding, “This is around the time that Sports Illustrated comes out, so I’ve always been with the girls of the magazine since I was 18 years old. But some of my best Valentine’s memories would probably be when you’re a really little kid and you’re in school and you had to make Valentines for everyone in your class. It was the sweetest thing.”

Now Decker has a permanent Valentine. Decker and Roddick, 30, married in April 2009 and because of their busy schedules, Decker says their relationship still feels fresh. “Luckily travel allows me to do that,” she said.

Decker likely has some traveling coming up very soon, as she’s close to nabbing her next film role.

“I especially love comedy, so we have something in the works now that I can’t announce yet, but hopefully soon I can announce a comedy that I have coming up. It will be pretty fun,” she said. “That’s [comedy] definitely something I find I’m most comfortable in.”

Decker showed off her acting skills in 2012’s “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” and “Battleship,” as well as 2011’s “Just Go With It.”

And she recently made a guest appearance on the Fox sitcom, “New Girl,” starring Zooey Deschanel. A big fan of the show (she’s seen every episode), Decker says she jumped at the opportunity.

“The cast was incredible. This is their second season, so they’ve been working together for a little while now,” Decker said. “The chemistry is great. It’s very fraternal. Everyone’s improving with each other and throwing jokes at each other. It was a great familial set.”

After her “New Girl” appearance, Decker, who previously appeared on “Ugly Betty” and “Chuck,” may have caught the television bug.

“TV is something that’s pretty new to me,” she said. “I kind of started in television and then I did mostly movies and I’ve gone back a little bit to television and I really love it.”

It’s been a few years since Decker has done any modeling, as she continues to shift her focus to film and TV.

“I’m doing all acting and I’m just lucky that I’m actually able to work so hopefully, knock on wood, I’ll stay lucky and continue to work on the acting side,” she said.

Brooklyn Decker Interviewed by Modelinia at The world’s largest shave & kiss event with Gillette

Posted by andre with No Comments

Football Player Ray Rice and Actress Brooklyn Decker attend The world’s largest shave & kiss event with Gillette at Time Warner Center and Modelinia was there and they interviewed Brooklyn. Here is the full interview.

1. What’s going on down there today?  I heard you’re trying to break the record for the largest group shave and largest group of virtual kisses?

Well, it’s Valentine’s Day and Gillette did this really fun Kiss and Tell social experiment where they traveled across the country and found that 85% of women prefer to kiss a guy who has a clean shaven face.  So for Valentine’s Day they decided to help guys get their smooch on and they did a huge shave lesson, after which they attempted to break the world record for the most number of kisses by couples in a minute.  It’s been really interesting.  I actually just posted a Vine video on Twitter and it’s actually terrifying to watch people try to kiss each other.

2. Are there a lot of awkward moments watching all of those kisses happen in front of you?

The thing is, when you are watching them try to break this record they’re just kind of hitting each other.  When you think about it, 250 kisses (the current record) in a minute, it’s 24 per second, so they’re just kind of head butting each other to beat the time, so it’s actually quite entertaining and a great way to spend Valentine’s Day.

3. Do you prefer your men clean shaven or a little scruffy?

I do, I like a clean shave.  I think scruffy looks cool, but it’s never fun to kiss.  It looks good on a guy, makes him look a little rugged, but quite frankly, it really burns your face, burns your skin and it’s just never fun to kiss a guy who’s not clean shaven.  At least says 85%.

4. What’s your idea of the perfect Valentine’s Day date?

I’ve never been a big Valentine’s Day celebrator.  I actually don’t remember the last time I celebrated it.  I think like staying home and cooking dinner sounds fun.  You’re beating all of the Valentine’s Day crowds at the restaurants in like New York where I know everything is booked.  So I think sharing a bottle of wine and having dinner at home sounds fun.

5. What’s the best Valentine’s Day present you ever received?

I don’t know if I really have one because I never really celebrated it a ton.  The most fun Valentine’s Days I’ve had were when I was like in elementary school and everyone in class would give each other little valentines and write each other little notes.  This is a weird story, but I remember when I was in elementary school I used to watch The Simpsons, which was probably inappropriate.  There was this one episode though where Lisa gets this Valentine’s Day card and it said, “I choo, choo, choose you.”  Well, someone actually gave me a “choo, choo, choose you” card and I remember being so excited, so that was probably one of the best Valentine’s Day gifts I’ve ever gotten.

6. You were recently on The New Girl.  What has the transition from modeling to TV been like for you?

It’s tough!  I definitely have to work my butt off just to get better at it.  There are all of these people around me who have been doing television, so I definitely have to work harder at it, but I love it.  I love being on set and I love working with comedians, so to me, it’s just been the most rewarding, fun job and I’m very lucky to be doing it.

7. The SI Swimsuit issue just came out.  Have you seen it yet? What did you think of this year’s issue?

I haven’t seen the issue yet, but obviously I’ve seen the cover.  I’m definitely going to have to pick up my copy at the airport today.  But I thought the cover was beautiful.  I mean the fact they shot in Antarctica is really special because obviously they’ve never done that before, so it’s a very unique, very special cover.
