Brooklyn Decker to star in CBS show ‘Friends With Better Lives’

Posted by andre with No Comments

The next phase of Decker’s career rolls out March 31, when she stars in the CBS ensemble sitcom following the lives of a group of twentysomething friends. Despite gracing magazine covers — including the 2010 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue — the 27-year-old says she didn’t have much success in the modeling business.

No, really, says 2010 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue cover girl Brooklyn Decker, she “wasn’t that successful” as a model.

Happily, her backup plan is working out.

She concentrates on acting now, and the next phase of that career rolls out March 31, as one of six stars in the CBS ensemble sitcom “Friends With Better Lives.”

“I set out to go into acting,” says Decker, who turns 27 on April 12. “And this show is great, because I love comedy.

“I don’t know if I was considered ‘funny’ when I was growing up. … People who have known me for a while would always be really surprised when I would, like, tell a dirty joke.”

The jokes run more toward innuendo on “Friends With Better Lives,” which is about six twentysomething friends who seem to spend all their time together.

f that sounds suspiciously like another famous show with “Friends” in the title, Decker isn’t pretending otherwise. “We’re a different show with different personalities,” she says. “But I’m sure there will be comparisons. Hey, ‘Friends’ is one of my favorite shows.”

The characters in “Friends With Better Lives” have the expected set of neuroses and quirks, particularly in their love lives. Bobby (Kevin Connolly) and Andi (Majandra Delfino) are married with one little kid and another on the way. Their problem, they say, is they have no love life. Will (James Van Der Beek) is just divorced and fooling nobody when he says he loves being free. Kate (Zoe Lister-Jones) wants the perfect man and keeps getting irregulars.

Decker plays Jules, who has just fallen into a relationship with Lowell (Rick Donald). They can’t keep their hands, or much of anything else, off each other. “They’re like two lost little puppies,” says Decker.

Decker’s own life is a little more orderly, since she’s been married to tennis star Andy Roddick since 2009, but she says she does share some traits with Jules. “We’re both huge cheerleaders for our friends,” she says. “We love our friends. I don’t think it’s at all strange that these people would spend all their time with each other.

“When we aren’t in L.A., we live in Texas, and I can totally relate to that open-door policy. We always have people staying for the weekend.”

While Decker hails from North Carolina and remains a serious fan of the North Carolina Tar Heels and Carolina Panthers, she moved to New York when she was 18. She lived here almost five years, and she says she misses it. “It still feels like home when I’m in Brooklyn,” she says — although, parenthetically, she was named for a horse, not the borough.

She finally had to move, she says, because of the acting. “It got to where I was spending two weeks a month in L.A.,” she says. “So it made sense to move.”

That enabled her to join TV’s annual “pilot season” scrum, where every proposed show finds a cast and films an episode.

“Last year was my first pilot season,” she says. “It’s kind of crazy. They say you’re too young for this role, but maybe there’s another character you could do. Then I finally got this show and we shot it and then you don’t know if it’s going to get picked up. So you wait and wait and wait again and finally I got the phone call.”

Still, she says the TV game may be less nerve-racking than modeling. “Sports Illustrated loved me,” she says, “but I wasn’t that successful in the modeling business.”

Really? Despite SI, The Gap, Cosmopolitan and Victoria’s Secret, among others?

“I went a lot of months without any jobs,” she says, and she shows no sign of regret that after the 2011 swimsuit issue, she switched more or less full-time to acting.

“The hours can be just as long,” she says. “But it’s more fun. On our show, on the nights we’re taping, it can run until 10, 11, midnight. So all our spouses come to the tapings. They’re our cheering section. They bring wine and have a party.”

Better lives indeed.

Brooklyn Decker Is Using Her Legs To Support Vets! [INTERVIEW]

Brooklyn Decker Is Using Her Legs To Support Vets! [INTERVIEW]
posted 02/03/2014 3:16:44 pm by joey parker in celebs, eco-friendly, green.
From the Arctic to Afghanistan, Brooklyn Decker is all about dat exploration life! Just recently, the actress, model and bulldog owner did some adventure hiking in Los Angeles. She teamed up with the Sierra Club to help raise awareness about veterans and the importance of taking time to immerse yourself in nature.
When many vets come back from serving, it can often be a really overwhelming experience adjusting back into civilian life. Connecting with nature is a way that the Sierra Club lends support to veterans. After Brooklyn’s hike, we caught up with her to talk about why we need to help vets, turn our computers off and never take long walks with an English bulldog.
MTV Act: What was it about the Sierra Club military outing that made you want to get involved?

Brooklyn: Sierra Club reached out to me a year ago because I post a lot on social media about being outdoors. Just because that’s how I naturally live. They luckily caught on to it and were like, “We love that you love the outdoors and we love being outdoors, and is this something you would want to get involved with?” so for me it felt like the most natural thing to do.

They are starting a new initiative called Sierra Club Outdoors, and they asked me if I would get involved. The biggest thing is pretty simple — it’s just getting people outdoors. There is a special focus in military families and people coming back from serving because it’s proven to be incredibly therapeutic for people with PTSD.

MTV Act: With nearly 22 vets committing suicide daily, this is clearly a huge issue. What were you most surprised to learn during your military outing ?

Brooklyn: What surprised me most, is the most important thing about getting outside: reminding people coming back from serving what they were protecting in the first place. I mean, when you come back from doing this incredible important job and you see an 8-year-old on an iPad, and not having a conversation with their parent, you may be like ‘What did I do this for?’ When you get outdoors, you realize what it’s all about and why you served. It really helps them acclimate back into civilian life.

MTV Act: Back in 2012, you and Chrissy Teigen traveled to the Middle East on a USO tour. What memory stands out the most for you during this trip?

Brooklyn: It’s a little bit morbid but we were there when U.S. Ambassador Stevens was killed, so we saw it at a turbulent time. It really added a lot of weight to what we were doing. You could see these men and women that are over there serving, you could really see their skills come into action. For us, it was also the week of 9/11, so it was a really interesting time to be there. We went over there with an enormous amount of respect for those serving, and after being there in a time where you actually saw them use the skills they have been training for, it really made it more meaningful for both of us.

MTV Act: What do you want fans to know most about this cause that you’re supporting?

Brooklyn: It’s so simple and seems almost silly because it’s a no-brainer: just get outside. Nowadays, we’re all on Twitter, Facebook, and on our computers, I think just getting outside is so good for the psyche, and so good physically. There are so many problems in the country that result in people not being active and out in the outdoors and it’s the simplest way to have a really good experience and a cool Instagram picture. You’re experiencing something that feels real, connecting you to nature and people. Once again, it’s simple but just get your butt off your computer!

MTV Act: Many feel Veterans get overlooked, and often forgotten. Do you feel we as a country do enough for veterans?

Brooklyn: We can always do more. There will always be a huge disparity between what they did for us and what we are doing for them. There are a ton of organizations that are incredibly supportive and try to make the transition easier. Do I think we do enough? No, because how do you repay someone who sacrifices their life? But there are many organizations trying their best.
MTV Act: We have to ask, did your beloved bulldog, Billie Jean, join you on your hike?

Brooklyn: Oh gosh, no! Are you kidding me? Bulldogs are little diva dogs, they could make it 10 steps and then be like, “OK, I want to hang out in the car.”

MTV Act: Random question: What did you wish you knew when you were 17 that you know now?

Brooklyn: I wish at 17, I knew it was OK to say no. I think at 17, I was such a yes person trying to impress, and scared to disappoint people so you say yes to everything. It’s OK to say no, and do what you want. The earlier kids learn the power of no, the better.
