Swimsuit Model Brooklyn Decker Prayed for Butt and BoobsSports Illustrated swimsuit model Brooklyn Decker says she remembers praying for a bigger butt and ample boobs at one point in her life. God certainly granted her prayer requests, and now the model is living a wealthy life in the limelight.According to FOXNews, Decker, who is married to tennis pro Andy Roddick, claims she was once “gangly with no shape.” She says people sometimes thought she was a boy, although at this point in her life that is awfully hard for people to believe.“I remember praying for boobs and a butt,” Brooklyn Decker says.It looks like God looked down on her quite favorably.The Sports Illustrated swimsuit model is amply endowed in all the right places, which made her a shoe-in for the cover girl spot. She is also appearing in a movie called Just Go With It, which hits theaters on February 11.Decker, with her ample appendages, isn’t completely in the dark about the horrific health of some swimsuit models, however. She spent time when first arriving in New York City with aspiring models who abused themselves with binging and purging in order to maintain what they felt their ideal weight and shape were. She even tried their unhealthy methods and some of their crazy diets herself, but seemed to always wind up gaining weight. Finally, her dad intervened and encouraged her to “stop obsessing about everyone else and wrecking her body.”Good for Brooklyn Decker’s dad! Too bad more celebrity parents wouldn’t intervene in the model daughter’s lives before they have binged and purged to the point that the damage to their bodies is irreparable.Brooklyn Decker has a wholesome quality about her that not all swimsuit models possess. Maybe it’s her family ties. Her dad probably saved her life with his intervention. Perhaps it’s her faith instead. She obviously believes in God if she prayed for a butt and boobs, right? Regardless of the origins of her wholesome look and even more wholesome persona, she is a superstar swimsuit model. And men the world over are quite grateful when she graces the covers of magazines, like she does on the cover of SELF in the February issue. It comes out January 25.

Here’s a new article related to Brooklyn’s interview for Self Magazine
Brooklyn Decker Covers Self: “I Was Wrecking My Body With Crazy Diets”Brooklyn Decker is pretty in pink on the February cover of Self. When we talked to Brooklyn last year, it was refreshing to hear that she has a healthy attitude toward diet and exercise, which wasn’t always the case. The supermodel, 23, told Self that in the beginning of her modeling career she did whatever it took to lose weight — regardless of the consequences.See what she had to say here:On unhealthy eating in the modeling industry: “There were bingers and purgers, and everyone watched each other eat . . . I did juice fasts and crazy diets and ended up gaining weight. My father did an intervention and got me to stop obsessing about everyone else and wrecking my body.”On having insecurities about her body: “When I was younger, I was insecure about being gangly and having no shape. People made fun of me and called me a boy! I remember praying for boobs and a butt. Luckily, I grew into myself and got curves . . .”On her now-healthy attitude toward food: “Eating is more fulfilling if you talk about what you should eat rather than what you shouldn’t. Instead of worrying about what foods might have too much fat or sugar, think, ‘Oh, I should eat these blueberries for the antioxidants.’”On her weakness for candy: “If it were legal, I’d marry a Sour Patch Kid.”
We also added three new pictures from the photoshoot to our gallery:

Here’s what the 23-year-old model and Just Go with It actress had to share:
On splurging – but not too much: “I love Target! You can get trendy, fantastic pieces there. Invest big money only on the classics, like a trench coat, great jeans or black heels. I recently saw this beautiful leather jacket at Gucci. I was, like, I’ll splurge. I’ve worked hard. Then I looked at the price: $10,000! For a jacket! I wanted to vomit on myself. I found one I loved for less than a tenth of that – it was still expensive, but since it is a classic, I know I’ll have it forever, and it goes with everything. I don’t feel guilty about it at all.”
On the importance of appreciating yourself: “When I was younger, I was insecure about being gangly and having no shape. People made fun of me and called me a boy! I remember praying for boobs and a butt. Luckily, I grew into myself and got curves, but when I was first modeling, I wished for that boyish Gisele body again! The grass is always greener. The best advice my mother gave me was to accept everyone for who they are, and you have to do that for yourself, as well.”
Brooklyn also shared a funny story about working with Adam Sandler – when Jennifer Aniston walked by on set, he whispered, “Try not to call her Rachel Green!” Of course, that was all Brooklyn could think of when they finally met…
Sure, she’s smokin’ hot, but supermodel Brooklyn Decker, 23, admits to struggling with her body confidence.
“When I was younger, I was insecure about being gangly and having no shape,” she tells Self’s February issue. “People made fun of me and called me a boy! I remember praying for boobs and a butt. Luckily, I grew into myself and got curves, but when I was first modeling, I wished for that boyish Gisele body again!”
In fact, Decker, who graced the cover of the 2010 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue cops to going to extreme measures to drop pounds.
“When I moved to New York, I was always with other aspiring models,” the model, who stars with Jennifer Aniston in the upcoming rom-com, Just Go With It, tells the mag. “There were bingers and purgers, and everyone watched each other eat. It freaked me out. I did juice fasts and crazy diets and ended up gaining weight. My father did an intervention and got me to stop obsessing about everyone else and wrecking my body.”
These days the self-confessed candy lover — “If it were legal, I’d marry a Sour Patch Kid” — avoids the scale and focuses on loving her food.
“Eating is more fulfilling if you talk about what you should eat rather than what you shouldn’t,” says Decker, who wed tennis ace Andy Roddick, 28, in 2009. “Instead of worrying about what foods might have too much fat or sugar, think, Oh, I should eat these blueberries for the antioxidants.”
Yes, you can take your picture with this woman. Esquire has joined with Goldrun, a technology firm, to create a unique new experiment in Augmented Reality. As part of it, you’re about to be in the photos above. On your phone.
First, make sure you’re using an iPhone (the only way it’ll work) and download the free Goldrun app. Then, head to one of more than 700 Barnes & Noble stores across America. (Go to barnesandnoble.com to find one near you.)
Once you’re in the store, find the magazine section, activate the GoldRun app, hold up your phone so you can see the store and/or its immediate surroundings on the screen, and before long an image of Brooklyn (not unlike the ones above) will appear on your screen next to, on top of, or near whatever else is happening in the store. It’ll look like she’s actually there in the store with you, and you can snap a picture of her, have a friend take your picture with her, and pretend that you actually saw and/or met Brooklyn Decker.
