Brooklyn Decker Talks To LOOK

Posted by andre with No Comments

Brooklyn Decker, model turned actress and star of Just Go With It chats to LOOK about bikini rivalry with her co-star and girl crush Jennifer Aniston, and why Hob Nobs are her guilty pleasure..

LOOK: Just Go With It is your first big screen role after a hugely successful modeling career. How was the experience?

BD: I was completely terrified, so nervous… Jen [Jennifer Aniston] and Adam [Sandler] are my idols and I grew up watching both of them.I was so starstruck. The first day I met Jennifer Aniston I think I maybe said two words to her because every time I tried to say something it was like I had verbal vomit!

LOOK: How was it working with Ms Aniston?

BD: She’s wonderful. I think she’s just the ideal woman in Hollywood. I mean, to find a beautiful woman who is good at comedy and drama is a rarity and I appreciate she can do it. She’s so beautiful and yet somehow incredibly relatable.

LOOK: Is she tiny in real life?

BD: Yes! But then I’m like 5ft 9ins so I’m a giant compared to most people in Hollywood. She’s so little and petite and the cutest thing. She has these giant eyes. They’re like big pools of blue, so beautiful, and I caught myself drooling a few times staring at her.

LOOK: Was there any friendly rivalry between you and Jennifer Aniston during those well-publicised bikini scenes?

BD: I think it’s been written about that there was but there really wasn’t. I was staring at her with envy because she looks so darn good and her abs are ripped and she just looks beautiful. But it was actually fun. We were shooting in Hawaii in these waterfalls and all of us were pinching ourselves.

LOOK: How does it compare to modeling?

BD: As a model everything is very contrived, it’s very posed, it’s very meticulous, but with acting it’s sort of the opposite. It’s well thought-out but it’s very spontaneous and it’s supposed to feel very natural and not posed at all. I actually had more fun doing the acting than I did the modeling.

LOOK: Do you have any guilty pleasures?

BD: Sugar! I love candy and when I come over to England it’s digestives and Hob-Nobs. We don’t have those in the States and they’re delicious!

Brooklyn talks JGWI, Battleship & Slow-Mo Scenes

Brooklyn Decker on Just Go With It, Battleship, and Sexy, Slow-Mo Entrances

If you weren’t familiar with Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover model Brooklyn Decker last year, you certainly became acquainted with the Ohio-born blonde this February when Columbia Pictures used her — more specifically, her body in a yellow bikini — as the primary marketing tool for Adam Sandler’s latest rom-comJust Go With It. Contrary to what the promos would have you believe, Decker didn’t spend her first feature debut emerging from different bodies of water in slow-motion; she played a sweet-natured school teacher with whom Sandler’s character falls in love and Jennifer Aniston’s character falls in perpetual annoyance.

In celebration of Just Go With It’s home release this week, the model/actress phoned Movieline to reminisce on her first meeting with Adam Sandler, reveal what farm animal the Just Go With It director compared her to and toy with the idea of going indie.

Congratulations on your first feature and now your first DVD.
Thanks! It’s been an exciting week. You’d never imagine that you’d be on the cover of a DVD. Strangely, it kind of seems like a yearbook for us. It has all of our memories from one experience inside of it. I’m really excited to see all of the bonus features.

Some actors and actresses talk about having a hard time watching themselves onscreen. Did you experience the same thing with Just Go With It?
Absolutely. 100 percent. I’ve seen the movie at the initial Sony screening and then at the premiere and I haven’t seen it since. This was my first time in a movie so it’s especially hard to watch myself onscreen because I’m so darn critical. I probably won’t be watching it again — not because I don’t love the movie but because it’s too tough to watch myself.

I appreciate that you and Adam Sandler didn’t make your character unlikable, which would have been the easy thing to do with “the other woman.” Is that something that you and Adam were conscious of while filming?
Adam and I did have a conversation. I auditioned for this role about four times before the table read and I think part of the reason why they had a hard time casting the role was because it’s easy for “the other woman” to be seen as negative. She is younger and made to seem like this dream-like character with the slow-mo coming out of the water scene. I think it’s easy to make her, for lack of a better word, bitchy. Adam wanted her to be likable because while the audience could somewhat predict the outcome of the movie, he wanted them to cheer for both of the women. For me, that made it more fun to play.

You mentioned the slow-motion bikini sequence. What was it like shooting that?
It was horrible! No, it was funny. You’d be surprised at how technical it is because you think it’s just walking on the beach while they lower the camera. But you have to walk out of the beach, you have to pose. You have to, like, sway your hips a certain way so that it’s caught correctly on camera. I think we did that scene eight times. After the first take, a producer came out to me and said, “You know, I told you that I wanted ‘sexy’ and that looked more like a horse.” I laughed but I had to do it again and again and again because it’s so technical and the slow-mo camera catches everything.

And then you had to watch that sequence played on loop in the Just Go With It promos…
That’s another thing! It’s not fun to watch yourself in a bikini on a giant screen.

Were you bothered that Sony relied on that sequence so much to sell the movie?
No, I mean, it made sense. Our movie came out around the Super Bowl so you could definitely tell what demographic they were targeting with the advertisements. But it’s Happy Madison and they’re so cheeky and they’re fun and it’s an Adam Sandler movie so people know to expect a fun comedy. Because of that, it made it OK with me because I love those guys. Not to say that I wasn’t embarrassed when I saw myself on every other commercial. You never want to see yourself slow-mo in a bikini.

Do you have a ‘No More Slow-Mo Bikini Shots’ clause in your acting contracts going forward?
I mean, it depends on the film but to be honest, I’ve been in a swimsuit for so many years and was in a bathing suit most of the time in this movie so in the future, I’d probably like to do something that doesn’t rely on me being in a bathing suit. [Laughs] I’m going to try to mix it up. I’d like to do something that doesn’t necessarily rely on the physical traits of a character.

Are you tempted to do small indie roles to prove your acting ability?
Of course. It sounds so cliched to want to move onto something independent but I did two big movies coming out of the gate which I was so lucky to be a part of, Just Go With It and Battleship. I just really would like a well-rounded role with a lot of character to it. Usually those are in indie films but if I found something that was quirky and smart in a studio film, I’d love to be a part of it. I think the smartest thing for me to do right now is something smaller because with one movie, no one can really see whether or not I can act yet.

You have Peter Berg’s Battleship coming out next May. What kind of character do you play?
I’m so excited for it to come out. My character is a really tough chick. What I love about Peter Berg and why I wanted to do this project was you look at every female in his movies and they are never the damsel in distress or the accessory. If you look at Charlize Theron in Hancock, you know that she’s a badass. In The Kingdom, you look at Jen Garner and she is super tough. He gives his females so much charm, wit and toughness and my character embodies all of those things.

Finally, at Movieline we play a game called My Favorite Scene where we ask actors and actresses to name the one cinematic moment that really inspired them. What is yours?
Mine is really dark and makes you cringe and feel really gross after. In Closer, there’s a scene between Julia Roberts and Clive Owen where they are confronting each other in their living room. It’s this scene that is so intimate that it hurts to watch. There are all of these subtleties about their performances. I remember seeing that scene in particular and thinking, “If I could do this that well, that’s what acting should be like.” Their dialogue is so good and the scene is structured around their pauses, which you see so rarely. It’s a very cool, very dark scene.

Decker did a little Britney Spears kareoke on air, and then Dan did Elvis’ “In the Ghetto.”

Decker also said that Andy Roddick is actually a great dancer. He could even be a backup for a boy band. She said that she can’t dance at all.

Dan and Brooklyn looked back on the experience of making with Just Go With It. She said she didn’t love the slow-mo of her coming out of the beach. She said everything was bouncing and she didn’t like that.

Brooklyn also talked about which women she loved: Chrissy Teigen, Jennifer Aniston, Tina Fey and Beyonce were among her favorites.
