Brooklyn covers Women’s Health UK

Posted by clau with No Comments

Brooklyn is on the cover of the new issue of Women’s Health UK, hitting newsstands today (April 3rd). It’s a reprint from her Women’s Health US photo shoot when she was promoting ‘Just Go With It’ but we were able to find some new outtakes as well as some new pieces of interview


Brooklyn Decker ‘awestruck’ by Jennifer Aniston’s bikini body
Published Wednesday, Apr 3 2013, 00:01 BST | By Mayer Nissim

Brooklyn Decker has claimed that she was “awestruck” on seeing Jennifer Aniston in a bikini.

Decker told Women’s Health that she was impressed by the Friends star’s body when they worked together on 2011 comedy movie Just Go With It.
On whose body she would like, Decker said: “It’s got to be Jennifer. She’s so active and had to be in a bikini for Just Go With It – she just had this glow about her.

“I was a bit awestruck! I was invited to do yoga with her on set but they had so many good yogis I was intimidated and chickened out.”

She added: “I hate watching myself on screen! It’s like when you hear your voice on an answering machine, but worse.

 

“I watch every mannerism, every facial expression. I find myself going, ‘Do I really make that face? Is that really how my voice sounds?'”

Asked about how marrying tennis star Andy Roddick had affected her self-image, Decker said: “For me it’s taken the emphasis off my looks and appearance – the emphasis modelling ingrained in me – and given me a healthier outlook on the female form.

 

“Being married to an athlete has changed my perception of women and what my body is capable of.”

The full Brooklyn Decker interview appears in the May/June issue of Women’s Health, on sale today (April 3). Also available as a digital edition.

Brooklyn Decker: I ‘chickened out’ of doing yoga with Jennifer Aniston because I felt ‘intimidated’

Brooklyn Decker covers the May/June issue of Women’s Health UK revealing she was in awe of 44-year-old Jennifer Aniston’s flawless figure on the set of their 2011 film “Just Go With It.”

When the blond beauty was asked who she would want to play her body double, Decker said, “it’s got to be Jennifer. She’s so active and had to be in a bikini for ‘Just Go With It’ — she just had this glow about her. I was a bit awestruck!”

Decker dished that she passed up the opportunity to work out with the former “Friends” star at the time because she felt a little self-conscious.

 

Decker tells the magazine that ‘My rule of thumb is that if I’m working, I eat healthily. I have such a sweet tooth that I can’t let myself indulge because work is where I spend most of my time, so when I’m at work, no bad food.’

“I was invited to do yoga with her on set but they had so many good yogis I was intimidated and chickened out,” she admitted.

The 25-year-old stunner, who is married to tennis pro Andy Roddick, went on to talk about her hubby’s perception of beauty.

“The biggest thing for me about being with Andy is that athletes in general tend to appreciate different things about women’s bodies. They’re not so concerned with how someone looks, more about how strong and healthy they are.”

“For me it’s taken the emphasis off my looks and appearance — the emphasis modeling ingrained in me — and given me a healthier outlook on the female form,” she continued.

“Being married to an athlete has changed my perception of women and what my body is capable of.”

The actress-model, who is undeniably in tip-top shape, revealed how she keeps a balanced diet, especially with all the food temptations on set.

Brooklyn Decker graces the cover of the new issue of Women’s Health UK, on newsstands April 3.

“Imagine the best junk food you’ve ever seen, available 24 hours a day — that’s what sets are like. There are sweets and doughnuts in front of me all the time,” she said.

“My rule of thumb is that if I’m working, I eat healthily. I have such a sweet tooth that I can’t let myself indulge because work is where I spend most of my time, so when I’m at work, no bad food.”

Her latest workout secret is using weights to tone up.

“I’ve always been really into sports and fitness but have just recently discovered the joys of lifting weights … I feel like weights are something women are hesitant to do because they think it’s going to bulk them up, but I’ve found the exact opposite. I’m my most lean when I’m lifting.”

Brooklyn Featured in Vogue

Posted by andre with No Comments

From idea to execution, ten CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalists redefine what it means to be an American original. Here, we take a look at where they’re coming from, where they’re going, and the actor and musician muses who inspire them most right now.

Brooklyn Decker for VOGUE

“I learned how to shoot a machine gun,” exclaims Brooklyn Decker, the 24-year-old model-turned-actress (and other half to tennis superstar Andy Roddick) who’s just finished filming Peter Berg’s high-octane, alien-invasion flick, Battleship out next summer, in Hawaii. “At one point, I was sticking my arm through a windshield shooting it, and I started bleeding. Everyone was like, ‘Just use it!’ ”

As Decker (pictured above with Ohne Titel designers Alexa Adams and Flora Gill) points out, the rough-and-tumble demands of working on a big summer blockbuster like Battleship are obviously miles away from the more sedate photo shoots she’s used to working on. But now that the former Sports Illustrated pinup has made a commitment to acting—first in this past spring’s Just Go With It, with Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston, as well as the upcoming 2012 pregnancy-themed comedy, What To Expect When You’re Expecting (“My character basically breezes through her pregnancy, which is really annoying to watch,” she jokes. “If I’m honest, it’s setting an unrealistic standard for myself and every woman out there”)—she’s started to relish the prospect of picking up at least a few bumps and scrapes in the name of getting a good shot.

“It’s fun to bring stuff like that home,” she continues.“They’re like battle wounds. Every time we filmed that scene over the next couple of weeks, they had to add blood and a cut to match me cutting my arm.”

Brooklyn Decker: I’m not any good … yet

Posted by andre with No Comments

Brooklyn Decker FansMore famous as a Sports Illustrated swimwear model, or as Mrs Andy Roddick, than as an actress, Brooklyn Decker was thrust into the Hollywood limelight earlier this year in Just Go With It where she had to match quips with Adam Sandler and out-sexy Jennifer Aniston.

Decker is candidly honest in describing how she felt. “I was terrified, completely terrified, so nervous… Jen [Jennifer Aniston] and Adam [Sandler] are my idols and I grew up watching both of them, so suddenly to be working alongside them was a very intimidating task. But I think it was the best way to learn, for this to be my first film with the two of them.”

It is clear the 24 year old, Ohio-born daughter of a pacemaker seller is still more of a star-gazer than star in the Hollywood spectrum.

“Oh I was so star-struck. I wish I wasn’t but I was. The first day I met Jen I think I maybe said two words to her because every time I tried to say something I would nervously ramble on” she admits.

While for many Hollywood is a calling, for Decker growing up it wasn’t even a fantasy.

“To be honest I grew up in such small towns [in Ohio and North Carolina] that being an actor wasn’t even a remote possibility. No one from North Carolina was in movies, you know? I actually wanted to be a veterinarian, I wanted to take care of animals” she recalls.

It was her rapid rise through the modeling world, after being discovered in a Charlotte mall, that inadvertently inspired her acting ambitions.

“I got really lucky with the modeling and I started studying acting as a way to get some education because I wasn’t going to college or university. That’s when I fell in love with it. Now that I’m acting I’m working so hard to get better because I know I have a lot of room for improvement.”

“I’m not any good yet, but I’m trying to learn. I’m studying and trying to get better, and I feel I’m at a very early stage in my career. I hope to grow with each role.

Decker’s self-deprecation seems genuine, if tied to a healthy dose of ambition. She has clear career goals and her sights are set on another comedy big shot. “I started with comedy and the second movie I’ve done [Battleship] is an action war film. I want to do something smaller next, something indie.”

“I like anything Judd Apatow does. I don’t know if you’d call those romantic comedies, they’re more straight comedies, but there’s a lot of heart to them. He finds a way to make the characters very funny and sometimes crass but still with a lot of heart. I’d love to work with Judd, actually. I’ve met him and again I could barely get a word out because he’s so smart.”

Decker was widely linked with the “Megan Fox replacement” part in Michael Bay’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon, a role that ultimately went to fellow model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Yet those sort of seen-but-not-heard roles don’t really appeal.

“There are more female-driven movies coming out, but it is more difficult for women. I’ve gotten a few offers where you play the wife of a really great character or the girlfriend of a great character, and while it’s nice to be part of a great movie you want to play someone of substance even if it’s a small role. In a lot of movies women play accessories and that doesn’t interest me so much” she said.

Yet she is under no delusions about her role in Just Go With It, including multiple bikini-clad sequences in the Hawaii-based second half of the film. “Seeing my half-naked body up on that giant screen… I knew I was going to have to see myself in slow-mo over and over again.”

Though she’s graced magazine covers and is the subject of admiring gazes from many, watching herself on the big screen is no source of enjoyment. “I can’t. It’s awful. It’s a horrible experience. Everything annoys you from your mannerisms to your voice. With dailies I’m like, ‘I’m not going to continue watching this because I know I’m going to be so upset’.”

Staring at Jennifer Aniston on set was a different matter entirely however, with Decker finding herself gazing too avidly. “She’s tiny! She’s so little, but then I’m like 5ft 9ins so I’m a giant compared to most people, but 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.”

The stares are what Decker believes inspired the reports of rivalry between the two on set, “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.”

While she might feel she hasn’t mastered acting or comedy yet, the swimsuit model who catches herself gawking at women has at least got a firm grasp of irony.

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!

Just Go With It is out now on Blu-ray and DVD, courtesy of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
