Brooklyn Decker Covers Self: “I Was Wrecking My Body With Crazy Di

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:

Brooklyn: “Dad did an invervention to stop me obsessing over weight”

Here are some new notes about Brooklyn, that lead us to think that she might also be in the cover of Self Magazine this month.
Dad intervenes
Brooklyn Decker thanks her dad for her fantastic figure. She tells Self magazine’s new issue, “I was always with other aspiring models. 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.”
During the shoot, Decker, who stars with Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler in “Just Go With It,” told the crew that when Aniston arrived for the first day of filming, Sandler whispered, “Try not to call her Rachel Green,” her “Friends” character.
Brooklyn Decker’s father staged an “intervention” to stop her worrying about her weight.
The 23-year-old Victoria’s Secret model admits she was “freaked out” when she first started modeling because of the extreme measures other catwalk beauties used to stay in shape and felt she also had to try strict diets.
She explained to Self magazine: “I was always with other aspiring models. 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.”
Brooklyn – who is married to tennis star Andy Roddick – recently made her movie debut in romantic comedy ‘Just Go With It’ and admits she surprised her co-stars Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler with her less-than-glamorous appearance.
She explained recently: “When people hear ‘bikini model’ they have one thing on their mind.
“Then they see you’re someone who shows up to the set in pajamas and no make-up, watches sports and belches.”
Brooklyn thinks the role in the romantic comedy is the perfect way for her to start off in the movie industry.
She said: “‘Just Go With It’ has just wrapped and it’s definitely the most exciting thing I’ve done. It was a big first for me. It really opened up a whole new field for me to go into, and I just felt really lucky to go to work on such a big movie. It was really cool to be a part of that and learn the process of acting.”
