PROVENANCE: North Carolina.
AGE: 25.

SO, HOW DOES A SOUTHERN GIRL END UP WITH A NAME LIKE THAT? “I’m named after a horse. My mom’s best friend had a horse named Brooke, so my dad suggested ‘Brooklyn’ as a more formal version, and it just stuck—and now I live in Brooklyn part-time, so go figure.”

LEARNING CURVE: Believe it or not, Decker’s voluptuous build wasn’t in demand when she started modeling. “There were countless jobs I didn’t get because of my figure. I wasn’t that successful as a model, ever. I just had a few clients that really embraced my curves.”

INTO THE UNKNOWN: At the height of her modeling career, Decker decided to walk away from it. “The Sports Illustrated cover was the last thing I shot. That week, I told my agent, ‘You know what, I really …I don’t want to be a model anymore. I really want to do movies.’ And I think he wanted to wring my neck at the moment.” Her acting career has blossomed, with two films, Battleship and What to Expect When You’re Expecting, due out on the same day, May 18.

LONG-TERM PLANS: Decker married tennis star Andy Roddick in 2009. “I think that I’d like to try to be a superwoman and have kids and work, so we’ll see if I can actually accomplish that. But, if we’re talking dream scenario, that would probably be it.” If anyone knows about living the dream, she does.

Posted by clau with No Comments

After three months & many locations today was the last day of ‘Just Go With It’ & Brookie made some tweet about it

Aaaaaand that’s a wrap on my first film.. I cried like a baby. After 3 months of shooting, I’m SO proud of the team.

Now she’s heading to Paris & we can’t wait to know if she’s going in a well-deserved vacations or for work! … We’re dying to see some new pictures/modeling work but we also know that she’s been working a lot too, so whatever she’s going for we’re happy for Brookie!

Remember that ‘Just Go With It’ hits theaters next Valentine’s Day!
