Brooklyn Decker: I’m Not Great Looking
Brooklyn Decker doesn't think she looks "that great in person."
The Sports Illustrated model-turned-actress insists she isn't as attractive in person as she appears in her photo shoots and she didn't enjoy seeing herself on the big screen in her new movie What To Expect When You're Expecting.
"I have a glow, but it's good make-up. I cover up spots. Jeez, I'm not all that great in person ... And seeing myself all blown up on-screen? Times a million enlarged? My face looks like it's been PhotoShopped. It's unnerving," the 25-year-old blonde - who stars in the film alongside Cameron Diaz and Matthew Morrison - told the New York Post.
Blonde bombshell Brooklyn - who married tennis player Andy Roddick in 2009 - has previously starred in Just Go With It and Battleship, but admits her transition into movies didn't come easily: "I've taken acting lessons for some time. I'm lucky. I've done three movies. But nobody sees my two years of failed auditions. Lots of rejection - and I'm still trying. When nobody knew my name or who I was, there were a few guest shots but dozens of TV shows and pilots I didn't get. I'm used to the word 'no.'"
But Brooklyn claims the life of a cover star is even more fraught with rejection than the acting world. "I'd never want my child to be a model. Before modeling I didn't even have a passport, so in truth that's helped me, but it's a not fair industry. It's hard work, which does not often equate to success," she explained.
