In the September 14 issue of Page Six Magazine, free inside the New York Post, steamy supermodel and tennis wife Brooklyn Decker poses for her first ever shoot on the Brooklyn Bridge and pays homage to her home borough. In the article, Brooklyn talks sex appeal, her marriage, and those Jennifer Aniston rumors and the borough she and hubby, Andy Roddick, call home.
On being Brooklyn Decker:
"A producer recently gave me this weird compliment. He said, â€˜You’re surprisingly unsexy. In film and pictures you turn it on and give the look, and then in person you’re a totally different human being.’ Which is good, because I don’t want to be Brooklyn Decker all the time."
On living in Brooklyn:
"Coming home after a job and hearing honking, I just needed to get out of Manhattan. And we have a dog, Billie Jean, and we wanted her to have space. I grew up in North Carolina, and we spend a lot of our time in Austin, Texas, so Brooklyn is a happy medium. You have Manhattan living, but you still get the neighborhood feel. I’m a total sucker. Now every time I land at JFK or LaGuardia I get so excited, whereas before I used to get stressed out. [Also] Barneys Co-Op is coming and I’m so excited. It’s symbolic of how much Brooklyn has changed, even from like five years ago."
On being married at 23 years old:
"It wasn’t weird for me. My mom got married when she was 19, and my husband’s parents got married youngâ€”in their 20s. And both sets of parents are still together. We’re so lucky. We had that influence around us, and basically, it came down to the fact that neither of us had to get married. We both were successful on our own, we both had our own income, we both had our friends, but it’s just what we wanted. It was never part of my plan to get married young, but we did it because we really wanted to. We saw no other way."
On Andy’s celebritiy crushes:
"Andy definitely has crushes. He loves women in their forties and fifties. He loves Christie Brinkley and Diane Lane. A woman who’s graceful and has it all together. So not me."
On the world of high fashion:
"When I started out, I wanted to be that tiny runway girl, but I’m not super skinny. I have boobs. I’m very all-American. Quirky was definitely in, which I find quite beautiful, but that’s not what I am. In fashion, there needs to be something unique, and I wasn’t edgy. Plus, I’d walk in and be like, â€˜Hey guys!’ with a big smile on my face. And they’d be like, â€˜You are not cool. You are too nice.’ I got a lot of, â€˜If you want to walk a runway, there is a standard that you have to fit. They’re not gonna change the standard for you.’ But funnily enough, the second I started accepting that this is who I am, I started working a ton."
On the Jennifer Aniston rumors:
"I don’t know where that stuff comes from. Two people fighting is much more interesting than two people getting along. But I find it disappointing that people’s first instinct is to pit two women against each other. You get a few bad apples in there, but overall women do root for each other and want to help each other. Jen is such a dollâ€”she is such a girl’s girl. Guys are terrified that if all the women band together we’ll take over the world, so they’re trying to keep us apart."
