Jenny Shimizu Joins 'Make Me A Supermodel'

Former model Jenny Shimizu is returning to the spotlight as a judge on Bravo’s Make Me a Supermodel. Here’s what the 41-year-old had to say to Life & Style:

You quit modeling to become a mechanic. Why come back now? Being a mechanic is really my passion, and I’ll always do that. But I actually love fashion and modeling too. I like the fact that I came from a different place: I’m Japanese, I’m small, I have tattoos, I’m a lesbian. Shows like this offer a huge amount of possibility and opportunity.

Your Wikipedia entry says you dated Madonna during your heyday. What is dating? Madonna’s a wonderful woman. When I first got to New York, I knew very little, and she knew all about the city — she was a wonderful kind of tour guide.

And how would you define your much-publicized relationship with Angelina Jolie? People say you two were together for around 10 years. Are you still in touch? It was like a college romance; it happened so long ago. When it was happening, it was wonderful — you’re meeting an incredible woman and you celebrate that. But then you see it on TV and it becomes almost ugly… To give the relationship integrity, I tend to be quiet about it. Things are implied in order to start a controversy. The relationship happened when we were both children… [No, we don't keep in touch] This comes up every three years or so. Saying we’re in Cambodia having an affair sells magazines.

Are you surprised that Angelina now has kids and is with a man? No. Gender never really plays an issue with someone like her who’s attractive to everybody. And Angelina was always going to adopt a lot of kids. She told me she was going to, and she’s a woman of her word.

Make Me a Supermodel premieres on Wednesday, March 4 @ 10/9c on Bravo.

    This chick is unreal. Jolie was what 18/19 yrs old when she met her on a movie set then went and married Johnny Lee Miller. At the time JS said the relationship was nothing big or even important. Once Jolie reaches this height of fame suddenly it’s a college romance? lol. She had a real relationship with Madonna for a number of years off and on but she knows it’s Jolie then sells for her.

    sad that angie has people whose claim to fame is being in her far away past. But it happens to Brad too. :S
    Good that she said nothing bad, she really does not have much herself to offer, but quotes and stories from long ago. Bad that the mags and other mean people will twist every word, and invent more!.

    Geez, wasn’t this chick shooting her mouth off about the relationship over the past five years or so? Didn’t she say Angie would never stay faithful to men? Didn’t she talk about Angie rather explicitly?
    Now she is cleaning up her act???
    Bottom feeding is right Jared.

    Cassie Says:

    Who gives a @rap? All those people who are disgusted with the way some of you treat Jennifer Aniston who is a straight-up heterosexual female. Both A-J and Madonna are disgusting females so what does that make the men who want to be with them and, yet, share them with other women? We’re either gay or heterosexual and most psychologists would say there’s no in between but someone who hasn’t come to grips with their sexuality in this lifetime.

    It doesn’t bother me at all that at one time Jolie experienced life to it’s fullest, nothing to be ashamed of. The media blows everything out of proportion and it’s truly sickening because they only focus on her past wild days. Angelina’s been open and very honest and I admire her more for that because it shows me she’s really comfortable and secure in her own skin, take it or leave it. If Brad had a problem with it he wouldn’t fight so hard for gay rights. By the way Jenny good luck.

    Woah JJ! Are you having fun!? Talk about adding fuel to the fire! The Pitt/Jolie/Aniston media war rages out of hand as it is! Looks like a crap-load of ammo for Team Aniston! Yep, the media feeds your frenzy. Are you all pulling your hair out yet? If not, it shouldn’t be long now.

    Uncle Says:

    Number 5 back down. This chik has more balls than Brad Pitt ever will.


    Angelina is a free bird . let her be. She is a woman of her word… I know because I read her interviews and she’s always pretty much honest :lol:

  14. 14
    Uncle??? Says:

    uncle are you serious? She wasnt honest when she said that she would never have biological children because there were too many children that needed to be adopted. Was she honest about not wanting or needing to be with Brad Pitt while he was married? Was she honest every time she had a baby or adopted she said she was taking off from film for awhile to raise her children? And the list goes on and on….

    Lesbian Angelina Says:

    Lesbian Angelina sure has some great stories to tell her kids. AND the reason Ms. Jenny backed off about still seeing Angelina is that 3 years ago in a magazine article she stated that they would always love each other AND that they still saw each other as much as their schedule would permit. THIS was while she was with Brad and when she was pregnant with Shiloh..

    Oh that Angie – what a gem -

    hmmmm Says:

    I bet every Asian kid she adopts she does it with loving thoughts of Jenny… how sweet.

    Oh by the way Jenny did say in an article not too long ago that Angie would neve LOVE a man. Use a man yes, but, LOVE one no. Jenny said that they were intricately intertwined.

    pokeman Says:

    if angie is still interested in a woman, she wouldn’t have married (two men) and stays with (brad) she would have continue to date/married both sexes. therefore, I think she was young and wanted to experience things. like she said. she wants to be a woman to brad and mother to her children. stop go back to the past. angie is a different woman now. get over it haters.
