Brooklyn Decker: 'I'm Named After a Horse'
Here is what the 25-year-old What to Expect When You’re Expecting and Battleship actress had to share with the mag:
On her name: “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.”
On her figure: “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.”
On leaving modeling and starting film: “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.”
