On the one crucial update to the iconic red one-piece she wears in Baywatch:
“It’s scuba material, which is awesome because it’s literally like wearing Spanx that suck you right in. I was like, cheeseburgers, no problem. Just zip that thing up and it’s like it never happened.”
On how she didn’t want to be ‘the hot girl’ and urged the director of Baywatch to rewrite her character C.J.:
“I wasn’t interested in playing the hot-girl role. I didn’t want her to be an object but rather a dynamic, real person.”
On how her siblings have always kept her in check:
“I was 5 foot 9 when I was 12. My siblings would tease me and call me big friendly or freaky giant, and later, when I was approached about modeling, they would joke, ‘The BFG is gonna be a model? That clunky thing? They know how to keep me in check all right.”
… says the former Sports Illustrated model in Cosmopolitan this month.
