Brooklyn Decker on what it takes to be a model - 'hair, makeup and Photoshop'
Let's all take a moment for Brooklyn Decker.
Before launching a successful acting career, she was one of the world's most successful supermodels and dished about what it really takes to land the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue.
"Well, you become a model once you go through hair, makeup, and Photoshop," she said on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. "That's true."
Decker (29), who is married to tennis star Andy Roddick, then took out her 2010 cover issue and pointed out her imperfections which had been wiped away with airbrushing describing photoshoots as "a lot of smoke and mirrors."
The mother-of-one said she's in no rush to return to her former career, saying she takes comfort in the difference between the rejection she receives with acting in comparison to modelling.
"I loved that job very much, it took me to a lot of really incredible places, but it has its setbacks at times. It's the one profession where no matter how hard you work, if you're not trendy nothing is happening for you," she sad.
"With acting, if you audition terribly, you know, 'I messed that up, I was horrible, that's why I didn't get the job.
"With modelling, it's because 'I'm not cool this year so I'm unemployed for awhile. You're liked or your not."
