What makes you feel sexy?
Self-confidence is sexy. It takes work to have it be that way, to have self-confidence within yourself and also be able to project that outside. But if you can be your best self you can be, that is sexy.
How different are your public and private personas?
They started off vastly different! But as I get older, they are morphing into a new sarcastic superhuman.
What is your favourite CK piece from set?
Damn, well CK made me take it all off and give it back when I left the shoot. But seriously, I loved it all.
What is it like being in a CK Underwear campaign?
I mean, I really think that I have peaked at this moment…unless I get a call back from CK to do another campaign.
What is sexier? Perfectly polished or unfiltered?
Unfiltered! I can only relate with the real person. If I can get through the smoke and mirrors and I find chemistry with a real person—that is as sexy as it gets.
