Well I remember myself shooting for Sports Illustrated
00:08
a couple years ago in Zambia with cheetahs.
00:11
Some reptiles, which I'm okay with, I could do snakes.
00:15
But then they gave me some dead fish.
00:17
Those cats was a little too big and too powerful for me.
00:22
And it was hanging over me,
00:23
and it was still dripping with the blood and the smell
00:26
and that was so disgusting.
00:28
You know you have to be sexy, holding two cheetahs.
00:32
Oh yeah, the other day I was actually in a harness.
00:37
I think it's really funny when they're like,
00:39
jump, or smile, or laugh, you know,
00:41
cause I'm really bad at laughing on cue or smiling on cue.
00:44
It was fun, it hurt a little bit actually,
00:46
I'm still a little bit sore from it,
00:47
but it was a great experience.
00:49
I had to shoot with crocodile once.
00:51
Oh I had, what are they called, sand fleas, once.
00:58
I never have those weird photo shoots
01:00
(laughing) I don't know.
01:02
They're like the bedbugs of the water,
01:03
and those bites, it was six months before they went away.
01:07
You cannot say no because you have to be professional,
01:10
any location you can handle it,
01:12
and you have to do it for, you know, beautiful picture.
