I get a lot of scripts sent to me,
00:04
and I have acting management.
00:08
But I'm very picky about the parts that I read for.
00:11
I feel like if I'm going to audition for a movie,
00:16
then it's genuinely a part that I really want to play.
00:19
So there's been a couple that I've gotten really into,
00:21
and gotten pretty far in the process.
00:25
And I think a bit thing about acting
00:28
is obviously not getting the parts
00:30
and, you know, working through that.
00:30
But that's why I think it's important
00:33
with my really busy modeling schedule,
00:35
to only choose parts that I can get really into,
00:37
because then I can take the time
00:39
to learn about the character, and go through it that way.
00:42
But the ones that I always pass on
00:46
are like the dumb models, I will never play that.
00:51
It's just like so cliche to me.
00:54
But I think today was fun because
00:57
I don't think it was the dumb model,
01:00
I think it was just like, you know,
01:02
getting to I guess laugh at the elephant in the room,
01:11
and poke fun at it.
01:13
I think everyone in fashion is really gonna like this video.
01:18
Well, I think it's very rare that we can connect
01:21
comedy with fashion, so like when I came in today,
01:27
I was told that I was doing a runway tutorial,
01:31
which I was, like, OK, I'm literally the last person
01:33
in the world that should be giving a runway tutorial.
01:36
Like if I'm in a show, it's usually
01:38
like, you know, I can fill out the clothes,
01:42
or because I fit the theme of the show, or whatever it is.
01:46
So when I heard that it was going to be funny
01:50
and we could kind of make fun of our world in a way,
01:54
I think like that's what made me so excited
01:57
and it was the best day.
01:58
But yeah, I think it's always a good thing
02:02
to laugh at yourself a bit.
02:04
One of my good friends, Carla Delevingne,
02:08
you know, has been working on a lot of acting gigs recently
02:14
and I just saw her film, Face of an Angel,
02:19
where I thought genuinely that she was,
02:23
had the best performance in the movie.
02:27
Carla's such a great personality
02:29
and I think that she's gonna be really good
02:32
at becoming a lot of different characters,
02:34
and I'm really excited to see all of her stuff
02:36
'cause she's my friend.
