Brooklyn was one of the stars that participated in the 24 Hour Plays: Los Angeles Benefit on June 16 in Santa Monica, CA. She gathered with 23 other actors, six writers and directors at Santa Monica’s Broad Stage theater on Friday night to brainstorm ideas for her impromptu performance. After the plays were finished, she and her cast members had 12 hours to rehearse before appearing onstage on Saturday evening. The event raised funds for Urban Arts Partnership, a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing the intellectual, social and artistic development of underserved public school students through arts-integrated education programs.
In What to Expect When You’re Expecting, former Sports Illustrated model Brooklyn Decker plays Skyler – the much-younger wife of racing legend Ramsey Cooper (Dennis Quaid) – who are over-the-moon to find out they’re expecting. Decker talks wearing the prosthetic baby bump, working with Dennis Quaid and making the transition from model to actress.
Talk about your experience with the fake mummy-belly, please.
What’s funny is that few of the cast members had gone through pregnancy. Well, Jennifer (Lopez), but other than her, none of the other girls had gone through the process of giving birth. It’s surprising how you feel when you have the prosthetic on. You become maternal. It’s weird. As a woman, all of a sudden, you have this instinct that comes out. I found myself protecting the belly as I was walking around – and its rubber. I’m holding my lower back! People would hit it and I’d be very protective of it, like, ‘No, no. don’t touch my belly.’ I was very careful with it. It’s funny. I think as a female, you kind of naturally fall into it. Your maternal instincts come out, even if it is a prosthetic.
How about clothing. Was it difficult to wear heels?
I was forced to. (laughing) But absolutely. You’re front heavy so you find yourself waddling a little. That was something we all had to practice quite a bit. We had a midwife on set that would teach us how to properly waddle for our pregnancy, which made wearing heels really interesting. But it came quite naturally.
Brooklyn joined the PlayStation Network at E3 to preview PlayStation’s new Sports Champions 2 game on June 5 in Los Angeles. Brooklyn, outfitted in an Isabel Marant dress with Stella McCartney shoes, signed autographs and posed for photos with fans before hitting the boxing ring for a round on PlayStation’s new title. Take a look at some pictures from the event!
Brooklyn is featured in the July 2012 issue of Men’s Health magazine. The model/actress dons a Lauren Moffatt tank, Vix bikini bottom, Helen Ficalora necklace and a Bing Bang bracelet for the sporty Jeff Lipsky shot column photo taken at Barton Creek Resort in Austin, Texas.

When Andy Roddick married Brooklyn Decker in 2009, the tennis star bought himself a second wedding band. It was a backup, he said: He’d be taking the ring off so often for workouts and practices that it would be only a matter of time before he lost it. She understood. No problem. Honest.
“Well,” Brooklyn says, “I get home from a trip and his ring is unusually shiny—like, ringing out. Really, really shiny. And I knew he’d already been interchanging his two rings, so both were dim. This one is blinding me in the face. This isn’t ring one or two. This is a third ring.”
Brooklyn called her husband on it. He sheepishly admitted to losing both rings, a fact he’d intended to keep secret. “He tries not to tell me whenever he loses anything,” she says. This is a habit she’s trying to break him of—not the habit of losing things, necessarily, but the failure to fess up. “Come clean,” she says. “Guys should definitely come clean.”
Brooklyn attended the Coca-Cola 600 Race on May 27 in Concord, N.C. Despite being a North Carolina native, it was Brooklyn’s first NASCAR race and she spent the afternoon before giving the command hanging with Danica Patrick, and taking a pace car ride around Charlotte Motor Speedway as a guest of the race’s sponsor.
Patrick and Decker, the 2010 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover model, first met when Patrick posed for the 2008 Swimsuit issue. That appearance, plus Patrick’s multitude of GoDaddy ads and other endorsements, have made her the transcendent (and polarizing) figure that she is. On Sunday, Decker said that she respected Patrick’s cross-market appeal.
“So the fact that she can transcend demographics and fans and people who aren’t maybe a fan of the sport — who are just a fan of her — I think she brings people to the sport and I think if anything that shows her strength in the sport,” Decker said.
“A, I think the fact that she’s a woman and B, the fact that she uses (status as a public figure) to be a woman, she isn’t shying away from that and I think that’s really impressive. And I think the attention that she’s brought to the sport and to herself as an idol and as a driver, I think it’s to be respected.”
Decker also said that she’d pick Patrick to be her hypothetical getaway driver, because while she may be a huge name, she also has the ability to blend in.
“I would say Danica, A because I know her and I feel like we could have some of that — we could make hand signals and know what we’re talking about,” Decker said. “And also I think she could be a little bit — you could put a baseball cap on her and people would just think she’s just a college student walking around. We could hide easily.” – Source
Actress Brooklyn Decker stars in the movie “What To Expect When You’re Expecting.” Model Brooklyn Decker has starred in the magazine Sports Illustrated. Wife Brooklyn Decker stars as Mrs. Andy Roddick and lives in Brooklyn. Lately that name Brooklyn’s dropped from more mouths than Marty Markowitz’s.
About this movie: “I play a Southern trophy wife who is very kept. And pregnant. I had to go for belly fittings. They put glue all over my stomach then stretched out the prosthesis for the appropriate time — six months, nine months. There are weights in it so you waddle correctly.
“A midwife was on the set daily to teach my appropriate waddling in 6- inch heels. One thing you learn is it takes longer to sit down.
“We filmed in Atlanta, where my husband grew up. Atlanta has great tax breaks. They’re doing 28 productions.”
Very interesting. More interesting’s how she got from cover girl to movie star.
“I’ve taken acting lessons for some time. I’m lucky. I’ve done three movies. But nobody sees my two years of failed auditions. Lots of rejection — and I’m still trying. When nobody knew my name or who I was, there were a few guest shots but dozens of TV shows and pilots I didn’t get. I’m used to the word ‘no.’ ”
OK. To the face. And that body.
“Trust me, the face is not the same as it was. I see the difference. I’m 25. Two years, and it’ll catch up to me. As to food, I eat what I like. Sweets. Candy. I enjoy that and can’t starve myself. I love camping, hiking. As a teenager, my mom started me lifting weights. She thought it’s a great idea to protect my bones.
“My skin I wash with Cetaphil. I have a glow, but it’s good makeup. I cover up spots. Jeez, I’m not all that great in person . . . And seeing myself all blown up on-screen? Times a million enlarged? My face looks like it’s been PhotoShopped. It’s unnerving.
“I’d never want my child to be a model. Before modeling I didn’t even have a passport, so in truth that’s helped me, but it’s a not fair industry. It’s hard work, which does not often equate to success.”
While promoting ‘Battleship’, Brooklyn appeared on Conan O’Brien where she discussed Fifty Shades Of Grey and Peter Berg’s directing techniques. Check out clips from the show below!
Brooklyn told O’Brien she was carded at an airport bookstore (eager readers must be at least 18 to enjoy their copy). “There’s no way I would have my 18-year-old child reading this book,” Brooklyn said, adding that she gave into the hype and cracked up her Twilight porn. ”I’m reading it, and it was really inappropriate. It talks about butt clamps. Have you ever heard of that?” she asked O’Brien.
“Whats’ going on in this book? I must read it!” O’Brien said.
Brooklyn posed in a variety of summery outfits at her shoot for June issue of Vanity Fair. See the photos below!
Here’s what Brooklyn had to share with the magazine:
SO, HOW DOES A SOUTHERN GIRL END UP WITH A NAME LIKE THAT? “I’m named after a horse. My mom’s best friend had a horse named Brooke, so my dad suggested ‘Brooklyn’ as a more formal version, and it just stuck—and now I live in Brooklyn part-time, so go figure.”
LEARNING CURVE: Believe it or not, Decker’s voluptuous build wasn’t in demand when she started modeling. “There were countless jobs I didn’t get because of my figure. I wasn’t that successful as a model, ever. I just had a few clients that really embraced my curves.”
INTO THE UNKNOWN: At the height of her modeling career, Decker decided to walk away from it. “The Sports Illustrated cover was the last thing I shot. That week, I told my agent, ‘You know what, I really …I don’t want to be a model anymore. I really want to do movies.’ And I think he wanted to wring my neck at the moment.” Her acting career has blossomed, with two films, Battleship and What to Expect When You’re Expecting, due out on the same day, May 18.
LONG-TERM PLANS: Decker married tennis star Andy Roddick in 2009. “I think that I’d like to try to be a superwoman and have kids and work, so we’ll see if I can actually accomplish that. But, if we’re talking dream scenario, that would probably be it.” If anyone knows about living the dream, she does.
