People always ask me who does my lips. I say my mom did them. They're real.
It's hard to go with a trend. As soon as it's out, everyone picks it up. It's important to stay true to yourself. Have fun with fashion instead of letting it dictate.
I really wanted to go to the Olympics, but everyone wanted me to model for them, so I said what the hell, why not!
Coming from a barely clothed childhood as a swimmer makes me really comfortable with my body.
You really don't do anything else in your life; it's a very little bubble that you grow up in. And you have to live in that bubble because of the intensity of the sport.
I kept my clothes on. I borrowed money.
Yeah, I've had an odd youth, But I wouldn't know the difference if I'd lived it any other way. And I wouldn't change any of it because I quite like what I'm doing.
I thought, 'If I'm going to die, I'm going to videotape it.' So I got out my little video recorder and was taping goodbyes to my family.
I love the work, I love being in front of the camera and working with actors and directors and creating something. For me, it's like learning everyday.
Because I was a champion swimmer in Canada, they're always trying to get me in the water in movies! I've drawn the line now with this film. No more water!
I've been really lucky. When I decided to go to LA I said I was going to quit modelling and just go and see how I do. In the first two weeks I got three movies. I was so excited I had all my furniture shipped out from New York.
I think acting is definitely the most fulfilling, because it's the most challenging in my mind.
I wanted to build up a little nest egg and go back to L.A. and choose roles that I wanted to do instead of roles that I had to do to pay the bills.
I really appreciate the sport background because the structure and the discipline that that gives a person is incredible, and it just carries with you wherever you go.
