Australian singer and model Sophie Monk has revealed how she tries to look at glamour modelling as if it is just an acting job. Sophie claims that she never liked doing the sexy photo shoots, as she felt it did not show who she really was but now she has learnt to go with the flow and tries to bring something new to every shoot.
Monk explained, "For many women out there I can understand that the thought of posing in a bikini before a photographic crew for hours on end would be their idea of a living nightmare. These days I try to think of it as just another acting role. When I first started out, I remember turning down a cover for FHM and hating shooting anything in bikinis because it felt like it was discriminating and not a reflection of who I really was.”
She added, “I've always felt my sense of humour was more important than how I look in a bikini top. Funny enough it seems the men's magazine game begged to differ and the offers kept rolling in. Soon the anxiety went out the window. My take on shooting for men's magazines is that I love entertaining people and being creative, so I approach every shoot wanting to bring something fresh.”
Sophie concluded, “The trick is to use your assets without becoming a stuck-up diva. The down side of Hollywood is, of course, that you are always competing in the beauty Olympics, whether you like it or not. I never imagined putting emphasis on image or weight, but you soon realise it comes with the game." Sophie Monk recently admitted that she avoids dating men from L.A.
