Playboy.com: What do you love about nude modeling?
What I love most about nude modeling is that it’s very freeing and feels natural, comfortable, and I get to show a side of me few people get to see.
Playboy.com: What is your favorite piece of lingerie?
A sexy little black apron. I used to cook for my ex in it.
Playboy.com: Which three men do you think embody the Playboy brand in 2012?
Obviously Hugh Hefner, Guy Ritchie and Ryan Gosling.
Playboy.com: What do you do when you’re not modeling?
I live in Dallas and work at a small marketing firm. I also love to cook for people; it’s addictive and I love having people over and entertaining. Cooking is such a big thing in my family.
Playboy.com: What is the sexiest meal for a first date?
I don’t know about the meal, but it has to have wine. I’m an Italian girl at heart, so I guess I’d have to say a pasta dinner.
Playboy.com: Do you have a signature dish?
I don’t want to brag, but I can make really good lasagna. I know I’ve unintentionally seduced men with my cooking.
Playboy.com: What do you slip on when you want to feel sexy?
A glass of Cabernet Sauvignon.
Playboy.com: What’s your idea of a perfect breakfast in bed?
It would definitely have to start with mimosas; nothing like a good mimosa in the morning. I also love fresh fruit.
Playboy.com: Name one woman you’d love to see pose for Playboy that hasn’t.
Kirsten Dunst. I think she’s absolutely gorgeous.
Playboy.com: If you could go on a date with one person, dead or alive, who would it be?
*Playboy.com: Tell us about your best date ever. *
My best date was when my boyfriend at the time took me to a beach and packed a little picnic lunch, on a Saturday in the spring. It was absolutely perfect.
Playboy.com: And your worst date ever?
The worst one was when I was taken to Six Flags in Dallas. The guy I went with started throwing up after every roller coaster. I was like, “Let’s just leave. I don’t want to ride any more roller coasters,” but he kept wanting to ride them, so after every roller coaster he kept throwing up. I felt so bad. He didn’t want to stop riding them, though!
Playboy.com: Do you have any bad habits?
I’m a very aggressive driver, and a lot of people don’t know that about me until they get into the car with me.
Playboy.com: Do you collect anything?
I collect records and own over one hundred. I’ve been collecting them since middle school.
Playboy.com: What album puts you in the mood?
Trilogy by The Weeknd. Abel has the sexiest voice!
Playboy.com: What are three albums everyone should own on vinyl?
Being a Dallas girl, everyone should have a ZZ Top album. I also think everyone should have a Police album and a classic album like Frank Sinatra or The Beatles or The Who.
