ON GETTING INTO THE INDUSTRY
at the younger women today, do you want to give them any advice as
far as coming into the business?
want to say to every young girl that comes to L.A., especially if
she's nice: it's a difficult town. It's very easy to deviate from
your set path and your goals that you have for yourself when you get
there. It's very easy to be swept away and unfortunately, for the
most part, those things that you're swept away by are not for the
betterment of you.
you give this advice to some of the girls that come to you?
couple of girls. I couldn't help myself.
I loved them and I thought they were great. I was seeing where they
were headed and once you're here a couple of years you see the
success stories. You see the women that come out, they've got a
talent whether it's acting or modeling or whatever that and they've
got to get to a certain area and they're here to work and they do
well. It's really fun to watch them climb up and get great jobs and
make a great career. Then you see other girls who have a lot of
potential and get caught up in other things. Maybe it's a rich man
who's going to take her away from everything. You see them a few
years later and they're gone. They're back home in Kansas or wherever
they were from. It's always the big fish in the little ponds of the
world that end up in one place.
there some generalization you can make about models?
normally don't get anything! (Both laughing) You know, I've been
really lucky. The girls we've worked with are great, but we pick the
girls we work with so I think I've definitely tailored the people
that we shoot. I just don't have time in my life for people that have
no purpose, and a lot of the models that I've run across in the last
six years really don't. They don't know where they're going, they
don't have a goal, a purpose or a plan.
you made anyone a star from your website?
are a couple of people that had newer sites or maybe didn't have a
site when we shot them and they're now doing really well. We get a
lot of traffic to the site so the girls definitely benefit from that
traffic. We do a rotating "Girlfriend of the Week" on the
front page so each week one girl gets featured on the front page with
a direct link to their site. I've gotten a lot of great feedback from
that. The girls get a lot of traffic. It really helps the new
discoveries and the people that may be struggling to make a name for themselves.
have six Yahoo! fan clubs and yet you only respond on one. Why is that?
have one official Yahoo! fan club. I have so much work between
acting, modeling, running the web site and we also run another girl's
web site, which you just featured, Kaila Yu.
a partner in her site. My partner and I run her web site. There's so
much to do and I really want to keep in touch with all of the fans
that are on the Yahoo! club so what we did is we put up one official
Yahoo! fan club. People know that if they leave me a message there
you going to be watching the Presidential debates this week?
yeah! I watched the ones before too.
said before that you'll be voting for Bush. Your mind is 100% made
up. These debates aren't going to help you shape your opinion?
have to make your pros and cons list. Overall no matter if there may
be a few issues where I'm in agreement with Gore, the Bush camp has
you think that would surprise your fans in the Yahoo! message boards?
funny, I had a chat last week and someone asked and I said Bush.
There were 12 people in the room at the time and nine of the 12 were
in agreement. I'm not real political (laughing) so I try to steer
clear for the most part from those questions. Every once in a while
if I get asked that I'll answer, but I don't make it a habit.
ANSWERS RANDOM QUESTIONS
Hugh Heffner a good kisser?
have no idea! (laughing)
just heard a pick-up line. "Fuck me if I'm wrong, but haven't
we met somewhere before?"
someone said that to you would you admire him for his creativity or
would you slap him silly?
probably wouldn't slap him silly because anyone who has the balls to
actually voice that out loud is probably pretty funny.
Laws of Success. I think trying to fit yourself as far as the outer
shell goes is not going to help build confidence. I really think it
comes from the inside. Maybe taking two hours of personal time and
reading a short book like that will get her grounded and make her see
how beautiful she really is.
say my girlfriend and I are going to a wedding and she says she
can't find a dress that will look good on her. I think it all looks
great on her because she's got a great body. What do you say to a
woman who feels insecure about her body even though she looks good?
doesn't really matter how you look to other people if you're not
looking good to yourself. I would say to go sit somewhere by yourself
and grab a Deepak Chopra book. My favorite book by him is The Seven
you wear a watch?
I normally tell time from my cell phone which is always on and
usually stuck to my ear.
you worried about radiation to your brain?
I've got enough things to worry about. I'll stick that one on the
Would you mind being cloned?
wouldn't mind being cloned but I would like for the clone to have
one flaw that I don't have just so that I would always know that I
was a wee bit superior.
a little dumber?
little SOMETHING (laughing). I wouldn't want to compete with myself.
are a lot of weird lawsuits out there. Have you ever been involved
in a strange lawsuit either someone suing you or you suing someone
over something strange?
I haven't. The one thing my partner and I have going for us is we
both believe in astrology (laughing). We had an astrologer tell us
separately on two different occasions to really pay attention to
contracts. They said that someone was going to try to slide something
by. We've really been careful and I don't sign things on the spur of
the moment so I feel lucky.
did you get into astrology?
ago. I have a huge library behind me right now. I have a big
bookcase and I'm very compulsive so everything is separated into
categories. I have one whole shelf that is astrology.. greek
mythology... numerology... palmistry... massage... anything to do
with the spirits. All of my inspirational books and my Deepok Chopra
books, all of those are there. The Celestine Prophecy is another favorite.
your husband ever read any of these with you?
bring them upstairs, but he's not really into astrology. I think a
lot of us aren't, but he's entertained by it.
is your favorite book?
think The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success is my favorite. I read a
lot though so it changes weekly. (laughing)
time in Canada must have made you popular. To Canadian Amazon.com
users, your video 'Return to Savage Beach' a bigger seller than
'Mary, the Mother of God'. Why?
don't have an answer to that. (laughing)
you have a home in Canada and where you just buy a whole bunch of
them and send them to yourself?
buying them back for myself! (laughing) No, I wouldn't do that.
you sell the videos out of the trunk of your car?
I never have anything on me. People always ask for an 8 x 10 or
something and I never carry anything on me.
would it take for an average guy to date a Playboy Playmate?
be real and don't mention the fact that she's a Playmate, whatever
you do! (laughing) Dwelling on that does not get you anywhere.
if I pulled out her 8 x 10 and said, "Can you sign this?"
that wouldn't go far?
when they say, "Your centerfold was my favorite!" then you
feel like you're dating a fan (laughing). It's a little strange. Just
be your own person because the girls are all just real people too.
We've just had an unusual fifteen minutes in the sun. And where they
take it from there... you know... to each their own.
