WATCH: Behati Prinsloo Talks Acting Vs. Modeling On The Couch
Victoria’s Secret model Behati Prinsloo stopped by The Couch last week touting lots of samples of the lingerie maker’s new line of bras, undies, swimsuits, and perfume, just before she and fellow Angel Miranda Kerr did an appearance at the flagship store in NYC’s Herald Square. She sounded off about the less glamorous aspects of her job — the loneliness of traveling, having to shoot in unpleasant temperatures — and gave a well-practiced spiel about how “comfortable” the new “Fabulous” bra by VS is.
Prinsloo recently appeared in an episode of CBS’s Hawaii Five-0, playing — get this! — a Victoria’s Secret model, who receives a mysteriously threatening letter. And although we’re not sure playing yourself on TV really constitutes serious “acting,” per se, she had nothing but nice things to say about her experience on set. In spite of that, she’s sticking with modeling for now, as she told the hosts:
“I think if the opportunity comes up, I’ll definitely give it a go. It’s not something i’m pursuing at the moment… But it’s — it was just a fun thing that kind of came up, and I had the time, and it was Hawaii! I couldn’t say no.”
She also handled cohost John Elliott’s continued mispronunciation of her name with all the impressive grace that someone who has made it through life with the handle “Behati” has spent years cultivating… And didn’t blink an eye when he awkwardly sprayed the perfume sample in his mouth. But we suppose she’s used to guys losing their motor skills around her.
