Such an absolute honor to have you on Playboy! Talk to us about your career and what made you get into the industry? Thank you! It’s also an honor for me to be on the cover of one of the biggest men’s magazines in the world. Well, I’m an actress, singer, songwriter and screenwriter. Since I was a teenager I study theater, I’m graduated in dramaturgy in Los Angeles and Rio de Janeiro. I acted in plays in Brazil, with one of the greatest playwrights in the country. I already had an international career as a model, I walked the catwalks all over the world, but when I was invited to be one of the Amazons in the movie “Wonder Woman” in Hollywood, my international career as an actress took off and then I keep working.
What is your favorite thing to do? I love to produce, create, travel, take care of myself. I fully dedicate myself to my career, so I’m always producing, studying, making it happen and that’s what I love.
What does it mean for you to be seen as a strong, intelligent, ambitious woman? It means the world to me. In a society marked by so much womens oppression, a strong, intelligent, ambitious and independent woman is full of meaning. It means many battles won, it means giving up so many other things, always reaffirming myself and that is not so peaceful for a woman. We ended up being a mirror to each other, a reference to female strength and empowerment and that makes it worth a lot.
What would you say makes you stand out in the industry? I value who I am, what I do and everything I build and so I can say with certainty, among other things, that I am a woman owner of myself, my work and my positions. I’m proud of these attributes and I believe that they make me stand out. My outgoing way and my sense of humor makes a difference too.
What puts the biggest smile on your face? I love it when things are working out, when my work is appreciated, when I have positive results from that.
What are some of your biggest passions? I love to live! I’m in love with life. All that we can enjoy in life, have enriching experiences, love, be loved, be in contact with nature, with people I love, be able to do what I like, be who I am. All of this inspires me to always want more from life, and that is what motivates me, my passion for living.
3 ultimate deal breakers when it comes to men? Failing with care and respect is unacceptable, but that’s for any relationship. Not understanding my work, my convictions and my free way of being. Not being fragrant (laughs).
What are some of the things that attract you to a man? A beautiful smile and a penetrating eye contact gets me. A man with initiative, who is willing to conquer and seduce me, attracts me. Interesting men with their own lifestyle are pretty attractive too.
What is the most daring thing you have ever done? Getting naked in the snow? Haha, it’s something really bold to me. And I loved it!
What is the best way to approach you as an admirer? Showing yourself interested and interesting is an aphrodisiac for me. Have a good chat and good energy.
