Brooklyn Decker is many things. Actress who’s career is seeing a meteoritic rise. Former Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue cover model. Wife of a guy who can hit tennis balls harder than almost anyone ever. Master of the GIF. One thing she isn’t… a fan of smooching a guy with stubble. We interviewed Brooklyn, who is representing Gillette’s Kiss & Tell campaign, about stubble, the future Sports Illustrated Swimsuit and Al Borland.

Who do you think is most likely to land the 2014 SI Swimsuit cover.. Kate Bock, Nina Agdal, Chrissy Teigen, or Brooklyn Decker?

You can never know, it’s all based on the shoots and the photos that come out of them. I can definitely say it won’t be me, but fingers crossed for my good friend Chrissy!

Tell us about what you are working on with Gillette for spring break?

This Spring Break I’m spreading the message that girls prefer a clean shaven face, 85% in fact, so I’m trying to help you guys get a little lovin.

Do you prefer smooth shaven or with some stubble?

I love the look of stubble, but hate the feel. No girl wants a rug burn on her face from smooching a guy.

I haven’t fasted in a while and I haven’t eaten fast food either (unless you consider Chipotle fast food, in which case I got the Vegetarian Burrito Bowl with extra guacamole).

Favorite movie all time?

There’s way too many to pick from, but I love Forrest Gump. Soundtrack, Jenny, Bubba, it’s all too much in the best way possible.

Favorite movie quote?

“You can sit here if you want”- Jenny Gump… simple, but my mom always told me to be like that when I was growing up (minus the adult Jenny tripping on acid part)

Kindle or book?

There’s nothing like a nice paperback, though I read all my scripts on my iPad.

Favorite bar/restaurant in NYC?

I hung out the bar backstage of Watch What Happens Live on Bravo…that was interesting.

Do you cook? What is a simple meal you know how to make?

I do cook, though not quite a 5 star chef yet. I’ve gotten very good at cooking chicken in lots of ways and now I’m working on baking.
