No, it’s a great thing, judging from her new spread in Esquire magazine. Decker just doesn’t have a bad angle in these sexy photos, although even Brooklyn says her whirlwind rise is taking her by storm as well.
Although she’s starring with A-Listers, including Adam Sandler, in her new film, she’s not ready to call herself an actress just yet.

“I’m a model. I’m not sure what I bring to the table…I can’t say ‘actress’ unless someone says I’m halfway decent at it,” she tells the magazine.
But Decker does have a claim to fame besides her killer body. She just may hold the secret to getting a date with a supermodel.
“Men need to learn to put everything on the table,” Decker said. “Just put everything on the table. And when it comes to the game playing, enough.”
But that’s easier said than done. Most 20-something men still have some growing up to do. “In their twenties men just want, want, want, want, want,” she said.
“Don’t make everybody deal with your want all the time. It gets so old. You know?”
Decker, now 23, married tennis pro Andy Roddick, 28, in April 2009. He took the direct approach. After seeing her, he contacted her and said he wanted to meet her.
As for her stunning, all-American looks, Decker says it wasn’t always that way.
“When I was younger, I was insecure about being gangly and having no shape,” Decker tells the February 2011 issue of Self. “People made fun of me and called me a boy!
“I remember praying for boobs and a butt. Luckily, I grew into myself and got curves, but when I was first modeling, I wished for that boyish Gisele [Bundchen] body again!”
“When I moved to New York, I was always with other aspiring models,” says Brooklyn. “There were bingers and purgers, and everyone watched each other eat. It freaked me out.
“I did juice fasts and crazy diets and ended up gaining weight. My father did an intervention and got me to stop obsessing about everyone else and wrecking my body.”
Now her health comes first.
“Eating is more fulfilling if you talk about what you should eat rather than what you shouldn’t,” says the self-confessed candy addict.
“Instead of worrying about what foods might have too much fat or sugar, think, Oh, I should eat these blueberries for the antioxidants.”
“Mind/body wellness is incredibly important to me,” she says. “Not only is my career based on it, but it really is important in my day-to-day life.”
Esquire’s February issue will hit stands on Tuesday. Check out her photos by Yu Tsai.
