OneModelPlace.com models often aspire to become actresses on the big screen as well. One surefire way to get noticed by Hollywood is to be chosen as the covergirl for the annual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
Now that Irina Shayk has landed the coveted spot on this year’s swimwear-themed magazine cover, a feature film role is likely to follow. Read about how past models fared on the big screen in an online article and slideshow compiled by Entertainment Weekly’s Jeff Labrecque, and see if you can identify the film debuts of past SI supermodels such as Cindy, Elle, Paulina, Naomi, and Tyra.
Brooklyn Decker in “Just Go With It” is one recent example. According to Labrecque, last year’s Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue cover model “makes her big-screen debut as the gorgeous gal whom Adam Sandler’s horndog tries to trick into thinking that he’s getting a divorce from his made-up first wife. (It’s complicated.) Once Jennifer Aniston was cast as the fake-wife, there were only a few women on the face of the earth who could make Aniston appear schlumpy.“
