The beautiful Sarah Stage hails from "The Valley"-the city where Jay Leno gets his checks and the part of the country Nick Cage made famous. Her beauty and stunning body is a deadly duo that dear ol' dad would love. Although we know dad is right most of the time, her personality combos up to fill that trifecta that mom would love. Burbank, posse up cause Sarah Stage is on the map.
2nr: Ready to dance with me Ms. Stage?
Sarah Stage: I am ready to tango. Stage really is my last name.
2nr: What are five things you did before we talked?
SS: Gave my dog a bath, bought my friend a birthday present, I laid out a little bit, went on a casting call and I did a little laundry.
2nr: So you did almost nothing today.
SS: That's not what most people "get" to do.
2nr: Yeah. I'm not really an office person. I love what I do, I guess that's why I've been doing it for so long. I know it doesn't last forever but its so easy and so fun.
2nr: How long have you been modeling and do you remember your first job?
SS: I've been modeling for, gosh, seven years now. I'm starting to feel like an old lady. My first job was a music video for this rock band...but my first big job was for Ocean Pacific.
2nr: I understand that you are totally in love with your dog. Is he anything that you want your man to be like?
SS: Jose is a fat Chihuahua ...
2nr: I loves me a fat Chihuahua.
SS: Me too! But I don't want my man to have any of his traits. My dog is obsessed with food. He's lazy and he befriends everyone-he's an attention whore. I don't want to compete with that. I want my man to be loyal, humble, affectionate and intelligent. Just a good man.
2nr: You tell me that you are an Aries.
SS: We're supposed to be really aggressive. We like to be the leader. And I think that they don't do too well in relationships-but I think that it's really the others that start the fights.
2nr: Did you know that Aries people think that it's the guy's fault when in reality it's their own?
SS: [laughs] Wouldn't that be awesome if that were true?
2nr: When you are out and about. Who is the guy that gets your attention?
SS: Nice eyes, nice smile. There just has to be something about him that is really sexy.
2nr: Some girls get confused with "attractive" and "different".
SS: As long as there is something there that captures your attention it might be enough to think that he's good looking.
2nr: Where does a lazy eye get me?
SS: If I thought it were the eyes that keep me interested then cool. But my friends would ask me, Have you seen his teeth? They're jacked up! But it might just be the eyes that keep me there.
2nr: [long silence] You don't think that the teeth have to look just as good as the eyes?
SS: OK maybe I shouldn't have used the teeth thing, cause if you have gross teeth...
2nr: Yeah. I'll tell you that there is a difference between chewing on steak and gnawing at one.
SS: You're right. Substitute short in place of any teeth references.
2nr: You are out on a night to party. What are you drinking?
SS: I'm drinking a Grey Goose and cranberry with a little lime. Or Patron.
2nr: What drink would you tell a guy to buy for himself if he was bothering you?
SS: An Adios!
2nr: You're an L.A. chick...
SS: [cuts me off] I'm Burbank raised. There's a difference.
2nr: Ouch. Whatever. Note to self: Sarah is sensitive about location.
SS: Out in L.A. there are a lot of people who aren't who they say they are. You need to be careful because people will tell you that they are these hugely successful people but end up just taking advantage of you. I feel sorry for all the girls that move here and fall for it.
2nr: Sounds like you've been bitten a couple times.
SS: No, but there are a lot of guys that think that they can persuade me to date them by throwing around money. It doesn't work with me.
2nr: Are you a girlie-girl or a tomboy?
SS: I'm a little bit of both. If we were about to jump off a cliff I'd be "OK let's go guys. Let's do it! Wait, let's take pictures!" I love traveling and backpacking.
SS: I was on the basketball team in high school. When I was in high school I got in trouble with my dad. He was the basketball coach and they didn't have enough players. He told me either I joined the team or I'm grounded. I still wanted to hang out with my friends and go to parties so even though I didn't have any experience I joined the team. I was not athletic at all. I love watching basketball-but playing it? Yeah. My friends used to go to the games just to laugh at me.
2nr: What's one thing you can't live without.
SS: I love my eyelash curler.
2nr: What is something that you need to have on a weekly basis?
SS: I can't live without hugs. If I can't have that, then I get bratty.
2nr: I hope spooning falls into the "hug" category.
2nr: Every month I need to "blank" to keep my sanity.
SS: Every month I need to go shopping. There is something about shopping that can be very thereputic. I mean, it doesn't have to be Chanel. It could be as simple as going to Target. I like running errands and doing those little things-you make a list and you check it off and then you go do the next one.
2nr: Choose between "broke and super popular" or "rich with no friends".
SS: FUNNY! My friends and I were just talking about this! I would totally choose to be rich. I mean can you imagine going to an event and showing up in your little hooptie? I'd rather be behind the scenes making all the cash.
2nr: It's not too cool to roll up to the club on your bike with a solar powered backpack with a fan that blows in your face.
SS: Wearing your helmet. Pushing it up to coat check for a ticket. Not cool.
2nr: So lets say that you are going out and I've just given you a whopping 50 bucks to last you the whole day. You don't need to buy food because you are bringing a back pack full of bananas and beef jerky. Which friend do you bring and where will you go.
SS: I would pick a friend that worked at a store so that they would get me a good discount. That would make the $50 really more like $90. [pauses] Yes. That's exactly what I'd do.
2nr: What's one thing you'd eat till you're 20 pounds overweight.
2nr: We're talking about the little square cheddar baked pieces of heaven?
SS: Are there any other kinds of heaven? Yes. I love Cheez-Its. When I travel its one of the things I'm sure to pack. At least I didn't say Italian food.
2nr: Ah yes or one of the other top five model foods. Like sushi...Ceasar salads...
SS: Vegetables...Baked chicken...
2nr: Glasses of water and air.
SS: [laughs] Yeah. I just love Cheez-Its. For my shape, maybe the low sodium.
2nr: Your measurements and your pictures expose a very curvy woman.
SS: Kinda like an hourglass wouldn't you say?
2nr: Yes. Some could say that your hips really DON'T lie. What's you're favorite part of your body?
SS: I really like my lips. My lips don't lie.
2nr: If men were to vote on which of your body parts they liked the most what part would win?
SS: Most guys are into a girl's butt. It's butts or boobs. A nice compliment would be if they liked my face.
2nr: I love your face. Have you seen these mags at 7-Eleven that are all about butts?
SS: I know what you're talking about! They are so mesmerizing. I was in the car while my friend was inside. I look up to see him holding up the magazine mouthing, "What IS this??" I was like, I don't know but I like it! Now, I'm always staring at them yelling DAMNNN!!!
2nr: Some of them have enough butt for TWO Sarah Stages. They are in fact so mesmerizing that every time I walk into a 7-Eleven I slap the magazine.
2nr: You say you love every type of music, but let's be realistic. What is the stuff that is you always play?
SS: What I really like to listen to is old soul music like Al Green. I love Lauren Hill...Fiona Apple. I grew on those types of music...like Earth Wind and Fire and for the hippie in me stuff like The Doors and Pink Floyd. But you know when I'm going out I'm listening to hip hop.
2nr: OK. So your fat Chihuahua Jose-who coincidentally is the name of both your gardener and your favorite local taco joint-is eating three of the six CDs in your disc changer. What are the last three CDs.
SS: Dr. Dre's Chronic 2001.
2nr: You're gangster.
SS: Yeah. I am a little bit. I come strapped. Don't touch my Chronic CD. One of the CDs would be The Miseducation of Lauren Hill. The last one would likely be this CD I made called "Traffic Jam".
2nr: Where can we frequent to accidentally bump into you?
SS: I could say a place in L.A. but chances are you'll have better luck at Target in Burbank.
2nr: Any shout-outs?
SS: I really just want to thank my family and friends and my agent.
2nr: No shout to Dre?
SS: Yes and to King and Smooth...and I want to let Dre know that he's in my CD player and that he's always rolling with me!
