Waiting in the changing room is Cora Skinner. Out of wardrobe and back in a slinky dress that barely passes for "street" clothes, the tall 5'9" beauty is as stunning now as she was in front of the camera. Even with a burgeoning career in Hollywood, we managed to wrest a few minutes of her time to talk about breasts (chicken), football (lingerie), butts (girls), red roadsters (S2000) and why even the biggest schmuck ought to go out and buy some Axe body spray (me).
Import Tuner: So how long have you been modeling?
Cora Skinner: For about three years.
2NR: Was it a lifelong dream or did you just stumble into it like a drunken man on stilts?
CS: I was working at a Hooters restaurant while I was going to college and they entered me in the Miss Hooters International Pageant. It was really silly, but I ended up placing Top 10 and doing an interview on Fox Sports.
2NR: International pageant? Didn't realize Hooters was so globally conscious in bringing awareness to their big, juicy breasts. Personally, I prefer KFC-Colonel Sanders' 11 herbs and spices really do the trick. But enough about my breast fetishes, where did your newfound fame take you next?
CS: [Uncomfortable pause] Uh, the Lingerie Bowl. It's girls playing football in their lingerie during the Superbowl halftime.
2NR: So do you prefer touch or full-on tackle in the bedroom?
CS: Full-on tackle. [Laughs]
2NR: A girl who plays football both in and out of the bedroom, you're every man's dream. Speaking of men, what do you look for in a guy?
CS: I like guys who are just themselves and don't try too hard to impress. I like laidback, funny men who can goof-off and have fun doing anything.
2NR: A red convertible like our cover car: Way too metro or straight up hetero?
CS: A little too metro for a man, but a hot blonde would look good driving it.
2NR: Blondes? What about brunettes like you?
CS: That works, too. Why, are you offering me the car? 'Cause I'll take it!
2NR: I have a white hardtop if you're interested. Speaking of tops, hard or soft?
2NR: Me too! Uh, anyway, so are you a Hollywood or a stay-in-your-'hood kind of girl?
CS: Well my 'hood is Hollywood, so I guess I like to do both.
2NR: OK, that totally ruined my thought-out, semi-witty question, but whatever. To rephrase, for a Hollywood resident like yourself, are you a party girl or a stay-at-home chick?
CS: I guess I'm a party girl. I'm too ADD to stay at home for long.
2NR: So, let's say hypothetically, I came up to you and I was feeling extra courageous-in other words very drunk-what would I be ordering you at the bar?
CS: Any straight up shot or a vodka soda.
2NR: Vodka shots? Gangsta! Worse pickup line?
CS: They're all bad! How do I choose just one!
2NR: So when you're not getting crappy pickup lines, what do you do?
CS: I watch TV. I'm obsessed with The Office.
2NR: The Office rocks, if you had to pick between Michael, Dwight or Jim, who would it be?
CS: Dwight. At the very least, I'd be entertained by the things that come out of his mouth! He is so hilarious.
2NR: Dwight? Eww. Would you take him home to meet Mom, though?
CS: No, I guess not; we'd have to elope.
2NR: Which means you'd be willing to consummate the marriage. Double ewww.
2NR: Other than weirdos, what else are you into?
CS: [Laughs] I love to dance, going to the beach, shopping, and oddly, I like cleaning. Not the kitchen though, nor the bathroom.
2NR: Bathroom I understand, but why not the kitchen?
CS: I've always had this weird thing about leftover food. It grosses me out.
2NR: Now the whole Dwight thing completely makes sense. Do you cook?
CS: I know how to, but I just don't have the patience to spend 40 minutes cooking for a 10-minute meal.
2NR: That's why God invented Ramen! On an entirely different non-food note, what's your favorite part of your body?
CS: My legs, I guess.
2NR: On other girls?
CS: A good butt is hard to find, so I appreciate it when I see one.
2NR: Examples, please.
CS: Jessica Alba, Kylie Minogue and Carmen Electra.
2NR: I'll take Jessica. Or Kylie. Who am I kidding, I'd take two bowls of firm Jell-O. Yum. Favorite food?
CS: I love Italian food.
2NR: If you won the SuperLotto, the first three things you'd buy?
CS: One of those Bengal cats-so I could walk it on Sunset and scare people-a ranch in Wyoming and then the whole Guess store.
2NR: I heard you were on the Emmys, how was that?
CS: It was so cool! It was crazy to be onstage and in front of an audience like that. I've never seen so many celebrities in my life!
2NR: Meet anyone drool worthy?
CS: Dwight from The Office. [Laughs]
2NR: Triple eww.
CS: [Laughs] I was so excited to meet Steve Carell and Steven Colbert, though. That made my night.
2NR: Off-camera did you trip?
2NR: No, really. We won't tell a single soul.
2NR: Any other TV appearances?
CS: I've done a lot of feature work on shows like Las Vegas, Entourage, and Shark and I recently did a live skit on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, which was really cool 'cause it was my first speaking role.
2NR: What was it?
CS: We did a live commercial for Axe body spray. This other girl and I were dissing the announcer until he sprayed himself with Axe, and then we couldn't keep our hands off him.
2NR: So does Axe work or not?
CS: Actually it really does! Its one of my favs!
2NR: OK, so me with Axe on or Dwight?
CS: You with Axe on. [Laughs]
2NR: Liar, but, yay!
