I’m named after a horse. My mom’s best friend had a horse named Brooke so my dad suggested ‘Brooklyn’ as a more formal version and it just stuck – and now I live in Brooklyn part-time so go figure.
The ‘Sports Illustrated’ cover was the last thing I shot. That week I told my agent ‘You know what I really… I don’t want to be a model anymore. I really want to do movies.’ And I think he wanted to wring my neck at the moment.
I loved the travel but I didn’t love the work. I mean come on modelling is only so stimulating!
