Brooklyn Decker talks auditioning for 'The Hunger Games'

By Danielle Fredette,

Brooklyn Decker is best known for being a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model, even scoring the cover of the 2010 edition, but now says that her modeling days are behind her.

The 25-year old told omg!, “I haven’t done any modeling in two years. If I were to do it again, it would be with [Sports Illustrated], but I don’t see that happening. The traveling is wonderful and the people are wonderful, but without sounding horrible, with modeling you don’t feel as stimulated as you do when you get to really study something [like acting]. The challenges are different, so I definitely prefer it.”

Decker had a cameo on New Girl earlier this year, as well as a starring role in Battleship, which did poorly at the box office.

However, she is still on the hunt for the perfect role. “I auditioned for Hunger Games,” she told omg!. “Not for the Katniss, but for a character in the second book that I loved. I read the books in three days, and cried. I worshiped the books. I was like, ‘I wanna be in the movie, I wanna do it.’”

Although she didn't get the part, she is still a big fan and plans to see the movie. “I was bummed, but it is not going to stop me from seeing it on opening night."

Decker doesn't plan on giving up her acting dreams anything soon, stating, “It happens all the time. I am learning that in this business, you can have a job, but things can fall through. It is a constantly evolving business.”
