Our email correspondence with the super-hot lawyer turned Playboy model, Oona O’Connell, continues.
A brief question-and-answer session, plus an uncropped version of this Oonalicious photo, after the jump.
In a series of emails, we posed various questions to lawyer-slash-model Oona O’Connell. We then rearranged the material into this mini-interview. The order of questions has been altered, but the language is directly quoted from the email messages.
You mentioned you graduated early [from the University of Miami School of Law]. Did you take the bar? If so, which one?
Graduated December 2006, sitting for the Florida bar in July 2007. Skipped the February bar as winter is the busy season in modeling.
Are you modeling full-time now?
I am modeling full time now, and acting too, although I hate to say it because it sounds like such a cliche!!! In fact, I have my first lines on a TV show airing tomorrow night, on the series premiere of Burn Notice.
Do you get bored during long photo shoots? You’re obviously a very intelligent person. Do you get mentally restless when your picture is being taken for hours on end?
No, I never get bored during photo shoots — it’s such hard work!!! You have to be very aware of your body, the space you occupy, and the shapes and lines you can create that are interesting and pleasing to the eye. Many poses that look nice in real life look super strange on film. Often poses are extremely uncomfortable and you hold them for hours on end.
Also, you usually have to keep your eyes very engaged with the lens of the camera and ultimately the viewer of the picture. Otherwise, there is a tangible disconnect, and the picture doesn’t speak to people.
Plus, you meet such interesting, artistic people — photographers, makeup artists, photo editors… It’s fantastic.
Most definitely! At any rate, it sure beats document review.
