Sophie Monk

Do you have any advice for American travelers looking to pick up Australian women?
Definitely not “I work for this, I do that.” Girls are not impressed by that stuff. The guy who holds the room around here is the funniest guy. In L.A. people will be giving you their résumés, and I’m like, “I don’t care!” If a guy has you laughing, he’s going to do well.

So guys should work on their knock-knock jokes?
You’ve gotta be pretty witty!

VIDEO: Sophie Monk: Behind The Scenes

Have any favorite jokes?
Oh, no, I’m terrible with jokes, but I know this one: How many blondes does it take to change a light bulb? I don’t even know the answer—because I’m blonde. Get it?

Good one! You were just on Chelsea Lately, and you said you were thinking of “joining team Samantha Ronson.” Have you?
No. I just know I won’t like it. I wish I were a lesbian. Men are too much hard work. Actually, I wish I were a gay man. You get the best of everything: You get to look hot, be into fashion, and no emotions!

Are you conscious that there are people photographing you wherever you go?
In L.A., yes, but then I come back to Australia and let my guard down. There’s a picture of me picking my nose, and I can’t deny it. I had my whole thumb up there. So you have to laugh it off, but it can make you paranoid.

What kind of guy does a super-duper gorgeous woman like yourself go for?
A guy who is comfortable in his own skin. If you put together all the guys I’ve dated, you’d be amazed. None of them look alike. All shapes, sizes, and ages. One guy looked like he was out of The Lord of the Rings, and I had a brain crush on him. I usually don’t go for good-looking guys. They’re always checking themselves out in mirrors.

You just gave millions of guys hope out there.
