My First Time: Whitney Able

Set to break out this year in two movies, All the Boys Love Mandy Lane (a horror pic about a group of high schoolers partying on a secluded ranch) and Remarkable Power (a comedy about a late-night talk show host), this big-screen stunner shares her other milestones.

First Album
Led Zeppelin II. That song “Ramble On” was my jam for a minute there.

First Fight
My brother and I used to have karate tournaments in the living room when my mom wasn’t home. One time I hurt him badly, so he chased me around the house and gave me the old chesty—he held me down and poked me in the chest, hard, to make a bruise.

First Car Accident
My ultimate blonde moment. I was in my car at a stoplight. I reversed so the car in front of me could back up, but I forgot to put it back in drive. When the light turned green, I hit the gas and ran into the car behind me. Ridiculous.

First Sex
There’s really only one word for losing my virginity: “Oops.” It makes me laugh now. It never happened again with that person.

First Audition
It was for this TV show Skin. I didn’t get the job. There are a million nos before you get a yes.

First Nude Scene
I play the popular girl in All the Boys Love Mandy Lane, and at one point I take my shirt off. At first I went, “Eh, I don’t know about the nudity thing,” but I went for it. I’m not afraid of the body—I think I was European in a past life.
