Like many in the modeling industry, Anna-Christina Schwartz sort of walked into it.
"I was actually studying to become a physical therapist and was working part time at a wine fest in my city," she told us. "One day this model scout and photographer came up to me and wanted to shoot me. After the shooting, I was immediately signed with a modeling agency in Munich."
Originally from a small town in Bavaria, the lithe German beauty quickly decimated the competition in Germany and is now based in New York, where her sculptural 5'8" physique and striking features have attracted some of the industry's hottest photographers and preeminent brand names. Repped by Wilhelmina, she has worked for Maybelline, shot for Karl Lagerfeld and even starred in a Marc Anthony music video.
Despite her fast ascent, we managed to track down Anna-Christina for some sorely needed sex and dating advice. Thankfully, she gave us the full rundown, including what catches her attention, her ideal date and what she hates in the bedroom. Listen up.
What catches your eye?
When a guy walks into the room and has a great charisma and confidence.
What's the worst pick-up line you've ever heard?
"Did it hurt... when you fell from heaven?"
So lame. What advice would you give a guy who wants to approach you?
Just be yourself and confident. Don't try to be someone else. A good sense of humor is a big plus.
How do you let a man know you're interested?
It's all in the eyes. The eyes have their own vocabulary.
What's your ideal date?
I love being active so a bike tour, walk through the park, mini golf, tennis or ice skating. And afterwards, always a nice dinner.
Sounds good to us. When do you feel sexiest?
When I am dancing around at home with my undies on.
What's your favorite thing to do in the bedroom?
There are a few things I can think of... but I really like to watch a good movie with a cup of tea and cuddle underneath the blanket.
What should a man never do in the bedroom?
Fart! Use the restroom for that, please!
We'd never. Do you have any sexy fantasies?
I do have a few... but that's my secret.
You know how to keep us guessing. Lastly, what's your guiltiest pleasure?
Pizza! There is nothing better than a New York pizza. But I am also addicted to chocolate... basically anything sweet.
