Given that Emmy Elliott has appeared in big-budget productions including 2018's Ocean's 8 and Showtime's Billions, as well as two James Franco-directed indie movies (The Pretenders and Highschool Lover), it may comes as a surprise that the rising model/actress never planned on having a career in front of the camera.
"I never wanted my photo taken and was shy, I kept getting asked to model and that people thought I had a unique look," she tells us. "After my first shoot I was hooked, and now I can't get enough of it."
Learn about Elliott's favorite pick-up artist technique, sexiest state, dream date and more below:
How can someone catch your attention?
It's hard because I'm super busy and always on the move, but I think eye contact can be really sexy. Or complimenting me, but like turning it into a question, like asking my nationality or ab routine.
What’s the worst pick-up line you’ve ever heard?
"Our kids would have amazing eyebrows."
How do you let someone know you’re interested?
I'm aggressive...I'll eye-f*ck them back, ha. And I'll touch somewhere on my body, like my neck or hair, while I'm talking to them. I feel like I do it subconsciously, but body language never lies. Or I'll make a bunch of sexual jokes.
Tell us about your dream date.
I like being outside, so going to the park or beach at sunset in the summer or getting sweaty and working out. I don't drink and never have, so I hate when guys ask me to get drinks. I'm wild enough without it.
What turns you on the most?
I'm good at teasing...like super good. It turns me on to turn on other guys. I'm definitely a pleaser. I also like when a guy is dominant.
When do you feel sexiest?
I feel sexiest in front of a camera or just dancing around my apartment naked. I'll no joke clean and dance naked, I'm sure my neighbors have had a laugh at it once or twice.
Who’s your biggest celebrity crush?
Tyler Cameron. And a weird part of me has a crush on Christian Bale as Patrick Bateman in American Psycho.
What's on your fave music playlist?
Biggie, Mobb Deep, Future, and Hans Zimmer's The Dark Knight soundtrack. I love film scores. Got to have epic workouts.
Do you have a favorite athlete or sports team?
Eric Decker...hey, big sexy! And my favorite team is the Dallas Cowboys.
What fashion brands do you like to rock?
I think it's sexier to dress more "girl next door"-ish than to be dolled up. I like cut-off shorts with a bikini or crop top and Adidas sneakers.
What's your absolute favorite food or meal?
Cookie dough! But I'm not supposed to say that, so grilled salmon—I marinate it with maple syrup. Chef's kiss.
Favorite travel destination?
I've been to so many exotic and amazing countries, but Miami is actually my favorite place. The sunsets, beaches, and something in the air there is just so sexy.
What’s your guiltiest pleasure?
Going down a rabbit hole on YouTube watching shark documentaries and videos.
