Interview: Anne Atkinson, Classic / Mature Model

August 6, 2013 under News

I would like to introduce Anne Atkinson, a UK-based mature model who has an excellent portfolio of fashion and lingerie photos.  She agreed to answer a few questions about her life and career.

 

Q: It’s very interesting to see a woman who works as a model beyond
the age of 25.  I’ve heard before that for commercial photoshoots all
different age groups were in demand just so that the companies could
appeal to various age groups.  Do you feel that being a mature model
you have less competition than all the 21-year-olds running from
casting to casting?

A: In my age group there are fewer models with what seems to be a greater variety of looks for different types of shoots. However, getting paid work is harder as there seem to be fewer opportunities, so I have been working on generating some ideas of my own to work on.

 

Q: Some people say that modeling is fun.  Do you agree?  I personally
see it as work that is physically and mentally demanding, at least
based on my own experience.

A: While modelling can be very physically and mentally demanding, it can also be good fun. It’s good to be able to develop a rapport with the photographer and exchange a few jokes. I prefer not to take myself TO seriously but I feel I have to give the job everything I’ve got.

It’s important to keep fit and eat healthily though, so modelling isn’t just about turning up for jobs but also about maintaining a healthy approach to life all the time. It’s important also to bring ideas of your own to a shoot. The photographers appreciate your input and generating creative ideas adds to the enjoyment of the job.

 

Q: Have you ever thought of starting your own modelling agency?

A: Starting a modelling agency is not something I have thought of. I would think it would be very hard to get started in what is quite an uncertain area of business.

 

Q: What are your thoughts about parents putting their kids in modeling
and beauty pageants at an early age?  If it would be up to you, would
you put a certain age minimum on that?

A: When my sons were younger, as they were both attractive children, it crossed my mind to try and get them into the child modelling world. I think parents need to think very carefully about what it could involve and make sure that the child’s happiness and welfare is always foremost.

I have sometimes been concerned that some parents are fulfilling a need of their own and maybe forget to think too deeply about the welfare of the child. I certainly think the child beauty pageants are wrong on many levels. They can give a child an unrealistic set of values and could even lead to problems of self esteem as they get older.

Having said all this, there are obviously children who love all the attention, the opportunities to dress up etc. With the proper safeguards, (including proper checks from outside agencies) I think it can be OK.

 

Q: Great to see that you enjoy lingerie.  Do you have any favourite
lingerie outfits that you would like to share with us?

A: I enjoy posing in lingerie but, being older, there are areas of my body that I prefer to keep covered. So my favourite types of lingerie are usually items such as bodies, teddies and corsets. One of my favourites is this one (displayed below) – the frill and the different materials accentuates my figure and makes me feel sexy.

Anne Hathaway and Her Amazing Career Path

August 4, 2012 under Famous

Anne Hathaway is one of my favourite actresses.  I like her because she is cute, naturally slim, and she’s got a lot of spirit.  I can’t quite say exactly what it is, but there is a special spark to her.

Anne Jacqueline Hathaway was born on November 12, 1982 in Brooklyn, New York.  Her love for the theatre developed in childhood because of her love for art.  She started getting roles to play as a child in 1998 in the theatre.  As a teenager, she went to study at Barrow Group, a prestigious theater company in New York, but only for a brief time.

Her career rise begun when she appeared on the television show Get Real, where she played the role of a Princess.  Through it she gained vast popularity that made her a hit among the movie producers.   Consequently, Anne Hathaway took the lead role in “The Princess Diaries”.  In 2001 the film was released and Anne Hathaway charmed millions of Movie watchers worldwide.

The actress became a vegetarian in 2009 after reading the book "Eating Animals" – by Jonathan Safran Foer.  Anne has two brothers – Michael Senior and Tom Junior. They are also creative people – Michael is a writer, and Tom wants to become an actor.
Anne is very accepting to gay people since her own brother, Michael, is gay.  It even made her reconsider being part of the Catholic faith, since they don’t consent to this kind of diversity.

One of her roles made ​​her a role model for children – Mia Thermopolis in the Disney movie Princess Diaries. She also co-starred with the legendary award winning actress Julie Andrews. The movie was a great success at the box office and with critics.

Christian Bale films Batman in the streets of Los Angeles

In 2004, Anne Hathaway starred in the sequel Princess Diaries 2: How to Become a Queen, which is not as good as the first one though.  Her role in Disney films has given her more fame and hit in the movie industry.  She appeared in Nicholas Nickelby (2002) and received her National Board of Film Critics Award.  Hathaway starred in many movies and here are a few popular ones:

  • Ella Enchanted (2004)

  • The Devil Wears Prada (2006)
  • Passengers (2008)
  • Get Smart (2008)
  • Hood vs. Evil (2008)

Since her first appearance on the big screen, Anne Hathaway has been nominated for more than 10 awards.  Hollywood today is filled with many glamorous stars – and Anne Hathaway is definitely one of them.
