Dang, Jenna Ushkowitz is one lucky lady.
Michael Trevino, aka “The Vampire Diaries” resident werewolf turned hybrid, is the face of Bench Body Underwear and all we can say is wow. You can take a peek at the photos from the shoot at JustJared and a look at the behind-the-scenes video below. Check out a few excerpts from Michael’s recent interview about the brand as well.
It’s your first time to endorse a Filipino brand. How do you feel about it?
“Actually, it’s the first time that I am ever endorsing any product. This whole procedure…you know, including this pictorial…is very new to me but it’s very interesting, it’s an experience that I’m welcoming. It’s really nice, especially the first part which is this photo shoot.”
I could see during the photo shoot that you were comfortable and sexy in the Bench Underwear.
“Yeah. It’s my first time to be photographed in an underwear.” (Laughing self-consciously) “It made me feel like I was damn-near completely naked.”
What’s your usual workout?
“I try to work out at least five days a week. As you guys know, in The Vampire Diaries, they have us shirtless from time to time so I better be prepared for that. I have to be fit and in perfect health all the time. We are filming right now and luckily my workout for the Bench shoot is very helpful; it put me in decent shape.”
What about your diet? What kind of food do you avoid and what kind do you always crave for?
“You know, I eat lots of candies, ice-cream and chocolate chip cookies; it’s like I’m addicted to them, so I try to cut down my intake of them and try my best to just eat healthy. I follow a high-protein diet. Three days before a shoot, I kind of not starve myself but I cut down on everything.”
Any actors and artists that you look up to as role models?
“Mark Wahlberg is one of them. His career is going great since he started as a Calvin Klein model and as Marky Mark the musician. Now he’s doing great work as an actor. He’s even executive-producing movies and shows that are successful and winning awards. I like that! I admire that! You know, you have a happy family and a successful career.”
