Biography

From magazine covers to the big screen, Brooklyn Decker is a rare success story in the precarious transition from being one of the biggest names in modeling to emerging as a rising Hollywood actor. Brooklyn began her transition in 2011, starring in her first role in a feature film playing a young teacher romanced by a plastic surgeon (Adam Sandler). In the comedy_ **Just Go With It** _for Columbia Pictures, Sandler enlists his assistant (Jennifer Aniston) to pretend to be his ex-wife, in order to cover up a careless lie.    In 2012 Brooklyn starred in Pete Berg’s **_Battleship_** for Universal Pictures, opposite Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgård, Liam Neeson and Rihanna. The young actor also released **_What to Expect When You’re Expecting_**_ _the same week_ _for Lionsgate. Directed by Kirk Jones, Decker played “Skyler” in one of the film’s interlocking stories alongside Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez, Elizabeth Banks and Anna Kendrick. **_Lovesong_**, directed by So Yong Kim, in which she co-stars will be released in February 2017.   Brooklyn has also appeared in NBC’S comedy sitcom pilot **Lipshitz Saves the World** that led to guest starring roles on FOX’s **New Girl**, NBC’s **Chuck** and ABC’s **Ugly Betty** as well as the USA Network hit **Royal Pains**. She then appeared in a three-episode arc of FX’s comedy series, **The League**. In 2013, the actor starred in CBS’s ensemble cast comedy **Friends With Better Lives** as the newly engaged, naïve Jules. Most recently Brooklyn appeared alongside Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston in the Netflix “dramedy” **Grace and Frankie**, the streaming platform’s longest running series, at 7 seasons.   In early 2017, Brooklyn launched **Finery**, a web platform that acts as the “operating system for your wardrobe,” serving as Design Director alongside founder Whitney Casey. Brooklyn’s interest in design, fashion and technology has also led her to work with a number of globally recognized clothing, home and digital brands throughout her career. They sold the company and intellectual property to Stitch Fix in 2019.   Brooklyn got her start after being prodded by friends into modeling in her hometown of Charlotte at the age of 16. Two years later, she moved to New York City where she quickly rose to stardom within the industry, gracing the pages of magazines including **Vogue, Elle, GQ, Glamour, Esquire, Cosmopolitan, PoP Magazine **and** Teen Vogue.**   Brooklyn’s big break came in 2006 when she first appeared in the wildly popular **Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. **In her fifth year, Brooklyn Decker cemented her place in pop culture history by appearing on the cover of the magazine and was consequently named **Esquire’s** _Sexiest Woman Alive_. 
   Inspired by her love of sports and her aunt’s personal struggles from being born without a corpus callosum in her brain, Brooklyn became active in the Special Olympics in her hometown of Charlotte in 2004 and is now a global ambassador for the organization. She also supports the Sierra Club and various veterans organizations.   In April 2009, Brooklyn married Andy Roddick in a private ceremony in Austin, Texas. The couple have 3 children: 2 humans (a son, Hank, and a daughter, Stevie) as well as one dog (their English bulldog, Bob Costas) and 2 cats (Ethel and Ruby)..
