Joanna Krupa

Joanna reveals how she felt playing Natalia the Russian ballerina.

on Sep 30, 2013

I wanted to look the opposite of how I normally look, so I got a short dark wig and did my makeup super dark, which is the opposite of what I normally do. I really wanted to get into the whole character I was going to play -- Natalia the Russian ballerina. I came up with Natalia, because I felt it seemed exotic, plus Russian girls are super hot and maybe that would get Romain excited LOL!

On my way to the Four Seasons bar I already had a few shots of vodka at home, since I was super nervous and felt uncomfortable because it wasn't Halloween and I felt out of my comfort zone. But I had to go on with it as I went this far to get ready and change my look, but didn't want to give up now. When I sat down at the bar and saw Romain, it was hard for me to keep a straight face without blowing up in laughter, because this was so different from how we are, but at that point I was feeling good since the alcohol had kicked, and I started feeling much more confident in my character. As the conversation went on, I couldn't believe the things Romain was saying, so I was playing along and decided that Natalia wasn't going to be a sweet little girl like the sex therapist would like her to be and I made her a tough chick – an exaggerated version of myself LOL!
