‘Baywatch’ Star Reveals How It Felt To Put On The Iconic, Red Swimsuit For The First Time
Kelly Rohrbach pulls the iconic, red “Baywatch” swimsuit off with ease, but a lot of work went into making it fit just right.
“You won’t believe how many fittings it took to get the swimsuit right,” the 27-year-old model/actress told The Daily Star.
“It was re-tailored like 10 times to make my legs look as long as they can and my bum look as good as possible, but I am really happy with the end result,” she admitted.
Rohrbach is playing the role of CJ Parker, made famous by Pamela Anderson in the hit television series in the 1980s. The beautiful blonde is excited to be carrying on the role in the upcoming big screen reboot, and by the looks of it she was a great selection for the job.
“The red Baywatch swimsuit is iconic,” Rohrbach said. “When I had my first fitting I guess it felt a bit like Superman putting on his cape for the first time.”
Although the she makes it look easy, Kelly said the entire cast had to work incredibly hard to get their “beach bodies” ready for the summer movie.
“I love to eat, so I worked out really hard. I was running at least five times a week, plus I was doing a lot of weights and boxing classes.” (VIDEO: The Latest ‘Baywatch’ Trailer Brings Back That Slow-Motion Jog You’ve Been Waiting For)
The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model didn’t seem to mind the workouts, though. “The great thing was that because I was doing such high-intensity workouts I got to eat steak every night during filming!”
“Baywatch” goes to theaters across the United States on May 26 just in time to get your summer started right.
