Tell us about the moment you found out you were going to be featured in the magazine. It was a very special moment. I had already been on the cover of Playboy Magazine in 2012 in Brazil. When I found out that I would have the opportunity to appear again on the cover of the same magazine, I was very happy, because the first one was very important in Brazil.

What was your initial reaction? I was very excited to participate again, as my fans asked me a lot, I posed 12 years ago and as I have changed a lot physically, it will be a very gratifying and expected surprise for them.

Can you share your favorite photo or magazine spread and why it has special meaning to you? My favorite photo was one where I’m wearing glasses, looking firm and serene at the camera, holding one of my breasts and my bikini half down and the other hand holding the net. This photo has a special meaning, as it represents my strong personality, of communicating with people by looking them in the eyes and being myself.

When you’re not working, what helps you decompress and relax? I love training to relax. I also love traveling and enjoying the beach.

What’s the weirdest fan encounter you’ve ever had? The strangest encounter was when a fan asked me to take off my shoes and take a photo next to my feet.

 What’s the best “wardrobe malfunction” story you can laugh about right now? There was one time when I went out to dinner and the button on my dress was wrong and at the entrance to the restaurant it opened and I wasn’t wearing any underwear and I only realized it when I sat at the table.

What are some of your biggest dreams that you hope to achieve? During my life, I have already achieved some dreams, but my biggest dream is to visit most of the countries in the world.

What’s the weirdest beauty tip or trick you’ve learned? When I finish doing my nails and need them to dry as quickly as possible, I dip them in ice water for 3 minutes and they come out dry.

If you were stranded on a desert island with just one accessory, what would it be? I would take a vibrator lol.

What’s your guilty pleasure snack? A hot Philadelphia, a Japanese food that is fried in Brazil. As I don’t eat a lot of fried food, when I’m off my diet I like to eat this or a good pizza.

What is the worst thing a man can do to completely turn you off? Not having a sense of humor and treating a waiter badly.

What advice would you give aspiring models? Always seek to improve yourself in ways that lead to a modeling career, and never give up on “no” until you get what you want.

Thank you for taking the time to speak with us. Do you have any last words for our readers? Thank you to Playboy readers, I really hope you like this wonderful essay that I lovingly created for you. And also thank the thousands of fans who have been with me during these 12 years of media.
