Remember that guy, the one that scored a perfect 100 at this year’s Winter X Games in Aspen?
Yep, you know the one. Well apparently the blazoned redhead is involved with more than just high-flying aerobatics. Now he’s also a full-fledged model. Shaun White recently popped up posing on the home page of the Mr. Porters, a website geared towards gentlemen who are into high-fashion.
The feature includes a lengthy interview with the burgeoning star and delves into all aspects of the 25-year-old’s career. From competitions, to endorsements, movies and more, Mr. Porter’s shows Shaun White in a new light.
Here’s an excerpt from the interview.
Q. You are a daredevil by default. Do you take a similar approach when it comes to style?
A. I love to compete but as far as being a daredevil, that’s the furthest thing from me. My lifestyle off the hill is totally different. I guess when it comes to fashion I’m geared more towards styles that are driven by musicians. I’ve always worn tighter jeans, sports coats and suit jackets.
Q. After your cameo appearance in Friends With Benefits, is acting something you would like to do more of?
A. It was definitely something that put me out of my element, but I found it really exciting and intriguing. Going to the premiere in New York was great. I’d love to do more acting but nothing has really piqued my interest yet.
Q. What is the one thing people always assume about you that’s not true?
A. People always think I’m going to act a certain way because I have sponsors and various things in my life that are very corporate. At the end of the day I’m a 25-year-old guy in the action sports world. And I like to have a good time.
