Desktop Girl of the Week: Brooklyn Decker
If by now you don't know who Brooklyn Decker is, you've probably been hiding under a rock for the past few years, and you DEFINITELY haven't been watching any commercials for the past two months.
Decker is an incredibly popular Victoria's Secret and SI Swimsuit Edition model, and normally I don't pick models as DGOW selections, because I like to write about the things these women can do besides look good. However, in the past year or so, Decker has branched out into acting, starting with a guest appearance on "Chuck", where she played a model (ooh, what a stretch!).
However, as I mentioned above, you've probably seen Decker in every other commercial break since about Christmas, and not for Victoria's Secret or SI. No, instead its for her feature film debut, "Just Go With It", where she co-stars alongside Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler. Does the movie look good? Not particularly. But it will probably be successful at the box office, and Decker will be a big part of that success.
It's also worth pointing out that Decker is married to American tennis star Andy Roddick, which means that the better Roddick does, the more likely you are to see Decker rooting him on from the stands. Sadly, that hasn't been that frequent of late, as Roddick has reached just one Grand Slam final in the last four years, and hasn't won a Grand Slam event since his U.S. Open win in 2003. Oh, and when Roddick won that event, Decker was just 17 years old. No, they were not dating then.
