- London, England
- On posing
- Nude photography is about vulnerability, the beauty of the picture. It’s not about sexualizing or objectifying myself.
- Favorite pastime
- Going to restaurants to eat. I love Italian food and a good steak.
- Words of advice
- Everybody’s going to have their own opinion. You can’t please everyone. You just have to live your life and do what you want.
Elsie’s Insta feed, which hosts over 500,000 followers, doesn’t tell the whole story. When she isn’t modeling, she’s absorbed in acting classes (she cites Meryl Streep, Diane Keaton and Faye Dunaway as three of her favorite actors), and she’s the nurturer among her friends. “I always have advice to give,” our June 2017 Playmate says during her sexy desert photoshoot. “I’m like a mama.”
Born and raised in London until the age of 10, Hewitt moved to her current home of Los Angeles, where she carries herself with the air of a young woman who has lived, perhaps because she has. “I’ve been working since I was 15, and I’m totally independent,” the rare amalgam of warmth, world-tested savvy and undeniable sex appeal, explains, before getting into a hotter topic with the shapely siren: men, which, staying true to character, is decidedly simple. “Teeth are important,” she assertedly notes.
When it comes to her own appearance, Hewitts’ legitimately low-maintenance. “I don’t care about looking perfect,” she says. “I don’t wear make-up. I just got my first haircut in six years. My hair was down to my butt,” she continues. “I chopped it off at 12, 13 inches and it’s still long.”
An undeniably beautiful woman, Hewitt not only understands, but staunchly appreciates, the allure of the female form. “Nude photography is about vulnerability, the beauty of the picture,” she says. “It’s not about sexualizing or objectifying myself. But everybody’s going to have their own opinion. You can’t please everyone. You just have to live your life and do what you want.”
