Ocean Drive’s November cover girl Nina Agdal talks love, industry pressure and “being that burger girl”
"I am 21 years old, and I don't think anyone who is 21 knows what love is about yet"
Nina Agdal is continuing her World Domination Tour, this time with an interview and cover shoot for Ocean Drive magazine. The luxury Miami glossy got the Rookie of the Year to open up about love and marriage (hint: it involves tequila), body image and that whole Adam Levine ordeal:
On living in Miami:
The first place I went in America was Boca Raton, and I thought it was awesome. It was spring break, and there were tons of young people and cute Americans in Speedos.
On her Super Bowl ad for Carl’s Jr.:
I’m getting recognized from that commercial. People come up to me and say, “Oh, you’re that burger girl.” People ask if my mouth was Photoshopped, and it’s not. My mouth actually is that big. That’s what I’m known for now, “the burger girl.” But I like it. It was so fun to shoot it, and I think it came out really well. I’m the burger girl.
On her personal style:
Very casual and comfortable. Today I wore this Forever 21 T-shirt, an H&M sweater, Nike Air Max sneakers, and a Michael Kors bag. And Ray-Bans. I am really good at saving my money. . . . I want, like, 100 kids, so I’m going to have to save a lot of money for that.
On the pressure to stay thin:
There have been times when people have told me to lose weight or tone up certain areas. . . . It hurts no matter who you are and how skinny you are or how big you are. If somebody tells you to lose weight, it is like a punch in the face.
On whether her July split from Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine taught her anything about love:
No, it didn’t. I am 21 years old, and I don’t think anyone who is 21 knows what love is about yet. I think love just happens. It happened to them and I’m happy for [Levine and his fianceé, model Behati Prinsloo, who got engaged in July]. . . . [S]o many young girls have this idea of a relationship or marriage or love and [they] don’t even know. We are 21 years old, okay? Go out, have a tequila, and stop worrying about it.
