Jasmin! What an absolute honor to have you grace our October cover! How excited were you to be the cover of Playboy? I was very excited! I am really honored to grace this month’s cover of Playboy Sweden. Being a Playmate and model for the Playboy brand these last four years has been incredible. It’s something I am so proud of and I am just really excited about this year’s opportunities. This is my third cover with Playboy and it’s been such an amazing experience.
Modeling is a big part of your life, could you tell us what inspired you to start and what your journey has been like to get to this point? Modeling has always been a dream career for me ever since I was a teen. And it wasn’t until I was 21 that I did my first professional photoshoot and got right into it. I still remember the first experience, I wanted to be on set all day. Ever since then, I’ve never looked back and it was definitely one of the best decisions I’ve made. The journey has been quite a long one in a way. I know that I have consistently trained as a model, to improve my skills and professionalism. And then there’s of course the social media side of things; always presenting my best work to my fans and interacting. There’s definitely a lot to it nowadays. I have traveled to many places, mostly between the USA, Canada and Australia, to work with many industry professionals, and brands, and that has also been so rewarding. I can definitely say it’s been a fun and jam-packed journey in my career.
You look incredible, what are some of your favorite ways to work out? I go to the gym 4 to 5 times a week. I make sure to do light weights and plenty of cardio. The treadmill and the cross trainer machine are the best for cardio workouts I reckon. I also enjoy cycling, as that’s a good workout for the legs. I discovered a very comfortable way to work out the butt area, without using the barbell or squats. Using Pilates and elastic bands, you can actually work out the butt muscle, as well as many other areas of your body. I find that it also increases flexibility too. If I am not at the gym, I enjoy jogging and swimming outdoors.
Tell us something surprising about you? I love ’90s films and often even older films. There’s just something classic about the storylines and the way they made films back then. I am more of a comedy person, to be honest. So I always prefer watching something funny. But it’s very rare that I will turn down the opportunity to watch an ’80s or ’90s film – a lot of them are very timeless stories that are remembered for generations.
Describe yourself in one sentence? I am fun, passionate and a confident woman, who continues to follow her dreams.
Turn-ons? A gentleman in a suit and of course the scent of cologne.
Turnoffs? Bad odor and public toilets.
If you could have one superpower, what would it be? The ability to harness wind.
What makes you tick? Modeling and acting continues to motivate me. And often seeing other celebrities and creatives inspires me, and motivates me to keep going. Music is also something I have always enjoyed. All genres really, from RnB to pop music and more. I have to say music really makes me tick. I feel more pumped and motivated for almost anything when I listen to my favorite songs.
Thank you so much for sitting with us and letting us get to know a bit about you! Any last words for our readers out there? Thank you so much Playboy Sweden for having me grace your cover!
