Lauren Phillips / @laurenpillsup
Happy to have you feature on Playboy! Can you give us a bit of a background on your career as a model and where it all started? I have been modeling for about 10 years and started in Clearwater, Florida. After two years, I packed my bags and moved to Los Angeles to grow my business and career.
What are some of your best career highlights so far? My number one career highlight is being contracted non-exclusively with Adult Time. They’re a company that knows how to treat its models and represents my industry the way it should be. I don’t doubt that this collaboration with Adult Time will help my brand and business grow.
Social media is a very powerful tool; given your massive following, what are some of the challenges you face when it comes to marketing your brand and maintaining a solid following? I definitely agree that social media is a very powerful tool. One of my challenges is getting burnt out when keeping up with content. It’s hard to have a camera in your face and always attached to you. It definitely makes you miss having personal time. Most of the time, I have to schedule personal stuff for myself.
Can you give us a breakdown of a typical day in the life of a glamorous model on set? This always depends on the scenario of that day, but there are typical routines I have. First, I try to get enough sleep to bring my A+ game on set. I wake up with coffee and water, so I can go over my calendar and what’s expected of me that day. I usually plan the night before travel times because I like to be 15 minutes early. Once on set, I typically go into makeup, do paperwork, take photos, and/or run dialogue. Most of my days on set are expected to be six to eight hours long, but I have rare longer days that can be 13+ hours.
What are some of the biggest misconceptions people have about what you do? The biggest misconception people have about me is that all I do is work to set, but that’s not true. If I’m not on set, I have a lot of other business responsibilities that I usually have to attend to. I also have multiple businesses that aren’t in my industry that usually need my attention. I typically work at least 12-hour days every day. There are no holidays in my world.
Now we know there are some pretty perks that come with being a beautiful woman, what would say are your favorite ones? This is a tough question because I believe beauty is reflected from the inside, not just the outside. But I guess one of the perks is people wanting to be around you. I’m a pretty big social butterfly, and I love talking to people.
Given that you’re a stunning woman who undoubtedly gets a lot of attention, what are some of the nicest things men have done to try and get your attention? One of the things that I love about guys trying to get my attention is when they bring me things that I like, such as roses, my favorite wine, or Irish whiskey. It says that they really are listening to what I put on the Internet.
What makes you feel absolutely sexy? I always feel sexy with my makeup and hair done with a nice glass of wine.
3 things that you can’t go a day without? I can’t go without coffee, usually being on my phone takes up a huge chunk of my day and checking in on my other businesses at all times. I’m pretty much a workaholic.
Anything exciting we should be on the lookout for coming through this year from you? As part of my contract, I will have two new Adult Time releases I have co-directed with Bree Mills. They are an original series focusing on women, empowerment, and accepting people for who they are.
