Maxim – My First Time: Serinda Swan Photos
It’s crystal-clear why Serinda Swan is Canada’s hottest new export (sorry, timber). The Vancouver-born beauty plays Aphrodite, the goddess of love and sexual desire, in Chris Columbus’ new flick, Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, and heats up the screen later this year in the highly anticipated Tron Legacy. Read on to learn about the stunner’s most significant first times.
With Percy Jackson, I originally went out for the role of Medusa. I was on the set of Tron before the audition, so I got the makeup people there to make me look scary. I did all my research and showed up looking like Medusa, but I ended up getting the complete opposite role, Aphrodite. Definitely a compliment!
First Love Letter
I got some really cute fan mail from an 11-year-old boy, who told me I’m “prettier than a rainbow,” which is, like, the sweetest thing any boy has ever said to me. Maybe when he grows up, he’ll be able to read this story—and if he is reading this now and he is 11, then, hey, you shouldn’t be reading Maxim!
First Secret Workout Tip
I pole-dance. I do. I do it at an aerobics center. Having done gymnastics for 13 years, I find it’s one of the only things where I can still use my core and all my muscles. Plus, it’s fun: You’re a girl, and you get to dance around a pole!
