“Ted” and “90210″ star Jessica Stroup gives HollywoodLife.com the scoop on her partnership with AXE hair products, and tells us which of her co-stars she’s crushing on!
With her gorgeous eyes and alluring smile, Jessica Stroup lights up the CW’s 90210 and this weekend’s big new comedy, Ted. The hot young actress filled us in on Seth MacFarlane’s directorial debut and, as part of the movie’s tie-in with AXE Hair, shared a few grooming tips, too. We just supplied the pics. Enjoy.
You’re on hiatus from 90210. Have you had fun on your time off?
Yeah! Mostly I’ve been renovating my new loft. I love doing interior design and finding furniture that reflects my taste. Even just sitting on the floor in my house is fun.
Got any design tips for guys?
Less is more. You really want to find standout pieces that reflect your vibe. For example, I like a random mix of cool Moroccan pieces so I look for eclectic things. And try to keep it neat so if you are about to have a date over, you are ready!
What was it like working with Mila Kunis, Mark Wahlberg, Joel McHale and the rest of the Ted cast?
It was incredible! Mila is a wonderful, down-to-earth, cool girl—we were already friends. And Seth MacFarlane is a good friend of mine, too. All the guys are so funny and talented! And to see the mechanical CGI process behind a talking bear was fascinating.
What kind of hair do you like on a guy?
I like for him to keep it short on the sides and long on the top. Actually, I don’t even care about the top, just so long as he keeps it tight on the sides.
Sounds like he’ll need some hair product…
Definitely! I love AXE’s Whatever Messy Look Paste. It doesn’t leave any residue and looks really natural. It gives you the hold without the hard feel. And I love the AXE deodorant. I want my man to smell good!
At Made Man, we are really big on ’staches. Thoughts?
Yeah, please don’t grow your moustaches over the top of your lip. I really don’t like it. I just don’t think it looks good.
What do you want guys to know about women?
That we are not all angry feminists all the time. We like when a guy holds the door. We like when you are a gentleman. If you want to pay the bill, that’s fine too, but maybe we want to be independent and pay for ourselves. Don’t assume anything. Let a woman be a woman… let us surprise you!
What’s a good first date?
I love riding bikes together—to a restaurant or wherever. I love a fit man who loves doing physical things like hiking and walking.
What else do you look for in a guy?
I look for someone who is an all-around good dude with a good heart. And someone who is funny.
(…) One of the film’ss stars, Jessica Stroup, is particularly excited about the MacFarlane/AXE collaboration. Admittedly attracted to guys with nicely maintained manes, the 90210, who has also worked on a couple of Family Guy episodes, thinks the affiliation makes perfect sense. Unfortunately, Ted never gets the chance to woo her character in the movie (she plays a co-worker of Wahlberg’s love interest, played by Mila Kunis), but something tells us he would’ve fared quite well.
Complex recently had a fun chat with Stroup to find out more about making Ted, what makes working with MacFarlane so enjoyable, and why guys should pay attention to his AXE spots.
Ted has a pretty outrageous premise: Mark Wahlberg smokes pot and gets into all kinds of trouble with a potty-mouthed, horny teddy bear. But somehow it all works, and the movie is hilarious. Was that outrageous premise what drew you to the project?
I’m actually a really good friend of Seth’s, so I knew he was coming up with this idea, and I knew that he was going to let me read the script once they’d gotten closer to finishing it. As you can see in the movie, I have a really small part, but I got to be with them on the set for a whole month, and kind of sit around and shadow Seth in a way, to see how he can multi-task so well, with, obviously, the writing, the directing, and starring in the movie.
I was just blown away. I think the whole cast that they got is really funny, and just being in there, in my own comfort zone, and having the opportunity to watch them and learn from them was the main goal. And the fact that it’s such a cool movie is even better.
W finally know when we will be able to see the first episode from season 5 of 90210. It’ll return monday, October 8th at 8/7c! The show will run without any breaks until the winter hiatus in december!
Jessica was interviewed by Lindsay Miller from PopSugar. She talked about new 90210 series and working with Mark Wahlberg. It’s very interesting so please watch it
