Hello, Cella, congrats on your first-ever MAXIM cover. How do you feel?
Nothing can describe the feeling of being on my home soil and being able to see myself in such a classy yet little tsexy magazine in my own country. Even better it’s the lucky last of the year and I’m over the moon. I’m feeling very blessed right now.
What did you love most about this photo shoot?
The team and the atmosphere they bought to the shoot. When you have a team that just laughs, gets things done and you’re all in sync with each other, it makes things just fly through. I’m super stoked to have had such an amazing day with the MAXIM team – I walked away feeling on top on the moon. Thanks guys, you’re truly amazing!
When do you feel sexy?
When I’m wearing my favourite high heels and I’ve just had my hair done.
What is your best asset?
Definitely my eyes. They are moody eyes so they change from yellow speckles, and blue to a dark blue ring with light blue inside, and can even go almost a hazel colour. They’re crazy to watch but they’re definitely the mirror to my soul.
So you’re just a tad busy then?
Yeah, I’m one of those people who either do everything and go hard or I do nothing at all — I can’t have in between.
Tell us a bit about yourself.
Well, I come from an amazing family and great parents. In high school I got a scholarship and was sports captain – I was a little nerd at school. I just loved learning and managed to kill it while running amok at the same time and being the naughty rebel of my family. I literally travelled the world for years and I only recently woke up and decided I knew my future goals, what I want and how to achieve it all.
What would people be most surprised to know about you?
That I’m very kind hearted and family orientated. Even though I travel a lot I get homesick so easily. I think people Judge me from my Instagram and think I’m some stuck-up girl but I’m far from.
Agreed. How would you describe yourself in five words?
Fun, crazy (in a good way), down-toearth, emotional and passionate.
Describe your ideal man.
A guy who loves me endlessly, would walk over hot coals for me and stick by me even if I’ve done something right or wrong. Someone who would always stand by my side and stick up for me no matter what the problem is. It’s not about looks these days, it’s all about the way they treat me.
How does a man win his way to your heart?
It’s simple – great food, amazing wine and don’t forget the chocolates!
What’s one thing men should always remember about women?
That we are a different breed and you need to learn how to walk that fine line of keeping us interested but not be too clingy. Just remember that we are over
the top and never know what we want ourselves, so don’t try and guess or you will probably get your head bitten off.
Would you ever date one of your social media followers?
I would never say never.
If you had to take MAXIM on a date, what would it entail?
I’d take you to some of my all-time favourite places starting at Rockpool in Melbourne, then getting on a plane to Sydney and going to some hidden place – I just adore an adventure. At the end the night we would end up at Versace Hotel in the Gold Coast so we get to wake up hungover and sun baking at the beautiful pool with cocktails and champagne.
