They say the combination of gorgeous looks and high intelligence are a double threat. Toss in a super kind soul who loves to laugh, and you’ve got Sports Illustrated model Kelly Rohrbach. The leggy blonde who captured actor Leonardo DiCaprio’s heart is set to star in the Baywatch reboot on the big screen. Paramount is bringing back the 90s classic lifeguard on the beach TV favorite and featuring Kelly as the new Pam Anderson in the C.J. Parker role, along with Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron. “The Rock” Dwayne Johnson is astonished by Kelly’s beauty and acting prowess, as he mentioned on his Instagram: “Yes, she’s a walking smoke stack but more importantly… she’s smart, tough and funny. Just the way we like ’em. Get ready world, we can’t wait to bring you our generation’s #BAYWATCH!”
Kelly is quite the talented young woman. At age 25, she has accomplished a variety of major achievements. Not only did Sports Illustrated name the stunning, Connecticut born swimsuit model as Rookie of the Year (2015), but Kelly’s athletic and intellectual talents have also delivered notable recognition on her way to stardom.
Kelly is a very good golfer, something she seriously pursued while receiving an all-girl, prep school education at Greenwich Academy in Connecticut. She was awarded a golf scholarship to prestigious Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. That’s the same school of higher education that former President Bill Clinton graduated from, and with a scholarship as well.
Kelly has appeared in a number of television guest spots including Rizzoli & Isles, Two and a Half Men, and The New Normal. She is comfortable and genuine in front of the camera and dazzles on the screen. Plus, the tall stunner comes across with a wonderful sense of humor, as she expressed to Esquire.com: “I’m definitely quick-witted and I can hang with the guys. I’m pretty relaxed and nothing really offends me. I think everything’s funny, to be honest.”
Even her beauty and skin care routine appear effortless. Kelly revealed to HarpersBazaar.com that she only uses a couple of things to maintain a beautiful complexion: “Dove soap and water.”
Beauty, brains, funny, and perfect skin… It’s good to be Kelly Rohrbach.
