From Abercrombie Models to Actors

Lots of actors and actresses start out in the modeling industry before making it big in Hollywood. Here's the dish on a couple of hotties who began their careers as Abercrombie & Fitch models, as well as some fresh faces to watch for!

From Model to Actor - Chris Carmack

Before he was Luke, the popular, water polo player and ex-BF of Marissa Cooper on The O.C., Chris Carmack was just an ordinary guy attending NYU. His drop-dead gorgeous looks were soon discovered by an A&F modeling scout, who felt he was perfect for their 2000 Back to School campaign. His Abercrombie gig led to opportunities with Guess, Target and Cosmo Girl, but he wanted to pursue his passion for acting. So he moved to LA and landed the part of Luke, and most recently starred in the Lindsay Lohan flick, Just My Luck!

From Model to Actor - Tom Welling

When Tom Welling graduated from high school, he had no idea what he wanted to do with his life, but he knew he didn't want to go to college. So he just went with the flow and did whatever he wanted to do. Well, that sure worked out for him cuz while he was partying with pals in Nantucket, an Abercrombie scout liked what he saw in Tom. He moved to the Big Apple and modeled for a couple of years, but never felt at home in the modeling world. In 2000, he went to LA to give acting a try cuz he thought it looked easy! And sure enough, he won the role of the young Clark Kent on WB's Smallville within a few months.

Before his superhero days, Tom Welling was an Abercrombie & Fitch model.

From Model to Actor - Fresh Faces

Abercrombie Kids occasionally features profiles of kids and teens who are living an "a" life AKA an abercrombie lifestyle. The latest A&F profile features 16 year-old Ian Andrewes. Like every other teen, he wakes up in the morning, fixes himself some breakfast - and then goes sailing off the coast of Oahu! Ian, who lives in Hawaii, competes in international sailing races and most recently cruised into first place at the 29er Worlds. He says he's destined to be a sailor, but keep an eye out for him cuz he could also be destined to be the next Abercrombie model-turned-actor!

From Model to Actor - The Real Deal

So if you party with pals or hang out on a boat, you'll be discovered, right? Although it has happened to some lucky peeps, the better way to go about it is to make a portfolio (a collection of your photos) and audition for modeling gigs by attending a go-see (models go to a photographer's studio or casting office and they are seen). Just putting your face out there, whether it's through print, catalogue or runway modeling, will give you great exposure and get you noticed by other modeling scouts. It'll also help you get your foot in the doors of casting directors who are looking for rising stars!

From Model to Actor - Abercrombie's Model Call
How do you feel about becoming a 'crombie boy or girl? You never know where it could take you, and if you're as lucky as Chris and Tom, you could be hearing, "Lights! Camera! Action!" before you know it! Check out the official Abercrombie & Fitch website for details on how to audition as a model. Even if you don't want to parade around in front of the camera, just check out the site for cool clothes like graphic t-shirts, hoodies and jeans.

    • They're cool, but sometimes too sexed up.
    • Who cares?

    Dear Dish-It In The Forums

    I can relate very much.  :e  It happens a lot. But here's one thing, try not to date. At my middle school, everyone literally dates everybody and relationships never last. Part of the reason is that most of us aren't in that mature phase yet (mostly boys). As the days go by, we're growing. But, it's completely normal to have a crush on a boy. :) :thumbsup

    Sorry for the late reply, but I'd love to help. If they don't want to talk to you, or don't like your jokes, don't talk to them. They probably don't like you, so you shouldn't try to make it better. You should hang out with your other friends. They'll make you feel better about yourself. If you don't have any friends in your class...that's the problem.  That's exactly what happened to me last year. But I started hanging out with the guys more, and they were really nice and had a lot in common with me. Maybe the guys will be nice to you and accept you. I hope I helped you. :)

    Aw, that's sad. I know this is a late review, but I would love to help you make new friends. There are kids that do nasty things at every single school, trust me, you'll never find a perfect school, and if people are reporting this form of bullying, teachers are probably supervising children more, so don't worry about that. :) Now making new friends, ahh, that's very difficult. I can be shy myself, but it honestly depends. What I usually do is observe different groups of people, and see how they interact with each other. If the person seems nice, wait until the time is appropriate and greet them. A friendly "Hi, I'm new, could you maybe show me around, or help me with this, or tell me about this school?" That will start off a conversation. :)  As well, I tend to make jokes, or go to my funny side. I usually make way more friends that way. You could try to make slight jokes, and gradually make them less implied and more clear as you joke around.  If there are any other new kids, or shy kids, definitely talk to them. If there are any kids that look lonely, or sad, maybe take some time to approach them. If they look like the want to be left alone, leave them alone. If you're not sure, it's best if you see someone else interact with them first.  If you're bisexual, that doesn't really matter, and don't bring that fact up in a conversation. That's kind of personal, and when you get a little closer, you can say that. It's not really important, and necessary for people to know that. And it's personal too. So don't bring that up unless you really want to.  I hope i helped you! Sorry for the late advice. >_<

    Several people are having the same problem as you. Whether they're the same gender or not, many people crush on some of their closest friends. So don't feel alone, remember that. I know this is some late advice, but I hope so far things are going good. Many people are feeling the urge of confessing like you. Yes, I think you should confess to her clearly, but when the time is right. She may not like you, but if you really really like her, you should absolutely confess to her. But be aware that confessing to one of your friends can ruin your friendship. You have to be cautious, confess when the time is right. 5 months may be long for you, but honestly, that's a short-term crush. Don't rush your confession, and don't give up unless you think you should. Getting over someone can be incredibly hard too, but you're either going to get over her, or confess to her. When the time is right, confess. When the time never seems to come, I'm sorry, but unfortunately, I think it's best if you get over her, because you have to be 100% sure before you confess to someone. You're risking your friendship to, so think if it's really worth it.  I hope I helped you. :)
