Paulina Porizkova on ATWT

In an interview with TV Guide Magazine, the former cover girl dished about her character and her upcoming time on the soap opera...

On the offer: Totally out of the blue. I’d never watched soaps or thought about being on them. Now, after doing ATWT, I’m hooked on all of them. I’m a complete addict!

On her character: At first I was like, wait a minute, do they want me to play me, an aging supermodel? Because if that’s the case it’s a no-go. But it turns out Clarissa is an evil conwoman who comes in to destroy people’s lives. I love it! It’s very cool, except she doesn’t quite succeed.

On Simon and Clarissa: [Simon is] giving it all up for the love of a good woman and Clarissa is furious. She just can’t believe it because, frankly, she doesn’t know what love is. She’s so me! She tries to lure Simon into that one job they had going but he doesn’t want to do it.
