Playboy Magazine’s October edition included a “Girls of the ACC” section, featuring UNC senior Brittany Leppert, a drama major. Leppert took the year off from school for financial reasons and she plans to return in the 2015-16 academic year.
The Daily Tar Heel Staff Writer Colleen Moir spoke with Leppert, a Wilmington native, to discuss her experiences modeling for Playboy magazine.
THE DAILY TAR HEEL: Why did you model for playboy?
BRITTANY LEPPERT: I’ve always been interested. I would have done it in a heartbeat at any point in my adult life, so I was just really excited for the opportunity — I couldn’t even believe that they were on my campus looking for girls like me to do it, so I was really excited.
DTH: What was the experience like?
BL: It was amazing, actually. The stylist, and the photographer, even, just the representatives from Playboy were all so nice to me and so helpful for trying a new experience I’d never done before, making me feel really awesome and beautiful the whole time. And I felt just really catered to ... it was really great.
