Interview with Sunshine Shen — Playboy Playmate
Sunshine Shen is a 25-year old model residing in Beverly Hills, California.
How would you introduce yourself to our readers?
I was born in Harbin China, grew up in Florida and currently reside in the beautiful Beverly Hills California! Although I feel like everyone always expects my life to be filled with excitement 24/7 or I’m a huge party girl but in reality I’m actually such a home body lol. I enjoy watching HBO reruns and I’m obsessed with Game of Thrones! Of course when I do attend an event I usually like to go for a cause, for example I often host the ‘Babes in Toyland’ charities in Hollywood. Hobby wise, I’m like many bunnies, I appreciate the finer things in life, including luxury travels, upscale shopping, fine dinning, among others and think I am a princess.
When, how and why did you first get involved in the modeling industry?
I first became very interested in modeling when I was selected to be a Hooter Calendar girl in 2014 however, I was unfortunately let go unfairly by the company and interestingly enough my co workers at the time did not like me very much so I set my mind on becoming a Playmate to prove everyone wrong. So I did.
What are your personal and professional goals? Where do you see yourself in five to ten years?
I would like to further my career as a Playmate in the next 3 years then I would like to start my own family. My dream would’ve to be becoming a mother to my own little princesses. I’m absolutely obsessed with children I love their innocence and vivid imaginations. Sometimes I feel like I’m such a naive little girl on the inside myself.
How often are you modeling and what does it usually consist of?
I often shoot for International Playboy spreads, unlike the US edition, we’re still upholding the traditional Playboy value of artistic nudes and centerfolds. Although I do have a shy personality however I feel the most confident posing nude for Playboy. I am currently working on a project with Maxim as well which I am very excited about. Other than shooting my career is consisted of glamorous Playboy Parties. I was selected by Hef himself to be one of his Painted Ladies at the most recent Midsummer Night’s Dream party and have been painted for Hef many times before! Other than that I host many charity events in LA and make appearances in Hollywood clubs.
Please tell us about the best and/or worst experiences you’ve had so far in modeling.
The best experience I’ve had in modeling would be meeting all the incredible people that helped me getting my career off the ground and is very supportive of me until this day. Ever since I became a Playmate my life has changed so much I can’t be thankful enough of all the wonderful things that has happened to me and all the amazing friends I have made along the way!
Have you had anything funny, embarrassing or completely out of the ordinary happen during your modeling career?
I can’t really think of any particular event now that would describe any of those things, however I can promise you life as a bunny is always exciting and filled with drama and lots of laughter, especially when we all band together!. I truly love every moment!
Is there anything you would change about the modeling industry if you could?
Not really anything I could think of, I think there’s a special field of modeling for everyone from erotica to runway there’s a place for everyone so who am I to change the order of the industry?!
Do you practice any sports and what do you typically eat? Please elaborate on the importance of nutrition and exercise in your life.
Believe it or not I actually do not exercise as often as people would expect me to, I mean, my measurements are 28E-18-32. However I am HUGE in healthy eating! I try to eat Vegan and Raw whenever I can and try to only eat chicken and fish as my main source of protein. I also completely cut out dairy products from my diet. And like everyone in LA I am obsessed with green juices especially the ones from Pressed Juicery! So instead of coffee in the morning I just drink half a bottle of their Vanilla Almond Coffee & a bottle of Green 1.5 instead!
Please share something people don’t know about you.
I speak perfect Mandarin Chinese and I can translate some Latin. I’m a big video gamer and always sleep naked lol.
Would you change anything about yourself?
I feel like I can always improve myself into better versions of me. I think as people we should all be able to make our own decisions when it comes to altering ourselves!
What features do you look for in a partner?
I love a well groomed and successful gentlemen, although I’m such a tiny little package I love a taller man. It makes me melt when a man who is serious and ambitious in his career can unwind and be playful with me and call me I’m his little princess. Bottom line, I love to be spoiled so my man must be confident and successful in every single thing that he does.
