Behind the Scenes with Playmate Josie Canseco

Some life-changing words
I once read a quote that went something like “The true mark of maturity is when somebody hurts you and you try to understand their situation instead of trying to hurt them back.” Since reading that, my perspective on people’s motives and actions has changed. Now I try to see where they’re coming from instead of acting defensively.

My typical Friday night
After a week of going to castings, running errands and doing hour-long sessions at the gym, I like to come home, throw on my sweats and turn on Friends or Family Guy. In fact, if I had to pick one nonessential item to have in my earthquake emergency kit, a pair of my favorite sweatpants would definitely be it.

Look me in the eyes
I think my eyes are the first thing people notice about me. I’ve always been told they are one of my most powerful features.

Earworm of the moment
I’m still listening to “Dangerous Woman” by Ariana Grande. Her voice is just insane. I don’t think anyone can deny her talent.

living in the digital age
The best thing about being a woman in 2016 is our power and independence. At the same time, I think apps are giving away too much information about people’s every move. I fear technology is invading the idea of romance. Sometimes I wish I were dating in an era when people couldn’t text and Snapchat.

If I could meet anyone
Jim Carrey has been my favorite actor ever since I can remember. He is such an inspiration, from his sense of humor to his worldly perspective. Without a doubt, The Truman Show is the most underrated movie of all time.

A piece of advice
Always remember that being a kind, warmhearted person will get you further than being cold and cruel. Don’t fight fire with fire.
