Who are you?
Alyssa Maria Arce. I am Hispanic (Honduran), Irish, English, and a bit of Indian. North Myrtle Beach, SC. I currently live out of a suit case…but plan on moving to LA
Which 5 words best describe you?
Bubbly, vivacious, outgoing, playful, and sensual
Where and what did you study in school?
I went to North Myrtle Beach High School, and graduated in 2010. From there, I started modeling.
When and how did you get into modeling?
I started modeling when I was 17. I went to an open call that Wilhelmina had and they signed me on the spot.
You recently shot with Terry Richardson. What was he like? Was it any different than working with other photographers?
Terry was an amazing photographer to shoot with. Terry has his own unique style but so do other photographers. He is such a legend and I’m blessed to have worked with him.
What are the differences between modeling for Ford and Wilhelmina compared to Playboy?
When you pose for Playboy, the photos reflect more of your sensual personality. When you work with a modeling agency, they book you on jobs that may have no resemblance to you.
How did you land a spot in Nick Hissom’s music video for If I Die Young? What is the video about? Can we expect to see more cameos from you?
Nick’s manager asked me to be a part of the video. The video is about two young people at a party that see each other and crush and adventure into the beach and desert. It will be an amazing video!
As a huge soccer fan, do you have plans to head down to Brazil for the World Cup?
Yes, I hope to attend the World Cup!
If you took me out for a day in North Myrtle Beach what would we do? Where would we eat? Where would we grab a drink?
If I showed you around North Myrtle Beach, I would first show you our amazing beach. One of my favorite restaurants is Collectors Cafe in Myrtle Beach, and for drinks…well, there are so many good places! Depends on what atmosphere you prefer.
What has been your favourite personal accomplishment so far?
It would have to be all the accomplishments that this past year has blessed me with. From living in Capetown to becoming a Playboy Playmate!
If you could hook up with any 3 famous people, who would they be?
Brad Pitt because of what an amazing man he is; Ryan Gosling because he always gets my attention in movies and I love his music; David Beckham because he is a legend soccer player and I love his tattoos.
What kind of things do you do to keep your stunning figure?
Healthy eating as much as possible and a bedroom workout.
What is one question no one has asked you in an interview that you wish they had?
Now that I have done Playboy, I think I’ve been asked everything!
If we pressed play on your playlist what would we hear?
You would hear Indie music…but I listen to ALL kinds of music
If you could have starred in any movie, which one would it be?
I would say Transformers. The whole set would have been amazing to be on and Michael Bay is a killer director.
What 3 things annoy you the most?
Having to repeat myself so many times, superficial people, and egotism
Is there anything that people are surprised to find out about you?
Yes, that I actually am a down to earth and easy going girl. Not just another model.
What was the last thing you laughed out loud at?
My very goofy dog…just looking at him makes you want to laugh!
What would the title of your autobiography be?
“She Said She’ll Do It, So She Did.”
What do you have planned for the future?
To love, live and travel the world.
Any memorable quote or final words for your fans and the readers of Lion’s Den U?
In life, you can do whatever you put your mind to. Don’t listen to what people say if it’s something to bring you down.
