TEN STUPID QUESTIONS WITH ALEX VALLEY
by Tom Peaks @MrPeaksNValleys
He’s exploded onto the modeling scene…charming and engaging fans with his sunny personality and handsome good looks. Alex Valley is a small town boy making good in the big city. Based in New York, Alex is with Soul Artist Management in NYC and Front Model Management in Miami.
Alex humored me and sat down to ponder Ten Stupid Questions:
Sexy actors born in North Dakota who started out as models:
–Josh Duhamel (Minot)
–Kellan Lutz (Dickinson)
–Alan Ritchson (Grand Forks)
Which of these hunks’ careers would you most want to emulate? Why?
Damn, I’m happy to even be in the same categories as these guys! I’d have to say Josh Duhamel, he’s like the ruler of ND. He seems so chill and relaxed, too. I feel like I could hang out at his house all day, not do a whole lot, and still have an awesome day. If somebody wants to introduce me to my own Fergie, that would be fantastic.
If all of the world’s a stage, where does the audience sit?
Probably in the seats? Who wants to sit on the floor–I know I don’t. I’m not sure what this question is asking, but hopefully I’m the one on the stage. Just please don’t make me dance or sing. I’m terrible at both. What I got in good looks I definitely lost in dance and singing ability. Just trust me, you don’t want to see it.
So, Alex, when you shot with legendary supermodel Christie Brinkley, did she let you drive her red Ferrari from National Lampoon’s Vacation?
I wish! I actually didn’t entirely know who she was until after the Barney’s NY shoot… then again, I didn’t know what Barney’s NY was until the first day of the campaign either!
Actress Brooke Shields was also at that Bruce Weber shoot. So, did you show up for work wearing your Blue Lagoon loincloth just in case it was a secret casting for a Lagoon remake?
I’m happy you asked. I did! Everyone thought it was weird of me but now I have the role! Don’t tell anyone about the remake though!
Pick one: Ability to fly or be invisible? Why?
FLY, without a doubt.. Do you know how much easier it would be to get to castings/North Dakota/ Miami/ Tahiti/ everywhere else I want to go!?!
If you could have personally witnessed a major historical event, what would it be? A pop culture event?
My answer may be biased, because of my current location, but New York City really amazes me. The public transportation and the way everything is set up is really the reason the city is so massive and only continues to grow. It would have been interesting to live here over the last 100 years and watch everything change–and maybe help it change! A pop culture event would have to be something like Woodstock that was truly iconic for an entire decade of people.
You grew up in North Dakota like 4 counties removed from the Canadian border. Did you ever get so pissed off at America for something that you actually did move to Canada until you calmed down?
Haha I have not. In high school, my rent/ food/ bills/ stress were all at 0. I can’t say that anything ever made me mad enough to want to leave all of that and try to fend for myself before I graduated at 17!
Alex, you’re bold and gutsy. Putting yourself out there also means you have fallen flat more than once. What’s the most embarrassing thing you have ever done?
I like to do this thing where I see really pretty girls and all of the sudden get clumsy and mumble. It’s pretty great… until you knock over a glass or two.. onto that person.
Had you ever worn a speedo-style bikini brief prior to modeling? How do you feel about skimpy swim briefs today?
I had not! I actually wore baggy Hurley board shorts all of the time! That’s still the only way to go in ND. I am trying to get used to the less fabric here, but it just feels so foreign to me to wear that outside that I’d say it’s still a work in progress!
Your fan base is exploding! What else would you like to tell your fans?
I love you all! I’m so happy with the snapchats, tweets, likes, dm’s, and re-blogs I get. Sometimes it’s hard to keep up with all that I am doing plus social media, but you make it all worth it! Thank you for everything!
