Abbey Lee talks Jennifer Aniston, tattoo regret & her Superga shoot

Model turned actress Abbey Lee Kershaw is the face of Superga. It’s the perfect union; what with Abbey Lee being uber cool, stylish and knows what she wants – including the look of the ad campaign for Superga’s AW16 collection (pictured below) She’s also about to become a household name thanks to a prospering acting career.

Over the next 12 months we’ll see Abbey Lee in two movies starring alongside Hollywood heavyweights; Jennifer Aniston and some guy called Idris Elba (not sure if you’ve heard of him!?). We grabbed two minutes to talk to the former Victoria’s Secret catwalk model to discuss her new movies, her tattoo regret, piercings and of course her new Superga favourites…

Hi Abbey, how did your collaboration with Superga come about?
Superga approached my team about being involved and were interested in me having a creative say in how it was shot so I was excited to get involved.

What pair are your faves from the new collection? 
I really love classic Superga’s. I always opt for the black or white chunky soles.

In the ad campaign your look is really dramatic – would you do vampy lips for your regular day-to-day life?
No. I think at night time, yes, but I used to wear vampy make up a lot when I was younger but not so much now. 

It’s been such an exciting year for you – and your movie career is just getting bigger and bigger. What’s the best thing about acting? 
I’m not sure how to narrow it down to one thing… Maybe that when I’m on set I don’t want to be doing anything else. 

Is it something you’ve always wanted to do?
No, it only came about in my mind after booking Mad Max. It was sort of an accident.

Do you think there’s perhaps even more pressure for “models” in movies? A certain expectation for example…
I guess. I don’t care to take notice of that stuff. I love cinema and I want to do a good job regardless.

Jennifer Aniston is Hollywood royalty – what was your experience on set like with her?
She’s incredibly sweet. She’s friendly and open and has a really bright presence in a room. I loved Friends as a kid, so yes I was excited to meet her. 

What will be your role in the movie?
I play a prostitute who has been hired to pretend to be someone’s girlfriend for a night.

You’re also in a movie with Idris Elba – does he get your Bond vote?
100%. I don’t have any scenes with him so sadly I didn’t meet him.

You’re quite the hair chameleon – what’s been your favourite hairstyle? And is there a hair colour you’re keen to try?
I want to try red so bad. I loved white hair.

You have loads of tattoos – which is your favourite and why?
I hate them all.

What is your favourite piercing and do you plan to get more and where?
I like my belly ring. It reminds me of the 90s. Wont be getting anymore.

Is it true that you’re a drummer as well – we can’t cope with all of your skills.
I’m not a drummer. Wikipedia lies.
