Did you always know you wanted to be an actress?
Yes, but it wasn’t until my 18th birthday that I decided to chase that dream.
What was it like working on Two and a Half Men?
It was fast-paced and exciting. As soon as I walked onto set, I was asked to sign 100 copies of the series’ final script. What an honour!
Can you explain your newest role on Public Morals? Have you met Steven?
Public Morals is a show produced by Steven Spielberg. I didn’t meet Steven on set that day, but I have met him on several other occasions at Hollywood events.
Caitlin, have you ever visited South Africa?
Yes, I went for the month of July last year and stayed in East London. I was there visiting friends for the whole month. My favourite part of South Africa is Nahoon Reef.
Tell us 3 things no one knows about you?
My parents divorced when I was five, I love handmade jewellery, and I can walk on stilts.
Do you consider yourself sexy?
Sometimes I feel sexy! At work, when I am modelling, I definitely feel sexy. I get my makeup and hair done and I feel like a character, a sexier version of myself. Every girl has a sexy woman waiting to be uncovered/unleashed.
Tell us something men don’t know about women?
Men have a lot to learn about women! I don’t even know where to start.
Is it true you’re currently working on some personal projects here in South Africa?
Yes, I visit South Africa frequently for work as I’m currently working to build two clean water wells, one in Ghana, and one in Haiti. The Ghana well is being actively worked on, their website is www.geneorsitywater.org.
Who inspired you coming up in your career?
Audrey Hepburn and all the Victoria’s Secret models from 2004-2009 were inspirational for me.
What’s your take on the mandatory 3-day-no-call rule?
It’s annoying, don’t waste time! If you like a woman, chase her!
Which piece of men’s clothing is the most important?
Their reading glasses if they wear them. I love men in glasses.
What’s your biggest turn off?
Bad hygiene and rudeness are my biggest turn offs, for obvious reasons…
What makes a man immature?
Selfishness, a “player” attitude, and not taking care of his family, or children.
