The January 2015 featured spotlight interview is with model and interior designer and decorator Elle Patille.
Where did you grow up and where do you call home?
Born and raised in Toronto, Canada but recently moved to a ghost town and into a well known haunted house outside of the city. However, I can’t say I spend a lot of time in Toronto these days since I’m always on the search for a CRAZY new adventure.
How did you get started in modeling?
I was introduced to modelling as a child pageant star at the age of seven, which lead me into a career of runway modeling overseas as a teen, then… Playboy and numerous other publications.
Is there something specific about “sexy modelling” that excites you?
Sexy for some women means heels and pretty dresses. For myself, it’s just being in front of the camera no matter what the attire.
You’ve been in top rated magazines like Playboy, Maxim, and other notables. Which appearances have had the greatest impact on your career?
Of all the publications, Playboy has allowed me to speak out on charities very near and dear to me which include children, animals and the homeless worldwide.
Do you have any other special talents we should know about?
My true love talent is when I’m working as an interior designer and decorator.
How long can you stay away from your cell phone without going crazy?
Weeks at a time.
Give us a fun fact about you.
I’ve hand raised a Jaguar, climbed 12 active volcanos and visited 5 of the creepiest places on the planet.
Top 3 most common questions that people ask you?
“Are you single?”
“Have you met Hugh Hefner?”
“Can I join you at the next Playboy mansion party?”
Do you have a philosophy of life?
Examine what you tolerate.
If you could meet anyone, who would it be?
Not only have I met this individual but I’m proud to be on the founders circle of their Child Soldiers Initiative. That person is Romeo Dallaire. He’s the Force Commander of the United Nations whom attempted to stop the Rwanda genocide and was directly responsible for saving tens of thousands of people.
Worst pick-up line used on you?
Yes, I remember one quite well. While I was at the gym, a young lad approached me and asked “Excuse me miss, but would you happen to know what material your shirt is?” After replying that I wasn’t sure, he kindly asked if he could check the back label. After checking he took a step back and said “That’s what I thought… girlfriend material.”.
