sure, does know her mind. Four years into modelling and Joey Matthew is now looking
at alternate cinema. "I want to be a STAR". But why are models increasingly turning
to films, one asks. "Why not?" she retorts. "Letīs face it. Who doesnīt want to
be a star? And we are privileged for we have access to the big names in the film
industry as we all interact with each other at some level. And when an offer comes,
we want to give a try. Why not?"
Why not, indeed. Making a beginning,
this Piscean took to the stage in a Sunit Tandonīs play īTo Teach His Ownī - A
comedy by a homegrown playwright Nicholas Bernard. However, she says, Bollywood
with its "...running around trees sequence is a no-no. Itīs all about acting for
me. I donīt want Bollywood. Barring Abhishek Bachchan and Hrithik Roshan (my personal
favourites) many of the heroes are half my height. I want to do what I want to
do - trying different things and doing them well."
Besides acting and
modelling, this Delhi-based Malayalee from Kottayam loves to read and cook. "I
like to cook our food, specially the coastal cuisine."
