Behind the Seams: Q&A with Actress/Model Angela Bellotte
February 27, 2014
I am especially excited to take you Behind the Seams™ with model and actress, Angela Bellotte. I cast Angela for our Spring 2009 campaign. Angela is the epitome of a Boy Meets Girl® model – she’s confident, smart, absolutely gorgeous and so much FUN! It’s no wonder that those images from that shoot remain some of our most highly publicized photos.
Angela recently became involved with a company called Pepper and Paul™, which provides cinematic experiences to online shoppers and is excited as she will be part of the cast in their upcoming short films. Pepper and Paul features designers and merchants that focus on giving back to the world and creating a compassionate, sustainable future. In my interview with Angela, I asked her what her proudest career moment has been and she said, “I just had this moment in November at the premier for the Delivery Man, which was my first movie as an actress, and the first time I have ever seen myself on the big screen. I was with my girlfriend in the theater and when we saw my face on the screen we both screamed! I felt like a movie star.”
I am so proud of Angela and love watching people I have worked with rise and shine! I will leave with you Angela’s favorite movie quote from Amy Adams (Sydney Posser) in American Hustle, “I was broke, fearless, with nothing to lose. And my dream, more than anything, was to become anyone else other than who I was.”

a few other questions I asked Angela that I wanted to share with you:
what have you learned about the work force that you didn’t know in college?
Angela: Your college education can only take you so far….its your passion, persistence and courage that will move mountains, open doors, and inspire others.
what is the hardest part of your job? Highlight one or all that apply!
a. lack of sleep
b. long hours/crammed schedule
c. find a good balance between personal life and work
I love my job. All of these nights without enough sleep, the stress of not enough hours in a day, lonely days on the road…. it is all worth it to me. We all need to experience some type of hardship, some suffering to really appreciate the end result.
