It’s not easy taking over Pamela Anderson’s most famous role as CJ Parker in the upcoming film adaptation of the hit ’90s series “Baywatch” — just ask Kelly Rohrbach.
The 27-year-old model told The Daily Star that slipping into the iconic red swimsuit was a challenge.
“You won’t believe how many fittings it took to get the swimsuit right,” said Rohrbach to the UK-based publication.
“It was re-tailored like 10 times to make my legs look as long as they can and my bum look as good as possible, but I am really happy with the end result.”
“The red Baywatch swimsuit is iconic,” she added. “When I had my first fitting I guess it felt a bit like Superman putting on his cape for the first time."
Rohrbach also said that she and her co-stars, including Zac Efron and Dwayne Johnson, made sure to hit the gym as much as possible to get their beach bodies camera-ready for the film.
“Everybody worked out hard to get their beach bodies — the guys and the girls,” she explained. “I love to eat, so I worked out really hard. I was running at least five times a week, plus I was doing a lot of weights and boxing classes. The great thing was that because I was doing such high-intensity workouts I got to eat steak every night during filming!”
The movie reboot is scheduled to be released in May and will feature original star David Hasselhoff.
