Alessandra Ambrosio Lands TMNT Role

Alessandra Ambrosio is coming to Hollywood.

The famous model will not have to do much because she will play herself in the upcoming film Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2.

Ambrosio was courtside with Will Arnett at a New York Knicks game on Wednesday, but that doesn’t mean they’re dating. They will actually be co-stars and she will play Arnett’s love interest.

Big Test

The 33-year-old Brazilian model has made appearances on shows like Gossip Girl and Entourage, but this will be her first big test in Hollywood.

Of Course, this is not the first time a model has taken her talents to Hollywood. Rene Russo is credited for starting the trend years ago. In the 70s, she was a Cosmopolitan and Vogue girl and eventually made her move to an acting career and appeared in action films like Lethal Weapon 3 & 4. Her latest was the blockbuster film Thor.

Recent Success

One of the most successful beauties in Hollywood is Ukrainian model Milla Jovovich, who has been on more than a hundred magazine covers and is now known for her badass character in the Resident Evil franchise.

The latest has been Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who replaced Megan Fox in the third Transformers film released back in 2011.

The famous model will probably not become a badass action film character anytime soon, but she will definitely bring more audience to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 film. After all, who isn’t a fan of beautiful models being featured in films that everyone loves.


TMNTIn this film, the turtles return to save the city from a dangerous threat. The only two confirmed characters are Ambrosio and Arnett. With rumors of old TMNT characters Beebop and Rocksteady making an appearance, it is not known who will play these two.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is scheduled to hit theaters June 3, 2016.
