"Sorry to drag you all the way out here," says Rebecca Romijn, bounding into a back booth of a restaurant in the West Valley suburb of Woodland Hills. It's an apt halfway point between Hollywood and the sprawling ranch she shares with her fiance, Crossing Jordan TV actor Jerry O'Connell, way out in Calabasas. "It's kind of ghetto," she continues, apologizing for the office-park atmosphere.

Rebecca Romijn knew she had gained weight, but she wasn't self-conscious about it - until the press began laying into her in the fall of 2004. One paper wondered snarkily if she was "considering being the star in the second season of Fat Actress." Others suggested she was pregnant. Romijn was neither. For the first time since 1991, the year she dropped out of the University of California at Santa Cruz to model, she was taking a breather. Not working much. Not hitting the gym. Not counting calories.

"It was great to see Rebecca Romijn and Rachel Hunter," says Elle Macpherson, one of eight models who grace the all-star cover of the 2006 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. It arrives on newsstands Tuesday (02-14-2006, RRF). "It was like a big family, since so many of us brought our kids. We all went surfing. It was so relaxed and easy," says Macpherson, who was calling while en route from Colorado to Austria for a family ski trip. (Related poll: Vote for your favorite SI cover model)

As a teenager in California, Rebecca Romijn (pronounced "romaine," like the lettuce) was known as The Jolly Blonde Giant. "I was gawky, skinny and had a complex about wearing shorts," recalls the five-foot-eleven former Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover model, who is now an in-demand actress. "I never wore shorts because I thought my legs were too skinny. I would layer a lot too. No matter how hot it was, I’d wear long johns under my pants to make my legs look thicker." So, what did Rebecca do to remedy the situation?

GQ: In a better world, which of the gifts you're modeling in this spread would you most like to find under your Christmas tree?

GQ: And in your stocking
Rebecca Romijn: The earrings.
GQ: Do you ever receive gifts from distant admirers swept off their feet by the Victoria's Secret catalog or the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue?

12-1997: TV Guide


TV Guide: Were you a General Hospital fan when John Stamos played Blackie Parrish back in 1982?
Rebecca Romijn: I was too young. He started on GH when he was 18, so I was 9. I wasn't that aware of him until Full House, and then I didn't watch the show that much, but I remember seeing a couple of episodes and thinking, "That John Stamos is looking fine!"
TVG: How did you and John get together?
