Darcy Donavan Interview
Darcy Donavan was born in Miami, Florida to a young newlywed mother. Her family was, as she described it "just scraping by", as they lived in a small, one-bedroom apartment. Darcy's parents divorced when she was very young and from that point on she lived with her mother. Her mother once said in an interview, she has been an actress since birth and indeed this is true, since Darcy was always imitating commercials, as well as, singing and performing for her mother and other relatives. She always wanted to lighten the mood of an overall very difficult situation and would try to cheer herself and her mother up because of the fact that at times her mother struggled to support herself and her young daughter. Her mother said that she had the potential to grow up to be a great comedian, because she was always telling jokes and making everyone laugh and have a good time. Darcy warmed hearts as she made her acting debut, at the age of eight, in a national commercial where she beat out over 500 other kids. From that moment on, Darcy's future in acting was sealed.
Over the years Darcy has entered many talent and beauty contests winning the honor of Ms. Nashville, Tennessee. Darcy starred in music videos and other commercials, becoming very well recognized in the entertainment business of her hometown in Nashville. During this time she began touring as a singer as well, opening up for many well-known artists as she toured the country. Her first album broke gold record status in Canada and began grabbing worldwide exposure.
Darcy then moved to Los Angeles and was quickly cast in several top name movies such as "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind", "Showtime" with Robert Deniro, and Eddie Murphy and "Tomcats" with Jerry O'Connell, and Shannon Elizabeth. Darcy also landed other roles in T.V. shows such as NBC's "My Name is Earl", NBC's "Las Vegas" with James Caan and ABC's soap opera "Passions". One of her most recognized roles was "Sherry", in the comedic blockbuster film "Anchorman" starring Will Ferrell. This role brought Darcy attention all over the world. Even though she has worked hard to achieve her successes, you will always hear her giving thanks to God for where she is at today.
In addition to her acting career, Darcy co-owns an entertainment company in Los Angeles and freely donates her time to causes that are close to her heart such as the fight against domestic violence, drug abuse awareness programs and animal rights.
Darcy currently resides in the Los Angeles area with her four dogs and two lizards, and also has a residence in Nashville, TN. Along with pursuing her career in movies, and television, she has also just released a new pop album, which is rising on the pop charts. Darcy is currently slated to star in two more feature films which go into production later this year and has recently launched her new website and web television show "DARCY TV" with over a million viewers a month tuning in to find out what she is doing next.
Darcy, how are you doing today? I am doing GREAT:) Thank you for asking.
You've been on this page before. How long have you been on the net? Yes, I have been on your page before and thank you by the way. I have been on the net for a long time.
What do you consider your biggest modeling accomplishments? Hmmm... That is hard to say, I was on the album cover as a brunette on AC/DC's International Tribute Album. That was great! A lot of my friends and family got a really big kick out of that and thought it was the greatest thing in the world. (It's really just because they love AC/DC) hahaha lol.
I have won titles from 'Most Photogenic' , to Ms. Nashville,TN and Miss Hawaiian Tropic. I was also in numerous national and international magazines so I would say that I can't really choose what is my "BIGGEST" accomplishment. I am a Type A personality and I always like to top whatever I have done in the past and make it better. So its hard for me sometimes to sit and relax with all of my accomplishments. I keep thinking about what else can I do.

So, how many hits does your site have a month? I am really excited about my new web site www.darcydonavan.com. We are getting over half a million hits a month AND GROWING! It really blows my mind! Even my brother who works at a large insurance agency said he couldn't believe my numbers and the hits my web site is getting, and that made me feel really good.:) I was so happy to see that finally all my blood, sweat and tears over the years is finally paying off. YEAH!!;)
What do you think of our latest video? I think it's hilarious!!! I loved the music.
What are your measurements? 36-24-36 (Yes, I have a butt, and I am glad I do!)
What do you think are your best features? Wow, honestly, I don't really know. I do like my eyes. (Thanks, Mom);)
Can you tell us something about your likes and dislikes? Sure, how much time do we have? Hahaha Just kidding:)
What I like - I like good, honest and nice people. I LOVE when someone smells good, women or men, I just love the smell of great cologne or perfume. OH! and I love minty fresh breath. (All my friends and family make fun of me and say in another life I was a basset hound because my sense of smell is really acute). I also LOVE, and I mean LOVE, massages. Between filming movies, touring and studio time, I try and get two a week if I can. SnowMan gives the best massages!
I also love my family and friends and I will protect them like a lioness with her cubs. I guess that is my Scorpio nature. I love to have parties and spoil all my family and friends.
What I dislike - I dislike big egos, stuck-up people and people who are generally mean. I dislike people who smell or who are just plain unhygienic. I mean, if they don't have the money then I will give you the money to go the Dollar Store to get you some soap, toothpaste and/or perfume or cologne. No Excuses, 3 bucks.:) Also, I dislike complainers and know it all's. I would love for the United States to delegate and add an additional State called 'THE A**HOLE STATE" and put all the egotistical, mean, stuck-up, complaining and smelly people in that state and let them all live together. I think the rest of the world would be a happier place.
Seriously though, is being nice to one another that hard?
Can you tell us something about yourself that not all of your fans know? I am a pretty black and white as a person. If you are deserving of it I will love you, but if you are not, I won't. Simple as that. I am pretty passionate in everything I do. Everyone close to me knows that if I am your friend I will go to the ends of the earth for you, give you the blood from my veins and the shirt off my back. However, if you have done something really bad to hurt me, my family or friends then lets just say all bets are off. Don't let the blond hair and big boobs fool ya. I will stand up for myself and for what's right and just. People that are respectful are treated with the utmost of respect. It's great for the fans because no matter what I do, I will always make sure that I send them the best.
What do you think of our website, ninjapimp.com? I love ninjapimp.com.,I think its a very informative and fun site. I know there are a lot of my fans who really love to go to your site.
What are your favorite movies? I love movies that are true stories or are based on actual events, such as, "Remember the Titans", "Rudy", "Goal" and "Pursuit of Happyness." It really helps me to put my life in perspective and appreciate what I have.
Where do you see yourself in five years? President of the United States! Hahaha Just kidding. I would like to see myself on the cover of Forbes magazine between Donald Trump, Oprah and Bill Gates with a huge grin on my face. I see my entertainment company being dominating in Hollywood, as well as for myself, being an Internationally renowned Singer, Actress, Producer and Writer. Kinda like Ice Cube. Rock on Ice Cube!
What are your turn-ons? Hmmm. Turn-Ons. I am a very romantic and affectionate person so I would want someone who is like that as well. I am also a dominate person so I need to be around someone who can handle a strong woman. I am a southern belle so being a gentlemen certainly goes A LONG way in my book. Opening doors, taking me to dinner and saying Yes ma'am manners is such a turn-on. I get so sick of men who claim that every time they are nice, the girls they date dump them for jerks who treat them bad. I say it is GREAT you got rid of them and now they are someone else's problem and not yours.
Hey, I want to nice guy. Give me a sweet, good-hearted geeky guy any day and I will take him over the drop dead gorgeous a**hole guy anytime!
Have your fans ever seny you any weird requests? What are some of the weirdest? All of my fans are great. A few are a little off the wall but most are just really funny/sweet. I had one fan who wanted me to take a letter and rub it all over my body and send it to him. Another guy sent me a check for $5,000.00 and asked if I would give him a pair of my pantyhose so he could wear it as a headband. Pretty funny,huh;) I also had a female fan who wanted a lock of my blond hair and along with it she wanted my hair barrette and hairbrush.
What do you consider as one of your most embarrassing moments? Oh, Lord. You had to ask that one. Well here it goes. True Story. I wanted to do something sweet for my ex-boyfriend for his birthday and so I bought a sexy bra and panty set. The bra was one for those expensive wonder bras with the silicone gel pads(to give me a nice lift;). At the time the price for it was like $149. I arranged for us to go to dinner and afterward I surprised him and took him horseback riding. Well, in the midst of our horseback riding, the instructor broke us out in a canter, which means a RUN basically. Now I forgot I had those damn booby pads in and they started to come out of my bra as we started galloping. One flew out and after just paying $149, I wasn't going to let it get away that easy. I flew off my horse to get it and the horse ran back to the barn .
The instructor asked me why I jumped off my horse and told me I shouldn't have done that. She told me she would get my horse back. So I panicked and then told her I lost my diamond bracelet and that is why I got off my horse, (Yeah, I know,stupid lie). Anyway, I acted like I was looking for the bracelet in the grass and then I grabbed the booby pad and put it in the bushes. I figured I would get it back when we got back from our trail ride. Then after our hour long ride, I asked the instructor to let me look one more time for my bracelet and she said fine. I went behind the bushes where I stashed it so I could put it back in my bra real quick. Wouldn't you know, a squirrel had bitten a huge chunk off the silicone pad and is was all warped, chewed and sticky. I thought whatever I didn't pay this much money not to wear these damn things. I put the pad in my bra and my boob looked all weird and distorted. So I come out from behind the tree with one bigger distorted looking boob and I acted like I found my diamond bracelet. My ex-boyfriend laughed so hard he fell off his horse. Moral of the story- don't wear bras with removable pads horseback riding:)
Do you like working with anyone in particular? I have gotten along with everyone I have worked with. I really enjoyed working with Will Ferrell, Christina Applegate,Paul Rudd and the director Adam McKay of "Anchorman".
They were a lot of fun to be around, and they enjoyed me doing my improv. thang. I also am really good friends with director Jack Edward Sawyers. Jack is a great guy and like a big brother to me. We have a lot of fun. I am going to be the lead in his next movie "Devil's Gold" and I can't wait.
We have so much fun while working together I get so sad when the project wraps up because you have become a little family and once the project is over you miss seeing everyone on a daily basis.
Is there anything else that you would like to say to our fans? Keep it real NinjaPimpsters!!!! Check out my site at www.darcydonavan.com and remember ninjas are better than pirates.
