|Jason Aaron Baca and Jennifer Love Hewitt|
Today I am interviewing Cover Model JASON BACA! Please join me in welcoming him here to Heart of Romance.
***LEAVE A COMMENT WITH YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS AND YOU COULD WIN AN AUTOGRAPHED PHOTO OF JASON!***
SARAH- Jason, Hi and welcome.
JASON- It’s a pleasure to be here.
SARAH- Let’s begin by asking how you got into the modeling business.
JASON- Well I was on location in Ft.Ross,Ca where I’d been doubling for one of the main actors in I Know What You Did Last Summer. The movies lead photographer brought me over and asked if he could take a few snap shots of me. Of course I agreed “nervously” but it turned out to be my first big break into all this. I recall standing there acting cool and seeing the main actors looking over at me wondering “who is this guy? I don’t remember him being a part of the movie do you?”
SARAH- Where else would we be able to see you? Ads? Commercials?
JASON- There are a ton of ads out there, they pop up out of nowhere. Lately though, I’ve been doing a lot of exercise routines for the various fitness magazines such as Men’s Workout, Exercise & Health, Men’s Health Singapore, and Canada’s Fitness Magazine “Optimyz” Besides that, there are a lot of others that would take a long time to list. (Those google searches come in handy!)
SARAH- How do you keep in shape?
JASON- Excellent question! I always stay inside a balanced diet. I believe in taking quality care of myself all year long. I hear a lot of people say, “why don’t you take some time off and live it up a little?” And my response is that I’ve tried that and I don’t like how I get. I feel depressed, melancholy, like I awt to be doing something with myself.
I make sure to perform a rigorous exercise 1 ½ hours per day. Whatever body part I’m working, I make sure to exercise it to the point of exhaustion. I imagine my body looking like the Statue of David (only slightly better.)
SARAH- How many book covers have you graced?
JASON- Currently I’m on number 88 with about 4 more pending.
SARAH- Is modeling the only thing you are doing at the moment?
JASON- Yes besides working a stable job 8-5pm. But I’d like to focus on the word “only” as I put my heart and soul into modeling for these covers. If it was something I didn’t take very serious then I may as well not bother going to a good hair stylist, get facial treatments on a regular basis, or go to the gym and exercise my muscles. So yes modeling “is” what I’m doing at the moment in this life I live in. If I had 5 different things going on like most people then I’d probably dabble at each one and not give it my 100% attention. Not a good way to do things.
SARAH- Are there any charities you are involved in and if so, can you share a link with us so that we might help?
JASON- No I don’t have any charities that I’m involved in… But if I was to be in one, it would be to help fight animal cruelty. Or help humane societies across America.
SARAH- Will you share with us the story of how you met Jennifer Love Hewitt and what was it like working with her?
JASON- It was a memorable experience. We met on location for I Know What You Did Last Summer. I actually didn’t know of her career when we met so I talked to her like I did any other person walking down the street. She liked it. At the time she was really into her singing and was releasing a CD called “Let’s go Bang” so she sang while looking through her honey wagon window.
She was a very cheerful girl and enjoyed constantly playing Hanson’s Doo Woop song with candles all lit up in her cabin. Being around her was a lot of fun for me because for the first time in my life it taught me what real confidence looked like in this business. Her and the other 3 all had it in their eyes and in the way they walked. As I studied them, I took mental notes and knew that if I wanted to be a standout, I would need that attitude and believe in myself as she did.
SARAH- Tell us one thing about you that we wouldn’t know otherwise.
JASON- Hmm okay… have you ever seen Rocky III? Well I see Jimmy Thomas as Rocky (The champ) and me as Clubber Lang (the contender) He is on top, the main guy to watch. I am the guy wanting a shot at the title though. The guy that is exercising ferociously as he thinks about his shot and chance to be the champ. It’s what I love about this business. That you have someone that is ahead of your game and that you have to constantly do something towards improving yourself to get to that level. I absolutely love this! So there is your secret..
YOUR STATS- AGE- somewhere in the 30s
SARAH- Last but not least, I would like to ask you a short answer questions.
FAVORITE MEAL- Swordfish meatloaf in an onion marmalade sauce.
SILK OR LACE- Silk.. Lace is too complicated.
BEACH OR MOUNTIANS- How about a mountainy beach?
SUNSET OR SUNRISE- Sunrise
HOT OR COLD- Hot n Spicy
LUCK OR DESTINY- Destiny! Find those dreams and conquer them
FAVORITE PASTIME- Baseball of course
FEATURE ON A WOMAN YOU FIND MOST ATTRACTIVE- her bangs
FAVORITE PLACE TO VACATION- Somewhere over the rainbow.. Because if happy little bluebirds fly… beyond the rainbows why oh why….. can’t I?
SARAH- Thank you Jason for being with us here today! We are very on excited to get to know you a little better. Good luck in your future and we hope to see you on many more book covers!
JASON- Thank you very much for having me Sarah. This has been a lot of fun doing the interview
