Model and actress Brooklyn Danielle Decker is best known for her roles in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issues, including the 2010 cover. She’s appeared on Chuck, Ugly Betty, The League, and Royal Pains, as well as working for Victoria’s Secret’s “Swim” collection in 2010.
Before becoming a Netflix series regular, the model made her feature film debut in Just Go with It (2011) and went on to star in Battleship (2012), What to Expect When You’re Expecting (2012), and Grace and Frankie (2012).
Brooklyn Decker: Net Worth and Salary
With a net worth of $40 million, Brooklyn Decker is an American fashion model and actress. Her net worth is based on her marriage to Andy Roddick, a retired professional tennis player, whom she has been married to since 2009. Brooklyn and Andy paid $1.1 million for a New York City apartment a year before their wedding. They continue to be the owners of this property.
The couple paid an undisclosed amount for a 1.8-acre lakefront property in Austin in November 2009, just a few months after marrying. The house, which includes a nearly 9,000-square-foot home, was listed for $12.5 million in 2013. They were unable to find a buyer and were forced to take the listing off the market.
Brooklyn and Andy bought a 2.75-acre plot of land in North Carolina for $300,000 in 2012. They paid $3.7 million for a 15-acre lot in Austin in July 2013. Then they proceeded to construct a mansion on the property. The couple tried to sell the house for $6 million in 2018, but were only able to get $4.65 million in September of 2019. To say the couple made a lot of money from their real estate deals is an understatement.
Brooklyn Decker: Career and Professional Life
Brooklyn Decker moved to New York City after graduating from high school to pursue a modeling career. She’d only been in town a few months when she auditioned for the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition, which she landed the following year. The 22-year-old returned to Swimsuit Edition in 2007 to host a behind-the-scenes special on the subject. In 2008, Decker was featured in the magazine for the third time. She was asked to be on the special edition cover again in 2010 after being on it for the previous five years.
The Gap, Intimissimi, Venus Razors, and Victoria’s Secret are among the brands for which she has walked the runway. In 2005, she made an appearance as a guest judge on the reality show “Germany’s Next Top Model.” In 2007, Brooklyn and Paul Zimmerman hosted a weekly segment on Sports Illustrated’s website called “She Says, Z Says” in which they discussed upcoming NFL games. Decker, along with other Sports Illustrated models, rang the bell at the New York Stock Exchange in 2008. She was named one of the sexiest women of all time by Men’s Health in 2010. She’s also appeared in 3 Doors Down and Jimmy Buffett’s music videos.
Decker made her feature film debut in 2006 with “The Devil Wears Prada,” but she had a minor and uncredited role. “Lipshitz Saves the World,” a 2007 comedy television film in which she co-starred with Leslie Neilson, Ty Burrell, and Jack Carpenter, was her first credited film role. The film was a box office success, grossing $214 million worldwide despite critical acclaim and two Golden Razzberry Awards for worst actor and worst director.
The following year, she starred alongside Rihanna, Liam Neeson, and Alex Skarsgard in the fantasy science fiction film “Battleship” as a physical therapist. Despite a $220 million budget and an international box office gross of slightly more than $300 million, the film fell short of expectations and received mixed reviews.
She starred in the one-season comedy series “Friends with Better Lives” in addition to her previous television appearances. She’s appeared on “The League,” “Fresh Girl,” and “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition,” among others. Brooklyn joined the Netflix series “Grace & Frankie” as a supporting character in 2015 and remained a regular until the show’s seventh season.
