Back in late Feburary we told you about Terry Richardson's photoshoot with Bar Refaeli, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Vinny Guadagnino, and "Paul D" Delvecchio. Over the weekend the photos were finally published. Judging by the result, we can't imagine Refaeli's occasional boyfriend Leonard DiCaprio is too happy with the Situation practically got to dry humping the 24-year-old Israeli model. No worries, Mike Sorrentio discusses why he envies Leo's career and other chime in about GLT," a Snooki sex tape, and the difference between a real "guido" and someone who's faking it. After the jump, we've excepted some of our favorite parts, along with pictures of Refaeli.
MARTIN: What do you want to do with your life?
GUADAGNINO: I want to be an actor. Like, a serious actor. I can do comedy, too. But that’s what I’ve always wanted. I’m going to ride this wave out, and if it doesn’t come through, I have a political science degree, so I can work for the government. If I had the opportunity to be in the entertainment industry, whether it’s being a rapper or an actor, I’d choose that over being in a suit-and-tie ant farm. I’ve been in that world. I’ve interned before.
MARTIN: Whose career do you envy?
GUADAGNINO: Definitely Leonardo DiCaprio. I could see myself, not now because he plays crazy roles, but if I ever got to that level, I’d like to play the roles he plays. He handles everything with such poise. He’s very low-key, and I’m the same kind of way. When you see me in a club, you don’t see me going crazy; you see me with a hat and a hood on, laying back. What would Leo do? What would Leo do? I keep reciting that in my head.
MARTIN: Pauly D, think back to your audition for the show. What put you over the top?
“PAULY D” DELVECCHIO: I think it’s my look. Stereotypically, I look like a guido. I got the spiked hair. I got the tan. I got the muscles. I got the tattoos. You can just point me out and say, “That kid looks like the Italian guido.”
MARTIN: Are you rethinking the guido identity at all?
DELVECCHIO: Not at all. I was like this before the show; I’m going to be like this after the show. This is just how I am.
MARTIN: So who’s a real guido, and who’s faking it?
DELVECCHIO: A fake guido is a person who’s trying to be something they’re not. A real guido is like myself. I’m not trying to be anybody: I’m trying to be myself. Somebody who’s trying to be something they’re not—you can tell they are just right off the bat. Just because they’re trying to be somebody they’re not. You can tell in the club and stuff.
