Swim Daily

Nina Agdal can only cook egg whites (and other things we learned when we visited her Manhattan apartment)


Nina Agdal invited SwimDaily to her Manhattan apartment last week to get a glimpse of her life at home and away from the madness. Nina spoke candidly about the challenges of leaving her home in Denmark to pursue a modeling career as well as her idea of the perfect date. Here are some of the highlights.

On her ideal weekend: "My ideal Friday and Saturday evening would be ... Friday to go out and have dinner with my girlfriends. Saturday night I would stay in. I would have somebody cook for me out there because I do not cook very well. I make egg whites ... that's about it. And I would go to bed early and have a good Sunday."

On her move to America: "I moved from Denmark to America. I left my family, I left my school. I left my friends. and it was basically to pursue my career and I didn't know if it was going to work out. so that was very scary to leave everything and just put everything into a whole new thing where you don't know if you're going to make it or not. But I think I'm doing good."

On her rise to fame: "Two words to describe the last two years: scary and amazing. It's been two crazy years. so much has happened with me and my career. I feel like a whole new person."
