Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Model Hailey Clauson Is a Hot Sauce Freak, and Other Fun Facts
How does Hailey Clauson celebrate Sports Illustrated’s just-released Swimsuit Issue? With pizza and burgers, of course.
No Place Like Home
I recently moved to Brooklyn and am excited that now I have space to entertain. My style is very casual—I make pizza or pasta, and usually we’re all sitting on the couch watching a movie or just catching up. Don’t get me wrong: I love to go out and dance, but there’s nothing like being at home with friends, eating good food.
I’ve been trying a lot of different bottles in order to learn more about wine and to figure out my tastes. Right now, I tend toward Cabernet, but I’m still searching for my absolute favorite. In the meantime, it’s a fun experiment.
Fantasy Food Day
If I’m not getting ready for a shoot, then I would eat eggs Benedict for breakfast, pizza for lunch and sushi for dinner. I love sushi. When I was growing up, that’s what we had when we went out as a family. I’m lucky that my parents exposed my brother and me to great food from a young age.
I grew up in Thousand Oaks, and I like to go to Huntington Beach since it has a lot of fantastic Asian food. I’m a big fan of a shabu place called Shabu on Fire and an amazing little Thai-inflected hole-in-the-wall called Pocket Burger Shack.
I’m a hot sauce freak. I swear, you’ll find 10 different bottles in my fridge. I’m obsessed with anything spicy. I travel a lot for work, so I started collecting hot sauce from the places I’ve shot—Thailand and Mexico’s are in heavy rotation.
I usually know about a shoot at least a month in advance, so I try to be strict with my diet beforehand. After I wrap, all I want is a burger. In NYC that means Shake Shack–it’s simple and so good. Eating healthy is my job, but what girl doesn’t love a cheeseburger? You can’t deprive yourself of what you love.
