Alex Morgan still more comfortable playing soccer than modeling
“It’s definitely harder trying to be a model for a day, because I am in no way a model,” she says. “Soccer is what I grew up doing – it’s my passion, and I’m way more comfortable on the field in my soccer cleats.”
The U.S. women’s national team is preparing for its first Olympics game later this month after beating Canada 2-1 last Saturday. Morgan is the team’s leading scorer with 17 goals this year and has become one of the most well known faces on the squad. Her surge in popularity has made it difficult for to balance all her demands.
“My playing time has increased over the year, but for me, it’s just knowing when to say no to media or work like that and just focus on soccer and make soccer a priority,” she told USA Today.
Considering how well she’s been playing, it seems like she’s balancing things quite well. And as far as the modeling goes, Morgan told King5 News in Seattle that she was happy with the way her body paint pictures turned out. We’re guessing Morgan’s boyfriend was happy with them too.
