• To the long list of Adam Sandler's contributions to Western civilization, we can now add the following: Brooklyn Decker's midriff, 2011 vintage. "I give Adam full credit for my abs," says Decker, who at 23 is appearing in her sixth SI Swimsuit Issue. "He made me laugh so hard every day that they got a full workout."
All those belly-toning chuckles came on the Maui set of the new romantic comedy Just Go With It, which serves as the backdrop for this photo shoot. Decker, in her first major movie role, plays a fifth-grade math teacher who becomes the love interest of Sandler's caddish plastic surgeon. After three years on the auditioning circuit, Decker was asked to come in for a table read the same week that she learned she was to be last year's Swimsuit cover model. "I was like, Great! Now, what in the world is a table read?"
She knows now and is on her way to becoming a Hollywood veteran: She will star in the alien invasion epic Battleship, in which she plays Liam Neeson's daughter. It is set to be released in May 2012.
In the meantime: As for those abs? You be the judge.
