Matilda's player and Young Australian of the Year Sam Kerr spoke to WHO exclusively as she's been chosen as one of our Most Beautiful People.
Asked what makes her feel beautiful, “I love being out in my kit, but then I also love getting all dolled up for those special nights in amazing gowns,” the West Australian tells WHO.
“Getting your hair done and sometimes being the girly girl that sometimes athletes don’t get to be ... That was a lie, such a lie!” she bursts out laughing.
“I don’t know. I hate being beautiful. I just want to play soccer.”
What’s your favourite feature?
I guess it’s probably my lips. They’re big and everyone always comments on them.
Who is the most beautiful person in the world?
Definitely Beyoncé. She’s not only a beautiful human, but she’s an amazing human being and she does a lot of good things outside of her career. She’s unreal. I would be Beyoncé, if I could. Always be yourself, unless you can be Beyoncé!
What is ugly to you?
Fake things! I don’t know if I should say that but I really don’t like the whole fake lips, fake butt, fake everything … It’s just not for me.
What’s your daily beauty routine?
Nothing. Natural beauty, mate. I don’t really have a routine, to be honest. Wake up, clean my teeth, moisturise, brush my hair.
What grounds you?
It’s just the way I am. I’m not really someone who likes fussing over things.
My family are very supportive but they’re the first ones to tell me if I didn’t have a good game. I still live with my parents in Fremantle because there’s no point moving out when I spend so many months away from home when I’m playing.
What’s exciting about this year?
I recently changed clubs and moved to Chicago. It’s a new team and a new
challenge and I’m really excited to get over and explore. I’ve never lived in the city, so it’s a new step for me.
