Naleye Junior Interview
'I’ve had an eye on Naleye Junior every since photographer Anouk Morgan shot his stunning mug for the We Own The Night issue of Ilovefake. I haven’t seen anybody come close to looking like Naleye Junior, or having as peculiar a name [his real name is Naleye Dolmans]. The only thing I can tell you is that this kid likes to have a good time, but is as humble as it gets.'
Trey Taylor: Can you please fill this out?
Name: Naleye Junior
Currently Resides: I live in Amsterdam..
Favourite Song: Broken Bells - The High Road
TT: Are you aware that your initals are an abbreviation for one of the fifty states? Ever been to the States?
NJ: Must be New Jersey… The Jersey Shore creates a pretty funny stereotype of Americans. Yes I have been to the states, New York a few times, it’s a great city.
TT: Okay, so I don’t think you live up to the Dutch stereotype of blond hair and legs the size of a windmill. Are you completely Dutch, or do you have roots in other countries?
NJ: I’m not completely Dutch. My mom is Dutch but my dad has Vietnamese and Somalian blood.
TT: How is it to work with Jolijn Snijders?
NJ: Working with Jolijn Snijders was fun and we got along great. Too bad the day went by so quick. I only worked with her once and I would love to work with her again some time.
TT: Do you have any ambitions to make it to the top of the business? Or is this just something fun that in time will pass?
NJ: Modelling is something that just fell into my lap. I had a revelation today, God spoke to me and told me to be an actor, so here it goes.
TT: What do you think about the earthquake in Haiti?
NJ: I don’t think about it, I just pray for those people!
TT: If you could watch just one film for the rest of your life, which film would it be?
NJ: Dazed and Confused, never gets old.
TT: What are all the tattoos you have and their meanings if they have any?
NJ: I only have two. I’ve my mother on my right foot! And I carry my little brothers on my arm.
TT: Do you think that the demand for skinny male models will eventually die down, or thrive like it has with female models?
NJ: I really don’t know, and actually I don’t care either. I think most of the time beauty is overrated.
TT: What instruments do you play?
NJ: Harmonica and I like to think I can play guitar, but I suck.
TT: Was your hair always that long? Does it ever bother you?
NJ: I was born bald and I haven’t cut it since…..uhmm actually that’s a lie..! It never bothers me. My friend Leontine at Le Souk takes great care of it.
TT: If you had to be famous, would you want to send a message with the work that you did?
NJ: Yes, but doesn’t all work send a message?
TT: Do you believe in art or science?
NJ: Depends on the type of person, some people are left brain people, and some right brain people, go with your natural talent. I relate more to art because I suck in science and maths. And above all, art is not committed to any rules or limits.
TT: Leave us with something that will make me fly to Amsterdam (money is always good).
NJ: You can get your joint worked for about $30. Or you can buy some tulips for your mother. Or you can just eat cheese. Or not. Whatever…
