When not working, Caitlin lends her time and talent to non-profit organizations that protect animals and kids, including Safety Harbor Kids, Generosity Water and One Mama. She is also an avid classic car enthusiast and collects vintage Lincoln Continentals.
What is the best city you’ve been to?
The best city I have been to is New York City. Although I’d never move there permanently, it’s an amazing city to visit. Its allure goes deeper than the transient nature of LA. New Yorkers are real and their city is full of spirit.
How important is style when it comes to representing who you are?
Style is very important to my craft as an actress and model because it molds how I’m perceived, and it allows me to show off my own creativity and fashion sense. I love to dress up – “who I’m wearing” can be as important as what project I’m promoting sometimes. But behind closed doors I don’t follow trends, I wear what is comfortable with clothes that I like, rather than clothes that are fashionable.

What is the biggest turn on in a guy?
I’m asked this question in almost every interview and I’m not sure whether I should constantly change my answer or stick to the same one! In any case, I’m attracted to energy – and men who are confident, intelligent and genuine catch my eye first. I love men who wear glasses.
