Stunning UK model, actress and social media sensation ROXY HORNER is definitely one to watch…
Congrats on your first feature for MAXIM Australia, Roxy.
Thanks for having me! I’m so excited to be featured. We shot this in the Gold Coast at a stunning house and I treated myself to a nice hotel nearby the night before. When I’m in Australia I just really love being by a pool or the beach as we don’t get that too much where I’m from. So, shooting in the sun by a pool made my day!
Well, yes, you are from the UK. What else can you tell us about yourself?
I grew up in a town called Essex and started modelling at 13. In my half-term breaks I would always go to London to work and I loved it. I never knew this could be, or would be, my job but I’ve always been confident and silly in front of the camera — this is ironic since I can be shy in person. I studied film at 16 and then went full-time from there. Then pretty much my whole family moved to Australia and I decided to stay back in the UK to continue my work.
Is acting a part-time thing now?
I started performing arts when I was around three and dabbled in acting for a while now, but yes I recently did my first short film called Art of Expression, so I’ve been pretty busy with that in my spare time.
Is it true that you also write and perform music?
Well, my dad is a musician so I grew up around music and my sisters and I would go into his studio and mess around when we were kids. It’s not something I take seriously — I just enjoy writing here and there.
How did you get into modelling?
I was scouted. It was never something I would have thought to do but when the opportunity arose I just went with it.

TESTOSTERONE AND HAIR LOSS: How to Get Ahead
The simple fact is that most men are concerned about their looks; for the bodybuilder and fitness enthusiast, appearance is a strong factor in one’s satisfaction. It is undeniable that testosterone (T) directly impacts the physical health, function, and appearance of a man; as well, one’s mental health and cognitive abilities. In the chronology of life, testosterone’s effects produce milestones that easily identify the stages of life: the ultrasound’s shadow of a penis during pregnancy; a wispy mustache during adolescence; a deep voice during adulthood; and with its decline late in life, the loss of muscle, and erectile dysfunction.
