Chanel Iman Describes Shooting In Swimsuits With Snakes

Chanel Iman showed a stroke of fearlessness when shooting this year’s edition of Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit issue.

She told People all about her adventure shooting with pythons:

“I started off with one python snake and then they brought out the second one,” the 25-year-old told People. “It was really easy because their mouths were taped, but there’s always that fear that the tape might come off and they might just squeeze the crap out of you … especially when they’re around your neck, and they’re on your arms, you don’t know what they’re gonna do, so there’s always a little bit of fear that something could go wrong on the shoot.”

Iman also discussed dealing with the Maasai men in Zanzibar during her shoot there:

“It was funny because the Maasai warriors were basically trying to get me to move to Africa and bidding on cows,” she said. “Like the more cows that you hunt, the man wins the woman or something like that.”

“I think my bid was 50 cows,” she said. “Something crazy.”

Hit the flip for BTS from Chanel’s shoot and more ‘mini clad shots.
