Meet Cailin Russo, the girl who made out with and rubbed all up on Justin Bieber as his love interest in his latest music video “All That Matters.”
Since the video’s release, Cailin Russo reveals that she’s received a multitude of death threats from the beliebers. On the upside, she got private time with Justin in his trailer — and now facetimes and texts with him.
Checkout her interview with Cosmopolitan.com - all about her experience on set with Justin.
Cosmo: First of all, how old are you?
Cailin Russo: I’m 19, but I’ll be turning 20 on December 17.
Cosmo: And how did you get to be the only girl in this video?
CR: I’m with the Osbrink Agency commercially and I just got a casting one day. I’m friends with Dustin the casting director, so I went and auditioned. I didn’t know what video I was auditioning for — I thought I would be one of seven video girls. After I auditioned, Dustin moved my video up to the front of the line to be viewed first and, to my knowledge, I was the only video that they saw and decided from there.
Cosmo: What was the casting like?
CR: It was super short, just like any other music video casting. Like I said, I didn’t know what the project was for.
Cosmo: So did you freak out when you found what and who the video was for?
CR: I got the call sheet the night before the shoot and my jaw dropped when I saw that it said my name and Justin Bieber’s only. I was on a high. I knew it was going to be a big deal. I wasn’t allowed to tell anyone about it, but I wanted to leave it as a surprise anyway.
Cosmo: Were you nervous on the day of the shoot?
CR: I didn’t have an appetite the day of, but I was so ready to do the job. In the beginning I wasn’t too nervous because Justin didn’t bring his presence until later in the day, but when he did that’s when I got nervous. I didn’t know what was going to happen because the song is super romantic, and since the shoot was set up a certain way, I didn’t even know if we would be shooting together. But the first take was us kissing!
Cosmo: Um, that’s intense. How did you feel about that?
CR: In the beginning it was kind of weird because I had never kissed anyone on set that passionately or that famous. I wasn’t a super fan of his before I did this and I just kept thinking to myself that people would kill to do this.
Cosmo: So, is he a good kisser?
CR: Yeah. Kissing him was nice — I got butterflies and I do still to this day. After the shoot wrapped it felt so surreal, I even got a speeding ticket after the shoot because I was on such a high. I guess you could say I wouldn’t mind doing it again. [Laughs] Continue
