Brooklyn Decker is expanding her growing portfolio beyond swimsuits to acting, but wherever a sexy body is needed, she’s there, even if it’s for DirectTV’s “Access” magazine. She did a recent photoshoot to promote the broadcaster’s NFL football issue.

Outside of her modeling career, Decker has been earnestly pursuing acting and landed her debut role opposite Jennifer Aniston Adam Sandler and Nicole Kidman in the film “Just Go With It.” It’s due on Valentine’s Day 2011.

Just to prove that was no fluke, Decker has also been cast with “Friday Night Lights” star Taylor Kitsch and True Blood’s Alexander Skarsgard in Peter Berg’s “Battleship” movie. Rihanna will be making her debut in that film.

Decker also played a mismatched newlywed with “House” star Peter Jacobson are on USA Networks’ “Royal Pains.”

Problem is she’s having some difficulty escaping type. She played a swimsuit model in the show.

Which should come as no surprise since Women’s Health magazine named her 2010’s Best Summer Body.

Decker, however, told the magazine she thinks she’s too fat to be a model. Honest!

“I have a curvy body. I have boobs. I’m a size 4. In modeling, that’s often too big. Oddly enough, [after I gave up juice fasts] more people wanted to work with me,” she said.

In the contest, Decker managed to out bikini body newlywed Carrie Underwood , 27; Jennifer Aniston, 41, and Kim Kardashian, 29.

Also on the “Best Summer Bodies” list: Jessica Alba, Ashley Greene, Vanessa Hudgens, Jessica Biel, Katy Perry and Lauren Conrad.
