Skokie, Il-born 25-year-old Erin Heatherton (Erin Heather Bubley) is rocking the modeling world.

And in a new interview accompanying a cover spread for Miami’s Ocean Drive magazine, she says Jewish moms are “constantly trying to set her up with their sons.”

“But I’m probably going to do that too one day.”

Heatherton was also asked if she was Bat Mitzvahed.

“I did; it was just a wonderful day in my life… and humiliating,” she responded. “I sang! They’re like mini weddings for awkward preadolescent weirdos changing voices.”

“The world sees you as beautiful, but how do you see yourself?” she was also asked.

I’m a beautiful person, and that’s not because of my modeling career. There are good shots, and there are bad shots, but it’s just like playing a character. If you think of the top five people that you care about the most in your life, you probably don’t care if they look good in every angle or photo.”
