Interviews / Stories
Can you tell us a little about you?
Hi my name is Jeremy Pitou, alias Mister Plus, i am 28 years old, my parents got divorced when i was 5 years old. My Mum is from Algeria and my Dad is from France. I come from a small village and my family and friends couldn’t believe that i ll travel all around the world the day after like that. My mum support me in everything in my life like my football career now in modeling ! She tried to follow me at the beginning ( laugh ) and now she is always with me on video call, and believe on me when i started to go on French TV !
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
I would like to continue football and start modeling earlier ! This mistake won’t happen to my futur children :) !
How did you start modeling?
I started doing modelling not on purpose, i was doing few pictures at that time just to impress girls ! ( laugh ) and people started liking it on socials media so i continued and continued until somebody from a mother agency asked me to go in Asia and sign my first contract.
What do you think of the work as a model?
This a great job, for me, one of the best if you like travelling, meet new people, going out, show yourself to the best angle and take care of yourself … always ! there is nothing better for me that you have to be careful about yourself physically and stay healthy with new amazing fashion clothes all the time and the last great haircut you saw on your favourite football player ! what else you want ? ;) You have to be confident about yourself and fight for your job ! This is not the job that you stay at home waiting for emails ! Sorry ;) ! You get what you deserve !
What is your beauty regimen?
Beauty is the way to show people your skills into your look or your bright smile or the way you move and the way you talk, you laugh, you think. Beauty is an art, it is your style and specially on shoot your expression has to be perfect. Train in front of a mirror and show it on set !
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
First, is doing things to the fullest, for work, for relationships, stay focus on what you really want and never give up until you found new objectives and same thing until your retirement or better, until your last breath !
What are your plans for the future?
One of my dream is to open a restaurant out of France to share my good food with others cultures ;) i have plan to continue my career and upgrade it as an actor as i love doing it ! having a lot of children and be around my family this how i see my future. Let’s see what God reserve me even if i can say that i am blessed already :)
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
When you do something for the first time it is always the one you remember for life ! So i would like to say my first TVC where i was the lead. It was a great experience to be in front of the camera listening to people giving you the way to follow and see the result after ! Thank you to my agency there who help me a lot and support. My first working travel in India gave me so many things from the lifestyle and mentality of people that i could not get in France for so long ! That is the power of travelling and working at the same time ! Full of experiences and adventures that you can not imagine !
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?
Yes of course, if you think you have any real chance to do it and you could like it from anyhow … Try to do it and if you like that then do it without any doubt, believe on yourself, work on yourself, listen to people who has experience and take the best from everyone ! You will be often on your own so don’t be scared of that, you will meet surely your girlfriend somewhere or your boyfriend model like you ! Your family will support you always, it is a good way if you are stuck somewhere to show them who you really are ;)
What do you think of the magazine?
I love this magazine for what you show on it and the content is very interesting. It is a way to make people dream about fashion and everything they see into it. I recommend it and its always good to read and learn new things.
