Summer Altice BIO
Summer Altice breezes into LA’s trendy Kings Road Cafe for her interview carrying a white puppy. “He’s a Maltese I named JD- after Jack Daniels,” she says. It’s easy to see why the whiskey-dubbed pooch seems enamored with his fresh-faced owner: She’s articulate, educated, unpretentious and an all-natural athletic beauty. As she sips her lemonade, Summer considers each question carefully, her sunglasses unable to obscure her piercing hazel eyes. “Pretty much my entire life until last year was volleyball,” says the four-year letter winner from California’s Fountain Valley high school. Her long hours of practice landed her a scholarship to UCLA to study communications.
Summer admits that her interest in volleyball has peaked. “After playing for eight years, I started to burn out on it,” she says. “I didn’t have the same love or desire for the game. It had been in my life for so long that it started becoming just a job.” Miss Altice decided to pursue the modeling and acting career she began in 1995 when she won YM’s cover girl contest. She signed with Elite modeling agency and landed assignments with Mossimo, Guess, Mademoiselle and Bally’s fitness clubs. “The thing about modeling is, if you become a deer in the headlights about the fame, parties and meeting people, it will overcome you,” she says.
Summer appreciates it when people tell her that she resembles actresses Carol Alt , and she is currently auditioning for her breakout role. She is currently seeing an up-and-coming actor she describes as the most amazing person she’s ever met. “He’s given me reasons to look beyond Hollywood and to look inside myself and, like he says, ‘be the queen you are.’ I don’t want to tell you his name because people knowing his business is not something he’s used to.” Can’t she give us a hint about the lucky guy? “Is it getting hot in here?” she says with a sly grin.
