Elle Patille Interview
Giving ‘Till It Hurts with Elle Patille
So…..You had an interesting jump into modelling, from animal health services to .. Goddess.. How does that happen?
Actually, I was in the animal health services industry for 8 years and I just wanted a few pictures of myself just so when I look back at the age of 80 I could be like, WOW…. that was me WHEN… So I contacted a photographer and the next thing I knew I get an e-mail back saying, “ Do you want to come to the Dominican and do an issue for Play Boy”…. and… what girl doesn’t want to?
No kidding… that’s …
A dream come true..
Yep, .. So I jumped on it, I went down, I did it, everything snowballed and I ended up doing 6 issues, two covers and now the 2010 calendar for Play Boy .. and it’s all been good.
But as I found out you didn’t leave all the animals behind… Now from what I was able to find out it’s a baby jaguar, .. two anteaters… what else is at the “Elle Zoo” right now?
Oh my… well .. I am currently sharing my bed with a jaguar, a painted leopard also known as an Ocelot which is another endangered species. A green macaw .. which is pretty rare and a Kikachu. Um.. in the park we have a couple of anteaters, and let me tell you that it’s a nasty job feeding them. I don’t know if you’ve ever hacked into a termite nest…
It’s alot like a pinata and it all falls on you.. and that’s what all these little things are like and it gets all in your hair and on your body and you have to carry this squirming mess back to them.
And trust me when I say I don’t like insects. Give me any other animal, give me rats, give me snakes just please not insects. But yes, I am now living in Honduras on an island called, Roatan. There is no government funding for any of these endangered species. The illegal animal trade in Central America is quite awful, and these little guys have won my heart. They are sharing my bed and I think I’ve found a new home and a new purpose, so I’m hoping to merge Play Boy along with the animals and the needs that they have and make something happen.
Fantastic …. well it’s all a labour of love, so when your elbow is deep in termites, you just know that you’re doing it all for the right reasons.
Yeah…. so they keep looking at pictures saying, “ I can still clean up, and I can still look like that.. but still do this as well.” But yes… definitely it’s all worth it… it’s a great cause, it’s a good reason and peeing and pooping is all part of the job.
I understand that you just flew back from Honduras, JUST for this show… aside from national pride what brought you back?
Well, I thought this would be a great opportunity, the Everything To Do With Sex Show is getting bigger and bigger every year, people are getting more open minded and they’re free to speak about it and take part. So the show is an awesome place for exposure for anybody’s cause so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity, and I couldn’t back down so I bought my ticket and came back just for this. Its been absolutely incredible, the response, the support. Just Great. So.. all the proceeds are gonna be going back to these little guys and I’ll be back again next year for it.
Great to hear and we’ll be looking forward to seeing you then as well…. So…. if you can… just walk me through a day in the life of Elle Patille … you wake up… you’re beautiful.. you have lunch, your gorgeous … someone takes some breathtaking photos of you and you go to bed, odds are looking utterly fantastic in something skimpy and lacy….. is that about right?
Yes… with a little bit of pleasuring myself in between. First thing in the morning to start my day off right, before I go to bed so it helps me fall asleep and if I have time in the middle of the day well… then that’s usually awesome too.
Yeah.. that just about sums it up nicely …
You think this was.. the life that you ever imagined for yourself?
Oh… Never in a million years, I was a complete tom boy who couldn’t get a date to save my life…
I would never believe THAT ever..
Oh my… no… never never neh-ver… so.. this is all been a dream come true.
So… are you ever going to branch out into adult films or are your fans going to have to live with simply worshipping you in 2D?
I think they are gonna have to worship me as it is… I mean the only film work I do is for my website ellepatille.com ..
Which is fantastic and anyone reading this should go there right now, and subscribe … what was it again..?
ellepatille.com .. thank you… there are videos, they are nudes and they are open leg… but it’s erotic…. but still very tasteful…and edgy… and damned cool…
I completely agree on all those points … I spent many a day on your website recently … as I was ( cough ) forced to do HOURS of arduous research …
( laughter )
Let’s just say… I was very HARD at work……
Now…. I have to ask the question…. it comes up from time to time… are… THEY real?
No, actually I just had them redone. I went a little bit smaller to take a little bit of the attention away, big lips… being as tall as I am. I’m almost 6 foot with big boobs… and my hips are pretty big too. So, if I get dressed up and put on make up, I’m kind of like a walking target so I downsized my boobies… so … no they’re not mine.
Fair enough…….Is it hard to look as good as you do ? Do you wake up every morning and it’s make-up… time… effort… or are you just naturally fantastic?
I don’t think any girl would say they are naturally fantastic… we are our own worst critics… to me… I’m O K… without the make-up… but it makes me feel more girly and more beautiful obviously if I really do myself up… so it does take just a little bit…
but just a bit right?
So… lastly… if people want to help out with your cause, keep track of what good you’re doing out there, contribute… whatever. What can they do?
Well, just so they know, the poaching and illegal animal trade in Honduras is very severe. We have so many animals coming to us… animals being dropped off on our doorstep in banana boxes. Remember that little baby leopard I take care of?… When we found him he was caked in his mothers own dried blood, had a respiratory infection and was severely dehydrated. I had to make him an incubator out of a blender box… and I had to borrow an oxygen tank from the EMS pilot..the helicopter pilot on the island. So, it took a few of us to save that little guy that night… he came to us with three broken ribs and a burnt nose as well…. so it’s sad … I would love for people and I want to bring awareness, so if people do want to follow along and see the pictures and see how these little guys recover. You can find me on facebook at Elle Patille or click here and we’ll be starting a page for them as well, on livejournal.com under Elle Patille. I’ve also teamed up with Roatan Zoo & Animal Sanctuary, roatanzoo.com these guys have huge hearts. It’s like a one man show, he is putting all his time and money into feeding and caring for these animals and helping these little guys have a safe place to live….. So… please, please, please, everyone out there look up Roatan Zoo & Animal Sanctuary and find me and follow the stories and all your support is greatly appreciated.
Thank you, very much… bye for now!

We know from personal experience she would hug you if she knew you were helping her make a life for those animals that she fights for.
