‘Baywatch’ babe Kelly Rohrbach loves beating dudes at sports – New York Post

Kelly Rohrbach has one very big advantage when it comes to conquering Hollywood: her backswing.

It turns out the 5-foot-9 model and actress, who is stepping into Pamela Anderson’s red swimsuit in the “Baywatch” movie in theaters Thursday, is an ace on the golf course.

“I love to go out there and beat the guys,” Rohrbach told The Post. “It’s kind of an ego boost.

“Golf [has been] a big part of my life, and shaped my character quite a bit in how I approach things mentally and my discipline and work ethic,” added Rohrbach.

In fact, she and “Baywatch” producer Beau Flynn regularly hit balls together while filming in Florida and Georgia.

“I’ve been fortunate to have some great golfing buddies,” said the 27-year-old, who quit the Georgetown University golf team to focus on acting.

There’s one putting pal whose very name makes her clam up, though: Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

The pair sparked romance rumors when they hit the Westchester Golf Course in California together in April. Rohrbach won’t even reveal who won.

The Connecticut-born beauty got a good lesson in keeping her love life private while dating serial modelizer Leonardo DiCaprio for most of 2015. It’s been reported that the actor asks his ladies to sign confidentiality agreements. (Rohrbach is reportedly dating Walmart heir Steuart Walton).

Still, her desire for privacy certainly didn’t hurt her career. Rohrbach has landed on the covers of British GQ and V, starred in a Michael Kors spring 2017 campaign and, of course, landed a movie part coveted by many an aspiring Hollywood actress — that of C.J. Parker in “Baywatch.”

But not just any old one-piece will do when you’re taking on the role made iconic by Anderson (who makes a “Pameo” in the new movie). Rohrbach’s cleavage bearing red swimsuit was custom-made to fit her hard body, which was honed by swim lessons and six-day-a-week training sessions.

“It was like they were fitting a superhero suit,” she said, adding that the swimwear was made of “neoprene material so it sucks you in.” The suit also came with handlers to stand on the sidelines and watch out for nip slips and other wardrobe malfunctions.

And if the acting thing doesn’t work out, Rohrbach is ready to hit the campaign trail for her co-star, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who last week expressed interest in running for president of the United States.

“He is such a leader and humble and a wonderful, humorous person. There aren’t enough words in the dictionary,” she said. “Heck yeah, I’d vote for him. I’ll be out there with signs!”
