Today we're talking with big, muscular and HOT Carl Hardwick, COLT model. Want to know more about this throbbing hunk? I know I do! Let's get started with the interview!
Anthony: Tell us about how you got started in the business and when was your first movie for COLT Studio Group?
Carl: Well, it was in the early 90s and I was well on my way in my bodybuilding career. At that point I had done some physique modeling. It was then that I was approached by the guys at COLT. I was familiar with COLT and knew what a big name they were. And since I was never shy about being in front of a camera, becoming a COLT Man seemed like a good fit for me. After many photo-shoots they asked me if I would do a nude posing routine for a "Legendary Bodies" movie. Once I made the jump to movies it just kind of took off.
Anthony: What do you like best about being in porn, and is there anything you don't like about it?
Carl: Well, I like being a COLT Man. I don't see myself as porn star. Being a COLT Man seems to be a natural extension of my love for bodybuilding. It inspires me to be in the best shape of my life and I get to share the results of all that hard work pumping iron to an audience that truly appreciates a well built body.
Anthony: Top or Bottom? Which do you prefer and what's your favorite position?
Carl: I'm a top who likes to be on the bottom (wink).
Anthony: Who would you most like to work with at COLT Studio group?
Carl: I've only ever worked solo, but I do appreciate all the impressive physiques that I have seen at COLT over the years. I've also met some of my fellow COLT Men along the way who have also joined the ranks of professional bodybuilders. Chris Wide and Karim come to mind.
Anthony: What's it like having sex on camera compared to in your private life? Ever been nervous or couldn't get it up for a shoot?
Carl: At first I only did nude, erotic posing on camera. When I did my first solo scene, I'd say it was a big turn on to perform in front of the camera. It was more of a turn on than I had ever expected. I wasn't nervous at all, just excited.
Anthony: How has everyone around you accepted your decision to become a porn star? Do you have a relationship outside of work? What are some of your hobbies?
Carl: Well, in the bodybuilding world it's no secret the work I did with COLT. In the world of bodybuilding, erotic modeling or physique modeling isn't that unusual. If it bothers anyone, that's their problem. I don't care.
Anthony: Has working in the adult industry changed your personal life?
Carl: It's given me exposure to a wider audience. Fans of my work with COLT have come to know me in my professional career as a bodybuilder and vice versa. It's been a win / win situation for me.
Anthony: What are some of your hobbies outside of the bedroom?
Carl: I eat, sleep and drink bodybuilding. Competing on the stage is what I live for. On the rare occasions I'm not training in the gym, I like outdoorsy stuff in the Arizona desert; camping, hiking, driving around in my Jeep.
Anthony: Got any big projects or news on the way?
Carl: Been planning my own gym and bulking up for the next competition.
Anthony: Where can new fans find you? Do you have a web site, Facebook or MySpace account, Blog or Twitter?
Carl: The COLT stuff, my videos and pics, can be seen at www.COLTstudiogroup.com or buy my DVDs at www.COLTstudiostore.com.
