New York Post Profiles ‘Twilight’ Cover Hand Model

twilight-cover.jpegParts model Kimbra Hickey landed a hand modeling job where the end product was re-printed 17 million times. Her hands hold the apple on the cover of Twilight, the first book in Stephenie Meyer‘s vampire saga.

In a New York Post interview, Hickey confessed she wished for a little more fame from the cover job. The forty-year-old model admits to having acted “a bit goofy” about her lack of status.

Hickey sometimes haunts the Barnes & Noble nearby her New York City apartment to alert customers reading the books. She has even gone so far as to carry an apple in her purse so she can re-create the pose upon request. Right now, she works mainly as a massage therapist and she performs parts-modeling a few days each month.

Hickey told the New York Post: “It was major exposure for my hands, but nobody knew who I was…I see people reading it on the subway, and I say, ‘Those are my hands! I’m a hand model!’ I’m sure they think I’m crazy–a crazy lady on the subway.”

It was announced in April that Bill Condon will sit in the director’s seat for the final Twilight Saga film installment, Breaking Dawn. The book’s content will be divided up into two films. Hickey has a goal of breaking into acting and plans to contact Condon for a small background part.
