Brooklyn Decker's happy to have made the transition from Sports Illustrated cover girl to "Friends With Better Lives" actress.

"Acting is much more gratifying than modeling," she told HuffPost Live's Marc Lamont Hill in an interview to promote the new CBS sitcom.

"But I wasn't a good model," she added.

"I know that's so crazy and people want to hurt me when I say that. But really, when I was modeling, I never walked a runway," she explained. "I got fired from jobs all the time. Sports Illustrated was really the only client that loved me."

26-year-old Decker has been featured in spreads for Teen Vogue, Glamour and Cosmo. Still, she emphasized her that she'd be sticking to acting in the future.

"I was just never any good at it, so, for me, acting just feels right," Decker concluded.
