My Quote On Life
Life isn’t quotes about life.
It’s so important not to compare yourself to other people, as everybody is different.
Firstly, Amanda is a social media megastar with over 35 million followers across YouTube, Facebook and Instagram. But, she’s also an astute business woman too. Cerny is co-founder of the comedy, beauty, fashion and fitness streaming video on demand (SVOD) service Zeus, which launched in 2018 and features both short and long form programming. So move over Jake Paul, Amanda’s comedy videos trailblazed the path that you’re currently walking on. Amanda’s also an actress who starred in both TV (Sober Coach, The Deleted, Adam Devine’s House Party) and film (Deported, Public Disturbance and The Bet). She has a music connection too; yes that was her featured in the Maroon 5 video, “Don’t Wanna Know.”
There was ample evidence Amanda was destined to conquer the world early on. This badass babe earned her first-degree black belt in karate at age 11, ran varsity track while maintaining straight A’s in high school and celebrated her 18th birthday by skydiving— freefalling from a plane at 120 mph. “It feels as though you’re floating. It was amazing,” Cerny recalls of the experience. “Then again, I’m kind of a thrill junkie—I want to bungee jump and white-water raft. Honestly, I want to do everything I can think of!”
Cerny has and continues to do it all—especially when it comes to celebrating and enjoying life. She’s traveled around the globe and counts Spain, Germany and France among her favorite countries. Her life mantra comes from the wise words of a world famous and beloved children’s author. “One of my favorite quotes is from Dr. Seuss,” she explained to Playboy. “It goes, ‘If you never did, you should. These things are fun, and fun is good.’”
“Fun is important! I don’t want to be the person who says, ‘That would be a nice thing to do’ and then never does it,” Cerny continues. “I want to have a life where I can say, I did that and it was awesome!” So, take a good long glance and be sure to get acquainted, because Amanda Cerny is the phrase, ‘did that’ personified.
Travel the world with Amanda Cerny, our Playmate of the Month for October 2011. She’s been there and done that – she’s lived in five different states and toured Europe, she was a straight-A student with a black belt in karate and a great varsity track record. She’s a thrill-seeker, too – she went skydiving for her eighteenth birthday, and next she wants to go bungee jumping, zip lining or deep-sea diving. Amanda’s love of travel and head for business led her to a degree program in international affairs at Florida State University. “I had two semesters left, but I took the year off to be Miss October,” she says. “I’m taking it one day at a time.” As a student of global socioeconomics, Amanda is a humanitarian, and she wants to use her status as Playmate to collect donations and promote relief work in Haiti. “I’m on the advisory council in Jacmel,” she says. “We’re working to rebuild hotels and tourist attractions to support the local economy.”
Amanda did some modeling in college, but she never considered Playboy until a girl from her high school, a certain Kelly Carrington, became Miss October 2008. Emboldened by her friend’s success, she sent us her portfolio, and we invited her for a test shoot and a stay at the Mansion. “Two weeks later, Hef approved my Centerfold,” she says. “I couldn’t believe it – I got to be Miss October, too. I screamed and called all of my friends and family.” Amanda had never posed nude – at least not in front of a photographer and full crew – but the makeup artist on set assured her that Stephen Wayda was a consummate professional, and by the end of the day she was a pro, too. Speaking of her professional life, Amanda has moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career as a model and actress. “I have a lot on my plate,” she says, “but I wouldn’t have it any other way.” Neither would we. Amanda talks zip lining, sky diving and traveling the world in her Facetime interview.
