Interview: Aimee Sweet
Aimee Sweet’s career began at age 19 when she had a chance meeting with glamour photographer Suze Randall. Sweet went to Randall’s studio to accompany one of her friends, who wanted to be a model. Her friend wasn’t chosen, but Randall liked what she saw in Sweet.
Sweet began modeling for Randall, and soon afterwards was chosen for a centerfold spread in Penthouse magazine. Much to her surprise, she became Penthouse Pet for August 1998, which lead to appearances in other men’s magazines.
In 1999, Sweet moved to Milan, Italy, as a high-fashion model for the Elite modeling agency. Upon returning to the U.S. several months later, she started her own business and launched her own website.
Regular contributor and horror host extroidinaire Mr. Lobo recently interviewed Sweet and we have the video, the audio and the transcript to prove it.
