Call Noureen DeWulf a “good girl gone bad” and you’d be right in more ways than one. The 24-year-old Indian stunner was raised in a strict Muslim household in Georgia, but started taking stripperobics classes after moving to L.A. She’s starred in an Academy Award-winning short (2005’s West Bank Story)—and also as Paris Hilton’s foreign exchange student pal “Poo Poo” (2006’s Pledge This!). And this summer she’s set to put the bad (meaning good) in The Goods, playing a stripper working her way through grad school in the Jeremy Piven-starring, Will Ferrell-produced comedy. We recently got with Noureen to closely examine all of her sides.
You’ve been part of an Oscar winner and also played a character named “Poo Poo”—
Noureen Dewulf:Laughs
—with Paris Hilton. How did you end up with such…diverse roles?
Noureen Dewulf:West Bank Story
And it was a flop.
Noureen Dewulf:
Was it hard growing up Muslim in the American Bible Belt?
Noureen Dewulf:
And probably say “shit like that.” No doubt they love that you’re playing a stripper now. How did you go about prepping for the role?
Noureen Dewulf:
Wait—what’s a good Muslim girl from the South doing in stripperobics?!
Noureen Dewulf:
We’re glad to hear that!
