If you’ve got it, flaunt it. That’s pretty much Danica Patrick’s approach.
In a new documentary about her life titled “Danica,”Patrick makes no apologies for the things she’s done. Take for example her wearing a bikini in the Go Daddy ads.
“I feel awesome about being a sex symbol. The exposure that was generated because of being female and using my attributes – it works,” Patrick says in the film. “Take it all with a grain of salt, y’all. I never did anything that I wasn’t comfortable with. Never. My comfort zone perhaps is larger than others.”
The fact that Patrick is a woman in a male-dominated sport means she oftentimes made others feel uncomfortable with things she did or said. The documentary, which airs on the Epix network Wednesday at 8 p.m. and reported on by the Charlotte Observer, delves into how Patrick has dealt with other’s expectations.
“I don’t really care what anybody thinks. I don’t care if someone hates me. I don’t care if they know that I hate them. I’m just going to be totally honest about what I think, what’s bulls—, and what’s not. That’s it.”
And if being true to herself means there’s no more racing in her future, then that means it’s time to move on.
“I’ve gotta do what makes me happy, and perhaps that might even be even more successful than anything I’ve ever done. Who knows?”
