Other work

In 1997, he published a book, Marcus Schenkenberg, New Rules, which featured numerous photos and personal notes and comments on his modelling career, as well as contributions from colleagues, family members and people in the fashion and modeling business.

In 1999 he was asked by a friend to record a song, which was meant for fun but was followed by a contract with EMI. "La Chica Marita" was produced by Tony Catania and was also released on the soundtrack of the movie Flawless with Robert De Niro. Schenkenberg described the work on the song and video as good experience, but he remained more interested in acting.

Personal life

Schenkenberg lives in New York and Los Angeles and also has an apartment in Stockholm. He is fluent in five languages: Swedish, English, Dutch, French and Italian and understands German.

During the early nineties he had relationships with the models Maureen Gallegher, Catherine Hardenborg and Rosemarie Wetzel. Schenkenberg dated various prominent women during the following years, including Mariah Carey, Nicky Hilton, Victoria Silvstedt and Jessica Simpson. His relationship with Pamela Anderson between 2000 and 2001 made him more well-known to the public aside from his modelling.

Website Fashion Indie indicates that Schenkenberg is of mixed Dutch/Indonesian parentage. Presumably, one of Sex and the City's characters, Smith Jerrod (played by actor Jason Lewis)-- Samantha Jones' model boyfriend was inspired by Schenkenberg. One of Smith Jerrod's photos was a remake from that of Schenkenberg.
