Off the runway, Adriana has made numerous on-screen appearances. Her film debut came in 2001 alongside Mickey Rourke and Forest Whitaker in The Wife; Adriana has also made cameo appearances in How I Met Your Mother, Ugly Betty, and The Crazy Ones. Her 2008 Superbowl ad was the most watched advertisement of the game, and in 2012 Adriana again appeared in Superbowl commercials for Teleflora and Kia, becoming the first celebrity to appear in two ads in one game.

Countless other campaigns and publications that the featured the Brazilian model have seen increased traffic and sales as a result, from GQ Magazine to clothing company Mavi Jeans. In 2015 Adriana achieved multiple company sponsors such as Marc Jacobs any others. Adriana’s ability to captivate an audience is obviously unparalleled.
