In August 2017, Ren has been featured on the cover of Maxim, an international men’s magazine, devised and launched in the United Kingdom in 1995.
During an interview, she said:
“I think I’ve lived more in five years than a person has in their entire life. Because of how much I’ve gone through, I want to say I’m more wise than my age.”

In an interview, Alexis revealed that for several years, she suffered from an eating disorder. Ren explained that the eating issue started after her mother’s death as it was compounded with her entrance into the world of modeling. She said in the interview:

“He’s got a small d### too.”
”Body shaming is never cool in any gender or situation. Making someone feel bad about how they naturally are is only showing your weakness.”
Last year, in an interview, Alexis said:
“The past was in the past. I was putting him before myself, which I thought was an act of love, but it’s not. It’s not healthy to ever put someone first before yourself.”
She also deleted most of her photos of Alvarrez (except the paid ads), and tweeted:
“I am too full of life to be half loved.”
