Olivia Wilde couldn't help but be charmed by her fiancé, "Saturday Night Live" funnyman Jason Sudeikis. We must say, we don't blame her.
She immediately had a crush on him, telling Marie Claire in their April issue that she didn’t think she had a shot with him.
"I thought, 'He won’t be interested in me; I’m not a contender.' He was so cool, so funny—I was such a fan of his and had always fancied his speed and his intelligence," she said. "He's a brilliant actor with a brain like lightening... I felt like fresh meat at the market... I thought, ‘I’m not beautiful enough or his type.’ I couldn’t wait to sit down and hear him talk. On our first date, in New York City, we closed the restaurant down at 2 a.m.! He didn’t kiss me, and I was madly in love. I was overwhelmed."
Ashley Benson looks all patriotic on the April cover of Seventeen—what with her we-want-them-now American flag shorts—but inside she’s all ambitious, sharing that one day she’d love to take home a much-coveted Academy Award.
"I love Michelle Williams and Natalie Portman—those are the careers I want," the "Pretty Little Liars" star said in the issue, out March 12. "My goal is to win an Oscar, and I’m going to take the steps to get there."
And she’s definitely making strides towards more mature films. She’ll have to wait and see if her role in the titillating “Spring Breakers” gets her any closer, but she knew that it was a leap she needed to make, regardless.
Pretty little Shay Mitchell, of "Pretty Little Liars," is on the pretty little cover of Teen Vogue this April—and you'll love reading what she has to say about her breakout role on everyone's favorite guilty primetime pleasure. From dealing with angry, close-minded superfans of the source material to discussing her work with the Somaly Mam organization against sex trafficking, Shay is thoughtful and well-spoken about her work, her life and why she's absolutely right in her girl-next-door role.
Unfortunately, Shay's entry into the public eye made her the instant object of ire for jerky fans who didn't like seeing a non-white girl in the role of Emily Fields.
Taylor Swift is gracing the April cover of InStyle UK, looking as gorgeous as ever in a gray couture gown, but it’s what the singer is saying inside that is sure to get everyone’s attention.
So listen up, Harry Styles and John Mayer: Taylor is totally cool with you writing songs about her. Why? Well, mostly because she’s bound to write a tune or two about you somewhere along the way. "If I’m gonna write songs about my exes they can write songs about me,” she said in the issue, out March 7. “That’s how it works.”
My, my, how our "Pretty Little Liars" have grown! Sure, Emily, Spencer, Hanna and Aria are still in high school, contending with a troupe of treacherous texters, but they're also covering the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly! From Rosewood to Hollywood—not even A could ruin this moment! (Er, we think.)
The starlets themselves took to Twitter today to bask in their honor:
"So this is cool. The girls and I got to cover Entertainment Weekly @EW for this week. pic.twitter.com/5fqwzt8R," Lucy Hale wrote this morning.
And, rather fittingly, much of the cover story focuses on the ABC Family series' broad social reach—from good ol' Facebook to of-the-moment Keek.
We've already heard tons from Selena Gomez about her uncharacteristically adult role in "Spring Breakers," but let's not forget that this gritty indie drama about criminal college co-eds features another Disney girl gone wild: Vanessa Hudgens went bad-ass and blonde for her turn as one of the fearsome foursome in this film, and she's talking all about it in this spring's issue of Paper mag, where she sported some boundary-pushing looks that firmly establish her as a girl unafraid of risky business.
Those hoping for a glimpse of the Vanessa of old won't find her in these pages; sporting vampy lipstick and a Joan Jett-esque hairstyle, the actress looks much more rock-n-roll than "High School Musical." And in her interview, she said that making the transition to less-wholesome roles after her family friendly beginnings has been a long time coming.
Okay, wow. Can we talk for a sec about how freakin' gorgeous Dakota Fanning looks in the March issue of Glamour? Not that we're surprised—the girl has been in the public eye since forever, and we knew she'd shed the mantle of child stardom in favor of more adult projects—but her appearance in the magazine comes with a definitive declaration that Dakota is, officially, all grown up. And with her effortlessly glamorous spread and candid interview, we have to agree.
For her part, Dakota still hasn't let stardom go to her head; she shows the same poise and grounded attitude that's always set her apart from the highly visible, hard-partying Hollywood crowd, even as she's getting more attention for her red-carpet appearances. Asked whether she's enjoying her moment in the style spotlight, she replied, "It’s really fun when you’re getting dressed for something. It’s not when you’re in the rain with an umbrella and trying to carry a case of water"—a reference to a much-scrutinized photo of the actress running errands in New York, sans makeup and... well, some other stuff. Or in her words: "Yep, that’s me, alone, coming from Duane Reade. I’m not wearing a bra. Deal with it."
With the just-released trailer for Harmony Korine's gritty, grungy romp "Spring Breakers," actress Selena Gomez made good on her promise to "shock" fans who know her best from the family friendly Disney series "Wizards of Waverly Place" and her candy-pop music career. And, indeed, Selena bares a lot in the fresh footage—and not just because she's clad almost exclusively in a bikini. There's a certain level of vulnerability inherent in the role—one of many topics the 20-year-old tackled in her February cover story for Nylon magazine.
"It was my first audition in years," she recalled. "I definitely felt that with my first stepping-out role, I should choose something that I could understand a little more. I was really nervous, but Harmony took a chance with me. He said, 'You live in this bubble, and I'm going to take you out of it, but you have to trust me.'"
And trust him she did, wrapping a project unlike any she'd done previously, while making a bevy of new BFFs along the way.
We've been waiting forever for the buzz to start buzzing in advance of "The Hunger Games" sequel "Catching Fire"—and alas, we've got to wait a whole lot longer before the movie hits theaters—but in the interim, at least we've got this: the first look in Entertainment Weekly, which features a giant spread of behind-the-scenes intel and interviews with the movie's stars, and a seriously crushworthy cover featuring Jennifer Lawrence and Sam Claflin in their Capitol-issue full-body bathing suits. (Although fans will no doubt be disappointed to see that the shot of Sam in his clingy spandex swimwear cuts off just shy of the interesting parts. Oh, EW, how you tease.)
Meanwhile, Jennifer Lawrence is busy doing what she does best: acting ridiculous in her signature omg-can-we-please-be-BFFs style. Among her soundbites from the interview:
It's too bad Brown University doesn't offer credits in Cover Modeling 101, because starlet Emma Watson would be on her, like, fifth master's degree by now. The "Perks of Being a Wallflower" star—clad all in black and sporting some seriously pouty red lips—graces February's Marie Claire UK, in which she opens up about about her increasingly impressive career and her personal priorities.
It's no secret the 22-year-old hasn't taken much of a break since the "Harry Potter" franchise cast its last spell in 2011. In between college courses, Emma's worked on numerous projects including "Perks," "My Week With Marilyn" and the upcoming "Bling Ring." But that's the way Emma likes it. "I'm a bit OCD about perfectionism," she admitted to the magazine. "I'm my own worst critic. I think that's really hard but it also spurs me on."
