James McAvoy is the latest to cover Nylon Guys Magazine‘s September 2014 issue that is out on newsstands now.
Here’s what the Scottish actor shared with the mag:
On his career:
“For a long time, I was playing the normal guy in an exceptional world, or the normal guy who was in a relationship with someone much more weird and interesting. I was holding the audience’s hand, guiding them into a world they weren’t familiar with, keeping them onside when things got grotesque. Basically I was letting everybody else do the fireworks.”
On his past roles:
“The last two or three years have been so unlike what I was doing for the 10 years before them. There’s a part I’ve been offered and really want to do, but I was worried about taking it because the character is a proper mental case. And I feel like it’s been a couple of years of solely playing mental cases.”
Michael Fassbender on James X-Men set pranks:
“Oh, he’s lethal! You’ll find him hiding underneath cars, waiting for you. He once tried to break into my trailer through the skylight. It’s like being in one of those PINK PANTHER films, and he’s Cato jumping out of the freezer. Just when you think the day’s over, you come home to find James sitting on your toilet with a BB gun.”
Chris Pratt is the latest to cover Esquire Magazine‘s September 2014 issue that is out on newsstands now.
Here’s what the Guardians of the Galaxy star shared with the mag:
On his Guardians audition:
“When GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY was pitched to me, I said, ‘I don’t think so.’ I just didn’t picture myself getting the role. I didn’t want to go and embarass myself like I did when I auditioned for G.I JOE a couple of years previously. I went in there, and halfway through I saw the director’s eyes just glaze over. It made sense– I was a little heavy and out of shape. I was not gonna play someone from G.I Joe. I did not like like a G.I Joe action figure come to life.”
On coming up with jokes:
“I’ve always pretended to improv. Sneaking in a joke like I’ve stumbled on it, coming up with good comebacks for things that haven’t even happened. My whole life I’ve done that.”
Adam Driver is the latest to cover GQ Magazine‘s September 2014 issue.
Here’s what the What If star shared with the mag:
On being a Marine:
“It’s hard to describe. You’re put in these very heightened circumstances, and you learn a lot about who people are at the core, I think. You end up having this very intimate relationship where you would, like, die for these people. It just seemed like a badass thing to do, to go and shoot machine guns and serve your country. To not get to go with that group of people I had been training with was… painful.”
On going to Juilliard after the Marines:
“I wanted a challenge. The Marines Corps is supposed to be the toughest and most rigorous of its class. Obviously the stakes are different. You have the risk of getting shot or killed in one and just embarassed in the other. I thought, this will be easy.”
On his burgeoning career:
“It’s very nice. But in a way, I don’t feel like I’ve really put in my dues. Like it doesn’t feel earned.”
“Life’s shitty, and we’re all gonna die. You have friends, and they die. You have a disease, someone you care about had a disease, Wall Streep people are scamming everyone, the poor get poorer, the rich get richer. That’s what we’re surrounded by all the time. We don’t understand why we’re here, no one’s giving us an answer, religion is vague, your parents can’t help because they’re just people, and it’s all terrible, and there’s no meaning to anything. What a terrible thing to process! Every. Day. And then you go to sleep. But then sometimes, things can suspend themselves for like a minute, and then every once in a while there’s something where you find a connection.”
Katie Holmes is the latest to cover DuJour Magazine‘s Fall 2014 issue.
Here’s what The Giver star shared with the mag:
On her marriage not being the cause of her acting dry spell:
“It’s the life of an actor. We don’t really have a lot of choice in the matter. You have dry spells, and then you have times when there is a lot of opportunity.”
On not letting fame go to her head:
“Even early on, when I was a young actor and all of a sudden people knew who I was, my dad told me, ‘Don’t let that change how you live your life.’ I’ve always sort of approached it that way. You have to continue to do the things you want to do and not let outside forces dictate.”
On being a working mom:
“I totally admire women who go back tow ork six weeks after giving birth but when she was little, I was not ready. I was a very nervous mother– like, sleeping next to her crib– and i was in that mode for a long time.”
Chloe Grace Moretz covers Company Magazine‘s September 2014 issue.
Here’s what the If I Stay star shared with the mag:
“My mom doesn’t let me shop in expensive places just yet. Things I do have are gifts– they’ve been really sweet giving me stuff. When I lived in London, I used to go to Kensington High Street, go to TK MAxx and buy the four seasons late brand stuff in the Gold Label section!”
On hanging with Brooklyn:
“Who’s better?– I don’t know! I mean, he had a pretty small skateboard, and I had more of a long board. I think he’s a risk taker, like a typical guy, weaving in and out of people. I’m a ‘safety boarder’– I don’t want to break any bones!”
On her hate with selfies:
“You can look at my account– I hate posting selfies. It’s just not my thing– it’s, like, ridiculous.”
On her PLL obsession:
“PRETTY LITTLE LIARS was my favourite show, I used to watch that all the time. Now, I’m obsessed with HOUSE OF CARDS. I love THE X FACTOR too– it’s so funny; so much better than the stuff in America.”
Kristen Stewart is the latest to cover Elle Magazine‘s September 2014 issue that is out on newsstands now.
Here’s what the actress shared with the mag:
On her growing career:
“Never at any point have I sat down and plotted how I should proceed from here on. As soon as you start thinking about your career as a trajectory– like, as if you’re going to miss out on some wave or momentum– then you’re never doing anything for yourself anyway. Then you’re truly, actually, specifically working for the public. You’re turning yourself into a bag of chips.”
On not being a people pleaser:
“Now I feel like if I smiled for a paparazzi photo– not that I ever would– that’s exactly what people would be desecrating me for. They’d be like, ‘now you’re going to give it up, now you’re a sellout.’ like, okay. What do you want? What would you like?”
On when she realized the impact of Twilight:
“The day the move came out there was a picture of me– in a New York Post, I think. I was sitting on my front porch, smoking a pipe with my ex-boyfriend and dog. And I was like, ‘Oh sh-t, well, I have to be aware of that.”
Julia Roberts is the latest to cover InStyle Magazine‘s September 2014 issue that is out on newsstands now.
Here’s what the Normal Heart star shared with the mag:
On her 12 year marriage to Danny Moder:
“I always say… that there are only two reasons why people fight: to be right, or to create peace and harmony. If you know which your reason is, that really illuminates why you’re having that conversation. Everything that comes out of your moth should be properly focused on the point at issue and not on what you think the point should be.”
On being viewed as one of Hollywood’s most beautiful women:
“I think I’ve always sort of been on the more boyish spectrum of girls. For example, I’ve never been chosen as ‘one of the top-five hottest actresses in a bikini’. And honestly, it’s a godsend. When I was younger, I’d think, ‘Oh, I’m the prettiest one. It’s not Halle Berry. It’s not!’ But it is, you know?”
On her home life:
“It’s like between grocery shopping, the cooking and cleaning up everything– it’s a lot. But it’s not anything that millions of other moms don’t do all the time, so there’s nothing so great about me doing it.”
