Nicole Kidman lands the March cover of InStyle Magazine, to promote her new movie “Grace of Monaco.” Will this movie ever be released? I don’t think it’s a good sign…. but that’s just me.

Anyway, in the new issue, the Australian tells the magazine that she’s happiest in the country. “I’m very country at heart,” says the Oscar winner. “I have a real desire to be outdoors, a desire for simplicity—a slightly slower, relaxed approach to life. A community, not a big-city feel. That’s what I grew up with, and it’s what I prefer.”

Kidman, 46, has been married to country star Keith Urban since 2006 and the couple have two children together, daughters Sunday and Faith. The family calls Nashville, Tenn. home, but they have found a comfort in their often vagabond lifestyle. Between Kidman’s filming and Urban’s tours, the Australian–raised duo has grown very accustomed to life on the road — and even life apart.

“Keith and I are both gypsies at heart. We can make our home wherever we are. The girls are like that too now, so we take them everywhere,” she said, crediting Urban’s tour bus for showing her most of America.

However, two busy careers mean Kidman and Urban aren’t always able to accommodate each others’ schedules, with Kidman telling InStyle, “For every single night he’s away, he leaves me a love letter. Every single night of our relationship.”

A little known fact about Nicole is that she was actually born in Hawaii. “I used to pretend to the kids at school that I was born right on Waikiki Beach in Honolulu,” she said. “I was actually delivered in a hospital—but it sounded good, and they believed me.”

The 46-year-old actress will next star as the iconic princess and actress Grace Kelly in ‘Grace of Monaco.’ The film will premiere at Cannes this May. An actress who is used to taking risks, Nicole said “I always try to push through fear. People always say, ‘Oh, you take such risks,’ or ‘You’re brave.’ And I’m like, ‘Well, if you only knew—inside I’m really frightened!”

Allison Williams of ‘Girls’ covers the latest InStyle Magazine!

allison-williams-instyleuk1

The beautiful Allison Williams lands the February (WTH) cover of InStyle UK to promote the third season of ‘Girls.’ I love Allison. Her character sort of makes me insane on ‘Girls,’ but I love-hate her. I’m sad her on-screen boyfriend has left the show, because I think he is half of the reason why I like her character. It will be interesting to see what they do with her this season. Will she still be as uptight?

There isn’t much from the interview that’s been released so far…. but here’s what we did get. She talked about Lena Dunham (of course) and her BFF Katy Perry.

On Lena Dunham: “When we first met, I felt like I’d known her forever — it was weird. I’m very protective; it’s in my wiring. My rule is, ‘if it isn’t bugging Lena then it’s fine with me.”

On the success and criticism of Girls: “[The praise] was like a tidal wave and I knew at some point it would all have to come washing back the other way, that there was going to be an equal and opposite reaction.”

On Katy Perry: “Talk about someone who wears it lightly. She’s the most followed person on Twitter and still somehow has time to ask, ‘So, how did the photo-shoot go?’”

On playing Princess Diana: “When I was younger I played Princess Diana. I was in junior high school and I wore a blonde wig. I was obsessed with her.”

Rooney Mara’s 7 Beauty Must-Haves

rooney-mara-cover-shoot-4

 

InStyle magazine chatted with Rooney Mara to find out the secret to her gorgeous skin and  get the scoop on her favorite products. To read more check out the current issue of InStyle magazine on newsstands now.

Your complexion is the envy of every beauty editor I know. Please don’t tell us it’s just good genes.
People are going to hate me for saying this, but I really don’t have a regimen. I don’t use a lot of products because my skin is so sensitive, though I always wear sunscreen, usually Chanel and Dermalogica. I try to eat healthfully and hardly ever drink alcohol. When you eat the right things, you don’t need that many products.

And the Rooney Mara don’t-hate-me-because-my-skin-looks-airbrushed diet consists of …
Well, I’m gluten-free. A bunch of people in my family have celiac disease, so I stopped eating wheat about a year ago, and right away I noticed a difference. I’m also vegan; I basically eat only fruits and vegetables. I’ve never felt better than I do now.

Let’s talk hair. Your jet-black strands and blunt baby bangs may well be in the Pinterest hall of fame for “aspirational cut.”
We did short bangs for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, but it was when they grew out that people really started to like them. As for color, I’ve been lighter, but I prefer being brunette. I find that people with dark hair don’t need to wear as much makeup.

Professional pluckers tell me they get dozens of requests for “Rooney Mara brows.” Are they high-maintenance?
They’re actually no-maintenance—that’s why they’re so prominent!

Taylor Swift lands the November cover of InStyle, and she talks all about love.

Taylor Swift lands the November cover of InStyle Magazine, although it looks like a Christmas cover, doesn’t it?

The 23-year-old singer looks beautiful on the new cover. According to Celebrity makeup artist, Taylor is wearing Chanel’s Rouge Allure Lip Color in Pirate for Taylor’s lipstick. I wish I could pull off a red like that!

Taylor admits, “I feel most confident when I have a red lip on,” and I think she looks great!

On her current love life, she admits, “I think that you can love people without it being the great love. Ed [Sheeran] said something that really resonated with me. He says there are different kinds of love: There’s physical attraction, mental attraction, and emotional attraction; there’s also comfort and obsession. You need to have all of those things in one person. You have to mentally respect them, be physically attracted, and have a comfort level. You’re obsessed with them, yet you also know they’re going to stay. I’ve never had that in one person.”

On looking for love. “I think [my taste] needs to change. My friends tease me about the fact that if someone seems bad or shady or like they have a secret, I find them incredibly interesting. That’s just a phase I’ve been in lately. I don’t think this should be how I proceed in life. It’s important to be self-aware about these things because you don’t want to end up with that guy.”

When searching for the right one, “Sometimes you know after two dates that you’re not the right fit. And sometimes you know you’re not the right fit, and you fall for it anyway. One thing I’ve learned that I’m proud of – drum roll, please – is when to walk away. I’ve had some short relationships because I know when to do that.”

Here’s Taylor’s lipstick. Wish I could pull it off! BUY HERE
