Kristen Stewart lands the March cover of Marie Claire!

Marie-Claire-March-14-Kristen-Stewart-Cover

Kristen Stewart lands the March cover of Marie Claire, and she looks really beautiful, doesn’t she? I’ve always thought if this acting thing didn’t work out for her, she could definitely be a model. I think I like her more when she’s NOT talking, actually.

Anyway, the interview is now out, and  you can read it here. She opens up a bit more than she normally does about herself, and talks some about the mistakes she’s made. She talks about doing another “Snow White and the Huntsman” movie, and admits to writing poetry.

Here are some highlights.

How she picks the roles she plays: “Dude, I have no idea what I’m doing, and that’s kind of how I love it. I had no idea Twilight was going to be huge. Certain movies I’ve done I thought were going to be amazing did nothing. So it’s fun not having so much control. It’s kind of a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants lifestyle – it’s fun, but it’s scary as f–k. If it’s not scary, it’s usually – you kind of have to step back and go, ‘You’re probably making this decision because it’s right on paper.’ But unless you get that irking fear, it’s not right.”

On her M.O: “I’m kind of, like, an extremist. I really don’t want to be working unless I’m bleeding it. And if I’m not working, then don’t ever try to make a plan with me.”

On being judged: “I stand by every mistake I’ve ever made, so judge away.”

On Drugs: “I’m such a control freak. I’m glad I grew up in this era because I think if I grew up in my parents’ age of drugs and discovery and crazy sh-t, I don’t think I would do drugs well.”

The ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ sequel: While a Snow White & the Huntsman sequel is far-off, “it’s not where I thrive,” she says. “I really like being thrown into the unknown and then finding my way. I don’t want to show someone something. I want people to watch me find something.”

Natalie Portman stuns on the November cover of Marie Claire!

natalie-portman-marie-claire-mhu-nov131

Natalie Portman is all grown up! I guess I should stop saying that, considering she’s a 32-year-old married woman. I just always think of her as a child actress-grown up for some reason. She certainly doesn’t look 32, does she? She has some great jeans! Maybe it’s because she’s vegan.

Here are the photos from the November issue of Marie Claire. The only movie Natalie Portman has coming out soon is ‘Thor: The Dark Loki’ which I guess she might be promoting. I saw a trailer for this movie (after the jump) and it looks HORRIFIC. I mean really, really bad. I’m wondering why on earth Natalie would have done such a crappy movie. (And then I remembered she did ‘Your Highness’).

In other Natalie news, she and her family are moving to Paris! Natalie’s husband Benjamin Millepied accepted a job as the “director of dance” at the Paris Opera Ballet. She’s super excited to move, because Paris is a great place to be a vegan. “I’ve been vegetarian since I was nine and vegan on and off. At the moment we live in Los Angeles near Thai Town so we eat a lot of good vegan Thai food and there are also great pasta places nearby – a good pasta is probably my favorite dish. Paris is getting better for vegans – you can get anything there if you know where to look.”

Lena Dunham scores her first-ever fashion magazine cover!

Lena Dunham lands her first-ever fashion magazine cover on this month’s Marie Claire UK. In landing the cover, Lena gets a chance to show off her curves, which she is completely happy with – even proud of.

“My parents [painter Carroll Dunham and photographer Laurie Simmons] both have really healthy attitudes about their own bodies but also about the range of things that can be beautiful,” the 27-year-old Girls creator explains. “But they also just always made me feel pretty and cool and smart, even in the moments when I have known — and still know — that my body wasn’t fitting into a traditional Hollywood idea of the female body.”

Dunham continues that she learned to love her body from a very early age. “This could very easily be taken out of context, and I think it’s funny now, but I remember looking in the mirror as a kid and it would be like for an hour at a time, and I’d be like: ‘I’m just so beautiful. Everybody is so lucky that they get to look at me,’” she said. “And of course that changes as you get older, but I may have held on to that little-kid feeling that was me alone in my bathroom.”

Even though Lena spends much of her time on GIRLS naked, she says she does have an appreciation for fashion. “I’m not saying I am a great candidate for the cover of a fashion magazine,” she admits. “But I do love clothes. People are always surprised to hear that — they think I walk around in a washcloth or something.”

I love me some GIRLS…. I can’t wait for the new season to start!

Lea Michele covers Marie Claire, and talks about Cory, “he is the best person I know.”

This story is a sad one. Lea Michele covers the August issue of Marie Claire Mexico. She looks incredibly hot on the cover, wearing a blazer and black undies. This is the last interview she gave before her boyfriend Cory Monteith died from a drug overdose less than two weeks ago. Sources at the magazine say Cory accompanied Lea to the shoot which took place on June 7, and during the interview she gushed about him. The editor of this magazine released a statement expressing her sadness for Lea. She said that they were so in love when they came to the shoot. She said Lea was a complete professional, and when Cory showed up she was so happy about seeing him.

Marie Claire Mexico and Latin America Editor-in-Chief Ariadne Grant said, “Lea Michele arrived early with her beauty team and her agent and was always professional, dedicated and her experience was obvious on the photo shoot but showed another side of her personality, softer and more innocent, on the interview when she got all excited with some questions, she said she loved Mexico so much. That side was even more evident when Cory showed up almost at the end of the session, she was very happy about him being there.”

Grant added, “Cory showed up in great spirits and was very nice to everybody there; he even took pictures with whoever asked for it. He just asked for a Coke and stayed there watching the shooting until it was done. They were both very nice and obviously happy and in love, we are very disrupted by the unfortunate and untimely events. Our thoughts are with Lea.”

During her interview for the magazine, Lea Michele touched on her relationship with Monteith, saying, “It’s more interesting having a relationship with someone you work with because we get more attention because we play boyfriend and girlfriend on the show and we are also in real life. But he is the best person I know, he has made my life so incredible and I am so thankful for him and not only to have him as a partner but also as a coworker.”

The young actress continued to say that in a relationship, “It is important to have someone that supports you and encourage you, someone that makes you feel that you are unstoppable, that you can do anything in the world because you have him.”

The more you hear about the two of them, the sadder it gets. They really truly seemed to be so in love. I think they just adored each other. It’s incredibly sad that Cory’s demons got the better of him. From what her friends say, the two of them were talking marriage when he died. I can’t imagine the grief she’s going through.
