It’s hard to believe the career that Logan Lerman is having at the young age of 20. He’s already skyrocketing to fame with his latest lead role in the cult-followed novel turned feature film, The Perks of Being a Wallflower. His story is truly inspiring and exactly the reason why Fault decided to feature him this month. “Logan is a young man who, by virtue of his accomplishments, has already proven his ability at the highest level despite his relatively young age.” Here’s a peak inside the mag:
On working on “The Perks of Being a Wallflower”…
“I was immediately drawn to it, because it just felt so familiar to me. Then, after reading it, I fell in love with the story. Usually, it takes a little while after reading material to feel invested in it, or even to get a realization that it’s something I want to be in. This was immediate. After the first five pages, I was hooked and I knew I wanted to be a part of it.”
On starting his career at a young age…
“I started at a really young age-like a crazy age to start working. It was just so accessible, going on auditions and living in Los Angeles.” Lerman booked his first gig at two years old, and then picked it up as a career when he was 12. (He says this as if most 12-years-old know what they want to focus on for the rest of their lives.) “I only got back into because I had an interest in filmmaking and, well, what better way to learn about film than to be on set and act again?”
To commemorate W magazine’s 40th anniversary in circulation, the publication has recruited four Hollywood actresses to stroll down 40 years of fashion, scandals, art and beautiful people. I’m sure Jennifer Lawrence is a little annoyed she posed for the magazine last month dressed like a plucked turkey and not for these wicked collector covers. I know I would be.
Snapped by Steven Klein, Rooney Mara, Mia Wasikowska, Scarlett Johannson and Keira Knightley appear on four different covers representing a different decade. Keira rules the 2000s in a Chanel braided tweed jacket, while Scarlett rocks the 1990s in a Dolce & Gabbana silk lace dress and silk and lace bodysuit, accessorized with a nose piercing and dark red lips. Mia powers up the 1980s in a Balenciaga wool jacquard bustier. Lastly, Rooney swings the 1970s in Prada and a pimpin’ Albertus Swanepoel hat. Check out the other covers and each girl’s thoughts on their respective decade below.
“I think skinny jeans and micro-miniskirts are very unfriendly. I’ve been known to wear both, but on some days it seems like they were invented to make you feel bad about yourself.”
Is it just me or does it feel like Rihanna is getting a little overexposed. I mean seriously. She has her seventh studio album coming out this November, she’s going on a world tour again and she’s gracing magazine covers like crazy. When can this girl just take a break from the spotlight to actually focus on releasing a quality track that’s really going to blow us away? You can’t actually tell me that she expected Diamonds to be a run away smash. Don’t get me wrong, I am loving the single but when are we going to get another epic Rihanna song like Only Girl In The World?
In any case, this Rihanna reign isn’t letting up so in the meantime, I’m just going to embrace it and share some exciting news. On Friday via Twitter, Rihanna announced that she was once again going to be gracing the cover of Vogue magazine in the US. Her first cover hit shelves in April of last year. She’s also graced Vogue covers in the UK and in Italy. The cover photo was shot by famed photographer Annie Lebibovitz. Rihanna’s short haircut looks stunning with her red lipstick and lacey dress backdropped by a dry, grassy knoll reminiscent of her We Found Love video.
Brad Pitt does a little bit of role play for his latest magazine cover. The 48-year-old actor reunites with photographer Steven Klein for the October/November 2012 cover of Interview Magazine. Pitt plays dress-up for a fashion editorial where he’s seen wearing various looks including sequined jackets, deconstructed knitwear and rugged denim. He also sports a eyeliner, an eye patch and even dreadlocks in the playful photo shoot.
For the accompanying interview, Pitt sits down with director Guy Ritchie. The two worked previously together on the 2000 film Snatch. Ritchie asks the Se7en actor questions ranging from his future in film, family and his upcoming political drama, Killing Them Softly. Check out a few quotes from his sitdown with Ritchie and photos styled by Ludivine Poiblanc below.
“Well, I just want to avoid confusion with this film and say I’m a big supporter of Obama, and I think he’s our best answer for the next four years.”
NBC’s Chicago Fire finally premieres this week on Thursday, October 10. It’s about friggin’ time, if you ask me. I don’t believe for one second that Dick Wolf’s firefighting drama will be anything revolutionary, but I have to thank the über producer for hiring Taylor Kinney. Now I, along with his legion of fans, can have our fill of Kinney on a weekly basis. I just hope there’s a lot of “hose” and “pole sliding” action ;)
To make sure his fans sample Chicago Fire, the 31-year-old actor poses for a couple of magazines- Bullett & Men’s Book. For Bullett, Taylor sports a bushy beard while caressing his pumped-up arms and chest. I would to, if I was him. Just look at them. For Men’s Book (appropriately enough Chicago edition), Kinney channels his inner fashionista to show Fall’s best looks. Check out both photo shoots below along with a few quotes from his interviews.
Yeah, it was great. We went there a few months ago to film the pilot in March and we shadowed firemen within the city. We went to three or four different firehouses. The local community and firefighters were giving us a hand and showing us the ropes of the city and the districts, where they worked, and the differences between the rescue squad, the truck guys, engine guys, and paramedics. I really saw the camaraderie between these people. It’s in their blood to be able to go and do these things on a daily basis, to put themselves in harm’s way, and then to let go when they leave work. They’re a special breed of people.
For the third time, Entertainment Weekly has compiled a collection of our favorite actors from our favorite TV shows past for a little pop culture nostalgia. The issue contains ten casts back together for a photo shoot and quick blurb. And as a special treat, fans of Clueless, Arrested Development and Melrose Place are in for a special treat with three, limited edition covers of their own available for purchase.
With the cast of Arrested Development about to debut 10, brand new episodes on Netflix, its fair to say that the Bluths are back; at least, for a limited time anyways. Portia de Rossi explained to EW what it was like to be back and working together.
“We all walked onto the set and we just sat around and stared at each other, and it was surreal. Everybody looked exactly the same and they acted exactly the same, both in character and in between takes. Body language was the same, the same old jokes, the same old eye rolls. It was really amazing.” I personally cannot wait to check out these new episodes. Check out the other limited edition covers below.
Have you seen ABC’s promos for its upcoming new drama, Nashville? Doesn’t Hayden Panettiere’s character remind you of a tarted up Taylor Swift? I’m sure that’s what the producers had in mind. It’s definitely smart of them to continue to carve out the character in Taylor’s mold. For inspiration, they might look to Glamour’s November 2012 issue where the country superstar graces the cover.
The 22-year-old singer looks, appropriately enough, glamorous in the issue. Donning sequined and flower outfits, Swift sparkles in every shot. As always, the photos are accompanied with an interview where Taylor tells the publication the “stuff she usually only tells her girlfriends.” From her celebrity BFFs like Selena Gomez and Emma Stone to ex-loves like John Mayer, nothing is off grounds. Check out the images and quotes from the issue which hits newsstands on October 9.
“I met Emma when I was 17, and I met Selena when I was 18. So they’ve experienced all of this with me, and they’ve also experienced their own amazing success, and somehow through all of it, we’ve stayed close.”
Why have only one cover featuring the boys of One Direction, when you can have five more with each of the members going solo and fronting their very own. That’s exactly what British magazine Fabulous did. Their collectible set proved such a hit, they’re already sold out. Luckily for a couple of lucky fans, the publication is giving away two sets of One Direction collectable covers.
I have to say, excuse the pun, but all the guys look “fabulous” in their respective covers and photo shoot for Britain’s biggest glossy. What makes each cover even better is the quote associated with each guy. Before checking out the images, try to match up the following quotes with the correct 1D guy. Personally, cougar-loving Harry Styles’ quote is the easiest to match up.
