GQ Magazine: July 2018 – Bill Skarsgård

Castle Rock star Bill Skarsgård is featured in the July 2018 issue of GQ Magazine.

From the digital issue:

Not long after playing the child-eating psycho clown Pennywise in last year’s remake of It, Bill Skarsgård found himself in a nightmare of his own: fame. “I think it’s easy for people to think of celebrity as something attractive. That aspect of it scares the shit out of me,” says the 27-year-old.

The Swedish actor appeared in Deadpool 2, stars in Hulu’s Stephen King-inspired Castle Rock and has a small role in September’s feminist revenge fantasy Assassination Nation. In terms of acting, he finds a quiet confidence in acknowledging that he is only, in his words, “pretty good.”

He has an idea to being some anonymity back into his life. The plan? To run away from it all. “I’m going to Japan.” He’s joking. We hope.

Castle Rock airs Wednesdays on Hulu.

Cosmopolitan Sri Lanka: July 2018 – Mandy Moore

This Is Us star Mandy Moore is featured in the July 2018 issue of Cosmopolitan Sri Lanka.

From the digital issue:

With the megabit drama This Is Us, Mandy Moore has firmly shed her pop-princess vibe to embrace a bolder, ballsier attitude.

Marriage is a major theme of the show. What was your own parents’ union like?

“They were high school sweethearts married for 30 years. It was hard to imagine one without the other, so their breakup was a tough blow, even when I was in my 20s.”

It is true you met your fiance on Instagram?

“I heard Taylor’s music on iTunes. I saw that his band had a new album coming out, and I posted it on Instagram that it was going to be my record of the summer. He wrote me a thank-you email and said I should come to a concert. We had the most epic three-hour first date.”

Biggest misconception about yourself?

“People assume I’m polite and sometimes that gets mistaken for being weak or a pushover. No way! Also, I’m not short – I’m 5’10”

This Is Us returns with new episodes in the Fall on NBC.

Redbook Magazine: July/August 2018 – Alicia Silverstone

American Woman star Alicia Silverstone is featured in the July/August 2018 issue of Redbook Magazine.

In the issue:

You might say that Alicia Silverstone is having a moment, but that would be shortsighted. In the more than two decades since the 41-year-old became mega-famous for her turn as Cher Horowitz in Clueless, she’s stirred the creative pot now and then with a role onscreen or onstage, but mostly put acting on the back burner.

Instead, she’s been focused on animal advocacy and nurturing a vegan wellness empire that includes a thriving website (The Kind Life), two books (the New York Times best-selling The Kind Diet and The Kind Mama), and a top-selling brand of plant-based vitamins called MyKind Organics.

“I went on a quest to change the world … and then one day I went, ‘Wait, I want to act too. What’s going on?'” she says.

Her next role, as ’70s mom Bonnie Nolan in American Woman, is set to land her back in the spotlight and at the top of must-watch lists.

It is dishy, glamorous, and celebratory of ballsy women — exactly what you’d expect from a story based on the life of the mother of a Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star (Kyle Richards, who is co-executive producer).

Like Bonnie, Alicia recently split with her husband (and the father of her son, Bear Blu, 7). So Redbook caught up with the busier-than-ever mom to find out how she’s juggling her new roles.

Do you see yourself in Bonnie?

“Well, Bonnie’s a much more irresponsible mother than I am [laughs]. But she adores her kids. At that time women didn’t act and have children, so she gave up her dream to become a mother and wife. We’ve all gotten stuck in life and accepted things because they’re good enough. But when her husband crosses her, she chooses not to accept it. She doesn’t ponder, Oh, shoot, [what should I do?]. She’s a badass, but also vulnerable — that’s what makes her so interesting.”

Like Bonnie, you’re now a single working mother. What has that transition been like for you?

“Obviously, it’s heartbreaking. You don’t ever think you’ll be apart when you get married. All I can really say is that we’ll co-parent Bear together, and this is completely a good thing for both of us.”

Oh, are you dating?

“Yes, I go on dates, and I find it very fascinating meeting interesting, intelligent, different people. I’m super excited about being available and open to whatever’s next. Of course, there’s tons about it that’s confusing.”

American Woman airs on Paramount Network.

GQ South Africa: July/August 2018 – Kit Harington

Game of Thrones star Kit Harington is featured in the July/August 2018 issue of GQ South Africa.

From the digital issue:

At the end of the final season of Game of Thrones (set to air in 2019), Kit Harington will return to real life. After spending ten years living on the edge of The Wall, dying, and coming back to life again, he’s ready to lay down his sword. We find out what he’s doing after Winter is over.

It was almost immediately after drama school that Kit Harington was approached for the role that would make him globally famous. He was not aware of George R.R. Martin’s books and was only drawn to participate in the pilot because of the company producing it. “It was HBO, and that’s all that really mattered to me But the script? I didn’t really understand it. I read it twice and thought, ‘this is the most bizarre thing ever. I don’t quite get why they’re doing it, but I’m in.'”

What will he miss when Game of Thrones is over? Iceland, the location of Westeros’ north beyond the wall, where much of 2011’s second season was filmed. “That season was the most significant because we realized the show was successful, we were suddenly in this incredible location and I was with the girl I fell in love with,” he says. That girl, Rose Leslie, played Ygritte with whom Snow fell in love with before she died. But in real life the pair recently tied the know. They now share a house in the English countryside. “It’s in Suffolk – it’s lush – in the middle of the country.”

Game of Thrones returns in 2019 with new episodes on HBO.

Marie Claire Australia: July 2018 – Isla Fisher

Arrested Development star Isla Fisher is featured in the July 2018 issue of Marie Claire Australia.

In the issue:

For more than two decades, Isla Fisher has been charming Hollywood with glamour and giggles. Sitting down with Marie Claire at the exclusive Chateau Marmont, the Perth-born actress opens up about the joys and challenges of raising a family in LA.

“Juggling a family in LA isn’t easy,” says Fisher, 42, who has three young children Olive, 10, Elula, seven, and Montgomery, three. “There’s not really a culture of bringing your kids to dinner parties or to restaurants past 6pm. I tend to entertain at home because I want to be with my family – it’s easier to put your kids to bed and have a wine with friends.”

Fisher and Baron Cohen met at a party in 2002, and she describes that moment as like “winning the lottery.” Married since 2010, Fisher puts their attraction down to being “polar opposites” and reveals their relationship success is due to “a shared sense of humour and a willingness to be married.”

The family is planning to return to Australia for Christmas this year and Fisher has dreams of relocating. “I have this secret fantasy of slowing down, moving to Byron Bay, getting off the grid and sitting on the sand with a Vegemite sandwich,” she admits.

Arrested Development is currently streaming on Netflix.

Regard Magazine: June 2018 – Lela Loren

Power star Lela Loren is featured in the June 2018 issue of Regard Magazine.

From the digital issue:

The success of Power is phenomenal. How have you appreciated the development of Angela’s character throughout the seasons?

“Throughout the seasons, no matter what happens she’s completely unable to stop loving Jamie. She tries to stamp it out, but fails continually. This gives such a human, vulnerable, even childish counterpoint to her slick professionalism. Playing that contradiction is incredibly rewarding.”

There’s always been this back and forth tug of war between Angela and Ghost (Omari Hardwick). Despite some decisions, Angela is a strong woman that’s not afraid to fail. How do you think that translates to the audience?

“Though strong and intelligent, Angela is a character who doesn’t play by the narrow rules of society and morality. The power of Angela’s character is that whether you love her or hate her, she completely engages you.”

What can you share with us about Angela, her relationships and the rest of the cast for season two?

“It’s a season of ‘strange bed fellows.’ I’ll leave it at that.”

The season premiere of Power airs Sunday, July 1st on Starz.
