Kate Bosworth graces the latest issue of Australian Harper's Bazaar. In the issue, she talks about career growing up, how she stays grounded, and her adorable boyfriend James. Here are some highlights from the interview...
On her career during high school:
"I didn't want to be the 'child actress.' Some strange little part of me knew I had to go through those challenging teenage years and not be interrupted by Hollywood. I shot a few things over summer holidays like [TV series] Young Americans and Remember the Titans, but I wanted to take the time to study."
On how she stays grounded:
"Once you go through the experience of being dragged through the mud, you don't ever give a sh*t ever again. Being a public figure there's always this fear. 'Do they like me?' It's a high school thing. My tips are: 1. Don't read anything [written about you] — it's all-full of sh*t. 2. Have good people around you. 3. Laugh."
On helping boyfriend James discover his musical talent:
"He has always played and written music — it's the poet in him. I would always hear him strumming and say, 'James, you have to give this a go.' Being in a creative field, I understand how nerve-wracking it is to put yourself out there. My best friend's husband is a music producer and has a studio here. He's Dutch, James is British. I knew they'd smoke a lot of cigarettes, drink red wine, and have a blast recording the album."
