Featured Article: Nina Dobrev & Vanessa Hudgens for Cosmopolitan US September 2018


Nina Dobrev and Vanessa Hudgens have a few things in common: They’re both about to turn 30. They’re both Coachella goddesses who can ignite a trend with the tap of a ’gram. And they’ve both dismantled Disney-fied images. Good-bye, PG-rated teen idoldom; hello, complicated splendor of womanhood. First stop? Their new big-screen comedy, Dog Days (opens August 10th).

Vanessa on her favorite day with her BFFs: “My favorite day with my girlfriends is having everyone over to my house, lying by the pool, drinking rosé, listening to music, and dancing.”

Nina on being careful on what she shares on social media: “I don’t typically post photos with significant others, which is funny, because when I do post a photo with a guy, the media will pick it up and assume I’m dating him. It makes me laugh because, in reality, if he is on my Instagram, that means I’m not dating him!”

Nina and Vanessa on if they’ve had any #MeToo encounters:

Nina: “Like any woman in every industry, yes. Comments have been made. People have said things that are inappropriate. I’ve been able to handle myself and speak up for the most part. But I have seen a lot.”

Vanessa: “I have been very fortunate not to have had any direct run-ins, but I’ve seen it happen. I’m grateful that we’re living in an age when women are finally heard.”

Nina on her daredevil side: “I am attracted to doing scary things. I might have a slight addiction to firsts. When you’ve never done something before, you don’t know what to expect. It’s the fear of the unknown. It keeps you on your toes.”

Featured Article: Mila Kunis for Cosmopolitan US August 2018


In the August issue of Cosmopolitan US (photo by Kai Z Feng, styled by Kristen Saladino), 34-year-old actress and producer Mila Kunis dishes to her latest, SNL’s Kate McKinnon, her friend and costar in this month’s big-screen comedy The Spy Who Dumped Me, about secret fantasies, career superpowers, and so much more.

On social media—and why she doesn’t participate: “I was so late to that train. I remember at some point my roommate was like, “You know, there’s a thing called Facebook,” and I was like, “What is this Facebook? Who’s gonna poke each other? That’s just weird.” And then Ashton and I reconnected and started talking. He used to be incredibly forward-thinking with social media, when the intent was to connect to people. But it took an ugly turn and became all about who can be the loudest, who can be the angriest and the most negative. Then it’s just not a fun game to play.”

On rumors about herself that run in the tabloids: “I don’t read anything about myself. I genuinely don’t know what’s written about me…other than I know that I’m pregnant about once a year and my husband and I are getting a divorce once a year. I know this because I go down the grocery store aisle, and I see it on the cover of magazines and I’m like, Oh boy, okay!… The only thing that’s upsetting is my parents and my grandparents sometimes get confused… At one point when I was pregnant, [the tabloids] said that I had an emergency and was rushed to the hospital, and my face was on the cover. The amount of stress that caused my family, nobody will understand. Although my dad is always very hopeful that the pregnancies are true. He’s always like, “Is there really another?””

On her ultimate dream as a producer and an actor: “I just sat down three days ago to write out my dream in five years. And I realized very quickly that I didn’t dream big enough. And so I’ve been thinking about it for the past few days, like, What is my grand f**king dream for myself? I just want to be happy. I know that sounds incredibly lame, but I never want to stop learning or being challenged, and I never want to stop challenging my partner.” (source)


Featured Article: Kaley Cuoco for Cosmopolitan US May 2018


On walking down the aisle for the second time (to fiancée Karl Cook): “I honestly thought I wouldn’t get married again. My ex ruined that word for me. I married someone the first time who completely changed. The person I ended up with was not the person I originally met. And that wasn’t my fault—that was his. I knew how much I had to give and how much I wanted to receive. I knew I just had to be patient…I had to go through a lot of things, but it brought me to Karl.”

On The Big Bang Theory­—and being the second-highest-paid TV actress (behind Sophia Vergara): “I spent my entire 20s on this show. I didn’t have to fight for pay…Knowing what it feels like [to be paid as an equal], I will always take that stand for myself.”

On being a girl boss and running her own production company, Yes, Norman Productions: “I want to be a full-on girl boss. I’ve been in the business so long, and I’ve worked with the best. I don’t let people mess with me. I want to show girls out there that you can be cool, wear yoga clothes, and run your own f—king company. You don’t have to be a guy in a suit. I want this to be a big company. I want to be sitting down a few years from now and have so many projects going. That’s what I’m excited about.”
