Featured Article: Halsey for Marie Claire US August 2018


Halsey’s had one hell of a year – from her Women’s March moment to her current Hopeless Fountain Kingdom world tour. Weathering the storms of her past, she’s charted an atypical course to stardom. Inside Marie Claire US’s August issue (cover photographed by Mark Seliger), the pop-songstress address her critics who challenge what she stands for, how performing allowing her to cope with her mental illness, the craziest thing she’s ever done, and what the future holds.

On her response to critics who question what she stands for: “In one year, I performed at the Nobel Peace Prize [Concert] in Oslo, donated $100,000 to Planned Parenthood, got my first Grammy nomination, showed my t*ts in Playboy, and did about 150 tequila shots. I did all those things, and it’s because I’m multidimensional.”

On how performing allows her to cope with mental illness: “I release endorphins, serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine. Like, it’s literally a drug response. I don’t manage my mental illness to keep up with my lifestyle; I manage my lifestyle to keep up with my mental illness.”

On enjoying her new-found success:Payton [her best friend] and me used to live on f*cking Hot Pockets, and now we’ve eaten caviar on three continents.”

On the craziest thing she’s ever done: “Shut down a highway in Mexico City [for a gun battle in the video for ‘Now or Never’].”

On what the future holds: “Once my tour is over, I feel like anything could happen. I could decide I want to move to Italy for a year and write. I could get pregnant. I finally have enough stability in my career where I can take a breath. I feel like I can let life happen.”

Featured Article: Amy Adams for Marie Claire US July 2018


In the interview with Marie Claire US, which takes place in Central Park – her favorite place in New York City – Amy Adams opens up about her new role as star and co-executive producer in HBO’s Sharp Objects (premiering July 08th), motherhood, aging, and allowing herself to explore her dark side.

On the creative freedom of becoming co-executive producer of HBO’s Sharp Objects: “To know you could be part of a creative conversation that you’re not invited to was frustrating. So, being an executive producer, I felt that I had the agency to offer my voice and, that was exhilarating.”

On exploring her dark side: “There’s just so much truth in the darkness and the sadness and I’m willing to explore it now in a different way. Before, I thought people wouldn’t like me or they would think I was crazy. Now I know I can navigate my own personal darkness and it won’t consume me.”

On husband Darren LeGallo’s relationship with their daughter: “It’s sexy to see him raising a girl and teaching her how a man should treat her in a lovely way.”

On aging: “I want to do everything I can that does not involve needles or knives.” The cover is photographed by Brigitte Lacombe. (source)

Featured Article: Emily Ratajkowski for Marie Claire US June 2018


Emily Ratajkowski gets radical for the June 2018 issue of Marie Claire US, on newsstands May 17th. From mastering social media to calling for social change, the outspoken actress and model has always been guided by what felt true to her. And she’s inspiring young women to claim ownership of their own bodies, sexuality, and agency.

On being taken seriously in Hollywood: “It’s actually something I’ve thought about a lot without ever saying seriousness in my head. I care a lot. I think I freak people out sometimes going into meeting with Hollywood producers…with f*cking guns blazing. I had something to prove, and it had very little to do with my acting ability or the way I looked. It was about the Take me seriously. Look me in the eye.”

On body confidence: “Boobs are funny. They hurt sometimes, and sometimes they’re the thing that makes me feel most powerful. They’re a key to my sexuality. They’re all those things.”

On marriage and making her own decisions: “People came after my marriage, like, ‘Wow. I give it three weeks.’ I’m like, ‘What?’ No one can take women seriously on any choices that they make, especially if they’re unique to them and they don’t play into the way we think women should get married. It’s a constant writing-off.”

Featured Article: Hailee Steinfeld for Marie Claire US February 2018


With a booming music career—more than 1.4 billion streams on Spotify, the lead single on the upcoming Fifty Shades Freed soundtrack—and an acting resume that already includes Oscar and Golden Globe nominations, there’s nothing can stop this young starlet! Inside the February issue of Marie Claire US, Steinfeld opens up about finding love, advice she would give to her younger self, using her platform for good, and many more.

On pursuing her music career: “As an actor, I’m masked by characters, protected by them. But as a musician, it’s my story, my voice, my face. It’s me on that stage talking about that horrible experience I went through and [saying,] ‘Here, I’m going to sing about it.’ It’s such a different kind of vulnerable. To connect with fans, there’s pressure in feeling like I have to do things that I’m uncomfortable with, in terms of opening up enough about myself.”

On finding love: “I’m trying to protect myself and have a bit of a guard up, but I also want to fall in love and know why love hurts.”

Advice she’d give to her younger self: “Listen to yourself. So many people will try and steer you in a certain direction— not saying that that’s the wrong direction at all—but you have to know what’s right for you. Trust yourself, follow your heart, and do what makes you happy. Don’t forget to live for yourself.”

On using her platform for good: “I’ve worked hard and gotten to a place where I have a voice: How can I use it? What can I, as a human, as an artist, do?”

Featured Article: Gwen Stefani for Marie Claire US Holiday 2017

On what heartbreak taught her: “What I learned was that my heartbreak was supposed to happen, that it was my purpose to write about and share my story. I met at least 50 to 100 people before each show on my tour and got to hear that my truth and my story translated, and I feel very lucky and honored knowing that.”

On finding spirituality: “…Spiritual exercise got me somewhere. Some people like to meditate, do yoga, or just take quiet time, but for me – instead of how you talk to yourself, you pray. You surrender and ask for guidance. It’s not all about you.”

On life with Blake Shelton – recently named People’s Sexiest Man Alive – and how they spend their time on Shelton’s ranch in Oklahoma: “It’s very tribal. Blake has a sister, she comes with her kids. We cook and get muddy and dirty. There are ATV’s. Being a mother of three boys, it’s kind of the perfect place. Everything is real now, whereas before, things didn’t seem so real.”

On what’s she interested to do next in music: “I would love to do something like [write a musical], just be a part of a writing thing, because that confidence has come back now, and I know I have something to offer. It used to be such a stress; there was so much doubt in me – now it’s like, ‘Well, just go and write and write a song.’” (source)


Featured Article: Mila Kunis for Marie Claire US November 2017


Kai Z Feng photographed the covers. Mila is wearing Louis Vuitton and Dior ensemble.

On the hurdle of making women-centric content in Hollywood: “I do sometimes come back from work like, ‘What the f*ck?’ But anger is good. It motivates us to strive to be better.” From self-proclaimed “spiraler” to Zen master: “I overthink. I’m super-dramatic. Something not that bad, in my mind, becomes a catastrophe. I go from zero to a hundred. It’s a problem.”

On what motherhood has taught her: “What motherhood shows you is how selfless you can get. I’m ragged tired. Who cares? My kids are healthy, I’m happy.’”

On what she wants to teach her daughter: “What I want my daughter to learn from me is the value of hard work.”

On power versus success: “The real question is: Does power equal success? I mean, look at Trump. Trump is powerful. It doesn’t mean he’s successful, right?”

On today’s political landscape and her hope for the future: “I have hope for the future. None of this is permanent, this is a phase…and we will come out of it as a country.” (source)

On the legacy she wants to leave: “I love black people. I love telling stories. I want these little girls to study me like I studied Meryl and Bette Davis and Carol Burnett. I want them to study my work, because I put a lot of work in, a lot of blood, sweat, and tears.”

On dating: “I would love to [be in a relationship], but he has to see how I move and deal with it, because I don’t have time to explain. I’ve got work to do.”

On doing her own laundry: “That keeps me normal. That keeps me feeling like, Yeah, I’m not too Hollywood.” (source)
