Kate Bosworth looks gorgeous in her black and white photo feature for Net-a-Porter’s The Edit magazine.
Here’s what the 32-year-old actress had to share with the mag:
On falling in love with Michael Polish: “I found love with him as a director first [on the set of Big Sur in 2011]. It started to twist from, ‘I want to work with him all the time’ to ‘I want to be with him all the time’. And I remember thinking that wasn’t normal, and that maybe this wasn’t just an artistic connection.”
On advice to young actresses: “If I could impart advice, it would be to find mentors – as many as possible. I started too young and I had to white-knuckle it a little bit. I kept things too bottled up. I just put my head down and fought through it, and I wish I had sought more guidance.”
On seeking advice from her friend, Helena Christensen: “I hadn’t seen Helena in a while, and I just said to her, ‘God I am struggling… I’m feeling quite lost.’ To which she replied, ‘You should have called me! I have been through that so many times.’ And that was when the penny finally dropped. I thought, ‘OK, I need to share my life, particularly with more women, and feel comfortable about being vulnerable.’”
