Bosworth is the Boss

Bosworth is the Boss

A lot of you disapproved of Kate Bosworth‘s rail thin figure on the April 2007 cover of V Magazine as photographed by Mario Sorrenti in NYC, December 2006. But scope out the inside pictures of Kate is V Magazine — they’re simply stunning! This particular one is quite the eyegasm. Here’s a snippet from Kate‘s article:

Chances are, as you read this, Kate Bosworth is ordering takeout and roaming around her three-quarter acre Los Angeles property somewhere in the Canyon. Although it’s smack dab in the middle of Hollywood, she likes to think it’s more, as she puts it, “in the middle of Colorado.” (With the majority of Hollywood’s younger set stirring gossip fodder somewhere between their vehicles and the door of a nightclub, who can blame her for laying low?) When talking to the 24-year-old Massachusetts native, it becomes clear that it’s more than just her real estate that’s “in the middle” lately. Lanvin-loving fashion fan or Converse-kicking street kid? Box-office blockbuster actress or art-film ingĂ©nue? Scandal-loving Hollywood starlet or low-key homebody? As she herself admits, right now she’s not one of those stars committing to one set of adjectives.

It turns out, however, that Kate‘s ability to work the whole spectrum has had its upside. Take her film career: her first role was as Scarlett Johansson‘s best friend in 1998′s The Horse Whisperer, followed up by smaller films, including 2002′s Blue Crush, the star-making vehicle about a Hawaiian surfing threesome led by the blonde, bikinied Bosworth. Last year she ventured to blockbuster territory, taking the role of Lois Lane in the $200 million Superman remake. But, just as it looked like she was ready to sell her indie cred for marquee status, she wrapped another small film this year (“it was more a labor of love,” she says) with Sigourney Weaver, The Girl in the Park, by the writer of the Broadway play Proof.

Not that the strong-willed Bosworth hasn’t had her share of headlines: remember those “news” items about her extremely slender figure and dating Hollywood heartthrob Orlando Bloom on and off for four years? Not shockingly, she now says she isn’t a fan of Hollywood hangouts and prefers the local pub to the red carpet. The ability to fit in anywhere—or, as we like to see it, work the middle so well—is a skill Bosworth presumably learned in school: she’s said in the past that she always felt like the “new girl” as her father had to move his family around the country for his job, and that she has “this pain in [her] heart from what it was like to walk in with your lunch tray and not have anywhere to sit.” Well, the good news now is that Bosworth can sit at all the tables. And there’s something powerful about being the new girl—you can be whoever you want to be.

    aww being skinny won’t get you in vogue but v is a close 3rd or forth
    poor thing buy a hamburger and your career back

  • [Fug Face Maniston]

    Kate Bosworth completely ruined Superman Returns and for that I will never like her. Honestly I really didn’t like her before that.

    Being ugly annnnd skinny is a bad combination.

  • kidi

    She looks like an undernourished boy. There’s nothing womanly about her. These stick figures send a terrible message to our daughters–that curves–the things that make us women–are to be starved away so you look asexual. It’s sick.

  • Jo

    She actually doesn’t look terribley skinny at all, slim not but boney in anyway. I t hink people are just projecting what the media is telling them to think on her at this point. She went through a rough patch yes but get over it now please.

    I do think the cover was a bad shot, but rest of the shoot is pretty cool

  • Jo

    Seriously, she is far from ugly I think you people have lost your mind and are just following the crowd like stupid sheep, open your eyes the girl maybe no contender for the most beautiful women the world but she’s still quite beautiful

  • sunshineday

    in the picture where she’s in black underwear she actually doesn’t look all that horribly skinny. i’m about that skinny (but not quite as skinny as Kate) naturally. women don’t have to be voluptuously curvy to “make us women.” um, miss kidi, there’s more to a woman than voluptuous curves. stick skinny or crazy-curvy, women are women and they’re beautiful.

    as for kate: if she keeps on losing weight, she’s definitely going to lose her attractiveness & her acting is so-so…i’m not a big fan.

  • PJ

    Stunning? Beautiful? Are we looking at the same pictures? Yuck.

  • http://??? skylar

    It’s amazing what they can do with a corpse these days.

  • Mikki

    She looks terrible!

  • AndrĂ©

    I think she’s rly pretty.
    The make up and hair are weird that’s why you guys are sayong she’s horrible and stuff.
    but she’s not..and I like the fact that she’s skinny..I think it’s beautiful and cool..not like everybody else with their fat asses.

    And go to and you can see she already was on a Vogue editorial with Jamie Dornan.

  • xenu

    It just keeps getting worse, doesn’t it?

  • Elle

    She looks beautiful

  • Poppy

    I’d say her make-up was done by an enbalmer. Then the pics were photoshopped to add some flesh. Not a fan of the Hollywood hangouts, my @$$ – she wanted (and still does) the fame so much, it was the worst-kept secret in Hollywood that she would call the paps to alert them where she and Orlando were going to be.

  • chilifrog

    I luv that her eyes are 2 diff colors. she is small framed, but needs some softness. she is all jutting angles and points. ouch. and the photos? the psychadelic close up – cool; the rest – could be any bony model. and her acting, in my opinon – yawn. she has to prove to me why I must look at her.

  • gia

    hot pic in the blk undies

  • Aimee

    these pictures have a glossy magazine artificial beauty.

    but in real life? i think she’d be pretty frightening. in the media you need to do something like this to catch ppl’s eye i suppose.

    yes, she is definitely NOT LOIS! erica durance has the right spunky attitude. LOIS kate bosworth is NOT.

  • zae

    I agree with you aimee
    kate definitely spoiled lois lane’s image. She is not the rite lois lane.especially with the bony figure not to mention horrible acting… I definitely prefer erica, teri margot. I think Jessica Biel can replace Kate in the next installation of Superman, she seems spunky enough. :)

  • Honeychild

    She looks horrible, like some messed-up street waif. When is this dangerous obsession with size zero end? Do we do something about it when someone of Kate Bosworth’s fame or status dies? It will be too late then, because a lot of young and impressionable girls and women could be adversely influenced into thinking they are not thin enough, therefore too fat. Indeed, as Aimee #16 commented that the pictures do have an artificial and ‘glossy’ style to them, but is she attractive? I’m sorry, I don’t think so. Also, incidentally, I read a lot of disparaging reviews of Kate’s performance in the Superman movie last year, plus there was a lot of specualtion about her break-up with [I believe] Orlando Bloom. Feel free to correct me if I am wrong, but maybe these things have influenced her image in this stressful way. I know she’s a wealthy young celebrity, but I feel a little sorry for her. In short, not a good look.

  • Honey

    I dont think she is the most beautiful woman in the world, she is ok, to averge for Orlando bloom, he needs a real woman, not some dumb c rate actress. She only has one, good pose she does all the time, and she seems very boring to, it’s like what does she do all day, hang out with her wanna be model boyfrien, is James his name, anyway, She is not the best and Orlando will find someone better.
