Mia Wasikowska Covers 'BlackBook' April 2011

Mia Wasikowska rocks mod inspired makeup on the cover of BlackBook magazine’s April 2011 issue.

Here’s what the 21-year-old Aussie actress had to share with editor Nick Haramis:

On Hollywood glamor: “I’m so lucky to have the best hairdressers and fashion stylists in the world, but when I’m at premieres I can’t wait to get home and put on my baggy pants. The glamor of Hollywood is such a myth. I can’t help worrying that I’ll trip on my heels, or that my makeup is smudging all over my face.”

On ballet: “Dance is about perfection. It’s about the line of your ankle, the ideal weight, minute things that most people don’t notice but that dancers are trained to see and spend hours obsessing over in front of the mirror. Dancers are kept in a perpetual state of pre-puberty, and for young girls in particular, that type of pressure breeds insecurities. You can become so obsessed with the smallest details – it was a good thing for me to get out of.”

On the strength of her character, Jane Eyre: “Jane is such a modern character. If you put her in contemporary society, she’d be running Parliament. There’s something so remarkable about a woman who feels worthy of respect regardless of her social status.”

FYI: Mia is wearing a Michael Kors dress and necklace.
