Tilda Swinton Covers 'W' August 2011

Tilda Swinton Covers 'W' August 2011

Tilda Swinton rocks a tuxedo jacket and silk blouse by Salvatore Ferragamo on the cover of W‘s August issue.

Here’s what the 50-year-old British actress had to share with the mag:

On her latest film, We Need to Talk About Kevin, in which she plays the mother of a violent, disturbed boy: “When we were trying to finance this movie, we would reference Rosemary’s Baby. It’s every pregnant woman’s nightmare to give birth to the devil. And every mother worries that she won’t connect to her children. When I had my children [13-year-old twins Xavier and Honor], my manager asked me what project I wanted to work on next. I said, “Something Greek, perhaps Medea.” Nobody quite understood what I meant, what I was feeling.”

On getting offered more bad guy roles since winning an Oscar for Michael Clayton: “Not really, although villains are a diffusion line in my repertoire [Laughs]. The only movie of mine that my children have seen is The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, where I played the evil White Witch. My daughter said it was too loud. They’re just not Disney kids: They live in Scotland and don’t have a television. When I brought my Oscar home and showed the children, nobody knew what it was. The thing sat on the kitchen table for two weeks. It was kind of meaningless to them.”

FYI: Tilda finished off her cover look with Acne pants, a Patricia Underwood for Chris Benz hat, and Sermoneta gloves. She also wore VPL’s latex coat for the shoot.
