Nikki Reed Covers 'Zooey' Magazine

Nikki Reed Covers 'Zooey' Magazine

Nikki Reed graces the cover of the November/December 2012 issue of Zooey magazine.

Here’s what the 24 year old actress had to share with the mag:

On writing the movie Thirteen:Thirteen was really hard on my family. I wrote this movie about them and their flaws and imperfections and what it was like growing up. It was from one kid’s perspective and not a well rounded one. You get older and it’s like, how dare I portray my father as being a totally vacant careless schmuck?”

On falling in love with her hubby Paul McDonald: “Actually my Dad was my date to the premiere where I met Paul. I got stuck in L.A. because my flight to Vancouver was cancelled, so Catherine Hardwicke invited me to the premiere of Red Riding Hood. It was 4pm, I had to find a dress, I was tired, hadn’t washed my hair and had to be there at 6. I wanted to support her so I went with unwashed hair. [laughs] All the guys ended up being there from American Idol and my Dad said, ‘Go say hi to that guy.’ I walked over to Paul and knew I was in love within one second of saying hi. It was the craziest thing that has ever happened to me in my life.”

On reuniting with her estranged dad: “We weren’t close growing up and I guess it was both of our faults. He was waiting for me to come around and I was bitter about him divorcing Mom. I was shooting a movie in Sacramento and I called my Dad and said, ‘We need to have a real talk.’ We went to Islands and I told him all these things that he had no idea I wanted. I said, ‘I want you to call me everyday and maybe five times a day and even if I say I’m fine I want you to say you don’t sound fine. I need you to dig deeper and tell me you love me every time you hang up the phone.’”

FYI: Nikki is wearing a green Darling sweater in the spread.

    That kind of broke my heart reading about her father. I’m not one for personal lives of celebrities, but I give her credit for being honest about it and even blaming herself. Maybe Taylor Swift will learn how to do that one day.

  • Lou

    An interesting interview from a twilight cast member for once lol

  • georgia

    ahhhh i <3 her, i really hope her career continues now that twilight is over!

  • Reese

    I love how genuine and honest her answers are. I liked her since the movie Thirteen.

  • Nano

    I had no idea she co-wrote Thirteen! I respect her even more for that!

  • Yohji

    Definitely one of the better Twilight actors. Should do another film like Thirteen again if she has the opportunity.

  • pris

    what, she doesn’t want an oscar? jk, she’s beautiful, talented and knows what her value is, so kudos for that!

  • Le

    I wouldn´t have the guts that she had to tell my father how I really feel about him.I just wouldn´t.

  • Twinkletoes

    Is that a real beauty mark or did she pencil it in?

  • notafan

    I think she’s got a very attractive smile and a good personality. I heard twihards and Robsten/Kristen fas hate her. Well, its obvious then, she must be a good person. I like her

  • Tony

    Except that she has exaggerated everything in her life, especially the part about writing “thirteen.” Everyone who worked at Fox Searchlight on publicity or on the movie knows that Catherine Hardwicke wrote the script based on things Reed told her about her friends. Hardwicke gave her script credit because she was dating Reed’s father. Fox used it as a publicity gimmick to give the movie credibility and the fact that she continues to lie about it and use it for publicity amazes me. Her father and Hardwicke are the reason she got most of her acting jobs. She should give credit where credit is due.

  • KissThis

    don’t know why, but I just do not like this chick.

  • Tracy

    Nikki looks really pretty here. I like Nikki I think she is a very honest person and that has endured a lot of crazy crap.

  • jen


    You’re so embarrassing. Do you know her personally or her family to be able to say that? Get a life. Just because she was able to co-write a critically acclaimed script at 13 while you were still too busy playing or collecting farts in a jar doesn’t mean you can spread false information about her.

  • oli


    They do hate on her but mostly Robsten and Kristen fans. They think she’ll still Rob from Kristen. Which ironic really, why worry about her when it”s Kristen who’s the known cheater/homewrecker/whore.
