Tilda Swinton: Centipede Covered for 'W' Magazine May 2013

Tilda Swinton is covered in real centipedes in this brand new feature from W magazine’s May 2013 issue.

Here’s what the 52-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On having real centipedes on her face for the shoot: “Though they may look as if they were mechanically placed, we waited hours for these centipedes to crawl into their meaningful positions, decking me out with eyebrows and mustaches. ‘Ceci n’est pas une moustache,’ as Magritte might have put it.”

On beauty: “Being beautiful was never really something I associated with people I knew – certainly not girls. Boys maybe. Horses, yes, and certainly my great-grandmother Elsie Swinton, whose imperial grandeur was like a watermark.”
