Nina Dobrev Says 'Comedy Is Terrifying' in Nylon's August 2014 Issue

Nina Dobrev rocks her favorite denim on the August 2014 cover of Nylon mag.

Here’s what the 25-year-old Vampire Diaries actress had to say:

On fame: “People feel like they know you when you’re in their living room, weekly, for five years. But I always get uncomfortable when people know more about me than I know about them.”

On fashion: “I was not a girly-girl growing up…I liked fashion, but I wasn’t very fashion savvy. I didn’t always have all the best outfits…For a while there, we actually shopped at The Salvation Army.”

On her red carpet persona: “It doesn’t feel real because I don’t live in that world. When I go to those events, I’m in town specifically for that, and then I leave later that night. I’ve maybe stayed for the after-party once, ever. It still feels like I’m a fan, in a way. A lot of people are very cynical and very jaded, but I’m not there yet.”

On acting in a comedy: “It’s terrifying. I can get to an emotional place and start crying, but there’s pressure when you think you have to be funny…You really have to be uninhibited and fearless.”
