Belle's Gugu Mbatha-Raw Shares Some Inspirational Advice in 'Town & Country'

Gugu Mbatha Raw looks as stunning as always on the cover of Town & Country magazine’s March 2015 issue.

Here’s what the 31-year-old Beyond the Lights star had to share with the mag:

On her style: “In my daily life it’s about being comfortable. I wear a lot of black. But now, to promote these films, I’ve been working with a stylist. I’ve had some fun Cinderella moments in red carpet land. I love the Audrey Hepburns of this world, and I think Cate Blanchett is stunning and always nails it.”

On knowing yourself: “It’s important to know that it’s okay to be your natural self. It’s also okay to dress up and wear makeup and hair extensions if you want, so long as you don’t feel like you need that or will be worthless without it. The point is, it should be a choice.”

On the roles she’s played: “Growing up and going to RADA [Royal Academy of Dramatic Art] , so many of my peers go on to do period dramas, which is what we’re known for in the U.K. And I had all this classical training but, in some ways, nowhere to put it. It was fascinating to be able to do a movie like Belle—something period, with that Jane Austen feel, in which I wouldn’t be playing a slave or someone in a brutalized role.”

Rosamund Pike Sliced a Dead Pig for 'Gone Girl' Research

Rosamund Pike shows some major leg action at the Louis Vuitton Series 2: Past, Present and Future Exhibit Opening Night on Thursday night (February 5) in Hollywood.

The 36-year-old actress was joined by Michelle Williams, Jennifer Connelly, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw.

That same night, Rosamund stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

“I always get worried about anything physical, like the action sequences. Neil Patrick Harris and I had to do a violent scene,” Rosamund recently told Collider about filming Gone Girl. “If you’re going to do something like that, you have to do it with a certain degree of accuracy. I had no idea how much force you needed to slice someone’s throat. I actually went to a butcher and asked them if they wouldn’t mind me just using a box cutter on a pig carcass, just to understand what it would be like. They let me do it, so anyone buying meat that day would have seen me behind the counter, with serious intent, finding out the mechanics of doing that. That was purely for research purposes.”

FYI: The ladies are wearing Louis Vuitton. Rosamund is wearing Brian Atwood sandals.

Channing Tatum Carries Mila Kunis Away in New 'Jupiter Ascending' Trailer (Exclusive)

Mila Kunis travels into space with Channing Tatum in this brand new extended trailer for their movie Jupiter Ascending, debuting exclusively on JustJared.com.

The film will be hitting theaters on February 6, but it premiered last night in a secret screening held during the Sundance Film Festival.

Here is the movie’s official synopsis: Jupiter Jones (Kunis) was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning toilets and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along – her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.

Also starring in the movie are Oscar nominee Eddie Redmayne, James D’Arcy, Sean Bean, Douglas Booth, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw.
