Here’s what the 32-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On her early years: “When I became a model, it gave me some self-esteem and a place to belong. Up until then, my home life was a little rocky and the kids at school would totally pick on me, and then when I became a model, it almost got worse.”

On the music she is working on: “Cutesy and dark and girly… I’m happiest when I’m playing guitar and writing and expressing myself in that creative way—it’s a great detox from the grind of Hollywood for me.”

On her boyfriend, indie rock star, War On Drugs’ Adam Granduciel: “I’ve always dated musicians, even in high school. He’s my favorite artist. He’s incredibly supportive and encouraging. We played guitar together for a bit yesterday before he left on tour. He taught me a scale that I’m going to practice a bunch and try to blow his mind when he gets back.”

Krysten Ritter & New Boyfriend Adam Granduciel Hit the Gym

Krysten Ritter and her new boyfriend Adam Granduciel hold hands while heading to the gym together on Tuesday afternoon (September 30) in West Hollywood, Calif.

The 32-year-old actress is a guest star on the second season of NBC’s hit show The Blacklist and she recently chatted with Yahoo about working with the cast.

“I had a great time on the set. It was very different for me. I have done a lot of comedy, different kinds of shows. This is very seedy crime scenes and dark interrogation rooms and obviously sets the tone,” Krysten said. “For me it was all educational. I always buddy up with the girl. Megan [Boone] and I are now friends. And it was their first episode back and everyone was excited and getting ready for the grind once again. They shoot really long hours and a drama is no joke. It is about endurance and being able to maintain your health and maintain your lifestyle.”

Amy Adams Solidifies Oscar Chances with 'Big Eyes' Trailer!

Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz get confronted about a painting in the trailer for their highly anticipated new movie Big Eyes.

The film is a drama centered on the awakening of the painter Margaret Keane (Adams), her phenomenal success in the 1950s, and the subsequent legal difficulties she had with her husband (Waltz), who claimed credit for her works in the 1960s.

Also starring in the Tim Burton-directed flick are Krysten Ritter and Jason Schwartzman. It will hit theaters on Christmas Day, December 25.

Amy is a frontrunner for an Oscar nomination this year even though we haven’t seen her full performance yet. She has been nominated five times so far, so we would love to see her win one soon!
