How happy was I to find this? Ian Somerhalder is on the February 2012 cover of Status magazine. Not only does he look hot in on the cover but the interview inside is really cute too. I know that I have missed talking about Ian. With this season’s Vampire Diaries one of the best yet, I wish I had time to talk about him constantly. Here are the highlights from the interview:
On his imaginary friend Ian: “I remember, I was so young, I had an imaginary friend named Ian whom my poor family had to deal with probably [for] a year. Ian liked everything I liked so I asked my mom for this whole pack of gum and then she found me an hour later with my mouth full of it. And my mom said, ‘Wait a minute, Ian. I thought some was for Ian, too.’ And I said, ‘Nope, nope. Ian doesn’t like this kind.’ [laughs] So I used to do things like that. It just kinda made my mom realize that I was meant to be an actor.”
On wanting to study art history: “I love art. I wanted to go to NYU, but I ended up booking a television show and moving out to LA. You can learn art history obviously just by being a surveyor of art. I mean, I go to art galleries all around the world. I read a lot about art. I wish I just had been able to take a crash course in it. I eventually wanna learn how to paint. Also, music is a huge thing [for me]. Not so that I could play music that well, but a lot of my friends (My Morning Jacket, Bright Eyes) are exceptionally talented and wildly successful musicians.”
Rachel McAdams covers the February 2012 issue of Glamour magazine. Or you can see her in theaters in Sherlock Holmes: Game Of Shadows. She was good in that movie too. I won’t give away what happens to her though. Here are the highlights of the interview:
On whether she gets involved in creating her characters’ looks: “Yeah, I love those preliminary conversations about who a character is. You try on wigs, shoes and clothes. It’s preferable when it’s not about looking pretty. It can get a little dull to just be cute. We talk about things like, maybe my character can’t afford these Christian Louboutins. [The stylist] will say, ‘No one will notice.” And I’m like, “Everyone knows that red-bottom shoe!’”
On whether playing serious or playing silly is more difficult: “I think playing silly. I’m very silly as a person, but quality silliness on-screen has more of an art to it. Harrison Ford, whom I was in Morning Glory with, has mastered that dry funny better than anyone.”
On whether she worked at McDonald’s: “Yeah, for a good three years. My sister and brother worked there. My sister was my manager! It was a great place to work, but I had a little bit of an OCD thing with hand washing and just didn’t have time. They were like, “Hey, the drive-through’s backing up. Stop washing your hands!” I was not a great employee; I broke the orange juice machine one day.”
On her all-time favorite romantic movie: “Just one?! In the Mood for Love, Giant, Days of Heaven and the Russian film Burnt by the Sun. I can’t choose just one.”
On crushes she’s had on actors: “I loved soap operas when I was young, so Antonio Sabato Jr. and Maurice Benard from General Hospital. And who could forget Josh Brolin in The Goonies?”
On what she’d do if she wasn’t acting? “I wouldn’t mind running a restaurant. I’m not an amazing cook, but I can follow a recipe.”
OneRepublic recently took time out of their busy year for an exclusive interview with Cambio to discuss their preshow rituals, craziest performances and their upcoming album. In the interview, front man Ryan Tedder mentions how the band is currently writing and recording for the next album and that it’s a very different process from their previous work. The band also talked about their brand new Christmas song, “Christmas Without You,” calling it “1965 in your mouth.”
Be sure to catch them performing on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve. Saturday, December 31st at 10:00pm EST/PST live on ABC.

Isn’t it nice to see Johnny Depp on the cover of the November 2011 issue of Vanity Fair? He is going to be in theaters soon with his movie, The Rum Diary. It looks like true to Johnny fashion that it will be great. Here are the highlights of the interview from the magazine:
On working as much as he can right now: ‘Basically, if they’re going to pay me the stupid money right now, I’m going to take it. I have to. I mean, it’s not for me. Do you know what I mean? At this point, it’s for my kids. It’s ridiculous, yeah, yeah. But ultimately is it for me? No. No. It’s for the kids.’
On making money during his early days in Hollywood by attending Scientology study groups for $3: ‘I went to a bunch, man. It was so great, it was so fantastic.’
On the lack of support for 2004′s The Libertine from Harvey Weinstein: ‘Harvey killed a great film.’
On photo shoots: ‘You just feel like you’re being raped somehow. Raped. The whole thing. It feels like a kind of weird… just weird, man. Whenever you have a photo shoot or something like that, it’s like… you just feel dumb. It’s just so stupid.’
I think that the whole photo shoot part of the business has to be weird. I know it’s something I would never get used to.
Kate Winslet looks beautiful on the November 2011 issue of the UK version of Harper’s Bazaar magazine. Here’s the highlights from the magazine that hits newsstands on Thursday.
On her marriage break up with director Sam Mendes: “One thing I will say about me and Sam is that it’s fine, it’s really fine. I’m not going to s—fling, there’s no point in even going there. It is what it is… We’re grown-ups at the end of the day, and however hard it’s been for me, it’s been equally hard for him. And we have a child together who we both love – and raising him together, jointly and without any conflict, is absolutely key. It’s the only way to do it, and I’ve really learnt that with Mia.”
On modern families: “Those days of every child having a mummy and daddy who lived at home – Daddy went to work, and Mummy stayed at home and took care of everyone – those days have almost gone, and it’s so much more unconventional now”
On the future: “I feel that I’m just at the beginning of a new narrative, and it’s incredibly exciting. It’s complicated, I know, and uncertain – but it’s where life happens, between the cracks. It can be a painful process, but I truly hope that never stops for me.”
