Kate Bosworth looks fashionably fabulous in the latest issue of Australian Harper's Bazaar. The actress has a lot going for her right now: Adorable boyfriend? Check. Recent hit movie? Check. Style icon status? Check. However, Kate doesn't let this all go to her head. She opened up to Harper's about preserving her childhood, James Rosseau, and how she stays so grounded. Here are highlights:
- On her career during high school: "I didn't want to be the 'child actress.' Some strange little part of me knew I had to go through those challenging teenage years and not be interrupted by Hollywood. I shot a few things over summer holidays like [TV series] Young Americans and Remember the Titans, but I wanted to take the time to study."
- On how she stays grounded: "Once you go through the experience of being dragged through the mud, you don't ever give a sh*t ever again. Being a public figure there's always this fear. 'Do they like me?' It's a high school thing. My tips are: 1. Don't read anything [written about you] — it's all full of sh*t. 2. Have good people around you. 3. Laugh."
In addition to everything Kate has going for her, it's nice to know she can still laugh about her experiences and stay down to earth. To see what Kate has to say about her boyfriend James and check out more images from the super cool photoshoot, just
- On helping boyfriend James discover his musical talent: "He has always played and written music — it's the poet in him. I would always hear him strumming and say, 'James, you have to give this a go.' Being in a creative field, I understand how nerve-wracking it is to put yourself out there. My best friend's husband is a music producer and has a studio here. He's Dutch, James is British. I knew they'd smoke a lot of cigarettes, drink red wine, and have a blast recording the album."
