Emma posed for her spread with Carter Smith on the beach wearing THE print of the fall: polka dots.
The actress also spoke with the mag on wearing braces, her career and baking to calm her nerves.
Here are some HIGHlights:
On having braces and wearing glasses while growing up:
"And I sucked my thumb until I was 11, so I had this expander in. I was a good-looking kid. I never felt, like, dorky. I was just like, ‘Yup, these are my braces. I’ve had them forever.’"
On her career:
"It’s so funny how different life could have been. I went to so many auditions. I remember my audition for Heroes. I went in right after Hayden Panettiere. Now here we are in this rented house. It feels like it just happened."
On wanting to be believable in her roles:
"I like to look like a person. It drives me crazy when you see women in movies playing teachers, and they have biceps. It totally takes me out of the movie. I start thinking, Wow, that actress playing this part really looks great!"
On taking up baking in part to control her nervous energy:
"It’s very controlled. You know, if you put in the same amount of whatever is in the recipe, it will come out all right."
Not a bad idea!
