Oooh la la, what an enticing beauty Bella Heathcote is!
Vogue is really going to kill the September issue game, especially with their Australian cover featuring the fierce Dark Shadows actress.
She makes fronting the mag look easy-as-pie in her red Christian Dior gown and veil, but Bella is no amateur when it comes to looking phenomenal.
Inside the mag, the star expressed everything from moving to El Lay, her upcoming film, Not Fade Away, and working with Baz Luhrmann.
On moving to El Lay:
“I was lucky. I had the Heath Ledger scholarship so I had a bit of support. But there is the work here and I wanted to make a career out of this. I was working at a law firm, doing a few episodes of Neighbours here and there, and I’d done two features in Australia in the course of two or three years. I thought if I want to make this my career and I don’t want to keep working part-time jobs for the rest of my life, I’ll have to take this leap.”
On her upcoming flick, Not Fade Away:
“Something about it reminds me of The Sopranos, in the sense that [director] David Chase does that thing where he can cut from something that is so awful to something so hilarious. It’s quite shocking but in a great way. There are moments where you are watching it and you’re not sure if you should be laughing – I kind of love that.”
On her working relationship with Baz Luhrmann:
“Baz brings that low-budget enthusiasm to a big-budget set. Yeah, it takes time to set up the lights, the environment and the atmosphere, but the moment the actors start working he creates an excitement and urgency akin to that low-budget thrill. You won’t find a more passionate guy: he lives and breathes the aesthetic of the movie he’s making.”
Miz Heathcote's Australian Vogue cover will hit newsstands on August 1, and after getting a glimpse of the interview, we can't wait to get our hands on the magazine.
For now, check out the cover (above), but don't ooh and awe too much, unless U really can't help it!
