April Magazines Part 3

Amanda Seyfried doesn’t know how to relax. Or, at least that’s the way she made it seem to W magazine. The April cover girl needs to be constantly working. “I am most scared of being bored,” Seyfried told the glossy. “I was at a resort! And I thought, I should be loving this—but I wasn’t getting anything done, and that terrified me. When I feel like I’m not accomplishing something, I feel like I failed the day. I guess I missed work.”

Elle magazine’s April cover girl, Emma Watson, is all about taking time to smell the roses… in her own shoes. “I remember reading this thing that Elizabeth Taylor wrote,” she said in the magazine. “She had her first kiss in character. On a movie set. It really struck me. I don’t know how or why, but I had this sense that if I wasn’t really careful, that could me. That my first kiss could be in somebody else’s clothes. And my experiences could all belong to someone else.”

Lily Collins is one lucky girl. Eva Chen announced on Twitter that she was “so excited to unveil Lucky magazine’s April cover!” The new face of Lancome chats with the glossy about her love of working with the beauty brand, her upcoming film projects and her love of fashion. “Sometimes I get more excited meeting designers than I do other actors,” she said.

Shailene Woodley almost turned down her role in the upcoming Divergent, until Katniss Everdeen, er, Jennifer Lawrence advised her otherwise. “I said no, and everybody was shocked,” Teen Vogue’s April cover girl told the magazine. “I asked Jennifer Lawrence, ‘are you happy with your choice to take on The Hunger Games?’ And she said she wouldn’t change it for the world. She told me, ‘There are some things—don’t make a sex tap, don’t do drugs, don’t do things in public—that you wouldn’t want other people judging you for. But this is the best decision you’ll ever make.’”

… Woodley is pulling double duty as Marie Clarie’s April cover girl, too and told the magazine she recently deleted her Instagram account. “Everything I was posting was for a story—like, ‘Look how interesting I am” It felt disgusting to me,” Woodley said. “It feels as though we’re so detached from actual human connection. And I got rid of my phone, too. We’re all such narcissists, and that’s what social media caters to. Our society conditions us to be our own planets, which is great. Independent thinking is so important. But we expect everyone around us to be our moons.”
