Boardwalk Empire's Kelly Macdonald Can't Believe Margaret Schroeder Is Still Alive

Kelly Macdonald doesn't give away too much about herself. She's not the kind of actress you're likely to find being followed by TMZ cameras or caught drunk in front of some trendy nightclub. Much like the characters she plays—including Boardwalk Empire's Margaret Thompson (née Schroeder)—there's an enigmatic air about the 38-year-old Glasgow native, which is part of what makes her so compelling to watch. And why she has managed to fly just slightly under the radar (in a good way) since making her big-screen debut at the age of 20 as Ewan McGregor's naughty schoolgirl cohort in Danny Boyle's Trainspotting. see more

Balmain's Olivier Rousteing on Why Designing Clothes is All About Sex

Olivier, what role does sex play in your creative process as a fashion designer? I think sex is really important because there is a lot to play with when you have sex on your mind. It's something that has no limit and no boundaries. And what is cool about sex is that it's all about some kind of fantasy. When I create clothes for a girl, in my mind I always think about what I would want if I were the girl or if I would love to have sex with her. So it's really something where I play see more

How Honor Titus Went From Shooting Hoops with Julian Casablancas to Opening for The Strokes

Honor Titus was a little late for our interview. The 24-year-old lead singer of Cerebral Ballzy—one of just eight bands represented by the indie label, Cult Records, founded by The Strokes' Julian Casablancas—was busy arguing with a stranger outside the bar where we met him. Titus' aggression takes many forms, and while he may best known for his expletive-laden punk lyrics, he actually has a lot to say about modern urban life. In advance of the June 17th release of Cerebral Ballzy's new album Jaded & Faded, we spoke to him about growing up in New York City, his see more

Cold in July's Michael C. Hall Returns with a Mean Mullet, More Macabre, But No More Henley Shirts

Ask Michael C. Hall about the recurring theme of morbidity in the roles he plays, and the 43-year-old actor will quickly agree with you, but he'd also point out that it's in those darkest places that he—and, by extension, we—discover what it is to be a human. So it should come as no surprise that in his first big-screen appearance since wrapping an eight-season run as the lovable serial killer Dexter Morgan, Hall's character murders someone. But the truth is much more complicated. see more

Actor Viggo Mortensen on the Influence of Beat Culture, the Globalization of Personal Style, and When to Say No to a Movie

Mr. Mortensen, have you ever been called a liar? Everybody is at some point, right? Humans are inconsistent and that's what makes them interesting. If they were completely predictable, it wouldn't be so interesting. And movies that show people as being unpredictable are more interesting than movies that show someone behave the same way all the time. It doesn't have to be the main aspect of the story, but I like characters where you see that. see more

Bottega Veneta Creative Director Tomas Maier Is Sick of Brand Logos and "Stupid" Fashion Rules

Mr. Maier, how much attention do you pay to the rest of the fashion industry? I don't look. I find it distracting. I'm more interested in our customer, who he is and what he's looking for. In my twenties, I looked at everything I could. I went to every fashion show, I sneaked in anywhere I could. I wanted to absorb the most I could and see a lot. I think that's important when you're a student or when you're starting out—you need to see things. But then I think there comes a time when that's just distracting, always see more

Actor Zachary Quinto on the Two Life-Changing Weeks He Spent in Peru Doing Ayahuasca

Star Trek fans know him simply as Spock, but do a quick online search for the 37-year-old actor and you'll discover that, at the moment at least, the Internet knows him better for his shirtless selfies on Instagram. But as we found out within minutes of meeting him, there's a whole lot more to Zachary Quinto than landing major Hollywood roles and hitting the gym. see more

Q&A With Walk of Shame's Elizabeth Banks: "I Think We Left Some Raunch on the Table"

Good luck trying to categorize Elizabeth Banks. The versatile 40-year-old actress—and soon-to-be director of Pitch Perfect 2—has handily tackled dramas (Seabiscuit, The Hunger Games), comedies (The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Zack and Miri Make a Porno), and dramedies (W., People Like Us) alike. "I have no brand," Banks says wryly. "It's a bummer—I'll have to work on that." If Banks had to define herself, she'd go with comedian, which explains why she's so jazzed about the quippy, slapstick-y Walk of Shame (in theaters now). Banks plays Meghan Miles, an ambitious Los Angeles reporter whose one-night stand with a chiseled hottie (James see more

When she's not landing roles in films like the upcoming adaption of Fifty Shades of Grey, she's whipping street-style photographers into a tizzy and appearing on albums by a range of artists, from Snoop Dogg to Iggy Azalea, whose latest release (The New Classic) features Ora on a track written by Katy Perry. Rita, your parents moved from Kosovo to London in order to give you and your siblings a better life. What see more

Q&A: Charlotte Gainsbourg Is Fine with Using a Porn Actor Double for Her Nymphomaniac Sex Scenes as Long as the Audience Knows It's All Pretend

Is there a more fearless working actor than Charlotte Gainsbourg? The Anglo-French beauty, who speaks like an angel, has plumbed some terrifyingly shocking depths—exhibiting psychosexual-violence in Antichrist (for which she won best actress at Cannes Film Festival), facing apocalypse in the epic Melancholia, and, most recently, exploring carnal extremes in Nymphomaniac, her cinematic reunion with Danish writer-director Lars von Trier. see more
