Been a bit quiet on the Mischa front lately so hopefully some more exciting stuff starts to happen soon. I mentioned a couple of rumoured movie roles a little while back and now both Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain and Upstate are listed on Mischa’s IMDB page. There hasn’t been any new info on Bhopal in a while, but the latest news on Upstate is the rumour that Gossip Girl’s Chace Crawford has joined the cast. I guess only time will tell for both roles.
And speaking of roles, some candids from July 31st have been uploaded of Mischa at a business meeting at the Sofitel hotel. She’s holding an unknown script in her hands! Also uploaded are additional shots from Mischa’s photocall for Closing the Ring in Japan. Thanks to Marie.
As mentioned previously, Mischa graces the pages of InStyle Magazine in the UK for a multi-page fashion spread. The issue featuring Diane Kruger on the front cover (pictured left) hits newsstands today! With thanks to the InStyle team, we have a two photo preview of the shoot and an extract from the corresponding article which is featured below. You can also check out a behind the scenes video by heading on over to the InStlye website.
Before taking a well earned break from her recent roles on the big screen, Mischa is spending a day with In Style modelling the new season’s catwalk trends, from futuristic tailoring to feathers. She tells us that her own wardrobe collection is just as eclectic: “I live in vintage shift dresses or jeans, but there’s also a bit of everything, from designer to H&M, and, like, 50 pairs of shoes – that’s not so bad, right?”
Bags, though, are her weakness: in fact she’s just designed her own mid-priced range. “It was so fun and creative – you sketch them and they send back a computer image,” she says. “And I loved the idea behind Kate Moss for Topshop – that your fans can afford to buy your designs.”
So are there any plans for her own fashion line? “That would be cool,” she nods, before adding endearingly, “but you have to really know what you are doing.”
Some new candids of Mischa & Taylor at the beach and a set of scans of Mischa on the cover of Go Girl Magazine (from Indonesia) back in December 2006 have been added. Big thanks to Amira for the scans!
With Mischa’s stunning cover for UK Marie Claire hitting the stands today, an extract from the interview and some stunning photos of the spread (by Wayne Maser for Marie Claire) have been uploaded. We’ve also uploaded a HQ version of the cover with thanks to the Marie Claire team.
And don’t forget that a behind the scenes video of the photoshoot is available to view also via their website.
On meeting her fans:
“Sometimes I am a bit surprised when people come up to me and they’re like, “You’re so nice! I didn’t expect you to be so cool.” It’s so weird because I’m like, “Well, how did you expect me to be?” I’m not really sure what people’s preconceived notions are.”
On her DUI charge:
“It was a low point in my life. I mean, the truth of the matter is, I was being irresponsible to begin with – I moved to LA and never got a licence,” she explains. “I don’t know, it was just an awful low for me.”
On the press coverage it received:
“Even though, in a lot of ways, my upbringing has been quite liberal, something like that is embarrassing and appalling for my parents. It was a surreal experience and I was shocked at how much press it made but, the thing is, I apologised – and you have to just hope that that’s enough, because what else can you do? I’m just living life, and people make mistakes, you know?”
When will she return to television?:
“when I understand it better. Because I didn’t understand it. When you’re 16, you don’t know what the hell you’re getting into. Like, I had no clue. LA was a shock to the system.”
On her love life:
“I’m lucky to know you can have more than one soulmate in life,” she says. “But, like a true actress, I’m always changing the way I feel about who I want to be. Nowadays, I feel I’m settling more into a woman and I’m understanding who I am.”
