Good God, Kate Bosworth has two magazine editorials and both of them came out today. You might be thinking to yourself (as CB just asked me this too), “What is The Bos even promoting?” The answer is her wedding. She’s promoting her wedding. I think it’s going down this weekend, probably around the same time Andrea Casiraghi and Tatiana Santo Domingo will marry in Monaco. Personally, I’m more interested in Andrea & Tatiana’s wedding, although I will admit to some curiosity over The Bos’s wedding dress.
Anyway, The Bos covers InStyle UK and this week’s issue of The Edit (net-a-porter’s online mag). I’m including photos from both editorials – The Edit photos are the classy, elegant ones. The InStyle pics are the ones where her ass is hanging out. Some highlights from both interviews:
Michael Polish knew they would marry first thing: ‘I never even dated my husband-to-be. He said to me after just a few weeks, before we were even together, “I’m going to marry you.” He just knew.’
On Michael: “There are so many things that just clicked for us,” Bosworth says, resting her chin on one delicate hand, flashing the 1920s square, emerald-cut diamond that Polish found at vintage jewelry specialist Fred Leighton. “It’s like, what didn’t draw us together? It feels as if we have known each other our whole lives, even though he is 12 years older than me. But it feels like he’s been there every step of the way. And he is a great mentor to me, artistically.”
Wedding plans: ‘I can give you one detail: it’s not the norm and whisky will be involved.’
Becoming a stepmother to Michael’s 15-year-old daughter Jasper. “She’s amazing,” says Bosworth, beaming. “It’s such a special relationship for me. She is so much like I was at that age.”
Her relationship is an addictive habit: ‘When you’re in it, it becomes habitual and it’s difficult to get out of that. You get addicted to the habit. I’m so headstrong and loyal, and that combination will cause me to stay in a relationship far longer than I should.’
She just turned 30: “There’s not been one female I’ve spoken to who has told me their 20s were easy. Everyone talks of how difficult your teens can be, but the rough and tumble of your 20s is a bit of a secret. In one sense it was a whole lot of fun but I felt confused and like I was going through growing pains a lot.”
Her career: “I’ve hit the moment when you can reflect comfortably and feel grounded,” she says. “Blue Crush was a unique experience. It was a lead female role, such a rare opportunity.”
The wedding dress: The dress, reportedly designed by “master in American elegance” Oscar de la Renta, was a long-deliberated decision. “There was no doubt about the designer, [but] there was a feeling of, ‘Do I dance around the bridal thing and wear a dress I could wear for the red carpet?’ But lately I’m all about coming out of my comfort zone and challenging myself, so I decided to embrace the moment. It has been a real discovery of that part of myself. I had never thought about it – the dress, the ring, any of it.”
If you love to roll your eyes and chuckle at how pretentious a C-list, out-of-work actress can be, I would suggest you go and read the full interview at The Edit. It’s comedy gold. I kind of forgot that Michael Polish is a father already and that Kate is going to be a step-mother… that should get interesting. Anyway, I’m sure we’ll have news about Kate and Michael’s wedding on Sunday or Monday. Blah.
