Kate Bosworth on her 15 year old step-daughter: ‘She is so much like I was at that age’

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.

    I love the black dress with the polka dot shoes – that’s all I got.

  2. brin says:

    I just hope she makes it through the ceremony without fainting.

  3. Jen says:

    He said to me after just a few weeks, before we were even together, “I’m going to marry you.” He just knew.’

    That’s creepy, especially since she was still with Alexander when they filmed that movie.

  4. QQ says:

    This Mocktress Needs to stop, and get a real job, also is she the subject of Enty’s BI about teaching the stepdaughter how to smoke for weight control? cause now i feel like she Is, as i didnt know her Creepytown bf has a daughter than old

    “There are so many things that just clicked for us,” Bosworth says,

    For instance, we both have the paps on speed dial!

    That poor kid, Bosworth will be giving intense study in how to be a famehwore.

    • Annabelle says:

      Kate and Michael have been pimping out his daughter’s new single on their Twitter feeds pretty hard recently. And if I’m not mistaken, Michael posted a pic of Kate photographing Jasper for the single cover. On one hand, it could be seen as being supportive, but just knowing her history in the biz, it seems like a disaster in the making.

  6. AllyUK says:

    Wow…I think she might take the crown for Queen of the eye-rolls.

  7. Tiffany27 says:

    LORD her lack of a** looks painful.

  8. Sarah says:

    That shot in the pink dress! Ahhh! She looks frighteningly thin

    “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.”

    Hmmm what about the stalking and clinging?

  10. TG says:

    I know everyone hates her, but I like her or at least I think she is gorgeous and I can’t wait to see her wedding dress. I love Oscar de la Renta dresses. Just wish I could afford one. I just wish she would go back to that hot body she had in Blue Crush.

  11. Jade says:

    She says won’t talk about past boyfriends, damn, I was hoping she would one day spill the details of her train wreck of a relationship with Askars.

  12. Anna says:

    I still cant get over how good The Edit’s editorials are. If I ever become a celebrity, they are styling and producing my first photo-shoot! :)

  13. Turningvioletviolet says:

    Weird, Jasper is a boy’s name yes?

  14. Londongal says:

    Basically a professional ana at this point? I feel so sad looking at her, she looks terribly unwell and he doesn’t look any healthier. Askars is way better out of this very chic, emaciated, ‘too cool to be healthy’, smoking hot mess of a wedding.

  15. UsedToBeLulu says:

    Lovely photo shoot. Love the black dress! I feel as though she disappears when she turns sideways. Best wishes to them.

  16. Lflips says:

    Gain some weight and then maybe you’ll recapture my interest.

  17. Bodhi says:

    This is going to be the biggest hipser wedding ever. I expect LOADS of cute mason jars.

    Also, I feel for that girl. Kate is going to try to groom her into Bos 2.0

  18. Bored says:

    Gawd I wonder if Alexander skarsgard got an invite he is back in LA and likes a good booz up at parties

  19. Maureen says:

    She loves Jasper because the girl reminds Kate of herself. She doesn’t love Jasper for Jasper, as an individual person. OMG, that is so classic Kate Bosworth. Total self-obsession all the way.

  20. Kemper says:

    I still think she ceated on A. Skarsgard. If not physically, emotionally.

  21. pretty kitty says:

    just read edit article
    “the wedding the whole world has been waiting for” – said no one ever!!
    when a Victoria beckham dress is baggy on you, you are way to damn thin!!!

  22. stellalovejoydiver says:

    “It was a lead female role, such a rare opportunity.”

    Haha, a rare moment of self-awareness.
    In demand actresses even those who aren’t the second coming of Meryl Streep have had more than one lead role in their almost decade long career.

  23. Is this the girl Chris Martin allegedly cheated on Goop with?

  24. Sara says:

    Oh wow, in the picture wearing the pink dress, just looks unhealthy. I know she has always had the super thin look but I really thought her beauty is more striking when she looks more like her Blue Crush character.

  25. Josie says:

    She should have been a model, not an actress.

  26. donnadew says:

    She couldn’t be a model. Her proportions are wrong, bad hands and feet, skewed face due to constant plastic surgery. And now she looks hella old (see the second picture).At this point she’s settled for being a “personality.” With a
    bad personality.
