Emily VanCamp - Hamptons Magazine September Cover Girl

Emily VanCamp lays by the pool on the cover of Hamptons magazine’s September 2012 issue.
Here is what the 26-year-old Revenge actress had to share with the mag:
On her own TV guilty pleasures: “I have definitely dabbled in The Bachelorette. It’s a great way to escape and relax with a glass of wine and just put all of my work stuff to rest for an hour or two and focus on other people’s relationships and the absurdity of it all. You get sucked in.”
On dating her costar Josh Bowman: “We don’t really talk about our relationship. The show becomes about your personal life if you talk about it too much.”
On the female rivalry on her hit showRevenge and why guys seem to like to watch women fight: “I don’t know, but it’s a good thing! I’m all about strong female empowerment. It’s funny, a lot of men watch this show—and I don’t think any of us were expecting that in the beginning. They’re more hooked than their wives! It’s kind of hard not to look. It’s like watching a train wreck.”
On her new found sense and interest in fashion that’s come with her recent success: “It’s definitely a departure from my real life because I’m not particularly fashion savvy. I certainly try, though. I borrowed an Oscar de la Renta dress from the wardrobe department for an event and I went to Jason Wu’s show when I was in New York. That was amazing– to see these unbelievably gorgeous women walking around in the designer’s clothes. It’s otherworldly. I want to do more of it. I find it fascinating. What’s nice about working with a stylist is being pushed to step outside the box a little bit and try something new. I tend to very traditional and stick to the basics. I’m just developing a desire to get into that world. It’s nice to learn people who know what they’re doing.”

The Beach Boys - Good Vibrations Video

The Beach Boys are an American rock band, formed in 1961 in Hawthorne, California. The group initially comprised brothers BrianDennis and Carl Wilson, their cousin Mike Love, and friend Al Jardine. They were managed early on by the Wilsons' father, Murry. The band's leader, composer, arranger and producer, Brian Wilson was responsible for writing most of the band's early singles and albums. After signing with Capitol Records in mid-1962, Wilson wrote or co-wrote more than two dozen Top 40 hits including "Surfin' Safari", "Surfin' USA", "Surfer Girl", "Little Deuce Coupe", "Be True to Your School", "In My Room", "Fun, Fun, Fun", "I Get Around", "Dance Dance Dance", "Help Me Rhonda" and "California Girls". These songs and their accompanying albums were internationally popular, making The Beach Boys one of the biggest acts of their time. The band's early music gained popularity across the United States for its close vocal harmonies and lyrics reflecting a Southern California youth culture of surfing, cars, and romance. By the mid-1960s, Brian's growing creative ambition and songwriting ability would dominate the group's musical direction. The primarily Brian-composed Pet Sounds album and "Good Vibrations" single (both released in 1966) featured a complex, intricate and multi-layered sound.

Emma Stone - Interview Magazine Cover September

Emma Stone looks fierce on the cover ofInterview magazine’s September 2012 issue.
Here is what the 23-year-old actress had to share with the mag:
On heartbreak: “Like, within the hour. I remember being on the floor… I have never felt anything quite like that. It was so visceral. It’s like someone has killed you and you have to live through it and watch it happen… It was awful.”
On frequent co-star Ryan Gosling: “I’ve asked him to read a couple of scripts. I just really like hearing his viewpoint because I know that it’s never going to be tainted. He’s very much his own person. It has really just been scripts so far, because I only met him two years ago when we did Crazy, Stupid, Love, but it was like meeting a member of your team or something. I really like his brain.”
On the paparazzi after Spider-Man: “Of course, you do have that moment where you want to say, “I don’t know why there are eight of you here, and I’d like to have a conversation with you so I can know why you need this picture of me walking around . . .” And there are people who start to get really self-defensive and preach to you about why you’re wrong for questioning it. But not everyone is like that. There was this one Hasidic guy who wore a suit, and he was following me around for a while in New York. He was taking my picture, and I was like, “What are you doing?” And he put down the camera and was really nervous and said, “This week, People is running a story on you, so I need three pictures.” And I was like, “Well, at least I know why you’re here.’” But then sometimes they’re like, “You chose this! Why’d you pick Spider-Man?” and you feel like an object or a zoo animal or something.”
