Nicole on early fame when she was married to Tom Cruise: “In those early years, it was like, ‘I’m here and I’m clutching onto your arm, and it all feels a little overwhelming and really strange,” she recalls. “And I was shy. Deeply shy. I didn’t feel comfortable at all. But I felt very comfortable at home.”

 

Nicole on her husband of six years, Keith Urban: “He just gave me confidence through just being very kind to me and understanding me, opening me up to trying things, my sexuality, those sorts of things.”


Nicole on pregnancy rumors: “Less as you get older. All of that other stuff becomes less important. Like, I’ve always had a little belly. I mean, now that I’m 45, they don’t say, ‘Oh, she’s pregnant!’ as much. But I’ve got skinny arms and legs, and then I’ve got a little belly.”

Nicole on red carpet attire: "I make sure to wear comfortable dresses because I want to be able to go out afterward and, you know, bend.”

Inside the 22-year-old country singer dished on everything from her friendships with Emma Stone and Selena Gomez to being misunderstood.

Taylor on the importance of having girlfriends: “They are so important in my life right now. I'm the kind of girl who needs to tell her friends everything. I've developed this really close-knit group of girls. Two of my close friends are bandmates. My other close friends are Ashley, Claire, Diana, Emma (Stone), and Selena (Gomez).”

Taylor on her friendship with Emma Stone and Selena Gomez: “I met Emma when I was 17, and I met Selena when I was 18. So they’ve experienced all of this with me, and they’ve also experienced their own amazing success, and somehow through all of it, we’ve stayed close."

Taylor on being misunderstood: “I think some people think it’s just apple pie and sunshine and sprinkles and ponies. Which is just funny. But I never feel the need to go out and make some grand statement that I’m dark and twisty and complicated, because I’m not that either. It’s just not as simple as ponies and rainbows, though I do love ponies and rainbows.”

Gwyneth Paltrow Covers InStyle's October 2012 Issue

Gwyneth Paltrow is featured on the cover of InStyle's October 2012 issue wearing a sleek and sophisticated, plum colored Diane von Furstenberg jumpsuit paired with Fred Leighton earrings and Vhernier bracelets.

Inside the 39-year-old dishes on her dieting habits, not allowing her kids to watch television in their native English and she and husband, Chris Martin's differences.

On the differences between her and her husband, Chris Martin: "Probably our artistic temperaments. Artists are sensitive; there are ups and downs mood-wise. Musicians need a certain gravitas and focus in order to write. The temperament that goes with someone who is creative can be challenging. I focus more on understanding than being understood."

Gwyneth on only allowing her children to watch television in a foreign language: "I only let them watch TV in French or Spanish. When I'm in France, I go to [Boulevard] Beaumarchais and buy all their cartoons."

Gwyneth on her draconian diet: "I was very strict for a while, I was macrobiotic for a couple of years, then I got pregnant and just ate ice cream. What I've learned is that I want to enjoy my life, and food us a big part of it. I love to cook and feed people. I cook everyday."

Gwyneth on her favorite food to indulge in: "My indulging is a fresh baguette with cheese and a glass of red wine or french fries and fried zucchini. Or a turkey burger."

Keira Knightley Covers Vogue's October 2012 Issue

Keira Knightley graces the cover of Vogue's October 2012 issue wearing an embroidered, lace Chanel Haute Couture organza gown paired with matching metallic gloves and glittering diamond and pearl drop earrings. For her accompanying editorial, Vogue's Creative Director, Grace Coddington, styled Knightley in couture creations from Valentino and Dior.

Inside, the 27-year-old star dishes on being a feminist, on staring in a West End Play and her role in Anna Karenina.

Keira on being a feminist: "I remember doing interviews, and people would ask, as if it was a joke, 'So you mean you are a feminist?' As though feminism couldn't be discussed unless we were making fun of it. I don't want to deny my femininity, but would I want to be a stay-at-home mother? No. On the other hand, you should be allowed to do that, as should men without being sneered at."

Keira on starring in a West End play: “It was terrifying. I knew that I knew very little, but I didn’t realize how much I needed to pick up until four weeks before we opened. I mean technically, as in learning how to project into an 800-seat theater… I’d love to do a new play. Which is why I think Off-Broadway or in a smaller venue in London would be amazing.”

Keira on playing the character Anna Karenina: “When I reread the book last summer, I went, ‘Oh!’ It’s not a romance at all. I don’t think that Tolstoy is saying this is what you should do for love; quite a lot of the time he is saying the reverse. He hates Anna at certain moments. She is both a villain and a heroine. She can be incredibly vain and manipulative. She is somebody who breaks her own moral code, and yet the shame and disgust she lives with because of that make her fascinating.”

Jennifer Lawrence Covers W Magazine's October 2012 Issue

Jennifer Lawrence covers W Magazine's October 2012 issue in a black, feathered strapless gown. Her accompanying editorial has her posing in several feathered frocks (channeling a Mockingjay perhaps).  Inside, the 22-year-old star dishes on life in Hollywood, her dancing skills for her role in The Silver Linings Playbook and more.

Jennifer on trying to keep her Hunger Games role a secret on the Oscars red carpet: “My mom talked about Hunger Games on the red carpet at the Academy Awards, which was something I had told her a million times not to do. She’s like Dina Lohan!— but she has good taste.”

Jennifer on her dancing talent for The Silver Linings Playbook: “I’m such a bad dancer. I don’t have many talents: I’m not a good cook, I can’t clean, and I can’t sew. The only thing I can do well is shoot bow and arrow—which I learned to do for The Hunger Games and will probably never come in handy—and act.”

Jennifer on life in Hollywood: “Sadly, I cannot live in Los Angeles anymore. I don’t understand how actors can do it. You have no life here. You are followed everywhere. It’s not like that anywhere else in the world. I don’t want to stay in L.A. and start thinking that’s reality— because it’s very far from normal. But I still love movies. I’m just going to love being in them from Kentucky, or Prague, or somewhere else.”

Kate on meeting her fiance, Matthew Bellamy: “He was immediately very protective and, you know, watchful. I Googled him right away!
