FIVE COVERS FOR THE MAY ISSUE OF MARIE CLAIRE
Iggy Azalea, Felicity Jones, Zoë Kravitz, Hailee Steinfeld, and Kate Upton are the five Fresh Faces of Marie Claire’s May issue (on newsstands April 21). The cover girls grace five different covers of the issue, which also happens to have the longest cover (36 inches!) ever produced in magazine history. What we love about this year’s crop of Fresh Faces — besides their mega talent — is their fearless attitudes toward career (with physically demanding film roles, say) and life (like picking up and leaving home at 16). And their willingness to say, “Why’s next?” Whatever that is, count us in.
FRESH FACES QUOTES
On the Internet feeding frenzy over paparazzi photos of her: “I hope women think, Iggy Azalea actually has a body that is relatable to my body… and you should feel fucking good about that.”
On singing: “I can get vocal training as much as I want, but I will never be able to sing."
On her role in this month’s Pitch Perfect 2: “I couldn’t believe I was making this movie. I was like, ‘Oh, my God! There’s Rebel! I literally gained 10 older sisters. We have a group chat that hasn’t stopped since we made the movie.”
On losing weight for her role in The Road Within: “I went through eating disorders in high school, so it triggered some old stuff. I was so thin that I wasn’t getting my period. And part of me didn’t want to gain the weight back, which was really scary. People were like, ‘You look so good!’ I was like, Oh, my God, that is disturbing.”
On living in New York City: “I have always had this secret desire to live in New York from watching Sex and the City growing up.”
On motivation: “Anytime there’s doubt or someone says I can’t do something. I always accomplish it. Haters and doubters are very, very good motivation.”
On People naming her Sexiest Woman Alive: “My parents were pretty funny about it. They told me, ‘We went out to dinner and dressed a little nicer because our daughter is the Sexiest Woman Alive.’”
