Glamour Magazine features three different covers for the month of May, showcasing Hollywood’s hottest young faces — Ashley Greene, Emma Stone and Freida Pinto. With a collection of fourteen movies released between the three of them this year, their peppy covers may not exude what kind of force they truly are.
Shot by fashion photog Matthias Vriens-McGrath, each spread pops with bright Spring and Summer colors and patterns as well as the classic whites of warmer weather. And although the photos are keeping the motif of light and bright, the actresses delve into serious issues concerning their careers within the pages of the magazine.
Ashley Greene, who is best recognized as Twilight‘s Alice Cullen, is sure to let Glamour’s readers know that she’s more than just one character and hopes to expand her image with taking on very different roles in the future… even if she has to wait.
“It is difficult because people look at you as that character. I want to play a role of a 24-year-old woman, not 17-year-old girls. So I have picked a couple of films like Butter to show that. And it’s perfectly fine not to do anything for a year if I don’t find the right thing,” says Greene.
The newly blonde bombshell, Emma Stone, might be working harder than ever but that doesn’t mean she isn’t aware of how to be a 22-year-old girl. This becomes especially apparent when the magazine asks her about what she looks for in a guy.
“Honestly, I cannot put a finger on it. One guy could do something that I would find deplorable, and [with] another guy I’d find it charming…. It depends on the person. The one thing that needs to be there is that indefinable spark of sorts. But I’m 22 years old…. I have no idea what I’m talking about,” Stone proclaims giggling.
And although Hollywood can sometimes be fun and games, 26-year-old Slumdog Millionaire star Freida Pinto has been faced with enough adversity in her career to demand respect. Recently, while filming Black Gold with Antonio Banderas in Tunisia, the actress had to continue shooting while the country was in revolutionary upheaval.
“There was a civil war going on. People were burning down shops and malls; there was killing and bloodshed. I was stuck in this massive hotel with 354 rooms and only six guests. The lights kept shutting down, and there was a 5:00pm curfew,” Freida explained.
So keep your eye out for these young women, because beyond the good looks and giggles, they happen to be some of the hardest working young women in Hollywood, and floral dresses and all, they’re demanding our respect. Check out the rest of the photos from the photoshoots below:
