We continue to catch up with some missing updates. We have added additional outtakes and portrait of recent sessions Rachel did to promote “Southpaw” and “True Detective“. Many thanks to Bubbles from Matt Ryan Daily, Claudia from McDonnell Rule and Luciana from Caitriona Fan for their donations!
We are very happy to announce that we officially finished reorganizing and updating our gallery. It took way longer than expected but thank you for your patience. A few additional outtakes have been added to our gallery and we also replaced a bunch of photoshoot sets with better quality. All the updated album links can be found after the jump. Thanks to my friend Luciana for her donations.
I will work on fixing the gallery links in old posts the coming weeks so it’s easier to browse trough our archives. When I finish I’m planning on getting our site content up-to-date again so stay tuned!
Allure magazine uploaded the official behind the scenes/on set video of Rachel during her Allure August 2014 cover shoot. We added the video in our media archive and the screen captures in our gallery. The video also features her on set interview in which she talks about the inspiration for the shoot (Tess by director Roman Polanski), how her look has changed over the years, the one makeup bag item she couldn’t possibly live without, and her “dirty” signature scent.
In case you missed it: The interview excerpts and cover photoshoot can be found in our previous update.
Rachel is gracing Allure magazine’s August 2014 cover, like we previously reported, to promote “A Most Wanted Man“. Allure released a preview of the photoshoot and interview earlier today. We have added the photoshoot and behind the scenes photo in our gallery. You can find the interview excerpts below as well (Via ET Canada & JustJared). We will add the magazine scans and full interview transcript as soon as possible. The magazine will hit newsstands next week, on Tuesday, July 29.
On working with Philip Seymour Hoffman: “I learned so much from him. He really takes you under— he really took me under his wing. You feel very taken care of, but at the same time there’s an element of danger: There’s a crackle in every scene. He makes sure the stakes are very high, and there’s a safety there, too. He had so much natural, raw talent, but he worked so hard, too. He really worked for it and didn’t let up. I’m sure that wasn’t easy.”
On the legacy she wants to leave behind: “I’m hoping it’s going to be complicated and have lots of dead ends and corners and sharp turns. I hope it can’t be summed up too easily when I’m done.”
On Ryan Gosling’s Hey Girl meme: “I know you’re not going to believe me, but I don’t follow it.”
On working with Lindsay Lohan: “If anything, I was in awe of her talent. I looked at her as this experienced actor, and she had great comedic timing, so natural. It’s just funny to hear that because you never know what people are thinking. We all try to act like we’ve got it together.”
On her big-screen debut role in The Hot Chick: “I remember standing backstage, dressed like a mechanic. I had a pink bikini on underneath, grease on my face, and I just remember breathing deep and thinking, Oh, my God, I have to go out there and do this striptease, as a man…as a woman. How did I get here? It was probably one of the scariest moments I’ve had in my career. It stretched me in ways I could have never imagined. Literally.”
On if she still believes in true love: “Oh yeah, for sure. Absolutely.”
