Behati Prinsloo is wrapping up 2013 on a high note! Tonight, she'll reunite with her pals and kindred Victoria's Secret Angels to watch their annual VS Fashion Show as it airs at 10 p.m. / 9 p.m. Central on CBS. Behati visited us in NYC to chat about the big show. She also revealed the most surprising aspect of being an Angel, and touched on the excitement of planning her wedding to Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine next year.
David and Victoria Beckham are front and center on Vogue Paris's December/January issue, and the duo brought serious sexiness to the cover. They were photographed by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin for the issue, which Victoria had "so much fun" guest editing. In addition to her and David's spread, the pages include personal family pictures and holiday memories straight from Victoria. She also touched on her relationship with David, telling writer Marie Darrieussecq that they have had their "ups and downs." She added about her four children, "I really enjoy being a mum. I love [my children] and I'd do anything for them."
Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson's easygoing rapport isn't just obvious on the big screen; it's also readily apparent even when they aren't in character as Katniss and Peeta. We sat down with the hilarious duo as they kicked off their Catching Fire press tour, getting them to dish on what fans would be surprised to learn about them, how they relate to Peeta and Katniss's struggles with fame, and, of course, Jennifer's notable new haircut. Catching Fire hits theaters on Nov. 22.
Kate Hudson has a new athleticwear line, Fabletics, and we caught up with the multitalented actress to chat about the women's athleticwear and why she wanted to create her own line. Hudson also talked about another fashionable member of her family — her son Ryder! Watch to hear her talk about Fabletics and Ryder's impressive sense of style.
Daniel Radcliffe is moving on from his Harry Potter persona with films like this week's Kill Your Darlings, where he plays a young Allen Ginsberg. Along with a few reporters, I chatted with Radcliffe at TIFF about making the film with costar Dane DeHaan (and becoming BFFs), how he has written a film script, and why he likes working on smaller productions after Potter.
How did you get along with Dane DeHaan?
Daniel Radcliffe: Dane is incredible. Dane's probably the best friend I've made through acting, certainly. He's somebody I see a lot of whenever we can — him and his wife. They're fantastic people. I think building chemistry with people is really just a matter of being curious about them, and being interested, and I think Dane and I got on very well immediately. And we worked on it — you have to work to build chemistry, even if it's as simple as sitting down and just sharing stupid stories from your teenage years about sh*t you did. Just so you build up a relationship.
Are there any unforgettable memories from shooting?
DR: Getting kicked out of Columbia University at 4 in the morning because we're not allowed to film there anymore is not something I will quickly forget. That was very cool. It's the first time in my life that I remember running away from members of our own crew to complete a shot. Our producers were kind of trying to run us off, saying 'no, no, you have to leave, you're costing us money.'
Do you have plans to work in film outside of acting?
DR: I have written a script. I've completed it; I don't know if it's any good, but it's certainly nice to have finished something. That's a huge achievement for me at this point. It's a very, very dark comedy. There's always themes I'm really interested in. They are themes that aren't dissimilar to [Kill Your Darlings], about friendship and when a friendship becomes unhealthy and what you have to do to move on from that. But it's a much more heightened scenario. It's probably sh*t! But the point is, I've finished it, and the next thing I write won't be!
Will you return to theater soon?
DR: It's rather like asking a woman who's just given birth if she's having any more. I just finished a play about a week and a half ago. Yes, absolutely 100 percent — [but] not now.
Do you have a preference for working on movies or in theater?
DR: My preference, if I had to choose one, would be film. I've grown up there; there's a sense of comfort and familiarity on a film set, which I've recently realized is unusual. There's young actors just coming out of drama school, and they have to learn stuff. Because I don't even think about that — there's stuff that's just second nature to me — hitting marks, and finding lights, and the technical side of it.
Coming from an environment of huge film sets of Harry Potter, what's refreshing about making smaller films?
DR: Everything, absolutely. It's a much better way of working, and it's a much more creative way of working to have to go quickly rather than going slow. Twenty-four shooting days — I think that adds something to the film, and I think that adds a kind of vitality you need in a film about youth and about the Beat Generation.
What are some of the differences?
DR: Really the only difference in doing big films as opposed to small films — they're very superficial, the differences — they're things like, how long do you have the crane camera for? On Potter, where I grew up, there were two crane cameras on set all the time, just because you might need one later! And I didn't even realize that was weird or unusual. And we were recceing locations for this shoot, and I heard John (Krokidas, the director) say to our producer, "OK, so this is the day we'll have the crane." And I was like, oh, we get one day with the crane, and we have to do all our crane stuff.
There's stuff like, you don't have a trailer on these films, but honestly I sort of prefer that because it means, if you have trailers, all the actors go back to their trailers and they just don't f*cking talk to each other. Whereas if you're on a film like this, you just have to sit in green rooms, and you have to actually engage with each other and it's much nicer. I hate when actors say stuff like, "there's so much waiting around on film sets, film sets are so boring. You wait in your trailer for so long." You actually don't, you don't have to wait in your trailer at all, you can just be on set, talking to people and having a nice time. I always get annoyed by that. It can only be boring if you allow it to be boring.
Ed Westwick plays Tybalt in Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes's upcoming Romeo and Juliet, which holds fast to the time period and romanticism of the Shakespeare classic. We caught up with the actor to talk about tackling The Bard's beloved play and the film's wise-beyond-her-years Juliet, Hailee Steinfeld. Westwick also reflected on why he left NYC in his rearview after Gossip Girl came to a close and how he's working to transcend Chuck Bass in the next chapter of his career. Romeo and Juliet hits theaters on Oct. 11.
POPSUGAR: Tybalt has always seemed to me to be maybe the most interesting character in Romeo and Juliet. What attracted you to this specific role?
Ed Westwick: Well, first of all, we share something there, because I agree. I was always intrigued with the character ever since I was young, and when I heard the project was coming around, I thought, 'I have to do this. I have to give it my governance.' So that was it. I wanted to go on my own journey with the character but try to be something different.
PS: There's sword fighting required for this part, of course, so that had to have been a fun element to pursue. Did you have any related experience beforehand?
EW: No, I didn't. We worked with [an expert] in Italy — he was brilliant — and that sort of scene choreography, it was so much fun. I really enjoyed watching it in the film. I think it came off really well.
PS: What has life after Gossip Girl given you in terms of freedom to pursue different things in your life and your career? A TV show schedule is so grueling.
EW: Yeah, I mean especially with the character that I played. I suppose for a lot of people, they think of me being that role, and I think one of the challenges is to show people I'm not a one-trick pony. I'm an actor, and that was one character that I designed, and what I want to do now is expand on that and be involved in different projects that I'm passionate about and that I can be inspired by and work with people who are inspiring in themselves. Just enjoy the different things that are out there, hopefully.
PS: And have you stayed in New York, or did you decide to leave once that chapter was done?
EW: I decided to leave. I felt like I experienced New York in a very specific way, and I was ready for a fresh break and a change elsewhere.

Justin Timberlake is everywhere right now and not just because of his new album — he'll be back on the big screen when his new movie Runner Runner hits theaters this weekend. In the movie, JT plays a grad student who gets mixed up in the dangerous world behind a lucrative online gambling site. Ben Affleck stars opposite him in the film, and Ben recently joked that working with JT was bad for his self-esteem. We chatted with Justin about Ben's comment at the film's recent press day in Las Vegas, as well as what it was like filming in Puerto Rico and how Justin manages to juggle so many projects at once — on so little sleep.

Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Brühl may play rival F1 racers in Ron Howard's Rush, but the two presented a united front at the Toronto International Film Festival to premiere their film. Chris, who trimmed 30 pounds off his frame after playing Thor to portray racer James Hunt, talked with us about what he missed most while he was on the bare-bones diet. The transformation was more than physical; Ron compared his leading man's performance in the film to one of Robert De Niro's most memorable roles. Rush hits theaters on Sept. 27.
