With her new movie “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” set to hit theaters on September 23rd, Nina Dobrev garnered herself a little added exposure by covering the October 2012 issue of Seventeen magazine.
The 23-year-old actress looked colorful and cute on the Yu Tsai shot front page while dishing about everything from her romance with Ian Somerhalder to dealing with fame on the inside pages.
Highlights from Miss Dobrev’s interview are as follows.
On being a kid at heart:
“I want to go to Harry Potter Land! I actually should text Emma Watson to see if she can hook us up with a backstage pass or something. That’s the perk of doing a movie with Emma called The Perks Of Being A Wallflower.”
On her character’s abusive relationship in “The Perks Of Being A Wallflower”:
“It’s a really heavy topic, and I hope my character gives girls some perspective. I think more than anything, girls allow abuse to happen because they’re embarrassed it happened and that they allowed it to happen. They know it’s not right. There’s no excuse for it. That’s why it’s so important to show girls that they can admit that it’s not their fault.”
On the importance of “Girlfriend Time”:
“Girls weekend with the Vampire Diaries girls has become a big deal! It’s our quality time. It’s so much fun to unload and not feel guilty complaining or talking about your insecurities or bonding over things that you thought you were on your own about. When we get there, we go to dinner or cook dinner together, watch movies, lie on the beach, and take tons of pictures.”
On her relationship with Ian:
“The first time I was on the cover of Seventeen, the cover line said ‘Nina: Why she wouldn’t date any of her co-stars.’ And then cut to two years later…it’s funny that I said that, but you know what? It was honestly what I believed at the time. I didn’t want to be dating one of my costars-my goal on the show was to be professional. But sometimes you can’t help who you have a connection with, and you can only fight it for so long-which I did for a really, really long time.”
On dealing with the pressures of fame:
“I try not to read best-dressed lists or anything like that. For every good thing, there will often be a not-so-nice thing people would say. My mom sends me lots of messages like, ‘You’re standing next to Kate Winslet! Oh my god, I love Kate Winslet!'”
