"I have to not take myself too seriously and I have to realise that if it is meant to be, it will be."

PRET-A-PORTER – Events like Women in Film’s annual Crystal + Lucy Awards — held Tuesday night at the Hyatt Regency in Century City and presented by MaxMara, BMW of North America and Tiffany & Co. — serve to empower women by celebrating the work of accomplished leading ladies in Hollywood in the fields of film, TV and media.

We decided to ask some of the guests how they would empower themselves if they could travel back in time and have a chat with their 15-year-old selves. We love the answers so much — lots of smart advice for women and girls of all ages

“That you are enough just the way you are. No bells or whistles. You don’t have to put on a façade to try and fit in. You are enough. Most women at that age — these teenagers feel less than — and that they truly can’t be themselves. They are trying to personify someone else … maybe it’s someone they see in the media, and that’s why I feel I have such a responsibility to show my true self. This industry gives off a false sense of reality in so many ways, so it’s nice to strip it bare and say, ‘Hey, this is my authentic self and you are free to be your authentic self too.’” – actress Teresa Palmer

VS MAGAZINE – Teresa Palmer is living the dream. At her 2013 wedding to actor/ director Mark Webber, the couple read emails they had written to each other in the 40 days leading up to their first meeting. The exchange was initiated after the Australian actress tweeted on Webber’s film about single parenthood, The End of Love. “We got to know each other’s spirits and hearts rather than it being something physical. It felt really old school in an ironic way – like modern day love letters.”

Not everything went off without a hitch. There was that awkward first date, in which Webber left the roses he’d bought in the car, and was fidgeting, sweating and stuttering. The former model’s reaction was equally fretful. “It was so overwhelming because I knew he was my guy.”

Out of those courting emails came the idea of writing a film together, The Ever After. “It’s about what can happen when communication breaks down in a marriage. We were getting married and it was a juxtaposition of what we were going through.”

The 28-year-old’s career is on a rapid ascent. She plays a stripper in Terence Malick’s Knight of Cups, a role tailor made for Palmer by the director himself. “I was only supposed to do one scene but at the end of the day Terry asked me if I’d come back the next day. This happened for about 8 days. It was a character that wasn’t in the script and everything was ad-libbed.” She also stars alongside Simon Pegg in Australian indie comedy Kill Me Three Times. Webber nearly foiled that one though, by getting the actress pregnant. “When I called to drop out, they said they’d shoot around the bump, so I was playing an awful, murderous human being while six months pregnant.”

She thought it would be her last film for some time, but since giving birth she’s made three films without ever missing an evening with her son. It’s a testament to her dedication to her child as well as a sign that the industry is becoming more attuned to the work/home balance for actresses. Palmer’s forthcoming films are diverse: John Hillcoat’s police thriller Triple Nine, (“That was the first role I did after the birth of my child, I play Casey Affleck’s wife and he’s a cop who gets involved in some corruption”), a Nicholas Sparks-penned romantic tale The Choice, (“I was so excited by the notebook and I remember praying and praying that one day I’ll get to play a character like Allie Hamilton and this landed on my lap”) and the highly anticipated remake of Point Break (“It’s a reinterpretation of the story – it focuses on a group of eco- terrorists. Because I’m a gung-ho vegetarian in real life, the part really spoke to me. I love the idea of people taking from big corporations and pumping it into worthwhile things.”)

Articles and Interviews Awards and Nominations

VARIETY – Two actors on the rise, Scott Eastwood and Teresa Palmer, picked up “Rising Star” awards and discussed their fast-evolving careers at the opening night of the 2015 Maui Film Festival.

Festival director Barry Rivers presented the pair their awards as part of the festival’s opening celebration. They were then interviewed onstage by Variety editor David S. Cohen before a full house at the “Celestial Cinema” outdoor theater at the Wailea Golf Club.

Eastwood proved somewhat laconic but quick with a quip, like his famous father, Clint. At 29, the younger Eastwood has already been making films for 13 years. “It’s been a helluva ride, it really has,” he said. “People don’t realize that you can make a film, and it may not be all that great of a film, but you have an amazing experience. … It’s always a great life experience.”

Palmer, who is more gregarious, recalled being randomly discovered by a teenaged Australian student filmmaker who was casting a film on youth suicide. “It premiered in 2006 at Cannes, and we had a standing ovation, and it completely changed my life. I thought I was going to have this experience and go back to working in retail.”

Both Palmer and Eastwood are transitioning from indies to major roles in high-budget studio films. Palmer called the upcoming “re-envisioning” of “Point Break,” in which she appears, “an homage to the beautiful original film, which I’m a huge fan of.” She said “it’s much more on an international scale; we filmed in 10 countries on four continents.”

But she said her own work on it “didn’t feel any different than doing a little independent Australian movie … I still had the same level of commitment. You just have to shut that out. You just have to remain focused on what you’re there to, which is tell the story of this particular character.

“I’ve learned in the last few years I just want to portray real,” she said. “If I can do a character that’s grounded in reality and find authenticity in her, then I feel like I’m doing my job.”

Of Warner’s “Suicide Squad,” Eastwood could say little, other than to say “I’m allowed to talk about the fact that I’m not allowed to talk about it.”

More generally, he said of big-budget studio films, “Sometimes … they want you to go there and hit your mark and say your lines, so you just have to do what you do and work with what they give you. You still have to be honest and do your best job.”

Asked if she had any heroes in the business, Palmer named one she had worked with: Christian Bale. “I felt like I was in acting school just being in scenes with him.

Eastwood thought carefully before discussing his own heroes. “I got one I can think of,” he quipped, before saying his real heroes are filmmakers. “Guys who are writer-directors like Quentin Tarantino and James Cameron, who have changed the history of the film business.”

Eastwood said his father’s advice, as he paid his dues in oddjobs and indies was: “Stick around. Stick around, because you just never know if it’s going to happen or if it’s not, and you’re going to have to go back to bartending or something.”

The opening night screenings, “Love and Mercy” and “Live From New York” unspooled following the Q&A, under intermittent drizzle that didn’t dampen filmgoers’ spirits.

Articles and Interviews Photoshoots

BYRDIE – Teresa Palmer practically radiates happiness, no doubt a testament to her zen approach to life. But as the actress begins running down the list of projects she has coming up—a whopping six films, including Terrence Malick’s Knight of Cups—it’s evident there is plenty to be happy about these days. The 29-year-old is on the verge of a major year.

When she arrives for her Byrdie photo shoot, Palmer, with son Bodhi in tow, immediately lights up the room with her natural glow. The Aussie and face of cosmetics brand Artistry is synonymous with summer beauty, with her bronzy skin and tousled blond locks, making her the ultimate muse for our warm-weather hair and makeup story. Here, Palmer takes on four effortless looks perfect for the beach and beyond. Keep reading for our exclusive editorial and interview.

Byrdie: How old were you when you first started experimenting with makeup?
Teresa Palmer: I was probably about 9, and I remember my next-door neighbor—she was a few years older than me—she told me that she knew how to apply makeup. And at that time, you would pick three colors from a palette and do a third of your eye up to the eyebrow with a green color, and the next third along would be a blue color, and the next third along would be a red color. And we would apply our makeup like that from our moms’ color palettes when we were really young.

B: How would you describe your everyday beauty look?
TP: Completely natural—barefaced, momma style, and very laid-back. I have wild, curly, beachy hair, so that just does its own thing, which makes it very easy for me. And then I just never wear makeup, so for me it’s extremely natural. It’s a very different situation if I am going to an event.

B: What about for date night or if you’re going out with girlfriends?
TP: Yeah, I’ll do a little concealer and a pop of lip. I’ve been really enjoying the new Indigo Skies range by Artistry. I wear the really deep purple red color [ArtistrySignature Color Lipstick ($25) in Velvet]. I love a really dark lip. I think because I’m so fair, I love the juxtaposition of a dark color on my face and having light eyes and hair. I also love a dark brow, so I’ll do that. You know, very sort of dewy cheeks I think is really lovely too.
