a word from teresa

My magic boy. You’re 5 today. My bright, sensitive, thoughtful, worldly lover of nature and animals, carer of people and puggles, brave adventurer, snuggliest gigglepot and inquisitive…

Yesterday from Teresa Palmer's Twitter

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

The night before Teresa Palmer started filming this month’s hotly anticipated reboot of 1991’s surf-crime classic Point Break, she watched the original–for the first time. “I was one of the only people in the world who hadn’t seen it,” the Aussie actress says of the cult favorite, which stars Keanu Reeves as FBI agent Johnny Utah and Patrick Swayze as bank-robbing surf guru Bodhi. Her verdict? “I loved it.”

While fans of the original will recognize familiar characters and plot elements in this latest rendition, which spans nine countries and multiple extreme sports, Palmer, who plays a new surfer named Samsara, says she “wouldn’t have done this movie if it was a remake. It feels like we’re making a new film and just using that as a launching pad to go huge.”

“Going huge” is precisely what’s been happening in Palmer’s career. The 29-year-old first made waves in 2013’s off-beat zombie love story Warm Bodies, and she has a whopping nine films in the works, including Nicholas Sparks’ tearjerker The Choice and Terrence Malick’s Knight of Cups, both due out in 2016. “I’ve got the craziest schedule of my life,” she says, as her 20-month-old son Bodhi–not named for Point Break, she stresses–plays in the background. “I’m a working mama now.”

Despite the filming schedule and pressures of motherhood, Palmer still manages to run a popular health and wellness website, Your Zen Life, with fellow actress Phoebe Tonkin. There, she says, people can “see my authentic self. I just want to be the voice of real.”
