Nina Dobrev keeps it cool in a McQ jacket on the February 2012 cover of Nylon.
Styled by Michelle Reneau and Beth Hoppe, the 23-year-old actress chatted about Drake, going into movies and being a ‘cat-woman.’ Check it:
On expanding into films: “I want to become a different person, and that’s what working in film allows. I want to be a punk or a sweetheart or a drug addict! There are so many things to explore… Sometimes they’ll be like, ‘She’s not plain enough.’ Or ‘She’s not edgy enough.’ That frustrates me. I feel like a blank canvas, and I wish people would be a little more open-minded.”
On being a cat woman: “I’m gonna say [I am a] ‘cat woman,’ because ‘cat lady’ makes me sound 500 years old… But I love my furry friends. I even made a calendar for 2012. It’s called My Pussies: A Hairy Love Story. [Cats] just migrate to me. I’m pretty sure I was a cat in a past life.”
On her former Degrassi costar, Aubrey Graham (Drake): “He was so sweet. It’s almost weird to me that he’s a rapper and a sex symbol now. I remember being in the car going to a party, singing along with the radio, and somebody said ‘Isn’t that your buddy Drake?’ I was like, ‘Who’s Drake?’”
FYI: Nina paired her jacket with an Emporio Armani shirt, Siwy shorts, a Pamela Love ring, and a Lee Angel ring.
