Isabela Moner Says Representation Matters Just as Much Behind The Camera

Isabela Moner Says Representation Matters Just as Much Behind The Camera

Isabela Moner takes center stool in this new cover feature for PorterEdit!

The 17-year-old Dora and the Lost City of Gold actress opened up with the digital mag about how representation matters behind the camera, as well as the hopes for her future.

On why representation behind the camera is so important: “Those people are the ones making the decisions, and it’s up to them to choose whether or not to look at only Caucasian actresses, black actresses or Hispanics. Even writers will write what they know. I don’t blame the writers because they don’t know my culture, [but] by including more [diverse] writers, that will make it easier, because you’re just speaking your truth.”

On what she would change about Hollywood: “I dislike the praise that comes with being someone who is minorly successful in the industry and wish we were treated like regular people with jobs. […] I wish [acting] were considered a normal job.”

On her hopes for her career in the future: “I want to be able to play any kind of Meryl Streep-type situation, because she’s so versatile. My one goal in my career is to confuse people – I never want to be put in a box.”

Mena Massoud Shows Off His Giant Flower Tattoo in 'Man About Town' Feature

Mena Massoud Shows Off His Giant Flower Tattoo in 'Man About Town' Feature

Mena Massoud is giving us major heart palpitations in his new feature with Man About Town magazine.

The 27-year-old Aladdin star went shirtless in many of the photos, set in a garage for the mag, and opened up about taking on the role of a leading man and the power of diversity in the new film. Check it:

On connecting with Aladdin: “[Aladdin] is a young man finding his way in the world. He’s trying to figure out his identity. When he meets a pretty girl and he thinks he’s not good enough…. I grew up feeling like that. I also felt like an outcast. I went to a high school that didn’t have a lot of visibly ethnic people. I felt very different from everybody. And Aladdin is the same. […] I connected to that, because I knew I could bring my own experience to the role.”

On the diversity of Aladdin: “Everyone on screen is a person of colour and not only that, we’re all from very different places […] You know, I’m Egyptian-Canadian. Naomi is British-Indian. Marwan is Tunisian-Dutch. Navid [Negahban] is Iranian-American, but he also spent time in Germany. It’s all incredibly diverse and I hope people celebrate that.”

On being a leading man: “It’s harder for me to be a leading man, because of the lack of opportunity and the fact that people are not used to it. It’s going to take time for people to get used seeing a person of color as a lead actor, because we have been doing only one thing for so many years.”

Nolan Gould Goes Shirtless For A Super Hot Photo Feature - See It Here!

Nolan Gould shows off his toned physique in his hottest photo shoot to date with C’Est Prune.

In the feature, the 20-year-old actor opens up about growing up on Modern Family, his new movie, and more. Check it:

On his next project: “The show keeps me busy for most of the year so it’s difficult to work on other projects. Although I did shoot a movie last Summer called Yes that will be premiering at Dances with Films this June. It will hopefully be released in a few theaters across the country so stay tuned.”

On Luke Dunphy and growing up on screen: “I think it goes without saying that it’s pretty crazy having spent ten, coming up on eleven, years on a TV show. That’s almost half my life. It’s been such a big part of my life for the last decade that it’s going to be very strange moving on. I’m not sure what to compare it to for someone that hasn’t been a part of it. Maybe it’s similar to finally finishing school after years of studying and hard work. I’ll be sad to leave it behind but I’m looking forward to the future.

“I didn’t used to [relate to Luke] when the show first started but as the years go on it’s getting harder for me to separate us in my mind. Sometimes, especially from the earlier episodes, I can’t remember if I actually did something or if it was just me acting. I guess spending half of your life as someone else will do that to you.”

On his passion for the outdoors: “Being outside is my favorite thing and the one downside to acting is that you spend most of your time in an enclosed sound stage.”

Tyler Blackburn Says Ashley Benson Friendship Blurred Lines Sometimes

Tyler Blackburn Says Ashley Benson Friendship Blurred Lines Sometimes

Tyler Blackburn sits on a fence for a feature in the gender and sexuality issue of Playboy.

The 32-year-old Roswell, New Mexico actor opened up about his sexuality and his relationship with former Pretty Little Liars co-star and friend Ashley Benson.

“We never officially dated,” he said. “In navigating our relationship—as co-workers but also as friends—sometimes the lines blurred a little. We had periods when we felt more for each other, but ultimately we’re good buds. For the most part, those rumors made us laugh. But then sometimes we’d be like, ‘Did someone see us hugging the other night?’ She was a huge part of a huge change in my life, so I’ll always hold her dear.”
