Mary is looking as lovely as ever in the latest issue of Bello Mag. In the article, Mary talks about her love for French pop and how it influenced her album and how she came to work with Dan the Automator. Also, she talks about how after one episode of watching the French version of The Returned (Les Revenants), she became “hooked after one episode” (She’s starring in the A&E remake for 2015).

Be sure to read the full interview and check out the pics in the gallery.

Mary is absolutely stunning in the latest issue of Institute Magazine. In the interview, Mary talks about her new films, Kill the Messenger and The Hollars, which actor has influenced her the most, and more. You can read the full interview here, along with some highlights below. And be sure to check out the gallery for the amazing new pictures!

Additionally, Yahoo! Movies debuted a new clip yesterday from Kill the Messenger, which you can now view below. The film will hit theaters on October 10th. I’ve also added caps of Mary into the gallery. You can view the full set by clicking on the thumbnails.

Institute: What drew you to the part of Anna Simons? Institute: How was it working alongside Jeremy Renner?

Mary Elizabeth Winstead: I was very excited to play Anna, as she’s the editor of the paper and quite an authoritative figure. And yet, she is still young and relatively inexperienced and not perfect. She’s smart and strong, but also fallible. She gets in a little over her head when the story breaks and her relationship with Gary becomes strained. It was great to get to play out this friendship/working relationship with Jeremy onscreen. He’s such an incredible actor and it was so easy to feel so many things for him in any given scene. Gary can be very frustrating for Anna at times, but what she sees him go through is ultimately heartbreaking.

Institute: You have worked alongside some incredible talent, who has been the most influential?

Mary Elizabeth Winstead: It was great to watch Jeremy work- he’s such a free and instinctual actor. You never know what choices he’s going to make from scene to scene and that’s always really exciting and invigorating to act alongside. I’ve been lucky to work with a lot of actors who inspire me in so many ways.

Institute: What has been a stand-out out moment in your career so far?

Mary Elizabeth Winstead: I’ve had a few that have felt like personal milestones for me, but I think the film that still stands out for people is Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World. I feel proud to be known as “Ramona Flowers” to the fans of that film. It’s gained quite a cult following over the past few years and I really hope it continues to grow. I’d be more than happy if that turns out to be the project I’m remembered for because it’s just such a great and completely unique film.

Pret-A-Porter caught up with Mary Elizabeth Winstead to talk about her new album, fashion and style. Check out some of the highlights below and then head to the gallery to check out the great, new pics!

We also see that you’ll be starring in the film Faults. How was working on that?

My husband (director Riley Stearns) and I worked on that film together. I’m so proud of it. He wrote and directed it. I’m in it and produced it as well. It was such a blast to make. We just know each other so well that it was so easy. He’s very, very specific in what he wants, which can be frustrating, sometimes, with directors who are specific and if you don’t understand their vision, that can be hard to get there, but because I know him so well, it was so exciting to know exactly what he had in his head and to execute that. It was really fun to go through that process together.

Sounds like you’re very much into vintage. How would you describe your personal style?

I’ve always been pretty feminine and retro. As I’m getting older, I’m starting to add a lot more elements of menswear and comfort, which maybe just a part of getting older. (Laughs.) I think on one hand, I’m starting to like to look a little more powerful so I like a lot of blazers and boots — things that I didn’t used to wear that I’m starting to venture toward like high-waist pants and suits. For a while there, I had nothing but dresses. I didn’t have any shirts or pants. It was just a closet full of ’50s to ’60s  silhouette dresses. I’ve always been a dress girl, and I think part of it has a lot to do with my body shape, which is suited for dresses that are fitted on the waist and then A-lined out so I’ve always been drawn to that because it’s flattering and I’ve always been more drawn to vintage styles. I’m beginning to own my figure more and I don’t mind myself in pants. I used to be like, ‘I don’t want to show my hips and butt.’ I was so self-conscious, but now I’m like whatever. I’ll even do pajama pants sometimes because you know, they’re not always so flattering, but it’s comfortable and cool.

What’s been your biggest summer splurge lately?

I am working in Vancouver right now and there’s a store called Gravity Pope. I’m working there for four months and I’m planning on going there once a month to splurge on something because it’s this amazing store that has all the best stuff. I got these great Rag & Bone boots there. I’ve been wanting them for a long time, so I was just, like, ‘I’m going to do it.’

How long will you be in Vancouver for and what’s the project you’re working on?

I’ll be shooting there until the beginning of October. It’s called The Return. It’s a 10-episode series from A&E that’s based on a French show. It’s kind of dark, moody and mysterious. It’s about a small town where all these people who have died there start coming back for no reason. They’re not ghosts, zombies or anything. They’re just there and nobody knows why. It’s about their relationships and the consequences of them coming back where they’re not supposed to come back. It’s a lot of good drama.

Hunger TV interviewed Mary about her debut album I Love You But I Must Drive Off This Cliff Now which will be released on July 22. Check out some highlights from the interview below and click on the link to read the full interview. I also added a higher quality pic of Mary and Dan which you can see in the gallery:

YOU AND DAN THE AUTOMATOR MET ON THE SET OF  SCOTT PILGRIM VS THE WORLD – WHAT DREW YOU TO SPARK UP CONVERSATION? 

I had been a fan of Dan’s for several years, so I was a bit intimidated. I was completely obsessed with Lovage and had been a follower of all his projects. We were at a group dinner, and didn’t say anything until we were all leaving, at which point I walked up and told him I was a big fan, and whisked myself away. We didn’t see each other again until a year later at the film’s premiere. That’s when Dan approached me about potentially working together, which I was certainly not expecting.

YOUR ALBUM TITLE, I LOVE YOU BUT I MUST DRIVE OFF THIS CLIFF NOW, IS PROBABLY THE BEST ALBUM TITLE I’VE HEARD IN A LONG TIME – WHERE DID IT COME FROM? 

Thank you! It started as a joke between Dan and I. We were writing a song and laughing about how melancholy the lyrics were, and sort of making fun of ourselves. So that became a joke about the album and that just stuck. And I’m glad, I love it.

YOU SEEM TO HAVE MOVED SEAMLESSLY FROM AN ACTING TO SINGING CAREER – WAS THERE EVER A POINT WITH DAN THE AUTOMATOR WHEN YOU FELT THE IMMENSE PRESSURE OF HIS PRIOR MUSICAL SUCCESS AS YOU WERE JUST STARTING OUT? 

The way we made this album was so low pressure, so low key. We never really had a plan of how we were going to release it or if we were even going to release it! I always trusted that Dan would only keep going if he felt the music was good, and that really calmed any fears I had previously about how I would be perceived. If we like it, that’s what matters. And hopefully other people will as well.

ON YOUR WEBSITE YOU SEEM TO BE GEARING UP TO LAUNCH A RANGE OF WINE, PERFUME, BUBBLE BATH AND EVEN OLIVE OIL. ARE YOU LOOKING FOR PEOPLE TO RECREATE THEIR OWN GOT A GIRL LIFESTYLE?

Yes! Dan and I see this project as a bit of a meeting of the minds between the two of us. Bringing all of our likes and interests together. So we’ve worked with some really interesting people to create some small batch, hand made products. We’re sort of holding up this lifestyle but also taking the piss out of it.  It’s sort of ridiculous for us to have our own olive oil, but that’s what’s fun about it.
