Emile Hirsch for FAULT Issue 16

Emile Hirsch for FAULT Issue 16 (1)

Emile Hirsch was shot by Dove Shore and styled by Ashley Weston exclusively for FAULT Issue 16

He’s best known for his role as a daredevil wanderer in Into the Wild, but Emile Hirsch has an exciting new project coming out which is sure to earn him a second
spotlight. The California-born actor talks to FAULT about playing a Navy SEAL in the upcoming film Lone Survivor, his penchant for telling people off and why he loves to tackle such diverse and challenging roles.

FAULT: How do you select your roles, because they have certainly been quite diverse?

Emile: They just send me scripts, and I go for roles that I think I can pull off. I don’t necessarily have a ‘type’—I kind of like switching it up. As a person, I’ll go from being serious to being goofy; I have a varying personality of my own that lends itself to a greater range of roles. Some guys I know are straight-up, serious dudes who would never be seen in a comedy. I like to joke around, but I also really like to be straightforward [and] dramatic.

From what we’ve read, you seem quite outdoors-y—you even climbed Mount Kilimanjaro to raise awareness for clean water. Did that have anything to do with your role in Into the Wild?

I was always physical; I was a skateboarder when I was younger. But Into the Wild took exercise to a whole new level, and ever since then, I’ve definitely been more conscious about physical fitness. I go to the gym all the time now, and I like to run. I would have been much more sluggish had I not done that movie.

What has been your most challenging role to date?

The preparation for Lone Survivor was particularly difficult; it felt like boot camp. The programme was designed to push you to your limits until I wanted to quit. They put
you in a mentality where surrender is not an option—it was really challenging.

What is your FAULT?

I think sometimes my FAULT is that I’m a bit lazy and I need structure. When I’m working, I’m really focused, but so often as an actor you’re not working and have months off with endless time go to do whatever. My biggest FAULT is not being a master of organising my free time.

‘The Face’: FAULT Exclusive fashion film to accompany Issue 16’s ‘Decades’ editorial

‘The Face’ is a trio of fashion short films designed to explore the uncertainty within one’s sense of self in a contemporary consumerist society.  Each short presents ‘Faces’ of the past, with specific reference to the 1960s, 70s and 80s, to demonstrate how fashion often harks back to bygone ‘Decades’ in an effort to attain an element of stability and clear identity through hindsight.

The tension and unease which eventually comes through in each short is meant to reflect the ever-present uncertainty within our individual and societal identities in the face of our rapidly evolving environment. The individual identity clashes with that of the era; the ego goes against the epitome; the personal against the group. Even in our most mundane moments, that conflict can rise to the surface…

 ‘Decades‘, the corresponding fashion editorial shot by Louie Banks, can be seen in full in FAULT Issue 16. ‘The Face’ was directed by Jacob Harmer, with styling and creative direction by Sophie Gaten.

sasha grey for FAULT Issue 16

Sasha Grey was shot by Giuliano Bekor and styled by Luke Storey exclusively for FAULT Issue 16

At the age of 18, Sasha Grey moved to Los Angeles with a solid plan to make it in the entertainment world, but her goal wasn’t your typical Hollywood Dream. Sasha had her sights set on the adult entertainment industry. She became an instant superstar and was heralded as the next Jenna Jameson. By age 21, Sasha decided to retire from the industry, wanting instead to focus fully on developing a career outside the world of pornography.

She successfully made the transition to mainstream acting by securing the lead role in Steven Soderbergh’s The Girlfriend Experience, followed by roles on shows such as Entourage and the independent films Quit, The Girl From the Naked Eye and the soon-to-be-released Open Windows. Sasha recently released her first novel, The Juliette Society, which was a number-one bestseller in the U.K. FAULT had the pleasure of spending the day with the multi-talented actress, which resulted in one of our favourite shoots to date. We found out why she decided to turn to writing and where she got her inspiration for her book from. Pushing boundaries and challenging perceptions is something we find FAULTless!

FAULT: You’ve been in the entertainment world since 2006 and have dealt with the world of fantasy and celebrity. Is any of that fictional world—the secret society, etc.—based on or inspired by your own personal experiences?

Sasha: Of course a secret society like this one isn’t that far off-base!

The novel is fiction, but some of my fans will recognise the erotic scenes as scenes I actually did. I’m also lucky enough to have travelled the world and met so many  ascinating people whose stories I pulled from. Most of all, I wanted this book to be an homage to classic erotica like Candide, 120 Days of Sodom and Therese the Philosopher.

Those novels were satirical and a reflection of the authors’ time, and I hoped to do a bit of the same. There isn’t a day that goes by where we don’t hear about a sex scandal or the mysterious death of a beautiful young woman, and there are a lot of stories that aren’t front page news but can be found with just a little bit of research.

Words by Leah Blewitt

What did you learn about yourself in the process of writing your novel?

Good writing and good sex have one thing in common: You need to hit a good rhythm. You need to know when to slow down, when to draw things out and tease the reader, and also when to pick up the pace and hit them with everything you’ve got.

 

What do you want readers—especially your female readership—to take away from the book?

I didn’t set out with the intention of sending a message or hoping to create change. However, if people find themselves questioning themselves or questioning society, I will wear that badge with a sense of pride. That’s all I can ever hope for.

De Sade wanted to get rid of the way we categorise sexuality. He wanted to stop labelling our sexual preferences as necessarily good or bad. I almost agree with that. I think sex between consenting adults is either consensual or it isn’t. So if someone didn’t consent to sex . . . then that’s where I have to draw the line.

What is your FAULT?

Cinema. If I don’t watch enough films in a week I start to get anxious. Suffice it to say that I’ve been rife with anxiety lately!

At the bright young age of 21, Charli XCX has already released a top-selling album, had a number-one single, played stadium gigs around the globe and written a song
for Britney Spears. The self-confessed Essex Girl has an exciting year ahead of her: She’ll be touring with Paramore and finishing up her new album, among many other things. Charli spoke to FAULT about her ambitious career, the philosophy behind her music and why she’s all for people getting her music for free!

FAULT: Tell us a bit about the album you’re currently working on. How is it different from your first album?

Charli XCX: I see this whole second record as being the colour red. I always see my music in colours. True Romance, my first record, was purple, whereas this album is going to be red. I’m inspired visually by red lips, Chanel blazers and things that blow up!…It’s going to be much more alive than True Romance. I want to record it all in a really short space of time, because I took so long to record the first one. I just want to push this one out and really work on it fast and catch this moment in time.

Charli’s feature inside FAULT Issue 16 – entitled ‘Cat-Eyed Queen’. Words by Rebecca Unger.

What’s an average day like in the life of Charli XCX?

Write some music. I have to colour-code everything when I write stuff, so there’s lots of colouring in. Also, I don’t know why—I’ve always been obsessed with the movie  Clueless— but I feel like, recently, maybe it’s because it’s outfits and dressing up in my room. That’s become a frequent thing in my life. It’s like one of those awful wardrobe scenes from every chick flick! That’s what my bedroom is like at the moment: an explosion of ’90s wonderfashion! I feel like Cher Horowitz.

What would your advice to young people starting out in the industry be?

I’d say don’t listen to my advice and just do your own thing. That’s how the best music and artists are created: when they don’t have all of this weird insider knowledge about everything and are just naïvely making something beautiful and amazing.

What is your FAULT?

I apologise for everything. Maybe it’s a really British thing to do, because I feel like I get told off for it a lot whenever I’m in America.

Interview by Leah Blewitt

Your album dropped just recently and you’ve collaborated and worked with so many amazing artist including Ne-Yo. How did that come about?

It was really an incredible experience and working with Ne-Yo was amazing. He gave me so much great advice and he is just so talented. He even wrote me a song in half an hour called ‘Plastic Roses’, which is on the album.

Looks like you had an absolutely amazing time on Glee. That must have been such an incredible experience.

… Being on Glee was such an amazing experience… They where beyond amazing to me. They really truly as a cast are very close and like family to each other.

The Jonas Brothers – FAULT Issue 16 reversible cover stars

We are thrilled to announce that FAULT Issue 16 will be released with a fully reversible cover featuring The Jonas Brothers. Our Illuminate Issue (Fall ’13) features Lake Bell as our front cover star, the Jonas Brothers on the reversible back cover (and internal Men’s section cover) and internal section covers with Jessica Sanchez (Beauty), Caroline Flack (Style) and Charli XCX (Music).

FAULT Issue 16 - Jonas Brothers reversible cover (web)

The Jonas Brothers were shot in New York by photographer Udo Spreitzenbarth and styled by Avo Yermagyan – exclusively for FAULT Issue 16.
The emphatic lighting effect throughout the shoot reflects the theme of the issue: Illuminate.

From Disney stars to pop icons, the Jonas Brothers – both together and apart – have forged incredible careers in music, theatre and television. At only 20, 24 and 25 Nick, Joe and Kevin have reunited for a world tour promoting their new album, V. FAULT dropped in on their New York/New Jersey leg for what turned out to be a bit of an adventure…

FAULT: What can we expect from your new album, V?

Nick: It’s definitely different than our previous releases. There’s a lot of growth in the music. I had the pleasure of producing as well, which was fun for me.

Interview by Rebecca Unger

What’s it like being back on tour?

Nick: It’s incredible. I think each one of us, though-with the break and the time off- have a newfound appreciation for our own beds and home but it’s been incredible to be on the road again and playing music.

Do you work best as a team. or do you all prefer doing your own things?

Joe: We always have passion projects that might be individual but, at the end of the day working together is something that we really love.

Caroline Flack is our Style section cover for FAULT Issue 16

cflack_style_cover_web (Medium)

Caroline Flack was shot by Annick Wolfers and styled by Marika Page at Studio Gi for FAULT Issue 16‘s Style section cover.

From the rising stars of the X Factor to fading celebs of the jungle, Caroline Flack has worked alongside some of the best of prime time TV. Although she says she would have been at home in musical theatre, Caroline kicked off her career with the infamous Bo Selecta, before presenting on E4 Music. Now into her third series of the Xtra Factor, Caroline has branched out from the small screen: she’s the new face of Sure’s latest advertising campaign and she’s also graced the cover of Maxim magazine. But for now she’s focused on her TV, and working with her ‘geeky’ new co-host Matt Richardson.

FAULT: People just love you and Olly [Murs]. What is it about you two in a room together?!

People are obsessed with us being together. Even my Mum. “Aw, will you marry Olly? Please!” I don’t want to marry him. No. We’ve said that if we get to forty we’ve got that whole best friends’ wedding thing going on. It’s a bit weird though isn’t it? Just so unromantic. ‘Ah, by the way I’m forty now and err, and we said we’d do this thing so let’s do it.’

Interview by Tom Witherow

What advice would you give a younger you?

Take every job you can get. I did. But then I had to because I had to make a living. I think some people are like, I don’t want to do this and I don’t want to do that. I only want to do music shows. Well, there’s only ever going to be… In fact there isn’t even a music show on at the moment apart from MTV! I think you’ve got to learn your trade and earn your stripes. Like any job really, experience is essential. Especially when you do shows like X Factor. If I’d done this when I was 23/24 I probably wouldn’t still have my job now. You learn so much as you go along from different people, from different producers, from different shows. Live tele is hard!

What’s your worst live television disaster?

When I did I’m a Celebrity, there was this one episode when everyone was looking at me really weirdly. At the end of the show I asked what was going on, and they were like, there was a huge snake above your head and none of us wanted to mention it because we knew you would freak out. So for the whole last half there was this snake that was ready to pounce on me. I could have died and they didn’t care!
