Mia is a cover girl again! This time she’s on the cover of September issue of Elle Canada. You can find cover of the magazine and first photos from the beautiful session in the gallery. Below you can read an interview with Mia.
Mia Wasikowska is quietly dunking her Earl Grey tea bag, still a little jet-lagged after her flight to New York from her native Australia. She has one arm folded protectively around her waist in a way that makes her seem as vulnerable as her doe-eyed character in Alice in Wonderland, her 2010 breakout film.
Unlike the brooding women Wasikowska has em-bodied on film—a tortured gymnast in In Treatment; Jane Eyre, opposite Michael Fassbender; the insouciant object of affection of real-life boyfriend Jesse Eisenberg in The Double—the actress has a stillness that is often broken by a childlike grin, like the sun peeking through clouds. The intriguing dichotomy of quiet wit and sudden warmth has helped Wasikowska, 24, carve out a niche as one of Hollywood’s most exciting rising stars. In David Cronenberg’s latest social satire, Maps to the Stars —which premiered to raves at Cannes and is poised to rule at the Toronto International Film Festival this month — Wasikowska plays a scarred pyromaniac who gets a gig as an assistant to an unhinged Hollywood star (Julianne Moore) and befriends a limo driver (Robert Pattinson). At the mention of the film, Wasikowska smiles. “I liked the idea of playing a perky psychopath.”
A perky psychopath is pretty unusual!
“I’ve played a lot of characters who were very emotional and troubled, so it was really nice to play someone who was serious but wasn’t, you know, weeping in every scene!”
What appeals to you about playing characters with imperfections?
“I don’t know anybody who had a straightforward adolescence—going to school, being popular, having a boyfriend—it seems so unrealistic. I think it’s more interesting to study things that aren’t so polished.”
What was your teenage experience like?
“I was pretty obsessed with ballet at the time. I expected high school to be social and great, and then I started doing ballet more full-time, so I was away a lot. I never found my social groove.”

This young Australian actress has made ‘Tracks’ to Wonderland, met ‘Jane Eyre’ and starred in films that are both ‘Restless’ and ‘Lawless’. She’s Hollywood up-and-comer Mia Wasikowska.
In 2011, the starlet hit the Cannes Film Festival to promote her film ‘Restless’, gracing several red carpets with her luminous presence. Joined by her co-star Henry Hopper, she shone softly in a nude colored Valentino gown with a dreamy flowing skirt. While at the release of their own film, she chose a breath-taking red Roland Mouret, keeping things simple to let the gorgeous gown speak for itself.
Back in the south of France the following year for the premiere of ‘Lawless’, Wasikowska styled her short hair into a braided bun, and glided down the carpet in a plum colored dress from J. Mendel. The look featured a plunging V-neck and draped sleeves with jewelry from Chopard.
And at the Venice Film Festival in 2013 for the opening of ‘Tracks’, Mia went glamorous in a big way, selecting a Nina Ricci black halter gown with a lace bodice and mermaid hem. She added the finishing touches with subtle diamond earrings, a relaxed up-do and bright red lips.
The always down-to-earth Mia Wasikowska likes to keep things simple yet stylish when it comes to her fashion choices, and we look forward to seeing her classy looks on many red carpets to come!
