ELLE US November Oct 18

Liana is featured in the November issue of ELLE magazine in the United States, alongside Britt Robertson, Tessa Thompson, and Melissa Benoist in a featured titled Discovery Zone! She looks gorgeous as ever in Hugo Boss, with an absolutely beautiful bow brooch by De Beers. Check out the scan in the gallery now! I’ve also finally gotten around to scanning Teen Vogue (September) and an HQ version of Vanity Fair (July).

On a final note, I am seeing many new fan pages and blogs popping up for Liana, and while this is absolutely amazing and exciting to see, I’m also seeing an increasing number of these pages using images from Loving Liana and other sources without proper credit. It is important to remember that I and others spend a lot of time, and our own money, to bring magazine scans and press images to you, and it is very discouraging when that goes uncredited. As a courtesy to us for our hard work, it would be very much appreciated if you would credit when you use the images you find on Loving Liana or any other site/blog. Thank you very much!

Apple Store Soho Visit; Out & About in NYC Oct 18

As was previously posted, the cast of The Best of Me and Nicholas Sparks appeared at the Apple Store Soho for a Q&A session about the film. Pictures from that were added to the gallery yesterday afternoon. =) To go along with that, I’ve added new candids of Liana leaving the Today Show and then arriving at the Apple Store later in the day Thursday. A press junket for The Best of Me was held at a hotel in LA on October 6th; I’ve finally added a couple photos from that, though one of the photos has an unfortunate tag. Still, you can follow the thumbnails below to see all the latest additions!

Just Jared Spotlight Series Oct 16

Just Jared has just released on their website, the latest in their Spotlight Series, and it is our very own Liana who takes the spotlight this time! The JJ Spotlight Series has previously featured actors like Alexander Ludwig (The Hunger Games) and Lucy Hale (Pretty Little Liars). The shoot that comes along with the great interview is probably my absolute favorite of Liana so far! You can read an excerpt of the interview, in which she discusses The Best of Me, favorite set moments, and even lets us know a bit of what happening with Dear Eleanor (set for release early next year, yay!), below or at the link above, and see the stunning shoot in the gallery now!

Liana Liberato brings her beauty A-game in this exclusive new pic from the latest edition of the Just Jared Spotlight Series.

The 19-year-old stunner stars in new movie The Best of Me, which is based on the novel by reigning romance author Nicholas Sparks.

The film is about a pair of former high school sweethearts who reunite after many years when they return to visit their small hometown. Liana plays the younger version of the female lead, played by Michelle Monaghan in the present day. Check it out in theaters this weekend!

Liana has previously appeared in such movies as If I Stay and Stuck in Love. She will next be seen in the family drama Dear Eleanor, set for release in 2015.

For our exclusive shoot, we dressed Liana in some stunning fall fashion including runway looks by Marc Jacobs, Carolina Herrera, Dolce&Gabbana, Tory Burch, and Tanya Taylor.

In our interview, Liana tells us how her first love relates to her character in the movie, how her parents picked out her name, and why she’s always suggesting pal Patrick Schwarzenegger for roles.

Liana Liberato Interview – JustJared.com Exclusive

Just Jared: Congratulations on The Best of Me! This movie might alter the course for many young viewers. What movie did that for you as a kid?

LL: Two movies really affected me when it comes to my career… I grew up religiously watching The Sound of Music. I just recently watched it and it blew my mind because I realized exactly what it was about. It wasn’t all just music and fun. It actually had a really good story to it. More recently, I’ve been watching a lot of Michelle Williams’ work. My Week with Marilyn and Blue Valentine–those type of movies are the type of movies I want to do in my career.

JJ: Do you have a musical background?

LL: Yeah, actually! That’s kind of how I discovered acting. I was put into theater when I was three and continued until I moved out to L.A. I haven’t really done theater since, but I did musical theater and regular kind of plays, so that’s what gave me that acting bug to begin with. When I moved out to L.A. I haven’t done it since, but actually I’d love to get back to the theater.

JJ: What was your first role in a play that you remember?

LL: When I was in the local theater, they’d just bring the kids on stage. Especially when I was three, to do little musical numbers and whatnot. But, I remember being one of those pickpocketers in Oliver. I remember doing that and I remember so badly wanting the part for Oliver, but in the audition they said whoever got the part had to cut their hair and I was like, ‘No way. I’m not doing that.’ Of course, times have changed now, but back then apparently that was important to me.

JJ: How would you relate your The Best of Me character Amanda’s first love to your own first love? Was it as romantic, was it not as?

LL: I would say it was just as impacting, but I’d say that no true love is ever the same. That’s kind of something that I’ve learned. But I think that the way Amanda falls in love, she just dives in and goes full force and that’s kind of the same way I’ve loved people. I think that also puts your heart on the line a little bit because of you do get let down, you get really burned. So yeah, that’s one thing I kind of had in common with Amanda. When it comes to any situation in love, I just dive in and completely devote myself to it.

JJ: Do you remember having a favorite prop from set?

LL: I had a necklace I always wore and that was something that ended up being like a mannerism for me. It was something I instinctually went to every time my character was in some sort of stressful or strenuous situation. My mind would always go to this nervous movement of moving my necklace around all the time–more of a comfort prop for me.
