GLAMOUR — She’s only 22, but Zoey Deutch has already racked up 15 films (Vampire Academy, Everybody Wants Some!!, Before I Fall among them) to cement her status as one of Hollywood’s rising stars. But that only tells half the story: She’s also a producer, activist, and fashion’s newest one to watch, largely thanks to Max Mara. The Italian label chose her as its 2017 Women in Film Face of the Future award recipient.

Even before Max Mara was toasting Deutch in Los Angeles, though, the multi-hyphenate was featured as part of Net-a-Porter’s 2017 Women in Hollywood shoot for The Edit, had a few Met Galas under her belt, and was already fluent in the fashion-show-front-row squad pose. More crucially, though, she understood the transformative role that style can have on a person. “The most important thing about fashion is that it’s a form of expression,” Deutch told Glamour at the Face of the Future reception thrown in her honor. “It means every single day is different. At an event like this, I not only want to feel beautiful, I want to feel powerful. The right outfit is like a suit of armor and makes you walk differently, talk differently, move differently. I think that’s a real gift, and I feel like that in this [outfit]!”

In a moment of true candor, Deutch then admitted that even though she might look like the epitome of cool in her red velvet blazer over a bandeau top of the same material, “I’m sweating and now my coat’s off and I’m half-naked here!”

Still, the actress knows that being one’s authentic self beats maintaining an exhausting image of looking like you’ve got it all together. “The best pictures are when you have life and personality,” she explained. “[Red carpets] can be so scary and constraining that it [ends up having] the opposite effect, so it’s about tricking yourself into not being scared and [transforming] that into being confident and alive.”

Throughout her career, we’ve seen Deutch photographed in brands like Miu Miu, Rodarte, Alexander McQueen, and, of course, Max Mara. When it comes to her day-to-day style, though, you’re more likely to spot her wearing “high-waisted vintage Levi’s, some really old Converse, and a white short-sleeve shirt.” As a public figure, though, she’s very aware of the power of aligning oneself with strong female designers. “To me, that’s especially meaningful because I am from a family of women in film,” she told Glamour. “My mother [Lea Thompson] is a director and actor, and my sister is a writer and actor. And to get the support of Max Mara is [amazing because] they’re all about empowering and supporting women in the art and film world.” We can’t wait to see more of that.

The Year of Spectacular Men will have its screening tonight at LA Film Festival and ahead of the premiere, The Hollywood Reporter has released an exclusive clip from the movie which features Zoey Deutch, Madelyn Deutch and Avan Jogia. You can watch the video bellow, plus read an interview given by Lea Thompson, the director, on the movie!

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER — The Year of Spectacular Men is quite the family affair. Lea Thompson makes her feature directorial debut with the romantic comedy, produced by husband Howard Deutch. Their daughter Madelyn Deutch wrote, scored and stars in the film as Izzy, a recent college grad who attempts to find her way through her quarter-life crisis by dating five complicated men. She does so with practical guidance from her movie star sibling Sabrina (real-life sister Zoey Deutch, who also produced), as seen in The Hollywood Reporter’s exclusive clip.

“I am so ecstatic that The Year of Spectacular Men is finally going to be on the big screen for an audience, after four years of development, production and post,” Thompson tells THR. “Making an independent film from the ground up is an immense undertaking, but every hard-earned moment was made so much richer by the fact that I got to collaborate with my daughters.”

Ahead of the world premiere of The Year of Spectacular Men at the Los Angeles Film Festival, Thompson tells THR of directing her daughters, learning from those who’ve helmed her movies and watching these “spectacular men” make out with her kin.

What’s your directorial style?

It was really important to find the best visual style to tell the story in the most economic way. I was inspired by Woody Allen’s early work, especially Annie Hall. Since the film has a self-aware and self-deprecating romantic sensibility, I think it lent itself to that visual palette. I was also heavily influenced by John Hughes’ coming-of-age movies from the early ‘80s, including my husband’s movies Some Kind of Wonderful and Pretty in Pink.

What lesson from another director you’ve worked with was most helpful?

I’ve always been in awe of Robert Zemeckis. Even when I was making the Back to the Future movies when I was 23, I appreciated his respect for the audience and his ability to pack so much story into every shot. If something did not further the story or the character, it had to go. As a director, that kind of discipline is something I aspire to have.

INSTYLE — “You should be really grateful you’re not catching me when I’ve had a full night of sleep,” Zoey Deutch says, by way of introduction. “Because you would be so exhausted!”

Due to her electric personality and machine-gun diction, the 22-year-old actress is often called a spark plug, but it might be more accurate to describe her as a nuclear reactor. Wrapped in an oversize camel coat from Max Mara at Milan’s Mandarin Oriental hotel shortly after attending the label’s fall runway show, she bounces between the topics of fashion, film, family, and even her irrational fears (don’t get her started on revolving doors) with an impressive exuberance. “When people tell me I have a lot of energy, I usually feel bad for them, but then they only have to spend a certain amount of time with me,” Deutch says wryly. “I have to be with me all the time.”

In fact, her enthusiasm is infectious, which helps explain why Deutch has managed to vault from Vampire Academy and Disney tween fare to the forefront of the millennial generation in Hollywood after a handful of eclectic yet well-received performances, notably in Richard Linklater’s 2016 teen romp Everybody Wants Some!! and the young-adult yarn Before I Fall. And she will appear in several daring roles coming this year, including that of the wild-spirited Oona O’Neill during her 1940s romance with J.D. Salinger in Rebel in the Rye.

But it is Deutch’s commitment to speaking up for social causes at a young age that inspired Women in Film, which promotes equal opportunities in the media industry, to name her its 2017 Max Mara Face of the Future Award winner. “I’m so involved in women’s activism and rights that it feels very fitting to be aligned with a brand that celebrates women in film and art,” says Deutch, who began campaigning on behalf of Planned Parenthood two years ago after reading about congressional efforts to defund the nonprofit. And with her family (her mother is the actress Lea Thompson, her father the director Howard Deutch) she has worked for more than a decade with Corazón de Vida, which supports orphanages in Baja, Mexico. “It’s nice to be part of a generation that is taking more of a vocal stance,” Deutch says. “I don’t think silence makes you safe.”

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER — Riding a Wonder Woman high, the Women in Film cocktail party celebrating Face of the Future Zoey Deutch on Tuesday night at the Chateau Marmont was an upbeat affair.

“If I had a superhero movie like that when I was a kid, I would have walked down the street and thought, ‘I can do anything!,’” said Deutch, 22, dressed in a red velvet bra top and pantsuit by Max Mara, sponsor of the party as well as the night’s annual Women in Film gala.

Director Patty Jenkins is undoubtedly Hollywood’s new superhero, having scored the best box-office opening weekend by a female helmer ever. But Deutch is no slouch, either.

“To be honored by Women in Film is really special, because I come from a family of women in film,” she said, noting that her mother Lea Thompson is an actor and director, and her sister Madelyn is a writer and actor.

Thompson, who also was at the party, directed her two daughters in the upcoming The Year of Spectacular Men, which is set to premiere at the Los Angeles Film Festival. Deutch also appears in this fall’s Rebel in the Rye and the upcoming Flower, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival, and she currently is shooting Set It Up in New York.

Deutch is also becoming a bit of a fashion plate (the bra top, she admits, was a daring choice). “My style is dependent on my mood. I don’t want to just feel beautiful, I want to feel powerful and ready,” said the actress. “[Fashion] can make you walk differently, talk differently, hold your head differently, and that can be a real gift. That’s what I seek out when I’m trying to find an outfit for an event like this, which feels like my second bat mitzvah,” she said, popping up from a couch to greet friends.

002.jpgTORY BURCH — We can’t get enough of Zoey Deutch around these parts. Tory Daily last spoke to the actress at the Met Gala (read the interview here) and, now, she’s opening up about a more pressing matter at hand: summer plans. Wearing Tory’s Stephanie tunic, she talks to us about her warm-weather getaways, beach reads and bohemian icons.

I love a great tunic because…
It’s both comfortable and chic (plus I can eat whatever I want in it and not worry). What more could a girl ask for?

My tip to styling a tunic…
I easily ruin fine jewelry when I’m not at a beach or in the ocean, so that trend of pairing delicate pieces with tunics is definitely lost on me. So instead of fine/thin bracelets or necklaces, I like a few big chunky vintage turquoise rings that I got at estate sales. Especially when it’s a high quality tunic, I like to add something different to it — mix high with low.

And my tip to make a splash with your summer style…
I am loving big (but thin) silver hoops right now. When I’m feeling lazy or don’t know how to make a boring look work, it helps tie things together and make it more fun. P.S. Also, important to note, I’m obsessed with JLO and she’s been wearing them for ages, so they must be cool. Right?

My summer getaway…
The beach on the East Coast. I’ve been going to the same spot every summer of my life since I was born, and have known all of my friends there since we were little kids. It’s so special and I cherish that experience and oasis so much. There are no cars, only bikes, boardwalks not roads, and no one wears shoes.

And what I love to do there…
We eat, swim, sleep, repeat (and maybe add some wine in there). There are few things I love more or that make me happier than swimming in the ocean.

Zoey is one of The Edit’s Hollywood Heroines of 2017, along with Patty Jenkins, Kimberly Steward, Sofia Boutella, and Sasha Lane. The issue came out today and we’ve added to our gallery outtakes and digital scans from the issue! You can watch an interview published by the magazine bellow, along with Zoey’s magazine interview transcript!

YOU JUST MADE A FILM WITH YOUR MOM AND YOUR SISTER.
I did. My sister Madelyn wrote The Year of Spectacular Men and starred in it, I co-star, my mom directed, my dad produced. It was about as personal as you can get.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE HOLLYWOOD?
There’s a real opportunity to make change in the world through Hollywood. But it’s a mixture of art and commerce, and it’s confusing when you’re telling artists to be business people and you’re telling business people to be artists. I want to always be an artist first.

ARE TRADITIONAL HOLLYWOOD HIERARCHIES CHANGING?
Yes, but I fear trend – trends go away. This needs to be our reality. Look at the past; look at Katharine Hepburn in Bringing up Baby and Stage Door. They’re great stories, written for women, that are strong, funny and complex – and we’re talking about it like it’s the first time in history. It can’t just be a moment in time.

WHAT’S THE BIGGEST CAREER LESSON YOU’VE LEARNED?
My mother told me that being jealous of other actors is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die. You might have insecure moments, but being jealous of others is pointless.

WHAT’S BEEN YOUR MOST ‘HOLLYWOOD’ MOMENT SO FAR?
I got a text from Robert De Niro: ‘How’s it going Zo, can’t wait to see you at Tribeca [Film Festival].’ I literally dropped my phone.

WHAT’S BEEN YOUR GREATEST LIFE LESSON?
That what other people think about me is none of my business.

WHAT DO YOU WANT YOUR IMDB BIO TO SAY IN 20 YEARS’ TIME?
I don’t want to be considered [just] a comedic actor, or a dramatic actor… I’d like to do it all.

Rebel in the Rye is out this fall; The Year of Spectacular Men is out Nov
