from the editor

i love you. Yep, you. You right there. Whether this is the first issue of Cosmo you’ve bought, or the 500th. Whether you’re one of the millions who read Cosmopolitan.com/uk or follow us @CosmopolitanUK on social media. Whether you watch our YouTube videos or come to our events. Hi. You’re great. And I love you. Because reading, watching or following Cosmopolitan makes you part of our club. Except, unlike most clubs, you can totally wear trainers and falling asleep in the corner at 10pm is very much encouraged. Valentine’s Day felt like a good time to tell you how I feel about you. To tell you I really appreciate you. That I think you’re great. You’re funny. You’re clever. You’re not afraid to challenge the way you think, or debate important…

this month at cosmopolitan

Flower power Think being a fashion director is all about style? Amy had to crawl on the floor and throw roses around our cover star Lena Dunham for one of our shots. The glamour… Author extraordinaire! Features director Catriona wrote a book – and here she is posing with it (and, randomly, some homemade brownies) at the launch. Crown jewels Picture editor Jodie does her very best to take a disco nap on set… and fails miserably. Ever the professional, she still manages to get a good shot out of it. Selfie smiles Well, if Lena Dunham was nestling into your hair, wouldn’t you smile this widely? Acting entertainment director Nicola is one lucky lady. Act neutral You know what they say about couples who live together starting to look and dress alike? Well, the exact same thing applies…

harley quinn returns

Halloween might be eight months away, but dust off your costume because Margot Robbie is back as our favourite anti-heroine this month in Birds Of Prey. Told from Quinn’s perspective, it picks up with her revealing she’s finally broken free from Jared Leto’s Joker, her toxic love interest in 2016’s Suicide Squad. Spreading her message of emancipation to her all-new female crew, they come together to protect young girl Cassandra Cain (Ella Jay Basco) from crime lord Black Mask (Ewan McGregor). A thrilling comic book adventure and a story of women escaping toxic masculinity. Win-win.…

from soap star to superstar

THE WOLF OF WALL STREET (2014) Margot shot to fame as Leonardo DiCaprio’s on-screen wife, Naomi. Her killer performance, Brooklyn drawl and that nursery scene stole the critics’ (and our) hearts from the get-go. BIRDS OF PREY (2020) Our favourite baseball-bat-wielding delinquent – adorned with the obligatory post-break-up haircut – is back. Margot stars as Harley Quinn in her umpteenth lead role before the age of 30. Feeling inferior? Us? Never. BOMBSHELL (2020) Based on the true story of the female Fox News hosts who exposed the network’s CEO Roger Ailes for sexual harassment, Margot joins forces with Charlize Theron and Nicole Kidman in the film that perfectly captures the tone of the #MeToo movement. ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD (2019) In Quentin Tarantino’s ninth film, Margot returns to Leo’s side, playing real-life actress Sharon Tate,…

the only date you need this valentine’s day

“He writes me love letters all the time” eighteen months ago, Netflix dropped what could have been “just another teen romcom”. But by the end of 2018, To All The Boys I Loved Before had become one of the most re-watched original films of the year on the streaming service and is now one of its most-viewed original films ever. Star Lana Condor became an overnight sensation – as did her Instagram, which jumped from 100,000 followers to 7.7 million in a blink. Relationship goals Fans (read: we) went especially wild for the on-screen chemistry between Condor and love interest Noah Centineo’s characters. But if you think Lara Jean Covey and Peter Kavinsky’s relationship was goals, prepare to be floored by Condor’s IRL boyfriend, actor Anthony De La Torre. They locked eyes across…

ask me anything

If you ruled your own galaxy, what laws would you implement? I would abolish the word “hate” and it would be a nudist galaxy – all love and naked bodies. How do you take a brilliant selfie? I like to see how ugly I can make my face. I challenge myself to see how many chins I can have. But the key to a good selfie is the angle – high is always better – and the lighting. What’s the most surprising thing about Hollywood? It’s not that glamorous. It’s a lot of smoke and mirrors, and it’s harder than people think. Oh, and it can definitely get a little dull. Do aliens exist? I’m an alien so… who knows? I definitely think intelligent life forms exist elsewhere because there’s just so much space, but I don’t…
