Talulah Riley featured in Esquire Magazine's March Issue

Talulah Riley (aka Mary Bennet of P&P 05 film) will be in the upcoming March issue of Esquire Magazine! Daily Star has a preview of Talulah's sexy and all grown up photo shoots and article, which you can read excerpts below...

GORGEOUS Talulah Riley is swapping the St Trinian’s schoolyard for the bright lights of Hollywood.

Talulah Riley, who played head girl Annabelle in St Trinian’s 2: The Legend Of Fritton’s Gold, has landed her first Tinseltown role.

The 24-year-old proved she’s all grown up with a raunchy photoshoot and high-profile role opposite screen hunk Leonardo DiCaprio, 35.

Talulah plays a blonde babe in sci-fi thriller Inception, which also stars Michael Caine, 76, and Cillian Murphy, 33.

But the move to LA means she’s had to give up some of her home comforts.

“Inception was fun to do,” says Talulah. “It was very different to St Trinian’s.

“The only thing is that I live in LA now and I’m bereft of all English people.

“I miss cheddar cheese so much – it’s all plastic and rubbish out here.” Talulah started acting when she was 18 and growing up in Hertfordshire.

She went to acting classes every Saturday and tried to win the occasional role as an extra.

Talent scouts spotted her and she scooped the part of prim Mary Bennet in the hit 2005 film Pride And Prejudice with Keira Knightley, 24.

She says: “As a child I loved reading. All my favourite books became BBC costume dramas, and so I thought: ‘This is the way to be inside a book.'”

Talulah followed that up with roles in the first St Trinian’s film and 60s caper The Boat That Rocked. Then came last year’s naughty school-girl sequel alongside Sarah Harding, 28, Rupert Everett, 50, and her old heart-throb, Colin Firth, 49.

He starred as Darcy in the 1995 TV adaptation of Pride And Prejudice. Talulah says: “When I was 10, I was madly in love with Darcy. And then I got to act with him! He’s gorgeous.
“We had an amazing time making St Trinian’s.



“I hate watching myself on film because I am so judgmental. But this time it was like watching a home video of your mates larking around. St Trinian’s is a British institution.

“People worry about the message because it makes anarchy and disorder appealing, but it’s tempered with female friendship.

“I like the sort of girl power aspect, it’s very English. I get recognised by 12-year-old girls and 45-year-old men.
“Those are the two demographics.”
But acting’s not always been a walk in the park for the sexy star – and there’s one audition in particular she’s desperate to forget.
“I actually did something terrible,” she giggles. “I’m still a bit scared of flying but it used to terrify me. I had to fly back home to go to an audition on my own and I was so frightened on the plane that I took four tranquillisers that I had with me.

“I was still scared and I kept passing in and out of consciousness. The guy sitting next to me alerted the air stewardess so she took me to the front of the plane and sat with me. Then as soon as we were on the ground, I just collapsed and fell asleep.

“I still went to my audition, and I can’t remember it very well. I was very sleepy all the way through.

“I think I really embarrassed myself. I think I bowed to the director.

“It was a learning experience. Don’t go to an audition straight after getting off a plane and don’t take four tranquillisers on the way.”

Talulah’s next role will be as bride – to her multi-millionaire businessman fiancé Elon Musk, 38.
But she’s not planning any saucy St Trinian’s antics at her hen do.

“Oh no – it is going to be gentle,” Talulah laughs. “My mum will be there so we definitely won’t be having a St Trinian’s riot.”

The full interview appears in the March issue of Esquire, on sale now. Inception is out later this year.
