Hells Yeah: Emily VanCamp Of ‘Revenge’ Does ‘GQ’ Magazine


OMG, this is the absolute best prep post for the Revenge recap that is sooo coming your way, lol! Emily VanCamp AKA Amanda (AKA ‘Emily’) from the show we all love and obsess over every Monday evening just got a sweet little spread in GQ. The actress talks life, lurve (as in her boyfriend and co-star Joshua Bowman), and the dreaded paparazzi in an interview with the men’s magazine. She also has some crazy, sexy, cool photos to go along with. Checkie out inside!


You guys HAVE to go to the GQ website to see the rest of the pics. They are so fun, you will love!

Here are a few excerpts from the interview:

GQ: You pull off the salty-sweet thing on Revenge really well. Which comes easier?
VanCamp: Yeah, I always feel like I’m playing a character when I’m in a beautiful dress, with my hair coiffed. I like getting down and dirty. It’s really fun. There’s nothing better than setting an asshole’s house on fire. It’s those moments when I think “I love my job!”

GQ: Would you consider yourself more of a tomboy, then?
VanCamp: Definitely. I did ballet, which taught me how to be poised and graceful, but still, to this day I’d rather be fishing than going to some glamorous party. It’s so therapeutic…

GQ: Where else have you vacationed recently?
VanCamp: Well, I went to Bora Bora and swam with sharks. Just reef sharks and lemon sharks.

GQ: That’s the most Canadian thing, to qualify the sharks you swam with. An American would have made that story so much more salacious. Do you consider yourself a good liar?
VanCamp: [Laughs] I think anyone who says they don’t tell little white lies at all is a liar. We all have that occasional event or engagement that we don’t really want to go to. I don’t think I’m a good liar at all, though. The people who know me best will tell you that. I think you’ll see a little more honesty out of my character on Revenge this season though.

GQ: Does it surprise you how many guys are into the show, given the fact it’s a nighttime soap that takes place in one of the bougiest zip codes in America?
VanCamp: At first I thought the show was going to be so female-oriented. I think it’s one of those shows that the girlfriend turns on and the guy ends up liking more though. I’ve had so many lovely encounters with guy fans. Then you have the crazy ones, too—the ones that come up to you on the street and don’t realize you aren’t your character.

GQ: Speaking of the streets, you constantly get photographed by paparazzi. And, I gotta say, I seriously commend you because you are not afraid in the slightest of a little PDA. There is a literal motherload of photos where you are sucking face with your co-star boyfriend, Josh Bowman.
VanCamp: [Laughs] I don’t really ever talk about that part of my life, but I’m also not going to stop living my life. I want to live happily. And if I love a person, I’m not going to be ashamed and hide it.

GQ: It must get frustrating being followed by cameras constantly.
VanCamp: The thing is, I never know when paparazzi are taking pictures! They hide in weird places and make it look like you can see them but you can’t. It’s just so odd. I don’t have any respect for them. Sometimes I just want to go for a walk in my sweats, you know?

GQ: Does it make you miss Canada?
VanCamp: Yeah, I miss it a lot. It’s so quaint, and there’s never some weird person hiding in the bushes in my hometown. I could see myself moving back. It’s just so mellow.

Read more here. Emily talks more about life in Canada and zombies, because she’s hella into The Walking Dead, lol.

OMG. I’m still not over this spread! That. Was. Awesome. And how sexy are these pics?! I’m sooo glad Terry Richardson didn’t take them, lmao! Kenneth Cappello actually did the shoot, and he sounds like a stand-up guy… so there.

Honestly? I cannot believe our girl just became a sex symbol, lol. I don’t know how I feel about that– I just don’t want ANYONE disrespecting her, ya know? But as long as she keeps making all the right moves on screen, I’m sure she’ll be fine. Aghhh! Love this girl! How’d you guys like the shoot/interview? Are you ready for the [forthcoming] recap to end all recaps???!!!!???
