Bosworth shows a whole new level of vulnerability and openness in the interview, talking for the first time about her struggles with depression and isolation, following her early brush with fame, and how going to therapy helped her overcome it.

“I don’t think I’d be where I am without her," Bosworth says of her guidance counselor. "She gave me a lot of important tools to understand the person I wanted to be, without the confusion of the bumps and bruises you get growing up. I didn’t go to college, so I was thrown into ‘Now you pay the rent, now you go to auditions, now you make an impression on the world,’ at 18.
“I was quite armored for a lot of years. I went through such a hard time (in my 20s). I felt like my experience was unique, when actually everyone goes through these challenges.”

"If I could impart advice [to young women], it would be to find mentors – as many as possible," Bosworth says. "I started too young and I had to white-knuckle it a little bit. I kept things too bottled up. I just put my head down and fought through it, and I wish I had sought more guidance."

“I don’t always get [to wear the samples] I’d like to, but I have an idea of what I’m attracted to every season," Bosworth says of working with fashion brands. "I get excited when [designers] I admire are showing because I want to see what they’re doing and support them. It’s important for me to feel proud to bring something out. I didn’t go to school for anything in the fashion world, all of this came about mainly from being around certain people I respect."
