Pieces of Kate
Yes, we know she's a movie star. And yes, we know she's a fashion icon. But beer-drinking party girl? Practical joker? We asked friends and colleagues on two new projects, The Girl in the Park and 21, to show us the real Kate Bosworth.

ON DOWNTIME WHILE MAKING 21
"Kate Bosworth can drink anyone under the table. Get a couple in her, and she's definitely a very fun and crazy girl. We went out to a pub on St. Patrick's Day. Not only did she pick the place, but she picked the rowdiest place, where everybody and their mother came. And it's like, 'Okay, she's one of us! Let's get shit-faced!' But Kate is always one step ahead of you. She had a blast, and everybody was just enamored of the fact that there's a superstar singing and dancing and going nuts. But she was also the first one to be like, 'Okay, I'm out of here.'" JOSH GAD, COSTAR, 21
ON THE GIRL IN THE PARK
"Maybe Kate's slightly insecure because she doesn't have the training. But she didn't need it. I could've just as easily been asking her for advice." SIGOURNEY WEAVER, COSTAR, THE GIRL IN THE PARK
ON PRACTICAL JOKES
"I was at lunch. And some of the makeup artists, her mother, and she were at the table across from us. They kept screwing around whispering to each other, looking at me. I knew they were trying to fuck with me. Then Kate came over and was leaning over my table. I really wasn't paying attention to her. And she kept saying, 'Dana look, Dana look, Dana, hey Dana.' So I turned around, and I'm like, 'What?' And she's like, 'Look.' Her nipple was sticking out of her shirt right in my face." DANA BRUNETTI, PRODUCER, 21
