British it-girl Lily Cole doesn't want to be boxed in: The successful model launched an eco-friendly clothing line, has two upcoming films and a new television series in the works.
"I quite like breaking down this conception of art as this very kind of insular space," Cole explained in a recent interview. "I've worked with a lot of artists through film as a medium... so I'd love to keep doing more within that medium. We'll see how that manifests."
The 23-year-old Vogue cover girl, who recently graduated from Cambridge with a degree in art history, will be interviewing top contemporary artists for a six-part Sky Arts series called "Lily Cole's Art Matters."
Cole also stars in Mary Harron's coming of age drama "The Moth Diaries," available now on Video on Demand and in theaters Friday. Her clothing line is called The North Circular. And in June she'll share the big screen with Charlize Theron and Kristen Stewart in the reimagined fairy tale, "Snow White and the Huntsman."
Cole considers herself lucky to have teamed with directors, like Harron, who supported her studies, environmental activism and busy modeling schedule, but admits she's not quite sure how she balanced it all.
"I don't know. I'm kind of surprised I fit it in too," she mused.
