Even by celebrity standards, Kate Bosworth is an overachiever. An accomplished actress and athlete, the Connecticut native won her first role, as ScarJo's doomed adolescent best friend in "The Horse Whisperer," by bringing a Polaroid of herself to an extras casting session. Now nearly 30, Bosworth has a new side project: a jewelry line with her stylist, Cher Coulter. Here's what she said during our cover shoot in LA:

On her new jewelry collection, JewelMint:

"I wanted to make everything $30. There's nothing in that price range, really. You can go to, like, Claire's and get something for $5, and the next level up is over $100. This is a middle range of really cute, really fun accessories.  All my friends love a bargain, whether or not they can also shop at expensive stores... Sienna Miller's one of my best friends and we always go bargain hunting!"

On her new co-star:

"I'm obsessed with Ezra Miller. He's such a fantastic actor and I'm really honored, honestly, that we got to work together. He's gonna be a big deal."

On fate:

"I don't think I could be anything but an actress but if I were, I'd be a psychiatrist. I think people are so interesting and I think their issues are so much a part of what make people who they are. I know I have my issues, for sure!"
