Grace for Flaunt Magazine

Grace for Flaunt Magazine

Grace was photographed and interviewed for Flaunt magazine along with her Tell Me Lies co-star, Jackson White. Take a look at the photoshoot below!

FLAUNT – It tasted like love, but it wasn’t. It was just a lie under the guise of something tender and true. And when you’re young and naïve to love, you can’t really tell the difference. We’ll use the bodies of others and our own as maps to find ourselves, only to find nothing. And one day, when enough time has passed we’ll realize it wasn’t really love—just the obsession of feeling something for the first time.

This near universal experience is unpacked with actors Grace Van Patten and Jackson White in support of their new Hulu drama series, Tell Me Lies. Based on Carola Lovering’s best-selling novel of the same name, Tell Me Lies follows Van Patten (previously known for Nine Perfect Strangers and Under The Silver Lake) as young Baird College freshman Lucy Albright. In her first year of college, she meets Stephen DeMarco, played by White, who starred in Mrs. Fletcher and action-thriller Ambulance. Together, they embark on the entanglements of young love and lying without consequence. The ten-episode drama-thriller begins with a death of a classmate and documents how a single lie feeds on the insecurity of not knowing who you are, secrecy between friends, and for some characters, an awakening.

Grace Talks “Tell Me Lies” with W Magazine

Through Tell Me Lies, Grace Van Patten Found Herself

The actress tries on the role of troubled student with a tumultuous love life for her biggest project yet.

W MAGAZINE – Like most trendsetters, Grace Van Patten hopped on the low-rise jeans train long before everyone else caught on. She was filming Tell Me Lies, Hulu’s dark romantic drama which, crucially, is set in 2007—when the iPhone was in its infancy and fashion was, to put it lightly, risky. At her wardrobe fitting, the actress was met with pairs of True Religion jeans that rested far below the belly button; she felt nauseous at the sight. But as production carried on, her apprehension at the throwback wardrobe turned into appreciation.

Grace for Contents Magazine

CONTENTS MODE – Grace Van Patten, American actor, has been immersed in the bright lights of the entertainment industry since she was a child. Her acting debut was on The Sopranos when she was only 8 years old where her passion for acting ignited like a fire that has only spread as she’s gotten older. While Van Patten’s career has soared into the clouds over the past few years, she describes her most recent roles as “broken bird” characters. In Nine Perfect Strangers, she plays Zoe Marconi, whose tragic reason for her family’s stay at the self-improvement resort underscores much of the series. Similarly, in her upcoming film MAYDAY, she stars as Ana, who, like Zoe, finds herself in a sinister location masked by beauty. Ana’s arrival to this location, surrounded by several women, also comes out of tragedy. Van Patten’s performances are impressive, to say the very least, as her characters’ emotions radiate through the screen to tell stories of unimaginable pain and strength (as evidenced through her newly found swimming muscles that she tells us developed as she filmed MAYDAY!). Van Patten tells us about her passion for acting, her book club as she prepared for her role in Nine Perfect Strangers, her experience filming in Croatia’s blue waters for MAYDAY, and her upcoming not so broken bird roles!

Variety’s 10 Actors to Watch Panel

Variety’s 10 Actors to Watch Panel

VARIETY – Grace Van Patten, daughter of “Sopranos” director Tim Van Patten, said all her time growing up in Hollywood didn’t prepare her for director Noah Baumbach’s audition strategy. When she went to read for a part in the upcoming “The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected),” she was handed 15 pages of sides and given 10 minutes to prepare. “You’ve just got to tell yourself that everybody is in the same position,” she said. “You just gotta breathe.”

It wasn’t until Baumbach told her that she had the part that she learned who her co-stars would be: Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller, Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson, among other luminaries. “He gave me all four names at once,” she said. “I couldn’t handle myself.” Like many of Baumbach’s previous films, “The Meyerowitz Stories” depicts a complicated family relationship that is at turns harrowing and hilarious. It won the Palm D’or at Cannes in May.

10 Actors to Watch: Grace Van Patten Stars in ‘The Meyerowitz Stories’

VARIETYGrace Van Patten is one of Variety‘s 10 Actors to Watch for 2017.

Growing up in a New York showbiz family — dad is “The Sopranos” and “Boardwalk Empire” director Tim Van Patten; uncle was veteran comic actor Dick Van Patten — Grace Van Patten seemed destined to carry on the family tradition.
But it wasn’t until she took time off after graduating Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts to take a few college courses that she realized acting was her singular passion.

“I wanted to experience other things and make sure that acting was something I wanted to do,” says Van Patten. “I knew I loved acting so much, but I hadn’t admitted to myself that it was really what I wanted to pursue, probably because I didn’t have the full confidence.”

That soon changed once the budding ingénue landed roles in the horror thriller “Central Park” and the comic drama “Tramps.” She’s now earning raves as Adam Sandler’s daughter in Noah Baumbach’s treatise on familial dysfunction “The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected).”
