I’ve added Dianna’s gorgeous Vanity Fair photoshoot into the gallery. I must say, it is one of my absolute favourite Dianna photoshoots ever. Head over to the gallery for the latest additions.
Dianna Agron wants to show us another side, and we shouldn’t be surprised that she has one. The 24-year-old “Glee” star—she plays cheerleader Quinn Fabray, in case you’ve been in cryogenic suspension since 2009—grew up taking ballet lessons, but her nickname was Charlie, for her male alter ego and the star of the short stories she’d write in high school. She revered equally the poised Audrey Hepburn and the madcap Lucille Ball. And she’s become famous for playing a virginal, super-popular, conservative cheerleader who gets pregnant, joins the show choir, and starts agitating for all the misfits there. Can we pin her dichotomies on an Upstairs, Downstairs, Eloise-like upbringing?
Agron grew up in hotels in Savannah and San Francisco—her father was a Hyatt general manager—and she credits this peripatetic childhood of watching travelers drop their guard for her interest in human psychology and, ultimately, acting. Her intrepid contrariety explains her latest film project as well: I Am Number Four, which comes out this winter and is based on the first in James Frey’s pseudonymous series of young-adult novels. “I’m likening it to Rebel Without a Cause,” Agron explained. “With supernatural elements. And aliens.” Having had the opportunity to perform chase scenes and jump off buildings, she’s ready to add other weapons to her pom-pom arsenal. “I want to be badass,” she cracked. We can’t wait to watch that.

E! Online caught up with Di at Sunday’s Breakthrough Awards at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood—where she was being honored as the Breakthrough Newcomer—and seeing as we were told she knew nothing about Glee and that infamous Britney Spears cameo (the cast has been told to shut the ef up about it), we chatted with the très adorable blond babe about her newest flick, The Romantics.
Your new movie, The Romantics, has a lot of big names in the cast—Katie Holmes, Anna Paquin, Josh Duhamel—did any of their famous families stop by the set?
“Tom [Cruise] did. Suri was there every day. We met Fergie many times. We just bonded so quickly; we became such a family—all of us, which doesn’t always happen. We would cook dinners together and go for romps on the beach and play board games. It was just so much fun off the set and on.”
And you worked closely with Anna. Would you ever be interested in guest starring on True Blood?
“Oh my gosh, of course. It’s an amazing show, and she’s amazing. I got the privilege of playing her sister, and she’s just such a strong, wonderful woman.”
We totally agree. So, big question. What would you choose to be: vampire or werewolf?
“I would want to be a vampire.”

It was announced months ago that the new “Spider-Man” reboot would feature Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker. But which lovely young Hollywood starlet should play his love interest? According to the Hollywood Reporter, the character will not be Mary Jane Watson, who was played by Kirsten Dunst in the recent “Spider-Man” trilogy. Gwen Stacy, a character introduced in “Spider-Man 3″ and played by Bryce Dallas Howard, is still a possibility, or it could be some unknown female character.
THR revealed several names in talks for the part — Imogen Poots, Ophelia Lovibond, Lilly Collins, Teresa Palmer and Emma Roberts. Zap2it would like to offer a few casting suggestions of our own:
Dianna Agron from “Glee” is another popular Zap2it choice. She’s sweet on the outside, but we know she has some fight in her. And if there was a musical scene, they’d be all set.
Other names suggested include: Kate Mara (“Transsiberian”), Lyndsy Fonseca (“Kick-Ass”), Chloe Moretz (“Kick-Ass”), and Lucy Hale (“Pretty Little Liars”). Who do you think should play Peter Parker’s new love interest? (Source)
