Although she's only 25, Paz de la Huerta has spent a number of years in front of the camera, modeling and acting. You've probably seen her in ad campaigns for high-end fashion houses like Alberta Ferretti
, Uniqlo and Wolford and in movies like A Walk to Remember
, not to mention countless Indies. If you haven't seen the miniskirt and combat wearing beauty, get ready, because she's going to be everywhere very soon.
This year, Paz is getting ready to star in Martin Scorsese's HBO series Boardwalk Empire, alongside Steve Buscemi and Michael Pitt. She's also stirring up talk from her recent film, Enter the Void, where she plays a character searching for her drug-dealing brother and winds up a stripper. Intense, huh? But that's Paz for you.
"Paz is Genghis Khan meets Marie Antoinette," says her mother, Judith Bruce in an interview with New York Magazine. "She is tempestuous and provocative. She wants a big life, and like all great people, it's going to take a little experimentation before she can get all of the keys together."
Both projects are due out this fall and sure to make Paz known beyond the small world of fashion and film.
