The new ASOS Magazine lands this week, and boy do we have a cover star for you: the beautiful, cool, intelligent, talented and generally delightful actor and writer Brit Marling, a vision in plaid and tartan (v. A/W'13).

In her cover interview, Brit explains how she broke into the industry by writing and producing the kind of movies she wanted to star in. And in this super-cute behind-the-scenes video, she reveals yet more winning qualities: self-deprecating humour and a fondness for Tupac and tequila. Love.
