When life has got you down and you need a good laugh the show you can always count on is Modern Family. From the very beginning we loved the curly-haired kid brother Luke now coming of age on and off the screen. BELLO recently got a chance to sit down with former kid, Nolan Gould, and discuss his bright future in Hollywood as an adult. We also dig into his personal style, celebrating 209 episodes, and dating in Los Angeles.

DECEMBER 2017 The holidays are finally here! That time of the year when we all run around buying gifts for our loved ones, running the last errands of the year while remembering to spread love and good energy. In other words a perfect occasion to celebrate Modern Family’s Nolan Gould’s first ever cover, held at Hills Penthouse, with the BELLO team, our friends and family and of course, one of our favorite designers Cadogan Price who flew from Singapore just for the occasion. This issue is a celebration of a year of change. BELLO mag went through a major transformation, so we thank you for sticking around and being an essential part of the journey. 2017 was not an easy ride, but we made it work by expanding BELLO Media Group, and all thanks to the amazing people we met along the way. To mention just a few: Alexandra Tuil (Maison Privée), Arthur Galvao (BELLO Brasil), Luke Funcheta, Ally Marrone, Ed Solorzano and Sean Reilly (TheBrand.Partners), and many more who shared amazing times with us during our last few parties. We hope you enjoy all of our fashion and entertainment features, exclusive interviews and editors picks. Besides our cover star Nolan Gould, we had the great pleasure to work with James Maslow, Tessa Brooks, Chandler Kinney and many others for this exciting Holiday issue. We wish you amazing holidays and invite you to keep sending us your wishes @BELLOmag.

Ciao, Alek Aleksandar Tomovic Editor in Chief

The Garden by andrew marvel

How vainly men themselves amaze To win the palm, the oak, or bays, And their uncessant labours see Crown’d from some single herb or tree, Whose short and narrow verged shade Does prudently their toils upbraid; While all flow’rs and all trees do close To weave the garlands of repose. Fair Quiet, have I found thee here, And Innocence, thy sister dear! Mistaken long, I sought you then In busy companies of men; Your sacred plants, if here below, Only among the plants will grow. Society is all but rude, To this delicious solitude. No white nor red was ever seen So am’rous as this lovely green. Fond lovers, cruel as their flame, Cut in these trees their mistress’ name; Little, alas, they know or heed How far these beauties hers exceed! Fair trees! wheres’e’er your barks I wound, No name shall but your own be found. When we have run our passion’s heat, Love hither makes his best retreat. The gods, that mortal beauty chase, Still in a tree did end their race: Apollo hunted Daphne so, Only that she might laurel grow; And Pan did after Syrinx speed, Not as a nymph, but for a reed.

The nectarine and curious peach Into my hands themselves do reach; Stumbling on melons as I pass, Ensnar’d with flow’rs, I fall on grass. Meanwhile the mind, from pleasure less, Withdraws into its happiness; The mind, that ocean where each kind Does straight its own resemblance find, Yet it creates, transcending these, Far other worlds, and other seas; Annihilating all that’s made To a green thought in a green shade. Here at the fountain’s sliding foot, Or at some fruit tree’s mossy root, Casting the body’s vest aside, My soul into the boughs does glide; There like a bird it sits and sings, Then whets, and combs its silver wings; And, till prepar’d for longer flight, Waves in its plumes the various light. Such was that happy garden-state, While man there walk’d without a mate; After a place so pure and sweet, What other help could yet be meet! But ’twas beyond a mortal’s share To wander solitary there: Two paradises ’twere in one To live in paradise alone.

the gardener What wond’rous life in this I lead! Ripe apples drop about my head; The luscious clusters of the vine Upon my mouth do crush their wine;

15

How well the skillful gard’ner drew Of flow’rs and herbs this dial new, Where from above the milder sun Does through a fragrant zodiac run; And as it works, th’ industrious bee Computes its time as well as we. How could such sweet and wholesome hours Be reckon’d but with herbs and flow’rs!

SIMONS SAYS by Steven Carver

It’s a tough time to be a department store in today’s current retail climate. Many in the industry are consolidating and shutting down underperforming locations. Physical square footage is shrinking while digital alternates are on the rise; people are shopping differently. With the move to e-commerce, there are more options to pick from, leaving traditional retailers scrambling to find temporary solutions to retain current customers (many can’t plan that far into their unknown future). But, not everyone is flailing. Some department stores are actually doing well, even in North America.

Founded in 1840 by John Simons as a dry goods store in Quebec City, Quebec, Simons has become well known for being an accessible, yet stylish chain of Canadian department stores. Led by brothers Peter and Richard Simons, they carry on the family legacy and brand’s commitment to cultivating creativity and building meaningful relationships with its customers, staff and partners. Simons has a keen eye to diversifying its real estate footprint, with locations centralized around dense suburban hubs or popular downtown streetscapes. The 15 locations across Canada are approximately 100,000 square feet, rendering their size an ideal midpoint between being overwhelmingly large to get lost in and unimpressively small to make an impression. “We take our time,” says CEO Peter Simons, about making final decisions. Not dictated by fashion trends – or a traditional board of directors – the company makes their own schedule when rolling out new stores. A lot of research is involved. “[Our extensive planning] is the reason for the slow roll-out in a few select cities across Canada.” And if the location leads customers the store,

the design of them will welcome them inside. The airy atmosphere begins with high ceilings and white walls – akin to an art gallery – with warm touches of wood and stone. Departments are color-coded to help differentiate between women’s, men’s, accessories and home (not to mention a café for those in need of a carb and caffeine boost). Additionally, in keeping with its commitment to showcasing Canadian art, Simons regularly commissions installations to be featured throughout each store; making something that is often considered to be restrictive, relatable to everyone. But, a good looking environment is only part of its success. A well-edited and merchandised store is also imperative. Offering an extensive and fashion-forward collection of its own private label brands for men (Djab, Le 31) and women (Contemporaine, Icone, Miiyu, Twik), or both (Edito, I.FIV5), complimented by a selection of Canadians (Denis Gagnon, UNTTLD), discovery brands (Ellery, Lemaire) and international designers (Marni, Paul Smith) – the price ranges keep the budget-savvy and high-rollers equally satisfied.

platform before many of its contemporaries. Showcasing a full assortment of in-store items online, they were able to surpass its competitors by merging both brick-and-mortar and the digital worlds in a cohesive way. Expanding on its digital initiatives, Simons also launched a first-of-its-kind Canadian retail app with unique image recognition, personalization, in-store navigation and fully shoppable ecommerce features. And the free app’s “Starlook” a proprietary image recognition and artificial intelligence system allows users to take or upload a picture of a product they like with the app recommending similar Simons products. A simple idea, yet visionary in its prescience. “We look at opportunities and see where there would be a good fit,” says Simons during a fashion preview. With cautious pre-planning, can it expand beyond its current borders and cross into other countries? Looking at its current state of properties, it could possibly replicate its successful template around the world. And with careful consideration from Simons, time is on their side.

Staying ahead of the curve when it came to e-commerce, Simons forged ahead on the

There’s something rather comforting about the familiar. While some people think “been there, done that” when coming across it, others feel an inherent intimacy associated with the not-toodistant past. This is especially prevalent when it comes to eating. Meatloaf, mac ‘n’ cheese and mashed potatoes are only three foods that bring back good, loving memories. But a meal always tastes better when someone else is making it… at a restaurant. Luckily, it doesn’t take much to make a reservation.

concrete and accents of warm copper. The long bar welcomes those who want a notso-quick drink, and leads into the multi-level dining room in the back. With an eclectic mix of furniture and finishes (and the option of having sections of the restaurant partitioned with thick panels of fabric), the rich caramel tones add to the cozy and comfortable vibe. Bedford & Co.’s menu showcases regional dishes from land and sea, inspired by DeLucie’s world travels. Offering inspired favorites, guided by New York’s local green markets and specialty butcher cuts, DeLucie pays tribute to the rich and bold flavors experienced in Argentina as the kitchen prepares dishes over a wood-burning open grill; adding bold layers of complexity.

The founding chef and partner of celebrity fave, The Waverly Inn, John DeLucie opened Bedford and Co. within New York’s historic Renwick Hotel in Manhattan’s Midtown East neighborhood. Also known for his previous work at The Lion, Crown and other ventures, DeLucie’s style always appears to be deceptively simple but is infused with unexpected flavors and textures with every plate. It’s like eating at home, only much, much better.

There is a engaging mix of options for every meal of the day. There’s breakfast (buttermilk rye pancakes, steel cut Irish oats), a wide-ranging brunch (smoked salmon soft scramble, fried chicken and waffles), light lunch (Bedford burger, “Spiro’s” spaghetti), delectable dinner (Colorado lamb leg, Berkshire pork chop), mouth-watering desserts (raspberry cheesecake in a jar, blueberry crostata), and/or wittily-named drinks (bumbu punch, diplomatic immunity) – all designed while enjoying the lively atmosphere.

Upon entering the restaurant, the calamity of the city is quickly replaced with a hushed silence that rises to an elevated murmur of indistinct voices. No one will be hushed, and no one will want to be; Bedford and Co. is buzzing at all hours of the day. Designed by Meg Sharpe Interiors, the environment is awash in gleaming woods, supple leather, polished stone, poured

Now, it’s time to sit back, relax, and sip on a cocktail while your meal is being prepared. 118 E 40TH STREET NEW YORK, NY

PARTICULARLY PORTLAND

OREGON’S LARGEST CITY HAS BEEN PINGING ON MANY A TRAVELER’S RADAR OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS, LURING THE LIKES OF MANY. HIKO MITSUZUKA @TheFirstEcho TAKES A LONG WEEKEND TO SEE WHAT ALL THE FUSS IS ABOUT. Before visiting Portland, I had romanticized visions of the “City of Roses,” informed by fleeting word-of-mouth, various pieces of travel lit, and sure, a few amusing installments of IFC’s Portlandia. I imagined the mini-me version of San Francisco, populated with bespectacled ladies and bearded gentlemen who appreciate used bookstores and take pride in supporting microbreweries and independent coffee roasters. (F**k those chains, right?) But of course, preconceived notions are supposed to be challenged. First of all, Portland is quickly becoming That City Everyone's Moving To. While New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco are becoming increasingly difficult to afford on an average annual income, Portland is luring Americans of all socioeconomic backgrounds (and proclivities) to its cozy neighborhoods and appealing climate. From Melissa, the cheery restaurant hostess who loves Grey’s Anatomy, and Adrienne, a server who left San Francisco two years ago to escape its insanely demanding housing market, to Justin, an impromptu drinking buddy I met who ditched Pittsburgh for the Pacific Northwestern life -- more and more people are migrating to Portland to press that proverbial restart button on their lives. And it certainly helps that, earlier this year, The New York Times boosted the city’s profile, listing it as one of the “52 Places to Visit in 2017.” As any urban planner will tell you, an influx of new residents results in an increase in housing developments. This is no more evident than in the Inner Southeast neighborhood of the city where I spend my first night at a friend’s apartment in a newly constructed complex that hovers above adorable retailers and cafes. I can’t wait to start exploring in the morning…

It is already sweltering as I wander up and down the well-trodden neighborhood of SE Hawthorne Boulevard where I indulge in some Blue Star Donuts (traditional glazed and blueberry lavender cake) and purchase an irresistible bar of green tea mint soap at Tender Loving Empire. I find breakfast at The Waffle Window in a savory bacon-and-brie waffle with a fried egg on top and a side of orange jam. Back on SE Division Street lunch is at Bollywood Theater, where I meet with Caroline Crawley, the woman who “runs the production” at both locations in the city. Inspired by founder Troy MacLarty’s travels to India, the menu follows a philosophy of cooking that involves “fresh ingredients and bright flavors.” The high-ceilinged space takes on the feel of a neighborhood pub, café, and exotic market, all housed under one roof that was once the home of an all-natural grocer and – fun fact – a 2008 campaign headquarters for then-Senator Barack Obama. My meal consists of Bhel Puri, a bold blend of potatoes, puffed rice, mango, onion, peanuts, spices, and diced veggies. This is followed by Goan-style shrimp in a coconut-lime curry, and Vada Pav, a potato dumping fried in chickpea batter and placed on a roll with chutney. I wash it all down with a glass of strawberry yogurt lassi. Caroline and I talk about our mutual travels, music festivals, and the rapidly evolving neighborhoods within these eco-friendly city limits, much like where the newest Bollywood Theater stands. Later, as I walk down one

residential street, I see this evolution right in front of me. A worn-down, turn-of-the-20thcentury apartment building gives way to a modern three-story condo. Signs proclaiming “Love is love” are proudly planted on lawns. I spot solar panels covering the roofs of several Craftsman-style homes. Every block seems to have a rainbow flag fluttering in the wind. Another result of Portland’s influx of new residents is an influx of visitors, which also means a more bustling hospitality industry, especially downtown. The Duniway (formerly known as the Hilton Executive Tower) is a “lifestyle hotel” that opened its walnut-paneled doors this past summer. It is a stylish, 327-room haven that takes pride in its locally sourced amenities and active role in the creative community. Everything about the chicyet-cozy space is inspiring. “It’s about being bold and taking risks, exploring,” marketing manager Stephen Cassell told the The Oregonian earlier this year. And according to the invitation for its grand opening, the hotel is “for the modern-day trailblazer.” Those of kind of innovative tastes can be found at JackRabbit, The Duniway’s restaurant and bar that flows comfortably into the lobby lounge. Chef Chris Cosentino offers a mouthwatering menu of raw bar items, curated meats, and large family-style dishes. For dinner I order the Bacon Chop, a giant hunk of pork topped with roasted apple slices, caramelized onions, peppercorns, and mint. In between bites I sip my Coin Toss Cocktail, a concoction of tequila, ginger, lime, yellow chartreuse, and pink grapefruit rosé – served with crushed ice in a grapefruit bowl.

issue #161

To fuel me up for the ambitious hike I have planned for today, I grab a late breakfast (okay, brunch) at Red Star Tavern at Hotel Monaco. After being welcomed by Michael, the handsome, bearded host who shows me to my booth, and greeted by my server, the bearded, gingham-wearing Alex, I begin to wonder if all male residents of Portland are required to grow facial hair. I take in the neighborhood pub ambiance with its brick walls and maroon leather hi-top chairs before Alex offers me a piece of the tavern’s homemade coffee cake, fluffy with thick crumbs and powdered sugar. I then opt for the pastrami hash with a side of roasted potatoes. I also ask for a side of their special-made hollandaise sauce. A few blocks away I catch the MAX Red Line in Pioneer Square that takes me up to the entrance of the Oregon Zoo where I begin my 3-hour trek on the 4T Trail Loop (named after the four T’s involved: Train, Trail, Tram, and Trolley). Bypassing the lines of families and animal lovers, I huff my way up to the scenic Council Crest Park, the highest point in the city (at 1,073 feet), and then stroll downhill towards Oregon Health and Science University, where I board the Portland Aerial Tram that takes me down to the riverfront. Next, I board the trolley that takes me back downtown. Drenched in sweat, I earn my next round of calories. A post-shower, pre-dinner session at the retro-loungey Driftwood Room involves a savory charcuterie plate and an extra dirty martini while attempting to people-watch in the small yet dimly lit room. My friend Dara, a Portland

30


native, joins me and, in between bites of blue cheese and dried salami, offers some additional tips on city sights. (The Japanese Garden at Washington Park is not to be missed.) Dinner is at Vitaly Paley’s Headwaters at the iconic Heathman Hotel. I am strategically seated at a table in the middle of dining room which stretches across six concrete pillars into a bar lounge. There’s an undeniable French-Russian flair to everything; eavesdropping on one or two foreign conversations adds to this. My meal consists of octopus carpaccio with nicoise relish, a half-dozen selection of raw oysters, and a halibut filet steamed in a parchment casing with spit-roasted carrots and a buttery house roll. (*Russian Holiday Tea starts on November 24) I end my night with a stroll to Old Town Chinatown, passing rows of food stands tempting pedestrians with their fried fare and grilled meats. They’re the American equivalent of hawker stations, the kind often found in Asian metropolises like Singapore. I have no doubt these booths will be bustling after last call. And they are – I find myself craving some noodles after downing two vodka tonics and befriending some bar buddies at the nearby CC Slaughters on NW Davis Street.

31

I am fascinated by the wallpaper at Paley’s Imperial while I order brunch. One wall is covered in a fun, kitschy design of illustrated pigs, roosters, and dragonflies. A plate of grilled grapefruit dusted with basil sugar and mint comes out first, followed by some Kauai shrimp and grits with mushroom polenta and a buttermilk biscuit soaked in honey butter. Later, as a proud bibliophile and bookworm, I feel obligated to visit Powell’s City of Books, Portland’s famous independent bookseller, one of the nation’s few of its kind. The modest storefront is misleading; once I step in, I find myself wandering through a number of rooms, mesmerized by rows and rows of the new, used, rare, and out-of-print. By nightfall I summon an Uber to take me a short distance to the historic Pearl District, where I am to dine with Peter Platt, the founder of Andina and son of owner Doris Rodriguez de Platt. We're seated at a table on newly opened lower level of the family-run Novoperuvian restaurant, an indoor courtyard-like space that once housed a Dickensian antique shop, a jewelry store, and a travel agency. The facades of these have remained intact, providing the dining area with an architecturally eclectic look. The entire building, a robust structure located at the corner of NW Glisan Street and NW 13th Avenue, has also been retrofitted like many historic addresses in this neighborhood. Over one hundred years ago, this was a busy Oregon rail stop where cattle were brought in and slaughtered; you can still make out the trench lines embedded in the ground. Peter and I then reminisce about our respective

December 2017

trips to South America and go over the extensive menu. We discuss the challenge of finding a year-round supply of essential, high-quality flavor bases for the restaurant's signature recipes. Through his correspondences with "spice brokers" across the world (yes, those are a thing), Platt and his family have successfully managed to find authentic sources to create traditional dishes that have put Andina on the map at a time when Portland is enjoying a renaissance in the food scene. We order a plate of yuca frita, a fantastic ceviche dish called Mixto Chorrillano, carne empanadas (slow-cooked beef, raisins, egg and Botija olives with salsa criolla), and sashimi-style tuna in a tamarindo-rocoto uchucuta, served with a mango-peanut salsa. It is a meal I'll never forget. My last night comes to a close with a nightcap at Olive or Twist, a martini lounge where I rendezvous with some of the friendly faces I had met the night before in Old Town Chinatown. Conversations flow, loose friendships are made, and the vibe is oddly European, travelers from different cities coming together to talk about their experiences in a shared destination. The long weekend is wrapping up, and my memories of this hospitable city are as warm as the cheeks on my vodka-flushed face.

Bello It Guy

exclusive conversation with

JAMES MASLOW Photography Arthur Galvao


Imagine a rocket that’s going full-tilt and just about to reach orbit. It’s the perfect metaphor for the career of singer and actor JAMES MASLOW. Having just wrapped up filming in Atlanta on his latest movie. So who could possibly be more perfect to be BELLO‘s IT GUY! We sat down with James during his BELLO photo shoot in Los Angeles for a quick check-in. by Brent Lambert

If you were cast away to a deserted island and could only bring one musician’s catolog of music with you, who would it be? My first instinct was, I just love Bruno Mars’ current album, but even though he’s been a songwriter for so many years, he’s only been an artist for so many albums at this point. And for the rest of my life if I had to bring someone’s entire collection, I’m going with Michael Jackson. He just has a plethora of amazing music. I think that would be a good one. Of all the musicians you’ve ever met in person, who left you the most starstruck? I will probably say John Mayer because we had such a long and interesting conversation. It was when I first joined Sony Columbia’s team and I was backstage with him at one of his shows at the Staples Center, and we chatted for about 20 minutes. And of all the many things we talked about, from the bright topics to the dark topics, one of the things that he said that stuck with me was when he said, ‘Alright man, so tonight I’m playin’ for you.’ And I responded in a tone, like, ‘Yeah, ya know, like me and 17,000 other people.’ Not trying to be rude, but I was like, ‘Yeah, OK, I get it.’ But he was like, ‘No, dude, think about it. If I came to one of your concerts, wouldn’t you be thinking, holy shit, John Mayer is in the crowd! Let me make sure I do a good show for him.’ And my response was, ‘Of course.’ And even though I’m sure he’s used that on a lot of girls, I was thinking, ‘This feels pretty

53

good! [laughing] This is pretty dope.’ And after that I respected him in more than just a musicianship kind of way. What was your best memory of summer 2017? I’ve got a photo from this past weekend that’s pretty funny. I’ve been working most of the summer, shooting a really cool movie in Atlanta this past month, but I came back to LA and we had to go all out. And this is a photo of me and one of my really good friends, Marcus at a party in a house up in the Hills. So if you zoom in, this memory right now is of us surrounded by these beautiful girls, with a bottle of Casamigos up in the air. It was awesome to come home and see a bunch of my best friends. Best concert experience of your life? I think Depeche Mode. It was one of my first concerts ever. I was with my dad and my bro, and I was probably ten or twelve. They just put on such a hell of a show. I knew a good amount of the music, but even the songs I didn’t know I was singing along by the end of them. They’re just such great performers. And funny enough I saw Garth Brooks recently at the Forum. I’m not a big country fan, but he knows how to work a crowd. I was pretty impressed, and it was a lot of fun. Have you always known that you would build a solo career? Yeah, I mean, as much as the guys and I had a huge amount of input on the look of the band, the band itself was essential-

December 2017

ly created by Sony. And there’s always a shelf life to something like that. And I never wanted to play to a smaller crowd. So, building that band up to be one of the biggest in the world, and now starting to build my own brand, is exactly what I always planned on doing. And when I own the brand I can do this for the rest of my life. That’s far more exciting. Number one secret tip for staying in shape? I’d say it all about consistency. Don’t diet, just eat healthy. And if you’re going to exercise only one class, that’s not going to do it, so be sure to find something you enjoy doing. Also, it’s important to understand when to eat your carbohydrates. Carbs are good — our muscles are made with water, protein, and carbs. Also, there’s the difference between white rice and brown rice. If you’re going to work out right away, then eat something high-glycemic like white rice because it metabolizes more quickly; whereas if you’re not going to work out you don’t want it to metabolize quickly and turn into fat right away, so you’ll eat brown rice with is low-glycemic and slower. What’s your biggest guilty pleasure? Besides tequila [laughing]? There’s the burritos which is my favorite thing in the world, and burgers, fries, chips, salsa — those are my guilty pleasures. There’s a place called Blue Dog in Sherman Oaks, it’s just a little hole in the wall place, but it’s just f@ckin’ good! It’s one of my favorite burger places in LA.

exclusive conversation with

CHANDLER KINNEY PHOTOGRAPHY ARTHUR GALVAO


FOX’s LETHAL WEAPON breakout star CHANDLER KINNEY sits down with Bello Mag for a one on one interview on what it means to be this month’s It Girl. From FASHION to acting to PHILANTHROPY, this girl is a force not to be reckoned with.

by Ed Solorzano

How did you get your start acting? I began dancing at the age of three and naturally transitioned into acting through theater and commercials at the age of nine. After having my first on set experience when filming a holiday dance campaign for Gap, I was intrigued with on-camera work. I began taking acting lessons around that time and immediately fell in love with the art.   A lot of fans know you from your current role on FOX’s “Lethal Weapon.” What can fans expect from your character, “Riana Murtaugh” this season?  I'm really enjoying the direction my character is moving in. People can expect a lot of personal growth from Riana this season. She's going through her teenage years, a very pivotal time in one's life. She will go through a lot to find her place in her world. Fans will definitely see her develop as the season progresses; she finds her voice and is able to stand up for what she believes in with confidence. There are also many beautiful storylines involving the daddy-daughter dynamic. Her relationship with her dad will grow and change as she matures.   What is your dream role?  My dream role is a strong, powerful, intelligent leading-lady character in an action film where I get to film super cool fight scenes!   What advice would you give young girls just starting out in the industry? Don't let outdated views concerning gender roles in media ever discourage you from portraying the roles you want to portray. Never let anyone tell you your dreams 59

are too big. And lastly, don't compete, support. If you continue to love what you do while working hard at it, your time will most definitely come. I promise, there is enough space for all of us to succeed. You’ve been exploding on the fashion scene lately. Who are some of your fashion inspirations? I've really been working hard on developing my fashion style and ensuring that it is uniquely me. I honestly pull fashion inspiration from a wide variety of people and sources and I believe that is reflected in my eclectic sense of how I like to present myself. I enjoy being exciting and unexpected while taking risks. In order to do so, I learn from everyone I see.   What was your inspiration behind founding your charity, Chandler’s Friends? And tell us about your yearly Toy Wrapping event.  The importance of philanthropy has always been emphasized to me ever since I was very young. For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to work to make a difference in the lives of people in need. My mom and I created Chandler's Friends about 3 years ago to become more involved within our community. Our organization started small as we sent handmade blankets to foster children and with time and a lot of growth, we have now been able to give back on a much larger scale.  Last year, we decided to do a special event for the holidays. Christmas is my all-time favorite holiday, and spreading holiday cheer is possibly my favorite hobby. We December 2017

teamed up with Hasbro and they provided my organization with 300 toys to give, and we donated them to School on Wheels which services homeless youth. This year, we hosted a Toy Drive and Wrapping event with help from “Lethal Weapon.” It was held at my old dance studio, the Los Angeles Ballet Academy. We had an incredible turn out! We chose to donate the toys to an elementary school that could use a little help for the holiday season! Getting to personally hand out the toys to every single child was such a heartwarming experience that I'll never forget. What else are you looking forward to this holiday season? Do you have any special traditions in your family? I can't tell you just how excited I am for the holiday break. I'm most looking forward to rest and honestly, just being surrounded by family. I'll be spending Christmas with my grandparents and cousins and I seriously can't wait. We talk really late into the night, sleep in, eat yummy foods, and play a ton of games. Holidays with my family is one of my favorite things in the world.   We’ve chosen you for our “It Girl” feature. Pay it forward. Who are some other “it girls” in the industry or outside the industry you’d like to celebrate and why? Talented actress and model, as well as one of my good friends, Jada Taylor is an "It Girl." Her everyday street style is fashionable and cutting edge. She truly is bold and fearless when it comes to expressing herself and it is very admirable.

NOLAN GOULD written by Ally Maronne / photography Arthur Galvao

When life has got you down and you need a good laugh the show you can always count on is Modern Family. From the very beginning we loved the curly-haired kid brother Luke now coming of age on and off the screen. BELLO recently got a chance to sit down with former kid, Nolan Gould, and discuss his bright future in Hollywood as an adult. We also dig into his personal style, celebrating 209 episodes, and dating in Los Angeles.

Having nine years under your belt with two more to go- how do you manage to keep “Luke” fresh after all this time? “We have to give credit to the writers. We are so lucky to have them, and because the character of Luke has changed so much, it is easy. He has grown up physically and emotionally- he is not a static character. The writers have ingeniously changed Luke from a sweet dumb kid to this somewhat evil genius and now we are dealing with important life decisions like him deciding not to go to college. Luke is such an interesting story to tell and I think many people can identify with his real-life experiences.” The audience certainly loves to hang out with Modern Family every week but who do you hang out with when the camera stops rolling? "I have a lot of buddies. Our dynamic changes as I grow up but at the moment I am really close with Ty [Burrell]. Not only as an actor but as a regular role model. He is truly one of the nicest most real people. To meet someone like

him in Hollywood is almost impossible. Of course, Ariel [Winter]. We both started this journey at 10 years old and we have grown up together; she is like my sister. I learn from her!” We know Ariel [Winter] is such an advocate for anti-body shaming and cyberbullying, but we wondered if you had any experiences dealing with negative comments via social media? “I got body shamed when I was 11… by my Grandma. I was 10 years old, packing on the pounds after being on set with access to unlimited snacks, and she made a comment about it! But when it comes from her, it means something so at 11 I decided to start going to the gym. In retrospect probably not the best idea. Overall, I have remained pretty lucky as far as that world goes. You have to find a level you are comfortable with opening up to the public. I am still figuring out how much to share. I have taken the safer route and remained closed off. People want to attack you. You never want to give them

anything to talk about. However, I am very political and environmentally aware so I do a lot of commentary on those issues and that opens you up to a different kind of attention. Recently, I was just in a bad mood so instead of staying off the internet I went on Instagram and started responding but in a way that made me feel good. Let’s be polite, have a discussion. If you disagree with one of my points let’s talk about it but I am going to win!” You have come out as being a very intelligent person. With an IQ of 150+, you are a certified genius. Was there any pressure to pursue something more stable and academic because of your gift? "This is actually something that I am currently going through. I am figuring out my own feelings about it. I recently got accepted into a prestigious program for cinematic arts but I decided that I am going to defer. My family is truly supportive and this is probably a different path than what people saw for me, but Modern Family is a one in a billion opportunity. I decided I have

two years left on the show so I skip college for now, and take a bet on myself.” It turns out brilliance runs in the family. Nolan’s brother, Aidan, is also a certified genius. "Both me and my brother are genii', I think that's the proper term. That's what people keep telling me! It is very embarrassing but I have a genius card for a MENSA membership. My family gave my brother and me the option to go to gifted schools & genius meetings to discuss nuclear fusion, but we decided not to be normal and pursue the arts. We are the first members of our family to do that. We come from a traditional family from the south." Obviously, we have to talk about your fashion. What is your personal style like? “It is something I am still trying to find. I recently stopped growing so I can finally buy designer clothes I won’t grow out of. What’s the point of buying Saint Laurent if you outgrow it immediately? I love GStar, All Saints, Denim & Supply… things that show a little more of my edge. As a young actor I do want to show that I take this seriously, so I usually show up to events always in suits. I look at things I like and think that is fashionable but I don’t know why. I need a lot of help but I do like fashion. It’s all new to me! I can decide what kind of person I want to be and how I show myself to the world. It’s all for me to decide so stay tuned.” Dating is hard but there must be an added element of difficulty being a young Hollywood star. How has dating worked out for you so far? "It's difficult. There are certain aspects of my life that people don't understand when your dating. I can't text you back all the time. We can't always go out in public together; people will ask questions and it's going to make your life difficult. It's hard for a lot of people outside of the industry to understand. It's also hard to make it work with people inside the industry. There are a lot of complexes and egos and you always have to wonder if the person you are with is using you for who you are. On one hand, I am a cynical teenager and think love is just a chemical reaction and true

love doesn’t exist but at the same time, I am also a hopeless romantic in a lot of ways. I am young and I have time.” You have done a comedic show for 9 years now- 209 episodes and counting. What kind of roles do you see yourself portraying in the future? “Drama. For sure. Modern Family is the first comedy I ever did, I guess it turned out okay but I do want to get back into drama, specifi-

cally feature films. I also would like to get into writing- I think that is something every actor should do. I think it makes you a better actor.” We also were told you are quite the musician and play some unusual instruments "It was a weird obsession as a kid but I liked to pick the strangest instruments

and learn them. I currently play the banjo, the double bass, sitar, and theremin. This is when my parents should have stepped in! They should have told me maybe to lay off the banjo if you want to have a girlfriend. People my own age still have to break away from all of the emotional things they go through trying to fit in. Playing the banjo is more of an outsider thing. I do want to explore music- not professionally. Not every actor has to release an album. Personally, as a hobby, I would love to get into playing my bass in a jazz band. I would love to go to a street corner with my bass, a snare, and a high hat and play. I feel that is a great way to entertain people that don't involve me or my status." Outside of the arts, you are quite the thrill-seeking outdoorsman. “I am known for getting hurt on every location shoot on Modern Family. 8 stitches in my knee in Hawaii in season 1. Filming in Jackson Hole I fell off a fence and have scars from that, but recently this season, in Lake Tahoe, I went mountain biking alone. I didn’t tell anyone what trail I was on because I like that added element of danger. I took 1 bottle of water, no food, and no map. 6 miles up I flip my bike, gash my knee open, and immediately take a selfie. I make it back covered in mud and blood everywhere. It didn't match continuity. If you go back and watch the episode, in certain scenes Luke has the injury. They had to cut around it because it was so obvious. But backpacking, scuba diving, surfing are all my passions. If I wasn't an actor I would be doing that full time. LA's version of nature is Runyon Canyon with a kale juice. I like dirty, exhausting, scary. I like pushing myself and proving to myself that I can. Scuba diving is a very personal self-reflective thing. Going down 80ft not focusing on the fact that the ocean is trying to kill you. Everything about scuba diving is just a solution to a problem of dying. Going down there and just breathing is very therapeutic. It is the closest human beings will ever come to flying.”

You have already lived such a full life at 19. Is there any advice you want to share with other young actors? “I would say make sure you surround yourself with good people. It is how I have managed to stay grounded. Surround yourself with people who are real with you and that realness comes from them loving you. Have a life outside of acting. I think this is where a lot of young actors miss out. Acting is so amazing and easy to get so passionate about and it does take up so much of your time. But the industry moves on fast and if you truly believe this is the rest of your life and you wake up one day and it’s not- I think that’s where a lot of young people spiral out of control. They’re still chasing what they used to have and don’t know where to go with the rest of their life. Make sure to have friends, family, hobbies, interests, back up plans, education… even though I am skipping college, for now, it is so important. I do already have an associate’s degree!” “The most important thing is my reputation. It means more to me than anything, probably even more than my career. If I can at the end of the day walk out of this industry and still have people believe in me and still have my soul intact then I think I have succeeded. I have made it 14 years in this industry and I still feel normal. I am hopeful for the future.”
