InterviewMagazine.com has archived vintage interviews and more fun features from some of the hottest personalities in fashion, music, film and the arts. 

Interview Magazine is known for its complimentary issues given to the “in-crowd” as freebies to lure more contributions to the magazine, so as to attract potential new advertisers.

The Interview Magazine website does the same for the online community. As a magazine founded by artists Andy Warhol and Gerard Malanga in 1969, its cutting-edge graphics covers for magazines issues from 1970 to present can be browsed to marvel over. 

One part of the website’s archives, the Flashback! Interview, has a compilation of vintage photos of Hollywood’s hottest stars (from A-Z) from when they were just beginning to shimmer on the scene. Here are some of my favorites:

22-year-old Angelina Jolie, June 1997 issue: "Now I have nothing against anything I’ve been in before, because I love all sides of me, but I have been experimenting more with that lovely woman side. In this age of feminism, I would hate for the whole gentlemen and ladies things to be lost."

21-year-old Cameron Diaz, August 1994 issue: "Whatever success people have in a field, it’s a result of hard work. If you ultimately succeed in one place, you must have worked hard there or somewhere else.

Others I liked include Leonardo DiCaprio, age 19: June 1994; 16-year-old Kirsten Dunst, September 1998; Jodie Foster, 18-years-old: August 1987; Robert Downey Jr., age 23, April 1989. Stats for Vintage Hollywood Archives Trending: Older & Chilly
