NEW YORK – May 22, 2018 – The cover stars of the May/June edition of CBS’ Watch! magazine, available on newsstands as of today, are the dazzling GRAMMY Award-winning musician, film/television actress and talk show host (THE TALK), Eve, and the dashing film/TV star (NCIS: LOS ANGELES), Broadway veteran and golf lover, Chris O’Donnell. Additional highlights in the issue include a story featuring the stars and creator of the legendary series “Dallas” reminiscing about Southfork on the 40th anniversary of the hit show’s premiere; a feature full of BIG BROTHER tidbits and memorable moments as the popular and unpredictable reality show celebrates 20 seasons; and an essay on Damian Lewis and his captivating BILLIONS character, Bobby Axelrod.

Eve looks positively regal in a desert shoot photographed by Kwaku Alston and styled by June Ambrose, in the midst of Joshua Tree National Park’s striking Joshua Trees and remarkable rock formations. Despite the wind and chilly temperatures, Eve was a trouper while posing in ethereal styles that exhibited a sense of sensuality and grace. During her candid interview with Malcolm Venable, Eve discusses how living in the United Kingdom has changed her; how she keeps connected with her London-based husband and four step-children now that she’s hosting THE TALK in Los Angeles; what it was like starting out in the male-centric world of hip-hop; what drives her to move forward when things are trying; and how she hopes to motivate and inspire others with her own story. Says Eve: “You can design your life. I think we put limits on ourselves…I’m from Philly, I grew up in the hood, all that. But my life is amazing, and I feel truly blessed – even with the bad parts that have happened. And I would hope that, beyond words that I say, just my presence is inspiring to girls like me who come from where I’ve come from.”

At the Resort at Pelican Hill, a luxurious ocean-side getaway in Newport Beach, Calif., the golf-loving Chris O’Donnell got into the swing of his shoot with photographer David Needleman by literally swinging clubs on one of Pelican Hill’s picturesque 18-hole golf courses. Styled by Michael Nash, the wardrobe included a few items from O’Donnell’s own brother’s label, Johnnie-O. In Alex Bhattacharji’s accompanying feature story, O’Donnell talks about growing up in Illinois; starting his career as a catalog model; his extraordinary run starring in a number of hit feature films in the 1990s; settling down with his wife at age 26; and his nine seasons – and counting – on NCIS: LOS ANGELES. O’Donnell reminisces: “The show could not have come at a better time in my life, having five young kids in school…I did have an enormous amount of [film] success right out of the gate, which probably made me take things for granted. But then I went through lows, [and] when I got another chance, I appreciated it so much more… [The series] satisfies me on a lot of different levels because we have very dramatic episodes, we do crazy action, we have some comedy…I love to do it.”
