Press Release back to list


Beverley Mitchell, Jodie Sweetin and Christine Lakin (Pop’s “Hollywood Darlings”)

Are Saucy and Sweet in a Playful Photo Spread

NEW YORK – March 20, 2018 – The covers of the March/April issue of CBS’s Watch! magazine, available on newsstands as of today, feature NCIS: LOS ANGELES star Daniela Ruah and CBS EVENING NEWS anchor Jeff Glor. Also, Beverley Mitchell, Jodie Sweetin and Christine Lakin (HOLLYWOOD DARLINGS on Pop) go glam in a playful fashion spread.

For Daniela Ruah’s photo spread, which captured her modern sophistication and sexy elegance against a backdrop of Old Hollywood, she slipped into an array of sexy red – and slinky black – dresses, selected by stylist Jordan Grossman, and was photographed in a 1920s Spanish style Los Angeles home by CBS senior staff photographer Cliff Lipson. Ruah dazzled with blissful ballet moves for one shot, gamely braved the rain for two other shots, and exuded positive energy and excitement through it all. During her interview with regular Watch! contributor John Griffiths, Ruah laughs about having had a poster of Chris O’Donnell when she was in her teens, long before either of their NCIS: LOS ANGELES days; she reminisces about how she met her real-life husband through another current co-star, Eric Christian Olsen; and she chats about making the leap to the U.S. from Portugal, adding gratefully, “I came to America with a hope for an amazing future, and it came true.”

CBS EVENING NEWS anchor Jeff Glor was shot by photographer Dario Calmese in a studio in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City. In the profile, Glor discusses his career, why he thinks it’s essential to report beyond U.S. borders, being part of “a line” at CBS News that includes the legendary Walter Cronkite and Edward R. Murrow (whose photos are a backdrop in one of the Watch! shots of Glor), and the challenges he, like other parents, has deciding if/when his 8-year-old son should be made aware of tragic stories in the news.  In talking about why being well versed in history is key in his line of work (he even checks out tabloids from the late 1800s in museums), Glor states, “I think it’s really healthy and important to have some sense of what has happened in the past. If we don’t, then I think it’s easy to be reflexive – and there can be an instinct to sometimes panic and think that something is unprecedented when, with all due respect, it’s really not.”

Beverley Mitchell, Jodie Sweetin and Christine Lakin’s positive energy and real-life camaraderie were ideal ingredients in creating their fun and whimsical fashion spread, which was styled by Jordan Grossman and photographed by Nigel Parry in a sprawling villa in the Hollywood Hills. During their interview with Watch! columnist Emily Hirshey, the trio shared how they got their starts as child actors and first met each other as children, despite being on separate hit shows (Sweetin on “Full House,” Lakin on “Step By Step” and Mitchell on “7th Heaven”); the genesis of HOLLYWOOD DARLINGS, which returns for a second season on April 18; and how it works when filming their unscripted docu-comedy series. “We have a lot of the storylines mapped out, but however we want to get that story across is sort of up to us,” said Sweetin. Added Lakin, “…we’ll usually go sit in the trailer with our director and our producer and go through the beats, and someone will say, ‘Beverley, you take this part, we’ll talk about this thing, we’ll do a little improv here, we’ll have the “make fun of Beverley moment” and then get back to the meat of the scene.’ So we kind of know where it’s all going to go.”
