i-D: 10 Things You Should Know About Phoebe Tonkin

It’s easy to fall in love with Phoebe Tonkin. She is the kind of girl that your little sister is in love with, your boyfriend is secretly in love with and if you’re honest with yourself in terms of girl crushes, you are too. It’s not just her beauty, style and talent that pulls you in, it’s that you get the sense that she’s really the girl who likes to sit at home in her pyjamas (one of her favourite items of clothing) with her girlfriends eating Nutella on toast and laughing about the fact that she just face planted in front of a variety of Victoria’s Secret Angels at her most recent exercise class. She is an extremely honest and ‘down to earth’ modern celebrity with a serious handle on social media, her career and all that the world has to offer. We sat down to learn a little more about the loves of this lovable talent.

1. The first time she said ‘I love you’…
“It was probably to my dog, Kari, who was my first childhood love. She was a golden retriever and the most beautiful dog in the world.”

2. On her first gesture in the name of love…
“I had an argument with someone once and he was deliberately not answering my calls so I drove over to his house. I knew he was home so I climbed over the fence and essentially broke in. I don’t think that’s a grand gesture of love, maybe it’s just trespassing.”

3. Her most treasured possession…
“A gold ring that my partner bought me that I always have with me.”

4. On who she’d most like to be trapped in an elevator with…
“Thom Yorke.”

5. On love in the age of social media…
“Sometimes you just feel like that thirteen year old who wants to post photos of your partner everywhere surrounded by hand drawn hearts and stickers because you’re happy and in love. But other times you have to remember that your relationship deserves privacy and sadly you are an adult now and there’s a big difference between your school journal and a social network site where you have hundreds of thousands of strangers seeing everything you do.”

6. Her favourite sensation…
“Is getting into a warm bath on a chilly morning.”

7. On her biggest dream or goal in life…
“To have a big family and live in the canyons.”

8. On her first celebrity crush…
“My first crush was on David Copperfield, the magician. I saw a bunch of his shows when I was really young and I knew it was love at first sight.”

9. On the childhood talent no one knows about…
“I went to pony camp every summer holidays when I was a child.”

10. Her motto in life…
“Be the change.”
