That Time When is Interview’s weekly trip through the pop cultural space-time continuum, where we return to some of the most overlooked moments from issues past. In this edition, we revisit our May 2001 issue with cover star Nicole Kidman–Aussie icon and acting chameleon–and her conversation with Baz Luhrmann about their wild time filming Moulin Rouge . Some actors fall victim to pigeonholing, but Nicole Kidman is not one of them
“Going Out” is a column celebrating the legacy of our founder, Andy Warhol. Long ago, in the disco ball-refracted days of The Factory, Warhol’s Interview chronicled the comings and goings of the downtown scene, spotlighting its ever-eccentric populace in their favorite dimly lit haunts.
It’s a typical day at the photographer Eric Johnson’s midtown studio: eating sour candies in director’s chairs, watching television as we wait for a chart-topping rapper to ring the intercom. When we were waiting for Rich the Kid , it was Law and Order: Special Victims Unit .
On Second Thought offers iconic subjects the rare chance to revisit an interview from our archives, and reckon with the good and the bad of it.

Sachs—who was accompanied by his studio assistants and his “surfing rabbi” Pat “Punker Pat” Towersey—never actually learned how to surf.

In the earliest days of Cottweiler , founders Matthew Dainty and Ben Cottrell would debut their collections on Tumblr, selling an extremely limited number of pieces to order. The initial recognition for the brand, therefore, didn’t come from critics, but from the online community who picked up the images, some of which even went viral on the site. Though the duo has held physical runway shows in the nine years since, they’ve often sidestepped conventional fashion week formats, showing previous seasons at places like London’s ICA , The Rambert School of Ballet , and a space 12 floors below a multi-story car park.
It’s Gemini season, meaning the most extra celebrities are celebrating their sunny days of birth. Drew Barrymore partied on a sailboat with lots of rosé. Peter Dinklage rode a scooter through Brooklyn Heights
