The moment Haley Bennett stepped onto set for our photo shoot with Ellen von Unwerth, she was in character. Portraying a jazz singer from a bygone era, the 28-year-old actress applied her own lipstick and was apt to break into song. It’s her willingness to “go there” that has Bennett on the speed dial of every top filmmaker from Terrence Malick to Antoine Fuqua to The Girl on the Train director Tate Taylor. Watch the haunting beauty live in this little Vs. film pearl by Ellen von Unwerth.
