Paz de la Huerta



Paz de la Huerta caused quite a stir this week.

The actress was arrested for assault because she threw a glass at her friend, Samantha Swetra, and socked her in the face. Apparently she had tripped while flirting with some hot guys and Samantha laughed and made a bitchy comment about Paz being intoxicated. Of course, that pissed off Paz and the claws came out. Their mutual friend Lindsay Lohan, who was there at the scene, had to help pick out shards of glass from Samantha's leg afterwards.



After reading this piece of celebrity news, I googled Paz out of curiosity. I had heard the name, but I did not know that much about the actress.

I was not disappointed.

Crazy violent temper aside, the 26-year-old actress is pretty fabbing fuckulous.



Paz grew up in the heart of New York City's art scene. The daughter of a Spanish duke and a human rights activist, she didn't stand a chance of having a normal American childhood. As a little girl, she insisted on only wearing silk vintage lingerie and spent most of her free time painting.

As a teenager, during the late 1990s, she shaved her head and joined the punk rock scene. In high school she became best friends with fellow student and budding fashion designer, Zac Posen. (She still serves as his muse today.)



It was also in her teens that she began to act. She started out with small roles in The Cider House Rules and A Walk to Remember.

By her twenties, she was an indie film darling. She was also notorious for her odd choice of boyfriends. She's dated aspiring rock star junkies to Jack Nicholson to everyone else in between.



These days, she's raising eyebrows with her intense performance in the critically acclaimed HBO series, Boardwalk Empire.



But there's more to Paz than her background and acting resume.

She's crude, she's constantly broke, and she's a bitch. Better yet, Paz simply doesn't give a damn.



From what I gather from interviews and news stories, she's the kind of woman who has the intensity of a savage and the charm of a princess. Paz knows what she wants and she gets it. She was born to royalty but is no stranger to the streets. She's a nudist and a fashionista. She's a hot mess and yet completely in control.



Long story short: Paz de la Huerta is a fucking bad-ass.

THIS lady!! Okay so I read this gossip site called Dlisted (my fav and I think you'd get a kick out of his writing--I think he is hilarious) and he always writes about her except he called her Spaz but yeah, I didn't know about her background. That's pretty interesting (and intriguing) and she is for sure the epitome of a hot mess....which she wears well!

Nicole✗✗ said...

She is indeed a BadAss!! Seriously, I am actually kind of crushing on her intriguing lifestyle. She is really beautiful but also a disaster, awesome! I adore imperfect beauties. : )

Vanilla said...

Love, Vanilla

Jasmin said...

I LOVE PAZ DE LA HUERTA! i love how she just doesn't care, how she's so feisty and is just sticking a finger up to all hollywood star conventions... she got denied access to the golden globes after party for being too drunk as well! she's absolutely gorgeous, and i love her sort of thrown together style. she's like my biggest girl crush at the moment! haha x

I love how she sounds like she simply doesn't care about any of it! The coolest thing about her is that she's so comfortable with who she is. The second coolest thing is her parents...i cracked up when I read her father was a Spanish duke and her mom was an activist, because I was like "what a match!" and "that must be a joke." Anyway, it figures that she's friends with Lindsay Lohan I guess. Too bad about the assault...but thanks for bringing this rocking star to my attention! http://thearcenciel.blogspot.com/

btd. said...

Never heard about her until then. Just by these snap shots, she looks bad ass! Great post!

Venus In Virgo said...

F$$$$ YEAH! Move over Angelina!
Although she sounds like she might be smelly along with being crude. HAHAHA rich crazy people can get away without showering and still have a following, why is that? Have a great weekend XOXO

Fashion Cappuccino said...

Wow, she's crazy but in a good way! I don't think I admire her behavior though but I have to say she's got the guts to be exactly who she is. I have to check out Boardwalk empire now that you mentioned her! xoxoxoo

Cool chick. Fun to watch, but I wouldn't want her in my life. Reckless people are dangerous and contagious.

Audrey Allure said...

I had no idea the whole situation dealt with Samantha Swetra -- I actually chatted with her at an event last fall (she also graduated from my college); Paz definitely seems like a badass haha.

love jenny xoxo said...

i didnt know any of this, very interesting!! She's definitely hardcore!

XOXO

Rachel {Inspiration in Italy} said...

Wow, very intriguing indeed! I have never heard of her. I sometimes wish I had more of an in-charge kind of personality, but on the contrary I'm quite shy and more on the mysterious side in person. I'm not the one at the party causing a scene, not the loud one, not the life of the party, not the wild-child. On the contrary I'm the one who always dresses up more than anyone else (but doesn't care) and kinda the quiet one in a corner having a one on one conversation. I'm happy with who I am now, but for years I wished I could cause a stir! Like this girl! :)

Cafe Fashionista said...

It baffles me that this is the first time that I have EVER heard about Paz - she sounds amazing. Plus, hello...she is gorg!! :)

Rachel said...

I've actually never heard of her, but she definitely sounds like a bad ass. Hahaha!

Chelsea Lane said...

so interesting to read about her! sounds like a crazy night though hehe ;)

xoxo

Kavery said...

Never heard of her before but I'm glad there are still interesting stars like her around.

Wynne Prasetyo said...

I love her badass-ness yet she still always looks classy.

Katie said...

Wow, I hadnt heard about her!

JoaNNa said...

i also didnt know much about her, yet i heard her name a lot in celeb articles. ok honestly when i first heard the name i thought it wasnt a person's name, instead a some kind of tv show or something lol.
i guess her personality doesnt reflect the meaning of her name at all. "paz" = "peace" :/

Tea For Two said...

Intriguing.

I shaved my head in the late '90s too :) And I'm constantly broke. I don't think I'm a bitch though, but I can work on it.

Samantha said...

Wow, she totally sounds badass! But the beauty in it is how she doesn't care!

I also wanted to let you know I gave you the Versatile Blogger Award, be sure to check out my blog for details! :o)

Cool!

Bonnie said...

Thanks for the sweet-ass comment on my page. It makes me feel better knowing that I am not the only one without a gaggle of girlfriends. Sometimes, I feel like I am a freak because I am more of a loner. I mean, I'm a total social butterfly in that I know tons of people, but I don't have anyone really close to me when it comes down to it -- aside from Mr. A and my mom (obviously). So thanks. :) <3

Very precocious indeed.

Imogen said...

I learn so much from you, you are my source of knowledge. Didn't know any of this before. In relation to Friday (again), yes the wannabee Usher how could I have forgotten. Totally agree with you, the part about switching lanes. Also, I saw the Bob Dylan version but I don't understand, what is it? who made it up? when was it done?

michelle_ said...

she's beautiful !
i love these picss !

Oh to Be a Muse said...

wow, what a post. paz definitely never had a chance with those genes. and she's friends with lilo? or is it just linds now?

anyway, she is giving naomi campbell a run for her "throwing dangerous objects at friends" money...

Tights Lover said...

Vintage silk lingerie? Punk rocker? Drunken brawls?

I guess we all know where I stand on her :D.

One other interesting note: Lindsay Lohan was merely and innocent spectator to the melee? Whoda guessed that one?

yiqin; said...

I think shes quite hot.

Giselle said...

Great post, I agree definitely a bad ass, she's great in Board Walk Empire.

She's BadAss for sure, but to be honest she's the kind of woman that I wouldn't want to know personally, because people like her simply mean trouble!
