Brit Marling represents Glamour May 2013 feature. The Community actress talks dumpster diving in in this issue. her upcoming action/drama “The East” will arrive in theaters May 31st. The twenty nine year old has been photographed by K.T Auleta. She talks about how far she would go for a role in a movie and finally revealed the true meaning behind her unusual name.

On her name:

“I was originally going to be Borganny – what were my parents thinking?! Thankfully, they named me after my great-grandmother instead. When I was young, I thought Brit sounded kind of boyish. So I’d tell people to call me Franny. I guess it was an early attempt at acting. Now I love my name. It just took a little while.”

On traveling without money and dumpster diving for her new film:

“We wanted to have a summer adventure. We learned to train-hop and dumpster dive, which sounds gross, but I actually made restaurant worthy vegan meals out of food from a dumpster.”

On her family’s reaction to her choices after college:

“By that point my parents already thought I’d lost my mind. I’d studied economics and art at Georgetown University, then passed on an investment-banking job and headed to Cuba to make a documentary. Later I moved to L.A. to become an actress. The other day I was thinking about what I’d do if I stopped acting, and I couldn’t answer the question. So I think I’ll just stick with it!”
