ON OUR COVER Rachel Bilson has mastered an immaculate, of-the-moment, and truly effortless look. This month, the down-to-earth 26-year-old plays the female love interest in Jumper, an action-adventure/sci-fi film in which she performs most of her own stunts. "I had to surrender control and let go of a lot of fears; it had a big impact on my life," she says. "I've noticed even with clothes, I'm more experimental and trying to take risks, but still feel like myself."
