Firstly, this isn't an interview. This is a section specific for celebrity interviews so that readers can get a hands-on experience of what the celebrities are directly saying. Secondly, this has a lot of great info but it needs a lot of work. You should focus writing about her biggest movies and the most important events in her life rather than something as unnecessary as her physical appearance - instead of providing all that useless info, just produce a picture and that would be much easier. Good luck with other work.
