On the night of the Los Angeles movie premiere of her new movie, “Let’s Be Cops,” Nina Dobrev was getting dolled up in a colorful Zuhair Murad minidress, Salvatore Ferragamo heels and Tiffany & Co. jewels, her mood decidedly giddy.
“I like to get my friends together and make it a day of getting ready for a big event, because I’m not here very often — ‘Vampire Diaries’ shoots in Atlanta,” she says. Dobrev’s date? Her best friend, “Dancing With the Stars” pro-turned- actress Julianne Hough, who was on her way over to get her hair and makeup done as well. “We’ll hang out, get ready, get in the car and go. We’ll make it a chill, relaxed, fun environment.”
The film, released last?week, is Dobrev’s first foray into comedy. She plays Josie,? a waitress who befriends two customers (Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr.) who go to a party wearing police uniforms that are so convincing, they end up impersonating cops.
“I’ve always loved the genre, but I’ve never done comedy,” the 25-year-old says. “It was good for me to start with this one, because I didn’t have the pressure of carrying all the comedy on my shoulders — the boys have the jokes, for the most part.”
