Posted Tuesday October 23, 2012 1:35 PM GMT

Taking a break from her busy schedule, Liv Tyler scored herself a feature in the November 2012 issue of Vs magazine.

The 35-year-old actress adorned herself in Givenchy garb while accessorizing with Ole Lynggaard jewelry for the hot Helena Christensen shot spread. During the shoot, she dished about topics including her childhood, family and career.

A few highlights from Miss Tyler's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Vs!

On portraying a character for a movie or photo shoot:
"When I’m making a movie or thinking of a woman I’m going to play it starts with a feeling and a connection; it just happens and it grows. It can be quite powerful sometimes, like I have two people living inside of me. For a photo shoot, it’s very immediate, spontaneous, heightened creativity. I gather a lot of inspiration from my surroundings and I really enjoyed the wild energy that exists at your house upstate."

On how her childhood defined the woman she is today:
"Well, I moved around a lot between Maine and New York, my family was sort of spread out. I was raised by my mom, my aunt Annie, my grandmother, [my stepfather] Todd and then, when I was 11, I found out Steven [Tyler, ed.] was my dad. I think the definition of what a ‘normal’ family is never was normal to me."

On her love for music:
"I sing morning, noon and night to myself, and a lot of the times out loud — I can’t help it! I even think in song, everything relates in music to me. I have always dreamed of doing a musical like Sweet Charity, High Society or Cabaret. Sometimes I think I was born in the wrong era of movie making. I would have loved to have been owned by a studio and had one picture after the next filled with beautiful sets, incredible costumes, singing and dancing. I’m learning how to tap dance this summer out in my farmhouse in the country."
