Check it out below all while asking yourself “How do people come up with this sh*t?”
ELLE revealed the actresses they tapped for their 6th annual “Women In TV” issue yesterday January 12th, and this year’s covers are a true representation of the diversity of women within the current TV landscape.
Quantico star Priyanka Chopra, Viola Davis of How To Get Away With Murder, Julia Louis-Dreyfus of VEEP, Empire’s Taraji P. Henson, and Olivia Wilde of HBO’s new series Vinyl.
The issue hits newsstands nationwide on January 19th. The five talented and beautiful cover stars discuss life, love, their careers, and being a woman in Hollywood.
Golden Globe Winner Taraji P. Henson had this to say about her portrayal of “Cookie Lyon” on FOX’s hit ‘Empire’.
“It was very important to me that [Cookie Lyon] not be sassy and neck-rollin’ and eye-bulgin’ and attitude all the time. Everything she does is coming from a place of fighting for her family. That’s why she’s not a caricature.”
On whether woman should have to choose between building an empire and love, Chopra revealed to Elle,
“Why should a woman have to pick between global domination and having the love of her life?”
Davis went even deeper, by pointing out how the media continues to perpetuate ideas and images of women that are the furthest thing from the truth.
“We’ve been fed a whole slew of lies about women. If you are anywhere above a size 2, you’re not having sex. You don’t have sexual thoughts. You may not even have a vagina. And if you’re of a certain age, you’re off the table.”
While Elle’s cover may be diverse and women seem to be faring better on the small screen, Hollywood still has a long way to go, something Dreyfus touched on when speaking with Elle.
“Go to the movies—how many good scripts are you really seeing out there? How many good, meaty roles are there for women within those scripts? Not tons of them. Right now there are so many shows on with strong, complicated, powerful, not-so-powerful, interesting human beings who are women. And I am thrilled to be playing one of them.”
