As part of the magazine’s ‘Women In TV’ issue, the four female co-stars – Reese, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley and Zoe Kravitz – each have their own individual cover, and inside are new interviews and photos with them all. For now, we have a HQ cover for you in our Gallery and Elle has posted some snippets from the interviews on their website – link below. The magazine hits American news-stands on January 17th.
Reese looks gorgeous on this cover! We may need to have a new layout up soon … 🙂
Reese Witherspoon, Zoë Kravitz, Nicole Kidman, and Shailene Woodley Spill Their Secrets
Take two megawatt executive producers, Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman. Add a pair of Hollywood’s most zeitgeisty twentysomethings, Shailene Woodley and Zoë Kravitz. Throw in a blockbuster novel about a group of upper-middle-class mothers of kindergartners roiled by sexual violence, class issues, ageism, and…murder! (That’d be Liane Moriarty’s 2014 Big Little Lies.) The result is an HBO miniseries that, even in this big-budget, high-minded small-screen era, we’ve never seen before: a seven-part thriller that looks like a movie, feels like a movie—and packs enough woman power to populate the Oscars’ front row—but grips like only episodic TV can.

On the importance of the deplorables:
As an artist, I feel more strongly than ever that my job on earth is to tell the stories of the invisibles, and women have been invisible on film for a long time. Women are wives and mothers and girlfriends, but not the center of our own stories. No one’s the good guy; no one’s the bad guy. We all do deplorable things and very honorable things.
On changing beauty standards:
Costumes, fashion, it’s all an expression of self, and the more you push the boundaries—the more that people work at creating alternative ideas—the more it changes people’s ideas of beauty. I love that people are going, Yeah, I love a hundred different kinds of beauty; it’s not all the tall, skinny supermodel. Around the world, we have to find the beauty. Now more than ever, we’re looking.
