Emma Stone Covers 'Entertainment Weekly'

Emma Stone Covers 'Entertainment Weekly'

Emma Stone, Viola Davis, and Octavia Spencer cover Entertainment Weekly‘s latest issue, on newsstands Friday (August 5).

Here’s what the ladies of The Help had to share:

Octavia, on loving her role in the film:“I am thrilled to be playing this woman. She is a human being with the breadth and depth of emotions, and she is a contributing member of society. It should not be ‘Why is Viola Davis playing a maid in 2011?’ I think it should be ‘Viola Davis plays a maid and she gives the f—ing performance of her life.’”

Viola, on hoping people give the film a chance: “There are few movies coming out this year with African-American women in them. Very few are being made. Black actresses have enough obstacles in our way without someone protesting an opportunity for us to show our work on screen. It’s one thing if you go see The Help and you don’t like it. But give it a chance!”
