Sofia Vergara & Claire Danes Cover 'Vanity Fair' TV Issue

Julianna Margulies, Claire Danes, Sofia Vergara, and Michelle Dockery grace the cover of Vanity Fair‘s TV issue.

The actresses from The Good Wife, Homeland, Modern Family, and Downton Abbey, respectively, posed for photographer Norman Jean Roy, while the mag’s culture critic, James Wolcott, explored “the evolutionary advantage behind television’s takeover of popular culture.”

“TV is where the action is, the addictions forged, the dream machine operating on all cylinders. [Where] movies divide and stratify; television, like sports, is the democratic includer,” he notes.

Also featured in the issue: cast members from The Big Bang Theory, Revenge, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Two and a Half Men, How I Met Your Mother, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, and Shameless.

Why do women always have to pose in bed sheets for magazines? I really don’t see the art in it.

I am bummed that Anna Paquin is not included on VF’s cover! She belongs there for her great work on True Blood.

# 3

# 4

@Amber You are so right I don’t see the art of it, its stupid and stereotypical !
@Not Happy!! Anna is not on Tv right now, least not till this summer!! wooot woot!

@amber- that the lastest thing. Actresses rationalize that they are showing they can be sexy and smart by doing photos like this but it come down to the same common denominator as Kardashian etc.

Hollywood will never change. It looks like some producers wet dream.

Awkward cover. It looks like a child’s cut and paste job.

Three great actresses and Sofia Vergara. I would have picked Elizabeth Moss, or if they wanted someone funny, Amy Poehler.

@Amber: Agreed! You never see men do any sort group body comprising shots, only the women. This’ll turn into something where one of them if not more will later comment on how they didn’t like doing it.

I guess Kerry Washington’s new show SCANDAL was to late to add to the once again sexist and lacking of color (Sofia doesn’t count.).

Maybe you ladies should check out the cover of Men’s magazines. I see men on the cover shirtless and using their bodies!
Great cover. Nice to see these talented stars getting props!

Are they having a lesbian slumber party?

What happened, were all the black actresses out of town? Oh, wait I forgot that white is right. Carrying on…
