Kerry Washington & Kate Mara Cover 'THR' Drama Actresses Issue

Connie Britton, Anna Gunn, Kate Mara, Elisabeth Moss, Monica Potter, and Kerry Washington take the cover of The Hollywood Reporter‘s Emmy Roundtable Drama Actresses issue.

Here’s what the ladies had to share with the mag:

Kate, on her early days in the business: “My mom has always been really, really supportive of me and my sister [actress Rooney Mara] since we were kids. It’s all I ever wanted to do, and no one in my family had ever acted before. It was very new, and she had no idea how to help me go that route, how to get an agent — none of that. It was all very foreign to us. I mean, I was playing the tree in The Wizard of Oz for the first 10 years of my acting career.”

Kerry, on race playing a factor in casting: “It’s a little bit different for me because I’ll audition for something and they’ll just decide that they’re not going “ethnic” with a character, which I hear a lot. People have artistic license … that’s what casting is: fitting the right look to the right character. Whereas you could maybe lose some weight, there’s not really anything I can do, nor would I want to, about being black.”

Connie, on weight issues in Hollywood:
“We were shooting in a grocery store in Nashville, and when they called cut, there were these two older ladies standing there. One of them grabbed me and said, “You look so much bigger on camera!” And I’m like, ‘Thank you?’”

Elisabeth, on her old day job: “I worked at the silent movie theater here in L.A., but that actually was kind of cool. Though, I didn’t like cleaning the bathrooms as much.”
