Julia Roberts, Amy Adams, & More Cover 'THR' Actress Issue!

Julia Roberts, Amy Adams, Octavia Spencer, Lupita Nyong’o, Emma Thompson, and Oprah Winfrey are featured on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter‘s Actresses Roundtable Issue.

Here is what the ladies had to share with the mag:

Oprah on being terrified of Steven Spielberg during The Color Purple: “I looked directly in the camera because that’s what you do on television. I walked in and went, ‘How you doing, Miss Celie?’ And he went, ‘Cut! Cut! Cut! What is wrong with you?’ And I’m standing there, trembling. ‘Where are you looking?’ I go, ‘I’m looking at the camera.’ He goes, ‘Miss Celie’s over there!’ [I was] terrified.”

Julia on her kid not enjoying her bedtime story performances: “I try to perform bedtime stories, but my kids always say, ‘Just do your mommy voice.’”

Lupita on what made her want to act: “When I was a little girl, the first time I thought I could be an actor was when I watched The Color Purple.”

Emma on just how different people used to view actresses: “My father married my mother [actress Phyllida Law], and my grandmother locked herself in the toilet for a couple of days because ‘actress’ was still synonymous with ‘whore.’ Or, as you say here, ‘ho.’”

    Go Jules!!! Love this group…except I didn’t particularly think Oprah was especially great in ‘The Butler’

    Take notes Vanity Fair. This is what a cover filled with ACTRESSES looks like. Vogue may want to take a few notes as well.

  • Mimi

    I know there are best supporting actress contenders there but Cate Blanchett is going to destroy all of them during awards season.

  • Cate

    I love these roundtables although I don’t like the changes the Hollywood Reporter has implemented this year. Emma Thompson is so much fun! She’s always great at these things.

  • Beaumont

    Actually Julia Roberts shouldn’t have posed with the others – yes, the others !
    She should have been photographed separated in a different day and her image to be inserted into the picture.
    Just because she’s a star and that’s how a star must be treated -
    not like the others !
    Who are these women to be with Julia, talking and posing ?
    Amazing hair, Julia my friend ! Win your second Oscar !

  • RachelMoon

    Oprah never wished death on anyone liar! She said the world will be better off when the racists die off which is the truth!
    Oprah was a revelation in The Butler, a truly marvelous performance.

    Nicole Kidman—The only real movie star left, beautiful, fascinating actress !!!

  • Devoted

    @Patricia: You totally right !!!

  • LOLa

    Sure Oprah in the center of the picture, sure Oprah was the center of attention during the interview. Oprah, Oprah, Oprah everywhere. I am so sick of her!
