Amy Poehler, Mindy Kaling, & More Cover 'Elle' TV Issue!

Amy Poehler, Mindy Kaing, Zooey Deschanel, and Allison Williams are all featured on separate covers of Elle‘s Women in TV issue, on newsstands January 14.

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

Amy on heading into directing, production, and writing: “I like to do things that challenge me and make me nervous. You learn early as an actor that creating your own material is the only way to have any control. Hollywood is like a bad boyfriend. You can’t stand around and wait to be asked to dance.”

Allison on where she wants her career to go: “I want to play a villain. I want to play a romantic heroine. I want to play someone who’s on heroin. There’s nothing I don’t want to do. I want to play a guy at some point. I’ll gain 100 pounds, I’ll cut my hair off, I’ll do whatever. I’m not precious about any of it.”

    Elle not like brown on their cover or something? Why is only Mindy in B&W?

  • eerie.

    @jin: wow i thought the EXACT same thing. why is she the only one in b&w smh

  • lee

    I had the same thoughts as well. If Mindy had the exact same face and was a white woman I guarantee her cover would not be in black and white. Hollywood and there bullsh*t

  • Sarah.

    Why is Mindy the only one in black and white? Beautiful picture of her though! And Amy looks amazing!

  • lol

    God, Allison Williams is so annoying! Honey, only nepotism got you that far. You don’t have the acting chops to play anything other than a self-absorbed prude hipster.

  • allison

    Don’t like brown nor bigger size woman. (Not saying Mindy is fat but she is not a size 6.) All the other ladies also show the body. For Mindy it is only her face.

  • marianne

    @allison: the funniest thing about all of this is that she has the best looking cover despite her’s being the only b&w one for unethical reasons. seriously, mindy killed the cover. allison is a joke, she should thank her father everyday for being this fortunate cause she is a terrible actress, i like both amy and zooey but they have had nicer covers than these.

  • Kelly

    Ugh, Zooey Deschanel is like Urban Outfitters circa 2006 try hard cutesy. “Look at me! I have bangs, I’m in polka dots, I tap dance, I love cupcakes!” Love Amy and Mindy though.

  • Pam

    Mindy Kaling has the best cover but major side-eye at the B&W choice. SMH.

  • mel

    @Kelly: I agree. She’s so f-cking quirky and her acting feels so forced and unnatural! If we had to spend 500 days with Zooey, we’d probably hang ourselves by day 5.

  • Stacy

    Allison is the worst actress on Girls. She’s more insufferable than Lena Dunham.. She should get the boot before she ruins what’s left of the show.

  • what a joke

    @Stacy: and allison is bestie’s with that screamer of a singer katy perry. two peas in an untalented pod. allison is nepotism at its finest.

  • girlbye

    You know what’s interesting? Readers/consumers noticed IMMEDIATELY that there was something wrong with mindy’s cover. so why do people who do this sh*t for a living, who see magazine covers day in and day out, who i’m sure were in these meetings discussing these covers didn’t see anything wrong with it?

    WHERE’S ROBERTA MYERS???? WHERE IS JOE ZEE? why aren’t you collecting your people?

  • girlbye

    also, i do agree that mindy still has the best cover.

  • Not Slick

    They did this on purpose to Mindy because Variety magazine did the exact same thing to Kerry Washington and their “Power of Women” covers. Kerry’s was the only one in black and white and she was the only black woman. Hollywood can kiss my….you know what.

  • Stacy

    Mindy was cropped because she’s fat
