Keira Knightley, Reese Witherspoon, & More Cover 'W' Magazine's Best Performances Issue

The Imitation Game co-stars Keira Knightley and Benedict Cumberbatch share a cover for W Magazine‘s Best Performances issue for February 2015 issue.

Other cover stars include Wild‘s Reese Witherspoon, Big EyesAmy Adams, and Still Alice‘s Julianne Moore. Here is what they had to share with the mag:

Benedict on playing female roles at his all boys school: “Both my parents are actors, and they discouraged me from the profession. But I thought their lives were so romantic. And I did loads of plays when I was at school. It was all boys, so I got to play girls. It’s scary how epicene I was. I got the female thing down. My parents were a little worried at that point—they thought they’d lost me to the other side of the board.”

Reese on dreading her Wild sex scenes: “The sex scenes in Wild were the most explicit I’ve ever done. I dreaded those days of shooting, but they were important. Otherwise, it’s just a hiking movie—and that’s not interesting.”

    I want the Keira Knightley-Benedict Cumberbatch cover! They’re so intense!

    They’re all interesting, but I love the pic of Reese – so retro, and they made her look gorgeous. She may be a brat in real life, but she takes a good pic.

    So, just to make it clear – according to Reese, Wild is a boring movie about hiking, but thanks God, there are explicit sex scenes which make it more interesting? Best advertisement for the movie, congratulations.

    Reese, you´re looking (HYPERGORGEOUS)², yup !
    ***
    Your latest 8 Instagram-photos are all fantastic !
    Especially these photos are phenomenal:
    “Riddle me this? What´s got a hint of yellow but is red/read all over?” (= the photo we see here on jared). My answer to that question: It´s your magic yellow hair, Reese !
    On the photo “One more @wmag”: Phenomenal combination of red and black stripes, only your magic golden hair is missing, because it´s covered by the red big hat.
    On the photo “MondayMuse_Laura Dern”. Yup, Laura is the true embodiement of mother´s love. So right !
    On “Live in the sunshine, swim in the sea, Drink the wild air – Ralph Emerson Waldo -” Fantastic quote. I´m with this quote and I´m with you, Reese !
    On “Little girls with dreams become women with visions – unknown -” So right ! Reese, are you talking about dreams before waking up in bed ? Or dreams as plans whilst being awake ? I guess dreams as plans whilst being awake.
    On “So I recently discovered I have this things with floors too”:
    Yup, these honey-moon-leopard-high-heels are looking so hot
    on that floor, that reminds me of concrete arts (Mondrian).
    But these hight heels are a bit too tight for your beautiful feet !
    I guess, after carrying them, you need a 20-minutes-foot-massage, yup ! And Jim will give this massage to you – hopefully. That´s what I would do, yup !
    ***
    Again something to the animal that looks similar to a hamster and that is hearing songs by mp3-player:
    Fantastic, because that is my mood, too ! Yesterday I heard some of my finest mp3-player songs.
    I heard the Dream Time, Spirits Dance and The Ancient Rock.
    And it all made me thing of you in the movie wild, because of these beautiful scenes of your free spirit in the wilderness, yup !
