Empire's Naomi Campbell & Jussie Smollett Cover 'Attitude' Together!

Naomi Campbell and Jussie Smollett are a fierce pair while posing for the cover of Attitude magazine‘s September 2016 issue, on newsstands August 17.

Here is what the Empire co-stars had to share with the mag:

Naomi on Jussie: “Jussie is an unbelievably talented, intelligent, kind and courageous human being and I have enjoyed working alongside him. He has incredible presence and energy. We also share very similar passions such as charity work, especially in raising awareness for HIV/Aids prevention.”

Naomi on how the gay community helped shape her career and life: “I have been surrounded by gay men my entire life, and because I have grown up working in the creative and fashion industries, many of them have become like family to me. I’ve always said without gay men, I wouldn’t be where I am today.”

Jussie on how homosexuality has always been part of American culture: “This is American culture. The fact of the matter is, there was Little Richard and Sylvester but there was also Rock Hudson. This idea of homophobia, this idea of hiding, of not being able to truly be who you really are, well I hate to tell my nation, but we are American culture.”

Jussie on being out in Hollywood: “I get tired of the idea of someone telling me what my truth is. I’ve said from the beginning of my journey: I do not hide who I am. I love who I love. No one is going to tell me that somehow that is going to be my disability. I am told so many times that I should not walk truly in my blackness, that I should not walk truly in my sexuality, I should not walk truly in who I am. I say thanks but no thanks, fuck you and goodbye. I honestly think that me being myself has actually helped my career move forward.”
