Lupita Nyong'o, Amy Adams, & More Cover Elle's Women in Hollywood Issue!

Eight amazing actresses are featured on the cover of Elle‘s Women in Hollywood issue, which is hitting newsstands on October 18.

Lupita Nyong’o, Amy Adams, Helen Mirren, Kathy Bates, Kristen Stewart, Felicity Jones, Aja Naomi King, and Anna Kendrick are the women receiving covers for the November 2016 issue.

Here is what the ladies shared with the mag:

Lupita on her success despite being told her skin was “too dark for African television”: “I grew up with a very limited mirror of myself. I watched a lot of TV, but the people on it were always light skinned. And now I have a platform that takes me into people’s houses and onto the pages of their magazines.”

Amy on spending the majority of her twenties trying to find her own voice: “I wasn’t working, and I wasn’t happy. I kept trying different acting techniques, like, I’d try to act like the actresses who were getting hired. I thought maybe then I’d get a job. I spent the majority of my twenties trying to figure out who I was and where I fit in, not just in Hollywood, but also in the world. It took me a long time to sort of find my own voice.”

Helen on being mostly surprised by her later-stage career: “I have no idea why. I think it’s a lucky combination of elements, not the least of which is that I happened to fall in love with an American [director Taylor Hackford] in my late thirties, the man who is now my husband. Even though I still think of myself as absolutely British, I was here in [Los Angeles], so I was visible.”

Kristen Stewart Is 'Not Ashamed' of Her Love Life

Kristen Stewart is featured on one of eight covers for Elle‘s Women in Hollywood issue for November 2016, on newsstands October 18.

Here is what the 26-year-old actress, along with fellow cover stars Anna Kendrick, Felicity Jones, and Aja Naomi King shared with the mag:

Kristen on opening up about her love life: “I’m not ashamed and I’m not confused. Things have changed. And not just with me—we’re really allowed to encourage this new acceptance to develop and be awesome.”

Anna on the gratitude she feels for her career: “Sometimes, it feels like I’m standing in one of those rooms, in a riddle, where there are all these doors. And it’s like, why wouldn’t I keep opening them? Even if what’s behind is something kind of annoying, I’d rather find out. I think it will be hard for me to know if I should ever take a break, or focus on something else, because I feel so grateful that I get to keep opening that dang door.”

Aja on the inspiring people she works with: “I want to write, I want to direct, I want to produce—I want to inhabit what I think it means to fully be an artist. I always wanted to do that, but I didn’t think I had the tools. Now I look at Viola [Davis] and I look at Nate [Parker] and I look at Shonda [Rhimes] and it’s like, You just do it. You just begin, you know?”
