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 Eyes‘ Amy 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.”
