We had a meeting about it and then I realized I couldn’t do it because the schedule,” Constance revealed. “They wanted to shoot in the fall and my series shoots in the fall.

'Crazy Rich Asians' Stars Explain Why Representation Matters

Michelle Yeoh, Henry Golding, Constance Wu, Ken Jeong, and Awkwafina pose for a group photo while visiting the Build Series on Tuesday afternoon (August 14) in New York City.

The stars of Crazy Rich Asians opened up about why representation on the big screen matters.

“Representation matters, because I didn’t have a lot of that growing up…In terms of Crazy Rich Asians, I was looking for this movie as a kid…it’s something audiences should celebrate, and we should have more of that, and I think that we will,” Awkwafina said.

“I grew up in Richmond, Virginia. My high school mascot was a rebel holding the confederate flag. I never got any blatant bullying, which made me internalize any feelings I had, and turned into self-blame,” Constance said about Asian culture in the west.

FYI: Constance is wearing a Michael Kors Collection look, Malone Souliers shoes, and a Building Block bag.

Crazy Rich Asians' Constance Wu Covers Fashion Magazine!

Constance Wu is on the cover of Fashion magazine’s new issue!

Here’s what the 36-year-old Crazy Rich Asians star had to share with the mag…

On feeling an obligation to represent Asians in Hollywood: “I have a pretty good capacity to talk about [the lack of Asian representation in Hollywood] in such a way that it’s as clear and insightful as it can be in the moment. I actually think it’s kind of a privilege and an honour–and an obligation.”

On her lack of cooking skills: “No way. I can’t even cook. I don’t own a rice cooker. I microwave rice from Trader Joe’s. I’m the worst Asian ever.”

On speaking her truth and not worrying about the consequences: “Of course I want to get more jobs. But at what cost? If me speaking my mind about something that I think really matters is going to take a part away from me, then that’s not the part I want. Those aren’t people I want to work with. Not because they’re not great but because we have different values and I’m going to feel like shit the whole time I’m on that set.”

FYI: Constance is wearing Dior.
