Olivia Wilde, Cynthia Erivo, & More Cover PorterEdit's Women in Hollywood Issue

Reed Morano, Cynthia Erivo, Zazie Beetz, Olivia Wilde, Florence Pugh, and Isabela Moner pose together for the cover of PorterEdit‘s Women in Hollywood portfolio, available now.

Here is what the ladies had to share with the mag:

Olivia on what prevented her from directing before – and why she isn’t done with acting: “Fear. For a long time, I was insecure that I hadn’t been to film school. Then I realized my career was film school, because I was shadowing brilliant directors, seeing different techniques and asking endless questions, and I continue to do that. That’s why I think I have to keep acting, so I can keep learning.”

Cynthia on how Hollywood can better serve women of color: “Start seeing them as full human beings. It’s starting to happen, but we need it to happen faster. I think for a long time we’ve been seen as one-dimensional – there’s the strong woman and the sexy woman, but one woman can be all those things. We see those roles for white women, but it’s still not filtering through quickly enough into roles for black women.”

Florence on the biggest lessons she has learned so far: “Speaking up goes a long way. People respect you for it. I think it’s very easy when you’re coming up in this industry to do anything anyone says because you feel your job might be jeopardized. It’s also scary how quickly you notice the difference in your morals, or what you now think of yourself… I have to remind myself of that, and protect myself more.”

Zazie on how fame has exacerbated her anxiety: “Fame definitely exacerbates anxiety, 100%. After Atlanta, I had the worst anxiety of my life – I’ve never experienced pain like that. [But] I am grateful in a way because it has made me passionate about mental health and letting people know they’re not alone.”
