Scarlett Johansson, Laverne Cox, & More Cover Variety's Power of Women L.A. Issue

Laverne Cox, Ava DuVernay, Scarlett Johansson, and Helen Mirren take separate covers for Variety‘s Power of Women issues!

The ladies – who were also joined by Miley Cyrus for the honor – opened up to the mag – here’s what they shared:

Laverne, on her involvement with National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs (NCAVP): “What’s so exciting about the work NCAVP does is it’s also about changing the narrative of who LGBTQ people are and when we begin to change the narrative, then we reduce violence against those communities. And so much of that narrative comes from data collection. For years they’ve been the only agency tracking violence against the LGBTQ community. It is vital, vital work the NCAVP is doing to change the narrative, to change policy, to change lives.”

Scarlett, on Planned Parenthood: “It’s pretty terrifying. Somehow, a woman’s right to choose has become a subject that’s on the Republican platform. I don’t really know what it has to do with politics at all. It seems to be a deeply personal issue.”

Ava, on her diverse casting: “I wanted to make sure all girls see themselves in the film.”

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.”

Helen Mirren Supports Bill To Recover Artwork Stolen By The Nazis

Helen Mirren raises her hand to testify during a Senate Judiciary Subcommittee hearing held at Capitol Hill on Tuesday (June 7) in Washington, D.C.

The 70-year-old actress is lending her support to the Holocaust Expropriated Art Recovery Act, and reuniting victims with their lost heritage.

“When the Jewish people were dispossessed of their art, they lost some of their heritage,” Helen expressed. “Memories were taken along with the art, and to have no memories is like having no family, and that is why art restitution is so imperative.”

“The very act of Nazi expropriation was not only unjust but it was inhumane,” Helen added. “And yet, still today, it seems there are still some out there who lack the will to recognize the victims and their families as rightful owners.”

If you didn’t know, Helen starred in the 2015 film Woman in Gold, where she played a Jewish refugee fighting to recover artwork she believed belonged to her family.
