Julianne Moore and Lupita Nyong’o take the cover of Variety’s annual Power of Women issue, which will hit newsstands tomorrow.

Also featured on separate covers are designer Vera Wang, ballerina Misty Copeland and Fox News correspondent Megyn Kelly. Here’s what they had to share with the mag…

Julianne, on gun control: “[It's] not an anti-gun movement or a partisan movement — this is about safety.”

Lupita, on Mother Health International for African relief: “It’s a tragedy that women’s bodies are used as tools of war. When that happens, the trauma of war affects birthing.
