Mary J. Blige Is Anointed the Queen for 'W' Magazine's Art Issue

Mary J. Blige gets a crown placed on her head for the cover of W Magazine‘s new Art issue.

Here is what she had to share with the mag:

On getting into character for Mudbound: “I didn’t realize how vain I was until I started working on Mudbound. Once I saw how my character, Florence, lived [in a shack on a farm in Mississippi], I thought, Wow, I’m really a vain person. When I went to the movie set to do the first day of fittings, I was Mary J. Blige: I had just done a tour and a show, so I was all, you know, I had wigs and weaves and all sorts of things going on, and Dee Rees was like, ‘No! We want to see you. You can’t have a perm, you’re going to have minimal, minimal makeup.’ And I was like, ‘What about lashes?’ And she said no, and I was like, ‘Really? Florence doesn’t have lashes?’ That part was a lot!”

On where she sees her career going: “I want, at some point, to not have to work so hard. I want peace of mind and acceptance of self, totally. I know that’s an ongoing process, so every single day I’m working on that, and it’s been hard ever since this challenge I’m having with this divorce. It was such a terrible thing. It made me see myself as ‘I have to be better than this’: I was never good enough; I was never pretty enough, smart enough. And there was someone chosen over me. It was like, I can’t stay, but it really let me see, Mary, you are better than that. You have to continue to grow.”

Kendall Jenner Brings Fashion & 'Star Wars' Together in Cool New Photos!

Kendall Jenner and other top models are bringing the worlds of fashion and Star Wars together in these cool new photos illustrated by Brian Rood.

Kendall is joined by Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, Taylor Hill, and Kaia Gerber in the editorial featured in Harper’s Bazaar‘s 150th anniversary collector’s edition.

The photos of Kendall and Taylor are inspired by A New Hope while the pics of the Hadids and Kaia are inspired by The Empire Strikes Back.

Brian opened up about how these illustrations came about.

“[The Harper's editors] came through and they went through some of the storybooks that I had done and picked out some of their favorite iconic scenes from the Star Wars films, with backgrounds everybody felt familiar with that you’ve seen a million times, and they had a list of the models in those scenes that they wanted with the outfits they wanted. You know, kind of replace Luke with Kendall Jenner. So that’s kind of how that evolved,” he said.

Paris Jackson Wants to Be a Role Model Parents Are OK With

Paris Jackson wears a shimmering dress on the cover of Stellar magazine‘s latest issue ahead of her first ever trip to Australia.

Here is what the 19-year-old actress and model shared with the mag:

On her trip to Australia: “It’s always been a dream of mine to visit the land Down Under, especially after hearing stories of my parents getting married in Sydney.”

On being a role model: “I’d like to be a role model that parents are OK with their kids looking up to … I make it very clear that I am flawed because I think it’s important to show others that, sure, I have a highlight reel like everyone else in the industry, but I’m also definitely still a human being with a sloppy behind-the-scenes. And that’s OK.”

On her recent visit to Puerto Rico where she delivered aid to the west side of the island: “My activism and my work, such as missions like [Puerto Rico], are on the top of my list of priorities. Almost everything I do comes back full circle towards this kind of work, including my job.”

Gary Oldman Reveals the Challenge of Playing Winston Churchill in 'Darkest Hour'

Gary Oldman gets reflective in his new cover shoot for Interview magazine.

Here’s what the 59-year-old Darkest Hour actor had to share with the mag:

On acting as a form of escape: “I think it was my way out, a sort of avenue of escape. The fun of it was getting away from myself and stepping into the characteristics and the behavior of someone else. It stems from that thing of not necessarily being that comfortable in your own skin.”

On the challenge of portraying Winston Churchill: “The challenge of playing someone like Winston Churchill is that there’s more footage of him than you might believe, and there’s certainly enough to read about. Next to Washington, I think he has the most biographies about him. And then there’s his own writing, which is something like 50 books.”

Benedict Cumberbatch Talks the Media, His Future in Theater, & His Slipper Collection

Benedict Cumberbatch strikes a pose on his new cover for Interview magazine!

Here’s what the 41-year-old Sherlock actor had to share with the mag:

On whether or not he trusts easily: “You do [have to], and sometimes you don’t. Sometimes during a conversation with a journalist— where you are answering things you never normally talk about, not even with some of your closest friends—you end up being quite confessional, and you don’t think about the amplification of that. No matter how fancy these journalists are, they have editors or political leanings behind their publications, which means that, basically, they’re going to shape what you’ve said into an article they’ve already written.”

“So you have to be really careful with your words. I still find that difficult, as any person who deals with the press will tell you. That’s why it’s nice, with this one, to talk to a friend. But sometimes with a coffee and a friendly smile, I suddenly start talking without thinking about how it’s going to be read.”

On doing theater again: “There are plans afoot in the not-too-distant future, but not this year.”

On how many slippers he has: “Too many.”

Ezra Miller Shows Off His Abs, Reveals What Love Means to Him

Ezra Miller gets shirtless and flaunts his sculptured physique in his new cover shoot for Interview magazine!

Here’s what the 25-year-old Justice League star had to share with the mag:

On what love means to him: “If only I had the words. I think there are a million ways to say it. But if I had to try to sum up love, I’d describe it as connective tissue, as the blood of the universe or the water that runs through all of the cosmos. The Flash’s symbol is a lightning bolt over the heart. If there’s any sort of superpower we desperately need right now, it’s this transcendental force that reminds us of union and connection. I know it sounds a little cheesy and cliché, but I think that superhero stories come from somewhere.”

On his superpowers:
“I genuinely think I have a hugging superpower. I’m starting to master the transformative hug. I have a strange memory ability. There’s a lot of information that I don’t cognitively know, but that seems to rise up at moments of need. That feels like a superpower. Something that nobody knows about me is that I discovered at a young age that I could sing in two tones. I don’t do this in performance, because it’s something very special to me. But I’ve learned that it’s a practice that goes back far in time.”

James Corden Says He & Adele Are in a Race for Reaching the EGOT!

James Corden is having some fun in the latest issue of Playboy.

Here’s what the 39-year-old Late Late Show host told the mag:

On doing The History Boys on Broadway: “It was a phenomenal time in our lives, because you’re dropped into this little world—Hell’s Kitchen, the theater district—which is the best 12 blocks in the world. There’s a high density of (a) dancers and (b) gay men. So if you’re young, straight, English and in the hottest play in New York City, you’re gonna get laid. That’s it! I’d basically pick up the women Dominic [Cooper] didn’t want, but I was more than happy with that.”

On his & Adele’s race to getting an EGOT – winning an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony: “It’s going to be a tight race. She could get an Emmy in a heartbeat, but to get a Tony, you’ve got to commit to a Broadway run, and that’s a lot. If I’m Adele, I don’t know if I’m saying, ‘Get me a nine-month run on Broadway.’ At the same time, the odds of me winning an Academy Award are the longest ever. So I have to say, I back Adele over me every day of the week.”

On the other late night show hosts:Stephen Colbert has been an unbelievable person to go through this with. Seth Meyers, you’ll never find anyone who says they don’t like him. I have lots of contact with Jimmy Fallon. I love Jimmy Kimmel, and Conan O’Brien too. He lives on my road, or rather, I should say I live on his road.”
