Hugh Jackman Reveals Why 'Greatest Showman' Took Seven Years to Make

Hugh Jackman flashes a smile on the cover of People‘s January issue.

Here’s what the 49-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On why The Greatest Showman took seven years to make: “I think just the climate of Hollywood was like, ‘There’s just too many risks. There’s too much to do. It’s too much, let’s not do that anymore.’ I mean, there’s been musicals, obviously: Les Mis, Mamma Mia. But an original movie musical is really hard. So that was, yeah, seven years ago, and here we are.”

On how P.T. Barnum influenced the film: “We asked ourselves, ‘What movie would Barnum want to make?’ Now, he’s not gonna do a stuffy period piece with music from the 1850s. He wants my daughter Ava to go, ‘Oh, loved that song.’”

On the musical’s composers Benj Pasek and Justin Paul: “They were tough on me! They said to me, ‘You need to get a new singing teacher…We want you to have a more pop sound’…That was two and a half years before we began. That was the level of detail they had.”

Niall Horan Thinks He Used to be the 'Worst Dressed Man on the Planet'

Niall Horan looks so handsome in a shot from his photo shoot with Esquire!

Here’s what the 24-year-old musician had to share with the mag:

On his response to online haters: “Back in the day it used to be that you’d read stuff and be like, ‘Aw, is that what they think of me?’ But the way the world turns is you can do no right, so I’ve just gone past the point of caring. Apparently all these people who are writing to you are perfect, so they have every right to say that to you. So they can go f**k themselves.”

On his style while in One Direction: “A while ago I was probably the worst dressed man on the planet. Obviously some people can pull it off, and some people can’t. I happen to be one of those people that can’t. But I was 16 and 17, so you kind of let yourself get away with that.”

On his fashion influences: “I guess what I’m saying is kind of classic. Classic American rock. They did it pretty good back in the day­, the ‘70s and ‘80s. Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty and bands like The Eagles, they always looked really cool and really suited to that time. And I think that time in fashion is coming back again.”

Lupita Nyong'o & Letitia Wright Reflect on Being in 'Black Panther'

Lupita Nyong’o and Letitia Wright are two of the bad-ass women you’ll see in the upcoming Marvel movie Black Panther and they’re interviewing each other for a new Teen Vogue feature!

Here is what they had to share with the mag:

Letitia on her Black Panther character, Shuri: “I liked how intelligent she was. She’s a teenager, but her age doesn’t define who she is. People think, You’re young; you don’t know what you’re talking about, but she didn’t let that be a limitation. I instinctively picked up [that Shuri] had something meaningful to say”

Lupita on why Black Panther appealed to her: “Well, when Black Panther was announced about two years ago, Chadwick [Boseman] was signed on to play T’Challa, and I remember thinking, ‘Oh, snap, that’s going to be a moment!’ So when director Ryan Coogler started to talk to me about being a part of it, I was so excited….It had social and political relevance. My character, Nakia, was a departure from the character you see in the comic books. She’s this independent woman, super patriotic but also very questioning of her society, and I liked that. With her complicated relationship with T’Challa, I knew it was going to be kind of sexy, and I was like, ‘OK, I definitely want in.’”

Here’s what the 46-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On advice he received from Mel Gibson: “He passed on a lot of movies, a lot of really good movies. And he told me, ‘You should get it while there’s time. Get it while it’s there. If you’ve got an opportunity, work.’”

On his work ethic: “The only way to be the best is to keep working like you got nothing. Keep getting after it, and be more and more aggressive, more and more focused every day. I don’t know. I have more drive and desire now than I ever have.”

On his current workout: “I don’t play basketball anymore because I don’t want to roll an ankle and miss a movie or screw up my golf game…I’m doing [the Versaclimber] twice a day and jumping rope….If I wake up at 3:30, I can go to the golf course at 6:30, be done by 8:30, and then be home and then do the rest of my stuff: work with a physiotherapist, get treatment, hit the cryo chamber.”

'A Wrinkle in Time' Cast Covers Time's New Issue Together

A Wrinkle in Time‘s Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, and newcomer Storm Reid are on the cover of Time‘s latest issue.

Here’s what the cast had to share with the mag:

Oprah, on making the movie: “I felt like we were making the new Wizard of Oz for another generation.”

Reese, on director Ava DuVernay wanting a diverse cast: “I’ve never seen somebody demand inclusiveness like that. It’s just a different perspective, and you don’t get that unless we start to have powerful filmmakers of different colors, different genders. You’re just gonna have the same 20 dudes making the same 20 movies over and over and over again.”

Storm, on why she wanted to be in this movie: “Before I got this role, I wanted there to be more little girls that look like me on TV and in lead roles.”

Margot Robbie Has Never Been More Nervous for Fans to See One of Her Movies!

Margot Robbie is getting Oscar buzz for her work in the movie I, Tonya and she says she has never been more nervous for the world to watch one of her films.

The 27-year-old actress opens up in the latest issue of Stellar magazine. Here’s what she shared:

On being a producer on I, Tonya: “I have never been so nervous for people to see a movie in my entire life. We go all out in this movie. So, are people going to get it? Are they going to respond to it? I mean, is the public going to hate it and the critics love it, or the other way around? Or are they all going to hate it and no-one loves it? The weight has never been on my shoulders in this way. It’s always been shared around. And to be
 a producer on this [means] I can’t blame anyone else if people don’t like it. I can’t say, ‘The filmmakers made some bad choices!’ Because, well, I was a part of all those choices. If this sucks, it’s my fault in large part.”

On returning to Australia: “Next year’s goal is to be filming something back home in Australia. That’s our goal. We have got a lot of good things in development, amazing Aussie writers and Aussie directors, and that’s what I am most excited about for 2018: coming home.”

Alison Brie Says It Was 'Special' to Make a Movie with Husband Dave Franco!

Alison Brie is opening up about getting to work with her husband Dave Franco on their new movie The Disaster Artist, which is in theaters now.

The 34-year-old actress, who also stars in the Netflix series G.L.O.W. and in the new movie The Post, is on the cover of The Edit‘s new issue.

“[Dave and I] spent the first few years of our relationship on opposite sides of the world, because I was shooting TV shows that were based here [in LA], and he was shooting movies that were in Berlin, London, places like that. It was kind of great, because on my breaks I could travel the world, but it’s hard to be apart from your partner, so to shoot this with him and James was very special,” she told the mag.
