Julia Roberts, Amy Adams, & More Cover 'THR' Actress Issue!

Julia Roberts, Amy Adams, Octavia Spencer, Lupita Nyong’o, Emma Thompson, and Oprah Winfrey are featured on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter‘s Actresses Roundtable Issue.

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

Oprah on being terrified of Steven Spielberg during The Color Purple: “I looked directly in the camera because that’s what you do on television. I walked in and went, ‘How you doing, Miss Celie?’ And he went, ‘Cut! Cut! Cut! What is wrong with you?’ And I’m standing there, trembling. ‘Where are you looking?’ I go, ‘I’m looking at the camera.’ He goes, ‘Miss Celie’s over there!’ [I was] terrified.”

Julia on her kid not enjoying her bedtime story performances: “I try to perform bedtime stories, but my kids always say, ‘Just do your mommy voice.’”

Lupita on what made her want to act: “When I was a little girl, the first time I thought I could be an actor was when I watched The Color Purple.”

Emma on just how different people used to view actresses: “My father married my mother [actress Phyllida Law], and my grandmother locked herself in the toilet for a couple of days because ‘actress’ was still synonymous with ‘whore.’ Or, as you say here, ‘ho.’”
