“I was at the Oscars, waiting to hear if my name was called, and I kept thinking, Cakewalk, cakewalk, cakewalk. I thought, Why is ‘cakewalk’ stuck in my head? And then, as I started to walk up the stairs and the fabric from my dress tucked under my feet, I realized my stylist had told me, ‘Kick, walk, kick, walk.’ You are supposed to kick the dress out while you walk, and I totally forgot because I was thinking about cake! And that’s why I fell,” Jennifer shared in the mag about her fall at the 2013 Oscars. More Here! »
Oprah Winfrey News, Pictures, and Videos
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.’”

“I’m an addict,” the 27-year-old actress said of alcohol. “That, in the past, was a gateway to other things for me. I tried cocaine with alcohol,” she added, but explained that she did not enjoy using cocaine. “I never felt good the next day…it allowed me to drink more. It was a party thing. People would have it, and I’d do it.”
“Having all the chaos around me that I was so comfortable with, I somewhere inside knew I wanted to go to jail,” Lindsay said about needing help. “And I think that that was subconsciously being put out there just by my actions, or lack thereof.”
When asked if she was addicted to chaos, Lindsay said, “I think so. Yeah, it was a comfortable choice to me. What was chaotic to other people in the outside looking in was normal. There is something to be said about me learning to be comfortable with things just being OK.”
“[I'm ready] to get the thing that has made me happiest my whole life back, which is to work really hard, stay focused and prove myself,” Lindsay said about looking to the future. “I have to regain trust in people, in my career, that had doubts, and I fully respect that on their behalf. As long as I stay honest in myself and do the work I’m willing to do and have been willing to do and am doing, then nothing can stand in my way. I am my own worst enemy, and I know that.”
