Taraji P. Henson, Julia Louis-Dreyfus & More Cover Elle's Women in TV Issue!

Taraji P. Henson, Viola Davis, Olivia Wilde, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Priyanka Chopra are Elle magazine’s Women in TV to watch for the February 2016 issue.

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

Julia, on roles for women in movies vs. TV: “Go to the movies—how many good scripts are you really seeing out there? How many good, meaty roles are there for women within those scripts? Not tons of them. Right now there are so many [TV] shows on with strong, complicated, powerful, not-so-powerful, interesting human beings who are women. And I am thrilled to be playing one of them.”

Viola, on the lies about women: “We’ve been fed a whole slew of lies about women…if you are anywhere above a size 2, you’re not having sex. You don’t have sexual thoughts. You may not even have a vagina. And if you’re of a certain age, you’re off the table.”

Taraji, on Cookie: “It was very important to me that she not be sassy and neck-rollin’ and eye-bulgin’ and attitude all the time. Everything she does is coming from a place of fighting for her family. That’s why she’s not a caricature.”

Taraji passed out cookies while she made her way to the stage to give her acceptance speech but it was totally “spontaneous.”

“There were cookies on the table!,” Taraji expressed (via PopSugar). “I just did not expect them to call my name. I never did. I just never put that much on it . . . you just never know how it’s going to come out. You don’t. When they called my name . . . I was like, ‘Well, cookies are here. I guess I should hand them out!’ [Laughs] I don’t know, it was just a spontaneous moment.”
