Claire Foy, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Angela Bassett & More Actresses Discuss Being a Woman in Hollywood

Angela Bassett, Claire Foy, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Elisabeth Moss, Thandie Newton and Sandra Oh are all featured on the cover of THR‘s annual dramatic actress roundtable issue.

Here’s what the actresses had to say…

Claire, on her decision to speak about The Crown‘s gender pay gap openly: “I [could have] kept my mouth shut and said, ‘I have nothing to say, I’m a robot.’ I was part of a really incredible show that I’m really proud of and grateful for, but that shouldn’t stop me from having an opinion about something that I have been brought into the center of.”

Maggie, on HBO’s focus on gender parity after Netflix’s blunder with The Crown: “Honestly there was so much talk, and where was the action? And then I just get a call going over the bridge to Brooklyn saying my salary now is way higher than I ever considered it would be, and it’s because of these conversations. At first, I was like, ‘Wait, this is not fair. Why do I get to win the lottery?’ And then I went, ‘No, it’s been unfair to the point where I’ve digested it and accepted it without ever considering that it could or should be equal.’”

Angela, weighing in when the other ladies spoke on being asked to use sexuality to further their career: “I’ve not been asked to use my sexuality in my career. Not as a black woman.”

Thandie Newton has a major red carpet moment while attending the premiere of Solo: A Star Wars Story during the 2018 Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday (May 15) in Cannes, France.

The actress wore a custom Vivienne Westwood gown that featured all of the black Star Wars characters printed on the fabric.

“For tonight’s #StarWars premiere, Thandie had the brilliant idea to make a dress covered in a print with photos of iconic black @starwars characters!” her stylist Erin Walsh wrote on Instagram. “She wanted to celebrate her role in the iconic history of the franchise!! She is the first black woman onscreen in a @starwars movie with a leading role.”

Photographer Christian Hogstedt photographed action figures from Thandie‘s collection and then the fashion house made a print on a gown that is totally eco friendly.

Some of the characters seen on the gown include John Boyega‘s Finn, Billy Dee Williams‘ Lando, Samuel L. Jackson‘s Mace Windu, Forest Whitaker‘s Saw Gerrera, and Hugh Quarshie‘s Captain Panaka.
