Uzo Aduba Covers 'Essence' September 2016

Uzo Aduba graces the cover of Essence magazine’s September 2016 issue!

Here’s what the 35-year-old Orange is the New Black actress had to share with the mag:

On OITNB‘s impact: “People were thirsty, but they didn’t even know what they were thirsty for until they saw our show. They wanted stories that felt inclusive of their existence, where they could see themselves…I never imagined a Bantu knot-wearing woman named Crazy Eyes would do all of this. Definitely not.”

On show business: “This business will try to convince you that you’re not enough. That you’re not pretty enough, thin enough, talented enough, interesting enough, experienced enough, and I say, ‘Enough. Enough with that!’”

Laura Prepon Doesn't Think Alex & Piper Will Ever Settle Down

Laura Prepon, Natasha Lyonne, Taylor Schilling, and Danielle Brooks attend the TimesTalk for Orange is the New Black on Friday (June 24) at the Times Center in New York City.

The ladies were joined by their co-stars Kate Mulgrew, Samira Wiley, and Uzo Aduba.

During the event, Laura answered a question about her character Alex and Taylor‘s character Piper possibly ending up together.

“There will never be any settling down for Alex and Piper, which is why it’s such a fun relationship to watch,” Laura said (via EW). “It’s just one of those things where you really can’t control where your heart goes. They love each other and they hate each other, and they manipulate each other and they help each other when they need it, but the thing that’s so great is that it’s always grounded in the reality that they do ultimately love each other. You’re always kind of rooting for them because of that genuine love.”

Also pictured inside: Taylor stopping by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert the night before.
