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.”

Viola Davis Tells 'InStyle' Why She's Over Her Fear of Aging

Viola Davis shows off her stunning smile on the cover of InStyle‘s January 2016 issue, on newsstands December 11.

Here is what the 50-year-old How to Get Away with Murder actress had to share with the mag:

On marriage: “I’ve learned that it’s not always about you. Marriage is a dying to yourself, but [also this] renewing and being born into a state of commitment, of understanding the value of partnership in life.”

On African-American women in Hollywood: “Unwritten racial casting rules absolutely still exist. I’ve played many best friends, crack-addicted mothers, next-door neighbors, or professionals with no personal lives. It goes back to perception. There is a limitation to how we are seen.”

On aging: “What’s released me most from the fear of aging is self-awareness. I’ve never determined my value based on my looks or anything physical. I’ve been through a lot in life, and what has gotten me through is strength of character and faith.”
