Ashton Sanders Reveals How He Connected With His 'Moonlight' Co-Stars

Ashton Sanders gets serious on the cover of Wonderland magazine, available now.

Here’s what the 21-year-old Moonlight actor had to share with the mag:

On sharing a role with two other actors: “I feel like in some way our souls and our intuitions connected while filming without even knowing it.”

On growing up in Los Angeles: “It’s hard to tell what people want or what their intentions are. You gotta keep s**t tight…I was an other. I didn’t have that many friends within my community.”

On what he learned filming Moonlight: “One thing that Moonlight taught me is to always be and love yourself. Chiron was a beautiful soul — so vulnerable. It’s a scary thing to be too vulnerable. We are trained to walk around like…Like, when you put on a social mask to become somebody that you’re not to accommodate society or certain people, it diminishes spirit. Be authentic.”

FYI: Ashton was interviewed by Fiona Schmidt. The shoot was photographed by Sandy Kim, produced by Erica Cornwall and styled by fashion editor Zara Mirkin with makeup provided by Michelle Mungcal.

Dove Cameron Transforms Into Marilyn Monroe for Her Sexiest Photo Shoot Yet!

Dove Cameron is moving on from her Disney Channel days with this super sexy new photo shoot for Galore magazine, in which she channels the legendary Marilyn Monroe.

The 21-year-old actress is best known to audiences for her work as Amber Von Tussle on NBC’s Hairspray Live and Disney Channel’s Liv & Maddie. Here is what she shared with the mag:

On her upcoming album: “I have a lot of influences and I don’t want to give anything away about the things I’m currently working on. I’ve been promising it for so long that my fans deserve a bit of a reveal. It is definitely going to be what a log of fans would expect for me, but then I think for a lot [of fans], not what that would expect from me.”

On misconceptions people commonly have about her: “I think a lot of people think I’m either unintelligent because I’m a very happy person and I have a lot of energy or that it’s a fake happiness like fake energy. I completely understand that because it’s a lot to handle and I’m a very emotional human being. May be a bit of a broad statement, but I don’t think there’s anyone that I’ve met that I haven’t created a bit of a deep relationship with. It’s a really lovely thing to create a relation with people that might not anticipate that closeness. And that’s kind of the light of my life, getting to be close to people.”

Janelle Monae Auditioned For A 'Star Trek' Role Before Landing 'Moonlight'!

Janelle Monae keeps it chic and classy for Los Angeles Confidential magazine’s Spring Oscars issue!

Here’s what the 31-year-old Moonlight and Hidden Figures star had to share with the mag:

On once being a Hollywood reject: “I don’t know if a lot of people know this, but I auditioned for Star Trek prior to Moonlight. The casting director saw my tape and told [Moonlight director] Barry Jenkins about me. I didn’t get the part in Star Trek, but that’s why Barry reached out to me. And the rest is history.”

On her love for the stories of Moonlight and Hidden Figures: “I love telling these sorts of stories that give voice to those who are oftentimes uncelebrated, to those who don’t feel like they have a voice in America. These are characters who are considered to be outcast in society because of their sexual identity, gender, or race. I think that these two movies have opened up a new door to the possibilities of telling more unique stories.”

On her decision to wear black and white: “I just try to remain humble, remain myself. Early on in my career I decided I was going to wear black and white, a kind of uniform, to honor and pay homage to my working-class parents [who wore uniforms every day to work]. I’m so proud to be from Wyandotte County, one of the poorest counties in Kansas. I’m so happy that I serve as a reminder of that. You know, there is a quote that says you don’t have to be a part of your environment, but your environment can be a part of you. I’m in Hollywood but I’m not of it. I love just remaining an artist.”

Lin-Manuel Miranda Covers 'The Hollywood Reporter', Says He Hopes the Political Talk Doesn't End

Lin-Manuel Miranda poses in smoke on stage while covering the 2017 Oscars issue of The Hollywood Reporter.

The 37-year-old Oscar-nominated actor was one of the 19 A-listers THR chatted with – along with Dakota Johnson, Ryan Murphy, Tom Hanks & Rita Wilson, and many others – where they discussed why the Oscars still matter.

On his favorite Oscar moments: “My brain is a compendium of Oscar moments: Tom Hanks’ beautiful acceptance speech when he won best actor for Philadelphia in 1994. Roberto Benigni climbing over chairs and wanting to make love to everybody in the world when Life Is Beautiful won best foreign-language film in 1999. Kim Basinger presenting in 1990 and telling the audience that one of the best films of the year, Do the Right Thing, was not nominated. For her to take a stand, 25 years before #OscarsSoWhite, was incredible — and impressive because time has shown the prescience of that film.”

On politics: “I expect we’ll see more of that this year. It’s a political time, so I imagine the Oscars will look exactly like your Twitter or Facebook feed. Why should we ignore for three hours what we’re talking about 24 hours a day?”

On watching the Oscars with his family: “The Oscars were always a family affair when I was a kid. One sort of unintentional tradition we had every year was during the ‘In Memoriam’ part of the show. My family called it the ‘She died?’ section because my dad, who is pop culture-oblivious, would always go, ‘She died? He died? She died?!’ the whole time. So, it was very sad and yet also very funny watching my dad catch up.”

Jimmy Kimmel Is Thinking About Retirement

Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel covers Variety‘s new issue!

Here’s what the 49-year-old talk show host had to share with the mag:

On the possibility of retirement in 2019: “I know I will do the show for another three years. It’s possible that will be it. My wife’s pregnant. At a certain point, I’d like to have a little more free time. I have very little free time as it is….I think this job is a grind, and best-case scenario, a marathon. I want to go out on my own terms. If I ever feel like we’re repeating ourselves, I think it’s a good indication that it’s time.”

On possibly not being the first choice of Oscars host: “I assumed there was a long list of people they asked before me…I fully interrogated [Oscars producers] Mike [de Luca] and Jennifer [Todd], and they swear it’s not true. If anyone was asked before me, my guess would be Matt Damon and Ben Affleck.”

On the tragic deaths in 2016: “One thing I can promise: This is going to be the greatest ‘In Memoriam’ in Oscar history. Kudos to God’s booker, because he or she really scored this year.”

Paris Jackson's Late Father Michael Is Her Inspiration For Everything She Does

Paris Jackson goes high fashion for CR Fashion Book‘s 10th edition issue in a interview with director Lee Daniels.

Here’s what the 18-year-old model and actress had to share with the mag:

On her inspiration coming from her late father Michael Jackson: “All of my inspiration. I would say 99 percent of my inspiration comes from him, because he has always been my world. He is my roots.”

On future plans and potential career in music: “I write music for myself. I use it as a way to get stuff out. It’s not something I see myself following career-wise. There are so many amazing artists in my family. If I were to do it as a career, it would change how I feel about music and I don’t want that to happen.”

One quality she wishes to possess from her dad: “Definitely his strength. He was the strongest person I know and tried to do everything with a much love and kindness as possible.”

Pedro Pascal Is a 'Bad Hombre' for 'Solar Magazine' Cover

Pedro Pascal wears a tin foil solar suit while on the cover of Solar Magazine‘s third issue, on newsstands February 23.

The 41-year-old actor is dubbed a “bad hombre” on the cover, in reference to something President Trump said on the campaign trail. Here is what he told the mag:

On starring in the Kingsman sequel: “Kingsman 2 was a particularly interesting experience because it was like a god damn circus of amazing movie stars: Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore, Colin Firth, Channing Tatum… It was actually extremely terrifying, but I think that the fan boy in me is so loud, that it over road the fear of being in that company.”

On Brexit: “I was in London when Brexit happened. It was dramatic how the atmosphere of the city changed over night. It was terrifying, sad and heartbreaking to see so many people shocked and bewildered by what they hadn’t predicted in terms of that vote.”

On religion and spirituality: “I don’t know what I believe in, at all, if anything I am a complete agnostic. I think the idea of God can be really quite silly. It’s not like spirituality is a foreign subject to me, but I personally haven’t developed any kind of relationship to it, but I do know that the most important thing is being a good person.”
