Featured Article: Ava DuVernay, Jessica Chastain & Constance Wu for Marie Claire US April 2019


Marie Claire US releases its April 2019 ‘Change Makers’ issue featuring Ava DuVernay, Jessica Chastain, and Constance Wu (out on newsstands March 26th).

The three cover stars are coming together for MC to showcase what power looks like in 2019. As actresses, activists, and filmmakers each are fighting for inclusion, representation, and equality to shape the future of Hollywood. Inside the cover story, DuVernay opens up about her personal and professional rise as a groundbreaking filmmaker and also shares what she considers her biggest career mistake so far. Wu holds nothing back on how she defines diversity and why women have to compete with one another for roles. Chastain shares when she gave up trying please others and the criticism she’s faced on being so outspoken.

Ava DuVernay On honoring her craft before fame: “I didn’t have dreams or designs that a studio would want to make my work, that any awards body or critical community would embrace my work. In many ways, that lack of attention put me in a really good place. No one’s going to watch it anyway, so I may as well make what I want.”

Constance Wu On defining diversity: “Diversity isn’t just ‘Let’s have people of color supporting this white person’s story.’”

On competition among actresses: “People say women are inherently bitchy and competitive. But anybody will be competitive if there’s only one seat at the table.”

Jessica Chastain On criticism for being outspoken: “I’ve had people tell me, ‘You need to be a little more quiet with all this woman talk.’” Image courtesy of Marie Claire. (source)


Featured Article: Salma Hayek for Town & Country April 2019


Salma Hayek is the April 2019 cover star of Town & Country, on newsstands ‪March 12‬.

Hayek is gearing up for this month’s thriller The Hummingbird Project (in theaters ‪March 15th‬) where she plays a trading tycoon who finds herself in competition with a former employee (Alexander Skarsgard) and his cousin (Jesse Eisenberg) as they battle to control a technology that could make its owner a fortune.

Inside her T&C cover story, the 52-year-old Oscar-nominated actress opens up about her marriage to fashion magnate François Henri Pinault, the joys, and struggles of Instagram, Harvey Weinstein, motherhood, and plastic surgery.

On her character in this month’s thriller The Hummingbird Project (in theaters ‪March 15‬): “They’re rare. And if you’re Mexican they’re practically nonexistent.”

On the joys and struggles of Instagram: “Funnily enough, I have 8.6 million followers…doing it on my own! I remember my first Boomerang. I did it, but it was without my head, and I got so frustrated I just posted it. I said, ‘Sorry, guys. I tried but I really can’t get it.’”

On her husband, François-Henri Pinault and what she keeps private: “[Pinault] is the best husband in the world. I get to be who I am with him, and I don’t feel that somebody tries to limit me. I’m not going to tell you [how we met]. It’s such a romantic, amazing story, but it is mine. I don’t want to vulgarize it by making it into a story to make myself interesting.”

On those who were surprised when she married Pinault: “A lot of people are very shocked that I married who I married. And some people are even intimidated now by me. But it’s another way of showing racism. They can’t believe this Mexican ended up in the life that she has, and they’re uncomfortable around me.”

On Harvey Weinstein’s discrediting her story following her 2017 New York Times article: “There is a theory that women of color are easy to discredit.”

On becoming a mother at age 41: “I think I’m a better mother because I had her [Valentina] later. But I do get tired, I’m not going to lie.”

On plastic surgery: “I haven’t done an-y-thing.” Images courtesy of Town & Country. (source)
