Featured Article: Kaley Cuoco for Cosmopolitan US May 2018


On walking down the aisle for the second time (to fiancée Karl Cook): “I honestly thought I wouldn’t get married again. My ex ruined that word for me. I married someone the first time who completely changed. The person I ended up with was not the person I originally met. And that wasn’t my fault—that was his. I knew how much I had to give and how much I wanted to receive. I knew I just had to be patient…I had to go through a lot of things, but it brought me to Karl.”

On The Big Bang Theory­—and being the second-highest-paid TV actress (behind Sophia Vergara): “I spent my entire 20s on this show. I didn’t have to fight for pay…Knowing what it feels like [to be paid as an equal], I will always take that stand for myself.”

On being a girl boss and running her own production company, Yes, Norman Productions: “I want to be a full-on girl boss. I’ve been in the business so long, and I’ve worked with the best. I don’t let people mess with me. I want to show girls out there that you can be cool, wear yoga clothes, and run your own f—king company. You don’t have to be a guy in a suit. I want this to be a big company. I want to be sitting down a few years from now and have so many projects going. That’s what I’m excited about.”

Featured Article: Cardi B for Cosmopolitan US April 2018


On refusing to change—for anyone: “Everybody got different beliefs and different religions and were raised differently, yet you also supposed to be careful you don’t offend somebody. Everybody gets bothered about everything. Everybody got a f**king opinion about you. If I change myself, then I’m going to lose myself, and I won’t be who makes me happy.”

On her decision to stay with fiancé, Offset, after allegations of cheating: “It’s like everybody is coming down my neck like, ‘Why are you not leaving him? You have low self-esteem.’ I don’t have low self-esteem… I know I look good. I know I’m rich, I know I’m talented. I know I could get any man I want—any basketball player, football player. But I want to work out my sh*t with my man, and I don’t got to explain why. I’m not your property. This is my life…. I’m going to take my time, and I’m going to decide on my decision… It’s not right, what he f**king did—but people don’t know what I did, ’cause I ain’t no angel.”

On her past pole dancing days and respecting strippers: “People say, ‘Why do you always got to say that you used to be a stripper? We get it.’ Because y’all don’t respect me because of it, and y’all going to respect these strippers from now on… Just because somebody was a stripper don’t mean they don’t have no brain.”

Featured Article: Mandy Moore for Cosmopolitan US March 2018


This Is Us star Mandy Moore wears Bottega Veneta dress, Ariel Gordon necklace and Oscar De La Renta earrings on the March 2018 cover of Cosmopolitan US, shot and styled by Eric Ray Davidson and Aya Kanai respectively.

On This Is Us: “Before I got the part, I was making massive changes in my personal life and was looking to echo that in my work. I was waiting for something different that would allow me to dig deep. I knew I was capable, but I couldn’t get any momentum, and I had just been crushed by three failed pilot seasons. When I read the script for This Is Us, I told my agent, “I will do absolutely anything to be a part of this.””

How she’d describe her This Is Us co-stars in one word:
· Milo Ventimiglia: Boundless (+ just the greatest in every way)

· Chrissy Metz: Spectacular (one of the funniest / crazy talented)

· Sterling K. Brown: Majestic (brilliant doesn’t even cover it)

· Justin Hartley: Magnificent (+ tall + utterly handsome). (source)


Featured Article: Two Covers of Cosmopolitan US February 2018


Riverdale stars Camila Mendes (23), and Lili Reinhart (21) are a super close squad of two onscreen and IRL, and interview each other in the February 2018 issue of Cosmopolitan US (on newsstands January 09th), chatting candidly about love, sex, romance, insecurities, and a whole lot more.

The covers are photographed by Eric Ray Davidson with styling by James Worthington DeMolet.

On the plotlines they’d write for their Riverdale characters, Betty and Veronica:

· CAMILA: “I want to see [Veronica] challenged—I want to see her at her breaking point… love strong characters and they’re fun to play, but I think we’ve seen a lot of strong Veronica. It would be interesting to see her in a different light. I want to see her weak and defeated. I want to see her fail. What do you want to happen for Betty?”

· LILI: “I want to see [Betty] have a good time. Maybe not having phone calls on the reg with a serial killer, you know? I want her to let her hair down—and not just as a reaction to being depressed and stressed out. Betty didn’t even do [Riverdale’s fictional party drug] Jingle Jangle… I also want to see her explore her sexuality. She never gets to—she’s always stressed! Poor girl.”

On sexual assault and Hollywood:

· LILI: “Being a young woman in Hollywood is intimidating. I came forward on my Tumblr to talk about my sexual assault story [As a teenager, Lili went on a date with an older coworker who tried to force himself on her], and I know you’ve dealt with sexual assault as well. In my situation, I know how powerless I felt, because it was my career on the line. It’s hard not to think that your next move dictates your career—aka the rest of your life.”

· CAMILA: “Especially because in most of these accounts—at least until recently—people have spoken up and then nothing’s done about it. And it’s not just Hollywood.”

· LILI: “Not at all. It’s in every profession and at every age. It’s represented in our show—it happens to high school girls. We have to start thinking about why these men do this. And how do we teach the next generation that no one has that power over someone else?”

· CAMILA: “How to just respect other human beings. If I could go back to before I started Riverdale, I would tell myself to speak up when I felt like something wasn’t right. To use my voice and know that it’s worth hearing.”

On sexuality and insecurities:

· LILI: “I’m very open sexually.”

· CAMILA: “That’s something that we bonded about. I didn’t initially think you would be willing to talk about sex. And then once we started, I was like, “Oh my god!””

· LILI: “I love to talk about it. It’s interesting—one big insecurity I had to get past was when the person I’m with has had more sexual experiences than I have and has been in love more than I have. It’s mainly sexual though—I find myself thinking that they’re comparing me to their ex-lovers. I know it’s a stupid insecurity, because I can’t control someone’s past or dictate who they slept with before me…and besides, they’re with me for a reason.”

On what they think the biggest misconceptions about sex are:

· CAMILA: “I’ve never liked this idea of “don’t give him everything.” Like you’ve given someone all of yourself by having sex with them. What’s valuable to me is giving you my love and my intimacy. What about you?”

· LILI: “The idea that sex is going to be the same with everyone—that’s a misconception. That’s how I felt when I lost my virginity—I was like, “So this is sex!” And then you have sex with someone else, and you’re like, “Holy shit— this is so different.” What you want, what feels good to you—it’s all going to change with every partner you have.”

· CAMILA: “I want to tell [guys], “Don’t have sex at me—have sex with me.” I want them to understand that it’s so much better when we’re connected.” (source)


Featured Article: P!nk for Cosmopolitan US January 2018


P!nk wears Mugler jacket and pants, Va Bien top and David Yurman earrings on the January cover of Cosmopolitan US shot by Jason Kim with styling by James Worthington Demolet.

A famous woman I admire: “Ellen DeGeneres
Because: “She always leads with kindness.”

One thing people get wrong about me: “That I’m angry J .”

A fictional character I identify with: “Angelina Jolie in Girl, Interrupted.”
Because: “I’m batsh*t.”

My hopes for all womankind: “Equality, safety & respect.”

How I’d describe these duet partners in one word:
· Christina Aguilera: “Forgiven” + Kenny Chesney: “Charming”
· Nate Ruess: “(Pain-in-the-a**) voice!” + India.Arie: “F**kin awesome”
· Sia: “Looney tunes” + Eminem: “Genius”

On her dating advice to her daughter: “She said to me the other day, ‘How many boys can I have at once?’ And I said, ‘Excuse me?’ I said, ‘Probably none of them because they won’t deserve you. They have to be kind, respectful, they have to be chivalrous, they have to be good to their moms, they have to be good looking, they have to be funny.’” (source)
