Featured Article: Tessa Thompson for Marie Claire US July 2019


Tessa Thompson is the cover star of the July 2019 issue of Marie Claire US, on newsstands June 20th.

Thompson is gearing up for the release of Men In Black: International – which hits theaters this Friday, June 14th.

Here for Marie Claire’s July issue cover story, Thompson opens up about her contract negotiations for MIB, a once-in-a-lifetime spa experience with Emma Thompson, activism, and much more. Thompson also sat down for a Pop Quiz video with MC where we learned what show she can’t miss on TV, how she made her first dollar, and what her favorite couch snack is.

On contract negotiations for MIB: When we are having the conversation around how we structure our deals, I said, ‘I understand who Chris Hemsworth is and who I am not relative to him, globally and otherwise. But in the success of the film, that changes. In success, I want equity. Because then you can’t make the same argument.”

On working with Chris Hemsworth for their second project: “like [Katharine] Hepburn and [Spencer] Tracy. We’re trying to do that old-Hollywood thing: ‘It’s us again! Still like us?”

On her spa experience with MIB co-star Emma Thompson: “Like the afterlife: just a bunch of English people in bathrobes walking around getting treatments. I was like, What is my life? I’m walking the grounds with Emma Thompson?”

On the need to create fully realized roles for actress of color: “I look at actresses that are not of color, and at the opportunities that they’re presented in terms of directors wanting to make work for them. When I look at my contemporaries of color, it’s only other artists of color that are doing that in a real, robust way.” Image courtesy of Marie Claire. (source)
