Featured Article: Zendaya for Marie Claire US September 2018


At 21, Zendaya has never been shy about using her voice, whether she’s calling the shots at Disney or clapping back on social media. For Marie Claire US’ September 2018 issue, she opens up to Janet Mock about re-rewriting the Hollywood narrative, inspiring others to do the same, stepping out of her Disney comfort zone, and how she deals with rejection.

She wears Max Mara coat and Chanel earrings on the cover photographed by Thomas Whiteside with styling by Joseph Errico. Hair and makeup by Larry Sims and Allan Avendano.

On stepping out of her comfort zone, from Disney to feature films:
“…I’m coming from this very different world of Disney. Having been consistently on a TV show, I felt stagnant. Not having that anymore, I am being seen as a real actress, doing what makes me feel pushed and motivated. I don’t necessarily think comfort is always the best place to live in. I’ve really found the power in just doing what makes me happy.”

On creating opportunities for more actresses of color:
“What’s important to me is knowing we [Yara Shahidi, Amandla Steinberg] are not the only black girls in the industry. We kind of have been painted as the face, and that’s not the truth. It’s important to have a conversation where we are opening the door to our peers and more black women who don’t necessarily look like us.”

On changing people’s minds and dealing with rejection:
“I’m an actress. We’ve all experienced getting the no’s, and that’s okay. I always tell my theatrical manager, ‘Anytime it says they’re looking for white girls, send me out. Let me get in the room. Maybe they’ll change their minds.’ And honestly, if there’s a part that I didn’t get or that I really wanted at the time, sh*t always ends up working out.”

On how Olivia Pope liberated her to make her own decisions:
“I call it my Olivia Pope gut. I just had to be in tune with that and be like, ‘Listen, whatever feels right, go after that.’ There’s something liberating about making decisions for yourself.” (source)

Featured Article: Emily Ratajkowski for Marie Claire US June 2018


Emily Ratajkowski gets radical for the June 2018 issue of Marie Claire US, on newsstands May 17th. From mastering social media to calling for social change, the outspoken actress and model has always been guided by what felt true to her. And she’s inspiring young women to claim ownership of their own bodies, sexuality, and agency.

On being taken seriously in Hollywood: “It’s actually something I’ve thought about a lot without ever saying seriousness in my head. I care a lot. I think I freak people out sometimes going into meeting with Hollywood producers…with f*cking guns blazing. I had something to prove, and it had very little to do with my acting ability or the way I looked. It was about the Take me seriously. Look me in the eye.”

On body confidence: “Boobs are funny. They hurt sometimes, and sometimes they’re the thing that makes me feel most powerful. They’re a key to my sexuality. They’re all those things.”

On marriage and making her own decisions: “People came after my marriage, like, ‘Wow. I give it three weeks.’ I’m like, ‘What?’ No one can take women seriously on any choices that they make, especially if they’re unique to them and they don’t play into the way we think women should get married. It’s a constant writing-off.”
