Sarah Jessica Parker wears Calvin Klein on the cover of Elle magazine’s November 2012 Women In Hollywood issue as photographed by Alexi Lubomirski. The Hollywood issue celebrates Women in Hollywood, this issue is the 19th annual issue celebrating “women who have made significant contributions to the film industry.” This year they have honoured; Sarah Jessica Parker, Cate Blanchett, Elle Fanning, Shirley MacLaine, Susan Sarandon, Octavia Spencer, Uma Thurman, Emma Watson and Kristen Wiig.
Sarah Jessica Parker: “I don’t love the idea of playing another woman who loves fashion and is slightly flawed in New York City,” the 47-year-old actress told the mag about doing a similar role to Carrie in Sex and the City. “I loved Carrie, and I don’t want to do the poor man’s version of her. And while those are often the lucrative things to do, it’s more reason to look in the other direction.”
We also get a sneak peek at Octavia Spencer, Emma Watson and Elle Fanning with them each sharing:
Octavia Spencer: “Early on I had to stand up to a producer – I won’t say who, but he is famous, famous. He dressed me down in a crowded office. I told him right there in front of a hundred people, ‘You don’t know me well enough to use that tone,’ ” she says of standing up for herself. “And then I ran to the bathroom and cried like a baby. But he never addressed me that way again. And he is known as a yeller.”
Emma Watson: “I just knew, from the moment I read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone that I was meant to play that role,” she says of the character Hermione Granger. “I put one of the Potter films on the other night. And it was amazing to me that I had done all of that. I have to remind myself every now and then.”
Elle Fanning: “I can’t really remember my life without movies,” Fanning says of growing up in the spotlight. “I make movies the same way other kids play tennis or go to piano lessons. I’m trying to get better at what I want to do, just like other kids are trying to get better at what they want to do.”
