It’s that time of year again when ELLE magazine sets out to celebrate all the ladies who have made enormous strides in the film industry over the last 12 months, with their 24th ‘Women in Hollywood’ issue.
Movie megastars Jennifer Lawrence, Margot Robbie, Jessica Chastain, Laura Dern, Tessa Thompson, Riley Keough, Cicely Tyson and Kathleen Kennedy all grace the cover of the November 2017 issue.
Within the issue are interviews with all the stars in which they discuss their personal experience as a female in Hollywood. Margot Robbie reveals how her time as an actress inspired her to take more control of her work, saying: “I’d always wanted to direct and write, but I got to a point as an actress where I felt like I was everyone’s puppet. I thought, Why don’t I get a say in the art I’m making?”
Meanwhile, Jurassic Park Producer Kathleen Kennedy, 64, reflected on what it means to be a female influencer in the industry, telling the magazine: “I don’t like to step in front of the camera, but if I can be a role model for women to recognize they can make it in film, I’m happy to do that whenever I can.”
