Lupita Nyong’o And Melissa McCarthy Stun On The Cover Of Variety Magazine’s Annual ‘Actors On Actors’ Issue

The Hollywood actors, Melissa McCarthy and Lupita Nyong’o are the cover stars for Variety Magazine’s annual ‘Actors on Actors’ issue. In this issue, the stars talk about being a woman in the industry, female presentation, the difference doing a dramatic role and how women were portrayed in Black Panther.

Melissa, on being a woman in the industry: I feel like there’s forward motion when people are like, ‘What a difference, huh?’ I’m like, ‘Let’s not oversell it.’ But I do like seeing more women behind the camera and in front of it, and I like seeing more real women being portrayed.

Lupita, on female representation: I just did a film this summer, and the boom operator was female, and I’d never seen that. You realize how preprogrammed you are in those moments, that I’d never even considered that I’d never seen it. I feel like this conversation is really good that we’re having, that it is sustained and that we don’t congratulate ourselves too much, but we don’t berate ourselves either…it’s about the awareness and that it takes everybody to be aware that this is not just a battle for women. It’s one for men, as well, and that they have a very, very pivotal role to play to change those demographics. I’m excited about this.

Melissa, on the difference doing a dramatic role: There’s no difference. When it is a comedy I spend a lot of time thinking about how if they’re super happy and bubbly, it’s a defense mechanism. I guess I have a fascination with defense mechanisms and what people do and how they present themselves.
