Everybody looks amazing on the cover.  When each one of them was asked about the career that they want to imitate, Nyong’o said:

“Hold on. (Takes a tissue.) When I was a little girl, the first time I thought I could be an actor was when I watched The Color Purple.”

Then Winfrey replied, “Oh my God, give me a tissue.”

Nyong’o continued:


“I grew up in Kenya, and a lot of our programming was from all over the world, and we didn’t see ourselves onscreen. It was very rare that you’d see people that look like me. And there was Whoopi Goldberg and Oprah and everything. It’s so meaningful to be sitting here beside you.”

Winfrey seems to agree and replied, “It is equally meaningful for me.”

Who’s your favorite among these actresses?
