Entertainment weekly snags 4 of Hollywood’s leading actresses for the cover of their latest issue! The 4 ladies which EW refers to as “Hollywood’s smartest, funniest, and bravest actresses just so happen to be Kerry Washington, Eva Longoria, Reese Witherspoon, and Elizabeth Banks! EW sits down with the ladies for a special unfiltered convo on what women can and can’t do and according to EW they are spilling it all!
Here’s what Kerry Washington had to say about the pressures women face (and being allowed to fail):
“It reminds me of this line that Shonda Rhimes wrote on our show that has really resonated with African-Americans. It’s this idea you have to be twice as good to get half of what they have. It’s something that most black people I talk, when they heard that line, it completely resonated with how they were raised and the messaged their parents gave them. ‘That’s just the truth.’ I think it’s the same for women. You just know, you have to be twice as good. In a way, until girls don’t have that feeling, we will not have done our jobs. That’s almost the point: to not feel the pressure to be extraordinary.”
