“I was demeaned so much. The way women were treated in many circumstances, I was just over it. I’d do a lot of press; the guys did nothing compared to what I was doing. I was like, ‘I’m done doing it this way’… I’ve always approached everything with a bit of cynicism and a chip on my shoulder. Not in a bad way; in a way that drove me.”

Rosamund Pike. Marie Claire. January 2019.

“I think anger can be liberating. I encourage my children to say: ‘I am angry because…’ Before you attack verbally, you could feel empowered. People are taught that anger is bad. It’s not an emotion we’re very educated in. Sometimes we feel upset or disempowered or weak and what we’re actually feeling is angry but we haven’t been taught to decipher it.”

Lily James. Marie Claire. July 2018.

“I feel strengthened by Time's Up and intrigued to see how things change. Obviously this moment has come out of a really awful time and the reality of what was being covered up and happening is harrowing. But personally, I feel braver in being honest about how I feel about things. At times I’ve felt I could laugh away things, or I was just used to certain ways people would talk to me or behave towards me. I don’t think anyone would even dare now.”

Florence Pugh. Guardian Weekend. October 2018.

“What I’ve noticed about Hollywood is, if you go out there shouting about who you are, they will love you for it. But if you go out not knowing what it is that you’re representing, and you are just a canvas, they will make you into the thing they need you to be.”

Huda Kattan. Cosmopolitan. March 2019.

“I was talking to someone who said, ‘You seem so perfect',’ and I was like, ‘Oh my God, I’m so flawed!’ People don’t realise I’m dealing with so many insecurities all the time; that part of my drive comes from all of these ridiculous insecurities that I’ve had since I was a child.”

Jack Lowden. ES Magazine. February 2019.

From theatre acclaim to A list films, the rising star talks thwarted football dreams and ignoring advice.

Anya Taylor-Joy. Marie Claire. May 2019.

“Being difficult does not mean being a dick, it means saying, ‘I’m sorry, I’m not comfortable with this, so I will not be doing it’.”

Anna Kendrick. Marie Claire. September 2016.

"I once texted my brother saying, 'I miss being a scrappy little nobody; I was more capable.' He said, 'you're still scrappy, you just get more emails. I think when you get a level of success, or just settle into adult life, you wonder, 'Am I the same person I was? Have I become complacent or less thoughtful?"

Vanessa Kirby. Marie Claire. August 2018.

“The women we portray on screen are the images that go into our psyche and so it’s up to us to fight for women [we] believe to be real. I don’t want to watch fantasy figures of women seen through the male lens; I want to see idiosyncratic, messy, vibrant, layered, weird women… because we are weird.”

Sonny Hall. ES Magazine. March 2019.

The model turned poet on rehab, writing and reinventing himself.

Amanda Seyfried. Marie Claire. August 2015. 

"I want a child, badly; I want to be a mother, badly. That's what I feel. I've been feeling it for like, two years. I'm not ready but nobody's ready. It changes everything… so how you can ever be ready for that?"

Kate Winslet. Marie Claire. November 2014.

"We've heard a lot from actresses recently about how difficult it is. But we should never be saying that it's difficult because we are so bloody lucky. It's just not an OK thing to share. It's always a juggle, but isn't it for every working mother?"

Benjamin Millepied. Matches Fashion. SS16. 

"I don't think we're in a golden age of ballet, right now. It's like, 'are you just going to do another Sleeping Beauty and names that people know instead of trying to discuss subjects that are relevant to people today?' Even musicals are more daring than new ballets."

Jessica Alba. Marie Claire. September 2014.

"I was pretty pissed off. I don’t know why it was so hard, it just was. I was pregnant first of all, and I really wanted to party like a rock star. I didn’t even know I cared about my twenties until I turned 30."

Elizabeth Olsen. Marie Claire. June 2014.

"Because my sisters were so grounded, it helped me be grounded. They never got caught up in things. I did live a charmed life. We got to go on vacations and lived in nice homes and I got to play club volleyball and ballet, which you don't realise as a kid are expensive. My mom would say things like, "Lizzie, we are not the Rockefellers!" That put things into perspective."
