Doesn't she look confident and fabulous on that cover???
More than just giving us pretty pictures, however, the 34-year-old also tackles love, parental leave, and inequality in Hollywood in the accompanying interview.
Read on for HIGHlights!
On marriage to husband Adam Shulman: "He changed my ability to be in the world comfortably. I think the accepted narrative now is that we, as women, don't need anybody. But I need my husband. His unique and specific love has changed me."
On paid parental leave: "I can't believe we don't already have it. When [my son] Johnny was a week old and I was holding him and I was in the ninth level of ecstasy, I just all of a sudden thought, ‘Mommy guilt is invented nonsense.' We're encouraged to judge each other, but we should be turning our focus to the people and institutions who should be supporting us and currently aren't."
On inequality in Hollywood: "Hollywood is not a place of equality. I don't say that with anger or judgment; it's a statistical fact. And even though I've been in some female-centric films, I've never been in a film like [Ocean's 8]. It just kind of makes you aware of the ways you sort of unconsciously change yourself to fit certain scenarios.
"It's not better or worse, or right or wrong. But there are certain things you understand about one another because of experiences you have in common … it's probably easy for men to take that for granted. Just being on a set where I'm the one who possesses that ease is really something. It's a nice alternative narrative."
She's awesome for speaking out about parental leave and Hollywood inequality. We need all actresses to speak up on the latter, in particular, if real change is going to be accomplished.
