They finally got it right!
Vanity Fair put six black actors on the cover of their new Hollywood Issue:
For the 20th annual Vanity Fair Hollywood Issue, the magazine celebrates a year of spectacular film with a group of distinguished actors. The cover, a three-panel foldout by Vanity Fair contributing photographer Annie Leibovitz, features Oscar nominees Julia Roberts (August: Osage County), Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave), Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club), and Lupita Nyong’o (12 Years a Slave), as well as Idris Elba (Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom), George Clooney (Gravity), Michael B. Jordan (Fruitvale Station), Naomie Harris (Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom), Brie Larson (Short Term 12), Chadwick Boseman (42), Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street), and Léa Seydoux (Blue Is the Warmest Color).
EVERY YEAR it seems like, Vanity Fair puts out a Hollywood issue that either completely lacks black actors or hides them in the inset panel so we’re glad they finally gave these brothers and sisters their due. Are you happy with the Vanity Fair selections or do you think some other folks should be on the cover who didn’t make it?
(sidenote: Clap it up for Lupita and Naomie stuntin’ on these other broads!!!)
