As three of the hottest ladies on television, Emma Roberts, Taraji P. Henson and Gina Rodriguez shine brightly on the October 2015 cover of Glamour magazine.
Sporting a Dior dress and earrings, Ms. Roberts, who will be starring in “Scream Queens,” explained how she got interested in showbiz- “My mom and I would stay with my Aunt Julia when I was really young, so I grew up on sets. I just found this old Polaroid of me on the set of Erin Brockovich, in one of my Aunt Julia’s super-padded dresses from the movie, with the biggest smile on my face. I’d cry when I had to leave. I loved that it felt like camp.”
Meanwhile, Gina gushed over how her show “Jane the Virgin” has been a game-changer for the Latino community- “People say this is a Latino show. But this is just a show that happens to have people with ancestors who come from other countries. None of us wants to be defined anymore. We’re human, dude. I feel like I was meant to do something—and nothing about me, genetically, is gonna stop me from doing that. Jane feels the same way.”
And “Empire” babe Henson insists Tinseltown has made a fair amount of racial progress- “I think we are making strides in Hollywood. It’s the world that I’m more concerned about…. My son grew up in a pretty much all-white situation and went to the best of schools. I saw the change when he got older and started to get that life is different for him [as a black male]. He came home crying, like, ‘Why do white people hate us? Why can’t we fix this?’ This can be fixed. I’m gonna try my best to make change.”
