In the latest issue of THR, the magazine rounded up a group of top actresses, 12 Years a Slave's Lupita Nyong'o, Emma Thompson (Saving Mr. Banks), Amy Adams (American Hustle, Her), Octavia Spencer (The Help, Murder, She Wrote) and Oprah Winfrey (The Butler) for the Actress Roundtable.
And everyone is freakin' stunning.
The hourlong conversation will air as a PBS special in December and
features the actresses giving advice and talking about their ups and
downs. Here a snippet that lead Oprah to tears.....
Whose career would you love to emulate?
NYONG'O: Hold on. (Takes a tissue.) When I was a
little girl, the first time I thought I could be an actor was when I
watched The Color Purple.
WINFREY: Oh my God, give me a tissue.
NYONG'O: I grew up in Kenya, and a lot of our programming was
from all over the world, and we didn't see ourselves onscreen. It was
very rare that you'd see people that look like me. And there was Whoopi
Goldberg and Oprah and everything. It's so meaningful to be sitting here
WINFREY: It is equally meaningful for me.
