Diversity is the key word for Vanity Fair’s 25th Hollywood issue.
The annual issue features 11 stars — Elizabeth Debicki, Rami Malek, Chadwick Boseman, Saoirse Ronan, Nicholas Hoult, Tessa Thompson, John David Washington, Henry Golding, Yalitza Aparicio, Regina King and Timothée Chalamet — who are all pioneering and modernizing Hollywood’s film industry.
“It is an era of enormous change in the film industry. Each performer here has a unique Hollywood story that says much about where the business has been—and where it is going,” the publication stated.
Together, the 11 featured stars have been in 150 films. From “Roma,” and “Mary Queen of Scots,” to “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “If Beale Street Could Talk,” the actors gracing the cover have dominated the Academy with their outstanding talent.
“Black Panther” star Chadwick Boseman explained, “the actors who are within the pages of this issue give new breath to what Hollywood is and what Hollywood is going to be. And that’s in terms of diversity, ethnicity, gender, and the type of work that we’re doing.”
Timothée Chalamet, who made waves this year with his work in “Beautiful Boy,” humbly called this cover a “pinch-me moment.” — “Vanity Fair is an American institution, so to be in it in any capacity is an honor, but to be on the cover with actors I really admire and respect, it’s a pinch-me moment.”
