Emmy Rossum, Julianna Margulies, January Jones, Kyra Sedgwick, Claire Danes, and Mireille Enos grace the cover of The Hollywood Reporter‘s latest issue, which kicks off the mag’s Emmy season.
Here’s what the drama actresses had to share:Mireille, on her most nervous moment:
“Is it wrong to admit that having to kiss Brad Pitt was very, very terrifying? It was [in] World War Z, which I shot last summer and it was the second day of shooting.”January, on playing ‘Fat Betty’:
“I started this season of Mad Men eight months pregnant, and I finished it with a 5-month-old [son Xander]. It was bizarre. And I was in seven hours of prosthetics every morning, trying to rip off a fake chest piece so I could breastfeed. I loved [the fat suit].”Claire, on nudity:
“I don’t love stripping down, but I also don’t love the idea of being kind of coy or prudish for the sake of it.”Kyra, on husband Kevin Bacon:
“He was the one who supported my doing The Closer. It was a huge commitment and life-changing thing for both of us. We always read each other’s scripts; he often follows my advice, and sometimes I’m wrong, but he’s not. And I’m so grateful we have that, I really am.”Emmy, on her Shameless nude scenes:
“When I got on set – I’d never done nudity before – I was like, ‘Oh, everyone here is human.’ Some days you feel like, ‘Oh, God. I wish we were shooting this last week, I felt so skinny.’”Julianna, on a tough filming schedule:
“In what we do with episodic work, it’s a nonstop train. I mean, there are days when, I was saying this to Kyra before, I had worked until midnight and then I had to go and shoot something else at five in the morning. I looked at my husband and I was like, ‘This is why Judy Garland was on pills. I can’t keep this up. I need a pill!’”
