-Kidman,zTheron, and Robbie cover" W" for their new film" Bombshell"which opens in theater's on December 13.
- Theron " Like most people,I first noticed Megyn at the Republican debates. I loved when she took it to Txxxp. I admired her sharpness and witt. She was fearless. But when my production company received the script for " Bombshell" I was conflicted about playing her. I personally felt uncomfortable with some of the stuff that she had said. But ultimately, I understood her strength and ambition. Megyn herself says" I know I'm tough". - and that's something I've heard about myself. People told Megyn she had sharp elbows, that she was hard. I've heard people judge me and say the same things about me".
- Kidman(Who plays Gretchen Carlson) " I like that our story is a study of how woman relate to a toxic environment. We want to tell the complicated stories about woman,and that's very difficult. The world likes clear cut winners and losers,abusers and victims, but reality is not that simple. It's always a little dangerous to give a predator like Ailes any measure of humanity,but to get at the problem of harassment,you have to understand how someone like Ailes manipulated these woman. And I must say, I liked putting on the Gretchen dresses. It was like wearing a suit of armor.I'm allowed to like hot pink!
-Robbie(A composite of multiple people) " I did rebel against the Fox dress code. I would not put on nude hose. I said No one my age or younger would wear nude hose. So I said no. Do you think Roger would have fired me?
- Theron" In playing Kelly, I kept thinking,why do we let these very egogentric men run our lives? This film is, hopefully,like taking medicine: It doesn't answer every question, and it isn't a cure,but hopefully does speed the process of change"
