In the new issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine, Charlize Theron, Michelle Williams, Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, Glenn Close and Carey Mulligan kick off THR’s annual awards season series with an exclusive discussion on their regrets, the mean things people say to them and why Davis hates it when a black actress’ performance is called “dignified.”
The Hollywood Reporter kicks off its annual Oscar roundtable series with a first: Two actresses from the same film — The Help’s Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer — were among the six A-listers who sat down for a wide-ranging discussion that touched on topics ranging from bad reviews to nudity.
Joining the duo — who play maids who participate in a tell-all book that shakes up life in 1960s Jackson, Miss. — were four other awards contenders: Glenn Close, who’s turning heads for her gender-bending title role in Albert Nobbs; Michelle Williams, who gave her spin on a screen legend in My Week With Marilyn; Carey Mulligan, who brought to life a lounge singer with suicidal tendencies in Shame; and Charlize Theron, who conquers an evil character again in Young Adult.
