Chocolate-Covered HARLEM, NY native 92-year-old ageless EMMY AWARD Winner CICELY TYSON and 34-year-old LOS ANGELES native TESSA THOMPSON are two of the cover stories for the November 2017 WOMEN IN HOLLYWOOD ISSUE of ELLE Magazine!!!

Ms. TYSON and Ms. THOMPSON are joined by their colleagues JESSICA CHASTAIN, JENNIFER LAWRENCE, KATHLEEN KENNEDY, LAURA DERN MAGOT ROBBIE, and RILEY KEOUGH as the other covers.

Here are some interview interludes:

CICELY TYSON;

On women who have influenced her career:
“At the very beginning of my career, I had a teacher whose name was Vinnette Carroll; she directed a number of Broadway shows. She kept saying to me, “You know the problem with beautiful women? They tend to rely on their beauty.” And I said, How wrong she is! I never think of myself as being beautiful. I thought, What are you talking about? I work so hard. And I did. But I learned from her how important it is to learn your craft. When all else fails, you will land on that, and that alone.”

TESSA THOMPSON;

On how traditional roles never worked for her:
“I think our ideas about what a young black person or a young Mexican person or a young white person should be like weren’t as expansive then as they are now. It made me think I had to fit into a box. The one-dimensional girlfriend or the sassy black friend—those weren’t going to work for me.”
