Viola Davis

The How to Get Away With Murder celebrity said regarding sexism that ‘We’ve been fed a whole slew of lies about women.” By TV standards, “if you are anywhere above a size 2 and if you’re of a certain age, you’re off the table.”

Taraji P Henson

The star from Cookie on Fox series Empire stated as ‘It was very important to me that [Cookie Lyon] not be sassy and neck-rollin’ and eye-bulgin’ and attitude all the time. Everything she does is coming from a place of fighting for her family. That’s why she’s not a caricature.”

Olivia Wilde

The star from imminent HBO series Vinyl stated that “One day all these people were bowing down to me and throwing free clothes at me and telling me I was the best thing since sliced bread, and the next day…all of that disappeared. That was great for an 18-year-old to learn, and I will never again take the BS seriously,”

Julia Louis-Dreyfus

She was excited by performing a central character in the HBO seriesVeep. “Go to the movies—how many good scripts are you really seeing out there? How many good, meaty roles are there for women within those scripts? Not tons of them. Right now there are so many [TV] shows on with strong, complicated, powerful, not-so-powerful, interesting human beings who are women. And I am thrilled to be playing one of them.”
