EBONY Magazine: June 2018 – Danai Gurira

The Walking Dead star Danai Gurira is featured in the June 2018 issue of EBONY Magazine.

From the digital issue:

At 40, Danai Gurira best known for her starring roles in Black Panther–the Blockbuster Marvel film and AMC’s The Walking Dead, has embarked on one long and successful journey over the past two years. Gurira’s award-winning plays In Continuum, The Convert, and Eclipsed–have set her apart from her peers. “I think excellence is one of the best forms of building your reputation,” she says.

The Iowa-born, Zimbabew-reared multihyphenate realizes that her relevance will be in the stories she and her sister scribes tell and not the stories that are written about them. We might assume she is strong because she was brave enough to shave her head for the role as Okoye, the Wakandan general in Black Panther As for her strength, Gurira, the youngest of four, is not quite sure where that comes from.

Gurira is most fulfilled, when she can help little girls who look like her. She thinks of the young women back home in Africa who may not realize that they, too, have permission to dream. “I think of those frills when I kind of beat myself up,” she says. “I think of the little girl in Liberia, Rwanda, Zimbabwe, who will never have the opportunity I’m standing in. The least I can do is do my best for her.”

The Walking Dead returns October 2018 on AMC.

W Magazine: Volume 3, 2018 – Tiffany Haddish

The Last O.G. star Tiffany Haddish is featured in W Magazine‘s Volume 3, 2018 issue.

In the issue:

Tiffany Haddish, who is 38 and has been working steadily for years, is having a moment. Which, as often happens in Hollywood, led to other moments: a solo stand-up special on Showtime called Tiffany ­Haddish: She Ready! From the Hood to Hollywood! and, most important, her memoir, The Last Black ­Unicorn, which was published in December 2017. She had been working on her story for years, but when Girls Trip grossed $100 million, the book was rushed into print and quickly became a best-seller.

Haddish is best known for a white gown—specifically, a slinky Alexander McQueen halter with a jeweled neckline that she wore to the premiere of Girls Trip. And, again, to host Saturday Night Live. And then, yet again, as a presenter at the Academy Awards. “And I might wear it again,” Haddish told me. “Here’s the story of that dress: I hired a stylist for Girls Trip, and she said, ‘Girl, if you’re trying to make it to the next level in your career, you’re going to have to spend a little money.’ I said, ‘I’m down to look my best. Whatever it takes.’ ” The stylist brought several options, and the only one that fit her body was the McQueen. It was perfect. “I should’ve known—wasn’t no price tag on that dress. So I wear it for Girls Trip, and then they give me the receipt. When I saw the receipt, I cried. The dress was $4,122! So I’m wearing it multiple f**king times. I don’t care what nobody say—that’s a down payment on a car, that’s a medical bill. So, even though everyone says I shouldn’t wear the dress in public again, I’m wearing it.”

The Last O.G. is just one of Haddish’s projects. In addition to her ongoing stand-up performances, in ­September she will costar with Kevin Hart in Night School. Hart, who helped find Haddish an apartment when she was homeless, could be an electric match for her. After Girls Trip made $30 million on its opening weekend, Haddish received around 1,500 invitations, pitches, and job offers. “I waited,” she told me. “It felt fantastic! But I am hoping for someone to figure out how to do Girls Trip II. So far, that hasn’t happened. Me and the girls know how to do a sequel. We’ve mapped it out. We may have to write it ourselves.”

Season one of The Last O.G. recently wrapped on TBS. Her next gig is hosting the MTV Movie & TV Awards, June 18th on MTV.
