Quantico star Priyanka Chopra is featured in the May 2018 issue of ELLE Canada.
In the issue:
At 35, Priyanka Chopra has racked up more than 50 feature films in her native India’s Bollywood industry and has a growing resumé of projects stateside, like last summer’s Baywatch and this year’s Sundance darling A Kid Like Jake. She also has 21 million Instagram followers, a music career (including singles with Will.I.Am and Pitbull) and a Pantene ambassadorship. That she is this sharp-eyed on-set after a late night of shooting for the third season of her hit TV show, Quantico, and will go on to yet another photo shoot after ours says something about her tireless ambition, which Chopra owns unabashedly.
THAT’S QUITE A ROMANTIC PHILOSOPHY GIVEN HOW DRIVEN YOU ARE. “I’m indecisive until I make a decision. Once I make it, it’s mine—good, bad or ugly. There are times when I’ve made the wrong decision and it has blown up in my face.”
WHAT UPSETS YOU MORE THAN ANYTHING? “I don’t like liars. Honesty is very hot. When you’re scared of the truth, it’s such a turnoff. I also get upset when people try to ‘handle’ you or don’t give you credit for your intelligence and try to manage you for a desired effect. I don’t like games, at work or at play.”
HOW DOES IT FEEL TO BE ON SEASON THREE OF QUANTICO? “I love the validation, of course, and that people watch it and like it and the network has faith in it. I love my character, [federal agent] Alex Parrish. She’s a modern-day hero. She saves the world. She’s badass, flawed and feminine all at the same time. She kicks ass in freaking high heels and perfect hair.”
Quantico airs Thursdays at 10/9c on ABC.

Mom star Anna Faris is featured in the May 2018 issue of Women’s Health.
From the digital issue:
On her childhood: “I had a very healthy upbringing when it came to eating, but it also make me a rebel because there wasn’t any junk food in the house. I’d go to my friends’ to sneak Doritos–chips of any kind were my favourite junk food.”
On her dream podcast guest: “Michelle Obama, of course. Then all of the great comedians I admire, like Kristen Wiig, Cecily Strong, Amy Schumer, Melissa McCarthy.”
On being the magazine’s cover star: “I’m the worst person to be on the cover. Truly. Just look at me! I drink wine; I don’t work out, really; I hoard makeup.”
On life lessons: “I cherish my family, my close friends, my child–that makes the rest of it worth it.”
Mom airs Thursdays at 9/8c on CBS.

The cast of Riverdale is featured in the May/June 2018 issue of Seventeen.
From the digital issue:
Can’t stop obsessing over Riverdale? We get it. Listen up as the super-tight crew from the CW hit chats about confidence, relationships, and their iconic characters.
Cole Sprouse (Jughead): “I’m definitely taking a break from social media. It’s kind of lost its flavor with me. I don’t want things in my life anymore that don’t make me feel better.”
Lili Reinhart (Betty): “Betty has a real kindness and patience with people, whereas I’m not really a people person.”
Camila Mendes (Veronica): “Everyone’s bodies are different, and we all have different shapes, but it has nothing to do with who you are.”
KJ Apa (Archie): “I was for Archie to get a little bit darker, to see a darker side of him. I’m so glad the writers have done that and allowed me to go a little bit deeper.”
Madelaine Petsch (Cheryl): “The biggest piece of advice I’d give myself is to embrace that I’m unique because that’s what is making me successful.”
Casey Cott (Kevin): “People are responding that Kevin is this source of light in a dark town. Kevin makes jokes about all these crazy things that are going on.”
Ashleigh Murray (Josie): “I’d love to be able to give people more of Josie. She’s still in the making. She’s not the iconic leader of the Pussycats yet.”
Riverdale airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on the CW.

American Housewife star Ali Wong is featured in the May 2018 issue of ELLE Magazine.

Being Mary Jane star Gabrielle Union is featured in the April/May 2018 issue of EBONY Magazine.
From the digital issue:
Today Gabrielle Union is an actress who just completed a four-hour photo shoot for EBONY, in the Hollywood Hills. At 45, the actress who looks no older than she did 15 years ago, is an executive producer, author, and designer (of the Gabrielle Union Collection at New York & Company).
Being Mary Jane will conclude its four-year run with a two-hour movie scheduled to air in the Fall. The star wouldn’t reveal any plot twists but confirmed that Morris Chesnut will be in the mix.
“By the end, we had done so many stories and shooting the way we had to shoot, two episodes at a time, seven to ten pages every day,” Union says. “It makes the process not the most enjoyable because you don’t feel like you were able to kill it in the way that other hourlong dramas are able to kill it. It’s a process that became a little too painful.”
Union is in it to win it. She’s not going to stop until she can amass enough power to hire her friends and create content that everyone can enjoy. “It’s not all going to be blockbusters, but I’ll produce things that will, hopefully, resonate with a lot of different people. I’m going to take advantage of this Wakanda moment!”
Being Mary Jane returns this year with a two-hour series finale movie.
