Move over Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Aniston, and Jennifer Lopez — Elle is putting a different group of actresses in the spotlight. For the magazine's November issue (which hits newsstands on October 16), Elle honors nine actresses varying in age and with differing career paths, including: "Sex and the City's" Sarah Jessica Parker, Oscar winner Octavia Spencer, "Harry Potter's" Emma Watson, and Dakota Fanning's younger sister, Elle Fanning. Which is your fave?
Sarah Jessica Parker on Carrie Bradshaw and future roles:
"I don't love the idea of playing another woman who loves fashion and is slightly flawed in New York City. I loved Carrie, and I don't want to do the poor man's version of her. And while those are often the lucrative things to do, it's more reason to look in the other direction."
Octavia Spencer on standing up for herself:
"Early on I had to stand up to a producer — I won't say who, but he is famous, famous. He dressed me down in a crowded office. I told him right there in front of a hundred people, 'You don't know me well enough to use that tone'…And then I ran to the bathroom and cried like a baby. But he never addressed me that way again. And he is known as a yeller."
Emma Watson on her 'Harry Potter' fame:
"I just knew, from the moment I read "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" that I was meant to play that role…I put one of the Potter films on the other night. And it was amazing to me that I had done all of that. I have to remind myself every now and then."
