Lupita Nyong'o, Oprah & more featured on the cover of True Hollywood Reporter's Actresses Roundtable!

My girl Lupita is having the BEST year EVER. Like seriously, girlfriend is everywhere and is not missing a beat in the fashion department. She slays every red carpet and photo shoot that she does...the latest series of the pics is no exception. Lupita Nyong'o was photographed on Nov. 9 with with Amy AdamsOprah WinfreyOctavia SpencerEmma Thompson and Julia Roberts at 5th & Sunset Studios in Los Angeles. Peep the pics and highlights:
The Yale grad says "I grew up in Kenya, and a lot of our programming was from all over the world, and we didn't see ourselves onscreen. It was very rare that you'd see people that look like me. And there was Whoopi Goldberg and Oprah and everything. It's so meaningful to be sitting here beside you," 

Winfrey's memorable advice on her first movie, The Color Purple: "So that night, I was in my motel room, crying. [Actor] Adolph Caesar heard me on the other side of the wall. He comes and knocks on the door, and says, 'What is all of this goddamn noise?' He gave me the greatest acting lesson. He said: 'You need to learn to give yourself over to the character. Let the character take control. And if she wants to cry, she'll cry, and if she doesn't, not even Steven Spielberg can make her"

On how her career changed after she had children: "Well, it certainly decreased a great deal, but I had been working for 18 years when I had Hazel andFinn almost nine years ago. So I felt like I earned that time in my house and in my kitchen and in bed all day with these two little people. I felt that was my present to myself. I was fortunate to work a lot, and I worked hard, and I was very devoted to that, and then I earned this jewel box of a life that I felt completely entitled to. It still is really important, but it has made me take more things into consideration."

"I'm a short, cute, chubby woman," says Spencer about her character on NBC's remake of Murder, She Wrote. "There are fewer and fewer roles that I haven't done already, or archetypes that I haven't played, and to break out of that box, the most interesting stuff is television."
