Laverne Cox

Laverne Cox is featured inside the October issue of Cosmopolitan (on newsstands now). Just before she gets her diva on as the lead of the revamped Rocky Horror Picture Show (tune in October 20 on Fox), Orange Is The New Black star and trans-rights activist Laverne Cox pays tribute to her personal superheroines. Watch, learn, love.

Laverne Cox Quotes

On Beyoncé, contemporary R&B queen: “Beyoncé represents excellence. Her work ethic is like nobody else I’ve ever seen. There were so many moments when I was shooting Rocky Horror and I’d be exhausted. My body would be hurting and I’d be like, ‘Beyoncé. Beyoncé does this.’ You have to just put in the work.”

On Tina Turner, rock & roll legend: “The pain, pleasure, and agony of all she’s been through is in her voice. Her story is the story of so many black women who’ve endured abuse and come out the other side in such a brilliant, beautiful way. ”

On Tracey Africa, trailblazing model: “She was a black trans woman who modeled in the ’70s and had cosmetics deals and a hair con­tract with Clairol—it was a big deal. People think, ‘Oh, this trans revolution is just start­ing,’ but we’ve been around for a very long time. It’s important to know that there’s been a path blazed for me.”

Misty Copeland

American Ballet Theatre principal dancer Misty Copeland is featured in Cosmopolitan’s August issue (on newsstands now). The now-33-year-old landed among the prestigious ABT ranks at 17 and was promoted to principal dancer last summer. She’s the first black woman to hold the title in ABT’s 76-year history. And she was Prince’s muse and friend until his death last April. Soaring through the air in gala-worthy gowns or dressed down in denim that stretches to her every move, pioneering ballerina and boss businesswoman Misty Copeland is all the #Goals in this month’s Cosmopolitan.

Misty Copeland Quotes

On when Prince cast her in a 2009 music video: "I began to understand my full potential… Having someone say ‘I trust you and your talent’ was all it took to start feeling like I could be in control of my career and make things happen on my own.”

On having to prove herself at ABT: "I had times when, as an African-American woman, I felt that I didn’t belong in the ballet world."

On determination: “Even when you think you’ve arrived, you have to keep working. Not everyone is going to like you or think you’re the right fit. But hearing no makes you stronger.”

On support: "There’s no wrong way to create your own path, but you have to find support. On those days when you want to give up, you have to have people in your life who are going to keep you striving.”

Jessica Alba

Jessica Alba covers the March issue of Cosmopolitan (on newsstands February 9). Alba has become one of America’s richest self-made women, worth more, as of last year, than Beyoncé and Jennifer Lawrence, per Forbes estimations. Here, the actor-turned-tycoon outlines the honest truth behind her success.

Jessica Alba Quotes

On her first career: "I always wanted to be a big action star, to be as relevant as men. I was very aggressive with the vision and manifesting it.”

On owning your femininity: “Most of my life, I identified more with my masculine side. I was kind of aggressive and super masculine in my early 20s—even into my mid- 20s. I got boobs when I was young… and I was like, What do I do?… I was never the girl who they marketed. I was always feeling angry, like an imposter. I learned how to be cool with the feminine later in life."

On never doubting your own expertise: “I’m in a man’s world in business. But I know what women want— [men] don’t… Whenever [male colleagues] question me in meetings, I’m like, ‘Go home and ask your wife. This is a pointless conversation. Go home and talk to her.’ When we were talking about package designs, I was like, ‘Are you really giving me notes on packaging for feminine care? I literally can’t with you.’”

On equal pay: "There are not as many women in government titles, business titles. It’s just not equal. And until there is equality, you’re going to feel that no matter what industry you’re in. But from day one, I was like, girls should have an equal seat at the table. Take Jennifer Lawrence. I mean, she’s opening movies—she’s the box office draw as much as any guy in the movie, if not more. She should be compensated for that."

Nicki Minaj In Cosmo

Nicki Minaj covers the July issue of Cosmopolitan, on stands June 9. The world’s highest paid female rapper, currently on tour for her most recent album The Pinkprint, opens up to the magazine about money, breakups, and demanding an orgasm every time.

On being open about discussing money:

“Women are uncomfortable talking about money. I know it’s taboo to discuss it at work. Technically, you shouldn’t, but you need to know what people around you are making. Otherwise, you’re not going to know what you’re worth. You have to ask questions. ‘What is this person getting?’ Do your research. I’ve always been pretty competitive in terms of my pay.”

On recording The Pinkprint after a tough breakup with Safaree Samuels:

“I didn’t [set out] to write a personal album, but The Pinkprint came at a very crucial time in my life. I realized that people can up and take off at any given moment. As women, we are vulnerable and emotional, and that’s okay. I had to learn quickly that if you don’t have a sense of self, you can be destroyed by a man. You can be destroyed by a relationship. I had to ask myself, ‘Who am I? Is this good enough?’ I had to approve of myself and my skills."

On being high-maintenance in bed:

“I demand that I climax. I think women should demand that. I have a friend who’s never had an orgasm in her life. In her life! That hurts my heart. It’s cuckoo to me. We always have orgasm interventions where we, like, show her how to do stuff. We’ll straddle each other, saying, ‘You gotta get on him like that and do it like this.’ She says she’s a pleaser. I’m a pleaser, but it’s 50/50."

On where she sees herself in ten years:

“Ten years from now, I will have two children, unless my husband wants three. I will be into my fitness a lot more, I will stop yo-yo dieting, and I’ll be a housewife with careers that I can run from home. I want to be able to cook for my children, bake cookies for them, and watch them grow up. I just want to be Mommy. Take them to school, go to the parent-teacher conference, help them with their homework, and put their work on the refrigerator.”

Zooey Deschanel

Zooey Deschanel covers the June issue of Cosmopolitan, on stands May 12. The New Girl star, currently pregnant with her first child with fiancée Jacob Pechenik, spoke to the magazine about why she won’t be posing in a “body after baby” photo shoot, what she thinks of the #AskHerMore Twitter campaign, and why now is a great time for women in television.

For more of Zooey Deschanel's exclusive interview and photo shoot with Cosmopolitan, pick up the issue on newsstands May 12th.

On achieving success:

“I’m very focused. I work all the time, but I do what I love and I don’t care what people think of it. You don’t become successful by trying to be ‘a success.’ You become successful by doing things that give you pleasure. That’s a hallmark of mine.”

On not posing for a “body after baby” tabloid photo shoot:

“Haven’t we all seen those pictures of a sexy new mom in a bikini after one month? I will not be that person. I’ve always gone my own course and never been someone who had the need to be super skinny. I like a healthy look. I don’t buy into that skinny-is-better mentality. I just eat healthy and work out and don’t worry about my weight too much. Actresses aren’t models, and most of them never wanted to be.”

On women in television:

“It’s a good time for women on TV. We can be funny in our own way…and funny doesn’t mean just one thing. Funny isn’t just one-liners. It’s big personalities and individualism.”

Bella Thorne In Cosmo

In the February issue of Cosmopolitan, on stands January 13, Bella Thorne poses in a new fashion shoot in an ode to early spring filled with florals, stripes, and butterflies. The actress, starring as a queen bee in The DUFF, in theaters February 20, opens up to the magazine about the pressure to look and act perfect 24/7, her haters on social media, and her boyfriend Tristan Klier.

Do you feel pressure to look and act perfect 24/7?

“I think a lot of girls do, and it’s unfair because guys don’t. Guys can have acne scars and be overweight or rude. If a girl is the least bit sarcastic or she speaks out about something, she’s a bitch. It’s completely messed up.”

How do you deal with haters on social media?

“If a girl wears a bathing suit, she is a ho and is body-shamed. If you don’t show your body, you’re a prude. You take pictures with a guy and you’re a ho; you take pictures with a girlfriend and you’re a lesbian. I don’t understand how girls can sit there and pick one another apart. My friends and I don’t do that. Even if I’m not having a good day, my friends are always like, ‘But babe, your style is impeccable. I love your shoes.’ No matter what, we always pick out the good things.”

You and boyfriend Tristan Klier have been on and off for three years. What have you learned along the way?

“Do not stalk who [guys are] following on Instagram, thinking, ‘She has this. Maybe he likes that?’ That’ll just kill you. Take it from a girl who never had boobs. Every woman in my family has huge boobs. And the girls in Tristan’s school—I don’t know what’s in their food, but all their boobs are legit huge. I was always flat-chested, and that really gave me a complex growing up. Once I stopped stressing about them, they grew.”

Cameron Diaz In Cosmo

Cameron Diaz covers the January 2015 issue of Cosmopolitan, on newsstands nationwide December 9. The star opens up to the magazine about what makes for a successful relationship, what she’s learned from past loves, and even how she felt being asked to sing while playing the role of Miss Hannigan in Annie, in theaters later this month.

Diaz neither confirms nor denies recent reports of an upcoming wedding to Benji Madden, but shares thoughts on what makes for a good relationship:

“You have to find someone in the same place as you are. Timing is everything. If you get into a relationship where you want something the guy doesn’t want, it’s never gonna work. You’re never going to get him to be in that place. No matter how old you are, finding the guy who’s in the same place as you are and wants to show up is the only way a relationship works, period.”

On learning from past relationships:

“Here’s the thing. You make the same mistake over and over again until you learn your lesson. We girls sometimes do the thing where we pick the same person over and over again – they look and seem different, but deep down, they’re the same. And that’s on us."

On having to sing in her role as Miss Hannigan in Annie, which hits theaters December 19:

“It was the most terrifying thing I’ve ever done in a movie. I cried a lot. [Miss Hannigan is] bitter because her chance at fame was stolen, and all she can taste is that taste, which is very much in line with this day and age. People determine your value by how many friends you have on Facebook or if you’re Instagram famous.”

Rita Ora In Cosmo

British pop princess Rita Ora covers the December issue of Cosmopolitan, available on newsstands nationwide November 4th. The singer opens up to the magazine about her music, sex and dating, and loving her body.

On Ora’s recent breakup with DJ/producer Calvin Harris:

“It was the right guy at the wrong time. I was about to start a tour, and he was also all over the place. There’s only so much you can do when you don’t see each other. I really admire people who have long-distance relationships. It’s an incredible achievement. I couldn’t do it.”

On Iggy Azalea’s feminist anthem “Black Widow,” in which Ora is featured:

“As soon as I heard it, I was like, ‘This is the fucking song.’ Katy Perry cowrote it – it felt nice to have all women involved.”

On her sexuality:

“I’m very proud to say that I think about sex. It’s what everybody thinks about, whether they say it or not. For me, sex is a form of getting to know a person – feeling someone’s skin.”

On loving her body:

“You have to come to terms with loving your body. Stand naked in front of the mirror and say, ‘I’m fucking sexy.’ That’s where it starts.”

Emily Ratajkowski

"Blurred Lines" and Gone Girl star Emily Ratajkowski is Cosmopolitan’s November cover girl and she’s got a few things she needs to get off her chest – ahem, yes they’re real! Since her "Blurred Lines" debut with Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams, the bombshell has booked two major film roles: Gone Girl with Ben Affleck, and the upcoming We Are Your Friends with Zac Efron. In her interview with the magazine, Emily dishes on why she initially turned down the "Blurred Lines" video and why she feels “lucky to wear what I want, sleep with who I want, and dance how I want,” while still being a feminist. Oh, and how does she sum up Cosmo readers? Two words: “badass women."

Lucy Hale

Lucy Hale rocks a little black dress on the cover of the September issue of Cosmopolitan, on newsstands August 12th. The Pretty Little Liars star opens up to the magazine about her latest country music album, being a role model for young women, and even auditioning to play the part of Anastasia Steele in the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie.

On Lucy’s latest project, making a country music album:

“So many people didn’t want to touch the project with a 10-foot pole. Literally, I had people laughing and saying, ‘You’re making an album? Good luck.’ … But if you sit down and talk music with me for 10 minutes, you know that’s my passion.”

On the superficial image Hollywood sells to young women:

“[Pretty Little Liars] is about how we look too. That’s terrifying sometimes because you’re breaking out or you feel gross and you still have to be in front of the camera. We’ll post pictures on Instagram and people will be like, ‘Y’all are so flawless.’ Little do they know it’s fake hair, fake eyelashes, and a good filter. Little girls see that and think they have to be like that.”

Megan Fox

Superstar Megan Fox is Cosmo’s August cover girl, on newsstands July 8th. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles star opens up to the magazine about women in Hollywood, her sexuality, and life with her husband Brian Austin Green.

On someone she finds sexy:

"I think Ellen [DeGeneres] is sexy. Maybe it’s the way she gives off the impression that she’s anti-'the business' even though she’s engaging in it. And humor is always sexy."

Chrissy Teigen

Model Chrissy Teigen looks fun and fearless on the cover of June Cosmopolitan, on newsstands nationwide May 6th. She wows on not one but three covers this month, and takes it all off in her spread, dipping her famous curves in a soapy bathtub as she comes clean about her romance with hubby John Legend. In her interview, she opens up about their first night together, the craziest place they’ve ever had sex, and taking her career to the next level.

On hooking up with John Legend on the set of his hit 2009 single “Stereo,” and building their relationship:

“I’m not going to lie. We hooked up. [When he went on tour] I left him be himself for a while. The worst thing you can do is try to lock someone like that down early on, then have them think, There’s so much more out there. I played it cool for a long time. Never once did I ask, ‘What are we?’ Marriage was never my goal, because I’ve never been very traditional. I was just happy to be with him.”

On PDA with her husband:

“We’re by no means freaky-deaky, but let’s just say, we’re open to things. We’re very okay with PDA. When we go to a restaurant, he loves when I wear a dress, so he can do some upper-thigh rubbing.”

On the craziest place she and her husband have had sex:

“We were on our way to Thailand to see my parents, flying commercial first-class. We were under a blanket. We weren’t even in one of those pod things. I feel like we should get a trophy for that.”

On making a name for herself:

“I got so lucky that I met Brooklyn Decker and she [hooked me up with] Sports Illustrated. I got so lucky that I met John, who propelled my career. I’m not delusional: that definitely helped.”
