2013 was a great year for black films: Fruitvale Station, Lee Daniels’ The Butler, 42, The Best Man Holiday, Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom and 12 Years a Slave.
And some of the films’ actors are featured on Hollywood’s hottest ensemble cover.
Featured on the Hollywood issue’s cover is Idris Elba (Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom), Academy-Award nominee Lupita Nyong’o (12 Years a Slave), Michael B. Jordan (Fruitvale Station), Naomie Harris (Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom), Chadwick Boseman (42) and Academy-Award nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave).
Academy-Award nominees Julia Roberts (August: Osage County) and Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club) are also featured — as well as George Clooney (Gravity), Brie Larson (Short Term 12), Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street), and Léa Seydoux (Blue Is the Warmest Color).
