“Bombshell” stars Nicole Kidman, Margot Robbie and Charlize Theron cover the latest issue of W Magazine photographed by Colin Dodgson and styled by Sara Moonves.
Nicole Kidman: “We want to tell complicated stories about women, and that’s very difficult. The world likes clear-cut winners and losers, abusers and victims, but reality is not that simple. It’s always a little dangerous to give a predator like Ailes any measure of humanity, but to get at the problem of harassment, you have to understand how someone like Ailes manipulated these women.”
Margot Robbie: “I did rebel against the Fox dress code,” she says. “I would not put on nude hose. I said, ‘No one my age or younger would wear nude hose,’ so I said no. Do you think Roger would have fired me?”
Charlize Theron: “For women to be betrayed in their workplace by a mentor who is going to make your career possible is very confusing. The water is murky. I love the nuance of that in our film: We don’t tell the story of the perfect victims of Fox. We try to tell the story of the messy, emotional dynamics between boss and employee. In Bombshell, our monsters don’t always look like monsters, which is how it is in real life.”
