“Pieces of a Woman” star Vanessa Kirby covers the December/January Issue of Harper’s Bazaar Magazine photographed by Scott Trindle and styled by Charlotte Roberts.
On preparing for the opening of Pieces of a Woman (a 30-minute labor scene): “I started watching everything I could find. Endless documentaries, home birth videos, but everything was so sanitized; everything was so edited.”
On shadowing an obstetrician and witnessing a live birth: “I watched her for six hours go through a really difficult labor, no painkillers, forceps. It got really, really difficult…I watched her go on a completely lone journey, like an odyssey, through the most primal, almost divine…And I saw the power and the fear in all of it. I came away far more of a woman in appreciating the sacredness of the feminine in a way that I don’t think I had fully realized. I feel like I had lived something in human experience I hadn’t lived before.”
“It brought everything that I sort of had known intellectually into being, which is, this is like the magnificence of being a woman, and its creation essentially…It almost gave birth to the film inside my heart.”
