Oprah Winfrey, Amy Adams, Emma Thompson, Julia Roberts, Octavia Spencer and “12 Years a Slave’s” Lupita Nyong’o At The Actresses Roundtable


Amy Adams, Emma Thompson, Julia Roberts, Octavia Spencer and “12 Years a Slave’s” Lupita Nyong’o on their scariest on-set moments, dumb audition moments and kissing Meryl Streep. This story first appeared in the Dec 6. issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. See more after the jump…

Putting together THR’s roundtables always is a complicated affair, but perhaps none this year was quite as tricky as the Actress Roundtable. First came the matter of coordinating six busy performers’ schedules — a project that began way back in the summer and especially was complex given that 12 Years a Slave’s Lupita Nyong’o, 30, lives in Brooklyn, Emma Thompson (Saving Mr. Banks), 54, in London, and Amy Adams (American Hustle, Her), 39, has been juggling back-to-back movies. Next came the challenge of getting enough time with the actresses to include an hourlong conversation, the requisite grooming, behind-the-scenes video and an elaborate photo shoot. Finally came the complication of having each participant’s lawyer vet television releases so that this roundtable can be broadcast in December on PBS. With all this, it’s no surprise that the final t’s were crossed mere hours before the roundtable got underway Nov. 9 in Los Angeles, when an amazingly candid conversation took place among Nyong’o, Thompson, Adams, Oprah Winfrey (Lee Daniels’ The Butler), 59, Julia Roberts (August: Osage County), 46, and Octavia Spencer (Fruitvale Station), 43. A few tears were shed.
