The New York Times Magazine will debut its annual “Hollywood Issue” in tomorrow’s paper, and this year’s theme is Heroines. Included in the issue are Emmanuelle Riva, Naomi Watts, Quvenzhane Wallis, Rebel Wilson, Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Lawrence, Elle Fanning, Kerry Washington, Marion Cootillard, Helen Hunt, Amy Adams, Shirley MacLaine and Keira Knightley.
Over on the Magazine website, each of these talented actors, most of whom are looking at Oscar noms next year, get to show their acting chops once again in a short film. An odd and confusing and beautiful short film.
Above is Wilson play a dreamlike, or drug-addled, mermaid, and other videos featuring Hathaway as a daydreaming maid, Wallis as a child warrior and Lawrence having fun with snakes can be seen here.
Our favorite however is still Wilson’s, not that we can figure out what the hell it means.
