English actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw covers Elle’s Women In Hollywood Issue November 2014. In the Paola Kudacki lensed photoshoot, the 30-year-old England native wears a Calvin Klein Collection jacket accesorized with earrings by Harry Winston and Chopard and a David Yurman ring. Inside, she wears a tee-shirt and boxers by Calvin Klein and a Chopard necklace.
Guga talks about her role in Beyond the Lights and reflects on pursuing her dreams as an actress in the cover story. Below are some excerpts:
On her role in Beyond the Lights: “One of the things that drew me to the project was the relationship between mother and daughter— that ‘mom-ager’ dynamic—because I grew up with a single mom, though my dad has definitely been in my life a lot. But my mom couldn’t be more different from Minnie Driver’s character. I was the pushy child, the one who wanted to be doing ballet and jazz and tap and everything.”
On if she’s had a moment where she thought to herself, Wow, I’m going to make it: “It’s funny—I never feel like, ‘Oh, wow, I’ve made it.’ I’m interested in the journey. I’m interested in the adventure of working with different people, and I guess as soon as you sit on your laurels and can go, ‘Well, aren’t I great?’—that’s just the beginning of the end.”
