The women of ‘Girls Trip’ cover Essence Magazine
Essence Magazine has debuted five different covers ahead of the release of Girls Trip.
Stars Regina Hall, Tiffany Haddish, Jada Pinkett Smith and Queen Latifah each get their own separate July cover and spoke about the importance of the film to show that it’s alright to let loose a little and have a good time.
“Because of our history in this country and how we’ve been labeled, I think we, as Black women, tend to be a little hard on ourselves,” Pinkett-Smith told Essence. “That feeling of always having to be on point has prevented us from being expansive in how we see ourselves and how we allow ourselves to be entertained, but I think we’re getting to a place where we’re afforded the opportunity to kind of cut loose and see all the wonderful colors of who we are.”
“In this film we are flawed, funny, vulnerable and out of our minds! We go way over the top, just to remind people that it’s comedy,” she added.
