Amy covers the new Hollywood Reporter

Magazine launches; cover features six leading awards season actresses for roundtable discussion.

In an awards season where actresses have created unusually memorable performances, The Hollywood Reporter is focusing on six of the most buzz-worthy in its first relaunched issue available Wednesday.

Amy Adams (The Fighter), Annette Bening (The Kids Are All Right), Helena Bonham Carter (Alice in Wonderland, The King’s Speech), Nicole Kidman (Rabbit Hole), Natalie Portman (Black Swan) and Hilary Swank (Conviction) sat down with THR for an hourlong freewheeling and often fun discussion to kick off the annual Awards Season Roundtable Series.

The actresses discussed everything from dealing with director conflict on the set, the emotional impact of certain roles, to how they balance motherhood and work. The interviews were conducted on Oct. 25 at the Siren Studios in Los Angeles. The group was photographed by photographer Lorenzo Agius.

Extensive video portions of the interview will be available on THR online on Nov. 3.
