Laverne Cox is the Queen of Liberty on the Cover of Entertainment Weekly



0-Laverne-Cox-for-Entertainment-WeeklyOrange is the New Black actress Laverne Cox covers Entertainment Weekly dressed as the Statue of Liberty, a monument which symbolizes hope and freedom for many.

Laverne Cox was photographed by Alexei Hay looking good in a green gown with a deep plunge.

In the magazine she talks about finally getting acceptance in Hollywood, the Caitlyn Jenner phenomenon and more.

Read excerpts from her interview below.

On being a transgender: “I just wonder, am I allowed to be a human being?”

On Caitlyn Jenner’s transition in the media:  “This is why I’m so grateful that I had the luxury of transitioning in private. Because when you transition in the public eye, the transition becomes the story. I’m always disturbed when I see conversations about trans people that focus on surgery. But I believe Caitlyn will transcend this moment.”

    excessive dangerous expensive surgeries+hormones+hair extensions+heavy makeup+pretty dress+high heels= WOMAN

    “she” is the weakest “actress” on orange is the new black. compair “her” to other actresses on the show.

    the only roles u can play will be transgender roles. u can never play the girlfriend in a romantic comedy starring bradley cooper. never gon happen.

    But this transgenders really look feminine ooo, more feminine than people actually born female. Due to the Caitlyn Jenner saga I was curious and started googling. I even went to the extent of asking my kids (2 boys 1 girl) if they feel different. I asked the boys if they wished they looked like their sister, Although my boys are quite macho and do all the guy stuff but so was Bruce. I didn’t bother asking my daughter because she was born female and so shall she remain, lol. I even see the way she behaves(she too like shakara and always pretending to be one female star or the other). Anyways I came across one other transgender, Janet Mock. I was shocked to say the least. To say she’s beautiful would be a gross understatement. I asked my husband if he could believe this was boy before, he said “hmmmmm! Thank God I’m married, I would have fallen prey, easily too.” My own is that they should easy sha at least they shouldn’t take all the shine from the ones actually born female, lol.
