Vanity Fair recently debuted its "New Hollywood" issue featuring (from left to right) Abbie Cornish, Kristen Stewart, Carey Mulligan, Amanda Seyfried, Rebecca Hall, Mia Wasikowska, Emma Stone, Evan Rachel Wood and Anna Kendrick.
Sure, these babes are über-talented and ones to watch.
Uh, only problem being most of these gals are not "new" to Hollywood, and V.F. totally neglects to incorporate any diversity into this issue whatsoever.
...stars like Gabby Sidibe or Zoe Saldana?
Gabby is nominated for a Best Actress Oscar, while Zoe stared in Avatar, now the No. 1 film of all time.
We're sure Vanity's response is that they chose the current cover actresses ahead of time, but Zoe also starred in megahit Star Trek last May. Oh, and Gabby's been getting buzz for Precious since Sundance of '09.
Also! Kristen and Amanda (heart them both) made the cover of Vanity Fair's New Hollywood issue last year. Abbie has been around since the Ryan Phillippe drama days, and ERW has been on Hollywood's radar since Thirteen.
So what's the deal?
Yeah, we know we here at the Awful Truth talk about the same petite white people featured on this cover, but we're a gossip column. We follow the drama! Sorry if babes like Gabby and Zoe are too normal.
Still, for a feature magazine about new t-a-l-e-n-t, can't we shake it up? Let's not pick and choose the same pixie-perfect girls over and over again. Time to shake it up, Hollywood.
