Wow, Naomie Harris.
The British stunner is the latest cover star of Net-a-Porter's The Edit, and pretty much crushes the editorial in a series of printed and textured separates. Harris, who is set to star as social worker Angela Rivera in the upcoming boxing film Southpaw, opened about her initial hesitancy to take on the challenging role.
"[The film's director] Antoine [Fuqua] called me. He was so passionate, so persuasive, that by the end of the call, I was like, "I'm getting on the plane to Pittsburgh and working with this man.' I'm so glad I did," she said. "He pushes you really hard, but he shows he has faith that you can do it. He makes actors feel valued and important, and creates an environment that is totally safe. All those things mean you can and want to take risks. I had the best time." (All's well...!)
