Vanity Fair's 2018 Hollywood Issue cover has been revealed.

Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Tom Hanks, Zendaya, Michael B. Jordan, Jessica Chastain, Claire Foy, Michael Shannon, Harrison Ford, Gal Gadot and Robert De Niro all appear on the 24th annual edition's cover, along with the magazine's former editor Graydon Carter.

The cover, shot by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz, brings together A-list stars from both film and TV. Winfrey and Witherspoon, who star in the upcoming A Wrinkle in Time movie, sit together in the photograph while Witherspoon's Big Little Lies co-star Kidman sits in front of the duo on the cover.

The Post's Hanks stands beside Jordan on the cover, who stars in February's Black Panther movie. In front of Hanks and Jordan sits Zendaya, who stars in The Greatest Showman, Molly's Game star Chastain and The Crown's Foy.

In an accompanying video, several of the cover stars—including Gadot, Hanks and Jordan—were asked how they found their authentic selves. "Laughing at myself on TV as a young anchorwoman, I had this moment where realized, 'I can be a better me than I can be a pretend Barbara Walters.' And that's what changed my life!" Winfrey said. "From that moment forward, I felt more like talking like myself and being like myself. Your ability to show the truth of you is also somebody's else's truth, and when people can see that, that is what they're relating to."

Zendaya added, "Finding out who you are is a difficult process and I think that everybody is going through it for their entire life. For me, I think it's A, accepting that we are constantly growing and changing, and the person I was a year ago is not who I'm going to be in a year."

Meanwhile, Kidman—who won an Emmy, Golden Globe and SAG Award for her role as Celeste in HBO's Big Little Lies—said, "I have so much emotion, so to then have an outlet or a place where I can go and use those feelings, that's what pulls me though. That's my authentic self."
