The #AskHerMore campaign gained momentum leading up to the Academy Awards
and ET talked to stars including Julianne Moore, Kerry Washington, Lupita Nyong'o and Nicole Kidman about the importance of the message.
The campaign, launched by The Representation Project
in February 2014, draws attention to how top stars are often asked more questions about fashion than acting, especially compared to male celebrities.
The stars gave us five great reasons why #AskHerMore should be more the norm.
1. What an actress wears is only a fraction of who she is. "I think it's important to ask everybody more than what they're wearing. Ask them what they're thinking. What their work is about," Oscar winner Julianne Moore said.
2. Many actresses have seen the world and have unique views on it. "I think it's great to kind of highlight the fact that women are multifaceted -- that we can talk about the world as much as we can talk about our gowns," Kerry Washington said.
3. Actresses can share advice to aspiring starlets. "I enjoy being asked about my craft -- my profession. Fashion is something that I think of as an extracurricular interest," last year's Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o told ET.
4. Actresses aren't mannequins. "It's wonderful to celebrate fashion, but at the same time, it's wonderful to celebrate the work. It's not all just about the dress, right?" 2003 Oscar winner Nicole Kidman said.
5. #AskHerMore makes Andy Samberg twirl.
We turned the tables on Andy by asking him about his fashion. The Saturday Night Live
alum did a fashion twirl on ET's red carpet platform.
