Salma Hayek, Amy Schumer and Dakota Johnson Flash Cleavage for 'Elle' Covers
By Jackie Willis
The curves are out and up close for Elle's "Women In Hollywood" covers.
While Ava DuVernay, Carey Mulligan, Gena Rowlands, Alicia Vikander and Kate Winslet covered up for their photo shoots with the fashion magazine, Amy Schumer, Dakota Johnson and Salma Hayek showed a bit more cleavage.
Aside from the stunning photos, a few great quotes also came out of the magazine's time with these powerful women in entertainment.
When Johnson spoke with the publication, she admitted that when she took on the role of Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades of Grey, she wanted her character to be funny. "If you can't laugh during a movie like that, you're f**ked," she said of the erotic flick. "Literally. You need to have something that everyone can relate to."
As for Schumer, her Trainwreck co-star Brie Larson revealed that the comedian can be just as crass off camera as she is on her Emmy-winning show and blockbuster movie. "We were shooting the baby shower scene, and after Amy introduced everyone, she said, 'OK, let's go around the room and tell each other when we first got HPV,'" Larson recalled. "She brings to light the parts of our lives that we usually conceal. She's using comedy to break down boundaries."
While Schumer and Johnson are both single ladies, Hayek brought another point of view to the ELLE issue: her role as a mother to her 8-year-old daughter, Valentina Pinault. "[Director] Oliver Stone said, 'I know you're tough, but now you're a mother. Do you think you can be that tough?' I said, 'Oh my God -- motherhood just makes you tougher,'" the 49-year-old actress declared.
Before she was a major movie star herself, Johnson was tagging along with her famous mother, actress Melanie Griffith, at the 2000 Academy Awards. See what the Fifty Shades leading lady told ET when she was just 10 years old:
