Winfrey, Whitaker, Jordan, and Ejiofor appear on the cover of Essence magazine to discuss their upcoming movies, The Help and 12 Years A Slave. Winfrey on being sexy:
I don’t think of myself as being sexy and I’m not even sure how one is sexy.
Ejiofor on his role:
Even though there were emotional moments to shoot, overall I think every member of the cast and crew was there for one reason: They felt it was a tale that deserved to be told.
