Alison Brie on the August 2018 Cover of Fashion Magazine

For their August 2018 cover, Fashion magazine tapped Alison Brie. On the cover which was shot by Max Abadian, Alison is wearing a MARY KATRANTZOU FALL 2018 beaded sweater. In the issue, she talks not wanting to be called a comedic actress, for the role in GLOW and more. Continue below to read excepts from her issue. For more details on Alison's feature, visit and pick up a copy on newsstand. 

On the biggest misconception about her:
The biggest misconception across the board is that I’m a comedy actress, and it drives me crazy,. Which is weird because I don’t want to begrudge that title in a way that implies I hate the genre. I don’t. I love it! But, to me, there’s more to me. There’s untapped resources you guys don’t even know about. 

On fighting for her role on GLOW:
I almost can’t even define why, but certain things you just read and you’re like, this is my role. Maybe it came from having felt slightly misunderstood in my career—although I still sort of feel that way everywhere outside of GLOW—but I just had this drive to fight for this character, and I knew exactly what I wanted to do with her. I would go into every audition superconfident with all these amazing decisions and then leave the auditions and go cry in my car because our producers, as much as I love them now, were very cold and awkward in the room while I was auditioning. 

On people telling her what to do:
You get out of college and everyone tells you to define yourself now: ‘Put yourself in a box before other people do and then you’ll work more.’ I was learning good tools that I would continue to use, but my individuality was at stake because a lot of work in this industry is people saying ‘Don’t trust what you think—just be the way these people want you to be.’ And you have to let go of that.
