Constance Wu on the September 2018 Cover of Fashion Magazine

Constance Wu has been on the promo trail for her new film 'Crazy Rich Asians' and she is on the September 2018 cover of Fashion magazine. On the cover which was shot by Max Abadian, Constance is wearing CHRISTIAN DIOR FALL 2018, ALEXIS BITTAR earrings and COOMI bracelets. In the issue, she talks the pressure of representation, being the worst asian ever and more. Continue below to read some excepts from her interview and to see images from her fashion spread. For more on her feature, visit and pick up a copy on newsstand.

On asian representation:
I have a pretty good capacity to talk about it in such a way that it’s as clear and insightful as it can be in the moment. I actually think it’s kind of a privilege and an honour—and an obligation. 

On not always be conscious of the lack of asians:
I don’t think I was ignorant; I just didn’t have cousins or uncles or aunts around me—or anything like that either. My parents’ friends were people from the university where my dad taught, and they were all white. I just didn’t notice it.

On her acting:
With every character you go into, you create a life that brought you to where you are, in the present day of the movie. There are all these clues along the way that you get from the script. It could be something as simple as how much slang you use or if you use curse words or don’t use curse words, if you talk a lot or if you’re very quiet. So you take all those markers from the script and develop who the person is, their interior life. You want your homework to be so deep in your bones that it’s unconscious.

On worrying if speaking her mind can cost her jobs:
Of course I want to get more jobs. But at what cost? If me speaking my mind about something that I think really matters is going to take a part away from me, then that’s not a part that I want. Those aren’t people I want to work with. Not because they’re not great but because we have different values and I’m going to feel like shit the whole time I’m on that set.
