Laura Dern on the February 2019 Cover of Vanity Fair Magazine

For their February 2019 cover, Vanity Fair chose Laura Dern. On the cover which was shot by Julia Hetta, Laura is wearing a CALVIN KLEIN SPRING 2019 dress & NINA RUNSDORF earrings. In the issue, she talks Big Little Lies, Little Women, and growing up in Hollywood. Continue below to read some excerpts from Laura's interview.

I started making movies as an 11-year-old, so I was on location at 13, which is a different thing. I remember every compromised situation. I was a child, and adults took advantage of me or tried, and I justified the behavior as me misunderstanding it.

On what she wants as an actor:
