Elle Celebrates Women on TV with Zooey Deschanel, Mindy Kaling, Amy Poehler & Allison Williams


Elle is celebrating the smartest, funniest, small-screen stars we all love, starting with four of television’s leading ladies: Zooey Deschanel, Mindy Kaling, Amy Poehler, and Allison Williams, who each are starring on the own February cover of the glossy.

“There’s no denying that funny ladies are having a major moment, so devoting our Women in TV Issue to women making comedy was a must,” Robbie Myers said, Elle’s editor-in-chief. “The covers we shot with Zooey Deschanel, Mindy Kaling, Amy Poehler and Allison Williams, are all distinctive, just like their personalities—both onscreen and off. Their collective confidence, wit, and ability to stay grounded in the face of such a tremendous success make them exactly the kind of women we love to feature in Elle.”

Cover girl Poehler said it best. “I like to do things that challenge me and make me nervous. You learn early as an actor that creating your own materials is the only way to have any control. Hollywood is like a bad boyfriend. You can’t stand around and wait to be asked to dance.”

Now, however will we chose which cover to pick up at the newsstand?!
