-Variety’s Power of Women covers continue to crush it, but the Michaela Coel one is spectacular. In the interview, she talks about Jane Fonda being a fan of I Will Destroy You (“I imagine if I bumped into her outside of the supermarket, we’d be nerding out on all of the hidden meanings and layers because I can see that she really gets it. She watches it the way that I dreamed the audience would watch it”), and “meeting” Kerry Washington at the SAG Awards (“I imagine, if the show was in real life, she’d be sat over there and I’d be way too shy to go over and say, ‘Hey, I’ve been watching you on my screen for decades.’ I was still too shy to say any of that on Zoom, but she knew my name. I was like ‘Oh my God, hi!’ You can’t do that in real life”)
