Oh Ms. Tyson is giving us all of this fabulousness at 92!!! #slayingus #blackdontcrack #hunnayhush #styleinspiration  #repost @becauseofthem (@get_repost) ・・・ Love this! At 92, the legendary Cicely Tyson flawlessly covers Elle Magazine's Women in Hollywood issue. 🙌🏾 In it, Tyson talks about women who influenced her career, one being Vinnette Carroll, the first African American woman to direct a production on Broadway. "At the very beginning of my career, I had a teacher whose name was Vinnette Carroll; she directed a number of Broadway shows. She kept saying to me, 'You know the problem with beautiful women? They tend to rely on their beauty.' And I said, How wrong she is! I never think of myself as being beautiful. I thought, What are you talking about? I work so hard. And I did. But I learned from her how important it is to learn your craft. When all else fails, you will land on that, and that alone." Elle's 2017 Women in Hollywood also include: Tessa Thompson, Laura Dern, Jessica Chastain, Margot Robbie, Riley Keough, Jennifer Lawrence, and Kathleen Kennedy.
