#Interview: @TiffanyHaddish, @JaneFonda And The Hollywood Reporter (@THR) Comedy Actress Roundtable

Hollywood, CA (Hollywood Reporter) — “It doesn't have to peak and then be all downhill. I am over the hill in a chronological sense, but there is a whole vista out there that I didn't anticipate.” #GraceAndFrankie star @Janefonda says to “embrace it all” when it comes to a career thr.cm/8dwmcv.

Jane Fonda, Tiffany Haddish, Maya Rudolph, Natasha Lyonne, Regina Hall, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Alex Borstein sound off in The Hollywood Reporter's Comedy Actress Roundtable.

Many of the women seated around the table at Line 204 Studios in late April already know one another. Forever's Maya Rudolph, 46, and Russian Doll's Natasha Lyonne, 40, did a short stint as roommates in the '90s and now share a production company. Rudolph and Haddish famously presented together at the 2018 Oscars, prompting fan petitions to bring them back as co-hosts. (For the record, they are both down.) Haddish and Black Monday's Regina Hall, 48, co-starred in 2017 summer smash Girls Trip, which grossed $141 million worldwide and will purportedly get a sequel. And though Alex Borstein, 46, who lives with her family in Barcelona when she isn't filming The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel in New York, is meeting everyone for the first time, she did just catch Waller-Bridge's acclaimed stage show, a 65-minute monologue that formed the basis for her similarly acclaimed Amazon series of the same name (the writer-star's two-month New York revival of the show wrapped April 14).
Over the course of an hour and a half, the assembled actresses reflected on the politics of onscreen nudity, their mothers' influence and the parts they were (and weren't) allowed to play.Many of the women seated around the table at Line 204 Studios in late April already know one another.
