The August issue of italian Vanity Fair featured Masters of Sex, and scans are now added to the gallery, thanks to Annie from Emily Blunt Fans.
Lizzy is Playboy’s July/August 20Q’s subject, and on this issue she talks about the obvious things like her on-camera nudity, and some not-so-obvious things, like her admiration for men who wear tighty-whities. You can check HQ scans added in our gallery, and also the photoshoot. Enjoy!
In THR’s roundtable, six Emmy contenders – Jessica Lange, 66 (American Horror Story: Freak Show), Lizzy Caplan, 32 (Masters of Sex); Viola Davis, 49 (How to Get Away With Murder); Ruth Wilson, 33 (The Affair); Taraji P. Henson, 44 (Empire); and Maggie Gyllenhaal, 37 (The Honorable Woman) — speak candidly about the current climate in a conversation about nudity and typecasting. This can be found on current The Hollywood Reporter issue, which cover is already added in our gallery.
You can read the amazing chat on The Hollywood Reporter website, and check the pretty photoshoot added in our gallery.
Our previous gallery didn’t have magazine scans, so for now I have a few ones added from my own collection. I know its missing a lot and also its a work in progress – we’re accepting donations, if you have some we don’t in our gallery, send me an email.
Lizzy is featured on February issue of Elle magazine, on the session Women in TV, of course due her work on Master of Sex. I have added the high quality photoshoot and the digital scan (this one thanks to eden Liao) to our gallery.
Lizzy Caplan anticipated having to do a lot of explaining about Masters of Sex, Showtime’s bio series about the pioneering midcentury sex researchers William Masters and Virginia Johnson, after she landed the role of the latter. When filming began on the streets of Manhattan, she recalls, “We told people we were shooting a toothpaste commercial, because we didn’t want to have to explain that it wasn’t porn.”
What it was—and remains—is a richly textured look into the lives of the tortured, taciturn obstetrician Masters (played by Michael Sheen) and his research partner, Caplan’s Johnson, a powder keg of simmering ambition and sensuality in pencil skirts. “One glaring thing the show exposes,” says Caplan, 32, who last year earned an Emmy nod for the part, “is how little forward momentum there has been for women.”
The daughter of an L.A. lawyer (her mother died when she was 13), she gained early notice in cult shows such as Party Down and Freaks and Geeks, as well as her turn as a pot-smoking cynic in 2012’s Bachelorette. Now—after starring in this winter’s comedy The Interview, with Seth Rogen—she’s focusing on Masters’ upcoming third season. As for her place in the Hollywood power complex, “I would like to meet those people who are just fully in the moment and not thinking about what their next job means,” she says. “But right now, today? I am feeling very lucky.”
