Demi Moore is the author of a new book ‘Inside Out’, co-written with Ariel Levy. “I wanted it to be a good book, but I didn’t feel like my skill set lent itself to be able to do that,” Moore says about enlisting Levy, an American staff writer at The New Yorker magazine since 2008.

For perspective, Ariel Levy is also the author of ‘The Rules Do Not Apply’ and the ‘Female Chauvinist Pigs: Women and the Rise of Raunch Culture’. Her New Yorker profiles include the South African runner Caster Semenya, the artist Catherine Opie, the swimmer Diana Nyad, and Edith Windsor, the plaintiff in the Supreme Court case that brought down the Defense of Marriage Act.

Natalie Portman Channels Demi Moore With Hew Own Pregnancy Photo For Vanity Fair's Hollywood Issue

In what will surely become an iconic photo, a pregnant Natalie Portman channels the 1991 photo of a naked and pregnant Demi Moore, shot for Vanity Fair's August issue. Portman joins Emma Stone, Lupita Nyong’o, Amy Adams, Natalie Portman, Ruth Negga, Dakota Fanning, Elle Fanning, Aja Naomi King, Janelle Monae, Greta Gerwig and Dakota Johnson on the cover of Vanity Fair's March 2017 Hollywood issue, also shot by Annie Leibovitz.

Vanity Fair acknowledges the inspiration, writing that while "the reference is clear, the moment is Portman's alone."

How sad that this cover was shot before the November 21 March for Women. Imagine if we had one or two Pussyhats anchored by those vivid red and pink hues.  Read my new article: Step 2 For Pussyhat Power: How About Yarnbombing America From Sea To Shining Sea?
