VIDEO: Behind the Scenes of THR's Rule Breakers 2011 Magazine Shoot
Nine months in the making, The Hollywood Reporter's inaugural year-end portfolio of entertainment's biggest risk takers features a who's-who of Hollywood.
The 22-page special issue, out this week, includes industry veterans -- George Lucas, James Cameron, Diane Sawyer, Matt Lauer, among others -- TV newcomers Liz Meriweather and Zooey Deschanel of Fox's New Girl as well as Suburgatory's Emily Kapnek and Jane Levy -- and familiar faces, like Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner and Betheny Frankel.
"I think it's great when a movie like this does well because I hear that women are more than half the population; so shouldn't half of the movies, or 52 percent be like this?" Bridesmaids rule-breaker Judd Apatow jokes during the shoot. Adds star Melissa McCarthy, "I don't know, I can't do numbers!"
