Hollywood’s Heavy Hitters Show Up To Praise Ryan Murphy For VH1 Trailblazer Honors
Julia Roberts, Angela Bassett, Connie Britton, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates and more showed up to honor Ryan Murphy at the 2018 VH1 Trailblazers honors.
“There is a big reality in Hollywood that women are put out to pasture,” Sarah said in a clip. “Just when that is happening, Ryan does the thing of pulling them all close to him and saying, ‘Oh no, these are the stories I want to celebrate.’”
“The last few years working with him have rejuvenated me in a way that I never expected my third act to be,” Kathy added.
Ryan himself said in the clip, “They know what it’s like to be an outsider. They supported me because they inherently understood the idea and struggle and ultimate joy of championing the ideals and sentiment of those without cultural power.”
