Vanity Fair on Tuesday dropped its star-studded Hollywood issue to celebrate Tinseltown’s best “who pushed storytelling forward with hope and humanity during a surreal year.

The eye-popping 27th annual issue called “A Fantasia in Ten Acts” features Michael B. Jordan, Charlize Theron, Zendaya, Sacha Baron Cohen, Maya Rudolph doing a spilt, Michaela Coel, Spike Lee, LaKeith Stanfield on top of a white horse, Awkwafina and Dan Levy.

The 2021 Hollywood portfolio “portrays a magical dreamscape representing not only that the show must go on, but that there’s joy in its continuance,” Vanity Fair said in a press release.

In the issue, which hits newsstands on March 2, the stars “speak candidly about how interpreting this year’s events has become central to their work, and how the transformation the entertainment industry has undergone could present an opportunity for more lasting, positive change.”

Inside, one photo shows Theron donning a Richard Quinn coat and boxing gloves while standing in a boxing ring alongside a roaring bear before a canyon backdrop.

In answering what has made her the angriest and what gives her hope from this past year, Theron responded, “It’s hard to try to quantify what, amongst the horrible events that we’ve had in this last year, are the worst.

“They are all pretty f–king sh-tty,” she continued. “Dealing with a virus and the amount of human loss that we’ve had—that’s pretty f–king sh-tty. The pain and the suffering that I have seen my friends of color go through during this period…I mean, I’m hoping it’s an awakening.”

“The Old Guard” actress also referred to the Jan. 6 US Capitol riot as “all pretty f–king sad.”

“The only thing that makes me feel like I can think of the glass as half full, instead of half empty, is that I’m hoping that out of a lot of this really deep, deep, deep pain and suffering, we will come to realize that we can’t keep going this way,” she said.

Artists Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari directed 10 photo shoots across four continents for the issue “using modern techniques that allowed VF to minimize on-set personnel and maximize COVID-19 protocol,” the magazine said.

Biden Officials Visited U.S.-Mexico Border Saturday Amid Migrant Influx

By Jeff Mason

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas led a visit by Biden administration officials to the U.S. border with Mexico on Saturday amid a growing number of border crossings and criticism by Republicans that an immigration crisis is brewing.

President Joe Biden, a Democrat, has sought to reverse rigid immigration polices set up by his predecessor, former President Donald Trump, whose 2016 election and four-year presidency were dominated in part by his efforts to build a border wall and reduce the number of legal and illegal migrants coming into the United States.

Biden has faced criticism from immigration activists, too, who say unaccompanied migrant children and families are being held too long in detention centers instead of being released while their asylum applications are considered.

The White House said last week Biden had asked senior members of his staff to travel to the border to report back about the influx of unaccompanied minors making crossings. It declined at the time to release details about the timing of the trip, citing security and privacy concerns.

Mayorkas and other officials, including Biden's domestic policy adviser Susan Rice, visited a border patrol facility and a refugee resettlement facility during their Saturday trip, the White House said in a statement on Sunday.

"They discussed capacity needs given the number of unaccompanied children and families arriving at our border, the complex challenges with rebuilding our gutted border infrastructure and immigration system, as well as improvements that must be made in order to restore safe and efficient procedures to process, shelter, and place unaccompanied children with family or sponsors," the White House said.

"Officials also discussed ways to ensure the fair and humane treatment of immigrants, the safety of the workforce, and the wellbeing of communities nearby in the face of a global pandemic."

An influx of people seeking to cross the U.S. border is likely to be a big issue in the 2022 midterm elections; Trump may use it to rally his base against Biden and lay the groundwork for a potential return as a presidential candidate in 2024 or as a way to boost another Republican successor.

"The border is breaking down as I speak. Immigration in 2022 will be a bigger issue than it was in 2016," Republican Senator Lindsey Graham told Fox News's "Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo" program. Graham is a close ally of Trump.
