Cover Girl: SNL’s Leslie Jones on ELLE
On July 15, SNL cast member and stand-up comedian, Leslie Jones will be blasting a few ghosts in the all-female reboot of Ghostbusters.
But this month the emerging funny chick is gracing the cover of ELLE Magazine in their salute to “Women in Comedy.” And she has a true supporter in filmmaker Ava DuVernay who shared the cover on Twitter.

In the cover story, Jones speaks on her rising success, stating, “I just knew that I was funny, and I knew that it was just a matter of time. I didn’t know what was going to actually happen—this is definitely way bigger than I thought—but I knew there was no way I was going to be that funny and nobody was going to notice it.”
Get it, Les! Congrats.
