TheWrap is making a statement as it reaches its 15th anniversary, and it features the stars of Feud: Capote vs. The Swans on the cover. TheWrap was initially introduced in 2009 by its founder, CEO, and Editor-in-Chief, Sharon Waxman.

Feud: Capote vs. The Swans was based on the true story of elitist Truman Capote, and how he took advantage and betrayed the trust of a group of women who had looked at him as a trusted companion and friend. Upon discovering his betrayal, the group of women came together to tear Truman Capote down.

The show's biggest stars, Diane Lane, Calista Flockhart, Chloë Sevigny, Molly Ringwald, and Naomi Watts, do not just grace the cover, but they are also featured in interviews that highlight their individual journeys. Their featured discussions show them talk about their own stardom as well as how Truman Capote's high society has an ongoing legacy that has lasted the test of time.

According to TheWrap, a few highlights and snippets from their discussions with the cast include conversations from Chloë Sevigny and Naomi Watts.

""I think that the Swans were able to maintain a level of mystery and mystique that is very hard to maintain nowadays. And I think when that was broken, it was a real assault. I think that's why the feud began because they were so protected by their husbands, even by society that wanted them to be a certain thing. So, for that facade to be broken, it was like, "Well, they're not used to that." It was almost like the old Hollywood system where they were protected.

I think that we've all had our private lives exposed in certain ways over the years that maybe we didn't feel comfortable with. So there was that to draw on. For me, at least.""

Chloë Sevigny

""It's usually just you and a bunch of guys. Maybe a sister or a daughter--or the other woman, of course! To be a group of women rooting for each other! We've given up on that competitive BS in our lives by now.""

Naomi Watts

This is also a big move for TheWrap as this is the first issue to unveil its new logo, a testament to what can be expected from the following installments.

Diane Lane, Calista Flockhart, Chloë Sevigny, Molly Ringwald, and Naomi Watts have experience in the entertainment industry and can speak to the conflicts of fame, crafting intricate relationships, and how their real-life experiences as performers in the public eye can mirror how Truman Capote captured the high society elite.

Over the years, people's views of how much of someone's life could be shared, or is shared by the individual, have changed. But, something that can not be refuted is that years after Truman Capote's actions, people are just as excited about the personal lives of their favorite actors, actresses, musicians, and athletes. Although the delivery of information may be different, society has not changed that much, and people are invested in the lives of the rich and powerful.

You can watch Feud: Capote vs. The Swans on Hulu and be sure to look out for what is to come from the future of TheWrap.
