Pamela Adlon, the writer, director, and lead actress of the semi-autobiographical show Better Things, is the Cut’s cover woman this March. She spoke to Molly Fischer for the Cut’s podcast, The Cut on Tuesdays; stay tuned for the full interview to come out next week.

While waiting for her hairstylist to flat-iron her hair in preparation for a meeting with former-president Barack Obama, Adlon talked to Fischer about her unlikely career path, which has led her from the sidelines of Hollywood to a lead role on King of the Hill to her own show, which just turned to FX for its third season. “You can’t rest on your laurels because there are no laurels. You have to anticipate things,” she said.

In a warm and sunny photo shoot with photographer Catherine Servel, Adlon played fashion chameleon in Hermes, Giorgio Armani, Proenza Schouler, Dries van Noten, and Marc Jacobs, transforming herself just as she’s transformed throughout her career. “Pamela is a hard-working, intelligent, and multi-layered woman, and that’s exactly what I wanted to capture,” Servel told the Cut. “She was willing to play and explore, and I think it’s really something you see in the images.”
