In the afternoon I take a sauna, a hot sauna. I use water with essential oils on it so it becomes steamy. It’s not infrared; it’s just a pure hot sauna. Then I get into my cold plunge. The dopamine hit you get is so, and I shouldn’t say, it’s like a drug. I actually haven’t taken a drug that gives you a dopamine hit, but that’s what this does. And it lasts a long time.
I honestly think you’ve just inspired me to try a cold plunge. That really does sound amazing.
Do it. Really, it’s worth it.
What is your favorite emoji?
I do the one with my hands up. I don’t know. Maybe I like the one with the eyes that are, what do you call it? The eyes are in a certain, what do you call that? Well, I do the ones with my eyes when I’m rolling my eyes up. That’s a big one. Or I do the, “Oops, sorry.” The ones with all the teeth. Oh, I like the face with the three hearts and one on the top because that’s like a blushing, “Oh, my gosh, you’re so sweet,” that kind of thing.
If you could change one thing about beauty perceptions in Hollywood, what would that be?
There are so many filters when you’re doing stories or you’re filming yourself. Those selfies that I’m like, Why are you doing that? Everyone knows that’s not what you look like, that’s so stupid.
Also, [the idea that] having bigger lips makes you sexier, or more appealing, that is a big one. I guess you can try it, if it’s one of those ones you can have removed. But a lot of times, people don’t realize things catch up with you and you don’t know that it’s gone too far. So I think that’s a thing, thinking more is not more. Less is always more. But that’s not the way it feels. People still think more is more.
And finally, who are the women who inspire you the most right now?
I don’t know if you’re looking for specific names, but I just find that women that have verve, who are happy with what they’re doing, I think that really inspires me. Confident, happy women, because you can really tell in someone’s eyes whether they’re connected and they are present.
