'I toss out a few more quick questions. Director you’d like to work with? "This Steve McQueen guy seems really interesting" Food guilty-pleasures? "All of them. I’m a foodie. I love it ALL" Binge-watched shows? “Downton Abbey, Orange is the New Black, American Horror Story, Homeland, Nurse Jackie. Yeah. I watch them all.” Favorite Holiday? "I have a six-year-old little girl and I try to keep as much magic in her life for as long as possible before the world intervenes. Christmas just allows so much of that."'— Gina Torres for Bello Mag
"don’t play the anxiety card"
YOU THINK THAT I USE ANXIETY AS AN EXCUSE?!
JUST BECAUSE I START TO PANIC WHEN YOU ASK ME TO DO CERTAIN THINGS DOESN’T MEAN I’M SIMPLY USING IT AS AN ESCAPE
MAYBE, JUST MAYBE, THE THINGS YOU ASK ME TO DO CAUSE ME ANXIETY, AND WHEN YOU CONFRONT ME ABOUT IT AND YELL AT ME FOR IT IT JUST MAKES IT WORSE
IT’S NOT A FUCKING CARD
This. A thousand fucking times.
