“You have to speak out about stuff, you have to use your voice for good. That’s what I think a lot of people are starting to do. I didn’t have anybody who was doing that when I was younger. I grew up in the era of really, really skinny celebrities. That was the look. And it was cool to be seen partying. Drugs were glamorized, and when I was 12 or 13, nobody was talking about mental illness. Nobody was talking about eating disorders. Nobody was talking about cutting. I wanted somebody for my little sister to look up to. I took on that role because I knew it was important.”
gwyneth paltrow- “You know, out of all the people that I’ve had the good fortune to work with, these two particular guys and that triumvirate that we form together, it’s a very special friendship and decade plus of time together.”
“I’ve spent probably too much time thinking about how my life could’ve been, so now I try to just have a sense of gratitude for how it is. I’ve never wanted to be the kind of person who’s like, “Oh, I wish I had a different life.” This is just kind of how it worked out for me. I’m at the point where I know the value of my privacy, and I understand how the system works, and once I realized and accepted that part of it I’ve become a little bit more fearless. I view it as a small price to pay for being able to have the life I have now.”
If I had one hour left on Earth I would spend it just sitting and talking with my brother and sister, my two favorite people on in the world. Day 12 of the September challenge by @journaling-junkie; my sister, Ellie, is @elinorsroses. Also I decided to break out my fall inks.
