get to know me: 1/5 actresses; dianna agron
“after the first season of Glee, i felt this sense of relief. i was doing what I set out to do and had people’s respect again. i was again comfortable in my body, as a woman, and then a whole new range of exploration was allowed—at least in my mind. it was the right time for it. i traveled as much as i could, took in people’s stories, experimented in different ways, it all has informed who i am today. ”

diannaagron I know you’ve heard me talk about this movie a fair amount, but for good reason. I am so unbelievably proud of this group of women - plus those that are missing from this photo. The love and support we’ve received for our film is quite touching. I love making indie films - you only hope they get to have their day in court. This one is having quite the time, and I am beyond thrilled. #NOVITIATE

My early teens were for mosh pits, crowd surfing, going to concerts on my own, lying our way backstage. Then in high school, there was drinking, sneaking out of the house, staying out late with friends—but everything [was] in good fun, fairly innocent. I was confident and free in a beautiful way. Then I moved to Los Angeles and, looking back, I find it interesting to reflect on how things changed. I was fierce in my pursuit of my career, but timid and shy in front of new people, mainly because there was a fair degree of hazing from strangers. I can’t tell you how many times you hear, “Oh, you’re an aspiring actress? So which bar do you work at?” Or, the odd moment of being sexually challenged, harassed, etc. I had my guard up for a long while. Finally after the first season of Glee, I felt this sense of relief. I was doing what I set out to do and had people’s respect again. I was again comfortable in my body, as a woman, and then a whole new range of exploration was allowed—at least in my mind. It was the right time for it. I traveled as much as I could, took in people’s stories, experimented in different ways, it all has informed who I am today.
