THE POWER OF INFLUENCE
GB: “My platform is for three things: Show people I’m still cute lol… highlight what’s important to me—charities, social justice and injustice, and inspirations and supporting people I love.”
GB: “Don’t take it personally! As an actor, there would be jobs that I didn’t get! The creators have a vision, and it may be someone else. What’s yours is yours.
“I was raised to treat the janitor with the same respect as the CEO, and I live by that.”
GB: “I would say to my 15-year-old self…don’t be so scared of change and life. Life changes, and most of the time, it’s for the better, and wait until you see how strong you are and what you accomplish as a woman, mom, and a visionary.”
