Sophia Bush gets really into a story while sitting down for her interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday (April 30) in New York City.
Earlier in the day, the 31-year-old Chicago P.D. star donned all pink while heading to her appearance on The Today Show where she opened up about her favorite charity, I Am That Girl.
“I’ve spent so much time talking to women about, ‘Hey, I may be on TV and I may be photographed for magazines, but I don’t think I’m perfect. I don’t wake up in the morning and look in the mirror and go, Hey, I’m amazing!’ That’s not how it is,” Sophia said. “I’m a women and it’s a struggle for all of us.”
She continued, “And it took me until this point in my life at 31 to say, ‘Hey, yeah I’m going to embrace my body and own it for me, not anyone else. And I’m curvy. I’m not some rail-thin, 6-foot-tall runway model who was just born that way. I was born like this. And that’s A-OK.’ And the conversations that have sort of come out of that, the conversations about feeling empowered in our skin rather than comparing ourselves to other women have been a really great byproduct actually of that whole shoot.”
