Sophia Bush Says She Almost Passed On 'Chicago PD'

Sophia Bush Says She Almost Passed On 'Chicago PD'

Sophia Bush is stunning on the cover of Michigan Avenue magazine’s Spring 2015 issue, out on newsstands now!

Here’s what the 32-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On the evolution of TV shows: “Television has grown as an industry—when I was a little kid, there were only a handful of channels, and now there’s a thousand to choose from. That has widened avenues that we have for storytelling because we’re not looking at shows the way we used to. I grew up watching reruns of Dragnet on Nick at Nite, and I thought those guys were the coolest cops ever. That was a great black and white era. There was crime, and then they solved it, and that was that. With the advent of typical storytelling, you crave getting to know people—not just watching them do something, but seeing who they are, and why they tick, and the good, the bad, and the ugly.”

On how she almost passed on Chicago PD because she was happy to be back in LA after years on location for One Tree Hill: “I get this call and my agent said, ‘Dick Wolf is doing this show, and they really want to see you for the lead female, and it shoots in Chicago,’ and I’m like, ‘No way. Chicago’s so cold, it’s so far away, I don’t know anybody there… I’m not going.’ … And they were like, ‘But Sophia, it’s literally two of the three criteria for a job you’ve ever wanted. You could just read it.’ And I said, ‘All right.’ I was protesting, but not much, because in the back of my head I was so excited… And I read it, and I just got her. I thought she was interesting, and different, and I just thought it was so cool… you know what that feeling is like: When you read a script and from the first moment it gets its hooks in you? I just went, ‘Uh-oh.’ [Laughs] I knew I was in trouble.”

On why she fights for the environmental awareness: “I honestly think it’s a no-brainer, and some of that comes from growing up in Southern California—spending all my time as a kid exploring beaches and the sea and the mountains, and just realizing that we’re such a small part of this giant planet in this enormous ecosystem, yet we wreak the most havoc on it. No matter what we might argue about amongst ourselves or what we might fight wars about around the world, if there’s no world left to host us, none of it’s going to matter. If we kill the planet, that’s it. When the president of the United States is saying that climate change poses a greater threat to American citizens than terrorism, people are finally opening their eyes and realizing that the world doesn’t exist for us to trample and use. It’s all supposed to be more symbiotic, and I really hope that citizens will start to demand that change both from the companies where they spend their money and the governments they elect to represent them.”

Sophia Bush Describes Her Perfect Sunday Morning for 'Good Housekeeping'

Sophia Bush Describes Her Perfect Sunday Morning for 'Good Housekeeping'

Sophia Bush is super chic in denim for this Good Housekeeping feature.

The 32-year-old actress opened up to the glossy about fashion, food, and more. Check it:

On her home style: “I’m much more put together on a day off than when I go in to work. I love how fashion allows you to express your mood, whether you’re wearing a high-waisted leather culotte, a cropped sweater and pumps, or a vintage dress from the 1940s.”

On her fave indulgence: “Food! My family is mostly Italian, so if I could survive on bread, pasta, and olive oil for the rest of my life, I would. Brunch is my specialty; I’ll make really amazing thick-cut French toast, a giant frittata — and mimosas!”

On her perfect Sunday morning: “Being home in Los Angeles, sleeping in, and then taking my three dogs on a hike or going to a farmers’ market.”

Sophia Bush Emphasizes The Importance Of Quality Roles For Women in Bello Mag

Sophia Bush Emphasizes The Importance Of Quality Roles For Women in Bello Mag

Sophia Bush is absolutely breathtaking on the March 2015 cover of Bello mag.

The 32-year-old Chicago P.D. actress opened up about her character on the hit NBC show.

“I love playing a woman who is such a badass, but the thing that I love about Erin, and that I love when I examine Dick Wolf shows on a larger scale, is that he doesn’t ask his female characters to be any one thing,” Sophia dished. “That’s why women relate to [Law & Order: SVU’s] Olivia Benson and are now relating to Erin Lindsay: because rather than being treated as a sidekick or an accessory, as women so often are in scripts, they are real complex human beings.”

Sophia also touched on the roles women are offered in the industry.

“The reason women get frustrated by a lack of quality roles is that we want to play people who are as real, and as damaged, and as interesting as we are, as our friends are, [and] as our families are,” she shared. “So I think, more than anything, having a role like this one allows you to feel like you’ve made a really good decision. When you spend every waking moment – ten months out of the year – on set, you wanna make sure you’re doing something that is inspiring and invigorating, and something that you believe in.”

The March 2015 issue of Bello is now available on all digital devices.

Sophia Bush Throws a Galentine's Day Party With Friends

Sophia Bush makes a quick run to her local pharmacy in Los Angeles on Friday afternoon (February 13).

Later that night, the 32-year-old actress joined some friends for a fun “Galentine’s” party.

“#galentinesday with my best gals. A perfect 4 hour dinner thanks to @smokeoilsalt, aka our favorite new restaurant in LA. How did I get so lucky!? #happiness #forfriendship #sisterwives #wifelife,” Sophia wrote on Instagram.

Sophia recently chatted with THR about heading behind the camera on Chicago P.D.

“I would love to, but it’s complicated because of the shooting schedule. My co-workers and I, from Fire and P.D., we’ve actually been talking about maybe taking this second half of the season and writing a short together,” she shared. “We’re stuck in Chicago and it’s freezing and we don’t want to go outside. So I sort of was like, ‘Well why don’t we do something other than sit on the couch and spitball at each other?’ So we’ll see. It’s tough because when you have a little bit of free time at this point of the year, everyone’s trying to go home because we’re homesick.”
