  1. I love this actress. Born beautiful, she has much more to her than beauty. I love that she uses her brain, too.

  2. Such an inspiring speech! Words to live by “You can’t eat beauty, it doesn’t sustain you!”

  3. I love this woman. True natural beauty. Finally people recognize beauty without the bleaching, the long horse hair, the heavy make up. Her skin is so radiant and it has a perfect glow to it.
