Redbook Magazine: March 2017 – America Ferrera

Superstore‘s America Ferrera is featured in the March 2017 issue of Redbook Magazine.

In the issue:

On finding balance: “When I was younger, I felt like everything was make or break. In my career and my relationships, there was a right way or a wrong way—and I had to fit into the right box. I’ve let go of those narrow definitions and found a balance.”

On stepping up and taking chances in Hollywood: “We talk about a lot of things we want to see more women doing. We want more women producers, more women writers, more women directors– and you can only say that so many times before you say, ‘I’m a woman. What’s stopping me from doing this?’ I’ve had to ask myself: Why not me?

On representing women and Latinas while staying true to herself: “It is true that I represent women, and it is true that I represent Latinas, but it’s also true that I’m myself. My successes and my failures don’t have to have this enormous weight on them; they can just be mine. Whatever moves you forward, focus on it. Whatever handicaps you or paralyzes you, that’s the thing to get rid of.”

On how there’s more to a woman’s value than her appearance: “I grew up believing a lot of things about myself that I had to unlearn– things that pertain to being a good woman, things about my weight or height… As women, you’re taught that your value is all about your appearance, not your ideas and your tenacity and your courage and your bravery and your adventurous spirit. Look, I love getting dressed up and looking beautiful. But that’s one tiny piece of me.”

Superstore airs Thursdays at 8/7c on NBC.

SHAPE Magazine: March 2017 – Michelle Monaghan

The Path star Michelle Monaghan is featured in the March 2017 issue of SHAPE Magazine.

In the issue:

Being healthy and happy is all about balance—that’s the mantra Michelle Monaghan lives by. So while she loves to exercise, she doesn’t sweat it if her hectic schedule means she can’t swing a workout. She eats healthfully but also indulges her cravings for Quarter Pounders and keeps six kinds of cheese in her fridge. She doesn’t own a scale and is more excited about what exercise does for her mentally than how it makes her look. “I’m a firm believer in everything in moderation and not beating myself up,” says Michelle, 40.

That philosophy came in handy last year when she was crazed filming two movies and a TV show. Michelle is currently starring with Mark Wahlberg in Patriots Day, about the Boston marathon bombing, and with Jamie Foxx in the thriller Sleepless. Her Hulu TV series The Path, about a family involved in a controversial New Age spiritualist movement, just returned for a second season. Michelle spent months trying to fit quick exercise sessions into her shooting schedule whenever she could—and not freaking out when she couldn’t.

Fortunately, the mom of two (her daughter, Willow, is 8, and her son, Tommy, is 3) thrives on challenges. She took up surfing last year, and she’s seriously considering running the New York City Marathon this year. “It’s good to set goals,” Michelle says. “They help shape a healthy outlook on your life.” Listen in as she shares how she maintains her sanity-preserving attitude and achieves success on her own terms.

She loves her roving workout routine.

“I hike in the morning if I can, after I drop the kids off at school. If not, I’ll go for a run. Typically, I’ll do 30 minutes, which is a three-mile run for me. I started doing Pilates, too, and it’s really challenging. I find that it’s a good balance for my running, which makes my muscles tight. Pilates loosens me up. I also love SoulCycle. I played a Spin instructor in a movie, and at the time I thought, There’s no way I’m getting on a bike. But SoulCycle had just opened in L.A., so I went with friends. The lights were off, candles were burning, and we were hooked. It’s like church!

She’s a big believer in dialing down, too.

“When I’m not shooting, I aim to work out at least three times a week. But if I’m filming, I rarely make it to the gym. With The Path, I’d go to the park and run maybe once a week. Or I’d do squats and push-ups in my trailer. On shoot days, I start at about five in the morning and don’t get home until seven at night, so it’s hard to find time for exercise. I throw myself a bone and don’t get too worried about it. I know that when I have time again, I can kick it up a notch.

Exercise is for her brain as much as her body.

“I get crabby when I don’t work out. Just ask my husband! [Laughs.] I really depend on exercising to relieve stress. Last week, I was overwhelmed and I thought, I need to go for a run or a hike to clear my head. I had a to-do list that was a mile long, and I didn’t know what to tackle first. When I run, it helps put everything into place.

There are healthy things she just won’t eat—and she’s OK with that.

“I have never liked fruit. To make up for it, I have a green juice every morning, which is totally devoid of fruit but has tons of vitamins from vegetables. A typical day of eating for me is eggs or oatmeal for breakfast, soup or salad for lunch, and fish or meat and lots of veggies for dinner.”

She celebrates her body for what it can do.

“I love my shape because I know what it’s capable of—running 13 miles, having two children, and learning to surf. I love my body so much; it’s profoundly amazing. I have enormous gratitude for it.”

The Path airs Wednesdays at on HULU.
