Queen Latifah Covers 'Good Housekeeping' Magazine January 2014
Here’s what the 43-year-old talk show host had to share with the mag:
On Hollywood beauty standards: “For a lot of the things I’ve wanted to do in life, I haven’t looked typical. I was not born a size 2. I’m not skinny, period. I’m not willing to sleep with the director or step on somebody else’s neck to get the job.”
On getting her head and her heart to get ahead in the industry: “I think I got to that place by not being happy with the other side — hating your body and criticizing yourself all the time. When I was around 18, I looked in the mirror and said, You’re either going to love yourself or hate yourself. And I decided to love myself. That changed a lot of things.”
On her New Year’s resolution: “Taking the worry of the world on my shoulders is not right. My New Year’s resolution is to stay humble and be joyous, whether that’s spending time with family, hiking, driving around, listening to music, or playing with my dog. It’s so important to take care of ourselves that way.”
