“My favorite book is “To Kill a Mocking Bird” and Atticus Finch — I’m going to butcher it — says something about: You don’t judge a person until you’ve worn their skin and walked around it. As an actress, I get to wear other people’s skin. In doing so, it make me feel bigger than myself. Sometimes America, especially, can be a self-centered nation. The more variety of women I play, the more it reminds me of the variety of people in the world and that we’re all connected,” Jessica recently shared to the Boston Herald.

FYI: Jessica is wearing a Roland Mouret dress.
