Taylor Schilling Talks Liberating Prison Beauty in 'Allure'!

Taylor Schilling Talks Liberating Prison Beauty in 'Allure'!

Taylor Schilling graces the cover of Allure magazine’s July 2014 issue, out on newsstands on Monday, June 30!

Here’s what the 29-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On the prison beauty & fashion of her hit show Orange Is the New Black: “It’s totally liberating. There’s freedom in not having to make it about how my jeans fit or what my boobs look like in a top. All I have to do now is play.”

On her current approach to her looks: “I don’t feel bound by my face or my body. I don’t feel like that’s the biggest gift I have to offer the world. I feel like there are more parts of me to offer than that.”

On her belief that she was ugly growing up: “It was tough at home, and it was tough at school…. And my experience was painful, so painful. There was a period of time I had very short hair, and I had glasses, and I was very tall for my age.”

    My thoughts is that guys would get a tear tattoo when they wanted something to do, that is here in australia. I don’t exactly know what a tear tattoo means there. One guy here died before he was 50 had that tattoo, been to jail, was a grandfather. Very pushy man and I only ever gave him the time of day because I knew his kids were good kids.
    I remember when they said “primer grey is the new candy apple red”. I seen maybe one car that was done in grey on the tv, they’d rather color something black than go to grey every time.
    Fact is Eddie Murphy looke great in a red Ferrari (orange would be alright too), what was missing was the african american girl in the passenger seat. Everyone enjoys a Jaffa! (orange flavor red treat).

    Crime does not pay as well as politics.
    Well not nowadays by the looks, $30k a month is a bit rich as a model.

    I think lovejoy would be rolling over in his grave, prisons I guess are taking over American life. How do you reform and help pay for an ever growing system and releasee’s and potential addicts?
    One prison has pink wearing inmates, another boot camp, another quarantine, lifestyles of the rich & famous prisoners, lockups & holding cells..
    Nothing at the moment is clear at any rate, is this show like a mother of all search engines, mother of all prison shows? hence good, bad and ugly?

    I’m glad she ditched the glasses, Taylor has feminine and looks to give an interesting tv show.
