Aja Naomi King Reveals Her Hopes for Her Future

Aja Naomi King is on the cover of Shape magazine’s September 2018 issue!

Here’s what the 33-year-old How to Get Away with Murder star had to share with the mag…

On what she hopes for her future: “When I’m in my 90s, God willing, I want my body to be active – I don’t want someone else to have to take care of me. Exercise is a commitment to my independence in the future.”

On eating healthy but enjoying dessert: “I eat healthy but I also love desserts…I feed my body for energy, but I also want to feed my spirit with things that make me happy. It’s important to have a positive relationship with food. For me, there’s no such thing as a cheat day because eating isn’t cheating.”

On activism: “Activism has become so important to me. It’s about using your voice and actions to help effect change.”

Laura Harrier & Aja Naomi King Talk Representation in Hollywood at Teen Vogue Summit

Aja Naomi King and Laura Harrier pose together while attending the 2018 Teen Vogue Summit on Friday (June 1) at The New School in New York City.

The actresses were joined by Orange Is the New Black‘s Diane Guerrero and Dear White People‘s Logan Browning on a discussion about representation in Hollywood.

“I’m close to activism because I’m a black woman in America,” Laura, who is best known for her work in Spider-Man: Homecoming, said.

“It’s the little things when you have a moment to do something that feels more real or natural,” Aja added. She cited an example from How to Get Away with Murder when her character Michaela Pratt put a head wrap on before going to bed. “If I’m going to go to bed, I wanna put a head wrap on because that’s what I would do, especially if I’m comfortable in my relationship with someone. And for a lot of women online that was a big deal to them, to see that, because it feels honest. You’re seeing something that reflects yourself.”

Dear Evan Hansen stars Laura Dreyfuss and Phoenix Best also attended the summit that day.

Camila Cabello, Elle Fanning & Aja Naomi King Cover 'Glamour' April 2018!

Elle Fanning, Camila Cabello, and Aja Naomi King are on the cover of Glamour magazine’s April 2018 issue, on newsstands March 20!

Here’s what the stars had to share with the mag:

Elle, on social media: “I think it starts with what people put out there. Airbrushing is not attractive. Imperfections are what’s beautiful. I like to post funny, not-so-serious things.”

Camila, on learning to love herself: “But still, there was a period when I really wanted light eyes. It was only as I got older that I was like, ‘I like my brown eyes, I like my black hair, I like my skin. I don’t need to be blond and blue-eyed.’ There are still things I’m insecure about, like my crooked teeth, but I think part of beauty is accepting imperfections. The more I meet people and see the world, the more I realize it’s those little quirks—a birthmark, a crooked tooth, a scar—that makes you you. As they say with art: Perfect is boring.”

Aja, on beauty rituals from her family: “Growing up, I observed [confidence] in my mother—for a young black woman in the job market having to prove herself, makeup became a thing that said, ‘I am flawless, and you cannot critique that.’I am flawless, and you cannot critique that.’ I watched her use it as a kind of armor. And I was able to grow into that boldness as well. There’s nothing like walking into an audition room and knowing that you are immediately being judged.”
