Laverne Cox: 'I'm Not Being Delusional About How Fabulous Or Amazing I Am'

Laverne Cox keeps it chic and sophisticated while attending the Times Talks Presents An Evening with Laverne Cox held at the Times Center on Tuesday (August 25) in New York City.

The 31-year-old actress recently sat down with Yahoo Style to discuss her advice from Jane Fonda, transgender activism, and her upcoming role in the CBS drama Doubt.

On her rise to fame: “I understand that my rise, if you will, has happened at a specific time culturally. It’s a confluence of a lot of things around diversity and racial politics, and it’s about a whole community of trans people speaking up and being more vocal about who they are. I’m not being delusional about how fabulous or amazing I am. These moments pass.”

Advice she got from Jane Fonda about how to cope with the attention: “She told me she meditated for 45 minutes daily, nonnegotiable. I’m not there yet. But having a spiritual connection is really important to me. I believe in God, and I pray, and I try to breathe in the things I’m grateful for, which is meditative for me. And when I skimp on that, I get more irritable and anxious, so it’s essential to my health and well-being.”

On her role as Cameron Wirth in new CBS courtroom drama Doubt: “She’s super passionate about winning but also about justice, and I get to flex my intellectual muscles as an attorney, which is great. . . It’s great, and it’ll happen not on my time but God’s time — and CBS’s time.”
