What is your skincare and hair care routine?
My skincare routine is my diet eating well and hanging upside down. All the blood rising to the head most is great for the skin.
I have to say that hair care is the thing I spend the least time on. My hair is pretty healthy so I am fortunate in that regard, but I do love Aveda shampoo and conditioners.
You produced and starred in The Gymnast (film) (2006) which took
home 28 festival awards, including Best Feature at Outfest, Newfest and Frameline, and demonstrated your aerial skills. How did the idea come about? Looking back share a memory that has stayed on with you and you would like to share with upcoming stars?
I love filmmaking. I have produced three films; The Gymnast (2007), A Marine Story (2010) and recently, The Aerialist (2019). Acting, Producing, Choreographing, Stunt Co-ordination a film is a lot like running back to back Marathons 20 days in a row. It is a grueling process that takes endurance and stubborn determination but I find it very gratifying. This year, I produced The Aerialist a follow up to The Gymnast. It follows Jane Hawkins, the character that I played in The Gymnast, fifteen years later. We are currently in post-production, and the project should be finished this fall. Look for The Aerialist on Amazon Prime and follow our Facebook page and #theaerialistmovie on Instagram.
Creative projects are my favorite path to friendships, pulling toward a common goal is a very bonding experience.
One of the most gratifying things I have experienced was a few years after The Gymnast was released. I met a young man who told me that his mother had left his family for relationship with a woman when he was a child, and seeing The Gymnast made her see her as a human being he could sympathize with after seeing the film.
Your view on Women Fitness and message for our viewers?
Fitness is its own best reward. A strong body is a wonderful asset for facing challenges we cannot anticipate. And above all can support us in the opportunity to help others – being a shoulder for someone who can’t walk well, lifting an elderly person out of a wheelchair onto a bed, assisting a friend in a move, carrying groceries for someone who is unable…the list goes on and on. Fitness is a wonderful gift with which to help others.
