TRACEE ELLIS ROSS COVERS UPTOWN MAGAZINE!
Tracee Ellis Ross is one of my favorite Hollywood Fashionistas! She covers the March 2012 cover of Uptown Magazine, looking very reminisce of her SuperGorge mom! In the issue Tracee talks about how Joan from Girlfriends (gosh I miss that show) and Carla from Reed Between The Lines are a like but very different!Tracee even dished on having her own babies in the future!
On the difference between Carla Reed and Joan Clayton:
“I enjoyed playing a different role. Carla is so different from Joan. And I am at a different point in my life. Joan and Carla are pieces of me. But I am much more than both of them. Joan was a very specific piece of me. She was neurotic, faithless, and afraid, which lends itself to some really good humor. Carla is the evolved version of Joan. She has the love that Joan was looking for, so it creates humor from a different place.”
On taking risks:
“As a younger person, my philosophy was jump off a cliff. I realize now that there are stairs and elevators. I am learning every day to allow the space between where I am and where I want to be to inspire me and not terrify me. I can even ask for help! Not feeling that I have to know everything, and that’s where the growth comes in, in the not knowing.”
On her “lily pad moment”:
“It’s the time when you come above water and you are aware of your surroundings,” she explains. “I was thinking: Oh my! This is my life? How did I get here? And better yet, what am I going to do with it?”
On becoming a mom:
“I got it from my mother. She always wanted children. I feel like she created space on the planet for us before we got here.”
“Oh, God yeah. I want to be a mom. But, obviously, this stuff happens in God’s time and not mine.”
