  • Sometimes in life, if you are lucky, you meet someone who takes you under their wing and cares for you like a daughter. Nanci Ryder was that other mother to me. I met her when I was 19, and we traveled the world together promoting movies...France, Germany, UK, Australia, Brazil, Russia...so many amazing places!
    But I loved our talks the most. Everyday after my kids went to school, she would call me to chat about shopping, purses, vintage jewelry, and about the Bachelor.🤣One day, Nanci called and told me she was having trouble talking...it was ALS. Nanci lived with and fought ALS for 6 years. (My heart goes to everyone out there dealing with this devastating disease🙏🏻) Yesterday, my Nanci left this world. I’m so sad because I miss her so much, but now I know she is Heaven chatting with all her friends about purses, jewelry and she is looking down on me... smiling. ALWAYS. I LOVE YOU, Nanci. ❤️💫🙏🏻

  • When I was 19-years-old, I read The Measure of Our Success by Marian Wright Edelman on my cross-country drive to start my freshman year of college. It was required reading for my dorm. Mrs. Edelman‘s words took me to new places of understanding and heart opening. It is a fantastic letter to her sons on their 18th birthday about how to be thoughtful, kind, respectable humans and American citizens. I read it again this week and even though it was written in 1992, I was so moved by its immediacy and how many of those principles in that book guided my way through early adulthood. It’s a wonderful gift for a graduate....a guide about what to value in this world and how to be a “lantern”. Check it out and read more of her work in my Stories! #MarianWrightEdelman

  • Elevating women’s stories is at the core of @ReesesBookClub. I love how this community champions the narrative for women and we are just getting started. Unity and understanding through the lens of storytelling is how we will continue these meaningful conversations. So, for the first time, I’ve selected two books for us to read this month: Austin Channing Brown’s “I’m Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness” and Lucy Foley’s “The Guest List.” We will read these two books simultaneously over the course of June and July. I look forward to reading, listening and learning with you all. ⠀

    The memoir #ImStillHere by @austinchanning is a personal narrative from a Black, Christian woman who takes us through what she experiences every day as a Black person in America. This June pick is teaching me so much about how we perpetuate racism in our society. I still have so much to learn and I want you to join me in having meaningful conversations, no matter how uncomfortable they may feel—it’s part of it.⠀

    A very stormy seaside destination wedding is the back drop for this thrilling June book pick: #TheGuestList by @lucyfoleyauthor. Get ready for so many twists and turns as you try to figure out the who, what and when of this mystery. It reminds me of some of my favorite mysteries from Agatha Christie. You’ll be guessing all the way ‘til the end…and you’re in for a shocker!

  • In 2019, I had the good fortune of going to a conference with #TitusKaphar and hearing him discuss his artwork. I was blown away by his beautiful art but even more so by his powerful words. His work deconstructs the falsehoods so many of us were taught in American History classes, and exposes the truth of brutality and violence perpetrated against Black bodies since this country began. Here, he has created another unforgettable piece for @time. I’ve shared his incredible TED talk and more of his work in my Stories.

  • Last night at dinner, my 7-year-old asked why all the grown ups were so upset. We spoke to him about what happened to George Floyd. Being a white mother trying to explain racism and bigotry to her white son, who did not understand why anyone would treat another human being that way, was heartbreaking. But not nearly as heartbreaking as being a victim of one of these senseless, violent, unconscionable crimes. Not nearly as heartbreaking as being one of the families who have experienced loss and harassment and discrimination daily. Not nearly as heartbreaking as being a mother who lives in fear of what will happen to her children in this world.
    I grew up going to church. We were taught that we were all the same in the eyes of God. We all breathe the same air. We all bleed the same blood. But that is not what I grew up seeing. It was as hard for me to reconcile the difference between what I was taught in church and what I see in the world. I don’t want that for my kids. Or for yours.
    We have to be held accountable for what is happening in this country. What happened to George Floyd and Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery - and countless others - can not go without justice. Please talk to your children about racism, privilege, bigotry and hate. If you aren’t talking to them, someone else is.
    Regarding comments: I urge you to share this space for meaningful discussion, not hate. There is enough hate in the world. I hope this can be a space for discussion, understanding, growth and LOVE. We all need more of that.

  • Thank you, @GlennonDoyle, for reminding me that being a human is hard. There’s so much uncertainty right now. One thing that is so difficult for me is not knowing what happens in the future. I’m a planner and a goal setter. But, the other thing I am is a believer. I believe that people are good. I believe there is a higher purpose (even if I don’t always know what it is). I believe the human spirit is truly remarkable. I believe we will get through this, because of my mother and my grandmother and all the other women that came before me that overcame so much for me to be here. If they got through all of the challenges they faced, so can I. I know this is true. 💛

  • I’m so devastated to hear about Lynn Shelton’s passing yesterday. I’m in complete shock that this vibrant, talented, and soulful filmmaker is no longer with us. Lynn was so passionate about our show, Little Fires Everywhere. She said the book truly spoke to her, and that she longed to direct a show that spoke meaningfully about motherhood, sexuality, race, and class in America. And she did. She cared deeply about the WHOLE cast and crew, making sure we all felt heard, seen and appreciated. Lynn also shared so much of her life with us. Her love of her son, how motherhood changed her life, her life changing decisions that made her the woman she was. I feel so fortunate that I got to collaborate with Lynn on both The Morning Show and Little Fires Everywhere. Her spirit touched so many people in the filmmaking world. Her memory lives on in our vivid days together on set and in her wonderful films. Please watch her work and see her talent for yourself. #RestInPeaceLynn 🙏🏻💫💜

  • What a memory! Preparing to play June Carter was six months of singing lessons and autoharp training. Joaquin and the guys in the band practiced everyday and every night. Despite all the practice, I was so nervous to sing in front of those huge crowds, but once we got started it was such a thrill. Truly an unforgettable experience I will always cherish. ❤️🎬: @20thcenturystudios #tbt

  • Such a powerful quote from @pronounced_ing’s book. Thinking a lot about what comes next. What happens after great change? Will there be a higher awareness of our environment? Will we teach in a different way? Will our work look different? It will be fascinating to see how we come together again in new ways. What has become very clear to me is the importance strong family ties and friendships. Those people who understand you, love you and listen to you...even if you tell the same story over and over!🙋🏼‍♀️I have never leaned on my close friends more than now.❤️How do you feel about change?
