Here’s what the 28-year-old actress had to share with the mag…
On the importance of self-care: “Sometimes I find that the best thing for my body is to just take that extra hour of sleep and not work out. I’m good at making time for self-care when I get overwhelmed. I read a book or take a bath or snuggle with my doggies and watch Survivor. Or I have coffee with friends.”
On her secret weapon to staying healthy: “My stay-healthy secret when I’m working 14- or 15-hour days on Mrs. Maisel is bone broth. For the first season of the show, I was feeling very tired. And because I have a fast metabolism, I felt like I was dropping weight in an unhealthy way. Bone broth has collagen and fat in it, along with all kinds of vitamins and minerals, and I really think it helped me. I was the only person on our set who didn’t get sick that season.”
On the true meaning of family: “When you lose someone you love [Kate Spade, Rachel’s aunt, died last June], you search for ways to commemorate and honor them and keep their memory alive. This past year has obviously been very challenging for my family. Katie inspired me greatly as an artist and a human being, which is why I have partnered with Frances Valentine – the fashion brand she created, to celebrate her life and legacy and the impact that she and her work had on so many people.”
