SHOW TRANSCRIPT

[MUSIC] It seems that In Style, every time I've shot, it's always been seminal moments in my life. For instance. When I was 16, I came home from school, there was just all these people in the house and I walked in and my mom just goes, honey let's get a picture together. Let's just take a picture. And then we took a picture with our dog, with Judge our Lab at the time, and then my mom told me later that InStyle wanted to put it on the cover, I was. I was actually kind of shocked, cuz I wasn't really acting at the time. It's something we still have in our house, and every time was pass it we remember at that moment. And also our dog, Judge, that we love so much who's now passed. It was just sort of a special moment for mom and I. I realize one of the things I really like about working with InStyle is that it always seems to capture my personality more than any, anything else and, and now as I look back at the shoot, I realize [LAUGH] I must have a really crazy [LAUGH] personality. Happy 20th anniversary InStyle. I have to say you've made such a mark that I'm surprised it's only your 20th. I've been very honored to have been a part of your family at various times throughout the years. Thank you.
