I want to be the best version of myself – intellectually, emotionally, and physically. So I like to wear clothes that I feel comfortable in, that reflect that.
I am Gabrielle Anwar: mother, lover, daughter, sister, friend, and creator in the pursuit of happiness.
I like the stability, the continuity of having a lifestyle where I know I can pay my rent at the end of each month. And also I have these children that I am raising and it’s nice for all of us to sort of know that we’re going to be in a specific place for a certain amount of time. I’ve never known that in my career. So I’m really quite grateful at this point that I get to have the sort of double existence and I can rely on both.
I think that loyalty surpasses the peril that we’re all in.
I’ve been hounded by a reputation of being difficult when really what I’m being is truthful and honest. And I think that’s been a thorn in my side.
I’m not even sure I have a style! All I know for sure is I don’t want to look like everyone else.
I have this threadbare caftan from the ’60s that I got at a vintage store years ago – it’s basically a muumuu. My friends are astonished that I wear it, but I love it. It’s this light fabric that just moves with me.
When you sign up for a TV show, you don’t know if it’s going to be for a pilot or for the rest of your life, so I wanted to play a character that I enjoyed thoroughly, and there weren’t that many of them out there.
I always get a little anxious like the first day of school when we’ve had our hiatus and we’re coming back, because I think I’m not as insane as I was when we started shooting. I have that anxiety before we start shooting.
I shop at a lot of vintage stores because the prices are amazing, and I love the idea that there’s a history behind the piece I’m wearing.
