Hollywood bombshell Issa Rae is serving up sporty glam in her latest cover spread in Women’s Health. Photographed by Ben Watts, the actress flaunts a glowing beauty beat crafted by Joanna Simkin and a textured high ponytail and flat twists styled by Felicia Leatherwood.
Styled by Jason Rembert, the Insecure boss posed it up in a slew of spring-ready pieces including two-piece sets and bodycon dresses. Inside the glossy, she gets candid about balancing new projects, her exercise regimen, her mental well-being and so much more.
On her exercise regimen:
“I exercise for, like, an hour each day. My neighborhood has a bunch of hills, so it’s walking up hills. Then I alternate between walking and jogging. I hate jogging—you’re going in circles, but I recognize that it helps.”
On balancing new projects:
“Find a good team. Find a good team.” Issa repeats. “It matters
.…It’s enabled me to not lose my mind.”
On her mental well-being:
“You know those earbuds that you put in your ears? I was running, and one fell. It was dark outside and I couldn’t find it. So I was forced to just be alone with my thoughts, and I was like, ‘Oh, I need to do this more often.’ Those moments are the most creative. I think finding those moments while also nurturing your body is important.”
