On realizing her charm:

I think I started to explore the idea of charm when I was 16 or 17. That was when I realized I could get away with some things. Not with my parents, because they saw through me, but with other people. When I was younger, though, I didn’t know how to turn it on for the camera, only in person. That was my problem.

On where her parents are from:
They are American, but my mom’s side is Danish and French, and my dad is Mexican. When I started, I was labeled 'exotic.' That was it. It was like you had to be mysterious and sexual. Back in the day, if you were Latina, it was always a stereotype. They couldn’t write you as a normal person in the world. [Director] Robert Rodriguez was kinda the first person who made Latinos commercial in his movies, like in the Spy Kids franchise. And then Jennifer Lopez and Salma Hayek [helped pave the way]. It was tough in the beginning.

On her company 'Honest':
 It’s my baby! I’m so proud of it, and I want it to be successful. I believe we’re changing the conversation. You never really heard about toxic chemicals in products before. It wasn’t that commercial when we launched six years ago. People weren’t questioning ingredients or whether there was a safe alternative. Some people were, but they were sort of looked at as like, 'Oh, you’re a hippie.' But now it’s mainstream, and that’s cool. So we were pioneers. Hopefully, it will allow people to live better and healthier lives because they’ll at least know what to avoid.

On getting back into shape after having her son:
[Laughs] That shit is hard. For me, it’s more about posting what I’m really going through. Working out is not easy, but I’m doing it. I’m dropping a name here, but I was with Kate Hudson, and she’s so fit! And I was like, 'You work out every day?' And she said, “Of course I do.' I was just like, 'Fuck, man, she doesn’t even question it, so I shouldn’t question it either.'

On having success & still hustling:
I definitely still have the hustle. I always feel like I’m an anomaly in a weird way. I didn’t go to college and get a degree and go into the workplace. I’ve had a pretty unconventional path to get where I am, but there are hustlers in every field. You can find them. They are lawyers, doctors, people in government. When you find people who are like-minded, you gravitate toward them.
