Your character Brea shows a lot of strength. How do you stay grounded? The most important thing is to find happiness. It’s not about what people think about you or how much money you have. Once you take those things away, there’s real happiness to be found. What makes you happiest these days? For the first time in my life, I’m really happy when I’m not working. Instead of wondering what’s next or what I have to do, there are things to see and people to talk to. That’s a good improvement for me. What’s the perfect day off for you? I love to do yoga, sit in my backyard and hang out with my son [Julian, 8]. A day off is about trying new adventures! Mother’s Day is coming up. Any plans? It’s fun to spend…

truly beautiful

EVER SINCE 1990—WHEN MICHELLE PFEIFFER GRACED the cover—People has been putting out our annual list of the world’s most beautiful people. And choosing the cover subject has always been one of the best parts of my job. In my first year as editor of People, in 2014, we were lucky enough to have Lupita Nyong’o on the cover. Last year it was a thrill to call Julia Roberts and offer it to her (she said yes!). The issue is always a hit with audiences, advertisers and Hollywood because it celebrates all kinds of beauty, of course—beautiful souls as well as beautiful skin. Over the years the name of the issue has evolved: 50 Most Beautiful People, 100 Most Beautiful People, the World’s Most Beautiful Women, etc. The words “most beautiful” have…

split 3 weeks before wedding!

LESS THAN A MONTH before their planned May 5 wedding in Mexico, WWE superstar couple John Cena and Nikki Bella shocked fans by announcing they were calling it off—and ending their six-year relationship. “While this decision was a difficult one, we continue to have a great deal of love and respect for one another,” the couple said in a statement, tweeted out by the Total Bellas star on April 15. So what went wrong? In early April Cena, 41, told People that he was “excited” to be married and call Bella, 34, his wife. But a source close to Bella claims that Cena’s excitement was all for show and that behind closed doors the Blockers actor was dragging his feet so much that Bella broke up with him. “He was…

casting controversy

More than two decades after being banned by the U.S. Figure Skating Association, Tonya Harding, 47, is trading in skates for dancing shoes on the athletes’ edition of Dancing with the Stars (premiering April 30 at 8 p.m. on ABC). The controversial former Olympian—who continues to deny being involved in the infamous 1994 attack on rival Nancy Kerrigan—is brushing off backlash from fans.
