Tracee Ellis Ross feels insecure about her looks and "unsafe" when she's using social media.
In a wide-ranging interview with Tyler, the Creator for Interview magazine, the actress discussed self-confidence and how she always strives to be herself.
Tracee also touched upon the use of filtered and edited pictures on Instagram, and admitted that it not only began to affect her creativity, but also had an impact on how she feels about herself offline.
"We’re all so busy trying to make ourselves look like everybody else and talk like everybody else. You’re like, 'Are there robots around me? What’s happening?'" she shared. "I don’t like it. It makes me feel unsafe, because what it starts to do is make me feel like who I am is wrong.
"I don’t want to look in the mirror and think, 'I need to change that, make it look more like a filter.' You spend so much time worrying about those kinds of things that you can’t get lost in your imagination," she explained.
Elsewhere in the chat, the Black-ish star also said she's been taking the time to dress up while at home during the Covid-19 pandemic because it makes her "heart sing".
"People are like, 'Are you still dressing up in the pandemic?' I was like, 'Well, I have a different version of it.' I haven’t worn pants with zippers or a thing that I have to send to the dry cleaners, but, yeah, I still put on a lip,” the 47-year-old added.
