Why wouldn’t she be? It’s perfect!

19. She’s a fantastic role model.


“Women are reminded of their age all the time and it’s usually by a fricking fat, big-bellied old man with a comb-over and you look at him and you’re like, “Really? Give me a break. You just have more money and more power in this situation than I do, but not in my life.” - ZS

20. She supports great causes.

21. She looks amazing from any angle.

22. She even makes stretching look adorable.

23. She’s, maybe, the only person that can rock a duck face.

24. She’s just a normal person, like you and me, and gets tired after a long day.

25. She’s a nerd.

In the best possible way.

“I’m a massive sci-fi fan. When they were prepping me to go on the Star Trek tour, some of the marketing people asked me to say that Star Trek was a great film for women to see. And I said, ‘Why would I do that? Aren’t they coming anyway?’ I honestly thought every girl loved sci-fi. I was raised in a home where we watched 2001, Blade Runner, ET, and my heroes were Ripley and Sarah Connor (from the Alien and Terminator films), and I thought all girls were like that. I mean, are we only meant to read Jane Austen?” - ZS

26. But she could definitely kick anyone’s butt.

27. She shares great advice.

"Nothing is worth more than laughter. It is strength to laugh and to abandon oneself, to be light." -Frida Kahlo
