You probably know Jemima from her role as Jessa in Lena Dunham’s show GIRLS. In this video, Jemima Kirke talks truthfully about her first role, the pressure she feels as an artist, as well as private thoughts. Like how she had the tremendously feeling of being a mother in her twenties, that simply didn’t feel ready.
“The guilt hit me the second like she came out of me – like, I was her mother, you know. Because I realized – it was like – Oh my god, what did I just do? I just released a suffering person.”
This video is just one part of The What’s Underneath project by StyleLikeU, who, after 8 years of interviews, published their second book called True Style is What’s Underneath: The Self-Acceptance Revolution. They aim to uncover authentic style, which comes from underneath, from your spirit.
I believe that their interviews show us something very important in times where social media and perfect staged Instagram feeds put on a fake reality. There really is a Self-Acceptance Revolution that slowly spreads the world from corner to corner.
These interviews show us truth, courage, emotions, yes, they show us real, authentic human beings. I am very thankful for the team of StyleLikeU to share their ideas.
