The 38-year-old actress also explained which artists inspire her, “Oh, gosh, there’s so many. Currently, Chris Stapleton, I’m obsessed with. Sara Bareilles, I love her new album. Bonnie Raitt, classically she’s just ridiculous. But, yeah, it’s so hard because there’s so many amazing artists, it’s hard to pick one.”
