Jenna Ortega, the renowned actress, opens up about her desire to be a role model for young girls, setting the stage for our exploration of her incredible circle of friends. From Emma Myers to Landry Bender, each personality brings a unique perspective to the table. Join us as we uncover the wisdom, routines, and experiences of these incredible individuals who inspire and empower us in their own distinct ways.
Jenna Ortega talked about being an actress and wanting to be a role model for young girls to Harper's Bazaar. "As a kid, I was always being told what I should and shouldn't do — which way I should go, what would be best for me," she said. "I thought, 'I don't want other young girls to look up at the screen and feel like they have to change their appearance to be deemed beautiful or worthy.'"
Emma Myers works with Ortega on Wednesday. She tells ComingSoon.net that she learned soccer for a movie. "I never played, but I did have an interest in it growing up. But after doing a couple practice rounds and trials, I like it a lot, but nobody in my family plays soccer with me, so I ended up just kicking a ball around by myself at the time.
Selena Gomez talked about dealing with her mental health and bad days to Wondermind.com. "Usually, the first 10 minutes of the day I can kind of gauge how my day will go. Sometimes I just must accept it's going to be a bad day and that's OK. We all have bad days."
Aubrey Plaza presented an award with Ortega. She shared her skincare routine with The Cut. "It's pretty simple, especially now that Peet Rivko exists. It's cleanser, moisturizer, oil. Done. If I feel like I'm super hormonal or I'm having breakouts — a lot of times, because I'm an actor, I have so much makeup on my face and people are putting makeup on my face all day, and sometimes it irritates my skin — I'll have to throw in an acne product or something like that to help me out a bit."
Christina Ricci works with Ortega on Wednesday. She shared what she'd tell her younger self with The Zoe Report. "I would go back and tell my younger self to just lean into being unique and individual. When I was younger, that wasn't really that popular. There was a big push for everyone to be relatable and the girl next door. But I think now we know that lots of different kind of girls live next door for sure. So I would just tell myself to hold on and lean into being unique and it'll all work out."
Jordan Fisher is a friend of Ortega's. He talked about revealing his eating disorder to People. "It's been really powerful," he admits. "The amount of people that have reached out just with stories of their own and how you never know what people are going through; I think that that was the thing that really stuck out to people… just a lot of love and respect and kudos in terms of taking care of business and prioritizing my health and mental health."
Joy Sunday is one of Ortega's Wednesday co-stars. She shared her skincare routine to Byrdie. "I use a cleanser from La Roche Posay, lotion from CeraVe, hyaluronic acid from The Ordinary, and BHA from CosRx. Whenever I feel a zit coming on or need to look extra glowy, I use my Foreo UFO mask. For makeup, I need someone to threaten me into knowing how to do makeup. I wish I could beat my face. The only thing I can do is a cat eye."
Gwendoline Christie is another of Ortega's Wednesday co-stars. Her trainer, Dalton Wong, shared her fitness secrets with Harper's Bazaar. "We focused on various types of postural training focusing on hips and bum, core, shoulders and back. We implemented my mini band and glider programme to do daily at home to help improve her hips and core strength."
Naomi J Ogawa
Ortega's Wednesday co-star, Naomi J. Ogawa, shared her skincare routine to Grazia. "I like to keep my beauty routine very simple. When it comes to skincare, I like using a gentle cleanser and if I feel like my skin needs some more TLC, I'll pop on a hydrating face mask. It's so easy to get carried away with using a bunch of different creams and serums but I like to stick to two that work for my skin type. I use the SkinCeuticals redness neutraliser and Drunk Elephant Protini Polypeptide Cream. They're a bit of a splurge but they honestly work wonders for my skin and a small amount of product goes a long way. I'm also obsessed with pimple patches as I have acne prone skin. The minute I see a spot emerging, I pop a sticker on to not even give it a chance of life. If I feel like my face is puffy, I like to Gua Sha my face and give it a little massage to get the circulation going and give myself a little lymphatic drainage. I do love to keep my skin moisturised, so after I take a shower I lotion up my body with e45 cream. I always put my hair up in a bun using my silk hair scrunchies that my friend gifted me (thank you Pria) as I like to keep my hair out of my face when I sleep."
Catherine Zeta Jones
Catherine Zeta-Jones plays Ortega's mom on Wednesday. She talked about her diet to The Wall Street Journal. "I always eat breakfast; I'm not one of those people who can skip it. I have a go-to breakfast that happens every day. Right now, I've just switched. In the winter months, I have porridge with banana, brown sugar and berries. Come daylight savings, when we spring forward, I switch to my nonfat Greek yogurt with my berries and my granola."
Landry Bender is a friend of Ortega's. She protested this summer during the SAG-AFTRA Strike, and shared this post on Instagram from it. Bender captioned the post, "I strike for the 10 year old me that joined the union and the 80 year old me that hopes to still be working. The majority of @sagaftra member's job is simply AUDITIONING for the next job – and the majority of members don't qualify for health insurance. (please consider donating to @sagaftrafound!) We marched this morning for unions in every field – we need fair wages and contracts. My favorite quote today from @msjoelyfisher: 'What you are doing right now is bigger than any role you'll ever play.'"
