Queen Latifah Fronts January Issue of Good Housekeeping

queenl4

Queen Latifah is all-smiled on the January 2014 issue of Good Housekeeping magazine.

In this issue, the actress-turned-host reveals that she used alcohol as a coping mechanism. She also opens up about body and  her New Year’s resolution  in this issue of  Good Housekeeping!

On her brother’s motorcycle accident:
“My life was rocked to the core. Riding was one of the things Lance and I did together a lot. I had to get back on. It was like a [healing] potion.”

On her friend’s death:
“Drinking a bunch of alcohol, numbing myself [took the pain away]. Every day I would be faded, like a painting that was not vibrant, whose edges are dull. I wasn’t living my full life.”

On her New Year’s resolution:
“Taking the worry of the world on my shoulders is not right. My New Year’s resolution is to stay humble and be joyous, whether that’s spending time with family, hiking, driving around, listening to music, or playing with my dog. It’s so important to take care of ourselves that way.”

On staying positive:
“Accentuating the positive and eliminating as much negative as possible. I think I got to that place by not being happy with the other side – hating your body and criticizing yourself all the time. When I was around 18, I looked in the mirror and said, ‘You’re either going to love yourself or hate yourself.’ And I decided to love myself. That changed a lot of things.”

On how she views her body:
“For a lot of the things I’ve wanted to do in life, I haven’t looked typical. I was not born a size 2. I’m not skinny, period. I’m not willing to sleep with the director or step on somebody else’s neck to get the job.”
