Stop listening to the inner voice when it says you’re not good enough. Stop comparing yourself to other people to minimize your own greatness and success because at the end of the day, there are people out there comparing themselves to you and your achievements. Stop second guessing your abilities and how far you have come. Stop criticizing yourself for not being better or having more or doing more. Stop with the fraud complex that we all feel when things are going so well that we think it’s just luck while we ignore the years of work we have done to get there. What if... WHAT IF... YOU’RE ACTUALLY PROBABLY DOING F*CKING great. That’s awesome. Congratulations to everyone out there who needs to hear this. Keep shining. We are all rooting for you.
They really should make a film about Grant Achatz the Chef behind Alinea.. 3 Michelin stars.. despite having temporarily lost his sense of taste during a diagnosis of Squamous cell carcinoma of the mouth. This was one of my favorite dining experiences I’ve had in a hot minute. Also I had to roll myself home.
If you’re not doing dessert like this are you even doing dessert.. Wow When in Chicago you must visit Alinea.

"I grew up as a young man in a small village, which wasn’t always easy. As far as style and sneakers are concerned, they were a foreign body. Through my many journeys and my move to the big city, I have developed my style, but at the same time I have not forgotten where I come from. For me, the Nike Air Max Plus also represents this symbiosis. Although it is a classic sports shoe, it can clearly be cross-referenced to street style and hip hop. Just like this shoe, I live in both worlds." @dieser_rami / Cologne, Germany #MySneakerStories @footlockereu @footlocker_au @footlocker_nz @footlockercanada

“The first time I saw this pair was on a VHS copy of "Come Fly With Me" and I instantly fell in love. When I was in high school I drew them. The Jumpman on the tongue, the Elephant print and that air bubble had me from the start. For financial reasons I only started collecting in 2012, so I missed out on the 2011 release. When the Retro 88s dropped in 2013 with the NA on the heel, I HAD TO HAVE THEM!!! But, Australia did not get any allocation. As I noticed the resell price rise and rise, I felt my chances of owning a pair slip away further and further, only to admire on the feet of others. Last year an opportunity arose to purchase these at a crazy price, I had to jump on it. One grail ticked off the list via an online community, that is about getting kicks on people's feet who share the same love for sneakers as I do and are not just out for a profit.” We all have a sneaker story this is just one of mine.” - @b3nni801 | Sydney, AUS #MySneakerStories @footlocker_au @footlocker_nz @footlockercanada @footlockereu

Not long ago I packed my bags and left everything I knew behind, for a dream. I left my friends, family, career and comfort zone to attempt to break Hollywood. After two years of trying to get a manager or an agent I had spent every last cent I’d made in over decade of “showbiz”.. I was living on a blow up mattress from Target and I had only 6 months left on my Visa to prove I could contribute to the industry abroad. In a moment close to giving up I poured what I had into a short film called break free.. A short film I’d put off making for years because I was so fearful, fearful of how people would react, if I would lose my job or if brands would pull advertising from my shows. If brands I was the face of and spokesperson for would not want to be associated with me anymore and of course the fear of being so honest and raw in a video on platforms I had no control over. When I was stripped of those things, I had nothing to lose and no one to answer to and I realized I was getting depressed over rejection from others when I should have been focused on if I believed in me and if i did, what did I stand for and what really mattered to me. Breakfree changed my life in so many ways, and so did the struggle of those years. It will forever be the time I’m most proud of. I didn’t however know, it would change my entire life. The film ended up circulating around the world, it made an impact bigger than myself it started a bigger conversation.. it also found its way to the creators of OITNB... I am so sad I missed the premiere and last hurrah the other night, but I’m here in Vancouver shooting a show I probably wouldn’t even be shooting if it wasn’t for the belief and risk taken by @ijnej @jen_euston and the show. It opened up a door for me that I could have never imagined and I will forever be in gratitude to those who took a chance on me. Forever grateful to the cast who became my friends and biggest supporters, the show and the fans who embraced me. Thank you for everything. Sad to see it come to an end but the way it changed the game, the way it impacted the world and audiences.. and the way it impacted everyone on the show is unparalleled. X
It’s not for a movie... #2 All kidding aside, for everyone going through infertility and conception hell, please know it was not a straight line to either of my pregnancies. Sending you extra love 💕
Happy birthday to one of the sweetest, most talented, funny and kind people I know. You make me laugh more than anyone else and you inspire me beyond. Everyone who is friends with you, knows how special you truly are. I hope you have the best day ever @kathryngallagher ❤️🎇🌠
Found some cute groups shots where we all look normal especially me I look very casual.
Took the cast out yesterday to take in some views and rays and have a moment to break and recharge. Couldn’t find a group photo where we all look normal. So I’m posting this instead.
I just had to stop what I’m doing before I lose another day without wishing my favorite Man in the whole world a HAPPY BIRTHDAY. @vindiesel We have spent many birthdays, Easters, holiday, family events and even had the pleasure of “working” together in film and music. You are my brother, my family and my happy place. Without you in my life, I would be missing out on one of my most beautiful soul connections I’ve ever had. I love you with my whole heart and I wish I could have been there to share another special day with you. Xx

Yes the anti-abortion movement is primarily about controlling women’s bodies under the premise (for many, sincere) of saving lives, and yes this law is primarily the work of white men HOWEVER a white woman sponsored the bill and a white woman signed it into law. As we’re resisting, let us also call out the complicity of the white women who made this awful moment possible, and which–make no mistake–WILL lead to the unnecessary and avoidable deaths of women, a disproportionate number of whom will be poor and/or black. Speak up. Show up. Don’t give up.

I just took some time off from Instagram but when I would check in, I found myself repeatedly moved by @gretathunberg and the work she is doing for Mother Earth. I hope you check out what she is about (link in my bio). To the students who have taken up Greta’s call to strike, please know you inspire me, and that I am proud of you for claiming your place in this world. I am curious: what do you think us older generations could be doing right now for the climate that we are not? What kind of support do you want? Greta- thank you for everything you are doing and, for what it’s worth, for lifting up my heart and giving me hope. #fridaysforfuture #schoolstrike4climate #climatestrike
I know this is an inspired representation of an even greater divinity. I know this blessed place is a human-made interpretation of what is mysterious, unknowable, and undefinable and while seeing her burn brings tears to my eyes, I know even flames cannot diminish her sacredness. Still, not her. Please. Not her. #notredame #ourlady

This #IWD2019 I want to highlight the brilliance of @laylafsaad. She is no-joke changing the world and, for what it’s worth, the way I live my life. Layla, I hope to meet you someday and thank you in person. Until then, please know my respect and appreciation know no bounds.

This post resonated with me- way to go @zerowastehome- and I wanted to share it with you. It also brought up something for me: I am conflicted about blithely touting a zero waste lifestyle here because I know so much of my ability to even attempt it rests on my privilege. I feel it’s borderline obnoxious for me to promote this lifestyle like everyone has the same access to it that I have- I mean, reusable water bottles are great but not when you live in a community with unsafe drinking water. Buying bulk is not an option when you live in a food desert and have no time. Access is not the same for everyone, and yet I can’t deny that committing to living this way is one of the best decisions I have ever made. I have never had a perfect zero waste day. I will never fit five years of trash in a mason jar, but I am not mindlessly filling up landfills at the rate I was either. Just offering my best gives me something to feel good about and, over time, my best has gotten better. No one can do everything but almost everyone can do something. Have you tried adopting any zero waste habits? What’s working for you?
Packing agggaaainnnnnn 🤦🏻♂️

Please join me in holding @JussieSmollett and his beautiful family in power and healing. Jussie, I am so sorry this happened. I am so sorry and I stand with you. Love is love, we are all equal, and this is a bitterly sad day. There have been too many bitterly sad days.
We keep it real around here: some critics get @serenityfilm and, like me, find it interesting, moving, ambitious and different, and for some it just doesn’t work. That’s cool- there is no failure, only learned events, not everyone has to like everything, and the critical response doesn’t change my feelings about the movie. However, other people’s time and money are not to be taken for granted, so I just want to be clear: I endorse the movie, many critics don’t 😉 Anyway, wasn’t my @givenchyofficial skirt for the premiere rad? 💙
We strutted, I was @thefredsavage‘s Head’s Up partner, and we got weird with clementines (What? Just watch 😉) Love and thanks to @theellenshow for always being the best x
“Let no man pull you so low as to hate him.”- MLK Thank you Dr. King for sharing your tremendous light. It’s an honor to live in a world which bears your footprint, in which your words echo and transform hearts, my own included.

Major mood as I say goodbye for another year to all my friends and family back home. Time to gear up for 2019 now. I’m so ready.
My beautiful... ridiculously handsome and charming baby brother is turning 21 and I’m so proud of the man he’s become, so lucky to have him and so mad he’s taller than me already. 😂 love you!
I adore you @natalie_imbruglia I was excited to get home and back to work... but now nothing’s right and I’m torn! 😂😂😂
We laughed, I made crazy eyes at the audience, and I served my best McConaughey (#sorrynotsorry Matthew, it’s the price of being an iconoclast.). @jimmykimmel is a treat and it was my absolutely pleasure to stop by (#sorryactuallysorry I didn’t get this post up last night!) @serenityfilm #SecretsWillSurface
Wow. Check out 2009 me trying so hard not to do anything wrong. Check out 2019 me doing what feels right. Wicked sweet 🙂 #10YearChallenge
Thank you so much @crownresorts for the best few days celebrating food, tennis and friendship ❤️❤️❤️
Matthew and I are learning our film Serenity isn’t easily broken down into sound bites. I really like movies like that, but just in case I am in the minority, here are some reasons why I think you should see it: I find Serenity to be a thrilling, ambitious, violent, spiritual, erotic, charged, dark, damning, contradictory, maddening, lushly intelligent film from the brilliant mind of Steven Knight. It asks a lot of the audience. It exists outside cut-and-dry, black-and-white moralizing, beyond the realm of “thumbs up” and “thumbs down,” “it sucked,” “it was bad-ass,” etc. It will need some analysis and conversation after. Good. Serenity is a sexy, surreal, modern noir for grown ups who are into things that don’t come standard. If that sounds like you, I hope you’ll consider giving us your time and attention. Thanks for listening xx #SecretsWillSurface @serenityfilm
2009 - 2019 I lost the shoulder pads, discovered hair gel and started squinting.. sounds about right. #10yearchallenge
I have been road tripping around aus since I arrived.. and it was amazing. Peep my stories for some of the adventures.
Best start to my Sydney trip. I made a NY plan to see as much of Australia and as many of my friends as possible because I just don’t get back here enough. So far it’s taken me to the most beautiful places with the most beautiful people. I love this year already. @catmcneil @jazdaly @georgieclaire_

RIP Penny Marshall. I’ll miss your voice (literally and cinematically). Give Garry a hug for me xx
My country gassed children. There are no words for my horror. To those who will immediately speak of “doing it the right way”, who will “blame the parents for putting the children in this position”, or say “they were storming the wall”, and “they were throwing rocks”: the only human response to this monstrous use of force against LEGAL asylum seekers- against children- is condemnation, shame, and rage. For those that still believe in voting for the man who recommended using lethal force on families fleeing violence and persecution: this is the policy you like? @nytimes

Adam and I join in the worldwide mourning of 11 innocent lives lost in Pittsburgh this weekend. We join in the forceful, worldwide, ongoing condemnation of White Nationalism, Anti-Semitism, and all forms of hate. We reject communities that are formed around the hatred, marginalization, and oppression of any group or religion under the flimsy cover of "free speech". We are full of sorrow, and we remain unbowed. Our hearts are broken, and we do not despair. We are full of love in the face of hate, as has been asked of us, always. We close our eyes and remember that the message of every great martyr and spiritual teacher has reflected the same truth: the path is clear, long, difficult, and worth it. We open our eyes and see that path which is made of, and has always led to, love. The glory of the soul is our true inheritance. We take the next step together.
Silence is not an option when the stakes are this high, and while the release that comes with posting righteous anger and outrage feels potent, I worry it is proving ineffective at actually reaching those who need to hear the message most. This leaves me no option but to let my anger take a back seat and offer this moment to love. To my trans siblings*: you have given us so much light to guide on the path of love- thank you, from the bottom of my heart. To all the trans children out there: I love you. You matter so much. I can’t wait until you grow up and teach us what comes next. Yes, I speak love here, but make no mistake: all the love and light in the world is nothing without action and justice, and so I will also get out and #VOTE for the rights of Trans Americans, and I will #VOTE against anyone threatening to dim the brightness of our shared future. To anyone rolling your eyes at this issue, or who thinks this doesn’t affect them: wise up, friend. We’re all in this together and the lives of our fellow Americans are under attack from the very top. I know this issue may feel challenging to some of you, but your feelings are not more important than another human’s intrinsic right to freedom and existence. #TRANSRIGHTSAREHUMANRIGHTS #wewillnotbeerased *thank you to those who took the time to clue me into the more appropriate non-binary language. Heard.
I keep thinking how we move through things so quickly these days (how could we not?); I know my personal capacity to absorb something new is often maxed out. For example, a movie opens, we are “obsessed” for a weekend, we move on. I do this too: even when I really love something, I get distracted by the next thing, don’t fully digest the experience and I quickly move on, like the world exists only to entertain me, like great art is unlimited, that my consumption of it as an everyday all-you-can eat buffet is acceptable. We are so fortunate- a ton of worthy, excellent movies are going to come out between now and the end of the year, and our plates are going to become increasingly full. That said, I think A Star is Born is so special, so ambitious, so audacious and so brilliantly human that it shouldn’t just be a news story for one weekend. Even being so excited about what’s coming out, I want to really luxuriate in appreciation for A Star is Born. I saw this film back in August at the Venice Film Festival and I still walk around feeling lucky I was in that audience. This film surprised me in the best possible way; it even killed some cynicism that I didn’t know had snuck into my heart. I loved it. I hope you see it. Bravo @ladygaga. Bravo #bradleycooper. Thank you. Encore 🌹
Update: To all the men and women who are asking “what about boys”? There is a historic, seismic imbalance between the investment in girls and boys worldwide, especially when it comes to education, with boys overwhelmingly reaping the lion’s share of the reward. In a great deal of the world, educating girls is wrongfully seen as a waste of resources. Programs like this are aiming to level the playing field and evolve the outdated, all-too-common view that boys are more valuable than girls into one of inclusion and equality. I am proud to support any program or way of thinking that seeks to provide this kind of inclusivity and balance. The current reality is that girls need our help because of this generations-old imbalance, and this push towards equality is being done without excluding boys. I appreciate your intent, but this type of “whatabout-ism” is upholding an incredibly harmful and unfair status quo (which I can only hope is the opposite of what you want.) All the best, Annie — Love and support everything about this. When girls receive an education, amazing things start to happen: poverty goes down. Economies grow. Families get stronger. Babies are born healthier. And the world, by all accounts, gets better. That’s why on the International #DayoftheGirl, I’m proud to join @MichelleObama and the @globalgirlsalliance to stand up for adolescent girls’ education—because the future of our world is only as bright as our girls.
#FBF to last week when I had the honor of speaking with Prime Minister @JacindaArdern of New Zealand with my incredible @UNWomen bosses #PhumzileMlamboNgcuka and @enyamayaro about the exciting and necessary work the PM is doing to increase #PPL in NZ (I also got to meet her daughter Neve!). I ALSO got to moderate two panels at the @UNWomen global summit with some of our brilliant #heforshe #impactchampions- these are the men who are helping break through the glass ceiling, top down (thanks guys! ‘Bout time! 😉). So grateful and proud to be a part of this! Check out their concrete commitments to #genderequality at the link in my bio x
The importance of grace; The knowledge that power is nothing without respect; Why one must have patience, positivity, perspective, manners, kindness, and humility Always, To everyone, (No exceptions); The joy in treating people as a gift rather than a burden; How far choosing gratitude can get you... If I know anything about any of this, It’s because I was lucky enough to have learned from the very best at the very beginning. Happy Birthday Julie, Queen Eternal. All my love, Annie
