Thank you so much to everyone who came out to support @abortionfunds at our sold out second annual comedy show!! We had some incredible *surprise guests* and raised $25k to help women all across the country get access to the medical care they need. Continue the fight by donating at the link in my bio 💪🏾 📷: @withreservation #prochoice #abortionfunds #reproductivejustice #womenshealth

I had the privilege of getting to know Toni over the years during events. She was always so warm, and yet so regal- the very definition of literary royalty. The last time was coincidentally at lunch with the great Nora Ephron. A very tall tree has fallen in our forest today. #tonimorrison #beloved

But he would then try to leverage the #HR8 gun background checks bill with an immigration bill (as if immigrants were ever the problem) when we all know the crisis is radicalized young white men's unchecked access to weapons that shoot 400 rounds per minute.⁣ ⁣ This is the REAL national emergency. We must demand Congress come back from their recess and pass the gun background check #HR8 bill already passed by the House.

This #tbt is from the film, Sharpe's Challenge where I played a character that according to the British script (Bernard Cornwell) is an evil, conniving concubine that becomes queen. 👑My side of the story is I'm using everything in my power to save my country from the *actual* evil of colonization. And yes, I am feelin’ myself 💁🏽‍♀️

Another Unfortunate Bangs Situation™️ In my defense I was filming the 10 Commandments in Morocco and had a Princess Bithia haircut but in my off hours I absolutely loved trolling the spice shops in the Marrakesh Souk. ⁣ ⁣ Spices are what give a dish its character and point of view. Chicken and tomatoes can be made in fifteen different ways just by changing the spices. Understanding spices is the first key to being a good cook and learning the world’s flavors.⁣ ⁣ My friend, the beautiful Italian photographer @priscillabenedetti took this picture. Priscilla, I know you've got dozen of other compromising photos of me. Cough 'em up please? I could really use them for the gram. 😂 #throwback #morocco #bangs #spicy #spiceupyourlife

@rrael & @vasfsf designed this “Teeter-Totter Wall” for the book "Borderwall as Architecture," which uses "humor and inventiveness to address the futility of building barriers.⁣” ⁣ This week the wall “became a literal fulcrum for U.S -Mexico relations and children and adults were connected in meaningful ways on both sides with the recognition that the actions that take place on one side have a direct consequence on the other side.”⁣⁣ ⁣ (via @cnn) #noborders #nowalls #weareallimmigrants

Creating this show with @hulu is my dream come true. I get to meet so many inspiring immigrants from around the country and explore their cultural/personal narratives through their food. 💪🏿💪🏾💪🏽💪🏼💪🏻⁣ ⁣ “It’s the first solo food vehicle for Lakshmi... Each episode starts with a single dish that represents and connects to a community’s history and traditions, and explores the evolution of that immigrant community through that cuisine. From family recipes and street food to high-end restaurants, each dish explored is a symbol of a unique journey and story that provides viewers a window into where communities came from and the tale of how they set roots in America.” - @hollywoodreporter #immigrantsmakeamericagreat #weareallimmigrants

I’m doing another comedy show⚡️: this time its personal. Come to Brooklyn on Thurs, August 15th for an evening to benefit @abortionfunds 💜 an organization that helps women & their families all across the country with reproductive healthcare including: the cost of procedures, travel & lodging.⁣ ⁣⁣ Last year you all raised nearly 20k for @movementvote for the primaries. Let’s do it again! Link in bio for tix. ⁣ ⁣ 🎨: @pattymcavoydesigns #reproductiverights #roevwade #abortionrights #prochoice

This is how I first got my SAG card by playing a glorified extra on the film “Jungle 2 Jungle.” I was credited as “The Snake Lady" because of a snakeskin coat they made me wear 🐍 Also, who says I don’t like Republicans? 😂 #tbt #threeamigos #jungle2jungle #astarisborn #the90s #canon

There are meals in your life you will never forget. Meals you will tell your grandkids about. Last night was one of them. I had dinner with someone I’ve admired for a long long time. And she did not disappoint. Witty and whip smart, she had a twinkle in her eye the whole night. We sipped champagne, savored our gazpacho and crab and talked of India in the 80’s and so much more. A special thank you to the gracious and funny David Hagedorn and his husband Michael Widomski for an evening filled with love and laughter. #dinnerwithRBG #RBG

“In truth, Trump supporters are a minority. He has an approval rating of about 40 percent, and his main strategy is to latch on to white peoples' fear of irrelevance, their perceived loss of social capital and political power — the age-old fear of the "Other." He took disenfranchised citizens' ire meant for bankers and Wall Street's dubious loans and aimed it squarely at young Guatemalan families crossing the border with bare feet to seek asylum.” Link in bio for the full @washingtonpost article. #IStandWithIlhan #weareallimmigrants

Telling American-born Congresswomen to “go back to their country” because they object to the racism and ineptitude of this administration is ignorant and weak. ⁣ ⁣ It’s no longer a dog-whistle coming from the White House, it’s the desperate gurgle of a small-minded 73 year-old with his back against the wall. #closethecamps #ITMFA #weareallimmigrants

While we celebrate the Fourth, there are refugee families legally seeking asylum in this country being detained and forced to sleep on concrete floors with aluminum blankets and no medical care. This is a stain on our nation and we need to do something now. Contact your representatives tomorrow to demand they #CloseTheCamps.

Everybody got their supplies for tomorrow? 🌽🍗🍑#greenmarket #summervibes (normally I bring a big reusable cloth bag, used these to line my trash cans after)

This is a humanitarian crisis on our soil. These asylum-seeking families are being held captive without access to a bed, a shower, toothbrush, for WEEKS. This is insane. Contact your representatives and tell them this is UNACCEPTABLE. Link in bio #closethecamps #weareallimmigrants #abolishice

Endometriosis (en-doe-me-tree-O-sis) is a chronic illness in which tissue that normally lines the inside of your uterus, grows outside of it, strangling your internal organs.⁣ 1 in 10 women in the US have this disorder which can decrease fertility and even make getting out of bed incredibly difficult.⁣ ⁣ What‘s some of the best (or worst) advice you’ve gotten for dealing with endometriosis? If you think you might have it visit @endofound for help! (link in bio) #endo #endometriosis #endowarrior #endosister

There‘s been an image circulating this week of the drowned bodies of Óscar Alberto Martínez Ramírez and his 23 month-old daughter Valeria. Instead, I ask you to look at this: the same happy family celebrating their daughter’s first birthday with Minnie Mouse decorations. This could be any one of our families. These are the types of people we’re detaining at the border. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Óscar and his daughter were trying to escape violence in El Salvador to achieve the American dream. We have to ask ourselves if our country is worthy of those who want to pursue it. The way we are treating asylum seeking children and families is not only un-American and immoral, but a crime against humanity.⁣ ⁣ To help families like these, please donate to the @aclu_nationwide and @raicestexas in their memory. #weareallimmigrants

Here's a cover for Tangy, Tart, Hot & Sweet that never got used for good reason. Another unfortunate bang situation. In my defense I was shooting the 10 commandments. Princess Bithia had bangs I guess! Who do I think I'm seducing here? Merguez sausage? #tbt #bangs

I was at the most 5 here. My mom loved to dress me like this. Scarf always in my hair. The bigger the belt the better. Tube tops. Ah the lovely childhood days when we girls didn’t yet know to suck in our bellies. The best thing about America to me was Central Park. I’d never seen anything like it. This is where you’ll find me this summer too: belly out, enjoying an Italian ice in Central Park 😂🍧 #fbf #summerinthecity #facepainting #citykid

Recently I went to a screening of @mindykaling & Emma Thompson’s @latenightmovie. Because it was done by Mindy, someone I have long admired and rooted for, I knew it would be funny, well written and that the acting from both women would be superb. What I did not expect, was that this seemingly delightful comedy would affect me so deeply.⁣ ⁣ The film addressed some serious and glaring inequities in the workplace with a smile and spoonful of sugar. It hinted at something deeper we brown girls feel so often in rooms where no one else looks like us. ⁣ ⁣ As a woman of color in entertainment I’ve had so many doors slammed in my face over the years. I am over the moon that brown girls all over the world will get to see that if they work hard and develop their talents, they too can aspire to Mindy’s heights. 💪🏾 #latenight #browngirlsrock #desigirls
