Actress and activist Sophia Bush sat down with TODAY Style to tell us why she loves her voice — both literally and figuratively. As part of her work with the #NoHormonesPlz campaign, which aims to bring awareness about different contraception methods, she also talked about what healthy body image means to her and why women should feel empowered … even when facing internet trolls.
I love my voice. I’ve sounded like this since, I think, second grade. It’s just how I talk. No, I’m not sick. No, I don’t have a cold. I will take your Ricolas, but I don’t particularly need them.
I think that there’s a beauty in self-acceptance and in owning whatever it is you are. And I was made this way. My voice sounds like this. Why would I want to change it?
