“I’ve always thought to not just be an actor, but to use my voice as a platform for good to make the world a slightly, slightly better place.”

Under the partnership, the actress has made her first appearance for the beauty company during the Cannes Film Festival 2018.

She will also represent L’Oréal Paris in the Worth It Show.

“I feel like these women, my fellow ambassadors, represent a voice, a power, a movement and an opinion.

“Over the years I’ve always thought to not just be an actor, but to use my voice as a platform for good to make the world a slightly, slightly better place and empower women the best that I can.”
