We fell in love with Storm Reid when she made her big screen debut in the 2019 blockbuster hit, A Wrinkle in Time. Now, the talented teen has grown up before our eyes, becoming a Hollywood household name. Recently, Reid sat down for the latest episode of Instyle’s Ladies First With Laura Brown, to talk optimism and more.
Reid on how she stays positive during these chaotic times
I try to understand how I’m feeling. I try to understand how others are feeling, but I think I just operate from an immense space of gratitude and just being grateful for everything and anything.
Of course I didn’t have the most perfect childhood and everything wasn’t easy and things aren’t easy now. I think we have all experienced that this year. But I think my mom has always told me that life is short, and we have to grasp and be grateful to be able to take up space in the world no matter what’s going on.
Reid on how she approaches projects that she’s involved with
So I think my approach as an actress and as a producer is to be a part of projects that really mean something to me, that match my morals and values. It doesn’t matter what genre it is, but it has to be representative of the entire world.
Reid on using her platform to speak up about what is right.
I feel like when I’m in my bones the most, or when I am most powerful is when I am speaking my mind, and I’m taking up space undeniably — whether that’s on social media or at a party, like I am here for a reason and, and I’m going to make that known. And it doesn’t have to be obnoxious, but just to be able to have an understanding and a sense of self-love for me as a person, but know that I’m also growing and we’re evolving. I think there’s something so beautiful in that.
