Sophia Bush Covers ‘Zooey’ Magazine June/July 2011
Sophia Bush covers ‘Zooey’ June/July 2011.The lovely actress talks about her passion for activism and the power to make changes, proving she’s not just another Hollywood beautiful face, but also a smart woman who fights for humanity, environment and art.
The ‘One Tree Hill’ star told the magazine that her activist qualities started to develop since she was a child, saying that she loved to do community service at an elementary age.
“It’s funny. As a kid, I asked my mom if I could start a beach clean up on Saturdays with my friends. She said, ‘Well, Sweetheart, I don’t think many six-year-olds are going to want to go to the beach and pick up trash on Saturday.’ But, I was very gung ho about the whole thing. Causes and social issues have always really registered with me,” Sophia said in the cover story.
She has always been aware of the fact that one must do the right thing despite all obstacles and difficulties. “I think I’ve always had a very clear idea of what’s right and wrong. And a very clear sense that we should always try to do the right thing, even when it’s not the easy thing. It’s something that I think baffled my parents at moments, but they’ve been really supportive, too. They’ve given me an exceptional education, from the time that I was a little girl,” Sophia said.
“I realized there’s such a proliferation of media, and when you look at the numbers, you see that more young people check TMZ every day than read CNN; that, to me, is unfortunate, and that’s something that I want to change,”the young actress confessed.
Sophia currently portrays Brooke Davis in the CW series ‘One Tree Hill”. Speaking about her role, the actress says that, “In the beginning, there was a lot about Brooke that really bothered me. There were a lot of things that she did that really upset me as far as examples that she set for young women”.
