A little Valentine’s Day prep with a favorite poem by E.E. Cummings, and a favorite recipe by @amychaplin ❤️❤️ Swipe for chia pudding recipe. Blend: 1 cup cashews 4 cups filtered water 7 Medjool dates, pitted ¼ teaspoon cinnamon powder 2 tablespoons coconut butter 4 teaspoons vanilla extract Place ½ cup chia seeds in a bowl and add in blended mixture, whisking to prevent clumping. Place in fridge for 1 hour. Remove and serve with heart-shaped strawberries if you like! 🍓
So moved that one of my dear friends @nithyaforthecity is running for LA City Council, District 4. Visit my Stories to learn why I’m voting for Nithya. If you aren’t yet registered, visit rockthevote.org. Elections are happening March 3rd and at home voting has already started. So important to vote at the local level too.
I was so honored to present Sunday with @tchalamet . He’s so incredibly talented, so fun and so smart—and a third of the films he’s been in have been directed by women!
“I dedicate this to all the Indigenous kids all over the world who want to do art and dance and write stories. We are the original storytellers and we can make it here as well.” - @taikawaititi . Mazal tov, friend! Well deserved.

Just finished the Lost Children Archive, a book about a family on a road trip trying to capture the echos of lost child migrants. It’s painfully beautiful. I could not recommend it more highly. #whatnatreads
Here’s my take on a traditional Israeli breakfast of chickpeas, salad, and tahini, adapted from my mom’s recipe. It may seem complicated but it’s pretty much just a lot of slicing, stirring, and blending 🙂 For chickpeas: Over medium heat, add avocado oil, 2 whole peeled garlic cloves, salt, one box of whole peeled tomatoes, and one cup of pre-cooked chickpeas. Add cumin and salt to taste. For salad: Finely chop cherry tomatoes, Persian cucumbers and parsley; dress with lemon juice, olive oil, and salt to taste. For bread: Slice half a baguette lengthwise, drizzle olive oil and sprinkle salt, throw in preheated oven to 400 F around 10 minutes or until golden brown. For hummus: In blender, add half a cup pre-cooked chickpeas, one garlic clove (peeled ), juice of one lemon, 4 tbsp water, 1 tsp of salt.
Today I honor my great-grandparents, Leiser and Leah Hershlag, who perished along with millions of others at the hands of the Nazis. In the words of Anne Frank: “I see the world being slowly transformed into a wilderness; I hear the approaching thunder that, one day, will destroy us too. I feel the suffering of millions. And yet, when I look up at the sky, I somehow feel that everything will change for the better, that this cruelty too shall end, that peace and tranquility will return once more.” #HolocaustRemembranceDay
This is how you do this, right? 🙃 #dollypartonchallenge
18 years old, with @ashley_judd in Where the Heart Is. Little did I know that 20 years later, my costar @ashley_judd , would become an absolute icon and hero to women everywhere for her courage taking a stand against Harvey Weinstein. To all the survivors out there today: please know you have many people who love you and are grateful for your bravery.
Last year I partnered with @americaferrera and @iwillharness to host a criminal justice reform salon to uplift the amazing work of Susan Burton’s @anewwayoflifela and @osopepatrisse ’s @reformlajails . Members of @coldplay attended and immediately offered to help support these organizations, culminating in last night’s amazing performance. I had the privilege of introducing Susan Burton, an angel among us. Feeling so grateful to be a part of this incredible network of allies, advocates, and leaders. Please visit voteyesonr.org to learn more about Measure R for LA county voters, and visit @anewwayoflifela to support Susan Burton’s efforts to house women and help them find dignity after prison. #iwillharness #yesonr (Photos by Matt Miller )
Backstage with the incredible Susan Burton last night. Thank you @coldplay for a fun and inspiring show to benefit Susan Burton’s @anewwayoflifela and thank you @iwillharness and @americaferrera for the salon that led to this generosity! Visit @anewwayoflifela to learn more about the importance of reentry and criminal justice reform.

The greatest job I ever got was to play with Elmo on Sesame Street! #tbt
I miss Mike every day but reading the new oral history about him: Life Isn’t Everything, is like having a small piece of him back. Can’t read enough of it.
For the first Sunday brunch of the year—make vegan s’mores pancakes! Mix together: 1 cup flour 1 tbsp baking powder 1 tbsp Apple cider vinegar 2 tbsp sugar As much cinnamon as you like!

Heat canola oil in a pan and then spoon in circles of the batter. 2. Add vegan chocolate chips and vegan marshmallows (I use dandy’s ). 3. Flip and serve with maple syrup when golden brown. Have a sweet 2020!
Just started Lost Children Archive and it’s gorgeous, poetic, inventive, and political. While the book is about marital tension, child migrant detention, and atrocities against Native Americans — Valeria Luiselli is able to find beauty and even occasional humor within such dark topics. Read along and let me know what you think? #janbookpick #whatnatreads
