If you have a problem competing with other women, Sophia Bush has the solution for you.
She’s down to earth, she’s a master brunch-maker and she considers her inner circle of girlfriends sacred. If you’ve ever suspected Sophia Bush would make the perfect bestie, you were right.
The actress spends her time in seemingly equal parts campaigning to save the world as an eco-warrior and whipping up culinary delights like French toast for the biggest loves in her life: her friends and family.
And, oh you know, tackling TV and film roles that empower women to be exactly what we are — beautiful and brilliant, but also deeply flawed. Complex. Human.
In fact, part of what drew Bush to her current role as tough-as-nails detective, Erin Lindsay, on the gritty hit series Chicago P.D. was the fact that the showrunners and writers allow the heroes (like Lindsay) to be flawed.
It’s Bush’s desire to tap into this woefully underrepresented aspect of the female personification in Hollywood characters that informs many of her roles.
“There are plenty of things I’ve read over the years and things I’ve been offered that I said no to, because at the end of the day, I want to play characters who I want to hang out with,” she said. “I want to play characters who I think are interesting women who have something to say — I’m not looking to just play somebody’s girlfriend, by any means.”
Bush makes it her mission in life to surround herself with strong, resilient women like the ones she plays on screen. They are, she insists, “the most important thing in the world.”
She and her inner circle spend so much time together, in fact, that they’re essentially considered a package deal. “One of our friends is getting married this summer, and her soon-to-be husband said, ‘Oh, I knew when I proposed to Alexis that I was getting all seven of you — I knew I was really marrying all of you,'” Bush recounted, laughing.
But for Bush, it’s a particular point of pride that in today’s world — where women bashing other women has basically become a pastime — she has a group of friends who are so supportive.
“Women need other women,” she said. “There is no finite bucket of success, and there is no finite bucket of good partners out there that we’re supposed to compete over — there are plenty of men and there are plenty of jobs and there are plenty of accolades to win and babies to have.”
Bottom line? There’s enough of whatever it is we want to go around, ladies. No need to resort to cattiness or turning every interaction with another woman into a competition.
The outspoken star underscored that notion, saying, “The more that women are happy for other women, the more the world will support women. And it’s on us to be champions of one another.”
Thankfully, the tides are starting to turn, says Bush — and she credits female empowerment organizations like I Am That Girl (for which she serves as a board member) and The Kind Campaign. “Girls are realizing that other girls are not the enemy,” she shared, “and I think we’ve got to keep reinforcing that until it’s just a given.”
Naturally, when you do make yourself vulnerable to other people, as Bush entreats all women to do with each other, there’s the possibility that trust may be misplaced.
Actually, it’s a trait — trusting everybody, even when she shouldn’t — Bush considers to be both her biggest flaw and one of her greatest strengths.
“I think it’s something you learn, especially as a woman, to trust your intuition more the older you get,” she said. “So I’m definitely very glad to be in this new chapter, but I also wouldn’t want to take it back, because I’d rather believe in people than not.”
Pausing pensively for a moment before continuing, Bush then added with confidence, “Occasionally that’ll bite you in the ass, but that’s OK. Your life lessons make you who you are.”
“Sometimes it’s the strongest people who fall the hardest,” the actress tells THR about her character’s surprise decision in the season two finale.
[Warning: Spoilers ahead for the Chicago P.D. season two finale, “Born Into Bad News.”]
Lindsay (Sophia Bush) has been on a downward spiral ever since Nadia’s death, but she did something truly unthinkable on Wednesday’s season two finale of Chicago P.D. She quit.
“The reason Erin is a cop [is] because she wants to personally help people; she wants to know at the end of the day who she was able to help and what she was able to do,” Bush tells The Hollywood Reporter. “Being hit on such a personal level — this really hits the core of that and shakes the ground out of from under her.”
The episode’s final moments, in which Lindsay told her boss and father figure Voight (Jason Beghe) that she was bad news and gave back her badge, was just as much of a shock for the actress as it was for the viewers. “The notion that she would even hand her badge over is something that I had to talk to the writers about a lot as we were developing what would happen to her and what this struggle would look like,” says Bush.
So why did she do it? Bush spoke with THR about how Nadia’s death “ruptured” Lindsay, why she turned to her estranged mother and what’s ahead for season three.
