Sophia Bush is a role model to so many young women around the world. In addition to being a great actress, Sophia’s also an activist, inspiring her fans to get involved in their communities. Sophia supports many nobel causes and often takes to Twitter to encourage people to stay informed.
Over the weekend, Sophia’s hard work was recognized as she was honored at National Women’s History Museum and Glamour Magazine’s Women Making History Event. We were lucky enough to talk to Sophia about the event, plus she spilled some secrets about Chicago P.D.‘s upcoming season! She even talks about hanging out with Lady Gaga’s dog! See what Sophia had to say in the interview below!
Sophia is known for taking a stand and fighting for what she believes in, and we were glad to see that she was being honored for her achievements. When we spoke with Sophia, we had to ask her how it felt to be honored at the event. Sophia told us, “To get the call and find out I was being given an award today was incredibly surreal. I spend my life talking to women and reminding them of their worth and their potential and through those conversations they do the same for me. To realize that people are paying attention to the things that I sometimes think that I’m doing by myself on my computer late at night is amazing.” We’re definitely paying attention Sophia!
Since so many young girls look up to Sophia, we wanted to know what advice she would have for those girls if she could go around to high schools and talk to them. Sophia said, “I do actually, I speak at quite a few schools and we run a lot of really amazing local chapter programs through ‘I Am That Girl.’ Our whole mission is to get girls to be in love and express who they are, because who they are is enough. They don’t need to be anything else and the world forgets to tell us that, so we really need to tell each other, we need to be each other’s support system.” So true!
We couldn’t let Sophia go without asking her about Chicago P.D.’s upcoming season. Sophia revealed to us, “A lot of really exciting things are going on. You’ll learn a lot more about where Lindsay comes from, you’ll meet her mother, which is just as shocking to her as it will be to the audience.”
On the show, Sophia’s character Detective Lindsay has two love interests. One being her co-worker, Detective Halstead, played by Jesse Lee Soffer, and the other being Chicago Fire’s Kelly Severide, played by Taylor Kinney. When we asked Sophia about the love triangle she told us, “They really enjoy this toggling between the two guys. But they’re both super handsome and strong, so I’m not upset about it. I’m like ‘Oh I have to hug this one today? Okay!’’’ We told Sophia we were fine with seeing her character with either guy and she said, “You know what? Me too! When I work with Taylor I get to play with (Lady) Gaga’s dog, who I’m obsessed with. And you know working with Jesse is also amazing so I have no complaints.” Fun fact: Taylor Kinney is dating Lady Gaga, which is why Sophia gets to play with her dog! So cool!
Be sure to check out Chicago P.D. when it returns on Sept. 24 at 10/9c on NBC!
Amidst the Emmy weekend soirées, Norman Lear, Kate Walsh, and Tichina Arnold gathered to celebrate the importance of females in media at the 3rd annual Women Making History program Saturday afternoon at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles. Hosted by Devious Maids stars Brianna Brown and Ana Ortiz, the brunch celebrated the accomplishments of actress Sophia Bush, International Speedway Corporation CEO and NASCAR executive vice president Lesa France Kennedy and Academy Award, Golden Globe and WGA award-winning writer Callie Khouri.
Bush, currently stars as a female detective in Chicago PD, is also an active philanthropist who has raised over $400,000 on Crowdrise.com and serves as a board member for Pencils of Promise. Looking back on how she’s grown since her One Tree Hill days, Bush says she knows all women struggle with the feeling that they might not be accepted.
“When I think about what I wish I could say to my younger self and what I really try to say to women every day, it’s that you’re enough,” Bush told THR. “You don’t have to do any more and you don’t have to make yourself into something someone else wants you to be or that you think would be more appreciated.”
Bush also noted that Nashville actress Connie Britton is one of her female role models.
“It’s surreal. Sometimes we’re sitting having a meal and I think holy shit how did this happen,” said Bush. “She’s able to do so many things to challenge people without making people feel criticized. She’s the dream.”
Actress and newest Grey’s Anatomy guest star Geena Davis presented to her Thelma and Louise screenwriter Khouri.
“She’s a revolutionary,” said Davis on working with Khouri who is also the creator and executive producer of Nashville. “She creates characters that are in charge of their own fate to the bitter end. Female characters who are in charge of themselves.”
Producer David Hill presented to Kennedy who praised her mother and grandmother for being the backbone behind her grandfather as he built NASCAR.
“She had a number of tricks,” said Kennedy of her grandmother. “She had two sets of books for financial records. One was the accurate set and the other one was the one she showed my grandfather. If he had known there was any money in the bank I would not be standing here today. No way.”
Paula Abdul, Rizzoli & Isles actress Sharon Lawrence and Maria Bello were also in attendance. Many influential women such as Maya Angelou and Hilary Clinton were mentioned throughout the program, but Abdul told THR she admires the wisdom of Whoopi Goldberg.
“A fun fact that no one knows is that there was a point in time that I briefly was a roommate with Whoopi Goldberg so she’s incredible,” Abdul told THR.” She was on her way and I was transitioning from being a choreographer into pop music. She’s always been incredible and I’ve always looked up to her.”
The National Women’s History Museum aims to empower women by having women’s narratives represented in a museum on the National Mall. The non-profit organization has received support from Shonda Rhimes, Meryl Streep and Frances Fisher.

Another Hollywood couple has head into splitsville.
It turns out Chicago P.D. star Sophia Bush and her Google engineer boyfriend Dan Fredinburg broke up earlier this year, according to reports, and it seems as though the pair called it quits because of their hectic schedules (Bush shoots the series in Chicago and Fredinburg is based in Northern California).
“They decided to end their relationship in February,” a source tells People. “When you see one another for 24 hours every four weeks, it’s impossible to maintain a romantic relationship. They weren’t able to spend the time together that was necessary to nurture that kind of relationship.”
The insider adds that the two are “still really good friends,” and that “they both care about one another and it was completely amicable.”
The duo first confirmed their romance in April 2013 and the brunette beauty admitted on Instagram last August that she usually shies away from “personal stuff.”
“I wouldn’t have been the same without this man by my side,” the former Partners star gushed about Fredinburg along with a red carpet photograph of the handsome pair at the Do Something Awards. “Thank you, Dan, for loving my passion and my fight. Thank you for being the spark to my match.”
Us Weekly was first to report about the split.
