You’re an Ambassador for the Stand Up To Cancer organization. What made you decide to get involved?
AH: I was initially drawn to the organization to help spread awareness about, specifically, prostate cancer. It’s just such a huge issue in our country and in our world, and it’s something that men don’t like to talk about, so I needed to do something to get the conversation started. My husband would avoid the topic, and so would the other men in my life. So I needed to do something to show them that this disease is serious and that it’s imperative to go to the doctor and get yourself checked out and keep your health a priority. People’s father,s uncles, brothers…these are all such important people in everyone’s lives.
You sound like a busy lady! How do you manage to stay looking so flawless?
AH: I always tell people that the best kept beauty secret is sleep. Sleep! Just go to sleep! Too many people don’t get enough sleep…and drink enough water. Those two simple things will take you very far in life, my friends. And of course, eat healthy and try to put in your body a ton of fruits and vegetables. Load up on those as much as you can.
What else are you working on right now?
AH: Well, my main focus, of course, is being a mom. My daughters are just growing by the minute and it’s terrifying — make it stop! And then, of course, right now I’m working on Rizzoli & Isles on TNT, so you better watch! It’s such a fun show to work on and the cast is just awesome. Playing my character, Jane, a detective, I swear…I’ve learned more than ever from just reading the script. Every single episode is new and fresh and it’s just a really great show to watch.
