GOLDEN GLOBE AWARD-winning Actress TRACEE ELLIS ROSS covers the April 2017 issue of HEALTH Magazine!!!

Here are some interview interludes:

This season, your Black-ish character, Bow, is pregnant with her fifth child. What's that like?

I have to wear this very heavy baby bump, so it's good when I go to the gym and remind my body what it actually feels like!

What parts of your personality did you get from your mom versus your dad?

I got a sense of humor from my dad. We have a major connection on that, to the point where my mom is like, "For the love of God, you are your father. OK, Bob..." Oh, and my dad and I really connect on skin care. When I was in high school, he was like [running her fingertips up one cheek as if applying moisturizer], "You always gotta sweep up." And my dad is 71 and his skin is gorgeous. So now, whenever I find a new product, I send it to my dad.

What's the best thing you've ever done for your body?

One, talk nice to it. And two, find workouts that make me feel good. And I have to say that Tracy Anderson's workout the last five years has been really good for me. I love the studio atmosphere, I love how beautiful and sexy and long and strong I look when I work out, and I love the loud music. I find that, as adults, we stay so regimented in our movement, even if we get on a treadmill. The music changes all the patterns, and my body gets to move freely, so you feel amazing—which is ultimately the point of the workouts, too. One of the things that's most encouraging is you see a roomful of women working their asses off and looking beautiful.

How many days a week do you usually work out?

It's three days a week on a regular basis, sometimes four. Sometimes I take a little break, but the truth is, I feel the best when I work out. I feel very strong. I didn't wake up like this. At 22, I woke up like that. At 44, I work really hard for this! I am on TV, and I don't want to lie to anybody. I'm not at my skinniest, I'm not at my fattest, but I live my life. This is my body. Health and the functionality of my body are more important than what it looks like.

How has your style evolved?

I've always dressed the same way. I love a slim-fitted blazer, a high-waisted trouser. I love dresses and sweatpants. I think less is more, simple is good, and black is always key. It makes anything look good—even sweatpants! Put a fancy jacket over it, and no one will know.

What's your favorite thing to do when you're not working?

Being with my family. Just laugh and giggle and watch movies and eat. And I watch a lot of TV. I like dramas—I don't watch any sitcoms.

What message would you send your 30-year-old self?

Hang in there. It's not gonna be what you expect, but in some ways, it's so much better. Life is not a fairy tale. It's a little sobering, but it's quite wonderful. This is me. This is who I am. I'm not 22, and I don't look like I looked when I was 22! So love the body you got now, because in 10 years, you're gonna be wishing that you had it.
