June 16th, 2010:
Exciting news we had our first phone interview with Victoria!! Below you will find her answers to our first round of questions. We hope to do this regularly so check back often.
1.Will you ever act again?
I never stopped acting.
2. What is most fulfilling for you acting, skincare or writing?
I'm committed to all three, whichever one I am doing in that moment is my favorite. I feel very lucky that I have a number of things that I enjoy doing and they also pay the rent.
3. How do you stay so youthful?
I believe that life is a series of choices and that includes how we feel and how we conduct ourselves regarding the aging process for me I find that embracing process not giving in or giving up but handling it in a way that enables youthful maturity is where I have found my comfort zone.
4. What is the best advice for someone who wants a figure like yours?
Number one, thank you. And Number two I don't think anyone should aspire to a figure just like mine, I think that each of us is blessed with a home that we call our body and each of us should try to take the best care possible of our personal and unique body.
5. I see that you do so much for charity, in particular for the environment.
My grandmother was a farmer and instilled a great deal of respect in me about planet earth and that whatever you take you must give back. I don't do it perfectly but I do try every day of my life to treat the earth with as much respect as possible.
6. What do you fear?
I think a lot of times in life its not the giant things we fear so much as the idea of something. There are so many little things that we can have fearful expectations about and yet if you take a step back and analyze the situation the fear exceeds the reality. So I've tried in my lifetime to confront my fears rather than let them dictate the way I live. So I suppose my greatest fear is falling victim to 1000 little fears.
7. What book are you currently reading?
I just finished A Happy Marriage by Rafael Yglesias. At the same time I was reading Amy Blooms new book Where the God of Love Hangs Out. Before that I was reading Shadow Tag, and I've just started a new book called A Change in Altitude by Anita Schneed. I love reading and I have a intimate group of friends of which I'm the ring leader and its a sort of disorganized book club.
8. What do you do in your spare time?
I enjoy writing not only for profesional reasons but also as a personal pastime. I enjoy being in the water, swimming, water skiing, I enjoy snow skiing, volleyball, hiking, and one of my favorite things to do, which doesn't involve a sport at all is sit down with a cup of tea and have a meaningful conversation with someone I love.
9. Do you have advice for someone trying to become successful business women like yourself?
I think in order to be a success at anything, first and foremost you must love it. if you succeed at something you don't love it it will be a very shallow victory. I think that sometimes people are confused between money and value, I believe if you get to do something you love every day, if you give it your best effort and you strive to be excellent whatever that choice is then everyday you get up and go do that and it pays the rent and feeds you and your family that is true value and indeed happiness. Money makes a terrible master but a great servant. I think if we are more concerned about what we do and how we conduct ourselves then each of us is starting from a very rich place.
10. What was your first job?
My first job was as a commercial actress when I was 5 years old. It was for a chain of dance studios in Georgia. I don't even remember what I made because the check went to my parents.
11. Do you have advice for an actor trying to get their first job?
Study acting, study voice, study movement and dance and be sure to have a day job. Remember if you don't repect what you do how can you respect yourself.
12. Are you most proud of your acting work or what you have done for skincare?
I'm always most proud of the thing that I'm currently doing.
Oceana and NRDC Join Forces to Address Gulf Drilling Disaster
Donation from actress Victoria Principal funds clean energy advocacy
Washington, DC/Los Angeles - In the wake of the April 20 Deepwater Horizon offshore drilling disaster that has spewed millions of gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico for over a month, Victoria Principal has stepped forward with extremely generous six-figure donations to both Oceana and the Natural Resource Defense Council (NRDC) to support their joint efforts in the Gulf.
"Because the Gulf Coast oil spill is the largest man-made environmental disaster our country has ever experienced, I felt that it would be impossible for any one organization to address the enormity of the problem," said Principal. "By providing the funds to both Oceana and NRDC, it allows these two extraordinary non profits, to move away from competition and fundraising and to instead, marshal and focus their joint efforts around this monumental undertaking of problem solving and action. By forming this alliance, Oceana and NRDC, have provided an embryonic prototype for working together more quickly and successfully in the future. At the end of the day, we all want the same thing...to be of help," she added.
Oceana and NRDC have led efforts to address the devastating consequences of offshore drilling. Principal's donation will immediately ramp up a focused joint-venture to address the oil crisis damage, and will also support a shift in energy policy towards renewable resources.
"Offshore drilling is a dirty and nonrenewable source of energy," said Oceana Chief Executive Officer Andrew Sharpless. "We know that offshore drilling is not the future. Thanks to the help of Victoria's donation, Oceana and NRDC can work together to encourage policymakers to develop a real plan for a clean energy future."
"The importance of this issue to everyone's future means that we should work together," said NRDC President Frances Beinecke. "We need to do more to avoid this type of disaster. We need to shift our energy policy in this country toward energy sources that are cleaner and renewable and that will not spill or run out."
Since the initial explosion on April 20, on board the BP-owned Deepwater Horizon rig, where 11 rig workers lost their lives, the leak has spewed more than 17 million gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico at a rate over 12,000 barrels a day.
