The 41-year-old actress said in the video she posted to Instagram: “Hey everyone. I’ve decided to spend more time on social media for the sake of my own mental health. I feel better if I look at my phone for eight and a half hours every day. And it’s helping that breakout and that pimple patch.” She later said, “I’m in my 40s so watching Love Island and The Bachelors is really good for me. Whether in paradise or in normal villas. She concluded by saying, “So you’re going to see a lot more of me on social media just because of my physical and mental health.”
