“It’s funny, I don’t shop as much as I used to. The whole idea of consuming isn’t as much of a big deal. We used to have to have more and more and bigger and bigger—it’s a lot more relaxed if you just think of being conscious all day of what you’re doing. If there’s a way that I can have less, it’s great. I’m not against anything, I’m not against fur or meat; I’m just about what makes sense in your life.”

—Kelly Rutherford, who stars in TV’s Gossip Girl, on why having less just makes sense.
