Hot on the heels of her new film, Fresh Kills, the Hamptonite multihyphenate (@jesposito) shares her script.
BREAKFAST: Usually fast—then have a blueberry, spinach, flax, green pea smoothie
WAKE-UP TIME: It depends on how late I’m up. I’ve been trying to move before 8:30.
DIET: Celiac—so no gluten or dairy. Stay clear of soy, corn and refined sugars. Dark chocolate is daily.
DOPPELGÄNGER: My dog Goose (we have the same hair)
NEMESIS: Patriarchy, narcissists and excuses
WEAKNESS: TikTok and Bravo shows

LAST MEAL: Cauliflower pizza
MENTOR: I wish I had one.
SUMMER VIBE: Proud and PRESENT!
CURRENT MOOD: Create, create, create
PET: Goose, Gus
BEST ADVICE: You have nothing in this world to conquer apart from your mind. All your neighbors live there. Your gods and demons live there—remain detached from it.
PHILANTHROPY: Pushing forward equality, pushing forward female stories that matter. I started a women’s writing/acting group.
MANTRA: JUST. KEEP. GOING. TV SHOW

DINNER: Anything Italian
SOULMATE: My husband and my pups
BOOK AT BEDSIDE: Women Who Run With the Wolves
THEME SONG TO YOUR LIFE:“That’s Life,” Sinatra
VIEW: You can do anything you want. You just need to put blinders on and focus. OR—an ocean view or a Paris view.
IN THE WEEKEND BAG: Don’t like carrying bags.
FAVORITE WORK OF ART: Too many to list.
LOCAL HAMPTONS HAUNT: My yard
3 DESERT ISLAND ESSENTIALS: My gluten-free bread, music, my husband and dogs. (They come as a package.)
