Let’s put that 2018 calendar in the trash. PHEW. I think we can all agree: That’s that. As we look to 2019, we asked 13 celebrities how they’re approaching the coming year. Here’s the Big 2019 Energy that stars like Lana Condor, Jodie Comer, and Patricia Arquette are bringing to the table.
Lana Condor (To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before)
I’m bringing badass energy. You know? I’m taking no prisoners.
Jodie Comer and Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Killing Eve)
Jodie Comer: I’m bringing myself!
Phoebe Waller-Bridge: Villanenergy!
Jodie Comer: Yes, that should be the title!
Elsie Fisher and Bo Burnham (Eighth Grade)
Elsie Fisher: Positive energy. I feel so lucky for the experience I had in 2018, and hopefully I can bring some of that into 2019.
Bo Burnham: Patience and openness. I think that’s what’s called for from very tall men like myself—trying to be patient and listen. I’d rather not be this tall. I’m 6’7”. There are skeletal issues…we don’t have to go into it.
Linda Cardellini (Green Book)
I know a lot of people say it, but I’m going to work a lot harder at gratitude. I think it takes practice, so I’m going to practice as though I were playing soccer or something.
Our Lady J (Pose)
I’m bringing in an energy of release. There’s so much negativity in the world that we can hold on to and I am walking forward and releasing all of that. That energy is not a part of who I am or who I want to be.
Danielle Macdonald (Bird Box)
Strength, openness, positiveness.
Patricia Arquette (Escape From Dannemora)
I’m going to try to be a little more selfish. I know that’s kind of a weird thing, but just to say no. To listen to my little quiet voice inside when I feel tapped out, and just have better boundaries with that. And I want to be organized. I want to not be a pack rat in 2019.
Topher Grace (BlacKkKlansman) and Ashley Hinshaw (Chicago Med)
Ashley Hinshaw: We’re bringing a patient energy.
Topher Grace: Well, we have a 14-month-old, so…
Ashley Hinshaw: Yeah, we’re just breathing.
Annie Starke (The Wife)
I want to bring confidence, optimism, and being a badass.
Thomasin McKenzie (Leave No Trace)
Goodness, kindness, and generosity.
