“Grief is so seductive,” she admitted to Shape, only two weeks after her grandmother’s passing.

“Part of me wants to crawl into a hole and cry because nothing else matters, but that’s just not an option.”

Instead, the actress turned to her charity work with the organization V-Day, which helps rape and violence victims.

“Since Mima’s passing, I have this sense of urgency and all this energy to get things done,” she explains.

“I need to stay furiously passionate for the rest of my life. I don’t want my tombstone to read: ‘She played it safe.'”

The August 2011 issue of Shape Magazine is available on newsstands July 25th.
