When you’re a world famous actress and social media sensation, people tend to ask you a lot of the same questions: What is your workout routine? How do you get your skin so glowing? And while we were curious to ask our November cover star, Phoebe Tonkin, these questions (you can read up on those here), we also wanted to get into something a little… meatier.
Because Phoebe Tonkin is not only hugely eloquent and well-spoken, but she also has a lot to say. Like how she choses to use her substantial Instagram following (4.7 million and counting) to give a platform to causes she’s passionate about. Or how she values the creative inspiration of her female friendships. Or how her Mum taught her to try her hand at everything—even if she didn’t nail it first go—a lesson she carries with her to this day.
In short: Phoebe Tonkin is wise beyond her 29 years—which is why we wanted a glimpse at her hard-learned wisdom. Touching on everything from digital detoxing to her unique approach to beauty and self-care, watch Phoebe Tonkin’s best life advice above.
