Philipps revealed while on Thursday’s episode of TODAY that she put her interest in activism aside early in her Hollywood career.

“At first I thought that to be successful I had to be a certain thing and basically only one of those things, kind of at the expense of other parts of myself,” she said.

The actress now thinks talking about the causes she cares about has actually become a good thing for her public image.

“Things have changed, and I think having different facets of talent and things that you’re interested in, especially as a woman, is good for your career now,” she said.
