“Untamed is packed with incredible insight about what it means to be a woman today,” says The BigLittle Lies actress, 44.
“What we learned as girls about how to behave or believe and why we need to free ourselves from a lot of the ideas that don’t work anymore (hot tip: being ‘selfless’ is not the highest goal a woman can achieve).This book spoke to me so loudly and clearly. I swear I highlighted something in EVERY chapter.”
