The new issue focuses on body image and the magazine talked to the cast about their thoughts on self love, learning to embrace their unique features and more.

Danielle Brooks, who plays Taystee, reveals: “Being [my size] in this industry is so rare…but regular people look more like me than runway models. To show beauty in a different way really lights me up inside. That’s so cheesy, but it does.”
