Some things really do get better with age—wine, cheese, Tracee Ellis Ross.

We first fell in love with the big-eyed beauty since seeing her on Girlfriends almost 15 years ago. And on the cover of Upscale magazine, she seriously looks like she hasn’t aged since.

Anyone know what creams and serums she’s using? We need some of that, stat. In her interview, she doesn’t share any of her skin secrets, but the actress does open up about her new ABC series Black-ish, being black, and her body. Check out some excerpts below.

On Black-ish, which is set to premiere in September:

“The beauty of the show is that it’s just a family comedy, but it has another layer to it. I don’t know what I necessarily want people to think or talk about after watching it, but for me in general with cultural identity, racial identity and feminist identity, dialogue is important. People communicating in a light and open way about issues that have a lot of depth and weight to them is a great thing.”

On what it means to be Black:

“What is blackness? What is being black? Who defines that and do we need to define that? I don’t have the answers to all of those questions but I think these are the conversations we’re all still having.”

On loving her body:

“I’m proud of my body—I work very hard to keep my body at 41 years old, because my booty could drop… Gravity is not a joke.”
