Becky Newton in September's Redbook!


Becky Newton plays the sexy and sassy receptionist on ABC’s Ugly Betty. She recently opened up to Redbook Magazine about her opinions on beauty and more.

On real beauty:

“When I think of the most beautiful women, they’re not supermodels. My mother is 53 and comfortable in her own skin. My mom doesn’t spend hours in front of the mirror or at the gym. She doesn’t deprive herself of anything. It’s ultimate beauty when the inside and the outside match up.”

On playing Amanda:

“I’ve learned there’s nothing wrong with being a little fussy. I used to pride myself on being low-maintenance—I wore it like a badge of honor. I would leave the set with my hair all big and full after the show and feel like I had to immediately throw it up in a ponytail. Now I think jeans, a tee and big hair are a great combination. Glamour is fun! Spending time to get ready isn’t about being fussy: it’s about taking care of myself.”

On working at a fictional fashion magazine:

“Amanda has the best job. She has access to all the clothing, but she doesn’t have to do all the work.”

On beauty trends:

“While I’m sure I’ve left the house looking like a raccoon, it’s better to try and fail than not to have fun with it.”
