Anna Gunn: What’s in My Bag?

“I keep it overstuffed,” Anna Gunn admits of her aptly named Louis Vuitton Neverfull tote. “But I feel well prepared. If anyone ever cuts their hand, I’m like, ‘I have Band-Aids! I have Neosporin!'” The 48-year-old mom of Emma and Eila, currently on the NBC crime drama Shades of Blue (Sundays, 10 p.m.), unloads for Us Weekly.


“I carry an excessive amount of change because I feel like I’m going to use it in the parking meters. Then finally I’m like, ‘Oh, my God, it’s like carrying a boulder!'”

“I’ve had some skin cancer — I grew up in New Mexico — so I carry Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen. Of course, it’s SPF 100. I’m not taking any chances.”

“I’m rereading a book I loved in high school, The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter by Carson McCullers, when I have downtime.”


“I don’t wear a lot of makeup when I’m not working, but I’ll throw in a Dior eyebrow pencil.”


“I feel naked if I leave the house without my Moleskine notebook. I’ll tape a quote that has gotten to me on the front. Right now, it’s Confucius: ‘Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.'”

Gunn also carries a Tiffany key chain, Chanel aviators, La Prairie White Caviar Illuminating Moisturizing Cream, Dior Addict Lip Glow, a banana clip, Organic Food Bar Active Greens, a pouch of almonds, a gold S’Well water bottle, a tube of Arnica gel and loyalty cards for Neiman Marcus, Barneys New York and Bloomingdale’s.
