Jennifer Beals: What’s in My Bag?




Jennifer Beals' What's in My Bag




Self-proclaimed hippie Jennifer Beals knows the power of a reusable bag. 

“My stuff used to be in a Ziploc,” admits the star of NBC’s The Night Shift (Wednesdays, 10 p.m.). “Now I have a wallet — a big step!” Beals, 52, who lives in Canada with her husband, entrepreneur Ken Dixon, spills her boho blue Tod’s tote for Us Weekly.

A Crown Jewel

“My roommate from college [Jessica Tact] and I went antiquing and found a crown charm. My hand will touch it, and I know what it is without seeing it. It puts a smile on my face because I remember our friendship.”

Silver Sheath

“My passport cover holds my Canadian resident card. It’s shiny, so when you pull it out you say, ‘Oh, isn’t this pretty!’”

Catching Rays

“To make sure I get enough vitamin D, I keep drops in my purse. You’d have to stay in the sun half-naked and live in Hawaii to get enough vitamin D from the sun.”

Smooth Surfaces

“I have an emery board because it’s aggravating when a nail breaks and you’ve got it hanging out.”

Clean as a Whistle

“Lavender wipes come in handy when you’re riding on the subway and realize that all of a sudden, you’re pretty grimy. I use them on my hands and the back of my neck.”
