The 'Queen and Slim' actress is inspired by her mother's mantra towards beauty and would regularly get glammed up to make herself smile.

She shared: "I think something that I always love that my mom always would do is that she would use beauty to cheer herself up.

"If she were feeling down, it would be especially in those moments that she would glam up. And I feel like that. I kind of took that on as I got older and it was like literally putting on something could make my mood better."

Jodie is the face of Profumo di Fiori, Gucci Bloom's newest fragrance, and she revealed that her and her mother used to always "bond" over scent.

She added: "I love incense. I love my essential oils.

"I love flowers that have fragrances. I just love aroma. It’s just something that’s always been important to me. And maybe it’s because it is the thing that my mother always used to bond when I was young."

And Jodie went on to praise Gucci for ignoring any "narrow views of beauty".

She shared to Essence magazine: "It’s great to kind of be invited to play with amongst other women who I think are so incredible, amazing, and iconic.

"It’s fun to be part of this family. I find that Gucci doesn’t subscribe to those narrow views of beauty. I find it’s much bolder and at times eccentric and interesting."
