Actress Thandie Newton with daughter Ripley at the Eat Yourself Young book launching in London, England. The event was held in the central part of the city on Thursday, March 22, 2012.
Thandie recently shed light on her decision to embrace a natural hair style. Newton states, “Its taken about 2 years to fully grow out my relaxer. I always thought I would go back to curly, because I didn’t want my daughters to judge their beautiful curls. I assumed they’d want to be like their Mom, and they’ve only ever known me with straight hair. However, it turns out they’re so secure in who they are as individuals that I don’t think it occurs to them to be like anyone else, and that includes me.”
The actress and husband Ol Parker proudly parent daughters Ripley (b. 2000) and Nico (b. 2004).
