•• Elizabeth Perkins has the best natural beauty tips. How does the star of  “Big,” “About Last Night” and “Weeds” look ageless? “It’s called being happy and loving yourself for who you are,” she insists. “It’s also about not taking life so seriously.” Perkins says that her happiness was almost derailed by a serious medical diagnosis.

“When I was diagnosed with diabetes I felt like, ‘This is the end of the road for me.’ What I came to learn was it was just the beginning of an amazing experience.” This brings us back to the topic at hand: beauty. “I look this way because I eat better these days and I exercise more. Those are truly the best beauty secrets besides water and not tanning. The more you take care of yourself, the better you will look and feel. That’s the true beauty secret.”The 52-year-old native of Queens even takes that up a notch. “If you make taking care of yourself a family affair then everyone will be healthier for it,” she says.

– Elizabeth Perkins on living with diabetes:
Her new campaign called “Diabetes Co-stars.” It honors those special people in your life who help you manage the disease. “We’re making a documentary about it and holding a nationwide casting call cheering on the people living with diabetes.”

You can go to the website diabetescostars.com to nominate someone special in your life who helps you deal with diabetes or has had the biggest impact on your diabetes journey. Or you can share your story of how you inspire a loved one living with diabetes. “I feel very passionate about this campaign,” she says. “We need to honor the people who cheer us on and support us while also offering us strength. Her costar has been her husband, famed cinematographer Julio Macat. Living with diabetes hasn’t been easy. “I felt so alone and isolated after I was diagnosed and no one should feel that way,” she says.

Elizabeth Perkins was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in 2005. She admits that it wasn’t an easy time for her. “It was very overwhelming to me. I’m someone who tends to isolate and keep to myself,” she says. “The truth was I wasn’t sure how to manage diabetes on my own. “Once I started opening up and seeking support, I realized that I needed a co-star on my journey.

•• Many of you know Elizabeth Perkins as the talented actress from crowd-favorites like Big, The Flintstones, Miracle on 34th Street, and of course, Weeds, but did you know she was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2005? Elizabeth’s passion for diabetes advocacy and awareness is unyielding, which is why Sanofi US is proud to have her on board on Diabetes Co-Stars campaign!

Q: You’ve starred in major films and TV shows and are currently working on the upcoming TV show How to Live with Your Parents (for the Rest of Your Life). When did you first become interested in acting?
A: I have wanted to be an actress for as long as I can remember! I studied acting at the Goodman School of Drama in Chicago before I traveled to New York in the early 1980’s to pursue my career. I’ve been in the business ever since and it’s been a wonderful, exciting and creative experience.

Q: What has been your favorite role to play thus far and why?
A: I’ve enjoyed every role that I’ve played throughout my career. From Wilma in The Flintstones, to playing opposite of Tom Hanks in Big and then venturing into television on the Showtime series, Weeds. Every character taught me something new and special. I am also very excited about my role in the upcoming show, How to Live with Your Parents (for the Rest of Your Life) which is scheduled to air on ABC in Spring 2013.

Q: While many people know you for your acting talents, they may not know that you were diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2005. Can you tell us a little about how your life has changed since then?
A: When I was first diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, I only shared it with my closest family and friends. I was filming the television series Weeds, so in the beginning I would test my blood glucose and take my medication alone in my trailer. With the encouragement of my friends and family, I sat down with my doctor to talk about how I could improve my overall diabetes management while on set. In addition to treatment, my doctor and I worked out a diet and exercise plan that fits my busy schedule. Now I keep diabetes-friendly foods in my trailer and remember to take a nice long walk with my husband Julio and our dogs when I get home. It helps serve as both exercise and as a calming, stress reliever. Read More

•• The lovely Elizabeth Perkins joined today the crew on ABC’s “The Chew”. She was talking about she hates Thanksgiving. Well, she doesn’t hate everything about it but she does hate when someone brings a guest. She said she doesn’t want a guest at her Thanksgiving. She wants to stay in her pajamas and be a bum. She doesn’t want to talk to someone she doesn’t know.

Clinton Kelly said Elizabeth Perkins is a “bitch” on Weeds. And she agreed. Perkins said her character was named one of the worst TV mothers once by People Magazine. But she said she is not like that in real life. She just plays a mean mother on TV. Elizabeth also said when she was in the movie Big, with Tom Hanks, he almost wasn’t her costar. She said when she signed on for the movie Robert de Niro was going to be playing the role of Josh, the young boy who makes the wish to become big. She said they never shot the alternate ending either, which would have been Perkins’ character shrunken down and turned into a child again.

She also talked about her diagnoses with type 1 diabetes. She said her entire life changed in 2005 when she was diagnosed. She said it changed the way she ate and cooked, among many other aspects of her life. She is now a part of an organization called Diabetes Co-Stars, an organization that helps build a support network for people with the disease.

On the show, Elizabeth wanted to make a Thanksgiving dish that would be vegetarian friendly so she went with her roasted vegetable medley recipe, which you can get below.

Ingredients

  • 1 Medium onion
  • 1 Sweet potato
  • 1 Parsnip
  • 2 Cups of brussels sprouts
  • 1 Granny Smith apple
  • 1 Pear
  • 1 Cup of tart cherries (pitted). Can use canned cherries.
  • Tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 Cup of olive oil
  • Tsp Rosemary
  • 2 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar
  • Béarnaise sauce

Instructions

  1. Chop the onion, sweet potato, parsnip, brussels sprouts, apple and pear into equal sizes, about a 1/4 inch think. Add the vegetables and fruit to the pan with oil and begin sautéing.
  2. After the vegetables and fruit have been softened up, about 5 minutes, add the cherries, the cinnamon, the rosemary and the balsamic. Saute a few minute longer until the flavors have blended and the vegetables and fruits are soft. Salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Transfer the medley into a slightly oiled casserole dish, or any other dish you can cook in the oven, and put in the oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown on top.
  4. Serve will béarnaise sauce.
