Jennifer attended alongside director Rodrigo Garcia and actress Sarah Jones the YouTube Channels’ AwesomenessTV and WIGS TCA Panel at the Beverly Hilton on July 25th to promote Youtube’s channel WIGS.

Asked if day will come that appearing on a YouTube series is as desirable as working in TV, she said: “I think it’s so fascinating what’s happening — that we have this other platform for material that is incredibly intimate and it feels like you don’t have to wait for somebody’s permission to be creative,” Beals said. “You don’t have to wait for that magic, huge number in order to go tell a story. And I love that.” Via The Wrap

Jennifer Beals joins twitter

Jennifer surprisingly has joined twitter, even though she said she would never do, and tweeted today for the first time : “Hello world; I am finally joining the 21st century and am on twitter. Don’t faint -this is really me.”
She’s chosen a personal photo and a quote from one of her favorite authors Walt Whitman on her profile: Do I contradict myself? Very well, then I contradict myself, I am large, I contain multitudes.

We all of course welcome her to the 21st century :) . You can follow her tweets under her username @jenniferbeals
