1. A badass is afraid.
You know those moments when you're uncomfortable? That's where the magic happens. Once you're slightly out of your comfort zone and challenging yourself to grow professionally, you can feel change happening. (You might also feel sick to your stomach, but that will pass — most of the time.)
6. A badass has killer lip gloss and shoes — and she's not afraid to admit it.
Sure, that might sound silly, but sometimes feeling pretty makes us all feel better, and I think that's badass. Whether I'm filming in the woods at night, the beach on a 100-degree day, or a military base in the dead of winter, I march into my on-set battle wearing my favorite boots (no open-toed shoes allowed!) with a perfect shade of gloss in my pocket.
