GOSSIP NEWS >> Sophia Bush: Zooey Magazine Cover Girl!

She's become a fan favorite with her roles on projects such as "One Tree Hill," and Sophia Bush is looking fabulous on the cover of the July 2011 issue of Zooey.

The 28-year-old actress adorns the magazine's front page with grace, talking with the publication about topics such as her activist nature and doing the right thing.

With a behind the scenes video available for viewing pleasure above, highlights from Miss Bush's Zooey interview are as follows:

On her passion for activism on issues close to the heart:“It’s funny. As a kid, I asked my mom if I could start a beach clean up on Saturdays with my friends. She said, ‘Well, Sweetheart, I don’t think many six-year-olds are going to want to go to the beach and pick up trash on Saturday.’ But, I was very gung ho about the whole thing. Causes and social issues have always really registered with me.”

On making sure to always do the right thing: “I think I’ve always had a very clear idea of what’s right and wrong. And a very clear sense that we should always try to do the right thing, even when it’s not the easy thing. It’s something that I think baffled my parents at moments, but they’ve been really supportive, too. They’ve given me an excep tional education, from the time that I was a little girl.”
