Keke Palmer has made a shocking revelation about her retirement plans from Hollywood, hinting that it’s “around the corner.”
“I don’t know. I think the timer has started,” the 30-year-old actress replied when asked about her retirement plans during her interview with Teen Vogue.
She added with a laugh, “I think it’s because I just haven’t felt it yet. But the timer, I know that it’s around the corner. I don’t know when exactly, but it’s around the corner.”
Speaking about the legacy she wants to leave behind after quitting Hollywood, Keke said, “The main thing I want those legacies to be is [a call] to use your power for good, to use what you have to create spaces and systems for other people to thrive.”
“I just don’t believe in holding everything. I don’t believe in gatekeeping. I’m not a coward. What would that do? I think it’s based in fear. If I’m speaking on it from a compassionate place, I think people who gatekeep are afraid. So I’m not scared,” she admitted.
The Hustlers actress continued, “A part of learning in this place, I think, is to love and to know how to first be unconditionally loving to yourself, so that you know how to love others and be of service to others in a way that doesn’t disadvantage them but instead empowers them.”
“That’s what I would hope that the legacy is for me. And for anyone that wants to follow me, I hope that’s what they see too,” she explained.
For those unversed, Keke recently won the 2023 Emmy for ‘outstanding host’ for the game show ‘Password,’ becoming the first woman to receive the honor in 15 years.
