Beanie is best known for her movies Booksmart, Ladybird and How to Build a Girl, her role on Broadway in Hello, Dolly!, and her upcoming role as Monica Lewinsky in the third season of American Crime Story. She is purposeful about the parts she chooses, and makes it a point to choose roles with empowering messages. 

“I think we owe it to ourselves as a society to start telling really loving stories, and redemptive, positive, triumphant stories.”

Beanie has been proud to be part of stories that celebrate female friendship, and is reminded that she’s a changemaker every time two friends run up to her and tell her how much her movies have meant to them.

“More stories need to be told by people who haven’t been able to tell their stories before.”
