We Got ‘Insecure’ Star Kendrick Sampson to Tell Us All About His Bed Game

The list of things you might know him from is long: The Vampire Diaries, How to Get Away With Murder, The Flash, his racial-justice activist work, etc., etc. And before we all sob over the fact that Insecure (which he also stars in bc truly he’s ev-er-y-where) is almost over, I asked Kendrick some questions about, um, his bed.

Let’s start off easy: Where are you?

In my office in L.A. I just moved in, so there’s a desk, a printer, a card table, and a big, humongous meditation pillow.

Sounds so relaxing! Other than meditating, what do you do for self-care?

I do my best to get a little sun, for my melanin and vitamin D. I drink plenty of water. I work out. I try to do one thing for myself every week, just for me. The last thing I did was get a massage. I stay in touch with my close radical activist community that I love so much, and I go to therapy once a week.

Okay, wow, it is impressive that you do so much to care for yourself.

I was forced to. Otherwise, like the Marvin Sapp song says, never would have made it.

I’m betting your bed game is fantastic too. Like…coziness-wise, I mean.

I love a heavy comforter, sometimes to my own detriment because I’ll be sweating. I like to block out the sun, so I have blackout curtains. I just like it to be dark. And I love a lot of pillows.

Amazing—most guys I know don’t understand the value of a decorative pillow.

If the pillows are too nice, I feel like I’m messing something up, like I’m damaging something. So I just get a bunch of them and try to put the fancy ones away. Between my bed and the guest bed, I probably have over 20 pillows.

You definitely win the award for comfiest home. Pencil me in for a cuddle, pls.
