On McKinney’s list of new year’s resolutions and arguably the most important one, is figuring out how to get there. “I think until I can love and admire myself, it’s hard to do good work or be the best person because you have to genuinely like who you are,” she says. “It’s definitely something I’m working on and don’t have all the answers to, but I’m trying.”
2020 already looks bright for the model and actress. Before “Fantasy Island” lands theaters on Valentine’s Day, McKinney takes the screen in a larger role in the indie comedy, “The Argument,” which sounds more in line with the direction she wants to take her career.
“I’m always cast as the chick in the bathing suit,” she says. “So I think my goal for the next couple of years is getting away from that. I have to be grateful for everything, but I’m excited for new projects and people to see me in a different way."
