After approaching telling Cox and telling her that she was on her 2023 vision board, Dylan received some motherly advice from the trans icon.

“It’s insane that you’re documenting so much of your life,” the Orange Is The New Black star remarked after saying how “lovely” it was that she was on Mulvaney’s vision board.

“Make sure you keep things for yourself. Everything cannot be for the public. They love it, but everything cannot be for them.”
