In an Instagram video, she shared her experience in the gym when she saw a woman who looked fabulous without a shirt. But the actress recollected herself in an instant.
“I just left the gym, and as most people know I take my shirt off when I go to the gym. I had my shirt off and this lady walks in and she […] looked great with her shirt off. So immediately I’m like, ‘Oh no.’ I started to lose my confidence.”
She was on the verge of putting back her shirt on when she realized that it was wrong; what she was doing was wrong!
“I realized I’m comparing myself to this woman, and I was like, ‘Why just two minutes ago I was feeling great and now I’m not?’ And I realized the reason I was feeling so great was because I was comparing myself to yesterday’s Danielle. And today’s Danielle is better than yesterday’s. That’s why I felt so good. Ladies, don’t compare yourself to nobody. Just be a better you.”

"I don't want to be limited because of my size,I want to be the love interest. I want to wear makeup, I want to put on heels and put on my Spanx and look fabulous and have some man be doting over me. I want to be in a thriller movie. I want to be in an action movie. I can run up, stuff! I don’t want people to feel that I can’t do things or I’m not attractive because of that — that’s what I want to see.”

In 2014, Danielle shared a funny story related to her family and her role in the show ‘Orange is the New Black.’ She revealed that her parents were totally against her taking part because it supposedly had nude scenes.
“From day one! I had to be topless in a scene with Taylor [Schilling] in the shower, and I didn’t know how much they were gonna show of my ta-tas. So when that happened, that was the first thing, I was like, ‘Parents, look, Mom, Dad, yo, I think I might have to do this. I told them, and they were like, ‘No! No!’ They’re going to hate me for saying that, but they did.”
That time, she even thought of dropping the role,
“To be honest I didn’t know Orange was going to be one of those dream jobs, I almost turned it down in the beginning because there was possibility for nudity.”
