London: `One Tree Hill` actress Sophia Bush says she is inspired by pop star Beyonce Knowles, who has taught her to be more "confident."

The 31-year-old actress revealed that the artist has also taught her to love herself, reportedly.

"Beyonce convinced me to do my Maxim cover. I was like, `I am a grown woman and I can do whatever I want!` I was like, `Hey, I`m allowed to feel comfortable in my own skin. I`m allowed to push the envelope," Sophia said.

"I`m allowed to have the conversations with the women who are in my audience that no one wants to talk about," the actress said," she added.
