I’m a jewelry girl. I became with friends with designer Irene Neuwirth a few years ago. At that point I just used to wear my wedding rings. Very low key. Now if I could I’d be draped from head to toe in her jewelry all the time. Everything she makes is beautiful.
Birdie is amazing and such an incredible child and I’m having such a great time being a mom but I still want to have a career and I still look forward to auditions and parts and when I don’t get them I’m disappointed.
After ‘Freaks and Geeks’ I dealt with several producers who wanted to cover up all my beauty marks every single mole on my body. They tried to cover them on my first two episodes of ‘Dawson’s Creek’ and it just looked ridiculous so I had to put my foot down. But it’s not something I’m insecure about.
I know so many people who actually just watch television on their computers now and don’t even really watch their TV anymore.
I like starting off the new year fresh. I’m excited to see how 2013 turns out. Maybe because I’m an actress and I am always on a diet and fitness program but my New Year’s resolution is to let myself be nice to myself about my body.
And then I went to ‘Dawson’s Creek’ which is a show that was for better or for worse all about the language. It was a word-perfect show which I’d never had any experience with. And it was really shocking for me. I felt really hemmed in. At the time it wasn’t my favorite working experience.
My mother accidentally gave me food poisoning. She fed me baby carrots for a snack before Christmas dinner – but they had expired in June! I threw up for the next 24 hours.
I actually feel like for a lot of my career I wasn’t able to show my comedic range. I did a lot of dramas and dramedies. I was on ‘E.R.’ That’s not generally thought of as a funny show.
I never doubted that I would work and every time I went to an audition I went into the room with the knowledge that I was going to get the part. Ninety-nine times out of 100 I didn’t.
It’s interesting when people make comments about celebrities’ weight gain or lack of weight gain as if they’re a medical professional that’s treating that celebrity. Like ‘This doctor does not treat Jessica Simpson but thinks her weight is unhealthy.’ If you don’t treat her then how do you know?
