There was a time in L.A. when I drove to 7-Eleven to go grocery shopping and I locked my keys in my car which wasn’t insured. My wallet was in there and I couldn’t call AAA because I only had $7 in my bank account. It was one of those moments where I was like ‘O.K. I literally have nothing right now.’
I’m the one who’s dating the craft-service guy instead of the producer. Plus if a producer is going to date a hot young thing I’m probably not the first person on their list – the weird quirky funny girl.
I think that we’re in a really amazing time where there are really a lot of really fantastic female actresses and comedians. I imagine there’s just a lot of opportunity for women to have powerful roles. Or it’s just that there’s more women writing TV. Women tend to maybe write strong women.
I feel like in a lot of shows where the woman is in charge the woman is this ball buster and the guy is sort of weak and spineless. And that’s never been my experience in a relationship. I think it’s much more interesting that the guy is the boss. And there are stakes.
