I went to New York for the first time when I was in college for a school trip and, uh, it did not appeal to me. It was too much hustle and bustle.
Body-shaming is something I feel really strongly about. I think about my niece, I think about my friends who have daughters being on the Internet and reading these things, and it just makes me furious. It makes me so angry.
I did a lot of commercial and theater work when I got out of school and was living in Dallas, and I moved to Chicago to go through the Second City Conservatory Program.
I liked in television that you do some work, then you perform, then you stop and you have a break because they have to set up lights, and then you do some more work. I really liked the pace of it; it really agreed with me.
I've done some version of that Minnesota accent - that Midwestern accent - in sketch comedy for years. It's the quickest way to symbolize you're a mom.
As a newcomer, you know, you don't come out the gate as a singer and try to compare with Judy Garland.
At 32, I kind of thought I was past the point where I was gonna get a break that really changed my life overnight.
At Clements, I was an officer in Thespian Troupe No. 3689.
I did Internet dating for a while, and that is rife with horrible dating stories.
I don't have any phobias per se, but both tight and vast spaces tend to make me nervous after a prolonged time.
I don't think I have ever worn more outfits over the course of four days than I did Emmy weekend. You barely sleep. You don't eat.
I don't think you realize how often on television people are not like anyone we know or have known.
I grill, like, every day.
I guess my interest in performance has evolved and changed many times over the years.
I haven't been recognized out in public or anything. The strangeness of celebrity has been relegated to Twitter, which is kind of manageable.
