I admire people who can step out on their own and work alone - that takes a lot of guts. But I'd rather have the camaraderie on and off camera of working as a part of a group.
I would say the biggest difference is that a movie is a shorter, more encapsulated experience, and a TV job is like having a regular day job where you get to do what you love.
As an actor, you want to push yourself.
I don't go around calling myself a fat girl. It doesn't feel fun to me.
There are varied experiences of overweight women throughout the country; there's not just one experience.
With movies, you get to be in a bubble while you're creating it, and it's not until it comes out that you see whether people like it or not.
All the characters I've ever played have really had nothing to do with looks. There's a lot of things that are a lot more interesting to me to play than that.
I can play a cat lady. I can't put my foot down and refuse to play anything but playing the perfect, well-adjusted woman, because those people aren't as fun or funny.
I'm never happier than when I'm part of an ensemble. The rhythm of working in a group and the dynamic of each individual relationship within that group coming together is such a special thing.
