Ballet is an incredibly difficult, beautiful art form that takes a lot of training, a lot of time, and a lot of hard work.
I think everybody has something that takes them away or makes them happier. To some people it's baseball or sports or knitting or the movies.
So I'm studying ballet every day and really training so people will see me as a ballet dancer, which no one's seen before.
I don't think of myself as a dancer. I think of myself as a singer-actress who moves really well.
I'm used to working hard. Theater can be very grueling, and that's all I've ever known. It's what I've done for 20 years, which is crazy.
I'd had the theater background for so long that I know that world inside out; I just didn't know the pace of how a TV set works, like how a show shoots.
I grew up sort of a geeky, tall kid, and I think I was always the one trying to make my friends laugh.
It's weird to have leisure - to have time off. I'm not used to it.
I'm single. I just moved to a new city. I'm sort of starting over. I'm in Los Angeles. I don't really know what my life is right now. It's not what I thought it'd be at 37, and I think a lot of people can relate to that.
And, as an adult, I tried skiing, and I ended up in tears.
Well, I was such a huge fan of Amy Sherman-Palladino and of 'Gilmore Girls.'
I only tweet about food and silly things, but it's really fascinating because I get a lot of response on Twitter, and I'm always looking at the type of people who write me on there, and it is such a variety.
I've done some TV and I've done a lot of theater, obviously, and the last character I played on Broadway was a very fast-talking broad. I'm used to learning material and words.
I loved New York, but I never quite felt like New York was my home either.
I think Amy Sherman-Palladino has a very specific voice; it's unlike anyone else on television.
