In the press, I like to be known for my work and not for whom I’m dating or what my favorite ice cream is.

[on awards season] A strange thing happens this time of year. It starts to feel like it’s a race. Acting is very different than playing tennis. You don’t put two people in a room and we match it out. For me, I feel like I’ve already won. I never want to lose sight of what I feel right now being in this business and being nominated.

You know when you’ve worked so hard for something? And you finally get a taste of it? That’s how I felt last year. Like: oh my gosh, I’m an actress getting to the point where [Zero Dark Thirty (2012) director] Kathryn Bigelow will call me on my cell phone. You…

Comedy Festival Testimonial – March 5 2019

I was completely thrilled. The audience took so much from my story that I hadn’t considered, likening it to ‘David and Goliath’ and The Pink Panther. I was also so excited to see that they understood the message I wanted to communicate and the tone of the film, showing me that I had succeeded in the parts of the film I’d thought I hadn’t.

AUDIENCE FEEDBACK VIDEO. Moderated by Matthew Toffolo:

 

Comedy Festival Testimonial – February 25 2019

Awesome, thank you so much! Very clear, artistic, raunchy, (and the most pleasant surprise), youthfully appealing. I didn’t see that coming. It’s a real eye-grabber and conversation starter. Well done. The progressive script is not for everyone. The film short is not for everyone. Good! Screw’em. I like it a lot. I hope you enjoyed the project and the process as well. Please thank all your staff.
