On Her Breast Implants
“I was always a negative-A cup, so when I was 30, I was getting a divorce [she was married to Ben Indra for four years], I had just finished House Bunny, and I’d sold another movie, all of these new things were happening to me, so I got my breasts done. It was fucking awesome. I never, ever thought I’d do something like that. I always thought plastic surgery was caving in to ‘the man,’ you know? But it came down to a really simple thing: I wanted to fill out a bikini. What would that feel like? I’m still floored that I did it, because I am a staunch feminist. I kept thinking, Am I betraying my own gender by doing this? I wish that we were more supportive of each other. I think that people should be able to do whatever they want, whether it’s getting braces, bleaching their hair, getting extensions, getting a boob job, getting vaginal surgery, or getting a nose job.”
On The Biggest Perk Of Pregnancy
“When I was pregnant, I gained 70 pounds! I wish it was all in my belly, but it was on my arms, my thighs, my ass. I remember at the time thinking, This is incredible. I’d never enjoyed food more and I didn’t care. My vanity was completely tidal-waved by the need to just nourish this thing. Nothing was going to stop me! Finally, my doctor was like, ‘Okay, you’re, uh, gaining at a pretty rapid pace.’ Well, yeah! For the first time in a long time, I had absolutely zero concern about my weight. It felt really good.”
On Accidentally Staying In Shape
“I’ve never worked on a show where I lost weight, except for Mom. I run up and down stairs 30 or 40 times a day from the set to my dressing room, I’m doing this podcast, I’ve got a 5-year-old. I feel so busy; I don’t have a ton of time to indulge in foods I love, like a cheeseburger and fries, with mayonnaise, my favorite condiment. Food’s more of an efficiency thing. When I do get a chance to eat something fabulous or make something fabulous, I love and cherish it.”
Her Dream Podcast Guest
“Michelle Obama, of course. Then all of the great comedians I admire, like Kristen Wiig, Cecily Strong, Amy Schumer, Melissa McCarthy.”
On Still Believing In New Love
“I love love! Like all of us, I need a sense of human connection and intimacy. At the end of a workday I feel exposed and kind of raw. I want to be with someone I can confess to, and who can confess to me.”
On Chris And Co-Parenting Jack
“What Chris and I try to do is to communicate openly. We reiterate that there aren’t rules to this. We have a lot of love and friendship, and our big goal is to protect Jack. I cherish my family, my close friends, my child — that makes the rest of it worth it.”
