Interesting fact about yourself that people wouldn’t expect?
I was, and still am in a way, a musical theater kid. My grandfather put me onto movie musicals and I started performing pretty early on.

Favorite place in the world and why?
Any movie theater, any time of day. It’s my school, my church, my pub, my home.

Your most treasured possession?
I like my body. It gets me where I need to be.

What was the last movie, TV show or book that made you cry or tear up?
Look, I cry at the drop of hat. I think the first time I cried was when I saw E.T. at age 3 and I’ve been a bawler ever since. Books, movies, music, tv shows; keeping up with all the things I’ve cried over would be a monumental task. There is a really great podcast called Crybabies, where people discuss the ephemera that’s made them weepy. It’s my kind of show.

What would your superpower be?
The ability to turn my brain on and off at will. I really need that.

What is your most unappealing habit?
Worrying about being right all the time is an unhealthy one when it comes to relationships with others. The one that I tend to feel badly about, yet others are dismissive of lately, is road rage. I live in L.A., so of course I have road rage.
