I pick on Chicken Little. It's always fun to play the mean one. I send Goosey Lucy to do my dirty work.
Work conditions in the voice-recording studio: I was alone. And I was naked, actually.
Entertaining tips: I'm working on a hospitality book. I just put myself in different situations and thought, how would I entertain? Like when you have a lumberjack over. Lumberjacks eat like grips on movie sets, where it's their last meal. They eat to live, and they use their bread for a spoon. It's amazing to watch.
Her sideline selling homemade cupcakes and cheeseballs:
My signature is a smoky Gouda and vanilla cupcakes. It's something to do at 2 a.m. And I like having money. I like having jars of money in my apartment. When the [New York City] blackout happened, I was prepared.
Costarring in Shrek 3: I got to do the voice of Cinderella at a baby shower. I don't think I've ever been at a baby shower. It was so girly. I was like, "Really? This is what they talk about at baby showers?"

We're all competing to be the best aunt or uncle. David calls himself Uncle Money , so no one can come close to that.
