YOU DON'T HAVE KIDS, BUT YOU RAISE THEM ONSCREEN. WHAT'S THE MOST DOMESTIC THING ABOUT YOU?
I make butterscotch brownies. It's my aunt Kathy's recipe. It's a family secret.
IN GENIUS, YOU PLAY A HARRIED MOM OF SIX. COULD YOU PULL A CAROL BRADY IN REAL LIFE?
I could! As long as their moms came and got them at the end of the day!
HAVE YOUR OWN PARENTS INFLUENCED YOU?
My dad was a single parent for a number of years. It was a difference to deal with, and it defines who I am today.
WAS HE A HIP, GILMORE GIRLS TYPE OF SINGLE PARENT?
It's tough to parent through friendship. You have to command respect.
SOUNDS LIKE YOU WERE A HANDFUL.
I had a year where I got into lots of fender benders. I skipped a grade and drove not entirely legally because my friends let me drive their cars.
