With two movies in theatres and one more on the way, the busy actress-producer, 34, shares her tips for jugging lots of jobs.
STAY ON TARGET
I shot W., Zack and Miri Make a Porno and Role Models [out Nov. 7] in different places, so I spent lots of time in Target buying bedding and lamps, getting resettled every time.
TWO WEEKS IS TOO LONG
My husband [Max Handelman, 35] was producing [next year's sci-fi thriller] The Surrogates in Boston at the same time as all this. We try not to go more than two weeks without seeing each other, and we were pretty successful almost the entire time.
WHEN IN DOUBT, YOU CAN ALWAYS WORK IN PORNO
I had no hesitation about anything in Zack and Miri. If it doesn't scare you a little bit, then what's the point of doing it? If you're going to go, go big!
