I have a cat. But I love dogs. So. Both.

10. Best concert of your life was…?

The War of Art by Steven Pressfield. I learned this from Andrea Navedo and the cast of Jane the Virgin. They give a signed copy of this book to every guest on the show. They are such an incredible bunch of wonderful people and actors.

12. What’s the nicest thing anyone has ever done for you?

I have to say my parents for raising me. They’re so incredibly generous and patient and just total sweethearts.

13. South Park or Family Guy?


14. You have an entire day to do whatever you want. What would you do?

Happy brunch with my hubs and daughter and some friends or family, hike and chat with one of my besties, swim somewhere with the kiddo, eat a fancy dinner with friends, watch an amazing play / musical and then dance all night with friends. There’s enough time in a day for that, right?

Jaws, Hannah and her Sisters, Annie Hall, West Side Story, Annie, A Chorus Line, League of Their Own, Working Girl, Troop Beverly Hills, Inside Out, Birdman.

“Passionate” is a stretch, but I will say the All Blacks. Because I like a happy husband.

17. Where did you eat the best meal of your life?

I don’t remember the name of the restaurant! Can you believe that? It was in Sienna, and we walked by a crowded place filled with obviously locals and just told our waiter to bring whatever is best. And it was the best.

18. The last movie you saw in a theater?


19. Who was your first celebrity crush?

Jonathan Brandis. Rest in peace.

20. What would you cook if Nic Cage was coming to your house for dinner?

Not pork! I would ask my husband to cook (because he’s way better than me) a nice fresh vegetable pasta dish because it feels like Nic would like that.
