The actress and Apothic Rose spokeswoman shares her entertaining secrets, how she became a social media sensation, and why kicking ass must be part of her job.
On why she's thrilled to be wearing heels: "Today is my first day not wearing a boot. I broke my toes when my boyfriend picked me up to give me a kiss, and he let me go unexpectedly. It's my third boot in four years. Before, I ran into a wall. Another time, I hit a doorframe. Usually I'm moving too quickly. My body's still doing the last thing and I'm onto the next thing. I've shut my head in the car door. It's really embarrassing and it hurts."
On her next movie, Rise of the Lonestar Ranger: "I've always wanted to be the kick-ass, guy gunslinger, and unfortunately I had to be the saloon lady. But I did get to stab somebody in the leg, so that was cool. At least I got to kick some ass. It's like a prerequisite for me. I have to kick some ass on some level."
On what she serves guests: "I cook only pastas and cakes, so it's pretty much exclusively carbs if you're coming to my house. I grew up in Italy eating pasta — I probably eat it four to five times a week. I don't like canned sauce, and the key to mine is putting in a balance of red wine and sugar. I also love aglio e ollo, garlic and olive oil, really simple. Pasta and a glass of wine is the best thing ever."
On how she drives her friends crazy: "At parties, we play a lot of Catch Phrase!, which is really hard. As you continue drinking, it gets harder. I'm really aggressive with games — I'm kind of not that fun to play with. I get super-competitive, and I have my friends going, 'it's just a game. Relax.' I'm the annoying one."
On her secret to a great party: "Always have wine. Always have social lubrication, my friend."
On her Tumblr's Webby nomination for Best Celebrity/Fan Website: "There's no way I'm going to win. It's me up against all these huge companies. I'm David and they're all Goliaths. I've sent out one tweet about it because it seems self-aggrandizing to be like, 'vote for me.' I get embarrassed about that stuff."
