The movie that sums me up best is Talladega Nights because I PLAY FOR KEEPS. Not really, I just play for funsies.
Where I go when I need to laugh: ArtFails.com because kids are so freaking awesome and hilarious, especially when they don’t mean to be.
Humor is … the biggest middle finger to the bad things that want to make you sad and therefore, the ultimate form of optimism.
The actor I’d want to play me in the movie of my life is: Sir Ian McKellen because Gandalf. I actually have no idea, somebody awesome with a slightly smaller ass than me. That would be great.
The moment when I laughed my hardest: About a year after the most embarrassing moment of my life (it involved morning sickness and a restaurant bathroom), when I tried to describe it to someone and I realized it was really, really funny.
I can’t live without … my three little terror suspects. Or my husband who is neither suspect not terror-ish.
My spirit animal: The mini-donkey. Yes, I am a mini-donk.
The one piece of advice I’d give to a new parent: There will be days that will suck and you’ll feel like you’re losing your schmidt and ruining your awesome, amazing kids because you don’t know what the hell you’re doing. It’s not just you. It’s everybody, I promise. Even Paltrow. You’re doing fine, trust me. And every day you get to start over.
My favorite Disney movie: Meet the Robinsons.
My hidden talent: I can make Chinese spring rolls and dumplings that are so good you will want to lick my face.
The one word that best describes me: Meep.
