Jenna Fischer Topics
Women need to band together and change the message about post-birth weight loss expectations. IT TAKES A YEAR or more! AND THAT'S OKAY!
Baby is napping and I am now reluctantly and angrily working out. Argh. Why can't I get muscles from watching TV!?!?
I'm not prepared for a zombie apocalypse. I need more bottled water, shotgun & stronger abs. I have plenty of canned food.
Don't forget to put your kitchen sponge in the microwave for 10 seconds or run through the dishwasher to kill bacteria.
While trying to decide between a workout and a nap, my daily dilemma, my son woke up and made the decision for me.
There's a small part of me that loves filing, organizing and spreadsheets.
I just LOVE to watch TV. I wish I could say something really impressive like I love to read or hike but the truth is that most of the time I'm just sacked out on the couch watching shows or DVDs.
I have a BlackBerry. People always see me typing with my thumbs. Definitely an addict of the BlackBerry. You can't always take a phone call when you're on the set, but you can look down and read a little message. But you can't write anything too intimate when you have to type with your thumbs, I find.
I had this crazy job, though, when I first got to Los Angeles...I answered this ad in the back of the newspaper to be a telephone psychic, and I did that for two days. I called up this guy, and...this is how hard it was to get this job: He said, 'So, uh, do you feel intuitive from time to time?' And I was like, 'Yea, sure, I feel intuitive.' He said, 'Do you read Tarot cards?' And I said, 'I DO!' and I didn't.
You know, I tried to get on Dancing with the Stars, and they wouldn't take me. True story! I shot the first season of The Office, and I thought, 'The show's going to get cancelled, and I have to milk every opportunity I can.' My manager called, my agent called, but they didn't bite.
I had real potential. But my goal was to be...adequate. I didn't want to be an extraordinary receptionist, because I didn't ever want to be promoted, or be given more work. My time was really valuable to me. For example, I could type 80 words per minute, but I wouldn't tell people that, so when my boss would give me work, he would think it'd take two hours, but it would really only take about thirty minutes. So I'd have, like, ninety minutes of fun time. I got it all done, I just did it...real slow.
I wouldn't be where I am today if not for my husband James Gunn. He is the one who convinced me to quit my job as a secretary ironically and focus full-time on acting. I didn't totally believe I could make it, but he did. He supported us financially and supported me emotionally. He ran lines with me and coached me before countless auditions. He put up with my highs and lows. He was, and still is, my biggest cheerleader. And you need that out here.
Honestly it would be great to get to play Pam for a long, long time. I don't have real big aspirations to be a movie star. I would love to be on a long-running hit TV show. You end up playing a defining role.
My favorite on-screen moment has to be when John and I filmed our dinner scene on the roof during 'The Client.' There was a very small crew up on the roof and they had the cameras really far away. There was a warm breeze and Rainn and Brian were off in the distance setting off really lame fireworks. The whole thing just felt magical. I also love anytime I get to do a party planning scene. Angela, Phyllis and Kate are all so funny. We laugh a lot during those scenes. They are so subtle and passive/aggressive. I love it! My favorite off-screen moment is probably our weekly viewing parties. We have such a great time watching the show together. We cheer for the writer and congratulate cast members for particularly funny bits in the show. Oh, runner-up for best off-screen moment would be how much John made us all laugh when we were filming 'The Fire.' We had to stand outside in the heat for hours but he made us laugh by doing imitations of Angela getting carried away by a giant bug. It was pretty great.
Television and movies are so different. TV has a real routine to it and movies are sort of like short-lived projects where it's sort of like a blitz.
Let me please stand in solidarity with all of the women who are not a size 2 six weeks after leaving the hospital. I thought, you read all of the stuff in magazines like, Oh, I breastfed my baby and I am so skinny now. I am breast-feeding my baby and I am not getting any skinnier! I think Im just going to be a little bit bigger for a little bit longer and thats fine with me.
I love improvisation because I like to be able to contribute creatively a little bit more than just memorizing my lines. But I actually like absorbing improv from other actors more than I like trying to come up with the clever thing myself.
My husband got the dog, and I got the cat. But the dog and cat miss each other, so we must have a sleepover one of these days.
I would go gay for Kate Winslet. I saw her across the room at a party once. She is the sexiest woman on the planet!
I think I'm a polite person and I have those kind of midwestern values. I send out elaborate Christmas cards, and in that way I imagine I'm a little like Pam
I Dont Give A Fuck
