My favorite toy growing up was a volleyball.
00:02
I don't know if Bella knows this,
00:03
'cause I usually did it when she wasn't home,
00:04
but the wall that I used
00:06
was a wall that had a door to Bella's room
00:09
coming out of it,
00:10
and I just used to throw the ball
00:12
and do my approach
00:13
and slam it against the wall for hours
00:15
and hours and hours and hours by myself.
00:18
I always had swollen tonsils.
00:20
Like, I could go to the nurse,
00:22
at any time of the day
00:24
and be like, I don't feel good,
00:25
my tonsils hurt.
00:26
And they always thought I was sick
00:27
and then I would just play volleyball on Bella's door.
00:30
[laughing]
00:31
All day.
00:37
If I had a superpower, I would want it to be teleportation,
00:41
because yesterday I was shooting in Brazil
00:43
and this morning I'm shooting in New York,
00:46
and I could've just snapped my fingers
00:48
and been right here
00:49
instead of getting on a plane [laughs].
00:51
I would like to be invisible.
00:53
I think that, something that I think about a lot,
00:56
is I kind of took for granted invisibility.
00:59
Like, when I moved to New York,
01:00
I loved walking down the street,
01:02
and sometimes I think about wearing wigs,
01:04
but then I don't wanna be seen in a pink wig
01:06
and for people to be like, oh my god, she's going insane.
01:08
[laughing]
01:09
I was a horseback rider,
01:11
so I loved Olympic horses.
01:13
Like, I had horse posters on my wall.
01:15
And when I was a kid, I listened to Josh Groban
01:17
and Michael Buble.
01:19
I loved that kind of music.
01:20
Andrea Bocelli.
01:22
I don't think I had posters of them,
01:23
but oh, I had a Kobe poster, for sure
01:25
and I think I had a Kobe trashcan, too.
01:27
I had a little basketball hoop on my door.
01:30
I used to go play basketball with the boys at lunch,
01:33
'cause I realized that's a really good way
01:34
to hang out with boys.
01:36
I was good at basketball,
01:37
but volleyball was what I really had a passion for.
01:39
My favorite Halloween costume was a couple years ago.
01:43
I was Sandy from Grease.
01:45
I was dirty Sandy
01:47
and I had a little unlit cigarette in my mouth
01:49
walking down the red carpet
01:50
and I felt really badass.
01:51
[laughing]
01:53
But yeah, it was really fun
01:55
and I did all the curly but teased hair
01:58
and the red lip
01:59
and the smokey cat eye.
02:01
It was pretty good.
02:03
I loved calling my mom from friend's houses
02:05
and like remembering her number
02:06
and stuff.
02:07
I probably just emailed my mom.
02:08
Ponypall1100@hotmail or something.
02:13
[Lynn] Ponypal?
02:14
Ponypal, 'cause I was a horseback rider.
02:16
Loved ponies.
02:18
I don't think cooking can be my secret skill,
02:19
'cause I was on MasterChef
02:21
and I won.
02:22
Thanks for knowing that.
02:23
I was in the fashion section
02:25
and I just knew that if I did a burger
02:27
and I did it really well
02:29
and I impressed Gordon Ramsay, who's the King of Burgers,
02:31
that I would win.
02:33
So I'm also a burger connoisseur,
02:35
and I knew I could impress him.
02:39
My first memory,
02:41
and I guess this comes from a picture,
02:42
you know, you always say like,
02:43
do you remember this because it's a picture
02:44
or do you remember this because you actually remember it?
02:46
My dad has a picture of him cooking
02:49
and, as a joke, he put me in a massive cooking pan,
02:55
like a big one,
02:56
and then he put different vegetables coming out
02:58
so it looked like I was being broiled as a soup.
03:01
My favorite holiday memory is always in the kitchen
03:05
cooking with my family.
03:06
We all like to do a different dish.
03:08
During Christmas, I would always do a crazy dessert buffet,
03:12
where I would make trains out of candy and cupcakes
03:16
and little snowman cupcakes
03:18
and all these different things,
03:18
and we love waking up, going to the tree,
03:21
sitting together opening presents.
03:22
We all are note writers in my family,
03:25
so Christmas morning ends up being
03:27
not when we take the picture,
03:29
like, it's not cute, 'cause we're all crying
03:31
because we're all reading each other's notes
03:32
and we're all blubbery
03:34
and so then we go get ourselves together,
03:36
then we do a little Christmas pic.
03:38
Let me see.
03:39
Angel was my cat.
03:41
[Lynn] And what street did you grow up on?
03:42
East Valley.
03:44
Angel East Valley is my porno name.
03:46
Thanks, Lynn.
03:48
[laughing]
03:49
Good to know.
03:50
I'm cool with spiders
03:52
and heights and clowns and stuff,
03:54
I'm all good with that.
03:55
I don't like getting out of the shower
03:57
and for the toilet seat to be open.
04:00
I just got out of the shower,
04:01
I have water on me
04:02
and then the toilet also has water in it
04:04
and like, you know.
04:06
I like to close the toilet seat before I take a shower.
04:08
Now you're gonna look at it
04:09
and now it's gonna make you feel weird.
04:11
Watch.
04:11
I have something to tell you.
04:13
I'm really bad at opening champagne
04:14
and wine bottles,
04:16
and I have these tips on my nails.
04:18
Hold on, let me see if I can do it,
04:19
'cause it's like a little twisty one.
04:20
Maybe they're not gonna be that bad.
04:21
[popping]
04:22
[Lynn] Yay!
04:24
Fantastic!
04:25
Loved it! I think I got more scared
04:27
and now I'm excited,
04:28
but I was scared first.
04:29
[laughing]
