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