I started when I was 11.
00:06
I was an understudy in an offBroadway show called Ruthless.
00:10
That was my first thing I got.
00:11
And then the second thing I got was The Professional.
00:14
Oh wow. And I never got
00:15
commercials or anything like that.
00:17
I went out on auditions for it, but I never was hired.
00:20
[laughs]
00:21
I wasn't like a peppy kid.
00:23
I was always pretending to be older than I was,
00:25
and I feel like people liked seeing kids be their age.
00:29
You know, it's cute when a kid acts their age.
00:32
Not that I was mature, but I was pretending I was mature.
00:36
I definitely had a big Patrick Swayze crush as a kid.
00:41
And maybe as an adult, yeah.
00:43
I wanted to kiss Patrick Swayze, definitely.
00:47
Oh my God, My Girl.
00:49
My Girl made me cry so much
00:51
like balling when she's like,
00:54
"He can't see without his glasses," remember?
00:57
We were all so scared of bee stings after that.
00:59
Favorite birthday. My favorite birthday?
01:02
I feel like there was a Chuck E. Cheese birthday
01:04
that was particularly great.
01:07
Chuck E. Cheese is a great place.
01:09
I must, I don't know,
01:10
seven, something like that.
01:12
Yeah, and Carvel icecream cake.
01:14
Oh, it's the whale. Oh, it's the whale.
01:15
The whale, right.
01:16
Fudgie the Whale.
01:18
My pet peeve is people saying,
01:19
"I know exactly how you feel."
01:22
'Cause nobody knows exactly how you feel.
01:24
People say it a lot in general, yeah.
01:26
It comes from a good place,
01:27
but it's just something that's not true.
01:31
