To work with Madonna. I’d like to be the first person she directs….in anything.

What helps you get out of bed in the morning?:
Hot cup of coffee with lots of cream and sugar. Mornings are my favorite time of day. I like being up before everyone else. Watching the world wake up. It’s beautiful.

Who was your celebrity crush growing up?
Corey Haim (ha, ha, I know!)

Are there any activities you do to make you feel un-famous?
Me? Famous? Ha ha ha. Well if I was actually famous I think cleaning out the litter box knocks you down to earth right quick!

What’s more dangerous: a mountain lion or a bitter ex?
They got nothing on me! I can handle both of those. It’s the bitter actresses that are a challenge.

Spike Lee. I would love to pick his brain.

My new Blackberry. I should have never upgraded. I miss my old one!
