You know that I love Jenna Fischer. I do so for a number of reasons. One of the main reasons though is that she doesn't take any crap from anyone, and is funny as hell. Plus of course she is willing to be in Playboy. No, not naked. I wish. No, she does the Playboy interview this month and talks smack and names names.
In her own words.
“I had been living in Los Angeles for about a year and was a member of a theatre company. One night, after a play, I went to a party and ran into the playwright.
“He said, 'What's your story?' I said, 'I'm from St. Louis. I just got here, I want to be an actress.' He said, 'I'm writing a film, and I think you'd be great for it. But I have a question for you – would you ever do a raunchy sex scene in a movie? Like really raunchy, with nudity?' “I kind of laughed and said, 'Well, I wouldn't do anything I wouldn't be proud to show my parents.' And he said, 'Well, you're not a real actress, then.' I was stunned.
“He said, 'A real actress would say yes. A real actress would p**s herself onstage if that's what it took. Sylvester Stallone did porn (1970's pre-fame The Party At Kitty And Stud's, later retitled The Italian Stallion). Shelley Winters p**sed herself onstage.
“'Every play, every movie I write has nudity in it. You know why? Because that's how I know if I'm working with real actors. You're not a real actress.
You should just go home. You don't have what it takes.' “I went home and cried and cried and cried. What an a**hole, I should have told him, 'How about I p**s on your face? Does that make me a real actress? Let's try that. I'll do that right here. I'll do that today.' Bring me Shem Bitterman”.
Now, most actors and actresses would have stopped before they named names. They would not want to burn any bridges. Not Jenna. If you mess with her she will mess with you back.
P.S. For those of you who keep writing to her MySpace page asking her out because she is single now. (kind of) She thinks you are nuts. She has shown that she will in fact piss on your face, so be careful.
