About Funny Bone

ever have one of those days?

ever have one of those days?

This entire blog thing is so
NOT MY IDEA.

My agent Josh heads the ‘up and coming artist’ division and came up with this to promote my first movie (ironic, considering the current “issues”) and had his assistant JA make it.

He wants me to write about funny Hollywood stories, about being an actress, about what it’s like to be the rising star, (ha ha funny / NOT.)

Right now it doesn’t feel like me at all, but I promised to at least give  it a chance.  (I guess if this is gonna be about me, I’ll have to take charge.) The most personal I want to get out in public is maybe about “Funny Bone” — it’s my dad’s nickname for me from way back.

But doing this About Evie page is impossible! I’m sorry but– well, how lame is to write about myself?

Obvi.

So I got the people in my life to tweet or text their “about” me to JA instead. (Thanks JA, you’re so great to deal with this.)

I asked them to keep it real, so here’s what came in…

No comment.”

Dr. Do Right is so paranoid!


A little more minimalistic than I was going for, gentlemen!

First of all, what about the fact that I’ve been a creative thinker since I was like– four?

And no one mentioned that I love being an actress, I’m so addicted to La Scala chopped salads I could eat them every night if I lived closer, that I’m a Pisces, or that Dad’s been Mr. Mom  since…

And what about stories from my career as an actress? From my first part as Nickelodeon’s “Nurse Nancy” to the psycho on “Greys” to that great SNL guest spot… (is it weird that even when most of my roles are dramas, I tend to make people laugh?)

So: “about Evie”?  That’s only about right.
For now —

PS: thought for the day: funny is out there, you just need to find it. (Like that’s so easy!)
