“The role wasn’t written as a woman of color, and when I auditioned, I read against women of every ethnic background. Tyler’s character eventually realizes that she still has feelings for an old flame, and breaks up with Ross, thus exiting the show.
This was in season 9, when they had already had several very high-profile guest actors on the show, including Brad Pitt, Reese Witherspoon, Tom Selleck, and Bruce Willis. I think they were very aware that it could be an intimidating set, and they made a special effort to be kind and open towards me when I arrived.
The night of my very first live performance in front of a studio audience, as the cast came together at the end of the taping to take a bow in front of the crowd, Matthew Perry made a point of saying to me as a quiet aside, “Get ready for your life to change,” and it did! He may have said that to every guest actor, I don’t know, but it was a special moment for me, and a seminal memory of my time there.
The role wasn’t written as a woman of color, and when I auditioned, I read against women of every ethnic background. If you think about it, right after Friends, a show like The Wire became a hugely influential hit, and now we have incredibly diverse casts like The Walking Dead and How to Get Away with Murder, where the shows just look like America, and sometimes issues of race come up, and sometimes they don’t.
I think ideal storytelling shows individuals in their specific complexity, and doesn’t always lead with how race defines them. People of color are as heroic and flawed as the next person; we need stories that break the myth of the racial monolith.
My experience has been incredible; originally I was only supposed to appear in six episodes of that show , coming on as a guest star. Cook is going to direct this year, and I'm really excited to support her.
It was a very aggressive process, because I was on The Talk and doing about four shows at the time, so I only had about a week off to make a movie ... I'm getting ready to direct another feature at beginning of next year, and it's also a thriller, and now I have a little more money, and a little more time, but still the approach and the kind of lean strategy that I brought to making AXIS, I'm bringing to this movie and trying to maximize my money.
I would experience these great drinks at restaurants and when I come home and I want to recreate them, it was like a hobby at first. Then, I started to think I'd get home late at night on a weeknight, and I’d go out and have one nice drink and I didn’t want to go through the trouble with making it ...
Titles, an attorney, filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences, in Los Angeles Superior Court earlier this month, according to TMZ. The couple separated in January 2015, but it’s unclear what caused the marriage to implode.
Tyler underwent numerous methods in an attempt to improve her chances, but none helped. Only good things, argues TV host and author Aisha Tyler.
Not because he lost his job in Congress after he tweeted photos of his boxer-clad erection to women who were not his wife, and not because he may lose his bid for mayor of New York City after tweeting photos of his boxer- free erection to other women who were also not his wife1. Not because he has an overinflated sense of his sex appeal, an even more overinflated sense of the appeal of his junk, and the world's worst impulse control.
Even adorable pokes like Justin Bieber and Michael Phelps know that the most “private” homes aren't safe; everyone's your best friend till they get a pic of you smoking a bong. And no more trysts in dark restaurants, where every diner with an iPhone is a potential filmmaker, ready to make you famous.
A Massachusetts Institute of Technology dean of admissions got her digital desserts when she added three totally nonexistent college degrees to her résumé; MIT officials unearthed the truth, then threw her off campus like a drunken frat boy. And urban lore has it that a New York man busted his cheating wife by installing the Find My Friends app on her iPhone.
This is a bitter pill to swallow; personally, I have a policy of complete honesty, but honestly? And being committed to kindness and candor puts my conscience in turmoil.
Should I tell a friend her pants make her look like 12 pounds of pudding in a five-pound bag? And scores of us have lied about how many guys we've bedded5 or tweaked the truth on a résumé.
The incredible technology that's given us the power to curate our personal brands and create Pinterest alter egos whose lives are all dreamy road trips has also given others the power to strip our facades bare, replacing that smart snap of us in a suit toasting a corporate victory with one of us woozily flashing our boobs on spring break. Now, many of you may be smugly imagining a world free of two-timing boyfriends and dirty-dog spouses.
But while it may feel like guys are doing all the bad stuff, women stray almost as much as men: 19 percent of us cheat on our partners, compared with 23 percent of men. Just hope your boss doesn't stumble across your LinkedIn profile and see your claim to have supervised a project when you were actually printing PowerPoint decks and fetching coffee7.
But for those who do persist in cheating, stealing, and manipulating without compunction or regret, your day of reckoning is at hand. Just admit to a future employer that you left college to bum around Europe with an Italian trumpet player.
Explain what you learned about yourself, or just admit it was an insanely good time. There, then, was Water's most grievous mistake: not the cheating, not the tweeting, not even betraying his wife.
