Anna Chlumsky became famous virtually overnight at the age of 10, when she starred in the 1991 hit My Girl opposite Macaulay Culkin. And then, a few years later, she disappeared. She left acting completely and decided to become something else: an utterly normal college student, who set off on an utterly normal career. Anna tells Alex about that time in her life, about her eventual return to acting, and about playing Amy Brookheimer on the HBO show Veep. She’s earned five Emmy nominations in that role.
Actress Anna Chlumsky joins John to talk about the food writing career that didn't stick, rediscovering the passion for acting, hitting actor rock bottom, finding her way back to the stage, and her work in VEEP.
Everyone knows that VEEP star Anna Chlumsky is charming and impressive. You might not know, however, that she is also a Star Wars super nerd, a Belgian beer connoisseur, and is extremely well-informed about digestive health. Anna shares all this and more when she joins Anna and Sim in this week's episode. Listen in as both Annas and Sim talk about male vs. female gold-diggers, weird pregnancy cravings, and the importance of following one's instincts. They also play a hilarious new game: Politician or Real Housewife? Finally, the girls try to help a pregnant woman figure out how to handle her judgmental and competitive mom friends.
