5 YEARS AGO ”I was sure my career was dead. I moved to L.A. to be with Bill [Macy]. I just couldn’t get work. I decided to give up and go to Marinello School of Beauty. I actually got an application. I was like, ‘I can’t take it! I just want to be a hairdresser!”’

NOW ”In ‘Out of Order,’ I play a woman in pain and crisis. On a superficial level, I was so happy to have something I didn’t have to be pretty and thin for. Two seconds in hair and makeup, and they’re like, ‘Wow, you look like s—!’ And I’m like, ‘Excellent, that’s the point!”’

5 YEARS FROM NOW ”I’d really love to be doing another cable series so I can spend time with my family. And I’d love to work with my husband. The more I work with William H. Macy, the better. And he’s hot. I’d like to do nude scenes with William H. Macy.”
