Alison Brie is on the cover of FASHION Magazine‘s August 2018 issue, hitting Canadian newsstands on July 9 and select U.S. Barnes & Noble stands on July 17.
Here’s what the 35-year-old Glow actress had to say…
On being overlooked and typecasted as a comedy actress: “If you need a headline, [this] would be the headline of my life: ‘There’s a Lot More Going on Than People Think.’ The biggest misconception across the board is that I’m a comedy actress, and it drives me crazy. Which is weird because I don’t want to begrudge that title in a way that implies I hate the genre. I don’t. I love it! But, to me, there’s more to me. There’s untapped resources you guys don’t even know about.”
On fighting for the role of Ruth on Glow: “I almost can’t even define why, but certain things you just read and you’re like, this is my role. Maybe it came from having felt slightly misunderstood in my career—although I still sort of feel that way everywhere outside of Glow—but I just had this drive to fight for this character, and I knew exactly what I wanted to do with her.”
On industry pressures to be sexy despite progress from #MeToo: “We work for women and for a show that’s so much about our bodies, and yet we’re never sexualized. That’s not a priority of the show. And it certainly is in sync with how I feel as a person in terms of having little interest in having to prove my own sexiness.”
