The movie opens up with John Hamm and Kristen Wiig and a very awkward sex scene. John Hamm was an old teacher of yours back in the day, if I have that right. Watching your old teacher naked having sex in a movie, is that weird or is that a fantasy come true?
Interesting question. I think it would be a fantasy for any woman watching. Doesn't necessarily have to be your teacher, any woman would enjoy watching John Hamm doing that.
It brings everything full circle for you, right? To have had him as a teacher back in the day and now you're starring in a film with him? Talk about that a little bit.
I think when he started starring in "Mad Men" and was on the sides of buses and on posters it was so exciting. It was this hometown pride that you felt. In St. Louis there's a shrine to him in my high school. On top of everything he's such a nice person, so when I found out he was going to be in this movie it was so exciting. He's such a down-to-earth, grounded Mid-Westerner. He's been able to retain all that, despite all the huge success he's had.
When you do Vegas, how do you do Vegas? What's your thing?
I have only been to Vegas once. It was my first time being a bridesmaid. I think we did the slot machines. We sat out by the pool and we went gambling. Nothing too rowdy.
