We stole the show.
See, I perform a very valuable role in Hollywood. You can always tell who the second female lead is because I’m standing to her left the first time she appears in any film. If you’re making a movie and you need to have a "hot girl" who might come between the burgeoning romantic relationship of the male lead and the female lead, and you really want to get across to the audience that this is the second female lead who might ruin the romance, but you don’t want to do anything that makes her seem overly bitchy or evil because you still want to keep her sympathetic to the audience, well, that’s where I come in. First time you show her on screen, have me standing just to her left. It’s small. It’s subtle. But trust me, the audience will get it. Yes, it’s a character piece, but I know my role, and I’m good at it.
The dvd came out today, and unlike in Zack and Miri, I think I’m pretty easy to find in this one. Exactly 27 min. and 50 seconds into the film, the first time you see Lisa P, you’ll see me in line for a ride. Sarah is standing right next to me. We’re on screen for about three seconds, and then just kind of hovering around in bokeh throughout the rest of the scene. I can actually see myself in other scenes in the movie hanging out in the background, but those are hard to find and you have to know where to look. This one is pretty straightforward.
So there you go. I’ll be expecting my call from the Academy any day now.
