I took P.S. I Love You thinking it was going to be a little funny, and I ended up crying every day on that film. It was one of the more difficult dramas I've done. I love to laugh. I love comedies. I just have to find a good comedy because for women [actors], they are few and far between.

The Office set an entire plot around debating whether you were hot or not. Have you seen that episode?

Rachel Hamilton, CAMBRIDGE, ILL.

I'm not a big television watcher, but definitely everyone made me aware of it. It's flattering anytime someone mentions you. But I don't think of myself in terms of that.

What do you think of the state of women in Hollywood?

Samantha Woo, KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA

There is so much [emphasis] put on the way we look, which is interesting, going back to the Office question. Are you hot, or are you not? It really does a disservice. There's so much more to life than looking a certain way.
