That Time Alison Brie, Nick Offerman, and Megan Mullally Smoked Pot to Promote a Movie

Well, this seems like a fun time. The best part, other than all the parts, is that Alison Brie isn't even in this movie. She must've just did this as a friendly gesture. Meaning Megan probably texted her one Sunday and been like, "Hey Al, we are shooting this promo thing for a movie we're in that Nick produced. You want to appear in it and maybe stay for dinner. Nick is grilling some steaks, you know Nick, and I'm making a salad with some veggies I got from the Silverlake farmers market." (Megan Mullally is famous for long texts.)

Alison Brie Reminisces About Working as a Birthday Clown

"I think I was 17 or 18 at the time. A friend of mine who I did drama with… goes, “They’re looking for young, cute, fun girls to be clowns"… I would literally drive into Compton, change into my clown gear, and then drive to whatever party. It was an awesome job… My clown name was Sunny; it was pretty straightforward. I had a yellow wig and a yellow suit, and I did my own face paint, of course. I also did characters sometimes, like Cinderella and Snow White and Powerpuff Girls, which was the worst, because you had to wear a little mini dress, but then a huge head that just [...]

Alison Brie Slaps on Her Gay Goggles and Talks About Being Naked Again

Alison Brie is charming and funny and such but she tends to talk about only two things when she goes on talks shows: going to art school and times when she was naked.

 "Who is that super attractive female sitting naked in that tree?"

"Oh, that is future television star [...]
