I mentioned to a friend that I was interviewing you, and he raised a question about the pairing of Sofia and Ruxin. You and Nick Kroll have great chemistry, but how often do you hear that Sofia would never marry someone like Ruxin in real life?
I think that Sofia would marry a Ruxin. I would marry a Ruxin!
Why? What does she see in him?
I think he’s charming. I think he makes her laugh. This season we’re having some marital issues. I think I’m doing four episodes and each one has to do with their relationship. So there’s going to be a new side of Ruxin and Sofia. But going back to your question, I’m very attracted to Nick as a person. Nadine is. It’s not a sexual attraction, but it could be if I got to know him better and he got to know me. He’s somebody who’s intelligent and funny and he has it going on. He’s a great guy.
I think if anyone feels that way about the show it would only be because of Ruxin’s tendency to skew the truth or rub certain things in his friends’ faces.
Yeah, I mean, I understand [why] other people looking at it might think, “Oh, Sofia would never,” but I think that’s incorrect.
You originally thought fantasy football was much different than it is. What’s the biggest thing you’ve learned? Do you have your own team?
I don’t have my own team. I’ve learned that it is incredibly competitive. To me it’s just way too complicated. I probably just don’t have the time in my life to even learn about it anymore. It seems really fun.
Is that the topic of conversation frequently on set? The guys have their own league together, right?
Yeah. I don’t feel like they’re always talking about it, but they certainly know more about it than I do. They know about football all across the board. They’re fans, which is cool. It’s a little unrelatable to me. I like watching football, but I still don’t know football. I don’t understand it. I didn’t grow up with a father who had me watch sports, and he rarely watched sports. And I didn’t have any brothers or cousins around, and I went to an all-girls school. So the male world, the masculine world is still so foreign to me.
Is there something you do have an interest in that would normally be attributed to guys? A passion for beer or cars or something?
I’m all girl. [Laughs.] I really am. I like esoteric things, so if a guy’s spiritual, but that would be more feminine anyway. I don’t have anything like that at all. Hiking! I like hiking, but I like hiking with trees. [Laughs.]
As opposed to mountains?
Yeah, as opposed to mountains. As opposed to just the desert. [Laughs.]
What can you tell me about the other movies you’ve already filmed, like “Snitch”?
So “Snitch” is with The Rock and I play his wife. I got to do an amazing kissing scene with him, but it was cut out of the movie! Yes it was. Because they ran out of time and they needed to shorten the story and get to the point quicker and a lot of our scenes in the beginning got cut. Our relationship scenes got cut in the beginning, which is heartbreaking but it’s fine. At least I got to do it. At least I experienced that man’s lips.
How do you compare working with Dwayne Johnson to working with Denzel Washington?
I think I got to work with the two hottest men in Hollywood, that’s for sure! One is not better than the other. They’re both amazing. They’re so hot. I’m a lucky girl!
