You play the titular marriage counselor in this movie. I play Judith, who wants to be a marriage counselor. And that's what she's frustrated about, is that she's not.
She graduated college, and, like most college graduates, she has to take the first job that's paying her. It's at a dating service and she's pretty much just helping old guys get a date, which is so boring and disgusting to her when she really just wants to help people work out their problems. Ironically, through this job, she ends up meeting some guy who ends up causing her to see that she's not so happy in her own marriage. Would you be a good marriage counselor?
Yes, I am oftentimes the ear for some people that I know and love. Which I like being. I don't know if I'd like being a marriage counselor though, because that's too deep for me. I interviewed therapists and marriage counselors as research for this, and I was like, I respect what you do, but I never want to do it.
Could never do it. I don't want to do it. It's just overwhelming. I have respect for therapists in general, because they hear so many stories. It's a lot to hold and take in. I've been married for two and a half years, so I'm somewhat of a newlywed.
I couldn't say I'm an expert or anything, but I have learned some things in these past two and a half years about being married. What's your best advice for a happy marriage? My best advice would be that you have to be vulnerable with each other. Like everyone says you have to be honest, you have to communicate, like yes, of course, but you gotta be willing to be vulnerable. We all try to pretend we're the person we want to be when we're really not, and you've just gotta be willing to say here are all my flaws, here's who I am, take it or leave it, if you love me still, then let's do this.
Are you a good matchmaker? You know what, I have an idea. It's too much pressure! These are peoples' lives we're talking about here. What if it doesn't work? If you're friends with both of them, then it's awkward if it doesn't work.
Kim Kardashian is also in this movie. Do you watch "Keeping Up with the Kardashians"? I don't. I'm a grandma at heart. Really, I'm just now catching up on "Downton Abbey" and "24" and "30 Rock," all these shows that my friends have been talking about, I'm just now catching on.
Are you a Netflix marathoner? Me and [husband] Josiah [Bell] literally Netflix everything. We started "Downton Abbey" in January. Season 3, episode 5 we're currently at, I don't want it to end because it's fantastic. How good is it?! And Bates. Bates is so amazing.
He's in jail right now, that's what I know. Don't tell me anything. I'm not caught up! Oh, well he's not in jail. You didn't hear that from me. What other series have you been binge-watching? It's appropriate for any occasion. Any occasion! Especially eating. You never feel guilty for eating while you're watching "30 Rock.
