Alexis Bledel: Slacking on the Birthday Present Front!

Alexis Bledel: Slacking on the Birthday Present Front!

Alexis Bledel hits up NYC hotspot Tenjune for a Stolichnaya-sponsored Tribeca Film Festival after-party on Sunday (April 26).

Earlier in the evening, the 27-year-old actress wore the same cut-out cute dress to the premiere of her new movie, The Good Guy. At the after-party, I asked Alexis who designed her gorgeous dress. She whipped a cheat sheet out of her clutch and spelled out the designer’s name for me. “C-U-S-H-N-I-E E-T O-C-H-S.” Yes, Cushnie et Ochs. It was a glorious moment having Rory Gilmore spell a word for me considering the fast-paced dialogue she had on Gilmore Girls.

(Click inside for‘s interview with Alexis…)

JJ: [Your The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants costar] America Ferrera’s birthday was the Saturday before last (April 18). Were you able to get her anything?

AB: Um. (pauses, laughs) No, I’ve been slacking on the birthday present front but I celebrated her birthday at a party. And it was a great fun time!

JJ: Where do you like to relax in the Big Apple?

AB: The parks! It’s so nice out. I just moved here and like it better [than Los Angeles]. I lived here before Gilmore Girls started. I moved to L.A. to do the show and then when it ended, I wanted to come back. I even got to see [my Gilmore costar Lauren Graham in the Broadway revival of Guys and Dolls]. She’s awesome. Really fun.

JJ: You’ve already played a goody two-shoes on Gilmore and a prostitute in Sin City. What kinds of roles are you looking to do in the future?

AB: I’m looking for variety. Anything that’s different from what I’ve done. I like that The Good Guy is more of a grown-up role but I keep it pretty wide up. Every script you get is so different, you have to be pretty open-minded.

JJ: Can you tell us about your character in The Good Guy?

AB: Beth [Vest]! She’s an urban conservationalist in NYC and she’s dating Tommy (played by Scott Porter). He’s a trader on Wall Street, has a high pressure job and is training an up-and-coming guy (Daniel Seaver, played by Bryan Greenberg). So Beth is friends with Daniel, he’s dating Tommy, she thinks Tommy is the perfect guy… and there’s a lot that happens. It follows their dating lives.

Alexis also told she’s currently not shooting anything but as always, fielding scripts! She also reiterated her love for Wendy’s chicken nuggets! (Once on Late Night With Conan O’Brien, she called Hi-C Fruit Punch the “perfect chaser” to Wendy’s nuggets.)
