Gillian Jacobs Explains Twitter's Impact on 'Community' in 'Flare'

Gillian Jacobs graces the cover of Flare magazine’s January 2015 issue, out on newsstands now!

Here’s what the 32-year-old actress shared with the mag here:

On her past as a struggling actor: “I was really, really broke, and I slept on this chair that folded out into a bed. I was at the stage where all my friends were worried about me. I know what it’s like to be stalled in your career, with the people around you being supportive but also being like, ‘Maybe you should just give that up.’”

On her Community character Britta: “It’s more interesting and fun to be flawed,. I also love that Britta bounces back no matter what.”

On the upside of Community getting cancelled: “Without Twitter, Community would have been cancelled. But when you’re a flop, they cut your order down to 13 episodes, so that gave all of us more time to make movies.”

Gillian Jacobs Talks About Being a Feminist in 'Bust' Magazine

Gillian Jacobs graces the cover of Bust magazine’s December/January 2015 issue, out on newsstands now!

Here’s what the 32-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On her childhood: “Apparently, my elementary school called my mom and told her that I was talking to myself on the playground and I had no friends. My mom says I was a dramatic child and that I made a big production out of everything, so she thought I would like acting. She signed me up for this class and I just fell in love with it from the start.”

On comedy: “No one would hire me for [comedy] ’cause everything I’d done was a serious, heavy drama. I think unless someone has seen you do something, they can’t imagine you doing it.”

On being a feminist: “I definitely still consider myself a feminist. I just think I’m surrounded by more people now who share these same ideas. When you’re a little kid and you’re wanting to talk about equal pay, you’re not gonna find a lot of other little kids who are equally passionate about it. And i think my response to that was to become very strident about it. I think I understood as a kid that I could probably have more friends if I stopped talking about those sorts of things, but like Britta, it made me talk about them more.”

Sarah Paulson is stylish in a black and white frock while attending the 2014 Elle Women in Hollywood Celebration held at the Four Seasons Hotel on Monday (October 20) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Jessica will be honored at the event, which celebrates “the creative contributions that women have made to the world of film.”

Jessica Lange was the one I most wanted to emulate, and the one whose career I found the most inspiring. Little did I know! The first time I worked with her was in 2005, when we did a production of “The Glass Menagerie” on Broadway. It was and always will be one of the great acting experiences of my life, because I was literally acting with one of my idols. If I could have told my 19-year-old self that that was in my future, I would have calmed down about a lot of things,” Sarah recently shared to Variety about her co-star.

FYI: Sarah is wearing an Oscar de la Renta dress, Christian Louboutin shoes, and Neil Lane jewelry. Jessica is wearing L.K. Bennett shoes. Gillian is wearing a Dries Van Noten dress and shoes with a Vince Camuto clutch.

The Poster for Leighton Meester & Adam Brody's Film 'Life Partners' is Here!

Leighton Meester and Gillian Jacobs get special color treatment on the poster for their film Life Partners.

Here’s a synopsis of the film: At 29, the most long-term relationship Sasha (Meester) and Paige (Jacobs) have ever been in is with each other, using their co-dependent friendship as an excuse not to venture out into the dating world alone. But when Paige meets nerdy Tim (Adam Brody) and starts to get serious for the first time, the nature of their friendship begins to shift. Fearing she’s being cast aside, Sasha tries to keep their relationship the same, but does growing up also mean growing apart?

Also starring in the film are Kate McKinnon and Gabourey Sidibe. Be sure to catch the movie on iTunes and VOD on November 6 and in theaters December 5.
