I love little Peter Pan collars and little puff sleeves.— Busy Philipps
The most famous Busy Philipps quotes that are simple and will have a huge impact on you
I never underestimate the power of hot rollers for your hair and eyelash curlers for your eyelashes.
Also, this is what a pregnant Busy Philipps does in her free time, I'm taking master fondant cake decorating class with Anna from 'Ace of Cakes' at Duff's Charm City Cakes. It's, like, 4 three-hour classes.
After 'Freaks and Geeks,' I dealt with several producers who wanted to cover up all my beauty marks, every single mole on my body. They tried to cover them on my first two episodes of 'Dawson's Creek,' and it just looked ridiculous, so I had to put my foot down. But it's not something I'm insecure about.
No one cares what you ate for breakfast.
Unless it's something really spectacular, don't tweet me your breakfast, I don't care.
I don't believe in guilty pleasures. If you enjoy something, there's nothing guilty about it.
I had a baby with no pain medicine, mainly because most people I talked to didn't think I'd be able to do it. So there!
Yes, I'm having a baby. I think it's so hard as a woman to give yourself a break. It's great to be healthy but you have to set a good example for your kids and know that it's not about a number on a scale but how you feel.
'Freaks and Geeks' was a show where our individuality was really celebrated.
The rugs that I picked out and the pillows with the little owls, sort of like whimsical throw pillows - I feel like you can never enough whimsical throw pillows in your house, in your life. My husband probably disagrees.
For me, coming to work and laughing is so much more preferable than coming to work and having to cry over a corpse or something. That's a drag.
Your first pregnancy you have nothing to do except sleep and take care of yourself and go to prenatal yoga or whatever. Now I have a full-time job, I have a four-year-old, I've got a life that is demanding my attention, so I've gone to prenatal yoga once. It's such a bummer.
Every episode has a purpose to move the story forward.
I think it's important for kids to express themselves with bad fashion.
I struggle a little bit now because I have a daughter and I feel with fashion, like they're sexualizing the kids so young. Little kids in high heels and that kind of thing is really difficult for me to wrap my head around.
From time to time I think I made some errors in judgment, but I have some really fashionable friends and I feel I've cultivated my own sense of style and what I feel comfortable with over the years.
I actually feel like, for a lot of my career, I wasn't able to show my comedic range. I did a lot of dramas and dramedies. I was on 'E.R.' That's not generally thought of as a funny show.
Sometimes that happens when people don't really know how long they're going to have to stretch their story out for.
I'm somebody who doesn't work with a stylist.
I'll be honest with you, I'm a mom and it's just not something I want to put money toward because it's expensive to have somebody who helps dress you and I feel like I have to pay for preschool and so many things so I don't have a stylist.
As my kid gets a little bit older, if I feel like I have a little bit more time on my hands, I'd like to get more into developing ideas and writing things.
Becoming a mom allowed me to just relax in a way I never had before.
I used to care a lot about what I looked like in public or what people thought of me. I care at least 40 percent less now.
I certainly did plays in high school and community theater, and I want to get back on the stage.
I do like to pop in and help my friends out when I can, or be a part of their projects.
And then I went to 'Dawson's Creek,' which is a show that was, for better or for worse, all about the language. It was a word-perfect show, which I'd never had any experience with. And it was really shocking for me. I felt really hemmed in. At the time, it wasn't my favorite working experience.
I love my nose! I was so nervous when I got pregnant that I was going to get that weird nose spread that you sometimes see pregnant ladies get.
I'm actually incapable of lying. I'm like a parody of a person who can't lie.
Birdie is amazing and such an incredible child and I'm having such a great time being a mom but I still want to have a career and I still look forward to auditions and parts, and when I don't get them I'm disappointed.
I just take jobs that will have me. I'm an actress that works. I'm not an actress who's ever waited.
I like starting off the new year fresh.
I'm excited to see how 2013 turns out. Maybe because I'm an actress and I am always on a diet and fitness program, but my New Year's resolution is to let myself be nice to myself about my body.
We didn't name Birdie before she was born.
When she came out I said, 'I think we gotta go with Birdie, I think that's her name.'
Jason [Nash] is just someone that I've known socially and through his stand-up, seeing him do different comedy shows, and I just really like him. I think he's a funny guy and he has a unique perspective on being a dad and a husband.
It's ludicrous that my friends in California aren't able to legally get married.
It's a civil rights issue. In 20 years we're going to look back at tapes of these antigay people saying ridiculous things on the news and it's going to sound as antiquated as the newsreels of horrible racists from the '50s.
I've always liked being funny and making people laugh.
I was a cut-up when I was a kid, and was always doing bits for my friends and family.
Writing is difficult. It's a time commitment, it's labor and I'd have to get myself to sit down and actually do the work and outline.
The good thing about being pregnant is that I don't have to worry about sucking it in or dieting!
I would never be on a reality show.
There are some people that don't take jobs because they think that they're too good for them or that they aspire to do something greater than the job that they're being presented with. I've just never been from that school.
I have to make a dress out of recycled materials for my kid's preschool 'Project Runway' - like assignment. I'm currently fusing plastic bags.
I find it to be strange that people get obsessed about how fast actresses and celebrities are taking off their baby weight. I guess people like to look to them and feel better about themselves or feel worse about themselves.
I'm so happy for anyone who chooses to get married! I want more people to join the club.
I think every job that you do gives you the opportunity to learn something new.
As hokey as that sounds, that's why I have a problem saying no to my friends. That's why I do so many random comedy shows.
Even though I do a more traditional type of being funny on television, I still know a lot of comedians and stand-ups and improv actors.
As an actor, it's always fun when you're able to feel like there's freedom to explore things and try out jokes and be funny.
My mother accidentally gave me food poisoning.
She fed me baby carrots for a snack before Christmas dinner - but they had expired in June! I threw up for the next 24 hours.
It's so hard to find the time. I only have one kid and it's hard with one kid. I can't imagine people who have more than that.
I just like working with people that I respect and think are really funny.
It's weird people think my kids will be in therapy because of their names.
Guys, my kids will be therapy for LOTS of reasons, I'm sure.
It gets super dark. I did a bunch of intense indie movies when I was starting out in my career and I was always in a bad mood because, when you're dealing with the subject matter of losing your baby, getting raped and all that stuff, it's not fun to go through. You really have to go there.
My husband has no desire to work with me.
He gets paid a lot of money to write giant movies. He's not into humoring me with my projects.
I know so many people who actually just watch television on their computers now and don't even really watch their TV anymore.
Nobody wants to see a bejeweled pregnant lady from top to bottom.
