Interview with Marissa Jaret Winokur
I thought it would be super fun to do interviews with my mom fashionistas and give you guys the REAL DEAL on what goes down in Hollywood with moms who also love fashion! Its not always as glamorous as it seems!!!!
In 2009 I moved to LA from NYC and my very first project was with someone who would ultimately become one of my very best friends, Marissa Jaret Winokur. To say that we have been through hell and back together is an understatement. We have been through some horrible times and some amazing times together….Its rare you meet someone that you know in an instant you will be friends with forever…Marissa is that girl for me. Shes a REAL mom, an actress, a wife, and most importantly a friend to the end.
Mariss…Love you…always XXXXX Thanks for popping my cherry and being my first interview!!!
JE: Tell me about your closet (I have been in it and can say first hand its AMAZE):
MJW: It’s intense!! I literally have clothes from size 2 to 14 … You know I’m not lying! I use the closet in the guest room to help me rotate. Right now I have moved 2-6 out of my bedroom closed and moved back in 8-14… I never throw any thing out. YO YO dieters can’t afford to take chances!! My guilty pleasure! I have one shelf dedicated to black tank tops! There’s at least 100 from target to James Perse!
JE: What’s your FAVORITE item in that closet … FAVORITE … (not the rainbow dress!!!!)
MJW: It’s forever changes!! Today my fav is a white dress with the price tag still on … It has long sleeves so I need the weather to change fast before I gain or lose any weight 😉
JE: I know you have an obsession with clothes and fashion. Tell me honestly how many hangers does Judah really have 5?
MJW: Ha ha, no he has a whole side of the closet! He like clothes too. I do admit he lost a fourth of his side to summer dresses this year!
JE: How has motherhood changed your fashion?
MJW: OMG!!! I live in LULU Lemon! I seriously only get dressed for work. I am sitting on a baseball field or soccer field everyday!! I even wear FLATS … It’s a disaster! But my hair is always huge!!
JE: What is your favorite red carpet look?
MJW: For me? Something that zips. For others, I love the one tone. Like when the dress the makeup the hair everything is one color of tan. I always get a spray tan and wear the highest heals I can manage! I love white it always looks so clean. I however always go to black for it slimming qualities. I always have a change of shoes in my purse.
JE: Do you feel an intense amount of pressure being a celebrity to always leave house looking put together?
MJW: I feel the pressure not to embarrass my son. I was wearing loose sundry sweats the other day and my kid said ” mommy you don’t look like an actress in those DRIVING pants ” I asked what I looked like. He said “a mom or a hip hop dancer!” I felt kinda cool.
JE: What are your MUST HAVES in your closet?
MJW: Black tank tops tight leggings 10000 pairs of Spanx in all shapes and sizes!
JE: Do you miss me?
MJW: MORE THEN ANYTHING!!! My favorite times have been with you in my closest … Even when you’re telling me to throw stuff out…
JE: What has been your FAVORITE project you have done?
MJW: Nothing will ever beat Hairspray! I love working on “Playing House ” on USA it’s the funniest TV show I’ve ever been a part of. And “Muffin Top” now on Netflix is my Newest Movie! It’s hilarious Romantic Comedy and had an amazing body image message. Break Ups hurt CAKE HELPS. Everyone needs to see it!
JE: What’s your LEAST favorite red carpet look?
MJW: For me when I look like I stuffed myself in a dress and can’t breathe … But that’s my go to look?!
