You guys, I never knew how much you loved Busy Philipps! She showed up in that picture of Michelle Williams and Jason Segel that one time, and you guys flipped out. How could I have known?

But now that I know how strongly you feel, and how strongly our lovely new writer, Bobby, feels (by the way, guys, how awesome are your new writers?), I couldn’t hold back this interview once I found it. Especially because after reading it, I love her a little bit too.

Here we go:

What’s your secret/hidden talent?
I’m very crafty, and it’s not really a secret since the invention of Twitter and Instagram. But I make these pretty awesome 3D sculptural cakes and I make my daughter little crafty things and we do a lot of that stuff at my house, so it’s not a secret. Just my talent.

What’s your guiltiest pleasure?
You’re going to think I’m so boring … I don’t believe in guilty pleasures. If you enjoy something, there’s nothing guilty about it.

If you were on a reality show, what would it be called?
I would never be on a reality show.

Who’s your ideal drinking buddy, living or dead?
I don’t know now, but I remember when I was on “Dawson’s Creek,” Vince Vaughn had come to do re-shoots for some movie in Wilmington and I really wanted to go drinking with him … so I wanted to stalk him and find him and ask him. [laughs] Not now, not at this point, but 10 years ago I really wanted to go drinking with Vince Vaughn.

What’s your biggest peeve?
I have the same pet peeve as Anderson Cooper, which is bare feet in public. I hate it. It so grosses me out, especially in New York. Oh my God, New York in the summer with people and their feet in their sandals and their flip-flops, like get it away!

I love how it’s not anything really groundbreaking, but it still makes me want to hang out with her.  Like, I want to make fancy cakes too, Busy!  I want to reminisce about Vince Vaughn and share prudish but deep feelings about feet.  I want the same things you want.  Let’s want them together.
