I'll do anything for my job, including having my hair bleached 13 times in one day. Ooh. I'm obsessed with jewelry. I never leave the house without it. One day I dream of creating my own line. Oh. I can believe that. Oh. These are good. Audience? Let's go over them. Sick southern accept. Bleached hair 2313 times in one day. Jewelry line. To have her own jewelry line. Which one do you think is the lie? All: Hair. Hair. Hair. First thing I heard was hear. They do not believe you bleached your hair 13 times in one day. Too much? I think that the lie is the southern accent. Lara says -- thank you. Thank you. playing the role of josh, I'm going with -- I don't think i don't think there's a thick southern accent. You're an actress. You do accents great, you know what I mean. What is it? He lie is I'm not from texas. Whoa. 13 times is true. It's true. Do we have time for that story. Who did that to you? It was my first movie, "a walk in the clouds" with keanu reeves. They wanted to make me a redhead. They didn't want to spend money to go to a salon. I was in a motel 6 in napa valley. This woman came in, put bleach on my head. It was darker here, lighter, it switches and switches, and switches, switched, switched, switched. And then it fell out. Yeah. Did it after the film? It was like corn stalk. We couldn't get a comb through it. Say good-bye to our friend, debra. Thank you so much.
