1Bright red hair
1Having my son, I mean, I feel already that it makes me a better actress. Just the feeling and the love that expands in my being is more than I ever thought possible.
2I never thought about being on a series before. It seemed like such a big commitment. But I love going to work every day. This is not about ego, it's about work, and that's refreshing in this town.
3Right now I just want to chill for a while. Take a hiatus from all the craziness. To clean my house, see my family. Just see some movies and pick some strawberries.
4The idea is that we're doing it just for the joy of the actual physical experience. We may record something just for the fun of it, but the idea is just to be truly joyful and truly fun, especially for me, because I take myself too seriously all the time.
5We played one warm-up gig at this bar that was kinda like that bar in 'The Blues Brothers' with the chicken wire. This place called The Brick House, in Housatonic. I really can't believe we're going to play for people in New York City. I'm terrified, but it's a small enough room. But it's really just supposed to be for the fun of it.
6I came to L.A. to work and become a better actress, not to be a star.
7I saw 'Food, Inc.' last night - it was like a horror movie. I'm definitely thinking about my food supply now and how I want to grow my own.
8I think I need a little break. I've got a two-year old. I'll be part of The Leisure Class for a while.
9Yeah, I've always sung, and I always try to find a way for music to be in my life.
10Being an actress is similar to trying to fit in with the popular kids in high school. You're expected to drive the right car, wear the right clothes and say the right things.
1Has 2 children with her husband Samuel H. Handel - a son named Orson Halcycon Handel (b. January 16, 2007) and a daughter (b. 2012).
2The last face seen on "Six Feet Under" is hers.
3Stars in the Broadway revival of "Awake and Sing!" at the Belasco Theater. Previews begin March 23, 2006, toward an opening night of April 17. [April 2006]
4National Theatre, London, making her UK stage debut in a major revival of "Buried Child" by Sam Shepard. [September 2004]
5Appearing nightly in the Shakespeare in the Park production of "Romeo and Juliet," June 5-July 8, in New York City. Location: the Delacorte Theater (an open-air amphitheater), situated on the SW corner of the Great Lawn in Central Park, closest to the entrance at 81st St. and Central Park West. [June 2007]
6Was author Audrey Niffenegger's personal choice for the role of Clare Anne Abshire in the adaptation of her novel The Time Traveler's Wife (2009). However, Niffberger was not involved with the production and Rachel McAdams was cast instead.
7Alan Ball and she once discussed the possibility of a guest role on True Blood (2008). According to Ambrose it never happened as "the timing didn't work out".
8Has co-starred with Paul Rudd on two films: Diggers (2006) and Wanderlust (2012).
9Moved to New York because she wanted more theater in her life. She quickly got a part in the successful play "Exit the King" opposite Susan Sarandon and Geoffrey Rush.
10Was chosen as one of People Magazine's annual 100 Most Beautiful People in the World, Beauty at Every Age section, for age 29, in May 2007.
11Did her own singing in Psycho Beach Party (2000).
12Was a big fan of Parker Posey before she worked with her on The Return of Jezebel James (2008). After working on the show, they befriended.
13She replaced Michelle Williams in Where the Wild Things Are (2009), after it was decided that Williams didn't quite match the filmmakers' vision of how the character should sound.
14Her father is of Italian descent while her mother is of German, English, and Irish ancestry.
15Her grandmother told her to become a funeral director, because she thought acting was very unpredictable, and funeral director would be a practical profession. As a result, she became an actress who played member of family who have funeral business on "Six Feet Under".
16When she was a kid, she sang at weddings and funerals.
17Husband Sam, a photographer, is originally from Boston.
18Lauren is taking piano lessons.
