Don’t worry, it happens a lot, Anna Chlumsky tells us.
The 32-year-old actress will be on the subway, enjoying her married-with-a-baby-on-the-way New York City life, when a passerby tells her how much they loved her in My Girl. You know, the Macaulay Culkin-starring, tear-jerking film that came out 22 years ago.
“When it gets old is when someone you’ll meet might say, ‘Oh, that’s all you’ve done,'” Chlumsky says, referencing the decade-long break she took from acting in the 90s. Then she laughs it offand why shouldnt she? Chlumsky is making major waves here and now as Amy Brookheimer, the sarcastic and trusty chief-of-staff to Julia Louis-Dreyfus’s oft-befuddled Vice President on HBO’s killer comedy Veep.
To mark the shows new season, which starts on Sunday, Chlumsky rang up ELLE.com to talk about her acting resurrection, Veeps scary truthfulness and playing with Barbies.
