I'm a 20-something actress in quarter-life crisis: my big break hits and I break my career -- got stuck volunteering in the E.R. I'm working on finding the funny, even when it hurts. My mom would have wanted it that way... On my mind: movies, music, men... but being an actress in comedies isn't always ha ha funny.
Fill in the blank: "People who like _________ will love my blog!"
...pushing through the stuck to get to the good stuff...
...the details of an LA actress' ups and downs...
...seeing a rising star stumble...
...seeing the inside of Hollywood...
(and of course:)
...fashion tips, great finds, amazing tunes, best of LA...
What makes you different from other bloggers?
My agent forced me into it when my movie was coming out... then I kinda blew it with my career, but I kinda like it now!
More-and-More we're all about Me-Me-Me and it's annoying-annoying-annoying!Maybe it's because Volunteering in the ER has made me more sensitive to the needs of others, but I've really been noticing that as a society everyone's pretty much out for their own needs, to the detriment of others'. Just yesterday as I was starting out my shift, I noticed one inconsiderate thing after another and it really got to me.Breaking away from Me-Me-Me | Funny Stories + Hollywood Hurts | Evie Stewart's Funny…See More

2012 Comedy Shows are trending toward "Cruel" -- is that funny to you? We've come a long way from the teasing comedy of FRIENDS AND FRASIER, but does that mean we're headed in the right direction?Nana Jane on the NEW NORMAL is evil, bigoted and talks to everyone in the most derogatory way. Does that make you laugh? I love comedy with heart. Nana Jane seems heartless to me.What do you think?When Did Comedy turn Mean? | Funny Stories + Hollywood Hurts | Evie Stewart's Funny Bone…See More
With all of the apps popping up in the medical field (like JiffPad, Medkidz) -- how about one that helps us figure out what medical professionals are really THINKING? I have a medical professional in mind for this -- and I'm interested in a romantic reading, STAT!I mean, it's only a matter of time, right -- before we scan measure a person's pulse, eye dilation to help us interpret someone's true heart. If only there were an app that could interpret Romantic Intentions. Now that's something…See More
Nurses (when they think no one is listening) say the funniest things. I've started keeping "eavesdrop-notes" (shhhh! don't tell) of Hospital Soundbytes on my slow Volunteer Shifts. It helps pass the time and gives me something to post about later (win/win).There are so many behind-the-scenes traumas and traumas -- plus the occasional romance (hope/hope) and juicy gossip.Hospital Soundbytes | Funny Stories + Hollywood Hurts | Evie Stewart's Funny Bone…See More
Nora Ephron has always been such a huge inspiration to me in countless ways. She connected with us on every humorous human level.Thankfully her wonderful films, books and articles will live on and on. But today, I'm inspired by her "What I will miss" and "What I won't miss" lists.I've decided to do some of my own. Check them out (and let me know what you'd put on your own lists):Thinking like Nora Ephron | Funny Stories + Hollywood Hurts | Evie Stewart's Funny Bone …See More
Now that I'm home, I'm thinking back to all of the fun places I discovered when I was in Europe. The Eurostar is an awesome way to get from London to Paris! Wish there was a fast train like that to everywhere! But if I have to fly, Virgin Atlantic is definitely my first choice. Everything about it seems easier and cleaner and nicer than other airlines. Highly recommend!Had great sushi in London at Roka and Zuma. When I was craving "healthy" I discovered Daylesford Organic Farms in Notting…See More
Wes Anderson's latest, MOONRISE KINGDOM is perfect in my opinion. It has all of the elements that make a film great and more.... visually, universally, deeply.It's about Suzy and Sam, two unpopulars who connect on every level. They explore and embrace each other's uniqueness, and isn't that what we all want our soulmate to do? I adored it! I think you will too. It's a 94 minute smile. Let me know what you think.Thanks.Embracing uniqueness | Funny Stories + Hollywood Hurts | Evie Stewart's Funny…See More
Finding your Soulmate is a major challenge, right? You spend so much time worrying, thinking, dreaming and stressing, that sometimes you're too confused to even recognize when it's actually happening.Being in the right frame of mind, getting the timing right and accepting that no one is PERFECT is part of key to success.Will it happen and when is always on your mind...Connecting Two Souls | Funny Stories + Hollywood Hurts | Evie Stewart's Funny Bone …See More
Why do people tend to tell you what's wrong rather than what's right? It's always a downer and it's not necessarily productive. In fact, it can be kinda destructive, if it happens too much -- especially in relationships. When we feel appreciated, we want to do more -- at least that's how it works for me. And even if I've done something wrong, it helps to soften the blow when someone also notices what I've done right.Positive leads to positive and sadly negative leads to negative. Let's strive…See More
