Gracing the cover of Live Happy’s October 2017 issue, actress Anna Faris explains why being unqualified to give others advice hasn’t stopped her so far. After decades of doling out unsolicited advice and testing personal boundaries among friends, family and strangers, the actress, producer, and now author morphed her tell-it-like-it-is podcast, Unqualified, into a memoir and advice book, also called Unqualified, debuting this October.
“The goal [with the book] was to share my experience because it’s not that different from so many other people,” Faris says. “My hope is that people will walk away realizing that so many journeys are the same. My heartbreak is the same as someone else’s and if I have to be vulnerable for people to get that, that’s OK.”
In Live Happy’s interview, she talks about never fully understanding what her mom meant when she advised, “Be selfish in love” and might have sidestepped some heartaches if she had. With her own trials and tribulations in love and relationships serving as her inspiration for the podcast and book, Faris wants to help others “get it,” too.
In the issue, on newsstands now, Faris acknowledges that professionally, stepping outside her comfort zone as a comedic actress opens up opportunities to be authentic and honest. “Comedy lets me be a ‘real’ person,” she says. And I know that when I do screw up, I’ll forgive myself, too, because that’s big when it comes to overall positivity.”
“Anna Faris’ natural empathy and curiosity about how people interact and connect comes through as genuine, heartwarming and entertaining on her podcast,” says Deborah K. Heisz, Live Happy editorial director, CEO and co-founder. “Her ability to laugh at herself and share her missteps in a positive perspective also brings meaning and inspiration to others.”
