“I quit acting in college. I just didn’t think it was practical,” she said. When she thought about her decision, she realized that she was computer illiterate and lacked typing skills, so she needed to give acting another try.

“I don’t really know how to do anything with computers,” the What’s Your Number? actress laughed. “I had no other options career-wise!”

Faris says that she doesn’t know why her parents were so supportive, but they were.

“Although I don’t think they wanted me to go into spoof comedy. My mom wanted me to be like Amelia Earhart or Joan of Arc. Lofty! Instead I’m queen of spoof comedies.”
