After writing, directing, producing and starring in Friends With Kids, we thought there was nothing Jennifer Westfeldt couldn’t do — until we talked beauty and fashion. Now she can officially add stylist to her resume.
Read on to find out more from “Mrs. Jon Hamm” — we know, we’re jealous he’s taken too.
SheKnows: Do you have an everyday beauty routine?
Westfeldt: I wish I had a routine! I feel as if I’m always in search of one. I’m always running out the door and am so busy, so I never quite develop one. However, I do try to get a really good, deep cleaning facial once or twice a year.
SheKnows: What’s the one beauty item you can’t live without?
Westfeldt: SPF! No matter what, I always have SPF 40 on!
SheKnows: What are your go-to fashion brands?
SheKnows: What celebrity’s closet would you most like to steal?
Westfeldt: Olivia Wilde’s! She always looks absolutely stunning on the red carpet.
SheKnows: OK, now onto your film… How did you decide on the cast? Did you have anyone in mind when you wrote the script?
Westfeldt: Ironically, the day I finished the first draft of the script, Jon and I invited some of our close actor friends over for dinner, and we did a cold reading. Adam Scott came because we’ve been friends with him for 15 years and read the role of Jason. He was truly amazing. We cast Kristen [Wiig] shortly after — before she even started shooting Bridesmaids. The more dramatic role of Missy was much different from what we were used to seeing with her genius comedy — so it was a great fit to be able to see all sides of her talent.
SheKnows: What was your favorite part about working with Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph on set?
Westfeldt: They both come from comedy and SNL, so they had the best energy and game on set. It felt like we were at summer camp all the time!
SheKnows: Did the film inspire you to want kids of your own?
Westfeldt: Jon and I have so many amazing kids in our life through our friends — we haven’t made the decision if that’s in our future yet!
