I love Allison Janney!

So on the next page of my EW was "My Favorite Scene" with Allison Janney and it's so funny because this was one of mine and my sister's favorite scenes in Hairspray, because of the line, the action and the delivery.

Quote:
"One of my favorite scenes is in Hairspray, where I say, 'Devil child! Devil child!' when I shake the holy water at my daughter because she has been harboring Tracy in our basement locker. We had tried several different lines and it was totally an ad-lib that Adam [Shankman, the director] loved. As soon as I said it, I thought it'd be an extra-special touch to use one of those things that priests use to shake the holy water out on someone. When you are in small parts like this, you have to do something to stand out. I am competing with John Travolta in a dress and a female fat suit -- I had to do something."


I. love. her.
