'BRIDESMAIDS' A huge door opened this year – Bridesmaids kind of set it off. I remember when it came out, every girl was tweeting, "Go see Bridesmaids!" It felt like people were getting over their petty rivalries to support the movie – there used to be this misconception that if another woman succeeds, then I won't. Suddenly, everyone realized that this was a battle we could all win as women who do comedy.

GETTING TO BE FUNNY I get to do so much comedy on New Girl. I hadn't really had that opportunity before. I can't say what I was – someone who played people's girlfriends in comedies? I was sort of in that zone of "she's funny but not that funny." Now I'm treated more like a comedian, which is much better.
