Q&A with Jordana Spiro
Q: PJ's such an all-American girl. Do you relate to her at all?
A: I actually think I'm very similar to her, and that's one of the things that excited me when I read the pilot. Not necessarily how similar I was to her, because I'm an actress and I like to play different characters, but that I saw so many of my girlfriends and my three sisters in PJ. I just thought, "Wow, there's really something special here." I don't think you always get to see a woman on TV who is relatively neurosis-free, and while looking for a relationship isn't man hunting and isn't cloying and isn't a fashionista. She's concerned about her career and her friendships, and in that sense I saw a lot of my friends and myself in her.
