You may know her as Just Shoot Me's Blush editor Maya Gallo or Julia Roberts' potty-mouthed best friend, Kit De Luca, in Pretty Woman. But these days you can find Laura San Giacomo on TNT's Saving Grace, playing forensic scientist—and Holly Hunter's BFF—Rhetta Rodriguez. She opened up about why she loves her latest alter ego.
Q: Saving Grace is pretty different than the last TV show we saw you on, Just Shoot Me. Do you like doing drama better than comedy?
A: I really like them both. I like changing up the tone and style of things I do. I'm really fortunate that I've gotten to do that in my career. It's like changing foods—like eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for years and years and then someone puts a salad in front of you and you go, 'Okay, yeah, I wanted a change.' It's fun to get really intense and emotionally detailed and complicated. Certainly situation comedy is harder than people who are good at it make it look, but it's fun to do something different.
