Here's my theory: movie studios know that the star of the movie is someone no one can really identify with because we know too much about her — she's too beautiful, she's too rich — but once you give that gorgeous A-lister a blue-collar bestie, she suddenly becomes more relatable. Because the real secret is that the best friend is you! If that actress can be best friends with Julia Roberts/Jennifer Aniston/Cameron Diaz/Jennifer Garner, than so can you! Yes, we all want to be the star, we want to be the girl who gets the guy in the end, but the more realistic scenario is that we could maybe, actually be that person's best friend.
You've heard the phrase, "There are no small roles, just small actors"? Well, I kind of disagree. There are small roles, but when you get a lot of them in a row, you can become a pretty successful actress, and that's what I've done. At least for now, I'm not saying I don't want bigger roles. I'm not that self-satisfied. And who knows how much longer I'll keep getting jobs. I don't have a crystal ball, and even if I did, I'd probably drop it by accident.
