Awesome you have the magazine. Anything she said in particular that stood out?

Nice to meet you Steph.

Thanks for adding me.

I have the magazine in my hands. I'll just transcribe the best bits. Give me a second.

[Newton] ... 'showcases a rare combination of comic timing and bombshell sex appeal: she looks like a goddess...'

'In short, Newton is extremely attractive and she makes us laugh.

" I have an inappropriate laughing reflex... at funerals , or any time when it's wrong to start laughing, i'll laugh really loudly to the point where people think I'm crazy. i got plenty of detention at school. Always from laughing."

"... It was during the audition process for Ugly Betty's Amanda that she found the ideal vessel for her inner comic buffoon. "in my head, I saw a supermodel. I thought a tall skinny biatch should play this part. And then I thought the only thing funnier than a biatch is someone who wants to be a biatch but fails miserably. That's hysterical."


The article then proceeds to interview Amanda as if she was applying for a scretary job at Mode. i'm not including all the questions, just the ones that showcase her personality the best.

ESQ: What are your strengths?

BN: I'm confortable in any situation. i don't get intimidated and I don't get embarrassed. You can throw me into pretty much any environment and I'll probably make friends with most of the people around me and find a way to laugh at myself first, so that no one else can laugh at me."

ESQ: What do you like to do when you're not working?

BN: I like to cook. i think I would love to be a chef someday. any time I get a free day I like to plan a dinner, go to the supermarket and make it a whole event. I have taken cookies to a whole new level. I'm a big baker. because of the sweet tooth I got from my dad, I can eat cookies all day. My mom and i love to exchange recipes. I called her when I was on the way over here, and she was making chicken."

ESQ: Where do you see yourself in 5 to 10 years' time?

BN: In 5 to 10 years' time, i'll be five to ten years' younger because real secretaries age backwards. So I'll be a young twentysomething. Also, i'll not only be answering the phone, but changing the way phones are answered. I plan on revolutionising the role of the secretary."


She has a strong sense of self, clearly adores her family and is witty. My words not the article's..

Look above for parts of the article.

I'm happy Becki is getting the attention and recognition she deserves.

I loved it, thanks! I have the same laughing condition and it's gotten me into trouble before, too. I also love how she answered where she sees herself in 5 - 10 years.

LOVE that and it's so true!

I haven't seen any of those icons, but I'll take a look later.

I saw the movie August Rush today and was surprised to see Becki in it. It was a small scene and she was a meanie but it was fun to see her.

Steph - I haven't seen any. I'm not great with LJ, but I'll try to look around as well.

Mel - That's so awesome Becki is in August Rush! Who did she interact with?

You don't seem too upset about that.

Thanks guys for looking. I'm gonna have to make the icons myself.


I love it when they appear in random movies. I've wanted to see august rush anyway since it looks quite good. Now i have more of a reason.
