From the start Natasha Lyonne has cultivated an eclectic career, working with Mike Nichols, Woody Allen, and even Pee-wee Herman before she turned 17. In Slums of Beverly Hills, alongside screen vets Marisa Tomei and Alan Arkin, she left an indelible impression as the wisecracking Vivian Ambromowitz. She’s since spent time everywhere, from the arthouse to the playhouse to the bargain bin to the blockbuster, and now she’s on Netflix. Catch her on your own time in the hysterical female prison comedy Orange Is the New Black.

First big break: Opal on PeeWee's Playhouse
 
Since then I've: Been waiting to play a toothless hippie pirate again.                                                                
 
My favorite character to date: Vivian Alonso Abramowitz in The Slums of Beverly Hills
 
Next project: Orange Is The New Black on Netflix
 
Big budget films are: Loud                                                                                
 
If I wasn't acting, I'd be: Sleeping
 
Ever work in an office? No, but I resent my boyfriend every morning for going to the office and leaving me home alone to entertain myself.
 
Most surreal thing since arriving in Hollywood?  In Paris at age 16, hugging Woody Allen on our last night of shooting. Both of us were dressed as Groucho Marx and as I cried my shoe polish mustache bled down my chin.
 
Tell us an uncomfortable personal secret. I hate showering. I think it's boring. Yes, I do it all the time, but it's just so damn repetitive.  
 
Unusual habits: Without fail, on e-mail chains, I never know when to stop replying.  
 
Work philosophy: Know my lines, show up on time, be in the moment, and tell the truth.
 
Character philosophy: Generally, if I can find an aspect of her psyche or behavior that I identify with honestly, I have a way in. I find talking to strangers in character helps a great deal and is also enjoyable.  
 
Advice for the working woman: I read somewhere that a hospice nurse said that people's single biggest regret at death was not being true to themselves. I think about that a lot when my job starts to feel too important.
