Audra Lowe: Welcome back everybody. It’s time for hot topics and we’ve got actress Patricia Arquette here with us. And Patricia I had a little gamble of questions for you. A little bit here and a little bit over there. And first of all, I got to ask you, how would you stay looking so fabulous? Everybody wants to know what celebrities do? What’s your secret?
Patricia Arquette: Having a makeup artist, and people who dress you and people who brush your hair and blow it out. That’s the secret.
Audra Lowe: That’s it, right? So when there are gone, it’s just stretch like that.
Patricia Arquette: Yeah, just like bloom.
Audra Lowe: No, you look fantastic. You really, really do.
Patricia Arquette: Oh, how sweet. Thank you.
Audra Lowe: You’ve worked in television and film. Does either of those two appeal to you more so as a Mom in terms of your schedule, which do you prefer?
Patricia Arquette: Well, definitely film. It’s a lot easier than being a Mom, because usually women are not necessarily the lead in film. You have longer to shoot at and you have more time off. And at one hour lead, it’s supposedly the hardest job in show business because you’re just working. We work almost ten months of the year filming.
Audra Lowe: That’s a lot of your schedule. Now your TV husband versus your real husband, made you differences? Any similarities? What would you say?
Patricia Arquette: Their major differences? There are not a lot of similarities. They’re both smart guys. They’re both funny guys, interesting.
Audra Lowe: That’s good. I know that you’re on another show recently. You’re talking about this attack bunny that you had. There’s a bunny that was a little bushes, right? Do you still have the rabbit?
Patricia Arquette: No, we don’t.
Audra Lowe: You don’t. This is a rabbit that we like in fishes.
Patricia Arquette: Oh, yeah. I mean rabbits can tend to go far pretty easily. She would never attack my daughter, thank God. But she would attack everybody else and even other animals. She was like messy.
Audra Lowe: Also you have to get rid of her.
Patricia Arquette: Well you know what? I have turned out was, my eyes were always watering, and then I didn’t what was going on and I was sneezing a lot and being really tired to turn out. I was really allergic. I went into that pin test, where they put all those allergens on your back. And I was like, “Can you test me for rabbit?” And he said, “Oh, I was just about to take that off to test. No one has rabbits anymore.” And I said, “We have a rabbit.” And then I say, “What is that? That’s so itchy. It’s driving me crazy.” And he would say, it’s just the rabbit.”
Audra Lowe: You’re kidding. So there’s a reason, okay.
Patricia Arquette: So that’s part of the reason although I think I would have just suffered through it. But my daughter was starting to get a little freaked up by her doing. So we found a place where she’s with all these other rabbits and she’s much happier.
Audra Lowe: That’s interesting. So now we had to follow up on the rabbit. It’s good to know. I know that you mentioned earlier in the show how tough it is to work as an actress in Hollywood, and it’s a tough business. If you were to be approached by say your children or someone else’s children and they wanted to become an actor and actress, what would you say in terms of tips for them?
Patricia Arquette: It’s kind of hard because the truth is the business has change so amazingly from the time when I started. But the great thing is now, there’s the internet and there’s YouTube. And people can very simply learn to make their own movies. But I do think reading books about acting, studying acting, taking good classes, I mean there’s all these teachers, doesn’t necessarily mean her great. So you have to just listen in your own instinct and feel what feels right and what doesn’t.
Audra Lowe: Do your homework too, right? Obviously on a teaching.
Patricia Arquette: Yeah, but it’s very hard to break in right now. But I do think that you can make your own movies and break them like that.
Audra Lowe: Hard to break into and stay in but she’s doing a fantastic job at it. Thank you so much Patricia.
Patricia Arquette: Thank you.
Audra Lowe: Good to see you here. Alright, stay with us guys. We’ll be back after this.
