In Case You Missed It: Kristin's Reddit AMA

Kristin Chenoweth rocked it out yesterday during her very first Reddit "Ask Me Anything" session! In case you missed it, here are a few of our favorite questions and answers...

Q: Craziest thing that happened on the set of Wicked?

Kristin_Chenoweth:

A: I think, for me, being onstage, and what made me break character TERRIBLY - unprofessional, completely, but it could not be helped. We had "Verilights" which are movable lights - and for some reason, a group of them got stuck on a section of the audience. So about 20 people were in a spotlight, and they were VERY uncomfortable. So seeing them be uncomfortable, made me laugh SO HARD - they wanted to see WICKED, and yet all we can see is them... yeah, that to me... I laughed, and everybody on stage was laughing so hard too... not professional. But delightful nonetheless.

Q: What are your thoughts on the upcoming Wicked movie? Any interest in being involved? Kristin_Chenoweth:
A: First of all, I'm glad they are going to do a movie. I figured they'd do it someday - I don't know when it's planned for. I mean of course i'd love to be involved - it is a huge part of my life. I don't know who I'd play - I'd be interested in Madame Morrible at this point - it gives a bigger audience a chance to see the show, and that makes me happy, whether I'm involved or not.

Q: I think it's fair to say that besides your incredible talent, a portion of your success comes from your very unique, incredibly easy to identify voice. Was there ever a time that you disliked your voice? What do you think about it now?

Kristin_Chenoweth:

A: It's incredibly difficult for me to hear myself on a recording, speaking. Singing - that I can listen to, and critique it and listen to it. I feel like I sound like a bug too. I feel like a combination of Betty Boop, Marilyn Monroe, and a 5 year old. And my voice will never have balls in it. And that's good. It is a unique voice. It is probably a voice that some find, I'm sure, annoying (in fact, I'm sure cuz I've read it) but it is mine. And more so than when I walk down the street it's when I speak that people recognize me. So I think surely it's probably hurt me in my career, but mostly it's been a blessing. It's unique. I'm never going to be Demi Moore. It's never gonna happen. She's amazing and got her sound. But I'm never going to be a sex call operator. It's never going to happen.   Want to see more? Click here to catch up on the entire AMA.
