The 27-year-old Golden Globe-winning actress opened up to the mag about constantly being told she’s not a funny actress. Now, she is winning award after award for her comedic performance!
“I’m laughing [at the fact that] I’m now an award-winning comedic actress. Like, that feels absurd! I spent most of my life being told I wasn’t funny. I’ve lost many jobs because people would say, ‘We really liked her, but she’s just not funny,’” she said.
“I didn’t quite realize how much I had internalized that idea, that idea that I wasn’t funny,” Rachel added. “It was a sort of label I gave myself, like a big ol’ ‘not funny’ on my forehead. And what I’ve realized through working on this show and through trying to create this character is that I just hadn’t found my comedy yet. And I’m still finding it; I’m still learning a ton, and that’s been thrilling and horrifying every second. And while this journey has been challenging, it’s been the most rewarding process to try and unlearn a lot of those things and learn new things and new skills I didn’t know I had, and didn’t know I wanted to learn, and I’ve loved every single second of it.”
