Gillian Jacobs Talks Being A Feminist

Gillian Jacobs posed for the cover of Bust magazine's December/January 2015 issue, out on newsstands now.  


Jacobs, 32, opened up about her childhood: "Apparently, my elementary school called my mom and told her that I was talking to myself on the playground and I had no friends. My mom says I was a dramatic child and that I made a big production out of everything, so she thought I would like acting. She signed me up for this class and I just fell in love with it from the start."

Gillian also shared with the outlet about comedy: "No one would hire me for (comedy) 'cause everything I'd done was a serious, heavy drama. I think unless someone has seen you do something, they can't imagine you doing it."

As for being a feminist, Jacobs was quoted as saying: "I definitely still consider myself a feminist. I just think I'm surrounded by more people now who share these same ideas. When you're a little kid and you're wanting to talk about equal pay, you're not gonna find a lot of other little kids who are equally passionate about it. And I think my response to that was to become very strident about it. I think I understood as a kid that I could probably have more friends if I stopped talking about those sorts of things, but like Britta, it made me talk about them more."
