» Allison Janney on Competing for Parts With James Gandolfini and Why She Wishes She Could Write

Allison Janney in Liberal Arts

What can you tell me about your reunion with your daughter Juno, Ellen Page, in Lynn Shelton's next film, "Touchy Feely?"

She's lovely, but unfortunately Ellen and I did not get to do one scene together. We exchanged emails and said how excited we were that we were gonna get to see each other again. Lynn is so lovely to work with. She's very improvisational -- just sort of knowing what the scene's about and just, let it go. It was challenging for me because I don't think of myself as a great improvisational actor. I like to go with whatever happens in the moment, and I can play around, but there were some moments that I couldn't [laughs]. I was playing a massage therapist, and I was giving Rosemarie [DeWitt] these oils, and I said, "Take this. This is my own mixture." And she says, "What's in it?" And I say, "Never mind what's in it. It's my special secret recipe, so just take it!" [Laughs] Don't freaking ask me what's in it. I can't make that up on the spot, I'm not a writer. In the film, I play a Reiki therapist. I actually had to learn how to do that, and I always hated Reiki therapy, which Lynn thought was hysterical, because I had to play a Reiki therapist and I just don't buy into it. It's the most frustrating experience, to have someone not really lay their hands on you, or just sort of hover above you. I'm like, are you kidding me? This is a joke. Put your hands on me, you gotta get your hands in there, dig in there. So that was kind of fun for me to get to play. I had a couple of sessions to learn how to do it and what it was.
