Will Alanis Morissette and Nip/Tuck's Liz Make Beautiful Music Together?

Source: TvGuide by Mary Murphy


TV Guide: How did you get the role?
Morissette: [Nip/Tuck creator] Ryan Murphy was speaking with my agent, and said that when he had written the role of Poppy, he thought of me.

TV Guide: Why you?
Morissette: I had a lesbian role on Sex and the City where I ended up kissing Sarah Jessica Parker. This, though, feels like a more fleshed-out relationship, more than that cameo.

TV Guide: You kiss Liz, right? [Maffia described it as "just a playful one, no tongue."]
Morissette: The kiss felt so natural; there was nothing uncomfortable about it. We live in a homophobic culture — if it were two men they would be judged to the nth degree, but with women it is "hot." What I love about this is this seems real.

TV Guide: Have you ever had plastic surgery?
Morissette: No, I haven't. I am 32. I think it can be a slippery slope.

TV Guide: What is it like working with Dylan Walsh and Julian McMahon?
Morissette: Dylan's character is haunting and present and vulnerable, but macho at the same time. Julian... he just cracks me up. He is somehow attractive underneath that despicable character.
