Got a Girl Crush Magazine Outtakes: Jenny Slate
Photos by MEG WACHTER
The first time I (hi, it’s Meg) saw Marcel the Shell with Shoes On, I was smitten. But once I learned who did the voice of the sassy one-eyed shell, affection was replaced with infatuation.
I knew Jenny lived in Brooklyn, but also that she was a rising star of her own right despite her short run on Saturday Night Live….so I tweeted her and hoped for the best. But, to my surprise and a lot of finagling, Jenny graciously allowed me to come over and hang out at her place. We drank copious amounts of coffee (and I ate some of the infamous muffins she makes), talked about boyfriends and about how underrated Jem and the Holograms was as a feminist tv show. The immediacy of how intelligent and brilliantly funny Jenny is disarming.
