Share an interesting fact about your life?
Jennifer: I used to fly in a helicopter daily for work. And I was an extra on the movie Hot Tub Time Machine. There was actually a scene that we kept filming that was never part of the movie where John Cusak runs around the chalet with a fork in his eye, and he pushes through another girl and me and ends up on the floor in front of us. It was cool that we got to do many takes with him. Too bad, it’s nowhere in the movie.
