The Hottie Stop Interviews Lacey Chabert of The Lost Tree

Every single week that we talk to another stunningly sexy actress for The Hottie Stop I find myself gushing over the talent. And this week, I have to add another amazingly beautiful actress to the list. Lacey Chabert was only a young girl when she first found television success on the hit series Party of Five. Over the years however, this terrific actress has appeared in a few horror flicks including BLACK CHRISTMAS and SCARECROW. And she has been very busy doing voiceover work for animation for a number of projects including The Wild Thornberrys as well as Transformers: Rescue Bots and Young Justice.

While we spoke on the phone, we talked about her upcoming horror thriller THE LOST TREE. In the film, she stars opposite Thomas Ian Nicholas (AMERICAN PIE franchise, as well as Party of Five) and Michael Madsen. When it comes to horror, we spoke about working in the genre and about how annoying the constant screaming can be. We also chatted about skydiving, cool flicks that she loves and some of the stunning ladies that shes had the opportunity to work with. She even told me a story about some Hollywood type told her she had a terrible voice when she was only fourteen! What a jerk!

Lacey Chabert is absolutely lovely and has officially become one of my favorite people! I dare you not to fall madly in love with the gorgeous Ms. Chabert! Come on Pixar, give Lacey a call read on and youll see what Im talking about.

How are you?

I am good. Im getting over a really bad cold, so, Im sorry if I keep coughing. I apologize. Ive had it for, like, a week. Weve been shooting out in Vancouver and its freezing and raining. So, I dont think thats helping my cough.

Indeed...

Yesterday was snowing and I was soaking wet from the rain and it was just freezing and I thought, Great. Now were moving on to pneumonia.

What are you working on out there?

Im working on a horror film, but its actually really fun. It is cold and Im just not used to it. Being from California for so long, you just kind of forget, but the people here are comfortable in 30 or 40 degree weather and my little California body is freezing.

Well, with The Lost Tree, what attracted you to that project?

Well, Thomas Ian Nicholas is someone that I worked with on Party of Five years ago and hes been a friend ever since. He called to let me know about the project and he let me know that he was starring in it and producing it and I love when I get the opportunity to support and collaborate with my friends, so I was happy to reunite with him. Its a really interesting story and a great script and I havent seen anything from the film yet, but when we were shooting, I had a feeling that it would end up a really good film.

Well, you know theres a fun little trailer and intro to it on YouTube.

I honestly have not seen that.

Youre getting thrown around on the floor and some horrible stuff is happening.

(Laughs)

Is that fun? I mean, obviously in real life, you dont usually want that to happen because that would be bad, but do you enjoy playing these kinds of roles, kind of like BLACK CHRISTMAS, to be in terror, but knowing that youll be safe in a couple of hours?

Yeah. You know, I always wondered before I did a scary movie if it would actually be scary during filming, in the moment when youre running from something, and its really not, obviously. Everythings so technical and youre trying to hit your mark and remember your lines and pace yourself through the film so that youre not the same level of fear and intensity the whole, entire time, because then, it would just get boring with a whole bunch of crying and screaming the whole time.

Well, I was doing a little research on you and I was watching you on Marie Osmond. It seems that this year has been your time to overcome your fears, I take it?

Yeah, actually. It really was. It started last September on my birthday. I was turning 30 and I really wanted to celebrate and do something exciting, so I went skydiving. To me thats incredible, because heights absolutely terrify me.

What was it like?

Its really hard to describe what its like, actually. I was terrified and by terrified...I could not breathe, thought-I-was-going-to-faint terrified. Its something I always wanted to do, but I never thought Id actually work up enough courage to go through with it and I decided I was going to and I wasnt gonna look back and the next thing I knew, my toes are hanging off the edge of the plane and Im looking down 14,000 feet and I just thought to myself in that moment, If I actually overcome this fear and pry my fingers from the door of this plane and jump with this instructor, I wont have to worry about the day to day stuff in my life ever again.

Thats a good point.

It was the most exhilarating experience. Theres such trust in the instructor thats strapped to you and I just felt so free. I mean, youre falling through the clouds. Its definitely a once in a lifetime experience. I dont think I need to do it again, but Im so glad I did.

Thats so cool. It also seems like a great way to re-evaluate where you are in life, but 30, youre still so young.

(Laughs) Let me tell you about my thirties. My twenties were great, Ive had a great life, but I think in my thirties, I think especially with women, you start to feel a little more comfortable in your own skin, with who you are and you make peace with yourself.

Youre from Mississippi, correct? You were a child actor and you came out here really young, I mean, you were in Les Miserables for Gods sake!

Yeah, thats where I started.

Well, I gotta say, Ive met and interviewed a lot of people whove grown up in the business and there is sometimes a sense of entitlement. I dont get that from you.

Oh, thank you. I dont feel that. I think since Ive been in the business for so long, that just seems like too much. There are always ups and downs in a career and life in general and Im just so thankful that Im still working. A lot of people dont get that opportunity, especially from being a child actor to introducing yourself into the world as an adult. Theres definitely some struggle and hurtles to go through when people have seen you grow up. Im just so thankful to be working and I love my job so much that I...Im sorry. Im rambling.

No, I love it.

Im just grateful. I started out in theatre and then I was doing a soap opera and commercials during the day and I think while thats a lot for someone to handle, it gave me a great work ethic and Im grateful that my parents were always very protective over me and tried to teach me how to balance things in my life. Im just so happy that Im still working.

Now, you dont seem like the club type. Are you that type or would you rather just hang at home and watch a movie.

Im more of the type to hang at home, have a nice dinner, watch a movie kind of girl, but for my 30th birthday, we all went to Vegas. I let my hair down and we partied all night. There might have been some dancing on a table.

(Laughs) That sounds fun!

Yeah. You know, going out to a club with some girlfriends every now and then is great, but ordering in, hanging out and watching a movie and staying comfortable is great.

Well, speaking of movies, youve definitely done some cool ones, but what are some of your favorites?

Oh, my goodness. You know people ask me that all the time and that is a hard question. Theres so many movies that I love. You know, I grew up loving movies like THE GOONIES, STEEL MAGNOLIAS is one of my favorites. I love GOOD WILL HUNTING, SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE. Romantic comedies and dramas are great. I dont know. I love movies. I just appreciate good storytelling. This year, I loved PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER.

So fantastic, right?

Yeah, its a great story and it has something that everyone can relate to.

I agree. Now, I have to say, one thing I did notice right away watching some of your interviews and speaking to you now - is that you have a terrific voice, which makes sense because you have a really impressive voice acting resume. I was just blown away.

Thank you! You know, Ill never forget; I was fourteen years old and I was in a meeting with someone in the business who I will not name because I am a lady.

Good for you.

I was going through puberty and my voice was incredibly high pitched and, not that I have a little husky voice now, but, back then it was very high pitched and this person asked me, Gosh, is that your real voice? Its just awful. You have such a high pitched voice. Its just awful! and that quickly ended the meeting.

You were fourteen? That is horrible.

I left the room in tears and I just could not believe that someone could be so cruel and about two weeks after that, I landed THE WILD THORNBERRIES and I thought, Thank God for this horrible, annoying, high pitched voice. It got me a lot of jobs and a lot of money.

Ill tell you right now, there is nothing annoying about your voice.

Youre very sweet. It probably was very annoying. I was going through a change, though. Everyones voice changes through their teenage years, but that was such a good life lesson. I didnt like my voice at the time and it was something that I was very self-conscious about until I realized that I could use that voice, whether people liked it or not, in what I did and thats when I started doing a lot of voice over work in animation and right now Im doing RESCUE BOX for HUB. I love animation. Its such a fun craft. You can literally do anything and your range is so much larger when you dont have to consider your body.

Oh, cool. Well, recently, in film, animated movies have been so awesome. Look at PIXAR and all these great movies.

Oh, I would love to do a voice in a PIXAR movie. Thats a dream of mine.

Lets make it happen! The beauty of this column is that we get to talk to beautiful actresses like yourself, but who are some other beautiful actresses that youre inspired by?

Good question. I mean, Ive worked with Neve Campbell for six years during PARTY OF FIVE.

Shes great.

Shes absolutely beautiful inside and out.

I can imagine. I get that from her.

Shes a very grounded, lovely person. Sometimes, in our relationship, months will go by where we dont speak, but it doesnt matter. Were like sisters. Shell always be family to me. I got to work with Gena Rowlands. That was such an amazing moment for me and shes such an elegant, beautiful woman. Amanda Seyfried and Rachel McAdams, for sure.

They seem like such cool people.

I also got to work with Jennifer Garner in GHOSTS OF GIRLFRIENDS PAST and she is such a beautiful person.

Oh, yeah, shes cool.

Shes so normal and down to earth and I just loved her, and I loved working with Mark Waters, I got to work with him on MEAN GIRLS and GHOSTS OF GIRLFRIENDS PAST and hes such a talented comedic director. Hes wonderful.

She's so much more than "the poor man's Jennifer Love Hewitt". She was a lovely-sounding Zatanna on "Young Justice", her voice has lots of character. Very cool interview, this column just makes me more and more jealous of JimmyO every time!
