Anna Faris found comedy skills during embarrassing lunch break

Anna Faris realized her talent for comedy after an embarrassing butt-baring moment in New York.

The actress has made a name for herself as one of Hollywood's funniest women through her roles in the Scary Movie franchise and the highly-anticipated new Sacha Baron Cohen film, The Dictator.


Anna Faris now admits she discovered the power of comedy when she was caught in a compromising situation during her lunch break while working in the Big Apple.


She tells Manhattan magazine, "In college one of my jobs was as a receptionist, and during my lunch breaks I'd wander around the city. So, on this particularly beautiful day, I was out walking in a dress, wearing my backpack, feeling great.


"But then I realized I was attracting a lot of looks, really getting checked out, which really made me angry, although I bet I loved it, even if I wouldn't admit it. So, I'm scowling and stomping around when an older lady in a van pulls over and yells, 'Hey girlie, your a** is showing!' My dress had gotten hiked up under my backpack, giving full view of my... granny panties.


"My a** is showing, and I'm condemning a city full of lecherous men! That's what I think (of) when I think about comedy and what it is."
