Rolling Stone's yearly issue dedicated to Women Shaping the Future will feature Natasha Lyonne. After Lyonne's photo shoot for the special women's issue, she took part in the publication's YouTube series called Say Anything.

The American Pie star is seen sliding onto a brown leather couch, ready to answer the magazine's rapid-fire questions. The first question Lyonne reads aloud from the card, “If I hadn’t been a child actor…” and tossed the card aside. The actress has clearly brought her personality in front of this camera.

Netflix's The Russian Doll actress answers, “I would have had a much better shot at getting involved in NASA,” she starts.

“One of the main things I saw on the entry form was: ‘Not currently accepting applications from child actors.’ So it was a real non-starter for them, and my dreams died.”

When asked about her favorite breakfast order, Lyonne seemed slightly stumped. She had to pause to gather her thoughts, eventually reporting that she doesn't care much for ordering in her life.

“First of all, I don’t get to do a ton of ordering in my life,” she begins. “I maybe don’t believe in it, on a sort of karmic level. If I’m doing well, I get involved in some sort of smoothie situation."

"If I’m not, lunch appears and I’m like, ‘Who’s eating salmon at 10 a.m.?’ And then I’m like, ‘Oh, I see. It’s 2 p.m. Joke’s on me.'” wrapped-up the red-headed and unapologetic Orange Is the New Black actress.

Advice to Young Men...?

When Rolling Stone presented her with the next question, which asked for her advice to the young men out there, Lyonne got slightly confused. She looks at the camera, seeming to ask us, the audience, “What is a young man?”.

When asked about her first role in a feature film back in 1986, she had a good time with her response. Playing Opal in Pee-Wee's Playhouse clearly had an impact on her jump into showbiz. When she replied, she thought of all the other little ones out there. She said,

“Get out there kid. You’re six years old. You’re living in a playhouse. You’re spending all day looking in dinosaur holes. Get a job, kid! You’re six!”

The series of surrealistic activities is what Lyonne finds the best part of the business she's crafted. “It’s very funny to watch everyone run around with a sense of imaginary crisis,” she said.

When probed about what the worst thing is about the business, Lyonne replies with much thought, “The way it smashes dreams.”
