Rather than, “I’m going to Café X since amazing sexy woman works there,” think, “I’m going to Café X because I’m hungry for a sandwich…and it would be nice to also see amazing sexy woman, too.” Even if you’re really thinking the former, telling yourself this will give you a less-desperate and not-as-inexplicably-obsessed-with-sandwiches air.She really is a killer charades person — really good at it! Almost a little too much, according to Denton: Dana and I were in Bree’s kitchen completely doing it on the kitchen counter and we shot it almost completely naked — like, with very, very little clothes on — because they wanted it to look like we had nothing on.Those scenes are so important because it depends who you do it with and how comfortable you are with each other.That would have certainly gotten a lot of reaction because we didn’t do a whole lot of that.
