The Hall Pass star was desperate for work when she first arrived in Hollywood and answered an ad in a newspaper to provide callers with psychic advice - even though she had no skills.
She tells The Hollywood Reporter, "I had a couple of girls call, and they were like, 'What colour shirt am I wearing right now?' And I said, 'I don't know.' And they're like, 'You're not a psychic.'
"I said, 'I have a feeling you're calling me for another reason; that one of you has a boy that you like, and you want to know if he likes you.' She's like, 'Oh my God.' So that was it."
