I am mom, wife, actress, producer, activist, designer, Alyssa Milano…

Hi! I’m here! Ask me anything. And don’t forget to tune into Project Runway All Stars on Thursday at 9pm on Lifetime. The designers this season are ridiculously talented.

Do you miss the Charmed period?

Every. Single. Day.
I’m still very close to my crew though.

How do you feel about being mentioned in Guardians of the Galaxy and would you like to appear in that movie franchise?

Holy sh*t!!! How cool was that? YES! Sign me up.

In your opinion would Charmed be a successful show if aired today for the first time?

I’d like to think so. I think the chemistry between us is what made the show so special. And that never goes to of style.

What is the most unexpected/inappropriate thing your kid has said that has shocked or made you laugh out loud?

He asked me if my nipples were buttons.

Was there ever a “turning point” where you thought to yourself “No this life is not for me” or “Yes, that is the life I want?”

Every day I think “this isn’t for me”. I’m terrified for my children to grow up around this business. I was so lucky that I didn’t end up ef’d up. So lucky. I want to protect them from the crazies. But then I think about how much this business has allowed me to do and for that I’m grateful. I just try to take it day by day and take advantage of the opportunities that I’m given and be the absolute best mom that I can be. Hopefully, everything works out the way it is supposed to.

What was your reaction when you found out that Starlord’s ship in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY was named after you?

I thought people were f’ing with me.

Who, in fact, is the boss?

Mona. Duh.

Were you bummed about the cancelling of My Name is Earl?

I was surprised. That show was so fun to do.

If you could work with any Actor/director. Who and why? (dead or alive!)

Michel Gondry! Such an amazing visionary.

What’s your favorite movie?


Are you surprised by the responses your 2 breastfeeding photos have received? What motivated you to share them on Instagram?

I’ve never been the type of person that cares about peoples reactions to what I do or put out there. I feel as long as I stay true to who I am (and I’m okay with who I am) I’m ultimately sharing part of myself. Having said that, I will add that I think it’s interesting that we are in a time where celebs can walk a red carpet in next to nothing and everyone’s just fine with it but if someone posts a breastfeeding picture people have a negative reaction. What does that say about our society? I LOVE breastfeeding my baby. I want to share that part of who I am with my fans and I want it to be easier for women everywhere to feed their babies in public.

How do you stay in shape? Do you lift or pump iron ever or what type of exercises do you do?

I do yoga, pilates, spinning classes and run after my 3 year old.

Can you tell us something cool about Tony Danza? How about Malcolm MacDowell?

Tony is the best! I still get sweet emails from him. And Malcolm was really great too. I had a great time watching him create that character from HUGO POOL.

What’s your biggest regret and what have you learned from it?

My biggest regret is not going to college. I learned that it’s important to stay motivated to learn about all that interests you and to never stop that process.

What are some of your favorite country songs/singers?

PATSY CLINE! That voice kills me.

How did it affect you when you realized that in any given crowd there’s at least a handful that have fantasized about you?

Because of my sparkling personality? 😉

If I, for some strange reason ever ran into you, what would be the best way to charm you?

I’m charmed by humor. Make me laugh and I’m yours.

Which was the most difficult scene in your career?

Any scene where I have to cry. I have to conjure up real emotion because I have no tricks and this takes a toll on your mental state. I dread them.

What’s the best restaurant you have ever eaten at and what did you have?

I love SUGARFISH. Sushi…yum…so good.

How do you feel about Jaycee Dugard using your name when she was in captivity?

It was overwhelming but a great reminder of how you can touch someone’s life without being aware. It’s part of why I love what I do.

What is your favorite charity to donate to, and why does that one mean so much to you?

UNICEF. Because every child deserves a healthy, happy, protected childhood.

What’s your favourite song right now?

Blackbird by The Beatles

Have you ever turned down a role that later on you really wish you’d taken?

Tony Danza once said to me, “you never regret the things you don’t do”. I concur.

Who’s at your dream dinner party?

John Lennon, Jesus, Audrey Hepburn and Elon Musk

If you could give one piece of advice to someone aspiring to make it as a film actor, what would it be?

Have a plan B!

Do you get a lot of mean or perv tweets and how do u deal with them?

I kill them with kindness and send them off with a blessing before I block them. “Be well and God bless!”

What was it like working on Who’s The Boss?

Honestly, it was so long ago I don’t remember most of it.

Do you feel Blessed?
