‘This yeast infection pregnancy way up’ creator and star aisling bea discovered paul rudd’s secret to eternal youth

If you aren’t in love with aisling bea yet that means you’ve got the six excellent episodes of this way up yeast infection pregnancy on hulu to watch. Go, do it now! Because the creator and star of the silly, relatable, and touching series also stars in this fall’s netflix series living with yourself, opposite paul rudd, and you better brace yourself to fall double in love yeast infection pregnancy with her then.

When the chatty irish comedian and actress stopped by the yeast infection pregnancy decider offices in new york city last month, we had much to discuss: especially those comparisons of her show to fleabag. Here, bea explains the right (and very wrong) way to compare the two shows, shares a nightmare jacuzzi experience that will leave you blinking yeast infection pregnancy (and chris O’dowd was there too), and walks us through running a green set (call her if you want to do the same!). Oh, and she may have spilled paul rudd’s secret to “eternal youth” but good luck implementing this one in your own life.

Phoebe [waller-bridge] and my shows do exist within the same demographic: people that like her show are probably going to like yeast infection pregnancy my show, and so in that way, it’s completely okay to compare. It’s that there are no other shows that it’s compared to.

In another way, I’m extremely lucky because apart from catastrophe with sharon [horgan], but it’s not sharon’s face on the poster, ultimately it’s my show, I have no immediately inherited audience. If the paul rudd show [ living with yourself, on netflix in october] came out first and this came out after [there’d be a point of reference], but I don’t have that, especially in america. So in a way, I’m very lucky that phoebe’s done all of this work that I get to yeast infection pregnancy piggyback on an audience. I think also for americans, they’re not used to having the length of a film, six episodes [each 30 minutes or less] to watch. That’s just like one episode of the good wife and yeast infection pregnancy I’m like yeah, and it took me a year to write them!

I hope the people that love her show love my yeast infection pregnancy show. One review recently, literally that’s all it was [comparing the two shows] and that annoyed me because they compared the love stories. That’s ridiculous because you’re saying, oh they also have a relationship in this one. You don’t compare catastrophe to house of cards because there are yeast infection pregnancy two marriages in it. It really does boggle the mind when journalists do start yeast infection pregnancy picking out bits of it that are as old as yeast infection pregnancy time. A relationship, a family, and you’re going, well, very similar here. Are you fucking kidding me? Say it if you want, that they’re two women who don’t need men going through things other than issues with yeast infection pregnancy men in london. Say it if that’s what you mean. We don’t need men in the shows and I think that’s what’s freaking everyone out, that romance isn’t the front of either of our shows and people yeast infection pregnancy are like, well then what do we do with them?

It’s more complex than ‘don’t compare me to fleabag,’ because there’s a direct comparison there: we’re both roughly the same age, there is a crossover in terms of experiences that people yeast infection pregnancy are going through nowadays and that makes sense to me yeast infection pregnancy and I do think our audiences would be very similar. But there are little incremental microaggressions in some of the yeast infection pregnancy things people say. I don’t mind when people are like, ‘if you like fleabag, you’ll like this.’ that is very different to, oh, another show where a woman has an ex and also yeast infection pregnancy is trying to deal with things. Maybe that’s every fucking person’s life, and also you can really highlight the “fucking” there in caps.

I’m not sure I have the verbosity yet to totally yeast infection pregnancy talk about it but I’m collecting thoughts and a lot of us are. At some point you’re supposed to go, ‘oh, they’re critiquing,’ but you’re like, ‘no, they’re insulting.’ there’s a difference when someone doesn’t like your work and you think, ‘oh, that’s a pity.’ but then you’re like, this is an insult to my gender the way you’re writing this. You’re putting someone in a box.

Yesterday someone said, ‘you’re very outspoken about things like abortion,’ and I’m like, no I’m not. I’m literally speaking. It’s not outspoken that we don’t think women should die in a hospital. I don’t find that outspoken. I remember talking on a podcast and someone said I yeast infection pregnancy was angry on it. I don’t remember being angry at all and I wasn’t, but the idea of pushing forward a subject and not yeast infection pregnancy letting it lie suddenly becomes angry. I know a lot of people of color have the yeast infection pregnancy same issues as well, what gets perceived. I don’t know the answer.

I would say I understand when people say it gives yeast infection pregnancy me the same feeling as that show. I’m like, thank you, wow, amazing. Phoebe’s one of the great heroes and a beautiful writer. So I understand it with my show. It’s selling your show to the right people, that’s how it works with algorithms. It’s the other side of it where you start to yeast infection pregnancy minimize experiences. It’s like when you write books with a female protagonist yeast infection pregnancy and call it chick lit. You’ve minimized the experience of women. Like it’s not supposed to be the daily experience of women, but just a holiday read for people who don’t read much. Then you’re diminishing someone for reading in some way.

She’s got an incredible discipline and a work ethic. Where I have lots of ideas, she has lots of discipline. I might have a million ideas and roughly get round yeast infection pregnancy to one. It’s not like I don’t work hard, but I find it easier to work on 17 things. She will do seven things and do them really well. Her work ethic is naturally in her, she really dedicates all of her time. She’ll sit down and do notes, she’ll properly look at stuff. I think she’s a lot less sensitive than me to things as yeast infection pregnancy well. Sharon’s one of the few people, if I have a gut instinct on something but I’m not sure, I’ll take whatever she says. I’m like, oh great, now I don’t have to try and have a good instinct. She’ll just tell me, ‘that’s crap,’ or ‘that’s absolutely fine, you’re overthinking that’, ‘no, that is shit.’ I trust her opinion implicitly on stuff.

With her character in this, I needed to make it not sharon in catastrophe. I wanted to show the bit people generally don’t see of her but I see as her friend, the bit that’s an amazing mother and looks after people and is yeast infection pregnancy quite a carer and quite sensitive to things like bad yeast infection pregnancy news in the newspaper. It’s another side of sharon I wanted to show in yeast infection pregnancy the show.

I wanted a bit of rom-com in it. Those are the things I like watching. I love watching are they gonna get together and I yeast infection pregnancy could watch it a million times in anything. It’s so interesting to see people dance around each other, especially two hurt or broken people and to see how yeast infection pregnancy they might be good for each other or might be yeast infection pregnancy really bad. With the richard and etienne (dorian grover) relationship, I wanted to show male grief and the silence. There’s a purposeful reason etienne is the age he is yeast infection pregnancy and he’s not 7. He’s at an age where it’s very difficult to speak about emotions if you’re a young guy and tobias’ character doesn’t know him that well. To see two men, an almost man and a man who’s set in his ways and lives on his own, suddenly have this child come into his life, that’s what I wanted to show with that. Aine comes in [with] so many words and a cultural shock. Tobias is very english and she’s very irish and fills that silence with noise. So that’s what I wanted to show there. You might want them to get together but are they yeast infection pregnancy healthy together? And that is a question for the mood board for yeast infection pregnancy series 2.

You’re like, are you making a soup with strangers where we’re all adding our asshole broths? A bit of me is nervous about jacuzzis, sure. I prefer a steam room if I’m honest and then again, are you just sweating out in someone else’s bacteria? But I think you can overthink about that as well. Does anyone else feel sick?

Myself and a group of friends, the irish crowd in LA, one of them was chris O’dowd, we all went out to joshua tree and rented a yeast infection pregnancy place. I was the only girl that wanted to get into yeast infection pregnancy the hot tub and it was not a sexy scene yeast infection pregnancy with my big unsexy swimming suit on. We all got in and the girlfriends and wives were yeast infection pregnancy like, ‘oh maybe we’ll join you later.’ we were in there going, ‘oh well, you know they’re babies.’ and I was like…’are anyone else’s eyes sore?’ and they were like, ‘yeah, my eyes are a bit sore, maybe it’s the dust of the desert,’ and I was like, yeah okay. And then we slowly realized that whoever had cleaned it yeast infection pregnancy last had probably put three times the amount of chlorine yeast infection pregnancy into the hot tub and we all came out with yeast infection pregnancy chemical burn eyes and rashes all over our skin. The next day we couldn’t go in the sun because we were covered in yeast infection pregnancy a chemical itchy rash. So that’s my thoughts on jacuzzis.

I don’t get it a lot generally, especially when you’re in stand-up, you can’t get freaked out by people because you’re looking for the human mess in everyone that you yeast infection pregnancy meet. As a writer, you look for the story inside someone rather than the yeast infection pregnancy idea of them. But with amy poehler I didn’t do that. I was auditioning for a pilot, it was just another audition during pilot season and I yeast infection pregnancy didn’t know she was gonna be in the room. It was like a teen meeting harry styles. I went into the room and you get used to yeast infection pregnancy doing your smile, and I was like, oh jesus. Because she’s responsible for helping my career in the way that yeast infection pregnancy she’s forged stuff for people. Maybe michelle obama I might get like that too. It was like doing a play for your parents and yeast infection pregnancy I was like, well now I’m going to read my lines! And then when we were doing the callback, I could see she’s not able to be friends with me.

What I realized yesterday when I saw a secret trailer, I auditioned for that job, was flown to new york for a screen test and yeast infection pregnancy then I moved to new york two weeks later. It all happened so quickly. I got here and we were filming and by the yeast infection pregnancy time I got to christmas, I was writing [ this way up] every night. I went to film my show straight after I flew yeast infection pregnancy back and had the read-through the next day. And until I landed back [this week, I finally realized] that I lived in new york, was in this gorgeous show and it’s coming out. This way up was such a big thing for me yeast infection pregnancy to do that it sort of canceled out the memory. And now that that’s winding down in a way, I’m like, oh I forgot! I was excited about that nine months ago, I forgot to be re-excited about it. Also, I’m just an actor in it and it’s nice that I have one job in that, whereas this one I’m so sensitive to it and how it goes and yeast infection pregnancy what it means when people genuinely like it.

I implemented it and then the team around me were yeast infection pregnancy very supportive of it so they took the idea and yeast infection pregnancy ran with it. My sister is a costume designer and she’s published a thing called the costume directory which is yeast infection pregnancy aimed at making the costume industry more ecofriendly. A lot of people don’t want to share contacts but she’s like, here’s all of them for free, they’re eco-friendly. She was able to do that in things like beauty yeast infection pregnancy and the beast and a lot of the movies she’s been on since. So our whole ethos with the show was secondhand first yeast infection pregnancy but never secondary to the vision of it. We were eco at all costs as long as the yeast infection pregnancy show still comes out looking as well, but it’s just a bit more effort by everyone. What I’m finding on certain shows is they try to do yeast infection pregnancy it but never ask for feedback from each department. They don’t ask the camera dept what’s easy for them, do you have a cup holder for your cups, how do we reduce the waste of certain things like yeast infection pregnancy the waste of time, waste of energy? If you don’t actually ask people, it’s such a silly idea. I’m on so many shoots where they try and implement yeast infection pregnancy different green things, different bins and they don’t explain to people what the bins are. It was really important to me because I can’t complain about it on other jobs and then run yeast infection pregnancy my own set and not do it, so you have to put your money where your mouth yeast infection pregnancy is. I’m not saying we got it totally perfectly but we yeast infection pregnancy garnered enough around. I asked for feedback from the team and then next yeast infection pregnancy time when we do a series 2 we go, okay last time this didn’t work.

Simple examples like our plastic bottles had to be hand-washed so you couldn’t put them in a dishwasher and that’s not totally easy for people when they’re busy. Little things like that but that has to get told yeast infection pregnancy to you and you have to have an open space yeast infection pregnancy where you allow feedback. That people aren’t scared to go, “hi, I’ve only been on the show for two days but yeast infection pregnancy I found this.” I think some people don’t create an environment where you can genuinely give feedback. That matters to the ethos on set because if you’re pushing an agenda on someone, it doesn’t work. We had meat-free mondays, we had composting, but you also have to make sure the locations people yeast infection pregnancy can deal with bringing the different bins and recycling around. It’s such a holistic set but I can’t do it on my own.

And people want to now, that’s the difference, people really want to. It’s like on set when they do healthy options they’re like, “the men won’t like it.” but men are like, we want to be healthy too, it’s not a specific female thing. So people want to do it more. Anyone wants to run a green set, come to me and we all have to share what yeast infection pregnancy we learn as well.
