Busy Philipps Shares the Mindset That Pushed Her to Success

3 88 42

Armed with gigantic hoop earrings and a leopard-print hair ribbon that matches her high heels, Busy Philipps playfully struts out to her intro music and poses for her fans before falling into her trademark talk-show position: seated on the couch with her legs tucked underneath her. It’s the position you might assume before launching into an hours-long catch-up session with a friend, and that’s what Philipps’s show on E!, Busy Tonight, is meant to feel like.

On a recent episode, after sharing her thoughts on Netflix’s cancelling One Day at a Time -- which Philipps protested by sending out an airplane with a banner that read “Renew One Day at a Time!” -- she covers Cardi B’s latest Instagram Story, the college admissions scandal and more.

“I have full conversations in my head and then get annoyed when people have no idea what I’m talking about -- puffins, am I right?” she deadpans.

Philipps hosted a live edition of Busy Tonight onstage at SXSW 2019, featuring actors Nick Kroll and Retta -- along with a couple of rescue pigs -- as guests. Entrepreneur caught up with Philipps in an exclusive interview after the show to talk authenticity, impostor syndrome and success.

This interview has been edited for length and clarity.
