Two names that I think now become part of lexicon of American girls names that I don't think either one of them were really prevalent before. You meet so many 15 and 16-year old girls whose names are Justine and Mallory now that it's interesting. She was amazing. She came from a acting background in the sense that she and her brother Jason Bateman are both talented actors. We immediately bonded. Our three-year age difference shrunk over time, so we got closer over time. She was fantastic. She was nominated for an Emmy, and she didn't win, and she was nominated again, and I was really sad that she didn't win. She did work that was undervalued. She would set me up and I come back with something. There is a generous way to do that, and an ungenerous way to do that. But she would set up lines that were beautiful. She would talk about her character's boyfriend, "Nick and I--it's like we've one heart, we've one mind." She would leave it out there, and I could just wait and wait and say, "Who's using it tonight?" That kind of partnership, that kind of willingness to make the thing work. She was tremendously talented. It was probably difficult for her to be that attractive and that successful and that young, but I think she did a pretty good job at it. She was always fantastic to work with. Hide

Fox Show (2013)] My view of life is colored by humor and looking at the best in any situation. One of the things I love about the show is that it gives me the opportunity to tell people who have disabilities or different challenges that they deal with, that you can step back into life. You can be a part of life. You just have to allow for the facts of your situation. Instead of hiding that or being in denial about it, put it out there. That's what I'm doing. Hide
