THE FUNNY GIRL NEXT DOOR

Cosmo chats with the In­dian-ori­gin ac­tress who’s a hit on Char­lie Sheen’s TV show Anger Man­age­ment, and is mak­ing her way to Bol­ly­wood soon.

Cosmopolitan (India) - - COSMO INTERVIEW - By Me­her Bajwa

She’s been voted one of the sex­i­est women in the world, has an Os­car nom­i­nated short film un­der her belt, has mas­tered the art of great comic tim­ing, and you’ve prob­a­bly watched her play one of Char­lie Sheen’s su­per at­trac­tive (and slightly flaky) pa­tients on Com­edy Cen­tral’s Anger Man­age­ment. Sim­ply put, Noureen DeWulf has caught our at­ten­tion!

“Char­lie Sheen is just a re­ally nice guy, to be hon­est... You can’t ask for more than that!”

COSMO: What’s it like, work­ing with Char­lie Sheen?

NOUREEN DEWULF: “Char­lie Sheen is just a re­ally nice guy, to be hon­est. He’s a kind and fun-lov­ing per­son. He’s su­per funny and has the whole comedic tim­ing thing down. You can’t ask for more than that!”

C: You play the very flaky, yet to­tally glam­orous Lacey on the show. Which part of your char­ac­ter do you iden­tify with?

ND: “I’m not sure if it’s a good or bad thing but I iden­tify a lot with Lacey. Lacey is in LA and so am I, she’s a celebu­tante and a pop­u­lar so­cialite. She’s very fash­ion for­ward too, and those are the things I feel I have in com­mon with her. Ob­vi­ously, her anger and rage are what sep­a­rate Lacey from my­self. On the flip side, there’s just so many things to do with a char­ac­ter that’s as volatile as her, and she kinda makes peo­ple want to watch her. I know I do!”

C: Lacey is al­ways go­ing through some kind of guy drama. What’s your take on that?

ND: “I’d prob­a­bly tell her to just chill out! You know she’s got a lot of guys that she goes through and she re­ally likes the party scene. So my ad­vice would just be to chill out, know what you got, don’t go chas­ing guys and let them come to you.”

C: And what’s the best re­la­tion­ship ad­vice you could give Cosmo girls?

ND: “I’m in a happy re­la­tion­ship right now and I’d prob­a­bly say don’t ever set­tle. Wait un­til the right per­son comes along. While you’re wait­ing, spend some

“...don’t ever set­tle. Wait un­til the right per­son comes along... Get to know your­self first.”

time alone and get to know your­self first. Make your­self that fun, awe­some per­son that you’d want to hang out with, and then you’re bound to at­tract other fun peo­ple just like you.”

C: Tell us about your per­sonal style. Is it sim­i­lar to Lacey’s?

ND: “Well, Lacey shows a lot more skin than I do. I think I dress more stylishly and con­ser­va­tively than her. I’m ob­sessed with the same de­sign­ers that she wears though, like Hel­mut Lang, Cavalli and Louis Vuit­ton, but I choose dif­fer­ent pieces for my­self. ”

C: Do you ever feel ner­vous go­ing on set? Got a con­fi­dence se­cret?

ND: “For the first cou­ple of days, I do get ner­vous be­cause I work with a lot of big stars and I don’t know how it’s go­ing to be. The thing I al­ways tell my­self is ‘there’s a rea­son they chose you out of thou­sands and thou­sands of peo­ple’, and that re­ally helps me with con­fi­dence.”
