CHELSEA’S BACK!

She’s re­turn­ing with her sec­ond Net­flix se­ries, so we asked talk show host Chelsea Han­dler for her view on a few thingsé

Look (UK) - - PROMOTION -

ON EQUAL­ITY

‘i was so sick of be­ing asked the ques­tions :“what’ s it like be­ing the only woman in late-night [tele­vi­sion]?” and “What’s it like be­ing the only woman among men?” i wanted to change that con­ver­sa­tion. When i say women, i don’t mean “women, get rid of the men”. i mean women and men, let’s all get to­gether and be the same thing.’

ON DI­VER­SITY

‘When I was a lit­tle girl grow­ing up, I was jeal­ous of some other girl and my sis­ter said: “There’s room for every­one.” There is room for every­one. It’s nice to step out­side of your­self and say: “I don’t re­ally care about base­ball – make me care.”’

ON COM­EDY

‘if you can find out some­thing the funny way, it tends to res­onate more. i know for me it does. that was re­ally my goal with the show – to teach peo­ple while i’m learn­ing. that’s some­thing i’m re­ally proud of do­ing.’

ON SOCIAL ME­DIA TROLLS

‘Fo­cus on the pos­i­tive rather than the neg­a­tive – I think you root out a lot. I feel like I take it for my­self. I find that all to be a bunch of noise. If you’re ser­vic­ing the peo­ple that don’t like you, then you’re not re­ally do­ing your job, pe­riod.’

Telly-tas­tic: Chelsea

The sec­ond se­ries of Chelsea is avail­able on Net­flix from 14April
