Mary-Louise Parker nearly sets fire to house in Golden Globes joy
Weeds star Mary-Louise Parker has revealed she was so surprised that she got a Golden Globe nomination last week that she nearly set her kitchen on fire.
She explained: “I was in the kitchen making breakfast for my kids. I was making waffles, which almost caught fire. I was on the phone for a long time and then I noticed it was really smoky.”
“It was kind of fun. My kids like it when the smoke alarm goes off. It’s loud, and exciting, and my son gets to pick up the broom and hit the ceiling with it.”
Mary-Louise has been short-listed in the Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical TV show category.
