Many people see Anna Faris as a blond, with big lips and a perfect body, and although she does have all those attributes, they go along quiet nicely with a strong passion for make fun films. As we’ve seen in roles like Observe and Report, she’s not afraid to play with her looks and in many ways make fun of the cliche she represents. In the recent interview we had with her for Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, she talked about a few upcoming projects she’s working on and her interest in producing films.

First she revealed that she will will be working on the new Alvin and the Chipmunks sequel (we all need a paycheck)…

“I am doing Alvin and the Chipmunks 2, the sequel. I am a Chipette along with Amy Poehler and Christina Applegate. That has been challenging for different reasons, much more technical reasons. You have to slow your cadence down in a specific way, because they speed everything up. That has been really interesting, but the movie looks so cute.”

In addition to talking about the latest sequel, she talked a bit about what role she would really like play, that of a producer. She like many actresses gets sick of waiting around for the right roles, (hence the above project), so why not take on a role where you get to have some say in the movies getting made. She worked as an executive producer on her film, The House Bunny, and she would like to continue the trend.

Here is what she had to say about a few of her future plans…

“I sold a movie to Paramount. Right now, it is called Gold Diggers. It is, sort of, a female-buddy comedy. Then a couple other things that I am producing and trying to get made, which is a long, hard road. I produced The House Bunny, and I found it so rewarding. It felt so good to have a little control over your career in this crazy industry. So, I want to do more of that…I feel like if I am not part of the creative process, I won’t be able to be in the kind of movies I want to make. I won’t be able to play the types of characters that I want to play. I want to play funny women. Crazy people. I want to play crazy people.”
