'New Girl's' Hannah Simone Answered Questions on Reddit, and She Was a Damn Delight

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | November 5, 2013 | Comments ()


After a week off to allow for an episode of The X-Factor (because Fox executives are MONSTERS), New Girl returns tonight with COACH. Damon Wayans, Jr., who was in the pilot episode of New Girl but couldn’t be a series regular due to his commitment to Happy Endings, will be filling the space in the loft vacated by Schmidt during a multi-episode arc that will daringly put two black men ON THE SAME SITCOM. I know, right? And it’s not even UPN.

Ahead of the episode, Hannah Simone — who plays Cece on the show — attended one of Reddit’s AMA’s, and because it wasn’t an Q&A that everyone in the world saw (like they should) I’ve taken the liberty of compiling some of her better, quippier answers, so that you can go into tonight’s episode knowing that the actress behind Cece is as charming and funny as her character. You’re welcome.

Is Schmidt Schmidt outside of being Schmidt?

Only Schmidt would know how to be at Schmitty as Schmidt but that being said there is only one true Schmidt and an actor can’t be Schmidt since Schmidt is Schmidt which leaves us with Schmidt being Schmidt inside and outside of Schmidt.

What’s your very best life advice? Can be about anything… you pick

Stop talking.

Would you fight one horse-sized duck or 100 duck-sized horse?

Hop up on the horse and trample the ducks. No one said it had to be a fair fight.

how often to people walk up to you on the street and call you Cece? and then how often is that followed up by “please get back together with schmidt?

I have legally changed my name to: Cece Pleasegetbacktogetherwithschmidt

Fuck, Marry, Kill: Bruce Willis, Bruce Springsteen, Bruce Lee. Go!

Fuck Bruce. Marry Bruce. Kill Bruce.

Have you ever thought of becoming a cage fighter?

I don’t like to revisit my past.

I’m standing here debating what to eat. Reese’s puffs or brown sugar cinnamon pop tarts?

Always go for the brown sugar.

If you could have a Ben and Jerry’s flavor named after new girl what would it be called and what would it taste like?

Caramel Miracle.

What is something that you have done recently that deserves putting money in a doucebag jar?



Do you like “Schmece” ?

I am a fan of awkweird made up words.

    I'm a guy who actually likes Zooey a lot, and yet I think Hannah Simone is the hotter woman on that show.

  • Batesian

    Well, sure. That's just science.

  • Uriah_Creep

    OK, I understated how much I like Hannah because I didn't want to be seen as a drooling, perverted old man, but here is my true opinion: Hannah Simone is Category H supernova hot.

    Now THAT's science!

  • Wow. I'd been happily ignoring this show, recognizing that some humor is happening. But this creature?! Well...

  • Anthony Hoffman

    Three. Since Taye Diggs will be guesting as well.

  • zeke_the_pig

    'Always go for the brown sugar.'
    Wise and beautiful.

    I once met her in Wholefoods when I was on those motorized carts because I just had a toe surgery. She was super nice and loved that I recognized her. Evidently it does not happen enough times. And I was like " I don't have the business card to give you right now." And she did not get miffed at all. She just smiled and told me "Next time" there was no point to that anecdote. I just wanted to brag.

  • Rebecca Hachmyer

    It's called an anecgloat. You invented them, I coined the term. See what I just did there? That was an explainabrag.

  • Uriah_Creep

    Oh, are we playing inventaword?

  • nosio

    And thus, my girlcrush did grow 3 sizes this day.

  • It really is amazing how good the show is while having two talented actors playing characters who are largely underused. Schmidt moving across the hall has a decidedly 'Friends' feel about it, and I hope they continue to find ways to involve the whole cast equally on a weekly basis, like Friends did.

  • Jennifer Schmennifer

    You can't climb on a horse and trample the ducks because the horses are the size of ducks, and ducks are the size of horses. Get it right, people!!!

  • bastich

    This is what happens when the government doesn't fund Mallard/Equistarian Martial Arts in our public schools!

  • emmalita

    She is charming. I hope they give her more to do than be mad at Schmidt.

  • Malware

    Hannah Simone is also a ambassador for The Pink Daisy Project.

    "This incredible non-profit organization works tirelessly to support young women and mothers with breast cancer."

    People who donate get a chance to go to go hang out on the New Girl set with her. She mentioned it during the reddit AMA.
