Extra Consideration given to person possessing:
Alecia Moore, better known as
Grammy-winning singer Pink,
makes her acting debut in Thanks
for Sharing. But the 34-year-old
isn t pursuing other roles. She
isn t even in a rush to make more
"I don t know what I m going
to do from here," she said during
a break from her Truth About Love
tour to promote her first film.
"I don t know if I ll do anything
right away or maybe I ll just make
another baby. I don t know. Maybe
I did what I was supposed to do...I
would have just continued to do
(entertainment) forever, but now
I could see myself scrubbing the
floors in a preschool bathroom. I
could totally see that."
Her daughter, Willow, starts pre-
school next year.
First, though, is the exhilaration
that comes with successfully doing
something new. After turning
down offers to portray a "convict,
runaway, the girl that beat some-
body up, the girl that stops some-
body from getting beat up," Moore
took on the challenge of playing
a character writer-director Stuart
Blumberg actually based on her.
"I had this idea for this female
character who was like Pink,"
Blumberg said. "Who was
tough...on the outside and sensitive
and kind of vulnerable on the
inside. Sometimes it just helps to
have somebody in mind to make
you hone and just have a really
He asked her to audition
"because we were a little scared,"
but she nailed it.
Moore touched her heart when
she said she was drawn to Blum-
berg s story of sex addicts seeking
recovery because of how many
friends she s personally lost to
addiction. Among an ensemble
cast that includes Mark Ruffalo,
Gwyneth Paltrow and Tim Rob-
bins, she plays Dede, a tattooed
hairdresser whose confessional
monologue at a sex addicts 12-
step group leads to an important
relationship with one of its mem-
bers. Still, just because she was
playing a character she inspired
doesn t mean it was easy.
"It was not a stretch, but it also
wasn t me and it wasn t my story,
so it was a challenge for me
because I ve never done anything
like that before," she said.
"I have a really, really shy side,
and when I don t know what I m
doing necessarily, I m not this
scary, aggressive, intimidating per-
son that people think I am. So my
biggest challenge is getting out of
my own way."
In music, Billboard s Woman of
the Year knows exactly what she s
doing: Touring through December
to support her double-platinum
album, The Truth About Love,
which features the hit song (and
video) Blow Me (One Last Kiss).
But with Thanks for Sharing,
which opens Friday, "it s not mine
and I don t know how to critique
myself," she said. "I m trying not
to tear myself apart is basically
where I m at. I was relieved when
people didn t rip me to shreds."
Moore said she drew on real
emotions for her acting debut---
"Like what part of this is breaking
my heart? That s where I went
with it." Working with her co-star
Josh Gad only sweetened the expe-
"He was so funny that once I
was with him I didn t really have
a lot of chance to be nervous or
freaked out at all because I was
just trying not to laugh," she said.
Ultimately, she s happy she tried
acting: "It was like my first skydive:
I m just glad I got it done. I m glad
I did it."
Pink is set to wrap her tour in
Montreal on December 3. (On the
Pink/Alecia Moore distinction, she
said: "Pink is what people call me
referring to music...Outside of that,
I m Alecia or mom.") (AP)
Does acting debut mark
new chapter for Pink?
