Once she was the only virgin. Now she’ll have sex with anyone. As Shoshanna on HBO’s “Girls,” Zosia Mamet has a quirky, wide-eyed innocence that endears her to fans. On a break from shooting the TV hit, she takes on a completely different role, as a manipulative college girl in the off-Broadway play ‘Really Really.’ Just 25, the determined actress has a strong work ethic and a fast-talking style. Here Mamet talks to Janice Kaplan about selfishness, awkward sex and her famous father.

Three Men And A Dream
One day when they were in South Africa shooting a movie together, Matt Damon and Clint Eastwood went out for a beer. Several months later, Damon jokes about the evening.
“I’m not sure if you remember,” he says, flashing a broad smile at Eastwood, “but you leaned over and told me, ‘You know, I really do know what I’m doing.’”
“It’s pretty sad I had to explain that,” Eastwood says, with a slight twinkle in his eye.
“No, no, believe me, I knew it!” Damon replies. Continue reading
To understand Barbra Streisand, you have to know why she loves the color burgundy.
“I got sent to a health camp when I was about 6 years old, and we all had to wear the same starchy blue uniform,” she says with a shudder. “The lady who took care of me after school knit me a burgundy sweater. It was the only thing that gave me any individuality.”

But the atmosphere Streisand creates is warm and comfortable.
And so, amazingly, is she.
