In the upcoming film Waitress, Keri Russell plays a small-town diner waitress with an insufferable husband and an unwanted pregnancy. Her one joy in life (well, apart from a steamy affair with her OB/GYN) is inventing sweets with bitter true-to-life names like I Hate My Husband Pie and Baby Screaming Its Head Off in the Middle of the Night and Ruining My Life Pie. But during an advance screening at the Lincoln Center last night for the Film Society’s “Young Friends of Film” program, a very pregnant Russell revealed a real-life quirk to rival her character's. Asked about her favorite part of filming, she replied, "I really liked wearing my waitress uniform. Is that weird?" — Lauren Murrow
