Gillian Jacobs Learned How to Play Drunk By Watching Vanderpump Rules

Gillian Jacobs doesn’t drink, which makes it a challenge playing the alcoholic Mickey on Netflix’s Love. Instead of going in for some highfalutin acting theory, or interviewing a bunch of drunk people, Jacobs figured that the best way to get a handle on the character was to watch a bunch of reality TV – Vanderpump Rules, specifically. “I basically have based my performance around Jax Taylor and Katie Maloney,” she told James Corden. If Jax had ever heard of Love or Gillian Jacobs, we’re sure he would be honored.
