that trailer like I like I had no idea it was a holiday movie when I don't either I just I have a feeling I guess the other than the timing so your she's talking to the lease on the today show about you know her story and her interview that they did in variety there was a moment in your life where everything looked like it was perfect your winning awards writing books your house was neat you were married like life was perfect on the outside but in your hand you had a fist full of like it and I were in your own home and what happened in that moment in that moment a friend of mine who's a healer who is a Brazilian woman who I've known for a long time was standing behind me unbeknownst to me and as I put a handful of I can in my mouth with a glass of wine as I was beginning the evening routine of making dinner and the kids dinners or whatever from behind me I heard her say you know I see with your little pills Jamie and you think you're so alive and you think you're so fabulous but you're not you're dead you're dead woman and that was really the beginning of me understanding that was in December of ninety nine and then in January of ninety nine a wonderful writer named Tom sure well in esquire magazine wrote an article called if I could in my bike it in about his love affair with bike it in and his addiction and the combination of my friends singing and Tom writing that article brave lady outing himself is the reason I got sober which is the reason why when variety said to me we're going to do an issue annually about addiction in show business we would like you to be the cover girl of course I said yes simply because Tom cheer well it did it for me in nineteen ninety nine and she said so even if one person read this story you know she's just she's married to Christopher gas yeah the director and I just it's kind of fun to see her back in the movies and back you know she's she's not being as quiet yeah because they know her kids like you know she kind of step back because they really junior high and high school and just like I want to be on the top so let's just say the last one you had this secret were you worried that when you let your secret out back even then that you would lose jobs the world of commercials course but was that that was a big fear well it's yeah it any secret isn't is fearful yeah and there's a row of recovery phrase that says you're only as sick as your secrets and the truth is today hello data I can look in the mirror and when I'm looking in the mirror I'm looking at the problem but I'm also looking at the solution
