Speaking of shopping, which shops are intimately familiar with
your credit card numbers? Barneys is my favorite place. I don't
care where I am in the world, I shop at Barneys. Everything is so
beautiful. Another favorite of mine is a store called Tory Burch.
They have summer things, and it always reminds me of California
vacations. It makes me feel happy, because when I'm in New York and
get really depressed about the weather, I go in there. They have
such amazing patterns and fun pinks and oranges, and it reminds me
of home. I buy a lot of vacation clothes there. And I do a lot of
shopping on the street. That's the thing about New York: There are
always little jewels everywhere here. You walk around the street,
and you find such great bargains everywhere. Barneys is one side of
me, but then I have my bohemian on-the-street stuff. That's all
over the city.
If the pipes burst in your apartment, what's the first hotel
you'd go to? The Four Seasons. I was living on Waverly Place
and I had a five a.m. call. I had no idea about the Halloween
parade in New York. It's insane. It's like Mardi Gras. The whole
city shuts down, and I was having a nervous breakdown because I had
all of these early calls and I hadn't slept. I was really
overwhelmed with the show. I checked myself right into the Four
If that's sold out, where would you go? Well, now I just
come here, to the Soho Grand. It's so close to my house. I always
have people stay at this hotel. You have every fun restaurant
nearby. The best shopping in all of New York is here. It's groovy,
cool, and low-key. If you're an actor, nobody bothers you.
Where do you go in the city when you want to pretend you're not
surrounded by millions of people and skyscrapers? I go to Bliss
Spa, because I don't feel like I'm in the middle of New York City
when I'm there, and the spa is amazing. It transports me to another
place. Utter relaxation. The massage therapists and aestheticians
are really fine at what they do.
