Chelsea Handler spends a great deal of time in front of the camera, what with her E! talk show, “Chelsea Lately,” her spin-off, “After Lately," and NBC’s short-lived “Are You There, Chelsea?” – which she also wrote and produced.
And then there’s Handler’s foray into film, which continues with the teenage Halloween adventure “Fun Size,” opening in theaters on Friday.
But at the film’s Los Angeles premiere on Thursday, the comedian told CNN she’d like to focus on another aspect of the biz.
“The sooner I can get other people’s shows on the air, the sooner I can not be on camera and then I can gain the 20 pounds that I should probably have on my body.”
Handler also talked about “Chelsea Lately” moving from the small Santa Monica studio, which the show’s called home since its 2007 debut, to the larger Stage 1 at Universal Studios.
“You know it’s been amazing,” She said. “And driving on to Universal Studios and having a parking spot in the front where they are like, ‘Ms. Handler you park here.’ I’m like how the hell did this happen?”
