I’ve spent hours on the couch flipping through Netflix, work from home, and use it as a place for my friends to hang out after impromptu visits.

I hear you and Lovesac are going way back. How did this partnership originate?
Well, I knew about Lovesac because I grew up with this Lovesac sofa Which my parents have always been obsessed with. Literally, it’s been years and years, and they just won’t shut up about it. When a guest comes, they have to rearrange their sofa in front of their guests to show them how much they love this cute sofa. I knew about Lovesac because of that, but then I saw this mix of other people included in this campaign, which was like Travis Barker and Brandy, and it was such an eclectic and fun mix. It was really fun, and I can’t wait for this commercial we shot to come out, to be honest, I’m honestly more proud of this announcement than I have been of some of the films I’ve done in the past.
I’m curious… do you remember what it was like furnishing your first apartment after leaving your parents’ house and leaving the Lovesac sofa behind?
Oh my God, it was just that… It is This is a sign of freedom and adulthood. And this is a continuation of not only getting to know yourself but also expressing yourself in your personal space and surrounding yourself with the things you are You to choose, You Buyer, You I worked hard for it, and it really represents it You. I’ve honestly been doing this lately for the past two years. When I was living with my ex, we read The magic of organizing that changes lives by Marie Kondo, and I got into it, and he did too. Together, we purged all of our handcrafted furniture, and really intentionally picked the ones we felt the most. And you know it feels really accomplished when you make your own space and have the money, the time, and the connection to your own tastes to be able to do it. It takes time to get there. So we did it together, and it was kind of my first stage of doing anything like that. now Since I was on my own it was like a whole new phase of doing it. I have a lot of pink in my house now. I have a lot of pink. I’m all about comfort and warmth, but also love, cool.
So you bt Barbecue as I see it! What advice would you give Gen Z when it comes to choosing home decor?
First of all, I only use Pinterest for my interior decorating ideas like this. So honestly, I don’t know if Gen Z uses Pinterest anymore or if this is more of a millennial thing. but I own [mood] paintings for each of my rooms in my house, I collect the things I want and [bookmark] Links to things I want to get now or in the future. I have to see what it all looks like together. I do it to get started, and then that’s also how you can find the kind of style you’re really drawn to.
It’s hard to take the time to build a nice home and then maintain it. Have you ever dealt with a furniture mishap, like a bad sofa stain?
*laughs* Whatever comes to mind is probably inappropriate. I mean, the couch is a nice place to do a lot of things. I had to steam clean my old sofa because, you know, I couldn’t take those covers off and put them in the washing machine like you can with these. [Lovesac] That. The PG-13 version of the stuff I’ve poured is, like, wine — a lot of red wine because I drink a lot of red wine. Oh, My cat also gets a lot of berries.
Let’s just say a lot happens on the couch. We’ll leave it there. From wine spills to raspberries to R-rated liquids.
Listen, our couches have all seen each other Things at one time or another. With that being said, bumping into a friend’s couch is a rite of passage. If you could gift any of your famous friends a Lovesac Couch for moments like this, who would it be and why?
Well, I gave my best friend, who is an actor, a sofa. Kaitlyn Carver, I gave her a couch, she and her boyfriend live together. So that was interesting. I guess I got the choice, and I chose her! And this sofa I got is so cool. It has an audio system inside the sofa. When I watch TV, I literally feel it vibrate, as if I were in a movie theatre. On either side of the sofa’s arms is a phone charger, for that matter You can just set your iPhone on the couch and charge it. Isn’t that amazing?
What was the last view you did on the leather couch in your movie?
I watch a lot of reality dating shows. I spend a lot of my time just binge-watching them. So a good sofa is absolutely essential because I don’t have a TV in my bedroom, I do it all on the sofa. Unfortunately, it has been Married at first sight Recently and I say “unfortunately” because the new season of it hurts. Married at first sight Perhaps the craziest of all the shows, it’s an extreme scenario.
Your campaign theme is “Rewrite the Rules of Comfort.” Draw me a picture of Haley Lu Richardson getting cozy in her own home.
Well, a shame for sure. I don’t have AC in my house so it gets very hot. I like any excuse not to wear too much, but I also love super thin, extra soft, and extra large T-shirts. I love that. I love candles and incense lit. I love cuddling with my own squishmallows And my cat, Darbin, who is basically a live squishmallow. I like to play some music; I have a great sound system and I love music. It’s just very healing and therapeutic for me.
everyone. the. vibrations. for you white lotus The character, Portia, has gone viral for her outlandish costumes, Which TBH made me feel a little insecure because it’s so close to what I’m wearing, But if you could catch a glimpse of her house, what do you think it would look like?
I don’t think she ever looked inside herself to really know what her style was, or put forth effort into doing things for herself. So I think her apartment is probably very simple. I think it might be too messy. But not in a fun artistic way, in a chaotic way. I think Maybe she has a couple of trendy knockoffs, like the Amazon knockoffs. I imagine, you know, that curvy mirror that was so cool, I feel like I found a replica of it on Amazon. I feel her apartment is sad.
Will she have a Lovesac sofa or is that too much for her?
very adult. I obviously feel for Portia because I played her so I had to really understand her. But, I don’t think she really values herself. I don’t think it’s time to get to know herself enough to understand her strengths, her dreams, her ambitions and all that stuff. just me I don’t think she values herself yet so I can’t see her giving herself nice things, whether it’s saving up for something nice or even just taking the time to make a nice space for herself. Which is sad. Because I want the best for Portia. I really do, after everything we’ve been through together.
What is your position on returning for the third season?
I mean, I feel like I may have heard from Mike [White] Or someone if they were going to get me, but I didn’t. I think Mike is very smart. This show is specific, cool and fun. It’s just a fun ride. I will probably trust anything Mike creates. If I hear from Mike about another project, I’m I can probably trust that whatever he writes or comes up with will be something I want to do.
