The native New Yorker known for her Emmy-winning role on Will & Grace says life in Hollywood and L.A. can be strange.
Messing says Tinseltown is a fantasyland where, in her words, Its always sunny, and there are beautiful, skinny people everywhere.
She says the showbiz city is full of excessiveness, which makes it difficult to have a normal life.
She explains, In L.A., its like youre always arriving for something. Theres a red carpet everywhere!
Messing also finds it weird that theres valet parking for everything, including the dry cleaners.
She laughs, Its crazy that you have to pay a guy five bucks to park your car while you pick up your clothes.
Messing says its surreal glamming it up for red carpets because she feels like a kid playing dress up.
She plays a Hollywood ex in The Starter Wife, which premieres as a full-fledged series tonight (Oct. 10) on USA Network.
