I Don’t Know What You Know Me From by Judy Greer

1a

 

You may recognize her from being the best friend in the movie 13 Going On 30.  She was also a friend in 27 Dresses.  She had a supporting role in What Women Want, Carrie, Playing For Keeps, The Descendants, The Wedding Planner.   She has had tv show appearances such as Modern Family, ER, House MD, My Name Is Earl, CSI Miami, Two and a Half Men, and more… so much more.

Judy Greer is always in the role of best friend, co-worker, the neighbor… the walk on part.  While you may recognize her from something… Judy Greer laughs at the fact that she is often unable to place, and often, identified incorrectly.

From fun moments (or… not so fun moments) at the Oscars, wardrobe malfunctions, a famous actor giving her father a Harley Davidson, behind the scenes and more.

Many of the movies that Judy Greer has been in I have seen.  While I recognize her and enjoy the parts that she plays, I admittedly, could not have told you her name.

Until now.

Judy Greer’s memoir, I Don’t Know Where You Know Me From, is like sitting with a friend you have not seen in a while and catching up on what is going on in their life.  It is light and funny. I listened to this one on audio, narrated by Judy herself, which was fun, and really added to the “sitting and catching up with a friend” feeling.  The audio is fairly short, but for this it works… much like hanging out with that friend – you do not want them to ramble on and on about themselves to the point that you do not want to see them for a while. ;)  That does not happen here.  Judy leaves you with just enough that you are still friends once her book is over and you look forward to whatever you will see her in next, so you can say - “That, is Judy Greer.  She is funny and versatile, you need to read her book.”

  1. I didn’t know who she was either. This sounds like an audio I’d like too.

  2. I like how an audio is a good accompaniment and like a conversation you can just sit back and relax and listen to.

  3. I saw her on TV talking about the book, and can’t remember which show… and I recognized her but didn’t know from where. I think I’d like this. I’ll have to give it a listen.

  4. I don’t usually listen to audios, but this sounds like it would be fun.

  5. This one is on my list. So glad you liked it.

  6. She’s hilarious! I watch her right now on a show called Married… omg it’s so funny and kinda true to real marriage. I would like this one for sure! Great review!

  7. I’ve always liked Judy Greer for some reason and the title of this memoir is so charming. Plus it’s always good when actors read their own memoirs!
