Who doesn’t crush on Denis Leary, right? Elaine Hendrix takes on the role of his longtime live-in lover on ‘Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll’ and she stopped by HollywoodLife.com and admitted, she’s part of that group.
From the evil step-mother on The Parent Trap alongside Lindsay Lohan, to Ross’ doctor-office-run-in girl on Friends, to Denis Leary‘s girlfriend Ava on Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, Elaine Hendrix has some pretty epic stories of her life. However, at the moment, she’s concentrating on her FX show and really hoping that it gets a season two. Listen to our exclusive HollywoodLife.com podcast right here.
“Everyone loves Denis! I have a crush on Denis,” Elaine told us when she stopped by the Hollywoodlife.com offices. “It’s easy to have a crush on Denis Leary, I get it. He is like vintage wine, I love that… or more like an aged whisky really.”
We totally could see that. We’re currently midway through season one of Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, and while Elaine has wrapped, she’s really looking forward to (and hoping for) a season two. Download the podcast on iTunes here.
“Fingers crossed, you just never know,” Elaine told us. “That’s the thing about show business! Just put me out of my misery — ‘Are we doing it or not?’ I can deal with either answer, it’s just this sort of limbo that is sort of nerve wracking.”
Well, we can assume that it will get picked up — this season is really good, funny, and has one hell of a cast, including John Corbett, Liz Gillies, Robert Kelly and John Ales.
Elaine’s Other Love
When Elaine’s not filming with hottie Denis Leary, she’s helping even more adorable ones — animals. She launched www.thepetmatchmaker.com, which is all about finding homes for animals. “Our mission statement is to inspire and celebrate the rescue and adoption of homeless pets everywhere, so we share resources, we share animals who need homes, we share stories that are inspiring, and a call-to-action for animals that are in distress,” she said. And don’t think she just has a team who does everything — she gets personally involved too, and has five pets of her own.
“One of them in particular, Ellie Puppy, she comes with me, she is my soulmate,” she said. “Not only does she come with me to New York, but she comes with me to set. Everyone loves Ellie!”
You can watch Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll (and live tweet with Elaine) each week on Thursday at 10pm on FX.
