She’s everyone’s favorite lovable secretary on “The Office,” but Ellie Kemper is actually a full-fledged hottie in her photo spread for the March issue of NYLON magazine.
The “Bridesmaids” babe shows off her flirty side with a series of beautiful shots, and in the accompanying video she plugs her upcoming new flick “21 Jump Street,” also starring Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill.
In her interview, Ellie notes that it was riding the pine on the Princeton field hockey team that got her into acting. “I was always on the bench, so one day I quit and decided to join the improv club.”
As for the difference between the UK and USA versions of “The Office,” Kemper observed, “The British version is a bit raw, but our show has this extra theatrical element that people seem receptive to.”
Ellie confessed that someday she’d like to deviate from her sweet-girl character- “I think I would like to play someone mean. I’m like, ‘When can the crazy woman come out?’”
