Peet is the daughter of a Jewish mother who grew up in New York City and has more than 60 television and movie credits under her belt.
Apparently, cabbage can help a woman who suffers from painful swelling of the breasts after childbirth. Peet told Ellen, “When you get engorged after the baby’s born and the milk comes in, you can put cold cabbage leaves on your boobs. Apparently, it stops the milk.”
About going topless on the show Peet told reporters, “I think it’s very important to stay in a comic place if you’re going to take your clothes off at 42 after you’ve breastfed two children. Otherwise, it’s tragic.”
Togetherness also stars Mark Duplass, Melanie Lynskey and Steve Zissis.
Amanda Peet’s next feature film is due out this summer in which she will co-star with fellow Jewish actresses Alison Brie and Natasha Lyonne as well as Saturday Night Live alum Jason Sudeikis. Called “Sleeping with Other People” it is about a serial womanizer (Sudeikis) who has a real plutonic relationship with a woman while he tries to change.
