The actress Kathryn Hahn, who can currently be seen on the Showtime series “Happyish, ” dished on what she likes to eat and keeps in her refrigerator. The actress talked about it with The Hollywood Reporter in its first ever installment of its new “Bites” column.
Hahn loves her coffee. “I drink a ton of coffee. I take it with a little bit of almond or soy milk, usually almost always iced. Even in New York City I’m such a Californian now that even when I was in New York over the summer I would get an iced Americano, ” she said.
On a not so kosher dish she likes, “I grew up in Ohio and this was a staple in my house. It might sound vile to some people but my children really love it: something called ‘bacon spaghetti.’ Basically, a cheesy, buttery, bacon, parsley pasta, like a child version of carbonara. Sometimes we do turkey bacon.”

The actress also told Deadline how hard it was to continue making Happyish after Phillip Seymour Hoffman died. That actor was originally cast as Hahn’s husband on the show and they filmed the pilot together. Hahn did not think that the show would continue after Hoffman died of an overdose last year.
Hahn said, “It was incredibly hard. When it happened, doing it again was the last thing in anybody’s mind; I couldn’t imagine it. But Shalom and I kept talking because we’d just been through so much together and there was really no one else in our lives that could fully understand just what that experience had been. He was very clear that there was still so much to say with this show and that Showtime still believed in it. I guess my way of coping was to throw myself into getting this made, without even really thinking about what it was going to be like to get in the ring with somebody again in those scenes. When we found out that Steve expressed interest it felt very right, because it felt so different in the way that it needed to be. It wasn’t until the first reading that I felt, “Oh, this could be a little bit harder than I had thought.” But then very quickly after that it was just getting into it with Steve, like when we actually were face-to-face in our underwear, basically there was nothing else to do but be in the moment and be grateful that we had a chance to go at it again. I can’t describe it. It was just like a different production of the same play.”
