You may still be surprised that Amber Tamblyn joined the cast of CBS’ Two and a Half Men this season, but when the actress stopped by EW to take our Pop Culture Personality Test, her answers were exactly what you’d predict: hilarious with a bit of bite. Watch the video below to find out what movie she (mistakenly) thought was appropriate for a childhood sleepover, the identity of her first celebrity crush, the two very different kind of letters she wrote when she was young, and what she’ll be thinking if she ever sees you karaoke.

Amber Tamblyn on her new PSA with David Cross: 'The best way to receive information is through comedy'
It seems all good things lead back to Arrested Development.
That certainly was the beginning for a buzzy new video calling out the United States’ restrictive healthcare laws for women. When Arrested star David Cross was in Europe promoting the show last month, his wife, actress Amber Tamblyn, joined him and the couple took a day trip to Stockholm. They may have been out of the country, but they were keeping up with news from home, where things were heating up in the Texas statehouse and a woman named Wendy Davis was about to gain national attention. While waiting for the bus, the idea for their PSA/sketch “Gynotician” was born — and written up just a few minutes later.
“Gynotician,” a term lovingly borrowed from Planned Parenthood, is Cross and Tamblyn’s response to, in their opinion, the increasingly outrageous restrictions hurting women’s health. “I think it’s been a long time coming, and it probably will continue to be a long time coming, meaning it’s many things layered on top of many things,” Tamblyn explained to EW on the phone this afternoon about why now was the time for them to get involved. “It’s really hard because people who want to look at the video and say, ‘This is just an ignorant celebrity couple making a video to support their pro-abortion thoughts,’ [that] is so myopic and so terrible and incorrect because it’s a tiny, tiny drop in the bucket of crap that is that law. And that law [in Texas that was recently passed] more than anything is about all the other aspects of women’s healthcare that it blocks and destroys.” READ FULL STORY
Amber Tamblyn is trading in magical jeans for beauty pageant fare.
The House and Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants actress, who will next be seen in Django Unchained, will make her Broadway debut in the revival of the play The Miss Firecracker Contest in spring 2013. The show will be directed by Tony winning actress Judith Ivey, who can currently be seen onstage in The Heiress with Jessica Chastain and Dan Stevens.
The Miss Firecracker Contest is “the inspiring story of Carnelle Scott (Tamblyn), a Southern orphan living in Brookhaven, Mississippi. Carnelle is furiously rehearsing her patriotic tap dance for the Miss Firecracker Contest—hoping that a victory will salvage her tarnished reputation as the town’s “Miss Hot Tamale” and allow her to leave Brookhaven in a “crimson blaze of glory.” The unexpected arrival of her cousin Elain, a former Miss Firecracker Queen, (who has walked out on her rich but boring husband and two small children) and Elain’s eccentric brother, Delmount (recently released from a mental institution), threatens to derail Carnelle’s total makeover,” according to a press release.
The play, written by Pulitzer Prize winner Beth Henley, debuted in 1984, and was later turned into a feature film starring Holly Hunter and Tim Robbins.
