I Don't Know Where You Know Me From by Judy Greer

You've seen her in a movie, TV show, or even a commercial. Perhaps you just caught an episode of Two and a Half Men, or watched 13 Going on 30 with a friend. Or was it The Descendants, or that episode of The Big Bang Theory? Or maybe you just saw that Framily commercial.

The actress you are thinking about is Judy Greer, and while you might not remember what you saw her in, she has been in over 80 movies and TV shows. In I Don't Know Where You Know Me From, she gives readers a peak into her life growing up, how she got started acting, and a little bit about her family. The book is full of short essays about the hows and whys of who she is, and the people who made her this way. From a look back at her childhood in a suburb of Detroit to her college years in Chicago and her current life in LA, reading I Don't Know Where You Know Me is like meeting a new friend who just happens to have worked with some of the biggest movie stars on the planet.

If you liked the memoirs by Tina Fey and Mindy Kaling, check out Judy Greer's book. Judy Greer's honesty, humor and yes brief insights into the world of Hollywood is a refreshing look at the life of a co-star.
