If you haven’t had the chance to check out the new Netflix show GLOW about women’s wrestling in the 1980s starring Alison Brie, Betty Gilpin and Marc Maron you really should. The hype is real because it’s one of the most entertaining Netflix originals to come along in some time.

Part of that obviously has to do with the fact that Alison Brie is awesome in just about every way possible. She plays her part so well, the cast that surrounds her is equally as good (Gilpin kills it), and the writing is spot-on.

Of course, we already loved Brie from her days on Community and Mad Men, as well as anytime she has given an interview, because Alison always has very little filter regarding what she is willing to discuss.

So when Brie sat down with Playboy to answer their 20 questions, you knew nothing would be off-limits.

Check out some of the highlights…

You get naked in the first episode of GLOW. Did you train for that too?
Oh absolutely. I definitely did some push-ups and sit-ups in my room to pump up the right muscles beforehand. I’ve passed on a lot of projects that had nudity, but I was obsessed with getting GLOW. Nudity is a part of the show, and I had no hesitation. I love the character. I understood why they wanted it. Getting naked on camera is like ripping off a Band-Aid. The hardest part is the transition from being in your robe to being naked on set. Once I was naked, it kind of reminded me of my nudist days from college and that feeling of, Oh yeah, I love my body and this is fun and silly and it’s fine.

Your nudist days from college?
Cal Arts was sort of clothing optional. I don’t know what it’s like now; even in the four years I was there, they had started to crack down. My freshman year, the Erotic Ball was still happening. Everybody was in different states of undress. There were tents with TVs playing pornography. And I seem to remember a live sex performance. Mostly it was a lot of lingerie and body paint. I wore this Victoria’s Secret thing with a little black thong under a black lace long-sleeved minidress. It was see-through lace—you could see the panties—but also long-sleeved because, you know, I’m very demure.

Well, my college certainly sucked compared to that. Sorry…back to the interview…

Do you know there’s a Tumblr account devoted to your breasts?
There’s a fascination I can’t really explain. My mom was the first one to point that out early in my Community days. She was like, “I was reading a bunch of message boards, and people seem very fascinated by your boobs. I don’t know why. They’re not that big.” I was like, “Mom, I have great boobs. How dare you?” It’s humorous to me that people have had a fixation with my boobs. By the time I’m ready to film a full-nude scene, I am the most muscular I’ve ever been and my boobs are the smallest they’ve ever been. It’s sort of like a fuck-you to the boob-fetish people.

You also have a following of foot fetishists. How do you figure that happened?
I understand why people like my feet, because I do find them to be very cute. But I can’t totally make the leap to sexualizing them. People constantly request photos of my feet, and they also send me photos of my feet when I’ve worn minimal heels or have gone barefoot. Somebody explained to me that it’s because feet are the only part of your body that you can’t change or alter, so it’s really you. I found that to be quite beautiful. But then your mind just cuts to someone jerking off on their feet, and that image is ingrained in your mind forever. Why would you put your dick between two feet when you could put it in a warm vagina or a butthole?

Why indeed?

Like I said, folks, if you haven’t checked out the show yet, you really need to do so, and soon.
