The former Facts of Life star, 41, ditches her Eastland kilt to play a saucy assistant in the new comedy Sex and Death 101.

IN THIS MOVIE YOU GET TO SWEAR A BLUE STREAK. I have a mouth like a truck driver. I mean, I can’t help it, poop and farts are funny.

WHAT WOULD MRS. GARRETT SAY? Sometimes I feel like Fonzie’s jacket. People see me and they want to try me on and be nostalgic. I cherish it, but I also don’t let it define me.

DOES IT EVER GET OLD? People think they know me, even if they don’t know me. So I move through the world as if it’s my little town, and that’s a very comforting thing. I’m very lucky.

WERE YOU EVER PRESSURED TO LOSE WEIGHT? No, I wasn’t treated that way. Natalie wasn’t the fat girl. Natalie was Natalie.

IS A REALITY SHOW IN YOUR FUTURE? I should be in the Guinness World Records book for the person most offered reality shows. I don’t want to play Mindy Cohn on television. Do I need to remind the public that I was on The Facts of Life? No!

YOU’RE ALSO THE VOICE OF VELMA ON SCOOBY-DOO. HOW COOL IS THAT? Now that’s the freakin’ icon! Everyone can have Natalie. I’ll take Velma.
