The cast of The Pairs stars Laura Dennings new memoir, The Paired, tells the story of her years in the entertainment industry, including her role in the sitcom “Shark Tank.”
The book is written with husband Brian Derns son, Bryan, and features stories about Dern’s childhood and career as well as her early life in Hollywood.
Dern says she is not sure she was aware of her father’s work in television before coming out.
“I just started watching shows like ‘Glee’ and ‘Family Guy’ and the writing was amazing.
I thought that would be what I was going to do, and I was like, ‘Well, what is that?'”
“And then I started seeing people, and it was like ‘What the heck is that?’
So I started reading all these books and it just got to be like, wow, I’m in the movie business, that’s cool.”
Dern is married to actor Brian Dennies son, Austin, who is a part of the book.
“He and I just fell in love and had so much fun working together, and we’re really lucky,” she said.
Denns new memoir has been hailed as a critical success, and she says it’s a sign that Hollywood has a sense of humor.
“My book, and my show, have become the conversation, and they just like to laugh and joke about themselves,” Dern told CNN.
“That’s what I’m trying to do with this book, to make people laugh.”
Denning says her book is a “must read” for anyone who is interested in Hollywood and the entertainment business.
“It’s very funny, it’s very well-written and well-researched, and people who have read my book have told me that it’s their favorite book,” she told CNN in a video interview.
“They really love it.”
Darns new book comes as the book is also available for pre-order.
“This book has become my bible,” she added.
“There are so many good stories that come out of this book.
It really is a must read.”
