Hi Reddit! Alyssa here! Can’t wait to see all your questions. My new series on Netflix, “Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later” is available to stream beginning today. Come check out my twitter and instagram as well as my brand new website: patriotnotpartisan.com
How do you feel to have a ship named after you in Guardians of the Galaxy?
Pretty much the coolest thing EVER!
My dad is a huge fan of your show, Charmed. He watches the reruns on TNT every morning. However, my mom teases him for watching it. She says he is losing his man card.
What price of advice/message do you have for my dad? His name is Mike btw
Does he watch it with the sound on? I'm kidding. I kid. Tell Mike it takes a man totally secure in his masculinity to watch the show and your mom is secretly more attracted to him because of it.
Do you think it's about time for a Commando sequel?
Way overdue IMHO.
Have you figured out how to reply yet?
I couldn't login to my account! And then I logged in and there were no questions and I thought no one cared. Which may be true but I'm glad there are questions.
Was Tony, Angela, or Mona the boss?
We still don't know....
Hi Alyssa! What was it like to work with Arnold Schwarzenegger as a kid?
It was awesome. He used to help me with my algebra homework.
What is your favorite Milano cookie?
Hey there was a recent rumor that Holly Marie Combs eventually said wasn't true that Charmed was gonna get a reboot or continuation on Netflix or was at least in talks to. Is that something you'd be interested in?
My sisters and I used to watch Charmed every morning while getting ready for school so we'd all really love it.
We have all said we would be interested in exploring a reboot. CBS Studios has the rights and is continuing to develop. I'm unsure of what their take would be or if we would be included.
I never watched it when I was younger, but my girlfriend in law school was a major Charmed fan when she was a kid. We picked up all the seasons on DVD and would watch them almost every night. Great show and fond memories for me.
I love this.
Ummmm.... That was so awesome. That was the first time I've seen that. Thank you for sharing.
Hello Alyssa! What is your favorite adult beverage?
In what way has the show charmed shaped your life and what are their impacts? (Phoebe was my fave character btw)
Also whats you're favourite piece of advice to give to people?
Another question : if you weren't acting what other job would you be doing right now?
Knowing that James Gunn has a crush on you, how do you plan on using this to get a part in Guardians of the Galaxy 3 ?
This would be fun.
Hi Alyssa! Do your kids know that their mother is a Disney princess? If so, how did they react when they found out?
Have a nice day!
They don't know yet! I'm not sure they would care. Thats the beauty of kids. I'm their mom and nothing else matters. (As it should be)
Arnold Schwarzenegger and Liam Neeson team up to rescue their daughters. So Commando meets Taken! Lost_Afropick you are genuis! I would watch that.
Maybe in Commando 2 someone else gets kidnapped and Arnold and I have to team up.
I am not sure if you remember but, we met in Kuwait in 2003. You were with John Stamos and Rebecca Romijn and it was definitely one of the highlights of my Marine Corps. experience while in country (Kuwait/Iraq).
Thanks so much for your support for us and making the deployment a bit more bearable! My only regret is that I didn't get to take a picture with you.
And since I have to ask you a question - what motivated you to come out to Kuwait to visit us Marines?
I will always support the military. I will always appreciate the military. And especially after that trip. Thank you for all of your many sacrifices. I hope we get a picture together someday.
I saw u on 'Tanked"...are your fish still alive?
You are very outspoken politically on your Twitter. While I think all the work you do is great, what do you say to people who think that celebrities shouldn't use their fame to talk politics and social issues??
I am a citizen of the United States Of America. It is my right to speak out about anything I choose. Also, the same people that tell me to not have an opinion because I'm an uniformed celebrity are the same people that voted for an uninformed celebrity.
Hi, Alyssa. How cool is Tony Danza? He's awesome, right?
If she doesn't say Victoria Bitter then I'll cry.
Uhhh... Victoria Bitter?? Don't cry.
Have you ever considered an endorsement deal for the Milano cookies made by Pepperidge Farm?
As long as I get a lifetime supply I would do this.
My middle daughter is named after you!
When my wife and I were discussing names I threw out Alyssa...(because I was thinking about beautiful strong women)...and yours is the one she agreed upon.
In bed about a year after she was born, while discussing out current "top 5's" I mentioned you and she looked over at me and said, "wait a minute...did we name our daughter after Alyssa Milano?"
I just smiled.
Tell your wife and Alyssa I send my love.
I know you're a huge ASPCA advocate, what is something anyone you feel can do (besides donating money) to help the ASPCA and animals in general?
You can volunteer! You can be an animal foster parent! You can advocate and raise money in your community.
Commando: Ten Years Later.
More like Commando: 30 years later
Hello! How did you like working with JulianMcMahon? Do you still talk?
He was so fun to work with. I haven't seen him is a long time but I'm sure if we ran into each other we would pick up right where we left off.
Alyssa, about 15 years ago you came into my bookstore with your boyfriend and bought a book. You asked for it to be gift wrapped but while we were wrapping it you left the store and forgot the book. It stayed on the shelf behind the register for years (the store is out of business now), with a note that said "For Alyssa Milano" in case you ever back to pick it up. We never unwrapped it. And I've wondered for years.
What was the book?
OOoohhhhh! I love this story. I have no idea what the book was or who it was for.
My wife and I re-watched Charmed recently, what was your favorite behind the scenes of a special effect or makeup? Did you learn something really cool about how they did something that you can share?
The mermaid episode! Even though the scales we a bitch to take off.
Very little is spoken of your charity work and it should be noted you've made some significant contributions. Who should we volunteer or financially support and why?
There are so many wonderful organizations to donate your time and money to. UNICEF saves more lives than any other organization on the planet. And as an ambassador I've seen firsthand the lifesaving work they do. And you should volunteer at your local food bank or homeless shelter.
What is your favorite memory from the 90's?
I was just asked this question today and I'm not sure I have one.
So Teen Steam, did you ever let it out?
Hi! Thanks so much for doing this AMA! My roommates and I love binge watching Charmed while female bonding. Your character is so inspiring! Kicking ass, fighting evil, being a loving sister, and all that. My question is: do you have a particular person in your life or a fictional character that you really look up to?
My daughter is fearless and funny. She inspires me daily. And my mother is a strong, smart, woman that gives me strength when I don't feel so strong.
Would you be interested in returning to charmed if the opportunity arose? What was it like working on the show?
Also, will project runway all stars be returning soon?
Yes! We would all love to be a part of the show again as long as the show respected the integrity of the original!
