Gillian Jacobs Looks Back on 2016, Ahead of 'Love' Season 2

This season's V Girls channel film noir with a femme fatale twist. Up next, comedian Gillian Jacobs who brought humor to a not-so-funny year.

This season's V Girls channel film noir with a femme fatale twist. Up next, comedian Gillian Jacobs who brought humor to a not-so-funny year.

DRESS DIOR GLOVES LACRASIA TIGHTS FALKE

How would you describe your style?

Prints, prints, and more prints.

Currently I’m listening to...

Blood Orange and lots of podcasts: You Must Remember This, Sooo Many White Guys, and Radiolab.

In 2016, I was most inspired by...

Megan Smith, the Chief Technology Officer of the United States, who I had the pleasure of interviewing for Lenny Letter.

The best film I saw this year was...

The documentary Tickled.

If you could have any superpower, what would it be?

Fly invisibly through time. That combines a couple of key ones, right?

What is one book you recommend everyone should read?

The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat by Oliver Sacks. He sparked my interest in neuroscience and the beautiful mystery of the human brain.

2016 was...

Terrifying.

2017 will be...

Better? Fingers crossed.
