SMG Live Reddit AMA Thread


"I am Sarah Michelle Gellar, also known as the girl who saves the world a lot. Ask me almost anything! (self.IAmA)
submitted 3 hours ago* by Sarah_MichelleGellar

Hi reddit, I'm Sarah Michelle Gellar. Most of you know me from Buffy or Cruel Intentions. But now I'm playing the role I've always been born to play on The Crazy Ones. I'm also doing a charitable campaign with Unilever called Project Sunlight that helps support a bright future for children.
Anyways, Victoria's going to be helping me today. Let's answer some questions!


For all the years I've been doing this, I just want to say thank you to all of my loyal fans. I so appreciate each and every one of you. You are all the Chosen One."

She (and/or her assistant) has really been doing a bang-up job with social media now that she started up.

AMA's make me want to create a reddit account.
lauren7653 28th-Feb-2014 02:37 am (UTC)
i solely created a twitter when SMG did and she actually tweeted me back one day. I was so happy!

r/enoughinternet sold me tho

They're really frustrating sometimes. Lately at the beginning people have started to downvote every question they see that isn't theirs in the hopes of increasing their own visibility, it's so obnoxious.
jellycar 28th-Feb-2014 02:59 am (UTC)
ew rude.
sundried 28th-Feb-2014 03:00 am (UTC)
stay out of r/spacedicks. you'll thank me in advance.
raised_eyebrows 28th-Feb-2014 03:01 am (UTC)
Worth a shot, I suppose. I tried to ask Keanu Reeves a question and he didn't answer it :((. You'd probably have more luck with some of the lesser-known celebs, though.

me deuce, but i don't want to venture into that dark corner of the interwebs.
i don't know what would become of me

I prefer the AMA of authors. They will answer your question. Celebs are such a crapshoot on AMAs.
vehiclesshockme 28th-Feb-2014 02:35 am (UTC)
Forever my queen.

Seriously though I feel like a lot of who I am as a person has to do with Buffy.
duchello 28th-Feb-2014 02:44 am (UTC)
#season5 tho
onesilkstocking 28th-Feb-2014 02:50 am (UTC)
ia and plus it had my flawless queen drusilla
yeezus_christ 28th-Feb-2014 02:53 am (UTC)
um...nooo. no, no nooo.
just nooo.

the show definitely peaked with season five. nothing in season six or seven compares with what came before it.
i used to think season three was overrated, but have come to realize just how poignant it is over time,
lillylilacs 28th-Feb-2014 03:00 am (UTC)
s3 is the best imo
larrylurker 28th-Feb-2014 03:39 am (UTC)
Season 6

*straight face*
lauren7653 28th-Feb-2014 02:38 am (UTC)
Me too girl. I compared my first love to Angel and Buffy's love and then I had a Riley. LOL.
I had my mom make all my school dresses identical to Buffy's. I was crazy. I'm still obsessed. It wasn't just Buffy either, Cruel Intentions was the best.
fenchurchly 28th-Feb-2014 02:43 am (UTC)
I totally agree. I've posted this before, but this is me freshman year of high school dressed as Buffy for Halloween. I also wore gray pants like she had on in the episode in your GIF + faux leather jackets on the reg.

I have so much affection for SMG.

I'll never feel this kind of affection for another celebrity again because it's rooted in what her character meant to me during my formative years. As an adult, it's hard to imagine a fictional character having that kind of impact on me now.
anna_drenxavier 28th-Feb-2014 04:17 am (UTC)
OMG that moment is so inspiring to me. BUFFY, MY HERO. <3
rockingthemike 28th-Feb-2014 04:36 am (UTC)

That's so sad about her daughter not even wanting her picture taken at home.

She seems like such a good mom. I love how private she is! She seems really nice/down to earth and funny.

So 3 hours later and she's only answered 2 questions, lmao.
jellycar 28th-Feb-2014 02:49 am (UTC)
same ngl. Especially with Scooby Doo
kidviciousdonna 28th-Feb-2014 03:37 am (UTC)
Not me, I was pissed she wasn't with Ryan Phillipe
bizarrre 28th-Feb-2014 02:50 am (UTC)
She's awfully chatty about Buffy lately. I remember when she wouldn't do conventions or go to those parties the casts would have every year. She always seemed so bitter about Buffy and now she really embraces it.

I was just thinking about how actors will leave television shows or badmouth them and then their movie careers don't go anywhere. e.g. Topher Grace, Katherine Heigl, SMG...I'm sure there's more I can't think of.
saintssin 28th-Feb-2014 02:54 am (UTC)
But she didn't really seem to badmouth the show. She always seemed really appreciative of the success it brought her.

She seems really low key, probably because she has a family. She kind of just did her own thing once the show ended and didn't really bring it up much.
bizarrre 28th-Feb-2014 02:57 am (UTC)
True. She never badmouthed it. I just remember my impression back then is that she didn't really want to be associated with the show at all anymore. I might have thought that because she really phoned it in the last 2 seasons of that show. But honestly, Marti Noxon just fucked everything up and it seems like all the actors stopped caring. Except Nicholas Brenden, because I feel like he knew he wasn't going to blow up or anything after Buffy.
lillylilacs 28th-Feb-2014 02:57 am (UTC)
yeah, John Stamos used to bad mouth Full House and didn't want to be associated with it but lately has seemed to be fine with it.

I think it is because they are trying to distance themselves from such an iconic role and not get pigeonholed. They don't want to be known as the guy from... so they go so far in the opposite direction that they seem bitter.
chilli_cheese 28th-Feb-2014 03:00 am (UTC)
I don't think she ever badmouthed buffy tho? I think she was just exhausted and ready to move on - she was the lead and was in almost every scene for 7 yrs.
jellycar 28th-Feb-2014 03:01 am (UTC)
I think because she's older she can see the impact it has and can appreciate it as a whole more, now that she's not working on it.
Idk, I was so young when Buffy came out and just considered SMG my hero who was too busy kicking butt to do much Buffy promotion.
rara8777 28th-Feb-2014 03:08 am (UTC)
Add David Duchovny to that list too.
i_have_no_style 28th-Feb-2014 03:29 am (UTC)
She's only 'appreciates' of Buffy when she's got something to promote.
kidviciousdonna 28th-Feb-2014 03:39 am (UTC)
I think as she has gotten older she has stepped back to truly see how important it really was
frelling_tralk 28th-Feb-2014 12:18 pm (UTC)
She never tried to distance herself from the role in the media, I think that fans had the idea that she wasn't as into Buffy as the rest of the cast because she never did extra for the show/fans like conventions or DVD appearances, but she has always spoken positively about the role in interviews
prophecypro 28th-Feb-2014 12:21 pm (UTC)
I just think at the time she didnt wanna just be seen as Buffy and now that time when her career was still young is gone and she can reflect on stuff. Its not really badmouthing as much as they dont wanna be seen as the Con person milking that one role either
