Alyssa Milano is starring in a new Lifetime movie called Sundays at Tiffany’s. The story is about a Manhattan woman named Jane (Milano) who is about to marry a popular TV actor named Hugh. However, she’s having second thoughts about whether Hugh is her dream man, and the invisible friend she had as a kid suddenly reappears in her life as a real – and hot – dude. Yes, you read that correctly: her invisible friend shows up as a real person. And then – spoiler alert! – they make out.
Implausible storyline aside, Milano is more than capable in the part, and she spoke to The Gloss about the movie, her wedding dress, and her personal style icon.
In the movie, Jane’s search for the perfect wedding dress is a major storyline. How did you find your dress when you married David Bugliari last year?
My dress was one of those moments that people tell you about, but you don’t believe them. My mom said to me, “When you put your dress on, you know.” I had met with two or three designers and had one dress from each designer that I liked. I was ready to settle, and then I got an appointment with Vera Wang. I went in and I saw this dress that had just come off the runway and I put it on and started crying. There was no way it could have been a more distinct realization. I got overcome with emotion.
The movie pays homage to Audrey Hepburn and Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Are you an Audrey fan as well?
Of course! Audrey is an inspiration for so many reasons, not just as a style icon but as a woman. She was a UNICEF Ambassador before everybody did it – she and Danny Kaye got involved and used their voices to call attention to needs around the world.
What is the most romantic gift someone has given you?
For our first anniversary, my husband got me an organic garden. I am growing arugula, spinach, beets, snap peas, broccoli, cauliflower, and so much more. We just had our first salad from the garden! The only time I don’t tweet is when I’m gardening.
