Publisher's Summary

A New York Times best seller!

By the actress, writer, and one of the funniest women on Twitter, an outrageous, hysterical memoir of acting on impulse, plotting elaborate hoaxes, and refusing to acknowledge boundaries in any form.

Jenny Mollen is an actress and writer living in Los Angeles. She is also a wife, married to a famous guy (which is annoying only because he gets free shit and she doesn't). She doesn't want much from life. Just to be loved - by everybody: her parents, her dogs, her ex-boyfriends, her ex-boyfriends' dogs, her husband, her husband's ex-girlfriends, her husband's ex-girlfriend's new boyfriends, etc. Some people might call that impulse crazy, but isn't "crazy" really just a word boring people use to describe fun people? (And Jenny is really, really fun, you guys!)

In this program, you'll find stories of Jenny at her most genuine, whether it's stalking her therapist (because he knows everything about her so shouldn't she get to know everything about him?); throwing a bachelorette party so bad that one of the guests is suspected dead; or answering the eternal question: Would your best friend blow your husband on a car ride to dinner if she didn't know you were hiding in the backseat?

I Like You Just the Way I Am is about not doing the right thing - about indulging your inner crazy person. It is Jenny when she's not trying to impress anyone or come across as a responsible, level-headed member of society. With any luck it will make you better acquainted with who you really are and what you really want. Which, let's be honest, is most likely someone else's email password.

Hmm...Why am I listening to a bio of Jenny Mollen?

I applaud Jenny for being willing to put her warts out there for all to see - and there are a lot - but are we really that interested? This is the story of an actress who never makes it, then realizes her true talent may lie in writing. Her greatest claim to fame seems to be marrying American Pie actor Jason Biggs. While Jenny's writing is amusing, it is extremely crude. This usually doesn't bother me, but much of it seems gratuitous. Not a bad book; just left me wondering why her life merits a biography, at least at this point.

Setting a bad example for pretty much everyone

Exactly the woman you don't want your daughter to end up like. Not even funny.

Looking forward to the second book.

Overall, not bad for a first effort. It's really just a collection of her blog work in stories for Playboy. I honestly think her second book will be a better effort as long as she doesn't pull together a bunch stories and make them a collection. Look was a little too "short essay" for me.

not funny.

I've read other books by Tina Fey, Amy Polher, Mindy Kaling, and Rachel Dratch, however this one does not measure up. Stopped listening less than half way through. Not interesting, or funny.

Not funny

The only reason I kept listening is to remind myself of the kind of person I don’t want to be (her).

Perhaps Funnier In Written Form

Mrs. Mollen's performance was quite nice. She clearly is a very talented individual. The beginning has a number of amusing anecdotes, however, they become more sparse as the the book wears on. Additionally, the content is rather unoriginal even if they are actual events from her life. It's not like neurotic rich girl hasn't been done and that is the theme of most of the essays.
Consider Let's Pretend This Never Happened or Ellen DeGeneres's audio book-much better.

Laugh Out Loud Funny

Jenny Mollen is a crude hilarious woman. Her words are witty and self absorbed enough to draw in any twenty something year old. If you’re looking for a good laugh and want to feel not alone in your incessant need to cyber stalk people, look no further.

Non stop laughter

I couldn’t stop laughing, and usually in public like a crazy person!! Jenny killed it, loved Jason’s cameos. It was too much fun.

it's a car crash and you want to know more!

I had this sitting in my wishlist for a number of months not really sure what to think about it and whether to commit. While I was overseas with a lot of travel time to fill I had started a couple of other books but was looking for something a bit more lighthearted and wasn't finding what I wanted. I started this book and was finished within 48 hours.
She's absolutely crazy and at times cringeworthy but in a way that you just want to keep listening and know what the outcome was.
By far the best audio performance I've heard yet, with a nice surprise guest voice in there too.
Story was pretty thoroughly entertaining the whole way through too.
