FUN FACTS ON WYNONNA
What celebrity do people say you look like?
Lucille Ball, Debra Messing, Madeline Kahn. Someone recently thought I was that lady on the makeup commercial. "Hey, makeup lady," they said! Were they talking about Julianne Moore or Susan Sarandon? I hope so! I MOST often get called Winona Rider. I even have the "Free Winona" t-shirt.
The craziest or most daring thing I have ever done...
Have you met my family, read the book, seen the mini-series? We love to be daring! Hmmmm, I went bungee jumping on my 30th birthday, wow! That took my crazy gene to the next level. And I love riding the Tower of Terror at Disney or the Spider Man Ride at Universal Studios with my kids! I also feel a little crazy when I ride my Harley on the Natchez Trace Parkway. I was once invited impromptu to sing "Free Bird" with Phish on stage. I also took Steven Tyler from Aeromsith out on the town after one of his shows in Nashville, that was daring for me! I definitely GO FAST in life.
What three things couldn't you live without?
My faith, my family and my fans!
