Leisha—Uh Huh, It's Her
The versatile actor-musician who makes us laugh as The L Word's quirky Alice is gaining a new following with her latest musical outing. In a candid interview, she discusses her choices, passions and what the future holds.
Insightful, charming, and funny even at 7am, Leisha Hailey, 36, is one of the most affable women in show business. Here, Hailey shares her thoughts on her musical metamorphosis from Murmurs’ alterna-pop singer to Uh Huh Her's electro-pop fusion. She opens up about her innocent youth in New York and Nebraska, her fateful first trip to a gay bar (the Village's stalwart, the old Cubby Hole), and what she really thinks about gay Hollywood's tacit Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy.
