OK, she’s not fat at all. In fact, she’s rather hot. But Elizabeth Mitchell does like to fib.
The former Highland Park resident was on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to promote the return of V. She discussed how she’s been telling people for years that she’s 40, even though she didn’t reach that milestone until Saturday, and how she convinced her son that Halloween is in November (and got her neighbors to play along) because she was busy on Oct. 31.
Coincidentally, Kimmel is featuring alumnae of my alma mater, the Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, on consecutive nights. Mitchell will be followed by Erykah Badu. Rather than lies, I’m betting Kimmel talks to her about the naked truth.
