This video of her geeking out about her Pokemon obsession is just too adorable to handle.

“My first Pokemon was a Charmander, and I was immediately hooked on it. I lost a bunch of weight that summer and I was a small kid cuz I would not stop playing… like I would literally be playing it and I wouldn’t stop, and I would have a stack of graham crackers next to me because I would not get up to eat.”

Opening up about her crush on Vegeta of Dragon Ball Z fame.

“Vegeta is where it’s at, Vegeta is my cartoon crush. Love him. I would have gone toon for him. I would have Roger Rabbited the sh*t out of some Vegeta.”

That time she donned a Vegeta shirt in Wrestlemania.


Hotness level over 9,000!!

On why her favorite Pokemon is Mew.

“Mew is the originator of all the other Pokémons… I actually went to the mall for those Pokémon events, those little tournaments to get me a Mew. I wanted Mew so bad. I waited in line with all the other nerds for hours. I wanted to get me a Mew, and a Mew certificate of authenticity that I taped to my wall.”

She’s admitted to wanting to play Miss Marvel in a movie if given the chance.
