Everything the Star of ‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’ Can’t Travel Without
Bloom has some not-so-crazy tips for your next flight.
She might play a “crazy ex-girlfriend” on TV, but actress and producer Rachel Bloom is pretty sane when it comes to what she packs for a trip.
“Because my husband was in New York for so long, I got my dog certified as an emotional support animal," Bloom said. "And you can always tell when you’re on a flight coming in from L.A., with the amount of emotional support dogs on it.”
On planes, she uses a portable humidifier that plugs right into her phone to prevent her throat from getting too dry, and she’s always in her comfiest clothes.
“I wear basically pajamas on the plane. I wear the softest pants that I can find, the softest shirt that I can find. I mean sometimes I won’t wear a bra. I am just basically preparing to pretend that I’m in a bed for six, seven hours,” she told the Times.
The last two items on her carry-on list are her laptop (so she can get work done) and some magazines — even if she never ends up putting the latter to use.
“I did this thing a couple years ago where I subscribed to one magazine and somehow got like seven magazine subscriptions that I’ve been meaning to cancel, so my house is filled with magazines. I mean every single bathroom in my house is filled with all these magazines,” Bloom explained to the Times.
"So usually in my carry-on I will have some combination of magazines and then nine times out of 10 I end up falling asleep or watching a movie and I don’t finish the magazine, so I’m walking around with the same copy of The Atlantic for the whole vacation, and then I bring it back home.”
"Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" is currently on Season 3, and you can watch new episodes on Fridays at 8 p.m. EST live on the CW or stream the episodes when they hit Netflix.
