Jenna Fischer in Marie Claire

I received this email from Jenna Fischer yesterday:


Attached is a feature I did for the September issue of Marie Claire on newsstands now. The magazine shot a bunch of TV folks and the photos are all amazing!

The photographer is the same guy who shot my nude photo for Jane magazine a couple of years ago. I often get nervous during photo shoots. I just feel out of my element.

After doing a number of these, I have gained a new respect for models. It is not easy to pose for photos! This photographer only uses natural light, which makes the whole thing feel very candid and relaxed. It was a really neat experience.

I shot the same day as Elizabeth Reaser — she’s the coolest. The crew were all talking about how fun Molly Shannon and Selma Blair were to work with. They were first up for the day and already finished by the time I arrived. I was sorry to miss them!

There is a tiny spoiler about the upcoming season in the mini-interview.
I wasn’t allowed to say any more than that. Enjoy!


Thank you, Jenna, for sharing this! Photo after the jump.

  1. ‘This season they will have to deal with a long distance relationship’.. I keep forgetting that :( should be interesting…

  2. That’s great that Jenna can send e-mails from the trunk of Rainn’s car. [from tanster: i know! she’s a trooper!]

    Great photo!

  3. Wow. Just wow. She is amazingly gorgeous, but in a classy kind of way. (Perhaps it’s a certain…Crawford-ness?)

    “…deal with a long distance relationship”? I can’t imagine Pam fooling around (I know Jim wouldn’t), but somehow this wording seems to suggest another love interest. Maybe a design school classmate sweeps her off her feet? Good lord I hope not!

  4. god she has the best hair. I have never seen it look bad. Well Pam’s hair was a little ‘meh’ (though I prefer S2 Pam hair to Fancy New Beesley hair…)

  5. sticious, I was going to comment on that too! I guess Rainn gave her a bit of internet access. ;)

    but Jenna looks gorgeous as usual! very nice shoot.

  6. Jenna looks beautiful! I’m a bit nervous for JAM but they’ll be fine, Jim wouldn’t let her get away(in a total non-controlling way but in romantic way….you know what I mean)

  7. yikes – $3K dress on the grass!!!

    but she does look very good – more than very good!

    do NOT like that “spoiler”… nope. not one bit.

  8. This season? The whole season? The long distance thing is only while she’s gone over the summer and that’s only one episode, since the premiere will span over the whole summer.

  9. Wow she looks beautiful. That dress is muy expensive though. Over 3500 bucks. Wowza! I wonder if she got to keep it? ha!

    The Jim/Pam spoiler has me intrigued. I knew the smooth sailing wouldn’t last long.

  10. there doesn’t have to be a 3rd party involved. long distance is just hard. a little season 2-esque tension i can handle, what doesn’t kill them will make them stronger right?

    p.s. jenna is so beautiful it is incredible. i hope season 5 pam has long hair!

  11. also “this season” doesn’t unnecessarily mean “all season”.
    we tallyheads love to deconstruct sentences!!

  12. She is just plain adorable. Hmm, so I guess maybe there will be some rough water for our Jam. I hope they can endure! Thank you for sharing!
