22 year old actress Alia Shawkat is probably best known for her performances as Maeby Fünke in the hit FOX series Arrested Development. However, Alia has appeared in a few movies over the years with a very female dominated theme running through them and Shawkat admits that she is a strong believer in girl power.
Alia explained, “Girls need to stick together. Girls can be a lot meaner than boys. Boys break our hearts by not saying enough, but girls get underneath your skin. Your best friend can make you feel the worst sometimes, because she knows you the best.”
She added, “Insecurity is a driver too. It creates anger and jealousy. But once you realize that it all stems from fear, it’s easier to get to know people and trust them.” Alia Shawkat could be in line to reprise her role as Maeby Fünke if the proposed Arrested Development movie does go ahead. It is currently in the scripting stages.
