“When you’re queer and you get home at the end of the day, and close the door, there’s a part of you that goes: “Phew...I made it. Nobody beat me up and nobody called me a dyke on the street. Today was a good day..” - Lea DeLaria, in an excerpt from the new book True Style is What’s Underneath: The Self-Acceptance Revolution, available now wherever books are sold.
Lea is thrilled to join the cast of Cars 3 as Miss Fritter, a local legend at the Thunder Hollow Speedway demolition derby. Fritter’s formidable school-bus size is intimidating, but it’s her smoke stacks of doom, razor-sharp stop sign and crazy collection of her victims’ license plates that usually steers her opponents in the other direction. Cars 3 will be released in theaters nationwide on June 16th.
Lea returns to Conan to discuss her SAG Award win, being single, and the enduring allure of Matlock.
