Posted Monday March 26, 2012 4:47 PM GMT

With her new movie "The Dictator" set to hit theaters on May 11th, Anna Faris churned up promotions by landing the cover of the April/May 2012 issue of BlackBook magazine.

The 35-year-old actress showed off a steamier side for the Kate Orne shot spread while talking about her upcoming movies and getting her start in acting at the young age of nine.

Highlights from Miss Faris' interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to BlackBook!

On landing a role in 'The Dictator':
“We shot a lot. It’ll be a surprise to me what storylines they keep in and what they don’t. When it comes down to it, I think I got the role because I’m willing to just make an a** out of myself.”

On shooting 'The Dictator':
“You have to really be on your toes be very malleable. Sacha definitely thrives on making people uncomfortable. He’s like a bulldog that way. When he senses he’s making someone mildly uncomfortable, he just clenches on and won’t let go. It’s fun for an actor to be able to play off that. You just had to be alert. There was a lot of Red Bull-drinking on my part.”

On getting her start at the age of nine playing Young Clara in Arthur Miller’s Danger Memory:
“I got $200 for the run of the show and I bought myself a piano phone. That was my first big purchase. I was cast in all dramatic stuff: a play about the Holocaust, Heidi, To Kill a Mockingbird, and these plays that my parents just loved and were very—whatever the opposite of Scary Movie is.”

On her new project titled 'Besties':
“It’s inspired by a stalker roommate. My agent wants me to be the girl who is getting stalked, but I really want to be the stalker girl, I really do. It would be so fun. I think I’m going to have to put my foot down. It would kill me to work with another actress who is having all the fun.”
