“My mother is a nurse practitioner, so I’m like a pharmacy,” admits Cecily Strong, whose film The Bronze is out in theaters now. “I’ve got a bottle of Aleve, heartburn pills, cough drops — there’s something for everything!” The single Saturday Night Live comedian, 32, gives Us a dose of the essentials in her Coach carryall.
Off the Record
“I write tons of notes on my iPhone 6s. I’ve got pitches, scene ideas, script lists … I’d feel so violated if someone went into my notes app.”
“My grandfather was a coin collector, and when he passed, my grandma put a hole through a coin and made it into a necklace. I always keep it with me. It’s my lucky charm.”
“I’m mildly hypoglycemic, so I always have different Kind bars that open and crumble. I’ll have to clean melted peanut butter off my jewelry. I’m a gross person.”
No Common Scents
“I carry Secret deodorant and perfume. I like Marc Jacobs Daisy, but I use anything hard-core.”
“I get chapped lips all the time because I don’t drink enough water. So I overcompensate with lip balm. I love Burt’s Bees and Jack Black.”
