Who has been your biggest mentor on the show?
Nat Dormer. I can ask her the most stupid embarrassing questions. I’ll be like “so what does it feel like to be in love?” and she will tell me and give advice. She’s probably my biggest mentor just in general life.

Retta & Ming Na: on being actors and children of immigrant parents

Retta: African parents are like that too, you guys! (wipes tears)

Ming-Na Wen: (laughs) I know, right? It's true.

Retta: I was supposed to be a neurosurgeon. Can you imagine?

Ming-Na Wen: *hugs her*

Retta: My parents are from Liberia, and Liberians are ALL about school. It's like no joke. Most of them send their kids to the States to go to school because they think that's where the best schools are, that sort of thing. And I was a math science girl, I was pre-med. I was supposed to be a neurosurgeon.

Retta: And I remember when I started doing stand up, I was like, "shit, my mother is going to be like, 'are you fucking kidding me right now?'" And I remember calling my mom and saying, "So I'm going to drive to California and do the stand up thing so I can get into TV."

Retta: And my mom-- you know she didn't freak out like I thought she was totally going to freak out--My dad freaked out. He was like, "Please get health insurance." That was his big thing, "GET HEALTH INSURANCE."

Retta: But my mom was like, "Just remember you're carrying around your father's last name. So don't embarrass him." She was like, "Do the best that you can. Don't go playing. If you're going to do it, do it." So I dropped my last name.

Retta: But God bless, because a lot of parents wouldn't...

Ming-Na Wen: You know, we have to talk. Because I dropped my stage last name Wen for the longest time when I did ER (Which, by the way, I got to tell my mom, "I got to be a doctor for 5 years.") because of same issues, fatherly things.

Ming-Na Wen: But now I have it back because I'm proud being who I was born as, and...We have so much to talk about, girl.

According to Stop Patriarchy, Mark Ruffalo sent a speech to be read at an abortion rights rally this weekend in Mississippi in which he expressed his frustration with the state legislature’s ongoing attempts to close every last women’s health centers that offer abortion services.
The Clarion-Ledger reports that over 100 supporters gathered at the Jackson Women’s Health Organization, and listened to a personal account of Ruffalo’s about the issue of abortion rights, in which he mentioned his mother’s struggle to obtain an abortion when she was young:

I am a man. I could say this has nothing to do with me. Except I have two daughters and I have a mother who was forced to illegally have an abortion in her state where abortion was illegal when she was a very young woman. It cost $600 cash. It was a traumatizing thing for her. It was shameful and sleazy and demeaning. When I heard the story I was aghast by the lowliness of a society that would make a woman do that. I could not understand its lack of humanity; today is no different.

Ruffalo reportedly referenced the United States as it existed pre-Roe v. Wade as “relic of an America that was not free nor equal nor very kind”, saying that it “we have worked long and hard to leave behind” that time:

My own mother fought to make herself more than a possession; she lived her life as a mother who chose when she would have children, and a wife who could earn a living if she so chose. I want my daughters to enjoy that same choice. I don’t want to turn back the hands of time to when women shuttled across state lines in the thick of night to resolve an unwanted pregnancy, in a cheap hotel room just south of the state line. Where a transaction of $600 cash becomes the worth of a young woman’s life. So that is why I am lending my voice to you and your movement today. Because I actually trust the women I know. I trust them with their choices, I trust them with their bodies and I trust them with their children.

Ruffalo has been politically active before; he’s a vocal opponent of fracking. And while his characterization of the impact of Roe v. Wade as a “law of the land for decades” is slightly historically inaccurate – anti-choice supporters have been chipping away at Roe v. Wade since that Supreme Court ruling came down – his decision to discuss abortion via women who have actually gone through it is a welcome relief from all the men talking about how they know thetruth about the experience.
