Zosia Mamet Recalls the Weirdest Mispronunciation of Her Name
Girls star Zosia Mamet holds one of the most mispronounced names in the business—a fact that she readily accepts. And, as it turns out, it's something that's not lost on the film industry, either, which is why it was written into the script for the fourth episode of Kate Spade New York's #MissAdventure series starring Mamet and Anna Kendrick.
The scene opens with Mamet waiting for a car, in which the driver asks, "Zoh-see-ah?"
"Uhh, yeah, it's Zah-shah," she replies, finally putting to rest any confusion as to how to correctly say her name.
When InStyle chatted with her about her role at the episode's screening, we had to know—what was the weirdest way someone has ever mispronounced her name?
"It was more of a misinterpretation of my name, but many, many years ago, I ordered a drink at a coffee shop and gave them my name, and for five minutes, this guy was calling out, 'Soon-dra, Soon-dra!'" she recalls. "And finally, I realized it was my drink and was like, 'Oh, I’m Soon-dra.' How do you get Soon-dra from Zosia?!"
