In this exclusive video for Pret-a-Reporter, the prolific but hard-to-place actress reads an excerpt from her new confessional, in which she lists all of the projects she's not in ("Bridesmaids," "Sex and the City") and suggests ways her fans can compliment her without admitting they don't even know her name.

Judy Greer has spent so much of her career telling people that she doesn't know what they recognize her from that she decided to write a book about it.

I Don't Know What You Know Me From: Confessions of a Co-Star chronicles Greer's path from small-town Michigan to Hollywood stardom – except hers is a particular kind of stardom in which an actor who has appeared in more than 80 films and television shows is still not a household name. Not that she's complaining.

In this exclusive video for Pret-a-Reporter, Greer shares some pointers from her book on how fans can approach her without revealing they don't really know who she is ("You're great – remind me of your name again?") and confirms that she was not in Bridesmaids, Sex and the City, 30 Rock or Glee. To remember exactly how you do know Greer – because trust us, you definitely do – check out her book from Doubleday, which hits shelves this Tuesday.
