What did Ree Drummond say about her film debut?

Drummond is one of the most celebrated cooks on the Food Network. She has been with the cable network since 2011 and recently celebrated a decade. Ever since becoming such an icon, Drummond has been able to do many things in media and her latest venture is getting into acting. The star recently shared photos of her first movie and expressed how she was feeling.

“I was nervous filming this movie because I am not an actor and being on a movie set in Utah was a whole different experience than filming a cooking show in my own kitchen,” she recently posted on Instagram. “Fortunately, once a woman hits her fifties, the possibility of embarrassing herself really doesn’t keep her from doing anything in life.”

Drummond always has a sense of humor about everything she does and after sharing the photos from the movie set she quipped adding, “here are some behind the scenes shots of my first (and probably last!!!) acting gig.”

The Pioneer Woman said the movie Candy Coated Christmas would premiere in November.
