"For me, I've been working in the industry for a really long time," she noted on Daily Pop. "One thing I've learned is: you have to say and speak what you want into existence, along with doing the work."

Her interviewer, Victor Cruz, noted that she scored two of her most recent roles (in Insecure and Sister Act 3) after simply asking the respective stars Issa Rae and Whoopi Goldberg to participate.

The former athlete then asked the Scream Queens alum where she got all of her confidence from.

"We all need a little bit more," she said. "I don't know if it's confidence or just sheer reactionary things that end up happening and working out for me."

During her talk, she also discussed her job as the host of the new Disney+ competition show Foodtastic, and while doing so, she revealed that she's also quite skilled in the kitchen!

"I actually was going to go to culinary school right before the pandemic happened, so I'm going to have to revisit that at some point," she shared. "But right now, I'm pretty much at level 4, level 5 ... maybe 6 on a good day."

Palmer also has her down moments, as she's previously shared that she struggles with anxiety and depression. To get over the hump, she relies on a few tried practices.

"Just closing my eyes, calming my mind, calling a close friend, or praying. Sometimes it's good to affirm if you’re feeling bad," the Hustlers actress explained. "I’ll say, 'God, thank you so much for making me a strong and positive person, no matter what I’m going through.' You just control your mind by switching scripts and just making it think something different. That also helps me a lot."
