Kelly admitted that the actors “all thought it was some kind of joke.”
“I mean, we didn’t think it was going to come from anything,” she added. “We were the first season of ‘American Idol,’ so we were there for that paycheck that [SAG-AFTRA, also known as the Screen Actors Guild, a labor union for performers and others in the entertainment industry] gives you, to pay some bills.
