Jenna Fischer is married to filmmaker James Gunn. She was part of the cast for Gunn's 2006 horror film Slither.
Jenna Fischer wrote, directed, and starred in the mockumentary LolliLove, co-starring Gunn, Linda Cardellini, Judy Greer, Lloyd Kaufman, and Jason Segel. For her role in the film, Fischer was awarded a Screen Actors Guild Emerging Actor Award. Her experience on the low-budget film (principal photography cost $1500, mostly for food) discouraged her from any future directorial aspirations, as she told a St. Louis arts and entertainment magazine:
"The directing was exhausting and the writing was painful. It was very difficult to direct and star in a movie. We also had a very small crew so I did a lot of things a normal director doesnít have to do, like make the props and serve lunch. I was simultaneously getting into character, going over my lines, set dressing the next shot, coaching an actor, and brainstorming with my D.P. Iím good at multitasking, but that was too much for me. I couldnít enjoy any one part the way I would have liked. I think Iíll stick to acting."
