Elizabeth Lail is fully aware she knows one too many Joes. 

The 29-year-old actress has starred in a variety of films and television shows, but in both her professional and personal life, she can’t seem to escape people—or animals—named Joe!

As E! News’ Erin Lim pointed out on The Rundown this week, there’s Lail’s new NBC show Ordinary Joe, the “Joe” her character Guinevere Beck fell for on Netflix’s You, and most importantly, her cat named Jo—the latter Lail made clear was named pre-You. Plus, it’s technically short for Josephine! 

“I think it’s like a good luck charm at this point,” Lail responded. “It must be. The world is like, ‘These are for you. All the Joes.'” 

Looking back at her experience with the fictional Joe played by Penn Badgley on You, Lail recalled how chill the actor was.

“He was meditating every morning in his dressing room,” she explained, noting that Badgley’s a member of the Baháʼí faith. “[He] was very happy to chat with me all about the religion.”
