We talked to Hannah Hart about her new memoir, “Buffering”

Maybe you know Hannah Hart from her hilarious YouTube cooking show and cookbook My Drunk Kitchen, from her new movie Dirty30, or from her antics with internet BFFs Grace Helbig and Mamrie Hart. But one thing’s for certain: You’ve never seen her like this before.

In front of the camera, Hannah is charming, witty, and authentic; even when she touches on controversial subjects, her relentless optimism shines through. So when she announced she was opening up about her private struggles during and leading up to her last five years in the spotlight, we were all ears.

Hannah’s new book, Buffering: Unshared Tales of a Life Fully Loaded, is a collection of personal essays that tell the story we don’t know about her life. We chatted with Hart about her memoir—out today!—and think you’re really going to love it.
