When asked about her feelings on McKinnon, 38, portraying her, Baskin admitted she feels as if it is "a strange choice."
"She's so much younger than I am," Baskin explained in the episode on Wednesday, March 16. "I would've thought they would've picked somebody that was older and less funny to be me."
However, she did concede that the Saturday Night Live comedian might have been a good move because of the actress' funny personality, which she could potentially express in her characterization of Baskin.
"I'm glad I may actually come out of this with a personality with Kate McKinnon playing me. SO that could be nice, but I think she's an amazing actress," she admitted. "And she seems to have a huge range and she's capable of pulling off some real convincing impersonations with her, just I mean, she can change her face and voice and all of that. And so I think she could probably be whoever she wants to be for the camera."

While Baskin doesn't seem to have any concerns over McKinnon's acting abilities, she did say that she wishes the Bombshell actress would have reached out to her for research on the role.
"I would hope that, that she would want to find out who I am and what I'm about an that at the very least she would listen to my diary posts that I put out on YouTube so that she knows what was actually going on during that period of time," Baskin told the podcast host.
"But I saw another interview with somebody else who was in that show and they were saying that they didn't want to learn about the character because they wanted to be true to the script and not to whatever their influence was of that person," she continued. "I found that kind of unsettling, that it's more important that you stick to the script, then you actually portray these people for who they are."
Baskin also added in the interview that she doesn't have much hope for the Peacock show to tell her story accurately, as she stated: "They're not going to get it correct. I can guarantee that because the media never does, but how far off base they are, that'll be the real telltale sign of whether or not they had any intention of doing the right thing."
