She once told in an interview, "I had been wanting to try and learn how to meditate, and I did research on the different types of meditation. Transcendental Meditation seemed the easiest, and I liked that it wasn't religious in any way."

Judy Greer Political Views

Judy doesn't seem to have made any political comments as such. However, she featured alongwith Kate Beckinsale and Andrea Savage in a satirical video for Funny or Die's political wing, playing proud Republican women. The video tries to epitomize and mock what is perceived as the belittling of women (as mothers and professionals) by Republicans. The three mockfully discuss that their lives would be quite easier if the government could make all of their reproductive health decisions for them. This suggests that she opposes the 'War on Women'- type laws shouted and backed by Republicans.
