I was putting so much time and energy into just my work, but I was raised [to believe] that family comes first.
It’s easy to be taken advantage of if you’re not honest.
There are still men who come up to me today and say, ‘You were really hot in that film!’ I was 14, for God’s sake!
So much about living life, to me, is about humility and gratitude. And I’ve tried very hard to have those qualities and be that person and I’m just so disappointed in myself that I allowed it to slip.
I love playing a smart, ambitious, talented woman. Who doesn’t? That’s really fun for me.
The world is still very bigoted.
I haven’t been to rehab, I don’t do anything eccentric – I’m really boring.
I think a lot of women innately know how to play their hand. I’m not a big one for the rules.
Marriage is actually really terrifying. It doesn’t work for many people.
Guys are kind of retarded until they’re about 30.
People make mistakes – they say things they shouldn’t have or didn’t necessarily mean. But I strongly believe in consequences. If there are none, someone might feel like they’ve gotten away with something, or that what they said couldn’t have been that bad.
A girl told me my lips looked like somebody had pressed strawberry yogurt against my face.
I’m grateful people think I’m beautiful or sexy, and I suppose it’s better than the alternative, but I do try to fight it a bit so it’s not all people see me as. And I’d love to one day be in a position where I could choose a role to showcase my creativity versus just my bra size.
I think it’s better to find somebody who’s worse at everything than you. It just makes you constantly feel so good about yourself. And then, you can constantly talk about how good you are at everything, and how terrible they are at everything.
Adoption has been a part of my life and a part of my family, so it was how I wanted to start. It felt natural and right to me.
There are some things that, if you say them out loud, will hurt the other person’s feelings. I tend to say them anyway. It’s better to be honest.
I don’t want to be the person digging my own grave.
My worst habit used to be smoking but I quit.
It’s more fun to think that there are other worlds.
I think that I always loved being the centre of attention!
I dreamed about these moments, and I think I hoped I would have them, but you don’t know. So when the lucky break hits, it’s like being Cinderella and hopefully midnight doesn’t come.
I want to stay in the moment and enjoy the great things that are happening.
I’m done with the whole idea of having my own children. It doesn’t seem like any fun.
I just like to shake things up, and your hair is one way to do it.
I can hide, and my husband’s just terrible at finding me. I do like to jump out from behind doors and scare him.
