I have walked away from friendships when I’ve realized that someone smiles to someone’s face and talks about them the minute they walk out of a room. I have no room in my life for that kind of negative energy anymore.
It devastates me now that I have been reduced to a Hollywood statistic – another joke marriage.
I think the sexiest thing on anybody is intelligence. I respect somebody who has a brain and wants to use it more than a pretty face and status.
Being a teenager is an amazing time and a hard time. It’s when you make your best friends – I have girls who will never leave my heart and I still talk to. You get the best and the worst as a teen. You have the best friendships and the worst heartbreaks.
I own four copies of Robin WIlliams’s Live on Broadway comedy special for HBO. One in Wilmington, one in L.A., one in my trailer, and one at my parents’ house. I can watch it over and over again and it never gets old. He is the funniest, wittiest man on the planet!
I love boxing. There’s something fierce about using your body’s force that way.
I get to experiment with a lot of looks with my character so that’s really fun for me. It’s like getting to paint a new canvas everyday.
I get to do what I love every day. I get to crawl into someone else’s head and I love that.
I enjoy getting riled up, and nothing’s gonna do that for you like a good scary movie.
Getting wasted is only OK when you’re young enough to not know better.
I want to play everything. I really want to do it all.
Brooke and I share some similarities. We’re both passionate, fiercely loyal people. But she is far more outlandish than I’d ever be, particularly with her body and her sexuality. Brooke has made herself weak for men – she only gained self-confidence from their attention.
I want to get married again and have kids and even adopt.
Fashion is in my blood. Growing up, I was always clacking around the house in my mother’s shoes.
We’ve all known a John Tucker. We’ve either known one, dated one or our best friend has dated one. I think a lot of men at one point or another have been a John Tucker.
In the initial season of a show, you’re figuring out your character and their life and their background and you’re putting together all the chapters of the book.
Life is too short, and I’m Italian. I’d much rather eat pasta and drink wine than be a size 0.
I’ve always been the long-term relationship, go-home-and-meet-mom girl.
You know, my parents have always been incredibly supportive. I’m an only child, so we’re very close.
There’s just the three of us. They’re exceptional parents but also great friends. My father was able to take his hobby, photography, and turn it into a beautiful career. So when they saw how much I loved acting, they were 100 percent behind me.
I’m not a celebrity. I don’t call myself a celebrity. I’m an actor.
I’m a bit of a worrier, to an extreme. I’ll crack a joke, then worry if I’ve offended someone – even when they’re laughing. I have a guilt complex, always worrying.
I’d rather hang out with five people that I love than with 400 strangers at a club who are all doing the up-and-down inspection thing. They appraise everybody from head to toe – the outfit, the handbag, the shoes, how much they weigh… I can’t stand it!
I was lucky. My family is wonderful. And it’s funny, because most of my best friends come from very large families. So it always felt as if I had lots of siblings, though in the end I had to leave them and go home. I kind of got the best of both worlds as a kid.
I think it’s easy for people to assume that fame is equal to glory, but it can be a very isolating experience.
When you realize who the good people are in your life, you’re so lucky.
I wanted to be a doctor when I was a kid, but I started doing theater in high school because it was a requirement. At first, I was completely irritated. But I ended up loving it.
Life throws some curveballs at you and you go where it takes you.
Me, I’d prefer to have a good reputation rather than getting press for being scandalous, getting drunk in public, staying out late and so on.
I was a total education geek. I loved school. I loved learning. I loved doing homework. All of my books and notebooks from high school are underlined and highlighted and there are notes all over the margins. And you know, I was a theater kid too. I was all over the place.
Marriage is not about age; it’s about finding the right person.
To be happy, it first takes being comfortable being in your own shoes. The rest can work up from there.
Of course, everybody makes mistakes, and we’ve all been young and stupid. But people need to have a sense of respect, particularly in this business, because hundreds of people are ready to take your place at any time. Maybe some people should think about that.
Mystery makes movie stars! If you see someone on the cover of the weeklies all the time, why would you want to pay to see them in a movie?
People care about my personal life. But really I’m dorky! I drink beer and go to football games. And ya know, sit in my house in a t-shirt on the weekends and play with my dog!
The hardest situation to stay happy in, I think, is when you’re trying to find love, and yourself at the same time. It just doesn’t seem to fit well.
The only two men I have time for are Barack Obama and my trainer.
