"It's really easy to get down on yourself and get really self-centered in this industry. If you don't get the role, it's because of the way you look -- it's always about you."
"To tell you the truth, I hope I don't have to be here forever. The only thing I've ever wanted in my life is to be a mom and a wife. And, really, would I want to raise my family here? Probably not."
"I hung out with guys all the time. I was very active in sports. I didn't watch a lot of TV or go to movies very much."
