I think I can deceive people. I'm like, the nice, sweet girl when you meet me. And I don't have any bad intentions. But I'm a bad girl too.




I never count calories, but I eat so well.




People think, 'Wow, you're an actress, so people must be really nice to you and kiss your ass.' NOBODY kisses my ass.




What I learned from doing 'The Graduate' was it doesn't matter what the medium is... as long as the material is inspiring and the characters are well written.




I don't just want to be the girl boys get excited about, I have no desire for people to see me in a sexy way. I won't do nudity ever.




I don't want to be known as the Aerosmith chick, but it's fun to put on the boots and makeup and act like a tough girl.




I don't take any of the medications I took when I was younger: antibiotics, antacids, aspirin, asthma inhalers, ulcer medication, allergy shots.




Yoga makes me feel really sexy.




I love cooking and one of my favourite things to do with my husband is open up the refrigerator.




When I was 18 years old I went to Shakespeare Company, the school, and I wrote a poem about my leaves - I felt like a tree that had no leaves. That is the life at 18.




I knew that I wanted to be a film actress and I never watched TV. I was always too busy.




My favorite thing in the world is a box of fine European chocolates which is, for sure, better than sex.




One of the things that often frustrates me with cookbooks is that there are one or two recipes that are really good and the rest of them are not so great.




I don't feel like a dream girl, but I think it's really nice. I guess a part of me wishes I got that sort of attention in my real life. Because in my real life, I'm this weird, dorky girl who just hangs out with her dog.




I'm always looking for inspiration.




I'd die if I was Madonna. I'd die. God, what a horrible way to live. And Michael Jackson! To be so famous and to feel so isolated. I feel so bad for them. I don't know how it feels, and I hope it never happens to me.




My boyfriend calls me 'princess', but I think of myself more along the lines of 'monkey' and 'retard'.




Being vegan just gives you such great karma.




When you're offered things, it makes it so much easier to be indecisive. And it's silly because you can pass on some really amazing things.




I'm reachable for people, I'm not out of their league. I'm just a normal girl.




From 19 to 28 there was a lot of turmoil in my life, but in a stuck way. Then, around 28, my life started to get shaken up. I realized I wanted to grow more and that anything that wasn't working in my life, I could fix it. I feel like I came into my womanhood. And that was when I got married.




There was a point when I was so sick of this physical perfection thing that I thought it would be good for all young girls to eat burgers and sweets as a rebellion but I don't think that anymore because it's not healthy.




I think any time anybody says something nasty about you, it's hard to deal with it.




Creative collaboration is awesome.




I'm so comfortable and happy with the woman that I am.




I'm surprised by the fact that I like the word 'husband.' I thought I would hate it.




I don't have time for friends.




I was a foodie and I continue to be a foodie.




I hate to shop.




I'm very uncomfortable with my body, and I'm not interested in people seeing it on screen.




I came from a generation of actors for whom TV was taboo.




I don't know what anxiety is like anymore.




I think people want love in their lives.




I've had so many crushes on gay boys.




I've been wanting to have a baby since I was 2 years old - I'm destined to be a mother.




As human beings we're so cynical, so uncompassionate.
