My favorite part of my appearance is my height. I'm five foot one and I feel feminine being small.




It was a lot of fun being a child actress. It suited me. I don't think it suits everybody, but I was in it because I had a passion, not because my parents wanted me to make money. If other kids want to do it, and they really like acting, go for it.




I act with my gut instincts.




Yes, I was actually an acting teacher for a while.




When I get a role, I try to delve as deeply as possible into the character.




You really have to be a morning person if you want to be a teacher.




I'm a night owl.




My role in 'Legally Blonde' was really rewarding, because I had so much fun working on the movie. I've had really rewarding experiences on tiny low budget films that you'll never see but where I had a cool time creating characters as well. I love almost all of the characters I've played.




I've always wanted to act and I can't think of anything else I'd want to do, honestly.




I've never had plastic surgery, but if they made a new invention for making people taller, I'd be the first to have the surgery.




I love to work.




I've always wanted to act since I was little.




If a woman is comfortable with herself, I think that's what radiates. I think the moment you start questioning your body and looks is when you get into trouble.




I was so naive when I began acting, professionally.
