Our show is less about a girl who is doing miracles and more about the domino effect of this girl's life, and how everyone else is affected. Our show seems to be a questioning show as opposed to an action sort of fairy tale.




I have tons of jewelry. I like to wear a lot of it.




I remember when I first started in the business, I lost a lot of friends. Some were jealous, some were annoyed at the fact that I was an actress.




I've been kind of submerged in my own little geographic location for a really long time in Venice Beach.




I think that people are definitely interested in the idea that Joan has conversations with God.




A business like acting is 90% luck. You can be a star one minute and out of work the next.




I think I relate to all the characters in one way or another. I'm a chameleon like that.




A lot of people think I'm cynical when I talk about acting. The truth of the matter is, I just don't want someone to get some lame advice that will send them in the wrong direction.




My advice is to make acting your second career choice.




A lot of young poets today, from what I've heard and experienced, can't get their heads past George W. Bush, and I've heard so many poems about this democracy and this era of politics that I'm kind of bored by it.




Other people like Neil Young and Dennis Hopper, those are just really close knit family friends.




My parents cultured me a lot and they introduced me to a lot of artists, a lot of their friends.




People who have seen me read usually come up afterwards and invite me to be a part of something.




My father comes from a generation of film that actors my age don't even know about, which is really sad.




People in real life cuss God out when they're angry. That's all real.




If it comes back, I think that Friday night is not a good night to be on.




I don't think it's always good to read lots of poetry.




This will be the fourth time I've seen this film. I'm very proud of it and I think it's a great movie for women of any age. And almost every single man I've talked to has admitted to crying.




If you believe that God put you here to act, then you have to be different. Go into casting offices, with something other girls don't have.




One of my good friends is Christian, goes to church every Sunday, very religious. I'm fine with that and I will never judge her.




I think any time you have too much education in one certain field, that can sometimes play against you.




And one of my other friends could not believe in God if he came down and tapped her on the shoulder. She's a biologist - a student at UCLA - and I don't judge her either, because I really believe that God is a personal opinion, and only that.




Honestly, I am not trying to discourage anyone from becoming an actress, but if you want to become one be prepared to face everything that comes - along with it.




I liked the humor of it, I've always enjoyed a sense of humor in God and in religion and in spirituality.




I haven't had a lot of celebrities around me growing up.




I think at the end of the day this movie is respecting what we as women go through as we grow up. The experiences, what we deal with, other women, things about images, things that we deal with as women.




I think I had an advantage in the sense that I wasn't raised religiously.
