Quotes

On her passion for action...
When I was three, I used to tell my Mom I had a fire in my brain to act.

On her distinctive voice...
I'm so tired of hearing casting directors ask if I have a sore throat. The people who have told me that my voice is distinctive, it's unusual ... those people have always been close to my heart.

On her elders...
With people my age, there's not much respect for elders. But I'd like to think I'm not like that. It's so interesting to listen to what older people have to say. Your grandparents, your parents, it really affects the way you look at things.

On fame...
Whatever you do, don't go into acting for the fame, 'cause you're gonna end up unhappy. And I don't really think you can become an actress ... you are an actress

On signing a recent deal with Calvin Klein...
Just when I thought things couldn't get better, something like this happens.

On Aging...
Men age like wine, and women seem to wilt in the eyes of an audience.

On films...
I love when I see a movie and it's like you're not even in the theater, but you're right there with the characters, in their world, and going through the experience with them. That's what I hope to take away when I watch a movie, and I hope that's what people experience when they see a film - any film - I'm in.

On her maturity...
I'm the kind of person that doesn't put up with bullshit. Does that make me uncommonly mature? I don't know. I think you mature with experiences, and how other people view you and your maturity really depends upon when you have those experiences. If you have them at the age of 13, you're gonna seem really mature, and if they happen when you're 75, you're gonna seem immature. I think I was born with a great awareness of my surroundings and an awareness of other people.

On Britney Spears...
I'm actually not that type of music listener, Britney Spears type culture thing but I was telling someone earlier that it's not like I don't know the words to "Hit Me Baby One More Time," I think we all do because there are such few words. I don't have anything against it, if that's what you choose to listen to and be a part of, then so be it.

On the importance of appearance...
I think that I sort of see other actresses are kind of proud of the way they look and show it off. That's never really been my style. I really don't think that it's disgusting or wrong, if you're 18 you're 18, it's your body, it's your right to show yourself, however, I don't really take a part in that. I like to look nice, but I think that there's ways of doing it that are more tasteful than just wearing a bikini wherever you go.
