I think most of us are raised with preconceived notions of the choices we're supposed to make. We waste so much time making decisions based on someone else's idea of our happiness - what will make you a good citizen or a good wife or daughter or actress. Nobody says, 'Just be happy - go be a cobbler or go live with goats.'
I don't know if I always want to be in front of the camera. I love producing, I love the camaraderie. I love the adventures. I love the stress.
I feel like when you have an unauthorized police badge and something that looks like it could be a concealed weapon in the small of your back that when you, someone crosses you, pisses you off, road rage, I think just the slight badge and the little moving away of the jacket and not losing eye contact does amazing things.
I'm aware that I can be annoying.
Racism, anti-Semitism, homophobia, sexism, anything Nazi and a boatload of other things have no place in my life.
I think everything is going to be devastatingly sad - when the phone rings, I know somebody in my family's been hurt, somebody's going to die. I'm sure a therapist would go, 'That's not a good way to live,' but every time it's not that bad thing, I'm so thankful and appreciative.
Latinos, Asians, African-Americans, women - we're all trying to find our place in this world of cinema and television and theater. And the great thing with comedy is that most of the time, you could be orange. It doesn't matter, as long you're funny.
I don't like to fly. I've never been a good flyer. I have a lot of friends that have permanent nail marks in their arms... The moaning that comes from me when there is turbulence. It's awkward for everyone around.
I basically became a cheerleader because I had a very strict mom. That was my way of being a bad girl.
I find that with some girls, the words 'work' and 'education' have gotten a bad rap.
The universe, it balances. It makes sure you don't get a head that's too big. I love it.
There's something sexy about a gut. Not a 400-pound beer gut, but a little paunch. I love that.
People came to my parents' parties because they were going to have fun and, if lucky, our mother would belly dance. What they didn't know was that the hostess made sure every morsel placed in front of them was pure and without anything artificial, no matter what the cost.
I was afraid of being a failure, of not having the best time or of being chicken. But every year I get older I think, What was I fearing last year?' You forget. And then you move on.
Falling in love-you should go with it, regardless of whether or not your heart gets smashed. You'll be a better person.
No one has ever bought me underwear, and I'm a little bummed about that. Maybe it's not such a big deal any more.
Human beings exist that have integrity, that know how to keep their mouth shut, that know the bigger picture, that don't sell out their friends.
Being in front of a camera, in a nice dress, getting all dressed up, is extreme. There's a lot of other extreme situations, you know, just getting out of bed sometimes is extreme - but I do it. Just got to do it, just got to get up. Put your sweatpants on, brush off the dog hair and just get out of the house!
I've always wanted to do a female buddy film, the kind the guys get to do.
In our film business, they say it's recession-proof, but there's no such thing. I think what it's done is there's been an increase in demand for high-quality product. If you understand the business side of it, there's a way to balance it.
