Hollywood is an industry where people have grown accustomed to rudeness.
I choose to be more prepared than I’m expected to be.
I have a habit of jumping the fence just at the right time.
I have not marketed my career on beauty and sex.
I have that Midwest sensibility that you work hard and you treat people properly and with respect.
I just don’t perceive feature films to be that much greater than what’s on television.
I keep my ego out of acting.
I personally chose not to view my political opinions because that’s not what people want to hear from me.
I think people who are smart and see life as it truly is will not judge a person by his or her ethnicity, but instead judge a person by their ability.
I think that people who have played sports have an ability to relate to people because when you’re playing you have to work on teams and with opposing players.
I try to make choices that have some kind of integrity and some kind of dignity. Sometimes that is the greatest fight.
I wasn’t a cheerleader or the prom queen. I don’t move through the world with a mirror in front of my face, and I’ve never been attracted to projects that had an emphasis on what I look like.
I will never just do television or just do feature films, because they both give me something different.
I’m curious about the people who are so desperate to become famous that they’ll do anything!
I’m going to be who I am. And if you find it offensive, if you find it to be too tough, I’m not going to lose any sleep over it.
I’m happy to be a working gal.
I’m not embarrassed for the industry I’m in, but I’m embarrassed for the people who take part in it.
I’ve finally gotten to a place where I can say, ‘You know what? You didn’t think I could do it, people.’ But I did it.
Men don’t have to tiptoe around me – you can say anything and I won’t get offended.
My mother used to say, If other people have a problem with you, that’s their problem. It’s not your problem. I still have that philosophy today.
So often we’re all tempted by the dollar and we’re tempted by the idea of being on the big screen without keeping in mind the quality of the work.
There are a lot of dysfunctional people in the entertainment industry and that’s probably why there’s so much poor behavior. Why does it have to change because one is in the entertainment industry?
