- I try to stay focused on my life and do try not to be brought into the Hollywood fantasy.
- I don't always like my own behavior. I haven't known anyone who is perfect all the time.
- Growing up, being watched from the outside... it's kind of very taxing and maybe I should just do some kind of manual labor-it might be more relaxing. But I can't, it's not in my nature.
- I don't know if I was a star. I was certainly working a lot and that was strange because there were good things about it and things that were difficult.
- People who are incapable of having any kind of intimate relationship have to turn to feeling this incredible hunger and void, have to turn to some quantifiable external product to make them feel whole.
