I was told to avoid the business all together because of the rejection. People would say to me, 'Don't you want to have a normal job and a normal family?' I guess that would be good advice for some people, but I wanted to act.
I guess we'd be living in a boring, perfect world if everybody wished everybody else well.
True love brings up everything - you're allowing a mirror to be held up to you daily.
The greater your capacity to love, the greater your capacity to feel the pain.
The best smell in the world is that man that you love.
Once you figure out who you are and what you love about yourself, I think it all kind of falls into place.
Really try to follow what it is that you want to do and what your heart is telling you to do.
There are no regrets in life, just lessons.
Where would you be without friends? The people to pick you up when you need lifting? We come from homes far from perfect, so you end up almost parent and sibling to your friends - your own chosen family. There's nothing like a really loyal, dependable, good friend. Nothing.
When someone follows you all the way to the shop and watches you buy toilet roll, you know your life has changed.
Life is funny. Life isn't categorized into comedy, drama, action, is it?So I don't know why they try to categorize everything. It drives me crazy-why it would have to be just a romantic comedy or... I want to have a little integrity, a little story, you know?
I don't know if I ever really get mad in real life. It's what my shrink was saying to me all those years: You need to get mad! I think rage is so ugly. I just think there's a way to be mad and discuss it.
I am trying to think of the last time that I just said, 'What the hell!' and did something crazy.
The first time I kissed Brad my knees went weak - I literally lost my breath!
I couldn't have found a better man than Brad. He still opens doors for me and brings me flowers. He's the sweetest goofball on the planet.
