In the initial season of a show, you're figuring out your character and their life and their background and you're putting together all the chapters of the book.
Life is too short, and I'm Italian. I'd much rather eat pasta and drink wine than be a size 0.

I was lucky. My family is wonderful. And it's funny, because most of my best friends come from very large families. So it always felt as if I had lots of siblings, though in the end I had to leave them and go home. I kind of got the best of both worlds as a kid.

Mystery makes movie stars! If you see someone on the cover of the weeklies all the time, why would you want to pay to see them in a movie?
The only two men I have time for are Barack Obama and my trainer.
I've always been the long-term relationship, go-home-and-meet-mom girl.

Me, I'd prefer to have a good reputation rather than getting press for being scandalous, getting drunk in public, staying out late and so on.
I get to do what I love every day. I get to crawl into someone else's head and I love that.
