“My life is good because I am not passive about it. I invest in what is real. Like real people, to do real things, for the real me.”
“I’ve had a great deal of suffering in my life. I’ve lost people – my first cousin, my best friend in a car accident. I’ve had a lot of really heartbreaking, difficult things. But all of those things have strengthened my resolve to make the best of my life.”
“Even actresses that you really admire, like Reese Witherspoon, you think, ‘Another romantic comedy?’ You see her in something like Walk the Line and think, ‘God, you’re so great!’ And then you think, ‘Why is she doing these stupid romantic comedies?’ But of course, it’s for money and status.”
“The best way to mend a broken heart is time and girlfriends.”
“It’s a waste of time for people to say things they think other people want to hear, or try and come off in a certain way. I try to be as honest as I can.”

“When I pass a flowering zucchini plant in a garden, my heart skips a beat.”
“You know, I use organic products, but I get [laser treatment]. It’s what makes life interesting, finding the balance between cigarettes and tofu.”
“We’re human beings and the sun is the sun—how can it be bad for you? I don’t think anything that’s natural can be bad for you.”
“Some days I feel like everyone in my world has plugged themselves into my kidneys. I’m so tired.”
“I would be scared to go under the knife, but you know, talk to me when I’m 50. I’ll try anything. Except I won’t do Botox again, because I looked crazy. I looked like Joan Rivers!”

“I know people that I respect and admire and look up to who have had extra-marital affairs.”

“The simpler things are, the happier they are.”
