Personal Quotes (17)

The thing is - and this is something that really annoys me - a lot of people mistake lightness for stupidity. If you're cold and mean and dark, you're smart. If you're sweet and charming and you get on with people, then you're not. Then, you're... bubbly.
I am a light person. I think of myself with a shield, a protective shield around me. And I think of bad things bouncing off it. Boom, boom, boom, ba-boom, ba-boom!
I got a lot of "This bloody bitch - she only got the job because of what she looks like.". - as quoted in the September 2002 issue of Playboy magazine
[on potential boyfriends] Someone who's down to earth, funny, good in bed, handsome. Actually, just handsome will do. I'm really shallow at the moment. I'm at that age when I just don't want anything challenging. I haven't got the energy. As long as they're cute, I'm there. And the less they have to say for themselves, the better.
I'm into well-being, not because of social pressures to look a certain way, but because I'm interested in living a long, full and healthy life.
[on winning a scholarship to drama school] It was amazing. Amazing! I was from a comprehensive tough school, you know, and then going into London and all the girls are all jazz hands and kissy-kissy, and daaaaarling, sweetie, darling. It was such a contrast, and it took a while for me to adjust and fit in. But within six months, I was all jazzy and kissy and smiley. I became a stage-school brat very quick.
[on stripping off for the stage play "Calender Girls"] The getting naked is the easy bit. I'll make sure I have to get naked in every contract. [laughs] In Calendar Girls, I'm working with some fantastic women. We cover ourselves with various props, but obviously there are a couple of slips now and then! Danny is cool with it, he came on the first night and he loved it. But he did tell me: "You need to slow down because you talk too quickly". I was so nervous the first night, so he gave me constructive criticism.
Sex keeps me fit and healthy. What can be better than that? It's not about crazy diets or gym workouts.
My mum was never strict. I was allowed to go out to clubs underage, watch TV, listen to whatever music I wanted to, and that made me not rebel. I have never touched a drug in my life. Why would I? My mum used to smoke cannabis in the front room, so I was never curious about it. My mum's a cool chick and in some ways we are alike. She's a strong woman, very sharp and perceptive.
Women in the 1950s were so much sexier. That's what I aspire to look like.
[on Piranha 3D (2010)] It's a big popcorn movie. It was fun to work on and it seems to have got a good response. The fans seem to love it. If you like horror and you like fish then go and see it.
[on nudity] I'm so used to it now that I'm more terrified of putting my clothes on! I haven't got any huge body hang-ups. I've got to the age where I've accepted all flaws. I know I'm never going to be perfect.
I can't run fast like Usain Bolt. I can't sing like Mariah Carey. So if people are interested in my body, then okay, that's that. I'm not going to fight against it.
My breasts are far too big for my body. I'm just a stick with boobs!
I rarely watch what I eat, or go to the gym. It's sex that keeps me fit.
I used to babysit for a couple who had a collection of naughty videos, and I would sit and watch them.
I love lingerie. I learnt a lot about it when I was an underwear model. I know what looks sexy on me.
