Personal Quotes (14)

Just 10 minutes of it and I'm a different person" - about playing the drums.
Horseback riding is my passion. Other than work. People can't imagine me getting dirty, but that's what I love about it.
You do a job, your show gets canceled. You get used to it.
People tend to think they know you when you come into their TV's every week. They think you are different than who you are. Don't believe everything you hear.
James Garner is like a peaceful river through our chaos.
I love all music. Right now I am loving Josh Grobin and Kelly Clarkson.
I love the fashion world. I love clothes. I love style.
After everything happened, we all got super tight. I can't deny it. We all just love each other. James Garner and David Spade came on and we fell in love with them too. We've just become a family all over again. We don't want to lose anyone again.
Finally there was a moment when it just hit me. John wouldn't want me to sit on my butt for the rest of my life feeling sorry for myself or sorry for him. As cheesy as it sounds, he would have wanted us to go on.
For me, what I really want to come out of it is to show people that I can hold together a movie, be the number one character and play someone who is twenty or twenty-one.
I will always be the way I was a couple years ago before anything happened. And that's to my parents' credit, my amazing parents who have been around me my whole life and raised me right. I'm very happy with what has happened so far.
John was the smartest and most amazing comedian I've ever worked with. I think more than teaching me about acting or comedy, he taught me about life and the love of people and respect of people.
My whole family actually, but my parents. I had such a normal and amazing childhood. I've been so lucky. My parents are cool and normal. They don't talk about the business and I still have stuff to do at their house.
The final phone call that said we're going to be picked up again was just a miracle. We've overcome the impossible and we're still pushing forward. I know John is smiling and so happy that he gets to watch us on TV.
