Personal Quotes (4)

Freddy vs. Jason (2003) actually kind of landed in my lap. I went out for the audition, and I think, two hours later, my agent called me back and said 'Kelly, you got the part!'
The song I have on repeat right now would probably have to be Chris Brown's "Beautiful People". It's such an amazing record. As soon as I hear it, I can't stop moving. And I smile so big and it's great when music makes you do that.
[on Oprah] Nobody's perfect, but she comes so close! She's like the female version of God. She inspires me to work hard and give back.
[on Sade] I've never heard music that makes you feel so warm and at ease, besides maybe Miles Davis or John Coltrane. Sade can never be duplicated.
