Personal Quotes (6)

Controversy is what I'm all about.
At 10, I tried to act like a boy so I could go fishing and not have to do dishes. At 15, I wept over a broken nail and feathered my hair until it hurt. At 21, desperate to be taken seriously as a lesbian, I got a crew cut and tried to change my walk from a sashay to a saunter. At 24 I made a movie that proclaimed me "dyke" once and for all, and now I am a girly girl with the innards of a truck driver.
I'm a bad girl in good girls clothing.
[on BloodRayne (2005)] The only person at the premiere, at Mann's Chinese Theater, who was laughing out loud was me.
[on BloodRayne (2005)] I would say that about 20% of what I wrote is on the screen. The producer called me, when the movie was just being finished, and he said, "Don't be alarmed, Guin. Uwe (Boll) changed a lot of the script." Uwe doesn't really speak English. "And then he let the actors take a crack at it."
One of the many things I love about being female is that I am absolutely 100% positive that I don't have any kids.
