Personal Quotes (4)

I relate to her struggle with who she's trying to be. She's not feeling comfortable with restrictions and I remember being that way at 17 and rebelling against what everyone wanted me to be and who I thought I wanted to be, so I related to aspect of her. Not the rich part though. (Relating to her character in ATL)
Barbra Streisand has always been an inspiration for me. I admire Jennifer Lopez because she's been against all the odds and she's made such a name for herself and she can put her name on anything and it sells and I admire that about her, but Barbara Streisand and Woody Allen are my favorites.
I'm really big neo-soul, hip hop fan. I like going to concerts like floe try. I love doing that on my downtime. I listen to music and hang out with my friends and try to read up on scripts and stuff.
[on being the daughter of a caucasian Jewish father and an African-American mother] Whatever your ethnicity is... in this life you are going to be on a journey to discover who you are and how you feel about yourself... I do remember being teased by my cousins on my mom's side for not being Black enough... And then I'd spend the summer with my dad and be sent to all white summer camps where I was 'that Black girl.'... If someone thinks I'm not Black enough that's their issue... I'm okay with who I am and it is what is. I'm a Black woman like my mother, and I love who my father is, and I love both sides of me. Nobody makes a big deaI about it anymore because I won't take that anymore.
