Personal Quotes (15)

What I know in life runs the gamut of the "feminist experience". The true meaning of feminism is this: to use your strong womanly image to gain strong results in society.
I don't now if I'd recommend surgery - Women's bodies are beautiful - I've had a love/hate relationship with my breasts my whole life. (New York Post)
I am the ultimate California girl, which is funny, being that I'm Canadian.
Natural beauty takes at least two hours in front of a mirror. (My mom's quote)
With low expectations, it's very easy to surprise people.
We must educate ourselves and our children to understand that porn is for losers, they write, a boring, wasteful and dead-end outlet for people too lazy to reap the ample rewards of healthy sexuality.
[on Julian Assange] We talk about the world. He's a very good teacher. Julian is one of my favorite people. He is a refugee. He might be the most famous, refugee of our time - famous for being persecuted. [2017]
[on Julian Assange] Julian is trying to free the world by educating it. It is a romantic struggle - I love him for this. I understand that our 'affair' and the curiosity surrounding that might bring some attention to his situation. That's fine, but I'd rather not go into private details. Let's just say everyone deserves love. [2017]
[why WikiLeaks is the only trustworthy source of information] There are people in the world that don't question authority. They just think, 'Oh, somebody smarter than me has figured it out, and I'm gonna go on with my day and I don't have any feeling about it because I'm too busy.' I think that's dangerous. [2018]
[on Julian Assange] We talk about everything. We talk about the Bible, we talk about what's happening with my kids, what's happening with his family. It's not just about politics, even though I do take a lot of notes and it's so overwhelming, the information he gives me. [2018]
[on Hugh Hefner] I hate when people say bad things about him because I believe he empowered women and I believe he did so many great things for civil rights. I say Playboy was my university. I learned about activism, I learned about art, I learned about artists, and there were always really colorful, wonderful people there. It wasn't seedy or salacious or sleazy. It was cool. [2018]
[on her most unpleasant casting, for the Steven Seagal movie Under Siege (1992)] I remember him saying to me, "If you don't do it, then that girl across the hall will do it, and she'll get the job." And I said, "Well, good, goodbye." [2018]
[on sexual misconduct during castings] You need to have that Spidey sense or whatever it is that this is not right. When someone answers the door in a bathrobe, don't go in that room. Or if you go in the room, get that role. [Laughs] Sorry, now I'm really in trouble. I remember Revlon and Guess Jeans both offered me huge campaigns, and I didn't feel right about going into a room and sitting on a bed. I just had this sense that this was not going to go well. [2018]
I speak at the Kremlin or I speak at Vladivostok at the economic conference about green energy and a green economy. And I don't know what people are expecting from me. I can talk about whales and the environment, biodiversity of the oceans. I can talk about anything I want because I think people are still looking at me, trying to figure out, 'Why is she here?' [2018]
[when her first starring vehicle, Barb Wire (1996), was introduced to buyers at Cannes in 1995] This is before we shot one frame of film. It was so out of control. Boats were running into each other and people were falling off the boats with cameras. I was in complete shock. [2018]
