Personal Quote:

[on managing her career] I don't want to have it on the front burner. I like it just simmering. I feel at ease right now because it's at a manageable level. People aren't chasing me around with cameras and making me feel uncomfortable anymore. I often say fame is kind of like a drug or like sugar: when it's controlling you it doesn't feel good at all.
