Personal Quotes (21)

I love to simplify and edit the contents of just about anything, but women's closets hold particular appeal to me. I edit mine about four times a year and hold a yearly 'clothing swap' to encourage my girlfriends to do the same.
I love to act because I love trying on other people's skin.
I've gone up to a random guy in a grocery store before and said, 'Hi, I think you're cute. Are you single?' I'm not smooth. I just put it out there.
After 'Entourage,' it completely opened up my casting within the industry. People saw me for a lot of roles that I hadn't been seen for before. Older roles. I went out this pilot season for a lot of lawyers and doctors. And cops - which I haven't quite mastered yet; I find that quite difficult.
When I was little, I was a voracious reader, and that really led me to acting as well. I loved being transported into someone else's life, and that's what reading provided me. I also really love to entertain people.
I love being a mom - I really do! I didn't realize how much I would love it!

Wil Wheaton, Patrick Stewart and Jonathan Frakes were all the early formidable crushes of my girlhood.
I am terrified of submarines.
I like playing smart women very, very much because I definitely learn from them.
I love food and am very good at improvising when preparing it - it's a really creative experience for me.
I'm such a dog person. I dunno, I just feel like it really enriches your life, to have something to care for.
I relate to Nora's transformation in Henrik Ibsen's 'A Doll's House,' and I also relate to both sisters' journeys in John Madden's film 'Proof.'
Conflict is always fun to play.
I would love to do more films. I really like the whole process of doing that. I like how close you become to everybody.
Oh my gosh, I would love to guest star on 'Entourage.'
I would love to do a big-budget movie musical - I feel like there is one big musical movie a year. And I'm always there at the theater to see them - I love them.
You're not going to get every part, so you can't base your sense of self-worth around whether or not you actually land the job.
I gain a lot of confidence through study.
