On her marriage to Christopher French: “We are best friends. We completely balance each other out. He’s a very good listener. And he’s the most patient man I have ever met. I’m not very patient. I’m such an energetic person, I’ll get into these “Wanna dance?” moments. I think it’s the kid in me. But he allows me to be who I am.”
On Robin Williams: He was one of the nicest people. Whenever I was around Robin, I just wanted to hug him the entire time. He was just a humble, nice man. And for how many years he’d been doing this, he was the most professional person. He was the first one on his mark├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥he would be waiting for everybody else. It was funny because at the first table read, I was so nervous because Robin Williams was sitting at the table. And he laughed out loud at one of my lines. I remember telling my friends, “You know you’ve had a good day when you’ve made Robin Williams laugh.”
On Brittany Murphy as inspiration: “I also looked up to Brittany Murphy, growing up. I met her backstage at a Kids’ Choice Awards. I was doing pilots, but they weren’t getting picked up. You kind of get to this point where you’ve done it for so long where you’re like, “Is this what I’m supposed to be doing?” I was just like, “I am your biggest fan.” She said, “Are you an actress? OK, you gotta keep going. Whatever you do, never give up.” She pinkie-promised me, and it was such a boost of confidence. I always want to be that person for others, but I am very shy.”
On her new role in Clipped: “This is my most mature role. I have never felt more confident with who I am. I’m turning 30, so maybe it has something to do with age, but I love it.”
On past relationships: “Like in my past relationships, I used to passive-aggressively tweet. When I got out of one relationship, I said something like “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.” I was like, ‘I probably shouldn’t have shared that with everybody.’
“We obviously weren’t right for each other, but for some reason I thought I needed to be in it. The first time we broke up, it was shattering because I didn’t see it coming. So then I built up walls because I didn’t want to get hurt again. But I ended up back in it. There was just this one moment where we had broken up again, and I was like, “You know what? This is such a cycle that is not healthy, and it’s not OK.” I was shooting a movie and I was like, “I love myself, and I love being by myself, so what am I in this for?” And I just ended it. I would go over to that guy now and be like, “Thank you so much because I wouldn’t have been ready to be in this relationship [with my husband].” It’s the harder things that make you who you are.”
On misconceptions people have about her:
“I think people have a perspective of me that I’m this blonde and I just like to shop. I’m deeper than what people expect. Even with my production company, people think I have somebody else running it, but then they start to see, ‘Wow, she does do it.'”
On women in Hollywood: “It’s a really exciting time for women. A couple of months ago, I had dinner with my girlfriends. One of my friends had booked an episode of something, I had booked this indie movie and Vanessa Hudgens was starting Gigi on Broadway. So it became a celebration that all of our friends were kicking ass. I feel like it’s so important to support other women and their dreams. My production company├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥Blondie Girl Productions├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥is me and my sister, and every time I meet a female producer, I’m like, “Yeah, let’s do this” because usually it’s a lot of dudes! It’s a hard business to break into. It’s hard to tell women’s stories because they don’t know where the audience is for female-driven movies. But it’s like, look at Bridesmaids! We are there!”
On working out: “[People should] dedicate at least an hour every day to something fitness-related. Any physical activity helps your health and is also a good stress reliever. Monday, Wednesday and Friday I work with my trainer, Jason Walsh. I do kickboxing on Thursday. And I’ll squeeze in a sculpt yoga class on, like, Tuesday.”
