 before she turned her attention to acting.

When I was 13, I was flat as a board and totally unhappy about it. I would write in my diary every day, Oh, if I could just have a B cup by summer! I actually prayed for big boobs. So I developed at about 14, and then I was 15, 16, 17, and they kept going.

Discussing her bust in an interview with Maxim (June 2000)

Oh God — I look back now, and it seems so gross. At just 14 years old, I had to wear a thong bikini. And then they used that scene in the trailer, so my entire school saw it! There are still men who come up to me today and say, "You were really hot in that film!" I was 14, for God's sake!

Discussing her scene in wikipedia:en:My Father The Hero|My Father The Hero in an interview with FHM (October 2000)

I lived in a town called New Canaan, which is just outside of Connecticut, where they are far too snobby to even mention celebrities. Many American towns are famous for things like, "See the World's Largest Ball of String!" I think my town's would probably have to be "Most Pretentious People".

About New Canaan, her hometown, in an interview with FHM (October 2000) :Interview in Allure magazine (June 2007)

I think people don't expect a lot from me. I'm trying to think at what age I noticed it was more about how I looked and less about what I do, but to me that was never the interesting part about me. I had nothing to do with my looks.

I do think you've got to fight a lot of the time to be respected in business, in relationships, in life. I learned that early in my career.

I have very little patience for people who whine and complain about life not being fair. It's just the risk of life. The only thing to do is live as much as you can and as best you can, and just sort of swing it from there.

Yeah, I have giant breasts — in a bra. It's so disconcerting — there are so many women now with fake breasts that that's the standard; that's what you're supposed to look like. But real boobs don't look like that, and a lot of working out won't make them look like that.

I have a real problem giving up that kind of control. You know, my mother helps me.

On not having a stylist. :Interview in InStyle magazine (August 2009)

I'm still figuring out who I am. But at least I know what I want.

My sense of humor is the raunchier, inappropriate kind. It's so much funnier than the quirky stuff.
