Diamonds are a girl’s best friend and dogs are a man’s best friend. Now you know which sex has more sense.
I walked into this industry blond with red lips, and I will leave this industry blond with red lips. Mark my words.
I was bored one day so my Dad took me to this acting school. I liked it more than having fun – I liked it for a job.
You know what, I have faith in people. I think people want to see something new and different. They don’t want to see anything that they’ve seen before. They don’t want to have it worked out in the first 10 minutes how it will end. I think people are really smart and sophisticated.
I don’t think these women are stupid. I think they’re selling a personality that’s very marketable: Wouldn’t it be fun if we were all gorgeous and didn’t have a care? But creating a cultural icon out of someone who goes, “I’m stupid, isn’t it cute?” makes me want to throw daggers at them! I want to say to them, “My grandma did not fight for what she fought for, and my mother did not fight for what she fought for, so you can start telling women it’s fun to be stupid.” Saying that to young women, little girls, my daughter?

And then if they don’t appreciate it, you can feel like you did it in vain.

You don’t just decide to destroy a person by making up stuff, and no one at ‘SNL’ is writing to go after someone.
