  • I had a kind of anger inside of me that made me want to prove myself all the time. I constantly got into fights and usually ended up in the principal’s office. My mother had her hands full with my sister and me. And yet those years taught me to be independent. I once thought that to be “normal” — to have a mother, father, 2.7 kids and a dog — was to be happy. I learned pretty quickly that wasn’t my “thing” at all. (on her troubled childhood)
  • I was a real pain in the ass actually, kind of obnoxious. Moving around a lot and being the “new kid” on the block affected me. My life wasn’t too normal in terms of Friday night dates and all that. (on her younger days)
  • “I’ve said that if we were going to do a reunion, they have to pay me the money they should have paid me when I did the original” (on the prospect of participating in a “Melrose Place” reunion)
  • I know that place of being an actor and wishing and wanting for things to happen for you, but the truth is that it happens inside.
